Customized Facials

What are customized facials?

Come and experience a customized facial by our licensed esthetician Camille.

Customized facials are tailored treatments to help address specific skin concerns. They are a great treatment option for patients with acne. The esthetician can safely extract clogged pores (also known as comedones, blackheads, and whiteheads) and avoid infection and scarring. The extractions help reduce inflammation associated with acne. While most facials are performed to treat acne, they can also help decrease redness and improve skin hydration. Customized facials can be performed during any time of the year, even when patients are in the sun.

What can you expect during a customized facial treatment?

After makeup is removed, the face is cleansed and massaged while steam is applied. This improves the skin’s circulation and facilitates lymphatic drainage. The clogged pores are manually extracted. Depending on the skin’s needs, various treatments can be performed. Microdermabrasion can be performed for an additional fee to gently resurface the skin. High frequency can reduce redness and inflammation. A face mask is then applied to help close the pores and hydrate the skin. Moisturizer and sunscreen are applied.

What are the side effects of customized facials?
