Whether you need a little rest and relaxation or to treat a specific concern, we have crafted and curated products and treatments that allow us to work with you to achieve your skin goals. Most of our treatments can be enhanced by adding on, including modalities such as microdermabrasion, masks or peels.

All of Skintopia's facials include a double cleanse, exfoliation, steam, extractions, facial massage and a specific mask. You will also relax with an arm, hand and scalp massage. (Some restrictions may apply.)

One-Hour Facial $95

A specific facial customized to your skin to refresh, revitalize and enhance the natural glow back into your skin. (This facial does not include arm, hand and scalp massage).

Signature Facial $105

A Skintopia Signature Facial addresses everyday concerns or needs and is suitable for all skin types. This is a goal-oriented facial and comes with a mild and gentle exfoliant. A great first time facial, maintenance treatment and more specific treatment will be suggested for your personal needs for your future appointments.

Anti-Acne Facial $110

The acne facial is ideal for relieving clogged pores and helping with acne prone skin. It is a more aggressive facial which includes three different exfoliations to get to the root of the problem. This service includes a very light facial massage; we do not want to stimulate more oil glands with a facial massage. You will have dramatic results instantly.

Anti-Aging Facial $125

Wonderful exfoliation for your specific needs. This will revitalize the surface layer of skin for deeper penetration of the Age Smart line from Dermalogica. A great add-on to this facial would be the Collagen Boosting Mask.

Ultrasound Facial $135

The Skintopia Ultrasound Facial specifically targets your skin type. Ultrasound will remove dead skin cells that block pores, but it will not damage living skin cells in the lower layers of the skin. It is great for acne to dry to aging, discolored skin. This service includes a deeper exfoliation as the ultrasound penetrates further into skin tissues and completes by penetrating the mask into deeper skin tissue as well. This is a great facial to add a specialty make or eye treatment too.

Seaweed Facial* $135

The Seaweed facial is great for hydrating dull and depleted skin. It works well with all skin types. It immediately enhances and plumps the skin dramatically. It delivers a cooling and tightening effect. This is an amazing facial for special occasions and brides. A great add-on to this facial would be the Thermal Mineral Mask.

*Please note you cannot be allergic to shellfish for iodine.

Dermalogica carries a line called Clean Start that is specifically designed for teenagers. We prefer facials starting ages 12-19.

Deluxe Express Facial $75

The Deluxe Express Facial is a 45-minute facial that has all the essentials you need! It includes a triple exfoliation process which includes an aloe-based signature peel and scrub with lactic, salicylic and glycolic acid. A Vitamin C hydrating mask will then be applied which helps to plump, brighten, tone and tighten the skin. We then cool the skin with a cooling device that's been resting on ice. This is an amazing goal-oriented facial. Suitable for all skin type as well as pregnant or lactating women.


Add any of the following treatments to a full facial of your choice:

Thermal Mineral Mask $15

This heated mask becomes hard and heats the skin to penetrate the product deeper into the skin's tissue for optimal results.

Collagen Mask $15

This rich collagen mask restores moisture and elasticity while diminishing signs of aging. Also can be applied over the eye area.

Thermal Mineral Mask with Collagen Mask $25

We recommend combining the Thermal Mineral Mask and the Collagen Mask together because the heat from the Thermal Mineral Mask opens your pores to penetrate the specific products layered underneath to give enhanced results once the mask cools and contracts on the skin.

Soothing Cucumber $15

Natural brightening conditioners in this mask improve skins texture and hydrate the skin.

Eye and Lip Renewal Treatment (25 minutes) $35

Treat multiple eye area concerns like dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles, loss of volume and firmness with this advanced peptide eye treatment designed to gently exfoliate, rehydrate, smooth lines and boost new collagen while improving overall firmness and tone. Combined with the supreme lip conditioning treatment which smoothes away flaky damaged skin that can result from lip makeup and the environment. By infusing firming peptides and repairing vitamins into the perioral area, it restores the delicate lip tissue back to optimum health while smoothing fine feather lines and erasing the signs of aging.

Glycolic/Retinol, Lactic Acid, Brightening or Organic Peel $25
