Refresh Holistic Rejuvenation Cupping & Gua Sha Facial (70 min, $90)
This Refresh facial takes an holistic approach to skincare by utilizing specialty tools and techniques stemming from Ayurveda Beauty and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Also known as a modern day facial lift or an alternative to more invasive treatments, this revitalizing facial is unlike any other facial in Sarasota, FL. After cleansing and gentle exfoliation, the session consists of a series of massage-based protocols aimed to harmonize the skin, aid in lymphatic drainage, and improve circulation. Therapies included in this facial are the Kansa Wand, Facial Cupping, and Facial Gua Sha. This facial helps to plump skin, soften fine lines, de-puff the eyes, contour the jawline, lift the cheekbones, and relax the neck and shoulders. Each therapy on its own could be a helpful addition when treating a specific concern such as aging, acne scarring, or melasma. Together and in the right hands, these therapies work in synergy, creating harmony in the skins health and appearance. Results will differ slightly from person-to-person, but one treatment can deliver a very noticeable difference in most cases. There is no “down time” involved in this holistic facial treatment.
For best results, a series of once a week for four consecutive weeks is recommended. After your fourth session, a monthly maintenance appointment is all that is needed to maintain results.

A key element to this session it about educating your teen on the importance of skin health and wellness. This is a chance to not only address any issues with the skin, but also learn what skin type they are and what care they might need. Guidance in choosing helpful products and/or makeup can be shared, giving them the confidence to make healthy choices in their everyday skincare maintenance. (If extra extractions are needed we can incorporate into their treatment, add 15 minutes.)

Microdermabrasion or extra extractions can be a helpful addition when treating a specific concern such as acne, scarring, or aging.

Including customized deep pore cleansing, exfoliation with steam, extractions, high frequency, a therapeutic and PH balancing facial mask, and scalp massage followed by nutritious toner, blemish fighting serums, eye cream and moisturizer.
The process of treating and healing acne is different for each individual. For anyone - It requires commitment.

Gentle enough to enjoy once a week or bi-weekly in rotation with a Refresh Signature Organic Facial to maintain results. The most important part of the process is regular maintenance, especially in the beginning of your journey to better skin! We will base future timing and an your regularity of treatments together in your personal consultation.
Gua Sha Facial: (45 min, $60)
The Gua Sha Facial includes deep pore cleansing with aromatherapy and steam, followed by Facial Gua Sha. Facial gua sha is a much more gentle version of the technique that is typically used on the body in Traditional Chinese Medicine. On the body, the aim is to break down tissue blockages and stagnation and release toxins. The way we are using this technique here on the face is extremely light in comparison. What we see as puffiness in the face is fluid retention, specifically lymphatic fluid. For optimal health of the skin, the immune system, and the entire body, we want lymph to be circulating freely. When lymph is draining and refreshing optimally, puffiness goes down. In addition, the proper circulation removes toxins from the skin, which helps to clarify the complexion, and rejuvenates skin cells for a healthy glow. This is designed to improve specific skin concerns, such as scarring, hyper-pigmented, hypo-pigmented skin or the markings of mature skin.
To receive full benefits for skin rejuvenation, lifting, sculpting, and lymphatic drainage this treatment can be received once a week for 4-6 weeks or in rotation with your regular Refresh Holistic Rejuvenation Facial. After a series, results can be maintained with monthly facial treatments.
Cupping Facial: (45 min, $60)
The Cupping Facial includes deep pore cleansing with aromatherapy and steam, followed by Facial Cupping. The techniques used during facial cupping help to reduce redness, move stagnant lymph, tighten slack skin and give wrinkles a softer appearance. We may actually discourage the formation of new lines through this medium. By exercising the cutaneous layer of the skin we combat poor circulation, dehydration, sagging tissue and dense scar tissue while stimulating fibroblasts to increase collagen production therefore increasing elasticity. The effect on the muscular structure benefit greatly from reduced tension and tightness thus increasing fluidity and flow throughout the tissue. Excellent for dry skin as we stimulate the diffusion of nutrients, flow of blood as well as lymph we see an evening out of oil secretion and detoxification of the skin. While on the contrary, oil production is regulated with oilier types, congestion cleared for those prone to breakouts and larger pores and puffiness and redness common to more sensitive clients are decreased due to the drainage property of the treatment. On a wellness side, clients who suffer from TMJ, migraines, sinus infections, weak immune system, bell palsy, and adrenal fatigue may also see great relief in their symptoms.
To receive full benefits for rejuvenation, lifting and revitalized skin a series of 6-12 treatments is required at least 1 time per week. A monthly regime will be established after the protocol to retain their results
Add Some Extra Care!
All additional treatments use Starflower’s organic food grade, naturally processed products or Sonage’s non-toxic, animal cruelty free, vegan, and green skincare line!
Microdermabrasion Add On ($20)
Microdermabrasion uses a machine to provide an excellent exfoliating treatment that helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, erase acne scarring, minimize pores and even out the skin tone. After this treatment your skin will feel softer, smoother and can look tighter and brighter. This is a great addition to the Refresh signature facial or back facial.
LED Light Therapy Add On ($20)
LED light therapy is a painless, relaxing, non-invasive skin-care treatment that has multiple benefits—particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne. LED treatments work by using an array of bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA!) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin. Red light LED stimulates cellular activity, including the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. That helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks, and reduce redness after more aggressive IPL or laser treatments. The results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, IPL or laser, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go. LED light therapy can be added on to any facial service.
Sonage Organic Salicylic or Glycopolomer Peel ($20)
This non invasive, organic chemical peel by Sonage is suitable for most skin types. Using either the Sonage glycopolomer or Sonage salicylic acid, receive the beneficial support for skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring or mature skin. Both options actively promote cellular renewal performance and deactivate glaciation responses. This treatment can brighten a dull complexion, tone, firm and contour the skin. There is no downtown needed to receive this peel.
Regenerative Eye Treatment ($20)
Using ingredients known for their regenerative properties, high in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and rare essential oils. This treatment will smooth fine wrinkles, promote elasticity, correct fluid retention and relieve inflammatory conditions such as swollen, red, itchy eyes. Healing and regenerative- this add on service includes techniques known to lift, sculpt, de-puff, and brighten the eye area.
Neck and Décolletage Treatment ($20)
Your neck and décolletage are some of the first places where one begins to show signs of aging. These areas are also often neglected in daily skincare regimens and while applying sun protection. This focus can provide nourishment, heal sun damage or scarring, and protect these delicate areas. This treatment includes deep exfoliation, targeted serums, moisturizer, and gentle sculpting massage techniques- such as facial gua sha, cupping facial techniques, jade rolling, and other holistic skin therapies- to the neck and Décolletage.
Kansa Scalp Treatment ($20)
Using a Tibetan Ayurvedic beauty tool made of copper, known as a kansa wand, enjoy an extra ten minutes of relaxation and bliss. This is a great way to relieve tension and create harmony by unblocking the marmas (energy points) that flow throughout the body. Most of these marmas and meridians flow along the scalp. Scalp massage with a kansa wand is enjoyable and healing to the entire body.
Extended Deep Pore Extractions ($20)
Add an additional 15 minutes to any facial service devoted to extractions, extending the time already allotted in your facial services. If your choice service does not include extractions, this add on can be a way to include them to you treatment. This service includes high frequency and honey tapping. High frequency is a non invasive method used to kill the spread of bacteria and reduce inflammation after extractions have been performed. Honey tapping is beneficial in removing blackheads, healing inflammation or scarring, increasing circulation, and clearing the complexion.
Restoring Hand Treatment ($20)
Starting with herbal steamed hot towels, let your hard working hands be cleansed and exfoliated - then massaged with your choice of body milk or massage oil to brighten and soften your hands. Enjoy a relaxing and restoring treatment through an array of nutrient intensive moisturizers customized to each need of the person.
Please Note: To ensure your comfort please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time for un-robing and personal needs before the session. If you are visiting for the first time, please add an additional 15 minutes in your own schedule for pre-session consultation. Appointments that start late due to client circumstances could result in shortened hands-on time.
Most add on treatments can be added to any Refresh service with the exception of extractions, a peel, and neck and décolletage services which can only be included to an organic skincare appointment.
