Facials are the foundation of healthy skin. These treatments remove dead skin cells, erase fine lines and soften age spots – resulting in a healthy glow.To top it all off, facials are a fun and energizing way to spend a little time on yourself.

What Is a Facial Treatment?

Facial treatments vary tremendously – ranging from at-home application of a face mask while lounging in your bathtub, to the Vivid Signature Facial which includes a double cleanse, exfoliation, facial massage, serum application, and hydrator – all of which is topped off with a sun-protective SPF treatment.

The Benefits of a Facial Treatment

Ultimately, the goal of a facial is to remove dead cells and then nourish the deep layers of living skin cells. The result is healthier skin – and healthy skin is beautiful skin.

  • Customized Care: All Vivid treatments can be tailored to your individual skin type, and can be customized to address issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, or wrinkles.
  • Deep Cleansing: Your Vivid facial treatments thoroughly cleanse the skin, removing impurities, oils, and toxins
  • Hair Removal: Facials with dermaplane treatment remove the fine vellus hairs (sometimes called peach fuzz) resulting in smoother, softer skin.
  • Exfoliation: Your facial treatment gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath.
  • Hydration: After removing the layer of dead skin cells, powerful moisturizers are able to reach deeply into your skin, leaving it hydrated and plump.
  • Increased Circulation: Massaging techniques used during facials improve blood circulation, giving your skin a radiant glow.
  • Fight Against Aging: Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while keeping your skin young and healthy looking.
  • Improved Skin Tone & Texture: Regular treatments help balance skin tone and refine texture, giving you a natural, even complexion.
  • Fun: Getting a facial is a pampered experience and when it’s done in an environment with great music and fun companions you’ll always leave smiling!
  • Professional Advice: Get guidance on skincare routines and recommended products which will work with your skin type to maintain your results at home.
