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 peeling/flaky skin. 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 (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, or copy and paste product ingredient lists into cosdna.com to see a breakdown. 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.
What is your cancellation policy?
24 hour cancellation notice required or a fee up to the value of the service requested applies.
