Skin Care Prep For Your Upcoming Facial
It is best to wait 2 full weeks to receive a facial after Botox, Fillers, and Laser Treatments. This allows the injectables time to settle and the skin to heal properly.
Discontinue using Retin-A, Retinol, Glycolic, AHA, BHA, and any other exfoliants 3 days prior to your facial treatment. You may resume these products 3 days post-facial unless directed otherwise.
Every facial is customized to your specific skin needs. Farrah specializes in Acne, Maskne, Anti-Aging, Sensitive, and Rosacea, skin. She has mastered facial techniques and uses professional and medical-grade products that are safe and effective for everyone, including expecting mothers. Please be sure to let Farrah know if you are expecting so she can turn off the heated bed, make sure you are comfortable with extra pillows for support, and will only use pregnancy-friendly products.
To prepare your skin for Special Occasions, Farrah recommends the LeValléy Oxygéne Lift Facial 24-48 hours prior to your event. If you are a bride getting ready for your big day…Congratulations!!! Facial sessions every 4-6 weeks starting at 6 months prior to your wedding is recommended to achieve desired results.
Post Facial Recommendations For Best Results
Avoid working out and wearing makeup for 24 hours
Avoid touching your skin to reduce possible breakouts
Clean your makeup brushes weekly
Wear an SPF 30 or 50! Your skin is going to be more vulnerable to sun damage after a facial once the top layers of dead skin have been removed. You must wear SPF 5 days post-facial, however, it is recommended to wear it every day. Don’t forget to reapply every few hours while in the sun or working in front of your computer.
Sleep on a fresh pillowcase every night
Wait 3 days to exfoliate (facial scrubs, AHAs/BHAs, retinol) post facial
Ask Farrah if you have questions about your home-care routine for the best results possible

Dermaplaning is a safe, effective, and painless exfoliation procedure. A sterile surgical scalpel is used to slough off the top layer of skin, removing dead cells, and vellus hair “peach fuzz”. This leaves your skin smooth and glowing! Removing the hair this way does not affect the hair follicle or root so it is impossible for the hair to grow back thicker or darker. The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother, provides deeper product penetration, while reducing the appearance fine lines, and acne scars. This treatment is great for all skin types, with instant results and no downtime!
Extractions with High Frequency
An extraction is a process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Comedones “blackheads” are the most common reason for extraction. A blackhead is not necessarily "dirt in the pores" it is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. Pustules, pimples, and milia can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted. All facial treatments at LeValléy Beauty Boutique include extractions. However, some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several skin treatments before they can be cleared.
High Frequency oxygenates the surface of the skin. This kills bacteria, stimulates circulation, and aids in detoxification which also minimizes red inflamed skin. This treatment can also aid in shrinking pores, reducing signs of aging, and stopping persistent acne in its tracks. It is the perfect device to use after extractions for the best results.
