$39 for Microdermabrasion and a Custom Facial (Up to $100 Value)
The approximately 60-minute facial treatment begins with a microdermabrasion treatment that buffs away dead skin and reveals fresh complexions underneath. Next, clients can choose any facial valued at $65 or less, including the vitamin-C anti-aging facial that uses vitamin C from oranges and dill to stimulate collagen and help minimize fine lines. The rebalance facial remedies oily, troublesome skin with deep cleansing and vegetal charcoal that absorbs impurities and fat that cause blemishes.
