Marilyn's Facials and Waxing - Pink Butterfly Graphic

Marilyn is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She won’t sell you unnecessary products or services. The top-of-the-line skincare techniques she uses has given me amazing results. I always fall alseep during the masking process due to the relaxing environment in her treatment room. Her location is a hidden gem, too, otherwise clients would be lined at her door waiting

Skin Care Treatments

Anti-Aging Signature Facial Treatment

In my anti-aging facial, I customize the treatment for your skin type by using a variety of potions to leave you with a cleaner, brighter, healthier complexion. Your skin is first cleansed, then gently physically exfoliated. Next, a refreshing papaya enzyme is applied under hot, steamy towels to further exfoliate and release congestion. If needed, a glycolic peel may be used afterwards to clarify and brighten. Necessary extractions will be made. Your skin is then treated to a relaxing massage, working to plump, hydrate and stimulate circulation. The hands, arms and feet are also massaged using hot stones to bring complete relaxation to the body. An appropriate masque is chosen to calm, heal and nurture the epidermis of your skin. Lastly, a moisturizer is applied leaving the skin feeling velvety smooth, followed by lip balm, and an eye cream.

  • Facial Treatment $90*
  • Facial Treatment with microdermabrasion $125*

Dermasweep Microdermabrasion Treatment

Gone are the days of the sandblast replaced by particle free technology that delivers a safer, painless and highly effective exfoliation. Ideal for treating early age lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, acne, and improving overall skin health. You will see a noticeable skin improvement with fewer treatments and improved results even after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 10 days to 2 weeks apart. In most cases you can return to your normal activities, however, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure for at least a few days after the treatment.

The Glycolic Resurfacing Peel series

The resurfacing peel offers benefits for aged and photodamaged skin, acne and hyperpigmentation. This procedure especially appeals to those of you who want to measurably improve the appearance of your skin with a treatment that enables you to immediately apply makeup and continue with your usual activities. Glycolic Acid works by dissolving the glue-like substance between cells, and prevents cellular build up making it a superb resurfacing agent by substantially improving skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, creating skin clarity and translucency, lessening and resolving skin discolorations and generally enhancing overall skin smoothness and suppleness. Consistent dedicated use of an appropriate glycolic acid home care maintenance system is critical in order to reach and maintain progress. The purpose of a resurfacing peel is to gain the desired result more rapidly in combination with a home care system.

  • Series of 6 weekly ½ hour treatments with the 6th one free $360*

Progressive ProPeel

The progressive Pro Peel dramatically improves the appearance of fine lines, acne and blotchy pigmentation. The results last longer than a glycolic resurfacing peel. The skin will look slightly pink, but look healthy, and there will be little down time. The skin will peel lightly on some and heavier on others, and will usually take 5-10 days, depending upon the skins condition. Recommended in a series of 3 about 4 weeks apart to realize best results, or 4 times a year as a booster to your skincare program.

  • $200, or series of 3 $575*
