A NOTE ABOUT CLINICAL AND SIGNATURE SERVICES
At Blue Water Spa we understand our patients have busy lives, thus we created a line of “Express” services that are designed for men and women who want glowing, healthy-looking skin, without spending a lot of time or money. Most of these services are performed in less than 30 minutes. These are great for clients wanting to pop in and out during appointments or even on their lunch break.
These rejuvenating treatments are performed by one of our expertly-trained and experienced medical aestheticians using the finest medical grade products available. If you are receiving a chemical peel based service, our Blue Water Spa aestheticians will select the appropriate peel compound based on your skin type and your individual skin needs. These light peels require no down time and require a short time to perform, and that will allow you to “Go and Glow!” Depending on the condition of the skin and the exfoliant used, the patient may or may not experience visible peeling. The chemical exfoliants are releasing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen growth whether or not peeling skin is observed post treatment.
These services are a “no frills” procedure, but it can give your skin a wonderful boost between more intensive and / or relaxing treatments that your aesthetician can discuss with you if you desire. Services do not include extractions, masks, massage or disrobing unless indicated. If extractions, masks or other add-ons are desired they can be performed at a follow up appointment, or, on occasions when the schedule permits. Extractions, masks or other add-ons can be added for an additional fee.
Blue Water Spa Clinical and Signature services are a wonderful way to start a skin care regimen for someone new to professional, medical grade skin care, as well as people who have been enjoying a skin care regimen for years and just want to get in and out without any of the frills. For those desiring a more relaxing spa service, we would recommend one of our Luxe or Bliss level treatments.
