Extraction Facial Treatment Plan
Your skin is as individual as you are. The best thing you can do is get a full skin analysis consultation with aesthetician. We offer a great range of
Cosmedix facial extractions for both men and women in Melbourne, designed to relax and treat your skin's individual needs.
Your clinical facial will begin with a discussion of your current skin health, concerns, skin habits, history, and product use.
If you choose to, you are welcome to bring in the skin products you currently use so that you can discuss them with your aesthetician.
