Last week I told you about my consultation for a skin service at the Little Rock Cosmetic Service Center and today I am going to tell you all about my facial! Can I just say that I had never been more ready for a facial in all of my life? My skin has just been blah lately and going to Vegas and being in all of that super dry air didn’t help me out at all!
As I mentioned in my last post, Crystal’s room for skin services is extremely tranquil. The bed you lay on is heated and so so so soft!! I think I need a heated bed like that at home, LOL!
The Cosmetic Surgery Center uses Skin Therapeutic skincare products. I had never heard of these products but I can tell you that they work! During my facial I got the usual treatments including a face cleanse, exfoliation, and masks. My treatment also included extraction, a pumpkin enzyme mask (that smelled amazing!!!), and a lactic acid peel. I realize that the peel may sound painful but it was actually pretty dang wonderful.
I don’t know about you but when I think of a peel all I can think about is Samantha from Sex and the City and her burned up face after. You know what I’m talking about?? If not google it. Yeah…not cool!
Well I can happily report that this peel is nothing like that. Lactic Acid peels aid skin cell turnover and is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and some skin discoloration. Post-facial my skin was literally glowing and felt so so so good!!
After the peel a moisturizer was applied and then I got a neck, shoulder, and arm massage. This may have been my favorite part of the whole thing! HA! My poor neck and shoulders carry a lot of tension and I have never been more relaxed than during this part of the facial.
One thing I don’t like about most of the facials I have gotten is how greasy my skin feels after. However after this facial my face felt moisturized but not overly so. I really loved how I felt and how I looked! In fact, I was feeling so good I took a little selfie in the car after! As you can see I have no crazy burned look from the peel and I’m not super oily looking either, it was just right! Crystal may just be some sort of skincare magician. Really though…
So if you are in Central Arkansas and you skin is feeling blah I would definitely recommend you check out the Cosmetic Surgery Center and let Crystal work her magic on you!! Contact her at 501-227-0707

I had a facial about a million years ago, but I have wanted to go for another one for a long time. I would LOVE to get a peel, too!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I’d love to have a facial like this one. It’s been years since I really pampered myself.
Tessa S. says
That sounds like a great facial! I especially love that you didn’t come away with greasy feeling skin. I HATE that!
Kelli @ 3 Boys and a Dog says
This sounds wonderful! If only Arkansas were closer! lol Your skin looks amazing, this will be something I definitely look up in my area!
I have never had an official facial before! I have had a few home treatments but never a real one! That is looks awesome you did great results!
I love spoiling myself with facials. I have only done two in my life, but I would go back for a ton more if my budget would allow me to!
I have never had a facial in my life. I have a weird thing about people touching my face. But I do remember the Samantha facial peel episode of Sex and the City….and that’s what I think of when I hear chemical peel
A peel would do wonders for my dry winter skin. If I’m ever in the neighborhood I will check them out and spoil myself.
Sounds like you had a wonderful time. You look so fresh and your skin looks amazing! I’ve never had a facial in along time.
It has been like three years since I had my last facial. I should find the time to have my skin deeply cleaned. Do you have facials regularly?
Travel Blogger says
I love a good facial! It is always so rejuvenating. I will have to keep this in mind if I am ever in Arkansas.
Miles L. says
It turns out really great for you! I would like to have a facial from this place. Thanks for sharing.
I love facial like that. i don’t have a time for myself to relax.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Wow! Your skin really glowed after that facial. Thank you for sharing your experience. Crystal must be really good at what she does.
This sounds like a great alternative to some of the other options out there. This may be a good thing for my mom who has been looking for something like this.
Ann Bacciaglia says
I have been thinking of trying a peel for my face. There are so many great options now for skin care treatments.
Chubskulit Rose says
I am not crazy about greasy feeling as well after facial treatment. Your skin looks great!
Up Run for Life says
I haven’t had a facial peel before but it sounds heavenly. I do use a sugar scrub on my face.
Crystal Lopez says
I have never had a peel before either! However facials are so indulgent and amazing! I can say I have had a couple of those!

I just had an amazing facial this weekend…it was heaven!!! I love the feel of my skin after a facial!
I have never had a facial before. I think they would be a great experience though. I’m sure they’re very relaxing.
