Frequently asked questions

answers to most questions

  • My goal is to provide you with exceptional service. Service that surpasses your expectations, delights you to your core and encourages you to return regularly, because you're not only looking more radiant, you're feeling radiant. Providing a refuge of comfort and belonging... a place where you are free to COME AS YOU ARE, be seen, and return to your day feeling nourished and GLOWING. This is judgment-free space and everything shared is safe and confidential.
  • Thoroughly fill out the online intake form and submit prior to your service. 

  • If you are a new client please arrive 10 minutes early to allow for time to unwind, use the restroom, etc 

  • Feel free to come either bare-faced or with makeup. Any makeup will be removed during your cleanse.

  • Please turn off  or silence your cell phone during your appointment.

  • Come well-hydrated as many of the modalities I incorporate require good hydration for optimal results.

  • To allow yourself the ability to relax quickly and be at ease, refraining from stressful activity, news and/or social media 30 minutes prior to your appointment is encouraged.

  • Avoid using any aggressive exfoliants, peels, AHAs, retinols and/or vitamin A derivatives (Retin-A, Tretinoin, etc) for 7 days prior to your service.
  • You will disrobe privately and put on a spa wrap that will completely cover you.

  • You will be under the covers on a comfortable, heated table. Please let me know if the temperature needs adjusting.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs and rigorous activity 24 hours following your facial.

  • To allow for uninterrupted absorption and effectiveness from the applied topicals, I recommend going makeup-free the remainder of the day. Use of lipstick and/or eye makeup is ok.

  • If your treatment is in the afternoon or evening, there's no need to cleanse your skin before slumber.

  • Avoid exfoliants, peels, AHAs, retinols and vitamin A derivatives (Retin-A, Tretinoin, etc) for 7 days following your service.

  • To ensure the availability of your next appointment, booking your next appointment after your service is highly encouraged.

  • I wholeheartedly believe that the benefits of regular facials far surpass the creation of beautiful, healthy skin. Humans need touch. Belonging. Connection. Now more than ever our nervous system is overstressed and burdened, which deeply affects our quality of life. Slowing down to receive intentional, healing touch, and releasing fascia and muscle tension in the face and neck encourages a reset of the nervous system, which is vitally important to the wellness, vitality and functioning of all beings. When our parasympathetic system is engaged to, allowing for deeper receiving deeply affected by nurturing, physical touch the beauty and health of one's skin. 

  • To encourage clear, healthy skin, maintain results and improve the health and condition of your skin, I highly recommend receiving regular monthly facials.
