Signature Facials Frequently Asked Questions
Read our most frequently asked questions to learn more about our Signature Facials.
What am I to expect after the facial?
You may appear flushed or slightly red, along with purging that may come up a few days after the treatment. This is completely normal and can even happen with waxing and lasering.
Will I purge or breakout after a facial?
After a facial you may experience some purging or breakouts and you may see more than normal. As with getting a facial we are opening up the lymph nodes and getting the blood moving in the face. While sometimes you may come in with only a few breakouts a facial can bring out some congestion that may be just under the skin waiting to come out. This is normal but may not always happen.
Which facial is best to do just before an event?
Any all of our facials are great to do before an event but we do suggest that you come in two weeks before and have a consultation with which would be best for the type of event that you are going to. This will also help us to keep you from having purging happening the day before or the day of the event. We recommend the derma plane, oxygen, or microcurrent before an event but always call if you have any questions as to when is the best time prior to the event to come in.
Will I experience redness or sensitivity?
Depending of the facial you may have some sensitivity with facials that are a more medical approach. With any facial you will have some redness as we are promoting the blood to move in the skin, you tend to just look flushed or glowing. If you are not using active ingredients at home in your skin care routine you may have some sensitivity from that.
Do I need to stay out of the sun?
We always recommend to stay out of the sun as much as possible after a facial we do apply an SPF to you after your treatment but at we have exfoliated the skin. With some treatment such as Infusion, Dermaplane Facial, IPL, and Microneedling we do want you to avoid the sun for at least 24 hours or if you are going to be out to wear a hat that covers your face.
What if I have never had a facial before?
It is best to come in for a consultation with us so we can get a good look at your skin and what some of your concerns might be with your skin, this also gives us the chance to see you before you pick something that you may not need for your skin.
What if I don’t know what facial is best for me?
It is always best that if your are unsure of which one to pick is to come in for a skin analysis this way we can take a good look at your skin along with being able to discuss what would be the best treatment plane. The other thing that you can do is come in for the naturopathic or oxygen facials as these are the most calming facials and we can still take a good look at your skin plus you get a full facial.
How often should I get a facial done?
You can get them done once every month. If you are getting ready for an event or if you are having more problems with your skin than normal you can always come in once every two weeks for treatment. The amount of times and the timing can change based on what you are having done.
Can I workout after a facial?
We recommend to work out before the facial and to wait 24 hours after to workout, as we just cleaned the skin and we don’t want you putting toxins and sweat back into and on the skin.
