How to Prepare for Your Facial

Getting a monthly facial is one of the best things you can do to recharge the skin.  To ensure the best experience and avoid adverse reactions, it is important that you plan for success.  Below is helpful information that should be reviewed before your booking your appointment:

If you are using any medications (all apply), please consult with your physician before getting a facial.  Certain medications, even when taken orally can sometimes thin/compromise the skin.  If this is the case, the micropeel facial and the exfoliation step in the basic facial should be avoided. 

Who is not a Candidate for the Micropeel: Auto Immune Disorders, Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Cancer, Sunburned or Inflamed, Open lesions, Grade III + Acne.  A basic facial can be performed but it is important that you inform the esthetician if you have any of these conditions.

Retinol/Retina A users: Retinol should be discontinued at least 5 days before your treatment. Product usage can resume 24-48 hours after treatment. 

Accutane (Isotretinoin) users:  This medication should be discontinued at least a month prior to receiving a treatment. Please consult with your physician before and after your facial treatment. 

Allergies: Please notify our esthetician of any allergies you may have.  Depending on the allergy, a patch test may be recommended a few days before your appointment.

Tips: Although not required, if you're satisfied with the service, we recommend tipping the esthetician. It is common practice to tip 20% at the end of service.
