My skin is very sensitive. I'm worried about having it become irritated or breaking out from a facial.
This would be a great reason to come in for a facial. We would start with a complete consultation and I will go over your history of the products you use, review past irritations and explain how certain ingredients may have caused these reactions. After working with your skin during a treatment, I will supply you with a sample package of products for you to take home try that I think will make a positive difference for you and your skin.
What will a facial do to improve my skin?
You should notice an immediate improvement in softer, more comfortable skin. During the facial treatment, I exfoliate the dead cells that are there to protect your skin but can build up and create dry, tight or peely flakes. This happens quite frequently when the weather gets colder and furnaces are running.
How do I know which facial treatment or products are right for me?
We would decide together after your initial consultation. I suggest the Normalizing Treatment as a good place to start.
How long do the treatments take?
If this is your first visit, I include an additional 30 minutes for consultation and questions, so a Normalizing Treatment that usually takes one hour would take 1 1/2 hours.
How often do I need to have a facial?
I suggest treatments every four to six weeks. I do appreciate the fact that this an an investment and if you are unable to come in so often, please come when you can. Four times a year is better than not at all.
What is different about the products that you sell? I am already using a very expensive, high quality line of skin care products that are all natural.
All of the products that I use and sell are non-comedogenic (Definition: believed to cause comedones or pore blockages. use of comedogenic products can contribute to acne). Many cosmetics and toiletry products make claims of being "oil-free" yet that claim is very misleading; oil substitutes are synthetic and are often more harmful than the excess sebum found in the skin that can clog your pores. Click here to get a (printable) list of skin care ingredients to avoid. I would advise avoiding all ingredients graded 3, 4 or 5. Remember to check all products that would come in contact with your vulnerable skin; besides make up, consider your deodorant, toothpaste and all moisturizers and sunscreens.
