FaceToFace Spa at Avery Ranch’s medical aestheticians combat the effects of aging and harsh environments with tailored spa services and premium skincare products. In less than an hour, products from brands such as Dermalogica deliver a double-cleansing treatment that combines with skin-soothing steam, aroma therapy, and a deep-cleaning ultrasonic treatment, among other nourishing elements, to evoke the smoothness of a baby dipped in vegetable oil. In addition to skin treatments, a technician massages away stress on the neck, shoulders, scalp, arms, and hands. Facial upgrades include a hydration-infusing lip-renewal treatment that works to plump mouth borders and a firming and toning anti-aging eye treatment that provides all the awakening power of a coffee-spouting rooster.
For more focused facial treatments, diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments spritz visages with a noninvasive barrage of fine diamonds designed to exfoliate skin, increase its elasticity, and balance pigmentation. Alternatively, progressive chemical peels coat countenances in a combination of gently acidic exfoliants that peel away to reveal a complexion as smooth as the placid milk ponds in the Cookie Monster's dreams.
Face To Face Spa at Avery Ranch
As she relates in a 2011 profile in Miss A, Face To Face Spa's Jenny Abraham wrote herself a unique prescription in 2006: monthly facials, for the next five years. Abraham had suffered severe cystic acne since she was 15 years old, and the breakouts had crippled her self-esteem to the point where they seemed to even eclipse her accomplishments as a registered nurse. The regime restored her complexion's health, so she opened the spa in March 2011 to share her methods with her clients, just as kindergartners are taught to share their toys with others and their thoughts with Twitter.
Skin consultations are the jumping-off point for each treatment, which could take the shape of a topical therapy or an intervention with lasers or mechanical exfoliators. Nine peels, however, are the house specialty. Abraham mixes fruit enzymes or lactic acid to heal mild symptoms of rosacea and promote cellular regeneration, and she blends more aggressive chemical formulas to clear actinic keratosis and diminish signs of aging. For all the face and body treatments, the staff relies on professional targeted products, which have been engineered without animal testing and eschew irritants such as perfume and skunk stink. Massage therapists take a holistic approach to beauty by relieving stress, and cosmetologists attend to the finishing touches with Lavish Lashes extensions and Jane Iredale cosmetics.
