Skin consultation, skin treatments, bespoke facials, yoga facials, body massage
The Facialist is all about inner healing and amplifying outer beauty. They use innovative skincare science with intensive relaxation techniques to renew the skin from the inside out. What sets them apart is their bespoke facial and yoga facial.
These facials are professionally curated and created to drive results, no matter what your skin type is. The yoga facial is an intensive facial massage designed to lift, tone, and firm the facial muscles. This facial will target sagging skin as well as under–eye bags, congestion, and dullness; all making your face muscles tighter and your skin feel more firm. It will, essentially, give you the appearance of a fast lift, without ever going under the knife.
All of this will also boost blood circulation and stimulate collagen production to restore skin. The Facialist has a talented team that knows exactly what to do in order to liven up your skin. They use a carefully curated mix of skincare products specially selected for your skin, based on skin analysis. They have skin therapies for all skin types and all skin conditions and a wonderfully holistic atmosphere.
