A facial can involve a variety of skin treatments, including but not limited to exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, or masks and can be combined with many of the other services we offer such as peels. Because they are often more gentle than other treatments, certain facials are a great option for individuals with sensitive skin, or who are undergoing medical treatment, such as chemotherapy patients. We can help you choose the best option for your skin!
At El Con Health and Wellness Center, we like to custom tailor our facials to each individual based on your skin type, your level of comfort, and other treatments you may do concurrently. Rest assured that our clinicians will help you improve the look and texture of your skin while you relax in our soothing, spa-like surroundings.
Benefits of facials can include:
- Helps relaxation
- Can add to and amplify the effects of other skin treatments
- Improves skin’s appearance
- Safe and gentle, even for those with sensitive skin

Fire and Ice Facial
Also known as the “Red Carpet Facial”, the Fire and Ice facial, created by iS Clinical, is a quick-acting resurfacing mask followed by a rejuvenating mask. This intensive clinical treatment is designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing, softening and encouraging cellular renewal. Excellent for all skin types and ages, this facial results in a complexion that is dramatically refined, with no downtime, peeling, or other negative side effects. As its nickname implies, this is a great facial to get before a special event to quickly rejuvenate your skin!
Active Acne Facial
If you suffer from acne breakouts or from acne scarring, know that you don’t need to live with the discomfort, embarrassment, or unsightly pockmarking caused by white and blackheads.
One of the easiest ways to help control sudden flare-ups, or to help kick start a new skincare regimen is to get a cleansing acne facial to help purify the skin, clear away oil and dirt, and open the pores. Depending on the severity of the flare-up and the type of acne you have – blackheads, whiteheads, or cysts – we will tailor a facial to your specific needs to help heal your skin and return it to a balanced state.
Often, we use facials in combination with other treatments to treat acne over the long term. There are several ways we can help you reduce or eliminate active acne breakouts and acne scarring, from topical medication, special peels, laser treatments, and even corticosteroid injections which speed healing of the lesion to just a few short days may be an option. At El Con Health and Wellness Center, we will help you determine which treatment – or combination of treatments – is best for your budget and skin type.
Sometimes lotion alone isn’t enough to keep your skin hydrated. If you have noticed that your skin looks dull, ashy, or lacks that ‘dewy’ look, if you are starting a new skincare routine, or if your skin has become dry looking despite sticking to a skin care schedule, you may need a hydrating facial to help return moisture and a youthful glow to your skin. Hydrating facials use several moisturizing agents as well as humectants, which hold water in the skin to help give your skin cells a boost, and give you a smooth, radiant complexion.
If you have noticed that your skin has lost some of its radiance, that you do not have a firm, supple texture to your cheeks, and if your skin has minor sun damage, an anti aging facial can help you look and feel younger and more refreshed. As we age, we lose collagen in our skin which can lead to laxity, wrinkles, lack of fullness, and to looking tired even when we are well-rested.
Our anti-aging facials use a number of cleansing techniques, enzyme masks, and moisturizing agents to return elasticity and firmness to your skin.
Our backs can be one of the most overlooked skin treatment areas, despite the fact that they share many of the same skin concerns as our faces, whether that be signs of sun damage, acne, or lack of tone. Therefore, this facial mimics many of the traditional techniques used while performing treatments for the face, and incorporates deep cleansing, extractions, and purifying masks. This is a particularly useful facial if you are planning to wear a low-backed dress to a special event, or if you are getting ready for bikini season!
By using natural and organic products made of mostly plant enzymes that help stimulate rejuvenation and a natural glow. This facial is custom tailored to your needs, based on your personal skin concerns, but contains all organic cleansers, moisturizers, and skin-firming and nutrifying botanicals. If you have chemically sensitive skin, or are concerned about exposure to harmful skin care products, this is the facial for you.
We also carry many skin care products that contain no parabens, propylene glycol, or sodium lauryl, and are composed of natural botanical ingredients.
Deep Cleaning Facial
Every day, our skin is exposed to the elements, to dirt, makeup, and toxins. Help your skin breathe again with our deep cleaning facial, which helps remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil, as well as environmental toxins from your face.
If you have enlarged pores, dry and flaky skin, or if you are just beginning a new skin care regimen, we can design a deep cleaning facial to help remove debris from your skin leaving the skin clean, smooth, refreshed and glowing.
Collagen Restorative Facial
Collagen is the basic building material of our skin. As we get older, it may start to lose elasticity and begin to lack a firm underlying structure. In order to help revitalize your skin, we offer a facial that includes a collagen mask. This high-intensity facial mask is infused with a variety of easily absorbed nourishing ingredients and collagen that help re-texture your skin, and help your body strengthen and build new collagen.
Phyto Stem Cell Facial
Our Phyto stem cell facial uses cutting edge antioxidant serum to improve firmness and reverse the signs of environmental damage.
Derived from a Nobel-prize-winning discovery that uses Swiss apple stem cells to reverse cellular damage, this facial uses natural growth factors to stimulate healthy skin growth. We combine the phyto stem cell treatment with a hydrating mask that plumps and rejuvenates the skin in just one treatment.
