Grace gave me one of the best facial experience I've ever had. She took the time to explain everything that she was doing and answered all of my questions patiently. The room was so clean and it smelled really nice. The facial and the massage were also really soothing. I felt so relaxed afterwards and walked away with a glowing skin!

Joshua is very professional, kind and definitely knows what he is doing. I felt welcome the minute I stepped into the spa. I went to him unsure of what facial I wanted. He was very knowledgable and knew what my skin would benefit from. I ended up getting the Beauty Rx — my skin has never looked better! I already scheduled my next appointment with him.

I'm getting what Brenda (aesthetician and owner of Aphrodite's Mirror) calls a series of lunchtime facelifts. I've had about 8 sessions and wow, can I see a difference! I'm a youthful 53 and am looking younger thanks to Brenda's treatment. I never realized that one reason we get wrinkles as we age is that we lose muscle tone in our facial muscles. That's what I've learned, among other things. Brenda is very knowledgeable. Also, she carries a terrific product line called Bioelements that's been great at calming down my rosacea. Highly recommended.

    Not only was my facial the best I've ever had, being in Lisbeth's healing hands created inner transformation as well. Her expertise in helping me with a home skin care routine (that is easy and works for me) has virtually stopped my breakouts! Beautiful space, knowledgeable loving care & great products. Loved everything about my Spa experience at St John Organics!

      I have been a client of Shelly's for several years. I look so forward to having a treatment at Conscious Skin and Body Care! In addition to the benefits of a facial to my skin I always feel pampered, nurtured and completely relaxed when Shelly is done. Shelly also carries a very fine line of skin care products. Schedule an appointment for yourself -- you will NOT be disappointed.

      Candis is honestly one of the best lash artists that I've gone to, she makes it so easy to really find out what would look best on you and makes you feel like she's really doing what she can to help you achieve your desired results! I would never go to anyone else after going to her. She's so friendly, but professional at the same time. I've recommended her to all of my friends and the ones that went through and made an appointment were not disappointed! I have also gone to her for facials and they were so rejuvenating and hydrating. I was sent home with things to help keep up with my skin and my lashes which was so nice! Her space is so clean and super cute! Lashes are a process and they are time consuming depending on what you are getting, but after it was all said and done I felt so relaxed and felt great! All and all I would recommend her to anyone and I left with zero complaints! She is 100% self brought up and it shows that she loves what she does.

      I've had many facials in my life, but Brenda is THE best. She's knowledgeable, kind, thorough, and very relaxing! She can tell you about any products she's using and why, or she can be quiet and let you float away while she gives you the best feet, arms, and shoulder massage you'll ever get with a facial. Her facial massage is to die for! I had the softest, most hydrated and plum skin after my facial. If you do not try her at least once (but hopefully more), you are doing a disservice to yourself!

      Putri is AMAZING. I was able to get an appointment the very next day through thumbtack and came to the appointment not knowing what to expect. She walked me through each step of the process in great depth and was so knowledgable about products and skin in general. I got tons of great advice about products (without feeling pressured to buy anything) and my skin feels amazing. Do yourself a service and come visit her- your skin will thank you!

        I met Mia getting an Aveda amazing facial. I've had plenty of them, and she completely listened to my needs & habits like no other. I now have radient skin as opossed to the opposite thanks to her professional advice and inspiration. Mia went out of her way on a holiday to drive to my residence as I was moving out of the area and on a strict time constraint. She is a patient perfectionist with a sunny and warm disposition. In two hours I had lushious fluffy lashes on 6/18. I have since been traveling and in & out of the ocean swimming. Only now 7/13 do I wish I had her by my side for a touch up. Highly reccommened.

          Sig Britt is exceptional at what she does - the signature facial I had was AMAZING. Her approach is lovely and gentle. She cares about giving your skin the best treatment possible and my skin is still glowing and the results are the real thing. Can't wait for the next facial.! Excellent skin care in Mill Valley, Sig is one of the best!

            About

            The aging process is inevitable but how we respond varies enormously. Some of us are graceful. Some of us kick and scream. Some of us are blissfully unaware. But most of us still like to look and feel our best along the way. With this in mind, I offer several skin care services in my cosy central Berkeley studio. Facials are customized to each individual client, eliminating the need for a long menu and expensive add-ons. Anti-aging, acne or maintenance all come under one price, so each facial will be customized for you that day. I also offer waxing services, because after all, who doesn't wish for smooth, stubble-free skin? And I offer massage therapy for all women. These services often compliment each other and can be combined. There will always be some massage as part of your facial.

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            What is a facial?

            A facial is a restorative cosmetic treatment for the skin on your face. Facials can be performed by a licensed cosmetician, esthetician, dermatologist or other qualified provider. Spas,  medi-spas and other skin care centers offer facials. Most offer different types of facials that address the most pressing skin care needs such aging, dryness, sagging, pigmentation, etc.

            The national average cost for a facial is $60-$80. More complex facials, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peel, will cost more, as will services provided by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. The products used can also affect the cost of your facial; high-end creams and serums will likely result in a higher cost. For most non-medical facials, the practitioner will perform a skin assessment, determining your skin type and learning about your lifestyle, diet and skin care concerns. Then the facialist will cleanse and exfoliate the skin, extract any blackheads and clear clogged pores, give a facial massage, apply a treatment mask and then apply moisturizers. Typically facials are relaxing and restorative, leaving your skin clear and dewy.

            Which facial is best?

            The wide variety of names, methods, techniques and technologies for facials can be confusing. The best facial for you depends on your skin care needs. If you’re aging and want to address wrinkles and sun spots, you may want a chemical peel, while for acne you may want a deep pore cleansing treatment. Consulting with a licensed esthetician, cosmetologist or dermatologist will help guide your choice. Skin care professionals specialize in assessing your skin and determining which course of treatment will help you achieve your goals. Here is a basic overview of the best facials for different outcomes:

            • Reduce wrinkles: A chemical peel can help stimulate skin cell turnover, creating a fresh new layer thanks to the salicylic or glycolic acids. It’s important to work with an experienced professional when getting a chemical peel so you choose the right level for your skin type.
            • Prevent acne: Enzyme facials or LED facials help battle acne breakouts.
            • Smooth skin tone: Microdermabrasion facials are done using a small tool that polishes off your dead skin cells to reveal a fresh layer of skin underneath.
            • Relax and rejuvenate: A traditional European facial often features warm steamed towels, a facial massage, deep skin cleansing and exfoliation, extractions (as desired), face masks, and applications of serums and moisturizers to leave your skin refreshed and you feeling great.

            What is included in a facial?

            There are many types of facials you can receive based on your skincare goals. Pricing for facials will vary based on the skin care provider you see and your geographic location. Facials provided in a medi-spa by a medical doctor or nurse, or at an upscale day spa, will typically have higher average prices, as will facials in more expensive parts of the country.

            • European facial: Typically lasts 60-90 minutes. Includes steaming (often with warmed towels), cleansing and examination of the skin, exfoliation, extraction of blackheads and clearing clogged pores, application of masks specific to the skin’s need (anti-aging, etc.), application of serums and moisturizers, and massage.
            • Microdermabrasion: 30-90 minutes. Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead skin on the surface level, revealing brighter skin underneath. The practitioner uses a small, motorized tool that polishes your skin with a diamond tip or stream of very fine crystals. Usually the treatment is preceded by a thorough cleansing. After the microdermabrasion, the practitioner cleans away any remaining dead skin, and then applies a hydrating mask or moisturizers.
            • Back facial: About 60 minutes. Includes a thorough cleansing, exfoliation, extraction of blackheads and clearing of clogged pores, an acne-fighting mask, and mini-massage to keep the skin on the back clear and acne-free.
            • Gentleman’s facial: 50-75 minutes. Treats areas that most affect men. Includes cleansing, assessment of skin type, exfoliation and extraction to address razor burn or ingrown facial hairs, a hydrating mask, and a facial massage followed with moisturizer.
            • Jessner’s peel: 30 minutes. This is a light chemical peel that removes the surface layer of the skin to create a smoother look and feel.
              • More powerful peels are also available, typically at a higher cost.

            What is the purpose of a facial mask?

            A facial mask is used for therapeutic cosmetic purposes. A facial mask can be applied at home or by professionals during a facial at a spa or medi-spa. There are many different types of facial masks, all with different ingredients and applications to help you achieve your skin care goals. The active ingredients can help guide your choice. If you want to reduce oil and clear your pores, a clay mask with bentonite or French green clay may suit your purposes. For deep hydration, a mask with a humectant like hyaluronic acid will keep skin dewy and fresh.

            There are many ways to apply facial masks. Always start by thoroughly washing your face before applying a mask. Pre-made sheet masks are draped loosely over your face to allow your skin to absorb the ingredients while you relax. The sheet mask can usually be removed within 15-30 minutes. Clay masks are applied wet by hand, carefully avoiding the eyes. After the clay works its extractive magic and dries, you wash it off to reveal clear skin underneath. Moisturizing masks that are applied by hand are often only wiped off, leaving a rich layer of moisturizer to continue to nourish the skin.

            What is a mini facial treatment?

            A mini facial treatment is an abbreviated version of a classic European facial treatment. Typically provided in 30 minutes, it’s short enough to complete during a lunch break but long enough to feel luxurious. Before any treatment begins, most providers will do an assessment of your skin to determine the appropriate products to use, such as anti-acne or anti-aging. During a mini facial treatment, the licensed esthetician or cosmetologist will prepare your face by gently wrapping it in warm, moist towels. The heat of the warm towels loosens the pores of your skin, readying it for cleansing and treatment. After steaming, the skin care provider will cleanse your skin, then apply an exfoliant, often a fruit enzyme exfoliant. Next, the provider will apply the appropriate serums and moisturizers for your skin type, and often give a small massage. Mini facial treatments are more cost-effective than traditional facials, which typically last 60-90 minutes. They’re the perfect splurge when you need an affordable pampering session.
