The Ditesheim Signature Facial is customizable according to skin type and concerns, and can be used to treat acne, enlarged pores, dullness, sensitivity, fine lines and wrinkles, or a lack of firmness.

Our Hydrating Calming Facial contains a combination of humectants to draw moisture to the epidermis and occlusive agents to hold it in.
First, we prepare the skin with a hydrating cleanser and a double cleanser to remove any excess dirt and makeup from the skin. This facial treatment does not require steam, preventing the skin from becoming even more sensitive. The second step is exfoliation. We will use a gentle exfoliating treatment which will remove surface build-up without causing irritation. This increases cell turnover and controls excessive dryness, creating no resistance to hydrating products like peptides, glycerin, and niacinamides. This helps skin matrix proteins restore hydration into the cells, restoring and protecting the skin and creating a naturally plump appearance with decreased inflammation or lines. For the next steps, our esthetician will perform extraction only as needed. Our esthetician will calm skin as necessary with our cooling masks that will protect the skin. Meanwhile, your will receive a relaxing shoulders and hands massage to help you feel refreshed and ready. Your skin will thank you for this amazing treatment.
We customized this facial using anti-inflammatory ingredients that will combat irritation, redness, and discomfort in the skin. Another purpose for this treatment is to increase hydration to control excessive dryness. Antioxidants and growth factors are another benefit of this treatment; antioxidants are molecules that slow and prevent the oxidation in the cells and growth factors enhance the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, increasing new production of cells and preventing future signs of aging. The Hydrating Calming Facial provides anti-inflammatory benefits to calm and soothe irritated skin from sensitivity or skin that has excess sun exposure. Finally, the treatment strengthens and acts as a building block for stronger skin.
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment which uses a small blade for manual exfoliation. The treatment gently removes dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” hairs from the skin’s surface. By carefully removing debris, dead cells, and small hairs from the skin’s surface, our esthetician creates a more youthful, smooth, and luminous appearance. Dermaplaning is completely comfortable. During treatment, our esthetician will use the dermaplaning tool to gently scrape the skin at a 45-degree angle. Dermaplaning generally takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. This treatment option is suitable for many skin types.
Dermaplaning can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, or fine lines and wrinkles. After dermaplaning, your skin will appear less dull or dry and look smoother, more youthful, and healthier.

However, those who have more advanced signs of aging might need additional treatments and a combination of different modalities to stimulate cell turn over and reverse signs of aging. During a consultation, our esthetician will guide you in the right direction with a personalized treatment plan for your skin type and concerns. In addition to the Anti-Aging Facial treatment, our esthetician will help with a daily products regimen catered to your needs to improve overall skin quality.
The Anti-Aging facial begins with a skin analysis to determine what treatment our Esthetician will prepare for you. Each facial is carefully selected to achieve smoother skin with apha and beta hydroxy acids among other products such as retinols or hyaluronic acid. Treatment also includes exfoliation performed with a polish that instantly smooths skin, dissolving oils and removing dead skin cells which can create a dull surface or clogged pores. Following exfoliation, your skin will feel refreshed with a deep cleaning of the pores; between our products and the hands of our esthetician your pores will be all clean of all impurities and dead cells. After the skin is cleansed and exfoliated, we follow with a facial and décolleté massage for relaxation and extra cleansing after extractions. Next, a mask and serums containing active ingredients will target oily skin, hyperpigmentation or brown spots, dullness, sagging and thinning, or mature/dry and skin that losing elasticity. Next, while mask in working into the skin, a hand and shoulders massage is performed to continue the relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
The Anti-Aging Facial is designed to fight visible signs of aging, focusing on fine lines, wrinkles, and dehydrated skin. The treatment results in revitalized, energized, and nourished skin. Our esthetician’s approach to managing the triggers of skin aging helps to keep skin smoother, firmer, and healthier for longer. The goal is to improve the quality of skin by increasing elasticity and firmness through a healthy balance of hydration and exfoliation.
This acne treatment is designed to treat acne and the stages of acne. A series of treatment sessions of the Teen Acne Facial is an effective treatment for healing acneic skin.
First, your esthetician will start with a skin analysis and determination of which active acne products will be most effective for your skin. The skin is then cleansed using an oil control cleanser to lift all the dirt and debris away from the skin. The second step is deep exfoliation using a polish that instantly smooth skin and gently dissolve oil, removing dulling or clogging skin cells. Following exfoliation, your esthetician will use another cleanser that dissolves crystals in exfoliating polish and facilitate removal of products. This third step focuses on detoxifying and cleaning all the impurities of the pores. The extraction portion of this facial is very important because it cleanses the blocked pores, releasing all the excess of oils and dead cells that can build up. This process can be very satisfying for the patient, as it results in having clear skin. Last but not least, your esthetician will focus on the individual results with an active mask that treats and prevents acne, reduces sebum, and calms irritation. This mask absorbs surface oils and removes debris to help keep pores clear.
If the skin needs more hydration following these steps, additional masks to improve comfort for reactive skin and relieve skin sensitivity may be used. These additional masks provide soothing benefits to help reduce redness and irritation and offer intense hydration restoration. This therapeutical mask may be used as a massage cream that will comfort with an amazing massage to relax. Following treatment, skin will feel replenished, purified, and soothed. Finally, the acne facial is completed by a moisturizer and SPF to prevent post hyperpigmentation.
The skin naturally loses its ability to use or hold oxygen over time. By age 30, this ability has decreased by about 30% on average, and continues to a reduction of about 50% by age 50. This causes signs of aging like wrinkles and dullness. Oxy-Mist works using Amino-Plex, a product which contains over 100 key ingredients such as amino acids, minerals, electrolytes, and vitamin E. This is sprayed onto the skin using medical grade oxygen, stimulating collagen production, destroying bacteria, and improving circulation for visibly reduced damage and luminous, younger-looking skin.
