A traditional facial is one of the best ways to take care of your face by cleaning, exfoliating, and nourishing the skin. A traditional facial can help your skin look younger, brighter, fresher, and tighter.
Each of our facials begins with a complimentary consultation during which we explore your skincare goals, your diet, your lifestyle, your water intake, and discuss any medications or supplements that you take that can affect your skin. After a thorough cleansing, we analyze your skin under a lit magnifying lamp to determine your precise skin type and identify any skin conditions that may benefit from special or additional treatment. We will then go over products and treatments designed to address your unique skincare needs with you. Our traditional facials continue with gentle, thorough exfoliation. Depending on the type of facial you have, the exfoliation process may employ a scrub to rub away dead skin cells or application of a chemical exfoliant to loosen and break down the bond between skin cells. This is not the same as a chemical peel; a separate service which involves using stronger acid-based compounds to completely remove the top layer of skin (epidermis) and stimulate collagen regeneration in sub-dermal tissue for longer-lasting, more dramatic results.
After exfoliation (and extraction of dirt and oil from the pores, if needed), the facial continues with a gentle facial massage, which will help relax you and will stimulate your skin and facial muscles. This relaxing massage is followed by the application of a mask targeted to your skin type and condition to help hydrate, soothe, and stimulate your skin and draw out any remaining oil and dirt from your pores. We complete your facial by applying products designed to protect your renewed and refreshed skin from the sun and we will offer you advice on home skin care and products that will help preserve your skin’s natural radiance for weeks after the facial.
It’s a good idea to have a facial about once a month because that’s generally how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Of course, if you enhance your facial with other procedures, such as a chemical peel or laser treatment, the treatments can easily last much longer and be repeated at less frequent intervals.
We offer several different types of facials for different skin types and skincare needs. Don’t worry if you don’t know which facial is right for you! If you pick a facial that isn’t the best one for your skin, we will advise you of all of your other options in the treatment room and can easily target the treatment to something perfectly suited to your skin type and your skincare concerns. Other treatments can be incorporated into your facial to achieve even greater benefits and results. Just ask your aesthetician for details!

- ANTI-OXIDANT FACIAL – (for aging and/or all skin types)
Protect your skin against the effects of environmental exposure and aging. If you’re like most people, you want smooth, healthy, protected skin. Antioxidants are nutrients and enzymes that help to prevent and repair damage to your body’s tissues. Unlike sunscreens and moisturizers, antioxidants help to protect your skin from the inside out by guarding and defending your cells from damage, encouraging cell and tissue growth, and promoting cell repair. Antioxidants also help to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Our antioxidant facial uses natural antioxidants to boost and firm up your skin, and helps defend it against the damage and stress caused by environmental exposure. Let our antioxidant facial give your skin a youthful, age-reversing boost that will help defend it against the harsh Arizona climate.

By reducing and regulating oily skin, promoting regeneration, and reducing bacteria, your skin will be back to flawless in no time. This is an excellent facial to repeat as needed to balance the pH of your skin and to help prevent future breakouts.
