Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get a facial?

It's best to get a facial every 6 to 8 weeks. Our skin sheds every 21 days. It's a good idea to have a professional grade exfoliation, deep pore cleansing and hydrating mask, as a maintenance for a healthy looking skin. 

I'm going on vacation soon. Should I have a facial before or after?
The best time to get a facial depends on the type of facial you're getting, and we have facials that are ideal for both before and after a vacation. The GM Collins Hydrolifting Facial cleanses, hydrates, revitalizes, and firms the skin, and is perfect for before special events such as vacations. After a vacation, your skin will be dry from sun exposure and flying, so a hydrating facial like the GM Collins Algo Mask will help get your skin looking refreshed and hydrated.

Why do I need  to use a toner? I already clean my skin and use a moisturizer.
Toner is a very important part of cleansing. Dirt and pollution can be left on your skin even after cleansing. A toner will remove any residue and balance you skin's pH levels to get it clean and ready for a serum and moisturizer!

I'm interested in having a laser hair removal but I'm going away soon. When can I have it done?
It's safe to have laser hair removal performed 10 days before sun exposure or 10 days after.

I'm getting lines and wrinkles around my mouth and eye contour. Is there anything I can do to slow down the process?
Absolutely. We have a few different treatments for diminishing lines,  wrinkles and overall appearance of your skin, including Collagen facials, rejuvenation treatments, and Green Peel®. After a complimentary skin consultation we can choose a treatment more suitable specifically to your skin condition.

I have a few very stubborn hairs growing on my chin. What can I do to permanently stop the growth?
Laser hair removal can effectively stop hair growth virtually anywhere on your body. However, for just a few pesky hairs, electrolysis is often just as effective.
