It is something I do enjoy getting done at a Spa, but honestly for me, it is so difficult to find the time to schedule such a luxury service. Living in rural America, the drive to a bigger town takes every bit of an hour to an hour and a half, so 3 hours round trip is gone. Then, once you get to the Spa, you wait your turn, which can be up to a half hour of your time. The Spa treatment is typically booked for a half hour or one hour time slot. For me, as a busy Doc, Mom and wife, with a full time job plus on call and working on my Younger You Biz, it takes almost a full day to accomplish the service, which I really do not have the time to do! And on a sunny day or weekend, no thank you! I do not want to be inside and my weekends are almost always "booked" with friends, family or work. And while it is nice to be pampered, I do feel a bit decadent while getting the facial as I am the one usually helping someone to feel better, and it is hard for me to be on the receiving end.
Finally, the cost of the service can be quite a bit.....and we must not forget to add a generous tip, typically 20%! I have been collecting Spa pamphlets for years, in case I ever start a Med Spa. I reviewed the myriad of pamphlets today. The price range for facials, depending on what you get done and where (Plain, with oxygen, with chocolate, with a Chippendale & Chocolate(lol), anti-aging) is $30 to $150 for 50-60 minutes , with add on costs of $20 for "restorative" eye therapy. That is no cheap date!
This is one huge reason I love having my own business with Rodan + Fields Premium skin care, with clinically proven products. that truly work. I can work or play all day, and then go to my bathroom and exfoliate, roll, and moisturize to my hearts content,,,,and I come out feeling like I spent all day at the Spa!
Speaking of mini-facials, as part of my business, I do give out mini-facial samplers that you can do in the privacy of your own bathroom, and it leaves your skin feeling smooth and clean. If you would like a free consult, a mini-facial is included as a complimentary gift from me. Consults can be done over the phone or via face time for those people who are not local.
