GLOSSARY OF FACIAL TECHNOLOGIES + TECHNIQUES
OXYGEN Fresh, cool oxygen is used to deliver E2 CBD serums into the skin. Specific serums are selected for your skin type to plump, hydrate, nourish and clear your skin while you breath in clean, pure oxygen.
HYDRAFACIAL HydraFacial cleanses, exfoliates and extracts using its patented vortex-fusion technology to painlessly remove impurities and encourage healthy skin renewal. The wand exerts a gentle amount of suction on the skin that loosens dead skin cells and pulls our congestion while simultaneously pushing hydrating and exfoliating cleansers, exfoliators and serums. Your skin will be assessed and products selected to address your specific skincare needs and goals.
ACUPUNCTURE Tiny, painlessly inserted needles are placed on the face to encourage healthy circulation and enliven the Qi of the skin. Needles are also placed along meridian points on the body to boost the quality of the blood, Qi and yin of the body, supporting vibrant skin, healthy muscle tone and to calm the nervous system. Acupuncture facials are a terrific way to treat the face while also benefiting from a total body “tune-up”.
LED Red, white and blue LED lights encourage healthy skin cell renewal and heal damaged or scarred skin while discouraging bacterial proliferation.
GUA SHA Gua Sha massage techniques help to exercise the muscles under the skin, release fascial adhesions and increase circulation to the entire head and face. When used with CBD serums and facial oils, may reduce the appearance of deeply set lines and wrinkles and allow the CBD to penetrate the skin more effectively.
MICRO-CURRENT Low-level current is applied to the facial muscles in a rhythmic and lifting pattern. This technology feels like physical therapy for the face and can improve circulation, muscle tone and nerve function and create a lifted look instantaneously. Repeated use will generate lasting effects.
FACIAL MASSAGE Relaxing to the muscles of the face, head and neck, massage will increase blood flow to the tissues and create a more serene visage
CUPPING Tiny silicone cups glide gently over the face to increase lymphatic drainage while also creating a slightly more lifted appearance in the skin. This is a terrific treatment to reduce puffiness and to improve facial muscle tone.
CBD SKINCARE BENEFITS
CBD has the ability to regulate systems that are out of balance and restore homeostasis. It is also packed with free-radical-fighting anti-oxidants and phyto-nutrients that provide age-defying nutrition to the skin and assisting with collagen cell renewal. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory and healing properties, it assists in repairing skin whose barrier function has been compromised by excessive sun exposure, long-term use of Retin-A and harsh peels, or scars from chronic acne. CBD is a safe and natural ingredient to calm red, irritated, itchy and sensitive skin or skin that tends to react strongly to products. CBD has been clinically shown to reduce over-active oil production without creating dryness and damaging the skin’s natural balance.
