Hot, then Cold

Like the name suggests, the Fire and Ice Facial starts by warming the skin to exfoliate it, then cooling it to soothe and moisturize.   First, a resurfacing masque is used to make your face silky smooth and youthful. Made with things like retinol, niacin, and botanical acids, this masque creates that warm, tingling sensation for the "fire" part of your facial.

Next is the rejuvenating masque, full of soothing ingredients like green tea and aloe vera to deeply moisturize while also decreasing inflammation and soothing irritation.  This cools the skin for the "ice" finale to your treatment.

And just like that, after about a half an hour, you're left with radiant skin that looks younger and healthier than ever! 


No Downtime

One of the best parts of the Fire and Ice facial (besides the instant amazing results) is that there's no downtime associated with it. That means to peeling, no shedding, no prolonged redness or inflammation. Your face might look a bit red immediately after your treatment, but this will go away within a few hours. 


What Should I Know?

Like most beauty treatments, it's important to prepare properly to get the most out of your facial. Discontinue use of products that have vitamin A or glycolic in them at least 3 days before your treatment. Don't wax or laser your face for at least 2 days before you come in. And some medications don't interact well with the treatment, so make sure you tell Sarah about everything you're taking, prescribed or otherwise.
