Add on Combo- neck and declotte
Savings can be found when combining these two add ons. Treat yourself and reap the benefits of both regenerating treatments.
Add on- LED Light Therapy
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. can be addded on to any facial service.
Add On- Microdermabrasion
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, as well as look tighter and brighter. This is a great addition to a signature facial or back facial.

Refresh is the private practice and passion of Licensed Esthetician and Reiki Practitioner Robin Baggs. Over the years, Robin herself experienced many skin concerns. As a teenager, a Dermatologist diagnosed her with Grade Four Cystic acne, telling her there was little that can be done to care for this condition - that can render the affected with pain, scaring and can trigger insecurity. A family friend made the recommendation that Robin see an Esthetician. This connection lead to health and healing as well as igniting Robin’s interest for skin care and helping others. She learned that with the help of a knowledgeable professional and personal commitment to your own skin health - even difficult challenges can improve and one can feel better in their own skin! Change happens with regular appointments and commitment - not only has she experienced that herself but has seen fantastic improvements with her clients!
