What to Expect With Skin Care by Alison

  • The time listed for each service is the time we spend on your treatment.  Expect to spend an additional 15-20 minutes with us beyond your treatment time to allow for Q&A and to discuss your skin care needs, goals, and home care  We believe you deserve the full treatment time.
  • Our intake form asks about your skin, products used and lifestyle because these affect the health of your skin (lifestyle includes diet, stress levels, and how much you move).
