What is Holistic Skincare?
In holistic skincare we dont focus on the skin alone but on the individuals wellness, from their mental state to lifestyle choices. Holistic skincare is a journey that I would love to be a part of.
What is the difference between a regular facial Vs. a holistic facial?
The conventional facial leans heavily on using skin treatments such as, chemical peels, micro needling, dermabrasion. These treatments are considered invasive because it changes the biological structure of the skin. In Holistic esthetics, beautiful skin is achieves without invasive techniques that have side effects. Here at Pura Piel studio, we offer advance facial treatments that are suggested to current clients to achieve their goals and or prepare for weddings, events or overall a "red carpet treatment"
Should I schedule a consultation?
The 90 min sessions are great for new clients but a consultation is highly suggested, specially if you are ready to commit to keeping your skin healthy throughout our journey. The consultation fee will go towards your products purchased, we will go over the intake form and will create a treatment plan, skincare regimen and we will go over some lifestyle changes, if needed.
Its my first time getting a facial, which service should I book?
