In preparation for all treatments, epidermis aficionados first examine complexions before cleansing skin with PCA skincare products. During therapeutic mask treatments, made with papaya, lemon, and pumpkin, the staff hydrates, clarifies, revitalizes, or retexturizes skin by applying masks for 2–10 minutes, depending on client sensitivity. Oxygenating trio treatments boost circulation and cellular respiration, speeding up the healing of minor blemishes. Microdermabrasions shower skin with a deluge of microcrystals that wash away dead cells, helping fade acne scars, signs of sun damage, and chalk-scrawled hopscotch courts from facescapes. Resurfacing peels more deeply exfoliate the epidermis with a customized serum based on the needs of each client's complexion, though the gentle treatments still require little to no downtime. Each of the offered services draws to a close with a moisturizing elixir.
Face It Spa
When owner Giovanni Finocchiaro picked up the phone at Face It Spa, he heard one of his clients sobbing. She had been preparing for a presentation at work, and in the process, her skin had broken out so badly that Finocchiaro recalls her lamenting, "I just can't do it. I have to see you." Finocchiaro, who once dreamed of being a counselor, told her to come in immediately. "When you help people look better on the outside, it really does make them feel better inward, too," he says. When his distraught client arrived, he tailored a peel for her sensitive skin that helped kill bacteria and calm inflammation. Within a few days, he says, "she couldn't believe … how [her complexion] was already turning around."
Inside his recently remodeled boutique, Finocchiaro caters to each of his clients in the same way. He offers them complimentary water or tea before leading them across dark hardwood floors to a candlelit treatment room. After cleansing their face, he uses a lighted magnifier to analyze their skin type, then employs PCA products and a wide arsenal of customizable facial treatments to help them reach specific beauty goals or the center of the Earth.
