Get the Most From Your Facial Treatments

Your facial doesn’t need to begin and end at the spa.  Here are 3 simple tips you can try to ensure your skin remains healthy, glowing and clear between spa visits.

Prior to your appointment:

* Pamper Your Skin: Avoid tanning and sunbathing one week prior to your                    appointment.  Do not exfoliate your skin either.  Sun and scrubs have a tendency to make your skin more sensitive, which may require you to postpone services such as peels or microderms.

The day of your appointment:

* Go Au Natural:  Put off wearing makeup until the day after your treatment.  Your skin  needs time to absorb all the products used during your service in order to achieve the best results.

Following your appointment:

Avoid the sun:  Keep out of the sun for at least three days following a facial service such as a peel or microdermabrasion.  Professional exfoliation exposes fresh, new layers of skin which are very sensitive to sunlight.  When you go outside take extra care to use an SPF of 30 or higher and remember to reapply every 90 minutes.
