Image Skincare

As a licensed esthetician, I only use Image Skincare PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT products for facials & peels.



A facial begins with a cleansing with cotton pads or sponges and a product chosen for your skin type (normal, dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature.)


Skin Analysis

I cover your eyes and look at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp that reveal various skin conditions.



Mechanical exfoliation has a gritty texture and usually happens while a steam vapor is directed at your face. A chemical peel can be a stand-alone treatment or part of the facial.



Removal of blackheads or whiteheads if you want it and need it.



A facial mask targeted to your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition.


Facial Massage

Classic strokes like effleurage to both relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles.



Application of toners and protective creams.


Finishing Touch

We discuss your treatment and followup skin care.

Once monthly facials are recommended to help aid in the cell turn over process which happens approximately every 30 days. As we age, this cell turn over process slows down, contributing to dull sallow looking skin, fine lines, wrinkles, blackheads, congestion, and course textured skin. Monthly facials assist your body in doing more efficiently what it is "supposed" to do on its own.
Slight redness is normal after a facial, esspecially if you've recieved any sort of chemcial exfoliant such as a Glycolic or a Alpha Hydroxy Acid, or received a large amount of extractions. Slight irritation may be experienced during these instances, however it should not continue after your facial treatment has been completed. Certain skin types, including those who tend to be more sensitive, may be prone to experiencing more redness post treatment.
Please review our menu of Image Facials & Peels for a full description of all the facial and specialized add-on treatments available. Still not sure? By filling our questionnaire prior to your treatment, the most beneficial facial can be chosen and customized specifically for you and your particular skincare needs.
A series of facials is the best way to jumpstart your skincare maintenance, especially if you're looking for positive results, fast! Facial series are generally offered in a series of six, performed once a week for six weeks, and are most effective when performed using a chemical exfoliant such as a glycolic or a lactic acid. (The exfoliant used will be determined based on your skincare history.) Payment is paid in full after the first treatment of the series. Please see my menu for more pricing information.
Absolutely! Facials are very beneficial for men too, and can help reduce skin sensitivity from shaving as well as other concerns from lack of proper home skincare. If you do suffer from sensitivity after shaving, it is recommended that you do not shave immediately before your facial, as this can lead to further irritation.
