Customized Medi-Facials FAQs

  • Can I wear any make-up after my medi-facial?

    Yes, you can wear makeup after your medi-facial. However, it is encouraged that you avoid wearing makeup until the next day to have maximum benefits from your medi-facial.

  • Is their any down time after a medi-facial?

    There is no significant downtime with my med-facials. All my medi-facials are customized to your specific skin care needs. The skin can have redness, which will subside within a few hours. Generally you leave with glowing SKIN! I will always take into account your lifestyle and customize accordingly.

  • What is a "series" of facials and why is it recommended?

    A series of facials is the best way to jumpstart your skincare maintenance, especially if you're looking for positive results, fast! Facial series are generally offered in a series of six, performed once a month for six months. Payment is paid in full after the first treatment of the series. Sorry, there is no such thing as a “Miracle Treatment” or a “Miracle Face Cream”

  • Why is the Advanced Skin Analysis Consultation mandatory?

    The Advanced Skin Analysis Consultation allows me to tailor your treatments and home care products to your skin’s requirements and your goals. It provides me with an in-depth, documented analysis so I can monitor your skin’s progress.

  • Will I break out after a facial?

    Sometimes.  It is important to know that if you do break out after receiving a facial it is not the facial that actually caused the breakout. The sebum was already there under the surface of your skin but after exfoliating your skin during the facial, it is possible to have the bacteria come to the surface quicker after receiving a facial.  This doesn't usually happen, but it can.  This is why if you are planning on a getting a facial for a special event it is best to come 10 days before the day of the event as this will ensure that your skin will be at its absolute best on your special day.

  • Why do I need to buy the prescribed home care products? I already have a home care routine!

    The key to optimal skin health is a skincare professional. By combining a customized at-home regimen with powerful in-office treatments and targeted skincare solutions, the result is healthier skin with visible improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging. Using professional products in a twice daily, medical esthetician tailored regimen, gives the skin cumulative repair. It increases the speed of the cell cycle, making skin appear younger and repair itself. A regimen that includes monthly facials, chemical peels, peptides, and hydration will plump up the skin. Using professional skin care products actually improves the skin instead of artificially and temporarily plumping up an area. The science of skin care has improved dramatically over the years, and chemists are creating products that use ingredients that tell the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, that improve dark spots, and smooth texture without the risks of more invasive procedures.
