Receiving a facial should leave your face feeling refreshed, glowing, and beautiful. In no way should you feel discomfort. However, in some of the facials we provide, extractions are performed that involve mild pressure to clogged pores and acne-prone skin. The skin care therapist will always inquire whether or not you prefer extractions. We also use products with Retin-A, salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids. These products are designed to exfoliate skin to reveal fresher, more youthful skin and may produce a slight tingling sensation. Tingling is fine, burning is NOT. Your skin care therapist will communicate with you during this process to ensure you are comfortable at all times.
