- Meet The Essential Facial, Your New Go-To for Relaxation
Sometimes what you and your skin need is just a little TLC. Well we’ve got you covered with our Essential Facial. This treatment imparts both immediate and long term benefits to the skin while also allowing you to unplug and relax your mind, body, and soul.
The Essential Facial is what you might consider to be a traditional facial. What we’re looking to provide you with is one hour of deep relaxation while also ensuring that your skin stays clean and healthy. The goal of this treatment is to provide mental and physical relaxation, to deeply clean the skin, provide extractions if necessary, stimulate blood flow and decrease inflammation.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
The Essential Facial includes a 20 minute massage of the face, neck, and décolleté which is really the cornerstone of the treatment. The deep massage helps to decrease inflammation, encourages blood flow, and really softens the muscles in the face, improving on circulation and tone.
The Essential Facial can be done weekly and pairs well with more advanced treatments like Morpheus8 and Forma. It can be done one week following our Miracle 10 facial peel treatment or a Botox treatment.
The Essential Facial uses customized Miracle 10 skincare products tailored to your skin type and goals and can be done year round (no need to avoid the sun).
Possibly the best thing about the Essential Facial is that it’s the perfect treatment for everyone. It’s safe for all skin types and you can even have it done if you’re pregnant or nursing. It’s equally a great starter facial for those who have never had a facial, and is gentle enough that it can also be beneficial for young skin, especially to keep that teenage skin healthy looking through all the hormonal ups and downs.
The Essential Facial is basically a 60 minute pampering treatment with skin health benefits. It will leave you feeling relaxed and your skin will be cleansed and totally revitalized.
When you come in for your treatment one of our MD providers will offer you a gown to change into. Once you’ve changed and you’re ready and feeling relaxed on the treatment bed, your aesthetician will cleanse the skin on your face and neck with one of our Miracle 10 cleansers. This will be followed by the application of Enzyme to the face, for gentle exfoliation of the skin, and will then be removed with a hot towel.
After your skin has been prepped your provider will consult with you on your skin condition and any concerns that you might have and customize any skincare products to your skin type and needs.
Your provider will then turn out the lights and will begin a 20 minute massage of the face, neck, and décolleté. The massage will be done with a variety of gentle Miracle 10 skincare products.
After your massage, your provider will proceed with extractions if any were determined to be needed during your consultation. Solution or CO2 will be applied following any extractions.
Our soothing Miracle 10 Mask will then be applied for about 10 minutes.
At the end of the treatment, your provider will turn the lights back on, and finish with the application of stem cell serum and rich moisture or light serum depending on your skin type.
There’s no downtime associated with the Essential Facial. Only mild active ingredients are used, so you should not experience any redness or reactions following your treatment.
If you are just starting out with facials we recommend an initial series of 10 treatments spaced one week apart and then monthly maintenance treatments for maximum benefits.
But truly there is no overarching rule on how many treatments you should have. You can try the treatment once and decide it’s not for you or you’ll love it so much that you’ll want to make it a part of your weekly routine.
