F.A.Q About Facials

THE VAMPIRE FACIAL  (Platelet Rich Plasma)~MicroNeedling Dermapen with PRP injections 60 minutes $1200

THE DERMAPEN~MicroNeedling Facial Therapy  60 minutes $299

THE PLATINUM~Microdermabrasion Oxygen Therapy 60 minutes $175

The most talked about facial by celebrities! By the age of 30 skin has already lost over 25% of its oxygen and by the age of 40-50 the skins ability to consume and retain oxygen (the necessary element for all things living) has been impaired. The loss of oxygen results in more wrinkles, fine lines and dull looking skin.

This sophisticated dual therapy is a Microdermabrasion followed by an O2 Oxygen Facial. Microdermabrasion ensures efficient exfoliation in a gentle, non-invasive manner. The applied suction clears away the dead cells and congestion, stimulates the blood supply while increasing your skin cells turnover. Then followed by the O2 Oxygen Facial which will infuse 100% Pure Liquid Oxygen into the deeper layers of the skin. Pure Oxygen will replenish lost oxygen to restructure the skin, visibly plumbing out the lines and wrinkles. The results are immediate but Oxygen Therapy continues to work long after the treatment, stimulating cell regeneration. (Available in a 6 Series Treatment at a Special Rate)

Dermaplaning  ~ 60 minutes $115

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes to exfoliate the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).  Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. 

Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. IT DOES NOT CAUSE THE HAIR TO GROW BACK THICKER

The facial will include a customized treatment masque or glycolic application, immediately after the dermaplaning, depending on your skin type. Your skin will have never looked and felt so great

Frequently Asked Questions About Facials

A facial is a deep cleansing treatment applied to the face for healthy skin hygiene. Facials are designed to eliminate clogged pores, blackheads, and other impurities affecting the appearance of the skin. Facials can incorporate several different steps that can include the use of creams, masques, peels, steam, exfoliation, lotions, and massage. These treatments were once thought to be only for women, but today many men are getting facials on a regular basis as well.

 

What exactly does a facial involve?

A facial usually involves a few basic steps, but each one is customized for your skin’s specific needs. Initially, your skin is cleansed and then the esthetician does a skin analysis while looking through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. You then undergo exfoliation, usually while a steam vapor is directly at your face. Extraction of blackheads then follows, if appropriate for your skin condition. To relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles, the esthetician will perform a facial massage and then apply a masque designed for your specific skin type (e.g. dry, oily, sensitive, etc.). Finally, there is the application of specific protective creams and sunscreens.

 

Who gives a facial?

The facial is given by our licensed esthetician, who has special training in skin care.

 

How often should I get a facial?

Initially, it’s best to have a facial about every four to six weeks. After several facials, you can decrease your frequency to about four times per year, usually as the seasons change. You may need one more frequently if you are trying to clear up acne, especially when just starting off.

 

How long does a facial last?

A facial usually lasts about one hour.

 

What types of facial variations are there?

There are many variations on the classic European facial, including the “mini-facial” (cleansing without extractions) and specialty facials. Our esthetician will discuss your concerns and tailor the facial to your specific needs. Each of our facials is customized for your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions About O2 Oxygen Facial

 

What is an O2 Oxygen Facial?

An O2 Oxygen Facial is a treatment which PURE Oxygen is infused, along with other special serums of modified hyaluronic acid, essential vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants and amino peptides to the skin. Re-hydrated, plumped up skin in less than an hour sets this treatment apart from any other facial treatments.

 

What does Infuse mean?

An Infusion refers to the process of applying a hydrophilic (water loving) Serum containing hyaluronic acid technology to the skin. Additionally, it draws or carries other active and beneficial skin specific ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals and amino peptides to the skin.

 

How is Oxygen used to treat wounds and burns?

Oxygen, when applied directly to open skin is an innovative approach to healing difficult wounds and burns. Direct oxygen to the vital fluids at the surface and is used to reduce bacteria and to speed healing.

 

Which skin conditions benefite from Oxygen Facials?

Oxygen Facials help increase the skin’s moisture levels and targets dry, dehydrated and prematurely aging skin, sensitive skin, sensitized skin, sun damage, brown spots, skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, post inflammatory pigmentation and problem prone skin conditions.

 

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is your body’s natural moisture factor and the ability to retain and hold moisture is the secret to youthful, healthy vibrant skin. As we age our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid which is thought to be one of the leading causes of skin aging.

 

Is it proven safe?

Oxygen Facials can be used on all skin types, including sensitive, acne, and rosacea prone skin conditions. May also be recommended as a cooling calming treatment for post sun and wind exposed skin conditions.

 

Does oxygen cause free radicals?

While oxygen is critical to all oxygen breathing organisms, oxygen also produces free radicals as a by-product of normal oxygen metabolism. Fortunately, the body produces protective free radical fighting enzymes; glutathione, catalase and sodium oxide dismustase to neutralize the majority of this activity and additional dietary and supplemental antioxidants are also recommended. There is no evidence that oxygen treatments cause free radical damage; in fact most scientists and physicians argue that even if topical oxygen could penetrate the skin it would be such an insignificant amount; basically no more than your daily exposure to oxygen.

 

What about Oxygen skin care creams and mask?

There are currently two ways to incorporate oxygen into skin care products. Yeast cell derivatives or glycoproteins claim to help transport oxygen to the skin. Hydrogen Peroxide and Benzyl Peroxide both donate oxygen when applied to the skin but have been shown to create free radical activity and are not recommend for sensitive and/or sun exposed skin.
