Two ways to work with us.

Two ways to work with us.

ON THE SURFACE!

You  want a nice facial regimen. Although we have had a reputation for nice spa facials since 2006, our identity has changed to a more holistic clinical approach.  This means we do not provide basic facials BUT we have one treatment that is ultimately bomb-tastic that will give you both relaxation and spectacular results! That is our Custom Epicurean treatment.  The Custom Epicurean is recommended for those suffering with rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dry, aging skin and/or light breakouts or blackheads. We do not recommend this treatment to anyone with inflamed, cystic acne.


Ellen will review our questionnaire and provide you with education on foods and habits that are contributing to problematic skin.

TRANSFORMATION BABY!

I want to transform my skin! Now you're talkin!  You must begin with a consultation with Ellen $175.  She is both a holistic nutrition consultant and a rock star skin care expert of 18 years.

She will have you complete a full questionnaire which will help her design a customized food and skin regimen to completely heal your skin.  Your full commitment to the plan will get you results. Half ass commitment, half ass results. You get it.

Understand that nothing happens overnight.  You wouldn't expect to lose 5 lbs from your first session with your personal trainer so have patience and you will begin to see the transformation over time.  You've been collecting and storing toxins all of your life and it takes time to release them. For some it can take a month or 2 and others it can take several months to years.  Stick to the program and you will get results.

In your consultation, Ellen will review your questionnaire and provide you with education on foods and habits that are contributing to problematic skin.  She will customize a few treatment options incorporating diet, lifestyle along with treatment and home care. During the time you are on the program we will track your progress.

MICRODERMABRASION $100

 30 minutes
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses an abrasive applicator to gently sand away and suction the epidermis of the skin. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.  Skin can be red for the first day and be flaky and dry from exfoliation for 3 to 5 days after the procedure. Though not always common there can be minor bruising caused from the intensity of the suction.

Includes ultrasonic cleanse,  AHA and BHA application to exfoliate and  dissolve surface oils, microdermabrasion procedure, nutrient serum and sunscreen application. Includes a travel size healing serum and sunscreen to take home!
*series of 3 = $270

HYDRADERMABRASION TREATMENT
$140

30 minutes
Hydradermabrasion is a gentler approach  to resurfacing the skin and uses specific abrasive tips to gently exfoliate the skin. First, the tips suction the skin in a gentle manner, removing the dead skin cells. Then, water is delivered to the skin with the attached nozzle, and triple action process is performed:

  1. Vacuum Suction.

  2. Peeling with abrasive tip.

  3. Hydration with incoming liquid.

The vacuum suction stimulates the lymph flow and increases blood circulation, stimulating oxygenated arterial blood to the treated area.

The difference between the hydradermabrasion treatment vs. Hydradermabrasion facial - The treatment involves exfoliation only.  The suction will cleanse out clogged pores and blackheads but does not perform full cystic extractions. We will cleanse the skin, perform hydradermabrasion, add an exfoliating topical solution and moisturizing/SPF treatment.  Comes with a cream to keep the skin hydrated post treatment!

*Package of 3 = $375

  3. Hydration with incoming liquid.

The vacuum suction stimulates the lymph flow and increases blood circulation, stimulating oxygenated arterial blood to the treated area.

The abrasive tips provide deep exfoliation, remove dead cells of the stratum corneum, stimulate lymphatic drainage, make skin glow, and provide deep and comfortable pore cleansing and dirt extraction.

Incoming liquid gently washes away peeled cells and hydrates the epidermis. Saline absorbs oil and sebum out of pores that provide deep pore cleansing.

The machine itself performs the extractions very efficiently and painlessly.  No painful squeezing. The healing serums are then infused into the skin with oxygen.
