The Classic Facial starts with pre-cleanse and cleansing to remove makeup and impurities. This is followed by an exfoliation process that removes dead skin cells and generates skin cell turnover. Next, the pores are deeply cleaned with steam that is gently blown over the face. An extraction process for a deeper cleaning is the next step Extractions are always followed with disinfection and then a soothing and antiseptic ampoule is generally applied. To further the client’s relaxation, a face, neck, and shoulder massage comes next. After the massage, a mask is applied appropriate to the skin type and condition, and finally, a moisturizer with sunblock is applied. The European facial will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to greet the world with a healthy, glowing complexion
The Technika Facial starts with a classic facial and then utilizes suction assisted bipolar radio frequency to tone and tighten the skin and facial deep tissues. This advanced radiofrequency technology delivers energy safely and painlessly to the underlying layers of the skin, gently stimulating the production of new collagen, while protecting the outer layer of the skin. The new collagen that is formed plumps and smooths the skin making it appear more youthful and radiant. The Technika Facial also selects skin condition specific serums to help correct any skin flaws present and nourish and detoxify the skin.
Fire and Ice Facial
The Fire and Ice Facial starts where the Tecknika Facial leaves off and then adds cryotherapy to the facial treatment. Cryotherapy with a cryochiller utilizes cold air which activates an increased production of collagen in deeper layers of the skin causing the skin to become smoother and more even toned with regained elasticity and improved overall condition and appearance. Skin vessel constriction followed by vasodilatation allows toxins and other stored deposits to be flushed out of the layers of the skin and circulation is improved after several treatments.
Deep Cleansing Facial
The deep cleansing facial is very suitable for acne or oily complexions. Pre-cleanse is accomplished with salicylic and glycolic pre cleanse pads. Ultrasonic cleansing is then done to deeply clean pores and to reduce oils as well. Extractions are followed by the application of acne reducing masks and acne specific serums containing salicylic and glycolic acids.
MyBody Probiotic Youthboost Facial
The Probiotic facial utilizes an innovative new treatment from MyBody skincare. The treatment is tailored for anti-aging in mature skin and also sensitive and acne prone complexions. After your Classic Facial the appropriate skin treatment is applied The Prep Pen contains Lauric Acid, derived from coconut oil, to help skin retain moisture and softness, Bearberry Leaf Extract for an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect, Facial Rejuvenation Licorice Root Extract to prevent melanin production, and Vitamin C Ester which is quickly absorbed by the body and more stable than other forms of Vitamin C. The Peel Pen with the myPROBIOTIC Skin Renewal Technology has 1, 3 Beta Glucan for stimulating the body’s immune system and helps skin appear revitalized. It contains (PDB) Probiotic derived Bio Actives as the main ingredient that’s driving into the skin; and the Lactic helps transport it.
Classic Microdermabrasion/Diamond Peel
Microdermabrasion is done three ways at Technika. However performed the treatments are skin resurfacing treatments that are mainly carried out to rejuvenate the skin and to remove visible blemishes caused by acne, scars or stretch marks. MicroDerm can also be utilized for wrinkles and aging skin. A series of treatments may be advised with a significant improvement in the complexion over time. The microdermabrasion procedure consists of exfoliating the upper surface of the skin know as the stratum corneum, by subjecting it to a mild blasting with minute crystal or sand particles. Baking soda particles can also be utilized. Particle free MicroDerm can be accomplished by scouring or polishing the surface with a diamond tip. Whether exfoliated with particles or diamond tip the outer skin layer is eroded away and new skin then grows into its place. All skin except very thin skin can be treated by MicroDerm. The treatments are very mild and relatively painless. It is not necessary to use any kind of anesthetic and patients may experience a slight windburn feeling and some redness but usually no other discomfort.
The newest innovation in MicroDermabrasion is known as Hydro-dermabrasion also know as Wet/Dry MicroDermabrasion. Hydrodermabrasion combines crystal free Microdermabrasion vacuum technology plus strategic products to provide a gently and effective exfoliation that leaves skin visible soft, radiant, and glowing. Gentle vacuum pressure lifts the skin to the abrasion head providing an effective yet gentle exfoliation that causes less damage that tyical Microdermabrasion devices. This makes it an ideal treatment for dry sensitive or mature skin types. Wet/dry microdermabrasion is perfect for all skin types and is specifically designed for dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, mild to moderate acne, skin smoothing and hyperpigmentation. Hydromicroderm can be combined with Radiofrequency treatment or jet serum infusions. (see below).
Dermaplaning is similar to particle free microdermabrasion in that it accomplishes a mechanical exfoliation of stratum corneum. Dermaplaning does not use crystals suction or abrasive surfaces but rather uses a stainless steel blade similar to a razor blade. The sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face leaving a very smooth surface. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products or spa products to be more effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, evening skin tones and treating clogged pores. Dermaplaning can be effective for exfoliaton for patients with spider vessels, sensitive skin or allergies preventing the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Facial Chemical Peels
The purpose of a chemical peel is to erase imperfections and improve skin tone and texture by removing layers of damaged skin. Chemical peeling is often used to treat fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth. Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and hereditary factors can often br reduced or even eliminated with this procedure. Mild scarring and certain types of acne also can be treated with chemical peels. In addition pigmentation of the skin and skin that is dull in color and texture may be improved with chemical peeling.

Serum Jet Infusion
Serum Jet Infusion uses a pneumatic device to push high potency serums deeper into your skin than a normal skin treatment would accomplish. The Jet injector is able to penetrate the epidermis by 4 mm and to disperse the serum over 1 to 1.5 cm from the insertion site. Combining the jet serum infusion with Microdermabrasion can bring your skin to a new level of hydration, brightening and repair.
