Skin care FAQ'S
Why is a facial important?- Facials are NOT a luxury. To maintain healthy skin and treat serious skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and aging, regular maintenance and professional products are a necessity. As a Licensed Esthetician, I have the products, tools, and knowledge to help you correct these issues, and help you maintain clear, healthy skin.
Do I really need to use professional products?- ABSOLUTELY!! Professional products, such as Skin Script, contain many active ingredients that help target specific skin conditions. Over the counter products are mainly "fluff," and do not contain high enough concentrations of these ingredients to effectively address your concerns. The term "you get what you pay for" definitely applies here.
What type of facials do you offer?- All of my facials are completely customized. Every single person has different skin types and skin conditions, so I complete a thorough consultation and skin analysis to determine what you skin needs and how to treat it.
How often should I get a facial- Once a month is ideal for regular maintenance. This is because our skin cell turn over cycle is every 28 days, so once this cycle is complete it's time for professional exfoliation and maintenance. If you have more serious concerns, more frequent facials may be necessary. We will discuss these options during consultation.
How do I prepare for my facial?- Please come to your appointment with a clean face, free of makeup or products. For the consultation, also bring any products or medications that you are currently taking.
What products do you use?- I use Skin Script, a line that specializes in corrective skin care for all skin types and ethnicities. This product line was created by highly respected Dermatologists and Estheticians to treat your skin with natural, but effective ingredients. I pair this line with Viktoria Deann peptides. These peptides are beneficial to the health, repair, and rejuvenation of the skin.
