Benefits of Facials in San Francisco

Deep Cleaning

Your cleansing process for your facial removes dirt, oils, toxins, and pollutants from your skin, helping your skin to breathe again.

Gentle Exfoliation

Our exfoliation process gently removes any leftover debris and dead skin cells, plus it cleans out your pores (which helps with acne!).

Blemish Removal

Your Elinea Med Spa provider will extract those pimples without damaging your skin. You’ll have instant improvements for smoother, cleaner skin.

Look Healthier

Facials can decrease the “stressed look” of your skin by accelerating cell regeneration, boosting collagen production, and giving you the “me time” you deserve.

What to Expect

Step 1: Consultation

Our facials in San Francisco start with a personal, one-on-one consultation. We’ll talk about your concerns and goals and examine your treatment area.

Step 2: Planning

If one of our signature facials will best address your needs, we’ll walk you through the choices, pick the appropriate facial, and schedule your appointment.

Step 3: Choices

You’ll enjoy 1 of 3 customizable Elinea Med Spa facials: Express Facial (40 minutes), Custom Facial (60 minutes), or our Signature Facial (90 minutes).

Step 4: Treatment

Every facial includes skin cleansing, gentle exfoliation, precise extraction, and a soothing face mask. Levels may include lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy, and/or double-cleansing.

Step 5: Recovery

Because they’re noninvasive and nonsurgical, our facials require zero downtime. You can go about your normal routine with skin that feels & looks fabulous.

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. …

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I’ve been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I’ve been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. …

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about products and treatments. I had a bunch of skincare questions and Monica was really informative. I know there are other advanced procedures at Elinea such as Botox, injectables, etc but for me and for now, I am happy taking small steps in my journey to great skin. Elinea is a warm and beautiful new space in the Castro. I am booking my next skincare treatment now!

I've been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. The next day, I looked seriously five years younger. My skin was taut, supple and super hydrated...many fine lines were minimized. I'm definitely going to get this treatment again. Monica knows her stuff.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who wants cleaner, smoother, and more glowing skin—without resurfacing, surgery, or injections—will love the results of a facial. However, you should refrain from having a facial if your treatment area exhibits:

  • Cold sores
  • Warts
  • Bacterial infection
  • Fungal infection
  • Sensitivity to products
  • Cuts or abrasions
  • Recent scarring
  • Active acne
  • Skin tags
  • Recent sunburn
  • Bruising and/or swelling

You will see immediate results from facials in San Francisco! The key to long-term benefit is to have maintenance sessions. You’ll achieve a more vibrant complexion, and your skin’s renewed health—supported by your maintenance sessions—means fewer outbreaks after your facial.

Your optimal results should last 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the facial you’ve chosen.

Absolutely! Women and men come to Elinea Med Spa for the benefits of a facial. Your provider will discuss your needs and goals with you and examine your facial skin. A facial is great for aging skin, helping you look younger as it removes dry and dull skin cells, rehydrating your skin as it cleans. Also—you don’t have to shave!  You can shave before you go to bed the night before, but don’t shave the day of your facial. Plus, you’ll need to not shave for about 3 days after your facial, as shaving is a form of exfoliation.
