Skincare FAQs

Q: Why and how often should I get a facial?
A: We recommend booking facial services approximately every 3-4 weeks. This is the typical skin life cycle, and regular facials will aid in new skin cell regeneration ensuring a natural glow.

Q: What kind of reaction could I expect after a facial? (Breakout, redness, etc.) How long will it last?
A: Reactions vary from person to person. This is why we recommend booking a skin consultation before booking any facial service with us. This service will ensure our customers are receiving the service best suited for their complexion. A skin consultation will also provide custom recommendations for day-to-day products to help you achieve the results you desire.

Q: Do I really need to apply SPF daily?
A: Yes! Whether it’s sunscreen or a moisturizer that contains SPF, applying SPF on a daily basis is the best and easiest way to prevent skin damage such as sunburns, skin cancers, and premature aging.

Q: Can I consult my esthetician about acne concerns?
A: Although estheticians cannot prescribe acne medication, consulting them for any skin concerns is a great place to start. We can analyze your skin and provide products and services that can help with your acne. Skincare is not one size fits all, and with the help of your esthetician, we can formulate a skin care regimen best suited for you to rule out acne caused by skincare routines. Depending on the source of your acne, certain acne conditions will require consultation with a dermatologist.

Q: How can I most effectively prevent ingrown hairs?
A: We cannot recommend regular exfoliation enough. Exfoliation will remove any dead skin cells and decrease clogged pores and ingrown hairs. We recommend exfoliating before and after waxing on a regular basis for the best results. If you need a product recommendation, ask your esthetician!

Q: How do I decide between full face waxing or dermaplaning?
A: Dermaplaning is a hair removal service that utilizes a dermatological scalpel to remove hair, specifically peach fuzz. The process exfoliates your skin leaving it smooth and soft. This makes makeup application easier and ensures your skincare products are working at their fullest capability. Waxing encapsulates all hair and removes it from the root. Waxing will remove all dark and coarse hairs in one swift pull. Waxing will provide hairless, smooth skin for a longer period of time and leave hair growing back softer and finer in the future.

Q: What are the benefits that come from microdermabrasion?
A: Microdermabrasion will brighten your overall complexion and even out your skin tone. This process will even out your skin tone by lightening acne scars and age spots. Additionally, this service will increase product absorption on your skin ensuring your skin care products work to their fullest capability.

If you are still uncertain, book a consultation with one of our licensed estheticians to determine the best skin care service for you!
