Face Wash FAQ's
WHAT IS A FACE WASH? No fluff, just results! Face wash are “express” being that they are around 30-45 minutes and typically do not include extractions (try a detailed face wash for deeper cleansing). We focus on results and treating a specific skin care characteristic. Think of this as a carwash but for your skin. Our Face Wash is like a car fresh out of a hand car wash. Your face will be clean, buffed to perfection, and shining.
CBQ USES HYDRO MACHINES...WHAT IS THAT? Hydro face machines are the latest in skin care and an alternative to hydrodermabrasion. It combines the natural benefits of oxygen and water to shoot a pressurized stream of saline solution onto the skin. The high velocity of this procedure effectively removes dead skin cells at first contact, exfoliating and soothing the skin at the same time. Hydro face machine hydrates, cleans, and revitalizes skin while supporting healthy blood circulation. Better circulation, in turn, promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibers that tighten the skin and promote a youthful look.
