Where is the Studio Located?
-My studio is home based, in Arlington, VA. Minutes away from the pentagon and off of columbia pike. There is street parking available just make sure the driveways arent blocked.
Do I need a Consultation?
-It’s highly suggested. A consultation allows me to get to know you & your skin, so your treatment can be customized to you. This time can be used to design a new skincare routine, to establish the root cause of your acne, or any number of things. Things like your medical history, lifestyle habits & current skincare routine will be discussed to understand your holistic self. (feel welcome to bring a list, photo or the actual products that you are currently using). The new client facial treatment “My Signature Facial” has enough time to us to talk over your concerns and what you are looking for regarding your skin care.
How do I book an appointment?
Simply look over the treatments offered. If you don't know what to get please contact me. New Clients the "My Signature Facial" is highly suggested. Returning clients, every treatment is available for you it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish on your visit and or overall skin health. Again, if any questions please contact me.
Do you treat men?
Yes, mean get facials and back facials. If your not a fan of tingling sensations and want a more relaxing yet effective facial treatment, Skin awakening has been a favorite for most male clients.
How do i get ready for a facial?
- When you are going to have a facial with me or any other esthetician is best to stop any harsh products on your skin 2-3 days prior your appointment. That includes any retin-A, retinoids prescribed or over the counter, acidic or granular exfoliants, if you arent sure please ask. Always stay hydrated prior and after a facial due to alot of stimulation. Try to arrive for any servie make up free, make up remover will be available for your use at the studio when needed (such as removing that water resistant mascara!) before getting your treatment done. Bring a hat or sunglasses when the sun is out and wear comfy clothes if possible.
MEN! please shave 2-3 days prior to or after your appointment if you normally shave.
What does your facial treatments mainly include?
- All facial treatments are customized with your skin type and skin health. Products used will always be explained throughout your treatment as a new client. Cleansing and exfoliating is part of all skin treatments offered as a massage method to increase circulation and stimulation. Extraction sessions depend on treatments, therefore for NEW CLIENTS i always suggest the “My Signature Facial” it contains enough time to really focus on your pores if needed, then other treatments can be followed since you skin is newly treated and deeply exfolaited. Other treatments include mild to light extractions giving me less than 10 mins for extractions. I love including soothing masks and LED therapy as part of the treatment to calm down any irritation and increase rejuvenation on every visit.
How do i get ready for a lash/brow service?
For lash & brow services please arrive MAKE UP FREE around the eyes. We will still properly cleansed the area but the less the better.
Lash services, please dont drink any caffeine (such as coffee, energy drinks.. ect) prior to your appointment. Your eyes will not stop moving around. Contacts must be removed before your appointment to avoid any type discomfort.
Can I receive a facial if …..
I have acne?
YES! I would love to help you get happy, healthy clear skin.
I have make up on?
Yes. Make up on the skin will be removed in the double cleansing process if you arrive with make up on. This being said, time removing make up could be spent treating the skin. Eye make up will likely not be fully removed & will need removal following your treatment.
I am pregnant?
Yes, as long as you are comfortable & are not high risk. Since every facial is customized, ingredients that are contraindicated for pregnancy can simply be avoided. LED therapy is NOT suggested for pregnant women since there is no report or research that its “safe” for the baby, but we will spend more time on implementing beneficial modalities to get the best out of you facial treatment.
I have an allergy to something you use?
Yes! Every facial is customized to you, so ingredients that you are allergic to or would not like to use, can simply be avoided. Please be as specific as possible on the NEW CLIENT INTAKE FORM found on every email confirmation when you book an appointment.
