What to expect during a facial

We will ask you questions about your skin and any skin sensitivities you may have to determine the right kinds of products for your skin type. Once that has been determined we start with

Cleansing gently massage a cleanser into your face and neck to remove any initial traces of makeup and dirt, using a soft cloth to gently remove the cleanser from your face using warm water.

Exfoliation scrub.

Massage improve the lymphatic drainage in your body using manual massage and Gua Sha to improve blood circulation, relieve neck stiffness and back pain, reduce inflammation and face puffiness, tighten and reduce pores to improve skin texture and tone.

Extractions help clear any pores that are clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can come from blackheads and acne. Extractions with a special metal tool.

Mask a custom facial mask will then be applied to your face. You will then be asked to sit with the mask on for anywhere between 10-20 minutes.

Serums and Moisturizers are applied based on what your skin type is.  The Jade Gua SHa roller is then used to stimulate collagen production, and promote blood circulation, lift your face and neck to smooth  tighten and firm fine lines and wrinkles, eye bags, dark circles around the eyes and helps to close and minimize enlarged pores.  It supports manual lymph drainage to reduce puffiness and eliminate accumulated toxins. The creams and serums will also penetrate deeper into the skin for better absorption.

While it’s normal to feel a little discomfort during your facial, it’s important to remember than your complexion may not look picture-perfect immediately after your appointment. Since a facial involves the process of pulling impurities deep within your pores, you may experience redness hours after your appointment.
