Healthy skin begins with clean skin!
Even the best skincare products aren't as effective if your skin's pores are clogged. Hygienic extraction is necessary to minimize congestion which can lead to pimple formation. A professional extraction leaves the skin less traumatized than self-extractions, which often result in scarring.
Why choose my signature deep cleansing facial?
Upon arrival, I will assess your skin and discuss your skincare regimen. I begin the facial with gentle cleansing and exfoliation while using steam to relax the pores. I then perform manual extractions, with a special tool or with my fingers (gloved and wrapped in a tissue) to remove the sebum -- a combination of dead skin cells, oil, and dirt that clogs the pores and hair follicles.
When I have completed the extractions, I will use serum and a customized mask to hydrate, nourish, and revive the skin. I conclude the facial with a face and neck massage to stimulate blood circulation and relax muscle tension. An eye treatment and a lip mask are included. Finally, I may offer suggestions to improve your skin care routine.
You will leave feeling relaxed with clean, glowing skin!
A Bit About Me
I began my skincare journey in 2006, training with a French-educated dermatologist and eventually performing facials in her clinic. After relocating to Washington, DC, in 2009 and obtaining my esthetician license, I worked at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa at the Willard Hotel and later joined Karma Beauty Lounge by Erwin Gomez. While at Karma, I was featured in Washingtonian magazine’s “Favorite Facials of 2013.”
