Would you rather have an Aqua Facial or European Facial_

So many choices, so little time.

In addition to many skincare treatments offered by me at Skin Care with Dory, I offer my clients cutting edge anti-aging procedures including the European Facial and Aqua Facial procedures. Both treatments have their unique benefit on improving your appearance and taking care of the health of your skin. With so many facial treatments available, how do you choose the best options for your individual needs?

The Aqua Facial – The Total Facial System

Look refreshed and revitalized in express time!

The Aqua Facial reminds many of getting a “power wash” for your face that rejuvenates even the dullest complexions. The three-step process rebuilds collagen, and reduces fine lines, wrinkles and removes dead skin and infuses the highest therapeutic products into the layers of the skin with glowing results. It imparts healthy-looking skin that is smooth to the touch and appearance that is well- nourished and visible brightened complexion. There is no downtime and takes about 30 minutes to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. This treatment is praised by many who are in need of a quick rejuvenation and have time constraints. The Aqua Facial does not offer massage in the procedure.

With our Aqua Facial system, I am able to customize your infusion therapeutic products to your unique skin combination and needs. The process is a three-step hydration treatment that is the foundation for healthy skin and designed for all skin types.

  • Lactic/Glycolic acid solution is applied for exfoliation and deeply cleans the skin and breaks up dirt and areas of accumulated proteins (keratin) as well as removing toxic buildup.
  • A salicylic/glycolic acid formula cleans the deeper layers and helps clear clogged pores, blemishes, and blackheads and carries away embedded dirt debris and sebum.
  • Your skin is now prepared for deep penetration of peptides. This final step has an application of three luxurious serums that enrich the full treatment and includes hyaluronic acid/peptide infusion to deeply hydrate and improve fine lines in the complexion.

The European Facial

Besides being highly beneficial for the health of your skin, this facial is the ultimate in pampering yourself (with purpose).

The European Facial is the ultimate in pampering yourself with a blend of relaxing massage that will soothe your body from the most stressful day while providing optimal nourishment for your skin. The European Facial is considered the “Go-To” treatment to Get your Glow Back.

If this is the first time you have had a facial, I recommend the European Facial as it gives us time to get to know your skin, what it needs to replenish, and for us to build a relationship for your on-going skincare needs.  After your skin is analyzed we begin the facial treatment. This facial is the ultimate in pampering yourself.

Skin Care with Dory European facial includes:

  • Consultation to analyze the condition of your complexion
  • Two deep cleansings including an enzyme to slough off dead skin and prepare the skin
  • Light extractions, as needed
  • Lymphatic massage to help the skin and stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Victoria DeAnn customized pure peptide serum are ultra-sonically applied
  • The Viktoria DeAnn technology advanced Pepti-Nano mask is applied to the clean face helps increase hydration 72% and plump the skin. The mask contains micro fibers that act like small fingers to re-hydrate and give the skin a foundation for the serum peptides to penetrate deeply. While luxuriating you will a enjoy hand, shoulder, neck massage with essential oils that continue to promote relaxation.
  • The last step is the application of a potent Vitamin C serum moisturizer and SPF for protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

The first European facial including the consultation is 90 minutes. Thereafter, plan 65 minutes for the treatment. A short-term and long-term exclusive treatment plan is developed during this appointment.

Added procedures to both the European Facial and Aqua facial are available upon request and may include:

  • Dermaplaning (see our blog on the topic) to the Aqua Facial for additional exfoliation and removing vellus hair on the face.  This gives a smooth platform for the additional serums to penetrate.  Add 30 minutes to the Aqua Facial procedure.

Lift-off with Dermaplaning for a smooth landing

Unique complexion challenges are complicated by the daily assault of environmental toxins and daily life stress.  With the natural buildup of dead skins cells and peach fuzz on the surface of the face, our complexion can appear dull and flaky. Dermaplaning is a critical first step exfoliating process in facial care.

Clients who routinely receive dermaplane treatments have commented that their complexion feels soft and has a “baby skin” glowing quality.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a 30 minute treatment that removes facial vellus hair (peach fuzz) and exfoliates the skin more effectively than a microdermabrasion treatment while revealing a brighter complexion with immediate noticeable results.

The painless technique is safe in the hands of a skilled and trained aesthetician who uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the surface layers of the skin that include the peach fuzz and coarse superficial epidermis. The skin is not penetrated while excess dead skin layers are removed to reveal the soft and luxurious and healthy skin surface. If makeup is applied, you will notice a smoother application post treatment. Please wait a minimum of 90 minutes after treatment before applying cosmetics to ensure a healthy glow.

Benefits for flawless skin

  • removal of excess/unwanted fine facial hair
  • exfoliation of dead skin cells
  • improvement of skin texture
  • minimization of superficial scarring
  • safe and effective for those who cannot have chemical peels (sensitive skin, pregnant or lactating women)
  • quick and painless
  • no downtime!

Dermaplaning is excellent for all skin types and help diminish sun damage, fine lines, very dry and/or dull skin. Clients with inflamed acne should not attempt this procedure. Exfoliation with Dermaplaning does not make the peach fuzz grow back darker. There is no downtime with this procedure.

As products penetrate more readily into the deeper layers of the skin surface post exfoliation, consider adding a pepti-nano mask to your Dermaplaning treatment to increase moisture and hydration to your complexion. Dermaplaning is also a pre-procedure that enhances the results of microcurrent or other facials.

Always wear sunscreen – we want your skin to radiate your beauty

Your skin will be very susceptible to damage by sun exposure post-procedure. You will need to be very diligent wearing sunscreen to protect the effects of this or any other aesthetic procedure.  Jan Marini Physical Tinted SPF is an elegant and light weight solution for daily use and will help your skin maintain its suppleness and glow.
