Frances was AMAZING! She knew exactly what I wanted and she was very professional. This was my first time hiring a makeup artist and she made me feel very comfortable. I loved how she made my eyes and my facial features stand out. Everyone that saw me absolutely loved my makeup, I had people giving me compliments all night. I will definitely hire Frances again for my next event :)

    I received a gift certificate for a Lori Faith facial from my friend Claudia. She's almost as picky as I am when it comes to aestheticians OMG I have never had a facial like this in my life- and I get facials once a month! Lori's approach is both healing and spiritual. The extractions were extraordinarily thorough as were the peels and the masks. The hand/arm and foot/leg massages were a bonus as well as relaxing. The whole aura of her room inspires relaxation and confidence. The minute her hands touch your face, you know you're in the hands of a true professional. But here's the best part: a week later, people are still commenting on how good my complexion looks! I'm 68 but my face looks 45! Can't argue with that!

    Your body isn't the only thing that can benefit from a workout. After a European facial workout and facial massage I have a glow that lasts for days and tighter muscles, especially in my jaw. After several weeks I began to see a difference. She also gave me exercises to do at home.

    I really can't say enough about EgoDerm and it lead esthetician, Sanaa. I wish Sanaa's attitude toward customer service and quality of service and care spreads to all business. Sanaa provided me with the most accurate skin analysis I have ever received, and was well informed about my skin condition and what i should do. I have been to many fancy and expensive facial spas and estheticians before, but i have never experienced the level of experience, knowledge, and service that Sanaa provides. Price was extremely reasonable and my skin look great after the treatment. Sanaa follow up with custom email detailing how i should take care of my skin. She never tried to force sell me any products, and gave me a lot of advices on my current home care products and make up. Give Sanaa a try, I am sure you will love her as much as I did. I feel i have found a diamond.

        My friend came to Shoshana with severe acne after going to many doctors and trying many medications for years with little to no results. My friend recommended I should try going to Shoshana. As a man it was kind of out of the box for me to see a beautician…in my mind a beautician is only for women and facials, but she assured me that many men go to Shoshana for acne and she has 30 years of experience. After a few acne treatment sessions my acne decreased tremendously. My skin felt like new! I was amazed with her knowledge of how to treat acne.I cant believe how great it feels going out without feeling embarrassed and ashamed because of acne. I`m very grateful...thank you Shoshana!

          I recommend very highly Nicha at Face2Face Studio for facial and skin care services. She knows what she doing, is very experienced, and takes the time to do things right. I have been a customer for about 3 years but just checked out her new studio location on Ventura in Woodland Hills; is it attractive and comfortable. While most of her clients seem to be women, I am guy and am glad I discovered how much better I look and feel about myself. Thank you Nicha. Keep up the outstanding work.

          About

          Desiredface is offering two different types of services to clients: European Facial Workout® and Pilates reformer. Both services will be provided in one-on-one, customized sessions designed specifically for the client. The services are by appointment only. Be the best version of you! European Facial Workout® is the new anti-aging trend in the US. It is an incredibly effective muscle resistance training method based on anatomy, physiology and kinesiology. Only isometric facial exercises can truly strengthen and increase muscles fibers in the face, which will smooth out sagging and aging skin by restoring the original length and tone of the facial muscles. Over time, as the muscles become stronger, the face regains its original young-looking contour. Some other benefits of facial exercises are improved blood circulation and stimulation of the lymph function. During our training sessions, clients not only learn how to activate facial muscles, they also receive the additional bonus of a face massage and a stimulation of more than 60 acupressure points of the face. The improvement of facial appearance is not about quick fixes and piling on expensive creams. It's about dedicating the time and cultivating a lifestyle around health and strength. The European Facial Workout® seeks to provide people with a truly satisfying experience that improves their daily lives with confidence. Home sessions are offered too. The Intelligent Workout: Pilates helps develop long, strong, muscles, improve posture, and increase flexibility. Our Pilates sessions are built around the following 8 principles: * concentration * centering * control * breathing * precision * stamina * flowing movements * relaxation These principles are the reason why my Pilates reformer program has worked so well for so many individuals. Many of my clients especially benefit from Pilates after an orthopedic surgery since it helps regain mobility in the joints and rebuild atrophied skeletal muscles. Moreover, my sessions place importance on specialized breathing techniques which help to oxygenate the body and thereby speed up the healing process after medical problems. No home sessions, this is offered only at the studio. Both of these services are aimed not just to tone the body and the face but also to increase self-confidence by helping people feel better about themselves.

During the treatment, facial acupuncturist Louis Woolf will also needle constitutional points on your legs, arms and body. These are the points that will help to balance and harmonize your inner elements. Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in 1996 showed that of 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment. Over the course of treatments, you can not only expect to be looking more radiant but you will also start to feel more at balance and happy in yourself. The Irish Times recently acclaimed this treatment as, "...a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery and the effects can run much deeper than simply improving appearances."

These may be things to do with exercise or lifestyle or maybe you would like to stop smoking or lose some weight. These are all things that we can achieve when we are in balance and feeling good about ourselves. Once you start to feel like this, you will be surprised how much your self image improves. This can be achieved by facial enhancement acupuncture bringing your natural beauty to the surface. * The benefits Acupuncture is a holistic therapy benefiting body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

          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 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.

          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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
