What are Facials?

Is your skin in need of a pick-me-up? Or perhaps you are looking for a treatment that will pamper your skin for a youthful glow. If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from a facial. A facial is a multi-step skin treatment that is performed to nourish your skin.

Facials offer many benefits, including:

  • Exfoliates.
  • Deeply cleanses.
  • Increases circulation.
  • Slows premature aging.
  • Detoxifies.
  • And more!

Candidates for Facials

Both men and women can benefit from facials to improve their skin health and obtain a healthy glow. Let us know if you have eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne rosacea, recent sunburn, or take medications that may affect treatment.

The Treatment

There are many different types of facials that can be performed today, including lymphatic massage, electric current, anti-aging, brightening, and more. However, in general, a facial will consist of a series of steps. These may include cleansing, skin analysis to determine your skin type, steam to open pores, exfoliation to eliminate dead skin cells, extraction to remove blackheads and whiteheads, facial massage to stimulate your skin and blood flow, facial mask targeted to your skin type, and the application of toner, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreen.


“I have been a Botox patient for years and had my breast augmentation done as well. The doctor wasn't the typical doctor. He actually sat down and spent time with me making sure I fully understand everything and made me feel less anxious. The office is well kept and the staff was very quick and informative! I would recommend this place to everyone.”


There is usually no downtime required following a facial, so you can return to school or work as soon as you wish. You will be able to notice a glow to your skin after treatment, which should last for the next couple of days. Most people can receive a facial once a month to maintain results.
