How often do I have to get a facial?
Every person's facial schedule varies depending on their skin type, skin condition and customized treatment that is created by their Esthetician.
How soon will I start seeing results from my facial?
Some people see results immediately, and your skin should feel different right away. The skin feels clean, smooth, hydrated, and reflects a new level of health that’s visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin aging, acne or hyper-pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow the advice of your professional skin therapist, and continue your home-care regimen.

What if I am on prescription?
You will be required to stop your prescription products, two-four weeks before starting on the program. I have found that they make the skin much too sensitive to use the system.
