I wouldn’t recommend a bikini or Brazilian wax on your period, as this skin is more sensitive and could make the process more uncomfortable. But if you don’t generally have sensitive skin or have not had an adverse reaction in the past, removing other body hair or facial hair should be okay.
Besides having facial hair, there are structural differences between men’s skin and women’s skin. Androgen (testosterone) stimulation causes an increase in skin thickness, which accounts for why a man’s skin is about 25% thicker than a woman’s. In addition to being thicker, a man’s skin texture is tougher.
We can customize all our facials to address all your skincare concerns.

Dermaplaning, also called “Blading”, is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a surgical blade to gently remove the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. In addition to this lovely treatment, it removes all the vellus hair. #Dermaplaning #facials #exfoliation #Aveda

Cholesterol deposits are fatty-looking, slightly raised plaques in the skin near the eyes. They usually appear gradually, are not painful, tender or itchy. They look fatty because that is what they are. They are collections of cells called histiocytes, bulging with fat (usually cholesterol). In some people this can be indicative of a raised level of harmful fats in the blood, such as high cholesterol.
White heads (milia) also known as milk spots or oil seeds, are very common, benign, keratin (protein)- filled cysts within the sweat glands that present as whitish, pearly bumps on the skin, usually across cheeks, nose, chin or gums, but milia can occur anywhere on the body.
The only way sure way to get rid of cholesterol deposits is to have them removed surgically.
Milia need to be extracted either by a physician or a licensed aesthetician.
While air pollution affects the outside of the body, it also is entering our bodies as we breathe. Drinking sufficient water every day hydrates the skin and helps the liver to process and remove toxic substances from the blood. Without plenty of water, our organs do not work as efficiently, and the results will show up in the skin.
