Facials & Chemical Peels Q&A

What is a facial?

If you’re like many, you probably are most familiar with a basic facial you might receive at a spa or salon. These treatments focus on the relaxation aspects of a facial and include basic cleansing, toning, exfoliation, and moisturizing. 

While a facial is always a great opportunity to relax, medical-grade facials also offer a chance to address specific skin concerns. The first step in a facial at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa is a professional skin consultation and a discussion of your skin type and needs. From there, your provider suggests the perfect facial for you.

What types of facials are available?

Freya’s Lair Medical Spa offers many different facial options to address a wide range of skin care needs. Your practitioner guides you toward the options that are right for your skin. 

Acne facial

This treatment incorporates alpha and beta hydroxy acids from IMAGE Skincare to reduce inflammation and help control redness and promote healing. You leave with skin that feels clean, refreshed, and hydrated. 

Illuminating facial

This service addresses areas of discoloration using advanced exfoliation techniques and skin-lightening products. Botanical formulations from IMAGE Skincare use stem cells harvested from echinacea plants to give your skin a healthy and youthful glow. 

Oxygen facial

This facial harnesses the power of oxygen to refresh and renew your skin. The products used contain peptides, plant-derived stem cells, and botanically-sourced enzymes, and the facial also includes a peel, mask, moisturizer, and sun protection. 

Each facial at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa offers an excellent way to take great care of your skin and to spend some time relaxing and allowing yourself to be pampered. 

What advanced facial treatments are available?

There are several facial therapies that incorporate advanced technology to deliver impressive results. During your initial consultation, your practitioner can advise you which options best meet your needs. 

AnteAgeⓇ stem cell microneedling

This treatment begins with a microneedling session, where a device covered in sterile needles creates hundreds of tiny channels into the deep layers of your skin. This prompts your body to create new collagen and elastin, firming and smoothing your skin from within. AnteAge stem cell growth factor serum is added and sinks into the microneedling channels where it goes to work to speed cellular regeneration. Microneedling can also be a stand-alone treatment. 

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can treat skin discoloration, scars, and wrinkles and are most common for use on the face, but use on the chest, hands, or neck is possible, too.

There are three depths of chemical peels, light, medium, or deep. The deeper the chemical peel, the longer the recovery time required.


This facial treatment uses powered jets of water to gently yet effectively exfoliate your skin. It helps improve the signs of aging and address blemishes and discoloration while also boosting circulation and lymph flow.
