Virginia Beach Facial FAQs

Which Virginia Beach location is the best to book my facial?

We recommend booking your Tailored To You Facial treatment at the location most convenient for you! Our oceanfront ViBe District and Shore Drive med spa locations both offer facial treatments in Virginia Beach.

How do I prepare for a facial?

It is recommended to avoid waxing, shaving or using any exfoliating products on the face for at least 24-48 hours prior to your facial. Also, avoid wearing heavy makeup and come with a clean face. If you've been swimming in a pool or at the Virginia Beach oceanfront, we recommend thoroughly cleaning your skin prior to receiving your facial. 

Should you talk during a facial?

It's your personal preference. Some clients prefer to relax and enjoy quite time during their facial, while others prefer to chat with our estheticians.

Should I get a massage or facial treatment first?

It depends on your personal preference and the time you have available. If you want to relax and destress, a massage may be a better choice, but if you're looking for specific skin benefits, a facial may be more appropriate. 

Should you wash your hair before a facial treatment?

It's not necessary to wash your hair before a facial, but tying it back or bringing a hair tie can be helpful to keep hair out of your face during the treatment.

What not to do after a facial treatment?

It's best to avoid using harsh products, wearing heavy makeup, or exposing your skin to direct sunlight immediately after a facial. Also, avoid hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

How long does it take to glow after a facial treatment?

Many people notice an immediate improvement in the look and feel of their skin after a facial, but it may take a day or two for the full results to become visible.

What to expect for your first facial treatment?

You can expect a consultation with your esthetician to determine your skin type and any specific concerns you may have. The facial itself will likely involve cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin using a variety of techniques and products.

Which facial treatment is best for beginners?

A basic facial or a custom facial that is tailored to your skin type and concerns is a good choice for beginners. We recommend a new customer consultation and one of our Tailored To You Facial treatment

Can you see results after one facial treatment?

Yes, you can see immediate results after one facial treatment in Virginia Beach, such as improved skin texture, hydration, and a brighter complexion. However, for long-term results, it is recommended to get facials at least once a month.

What does a one-hour facial treatment include?

A one hour facial typically includes cleansing, exfoliation, extractions (if needed), a mask, facial massage, and moisturizer. The exact steps and products used may vary depending on your skin type and concerns. 

What are the pros and cons of facial treatments?

The pros of getting a facial in Virginia Beach include improved skin texture, hydration, and a brighter complexion. The cons may include cost, time commitment, and the potential for skin irritation or reactions to products used during the treatment. 

What are 6 benefits of a facial treatment?

Some benefits of getting a facial include improved skin texture, hydration, reduced acne and acne scars, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increased circulation, and improved skin tone and elasticity.

How do you know if a facial treatment is good?

A good facial should leave your skin feeling clean, hydrated, and refreshed. A good facial treatment should also address any specific concerns you may have and be tailored to your skin type. You should feel comfortable and relaxed during the treatment and have clear communication with your esthetician.
