» Collagen facial: Collagen is a natural protein which has the ability to get absorbed and hold moisture in skin. This vital protein makes 70 percent of the skin but is lost as we age, thus causing wrinkles. A Collagen facial replenishes this important protein to provide texture and resilience to skin.

» Sensiglow facial: This type of facial is recommended for sensitive skin, the reason being the cream used for the facial does not include granules that harm the epidermis, as a regular exfoliator used for other facials ruptures the epidermis and visibly harms those with sensitive skin.
