Hydroxy Acid Facial (40 mins)
Did you know that human skin produces about one million skin cells every 40 minutes! New cells are produced at the deepest layer of the skin and when they reach the uppermost layer of the skin they are dead. The old cells harden, lose moisture, and then detach from the skin. This process is called desquamation, and as we age, this process slows down and can cause skin dullness, follicle clogging and dryness. The Hydroxy Acid Facial uses Dermalogica exfoliants, which we infuse with botanicals and natural essences, to “unglue" dead cells and allow them to be shed. This helps to minimize the signs of skin aging and hyperpigmentation (age spots), by lifting dull, discolored cells that give skin a mottled appearance. Although acid can sound a little scary, theres nothing to worry about! In fact the Hydroxy Acids that we use are derived from natural products: Glycolic Acid from sugar cane, Lactic Acid from milk and Salicylic Acid from willow tree bark. All of the products used protect and nourish the skin and the treatment is completely tailored to your skin type, meaning it is even suitable for clients with sensitive skin. This is a great treatment for clients that like to feel and see the difference after a single treatment!
