It's my first time, what kind of facial does Meraki Beauty recommend for me?
When choosing our Customized European facial you can't go wrong! Using our professional Dermalogica skin care line we will determine your skin type and issues by performing the Face Mapping skin analysis. This revolutionary approach to skin analysis, developed by the International Dermal Institute exclusively for Dermalogica, gives the professional skin care therapist a comprehensive technique to analyze every aspect of your skin. Face Mapping skin analysis is performed by diving the face into 14 definitive zones and performing an inch by inch analysis of your facial texture, hydration levels, congestions, and other issues that are unique to each of the 14 facial zones. We perform this at every facial you book which allows for a personalized experience providing our clients the guarantee that each professional treatment and home-care prescription fully addresses your every concern.
Can pregnant women get facials?
There are a few persuasions that we can discuss before your treatment. In general, most facial procedures are safe in the hands of a professional esthetician. Many of our moms-to-be adore the Ultra Calming products which help to soothe and calm sensitive, reactive skin. Some contraindications for expecting moms are products with retinoids (retinol), detoxifying ingredients, essential oils, and high percentages of salicylic acid.
The use of electrical equipment is not recommended, which includes High Frequency and Laser. Microdermabrasion has mixed expert reviews, with most stating to use with caution. We would not use microdermabrasion over aggravated acne or dilated capillaries. Be mindful when using it on hyper-pigmented skin as causing more inflammation can make this condition worse.

I have dull and tired complection. Is there a facial for that?
How often should I get a facial for best results?
First, the client fills out a client intake form to make sure you are suitable for lash extensions. We will then discuss the best shape, length, and thickness for your face type.
During the lashing procedure, the client lays comfortably on a spa table while listening to soothing music. Moisturizing eye pads are placed to isolate your top lashes from your bottom ones and your eyes will remain closed for the remainder of the service. The technician will throughly cleanse and prep your lashes for lash extensions with appropriate product. Then, one by one your lashes are isolated and lashed according to the discussed shape, length, and volume. Lastly, we'll set your lash bond and give you parting words of wisdom for further care.
What should I know before arriving for a skin care service?
Come in about 15 minutes over to fill out or update your information and to discuss your skin issues, questions, and treatment. Drink lots of water before your facial as the lymph stimulation will release toxins through your system and it will help flush those out of your body making you feel energetic and radiant. Vigorous exfoliating services such as microdermabrasion or enzyme peels will require you to stay out of the sun for a period of time, so schedule with care. If it turns out that you have a contraindication to a serivce at the time of your arrival, services may have to be rescheduled for a safer procedure.
How should I prepare for a facial treatment?
Make sure you avoid direct/prolonged sun exposure. Avoid any wax services at least 24-48 hours before and after skin care services. Drink plenty of water and be ready to be pampered. You can leave your makeup on or take it off.
What are the benefits of the package facial?
If you love the service why pay full price? When you prepay for our skin package you will save 20% off of our menu price.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment. Microdermabrasion can also improve: Oily or dull skin. Read more . . .
What is an Enzyme Peel?
These treatments can speed up natural chemical reactions in the skin that renew skin cells while exfoliating dead cells. Enzymes are also reported to diminish scars, age spots, fine lines, and discoloration, and may also penetrate the skin to cleanse pores and improve skin tone and texture.
