Vitamin C Blast Facial Treatment
Turn back time with this rejuvenating, brightening facial treatment that will leave your skin with a vibrant, healthy, youthful glow. Tackling major signs of aging (reducing lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation; increasing skin firmness; boosting collagen and elastin production; and brightening / evening skin tone) in this luxurious 75 minute treatment with 1,500 mg of pure, fresh, stabilized Vitamin C powder absorbed into your skin. Includes hydra blast, LED, shoulder massage, neck and hand treatment.
Makeup Removal + Skin Assessment
We start our Vitamin C Blast facial by removing any trace of makeup. We introduce steam to help to soften our Blood Orange Cleansing Balm, then massage it into the skin for three minutes for skin pampering and a thorough meltdown of any make up, dirt, and debris. After we’ve removed the balm with a hot towel, we’ll perform a skin analysis to learn what skin type you have. We’ll assess any present skin conditions, and recommend a home skin care routine suitable for your specific skin care needs.
Next we cleanse with our Fermented Rice Water Cleanser, which helps to brighten the skin. We perform a luxurious cleansing routine that is much, much more than you’d normally do at home. This deep cleansing includes elements of facial massage and lymphatic drainage, finished with another hot towel to wipe away the cleanser.
Perhaps the most exciting element of our curated 100% PURE Vitamin C Blast facial is our Hydra Blast facial procedure. Often used in Korean skin spas, Hydra Blast is similar to microdermabrasion. But instead of leaving skin sensitive and dry, this facial routine saturates your skin with hydration by pushing our organic green tea and hyaluronic acid solution into the skin, while at the same time vacuuming impurities, dead skin cells, blackheads, and debris from pores. It will leave your skin refreshed, glowing, and exfoliated.
Vitamin C Mask
The next step in our process is the vitamin C mask. This mask is composed of 1,500 mg of fresh, pure, stabilized vitamin C. This helps to increase collagen and elastin production, as well as brighten and even the skin tone. While the mask is on, our estheticians perform a soothing massage on your shoulders and decollete. Before removing the vitamin C mask, we steam the skin and massage the product into your skin for 3 minutes. Steaming helps to liquify the vitamin C and facilitate absorption.
Next we’ll perform a 15 minute LED treatment on your skin. LED light colors can be specifically selected for your skin type:
Blue: produces an oxygen that kills acne causing bacteria, calms irritated skin, reduces inflammation, and helps to control sebaceous glands
Red: helps to target cells beneath the skin, encouraging them to boost collagen. It also helps to kill bacteria, increase circulation, and can heal acne scarring
Green: fades hyperpigmentation by reducing melanin producing cells, and calms the skin
Amber/Yellow: aids in reduction of redness, spider veins, and sensitive skin
With steam on, we perform a 10 minute facial massage with our Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm. Using steam helps to facilitate the skin absorption of butters in the balm. To finish this portion of the facial, the balm is thoroughly rinsed off using a hot towel.
In our Vitamin C Blast facial, our estheticians use our Fermented Rice Water Toner. This toner quenches skin cells with hydration, while brightening the skin with ingredients like sake, mulberry, and bearberry. The sake in this toner contains enzymes that help to gently exfoliate the skin.
Serum + Oil
Following the toner, we apply our Fermented Rice Water Serum. It contains many similar key ingredients to the toner, but is able to penetrate deeper for prolonged absorption. To help lock in vitamins and nutrients already added to skin, the esthetician will pat a small amount of Argan Oil onto face.
At the end of the facial there are some options of which products to use, depending on if it’s day or night. For a daytime moisturizer, we can apply our Green Tea EGCG Protective Cream, which fights off environmental stressors and offers protection against premature signs of aging from the sun. Alternatively, in the evening we can apply our Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Ultra Riché PM Treatment: one of our richest, most skin nourishing creams.
Eye cream options start with our famous Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream, which can immediately help to reduce dark circles, puffiness, and dry skin around the eye area. For evening treatments, opt for our Retinol PM Eye Cream to help with dark circles and fine lines, since its resident retinol content can help speed up skin cell turnover.
After any facial, it’s important to remember sun protection. We always offer our SPF Tomato Lycopene SPF 20, and advise clients to stay out of the sun. Since retinol and vitamin c are used during the facial and can cause sun sensitivity, we recommend large hats, sunglasses, and staying in the shade. If a client receives the facial in the evening, they may want to forgo the SPF, since they may not want to wash their face again before bed.
A facial treatment at one of our professional Facial Rooms is a purely luxurious experience. You’ll also get the chance to test and feel new products, to see how you like them. Our facial menus consist of a variety of different treatments, for all different skin types and preferences. If you’re looking to address a specific skin type or condition, we can also do custom facials. Getting a monthly facial is a great way to maintain your skin health, address skin concerns, and ensure that the products you’re using are what's best for your skin!
