What is a Facial?  

At Thrive Wellness and Aesthetics, facials are customized for each patient’s specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals. Facials are both a relaxing spa experience and an intensive skin rejuvenation procedure. A customized combination of serums, cleansers, exfoliants, facial masks, and moisturizers will be combined for overall skin rejuvenation. Exfoliators like salicylic acid or glycolic acid strip away damaged or dead skin cells to reveal a new layer of healthy, bright skin. Cleansers, serums, and moisturizers often have anti-aging properties or other powerful ingredients to hydrate and nourish the skin. 

Extractions can also be performed to unclog pores and treat acne-prone skin. Extractions should always be done by a medical professional who has the right tools and techniques to prevent damage to the surrounding skin. 


“Overall, I would highly recommend Dana to anyone seeking a nurse injector. Her professionalism, knowledge, and compassionate care are truly exceptional, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.”

Who is a Candidate for Facials?  

Everyone is a candidate for a facial! This is a gentle skin treatment tailored to each patient’s specific skin type and skin conditions they wish to treat. Clogged pores can be extracted, dull skin tone brightened, and surface imperfections faded away with custom facial treatments. Other skin conditions that can be targeted with a facial include mild acne, dry skin, fine lines from repeated facial expressions, and more! Facials are great alternatives for patients who are not candidates for chemical peels or laser skin care treatments. 

Facial Treatment  

Each patient’s facial treatment will be a little different but, generally, patients can expect a thorough cleansing followed by options for extraction, exfoliation, and serum infusion. Lymphatic drainage (facial massage) to improve blood circulation, a chemical peel, and other treatments can be included as needed. 

Recovery From Facials  

There is no downtime or recovery after a relaxing facial treatment. Patients can expect to immediately see a more radiant skin tone, clearer skin, and a refreshed look. 

How Long Will Results Last After Facials?

The rejuvenating benefits of a facial can be built on over time with additional facial treatments and an at-home skincare routine. We offer medical-grade skin care products like ZO Skin Care with more potent ingredients to maintain skin health and a blemish-free, youthful complexion.
