All About Add-Ons

Hello beautiful babes! I am thrilled to share this post because now that we are finally open again, you can actually come in and use the add-ons that I will be sharing today! Here at Oasis, we have five targeted treatment facials meant for you specific skin type, but did you also know that we offer additional services to give your facial some extra sparkle? For just ten extra dollars, you can add one or more of the following services - dermaplane, LED mask, Cannuka products, jelly mask, extractions, face lift massage or a chemical peel. You can combine one or more of these to your facial to create a more customized experience.


Dermaplane


You've probably seen videos of this one before or at least have heard someone raving about it (it totally lives up to the hype). When we dermaplane, we use a scalpel to gently scrape the skin, freeing it from about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin build up and the vellus hair (peach fuzz). Here are the benefits:

  • Once the dead skin and peach fuzz is removed, it leaves a perfectly blank canvas for your products to penetrate deeper into your skin, rendering them more effective.

  • If you're a makeup wearer, you will love the way your foundation will sit on your skin. It creates a dewy, airbrushed makeup look.

  • Removes all of the facial hair that can trap dirt and oils.

  • Skin will look and feel smoother, softer and brighter

  • Instant results with no downtime

  • 100% painless

Because it is completely painless, it is a great option for those of you who prefer to have a hairless face, but waxing is too painful or maybe you're even allergic to wax. This add-on is recommended to be done every 3-4 weeks, but if you want to try it once and decide to not continue, you don't have to worry about your vellus hair coming back thicker and darker. Because of the type of hair it is, it will grow back the exact same size and color as it was before. Bonus: it is suitable for all skin types!


Aftercare instructions:

  1. Make sure to wear SPF, as your fresh skin will need to be protected of damage caused by the sun's rays.

  2. Hold off on exfoliating at home for the next week.

Dermaplane is included in our Smooth facial, but add it on to any facial to give your skin that extra fresh and dewy look.


Extractions


We all get breakouts and-if we're being honest-most of us get satisfaction out of popping them ourselves. But, do yourself a favor and let your esthetician do it for you because we have been trained how to do it correctly without causing a scar. Sometimes if we try to pop our own zits, we end up squeezing too hard and before it's ready. Extracting incorrectly usually makes it worse and it can leave an angry red scar. Remember, a pimple is much easier to get rid of than an acne scar.


When we perform extractions on our clients, we will either use our gloved fingers or a tool designed for extractions. We also use a magnifying light so we will be able to see blemishes that you may not have noticed before. During extractions, we gently dislodge the buildup inside of the pore caused by oil and dirt; by clearing out the pores, it gives us a clean canvas to work with, allowing products to be more effective. If you have never had extractions done before, it is a good idea to book your facial at the end of the day or when you don't have to go anywhere after, as extractions can sometimes leave your face a little red or swollen in areas depending on your skin type and how many extractions you need done.


Extractions are included in our Clear facial, but it is a great add-on to try with other facials, especially if you are someone who is wearing a mask for most of the day.
