About our facials
Our facial treatments combine products selected from the Alumier MD, ZO skin health and Glo Minerals lines which are rich in vitamins, botanical extracts, peptides and anti-oxidants to address specific skin concerns which may include dryness, oiliness, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage, acne, or scarring.

Medical Facials are different from Spa Facials in that medical-grade skin-care products containing higher concentrations of active ingredients are used. These facials are result driven with possible downtime rather than a spa facials which are more relaxing, and pampering. Some of our facials may involve intense pulsated light (IPL), medical grade acids, or retin-A boosters.

There are certain measures that you need to take before you have this treatment done on your face. We’ve listed what is essential to do prior to the treatment in order to get the best possible results.
You should avoid waxing or any other laser usage on skin for about 48 hours prior to the treatment.
Stop using any of your daily skin care products that contain vitamin A, glycolic acid, or any other ingredient that is used for resurfacing. Such products must be stopped from being used three days prior to the treatment. Active skin infection, acne breakout, Pregnancy, breast feeding, or Accutane use within 6 months of treatment is contraindicated.
It is common for you to feel heat and slight tingling or spicy sensation when the fire masque comes in contact with your skin. It’s also normal for you to feel the same when the fire masque is being taken off your skin. The slight burning sensation will neutralize and your skin will be completely soothed once the rejuvenating ice masque is applied on your face.
Once the treatment has been completed, the skin coach is expected to use several other complementary serums in order to further hydrate, protect and soothe your skin.
This “Fire & Ice Facial” has no downtime. This means you won’t experience any skin shredding, redness, inflammation or irritation at all. However, it is expected that after few hours of the treatment your skin may seem flushed, but this effect will wear off within the next 4 to 6 hours.
