You'll also be offering the HydraFacial?What does that consist of? KG: The HydraFacial is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or down time. This resurfacing treatment—combined with LED light therapy—immediately reduces the look of lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, hyper-pigmentation, and congested pores. Treatments are available in 30, 60, or 90-minute increments.
Why did you chose this particular facial as an offering?
KG: The HydraFacial is one of the most effective and advanced treatments in the skincare market. It is also exclusive to our spa in Philly.
What will clients experience during and after the facial?
KG: The treatment is very soothing and relaxing and will leave our guests with rejuvenated, renewed, and rehydrated skin. The results are amazing!
