What should I expect?
Expect to leave your facial feeling relaxed and revived. All of our products are seaweed-based and include active plant botanicals, resulting in a nourishing treatment to reinvigorate the skin. Combined with our signature, craniosacral inspired therapeutic massage, our facials will leave your skin glowing without irritation.
Do I need to wash my face prior to the facial?
No, we've got you covered!
Will my skin be red and irritated after my facial?
OSEA Facials focus on restoring and nourishing the skin with our soothing seaweed-based products. Most guests walk away from their facial looking refreshed and ready to take on the day with a gorgeous glow! Our facials do not include harsh treatments like peels. Some of our products with more active botanical ingredients and/or our signature facial massage may activate circulation, bringing a rosy flush to the skin. This typically eases within a couple of hours. Drinking plenty of water to keep skin hydrated post-facial will reduce any flushing. Remember that sun exposure, alcohol, and caffeine can also dehydrate skin and cause further redness.
If I have a beard, should I shave before my facial?
You can still receive a facial if you have a beard. If you do choose to shave, please do so 24 hours before your treatment.
Where do I park?
There is a dedicated parallel parking space located directly in front of the studio at the curb that is painted green. There is also street parking available on Abbot Kinney and around the corner on Washington Way. You may also find metered parking on Venice Blvd.
When should I arrive?
Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to have a glass of water and relax before your session.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your OSEA Facial, please allow a minimum of 24 hours notice. Appointments cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment time will be charged 50% of the service fee and no OSEA credit will be redeemable. Additionally, no-shows will be charged 50% of the service fee with no redeemable OSEA credit.
If you are up 20 minutes late for your facial, you may have the remaining time at full cost. Clients who arrive more than 20 minutes late will be asked to reschedule.
How do I care for my skin after my facial?
Your esthetician will advise on how to best treat your individual skin after your facial. In general, we recommend you stay out of the sun and try to relax the rest of the day. Stay hydrated with plenty of water and be sure to use a fresh pillowcase that night.
Can I wear makeup right after my facial?
It is best to let your skin breathe and absorb all of the nutrients from your treatment.
