Rosacea Relief Facial

Acne Calming Facial

A therapeutic facial designed for your skin's special needs.


Do you fear getting a facial because the products or the facial itself may exacerbate your symptoms. 


The medication abbreviation "Rx" in Latin mean "recipe".  Using my nursing background and knowledge of skin care, I have designed and created a facial "recipe" (Rx) for your skin's special needs.


Rosacea and acne share some overlap in causes, signs and symptoms.  Both appear to be on the increase.  Overall, rosacea skin tends to be more sensitive and more easily irritated then acne skin.  


These 50 minute relaxing and therapeutic facials are designed with gentle products specifically for your skin type.  Healing LED Red/Blue light therapy is also utilized.  

Red and blue LED therapy is FDA cleared and is technology discovered by NASA.  See below for indepth explanation of LED red and blue light therapy


Home care product samples will also be provided.
