Skincare consultations include daily skincare routines as well as recommendations for monthly and yearly treatments that are typically on the esthetics side of care. Sydney works closely with the estheticians at Spa Novus to help you reach your skincare goals.
An esthetician specializes in analyzing your skin and deciding the appropriate treatments for you. Sydney believes the best skincare is achieved when skincare plans include both the medical side and esthetics sides.

Laser and microneedling treatments are offered through SIPS (334-699-7477)
Exfoliators remove dead skin cells, brighten skin, even skin tone; also makes you feel amazing!
𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝘃 𝗣𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹
Use a physical exfoliator 1-3 times weekly to remove dead skin cells, and gently encourage blackheads and clogged pores to leave your skin. I prefer in shower due to gritty nature.
Physical exfoliators are about texture. Think the sand near the ocean on a beach.
My favorite physical exfoliator for the face: Vasanti BrightenUp! $34
For the body, I love any sea salt scrub.
𝘛𝘪𝘱: use a warm washcloth as a physical exfoliator especially over bumps you want to pop... instead of squeezing 🙂
𝘊𝘩𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 exfoliators are about active ingredients: alpha-hydroxyl acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs).
AHA = glycolic acid, lactic acid
BHA = salicylic acid
Chemical exfoliators are sometimes mixed with these physical exfoliators or used alone.
Overexfoliating or overdrying skin causes body to produce MORE oil so moisturize and don’t exfoliate too often... Li𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 S𝘬𝘪𝘯
The Obagi Professional-C Exfoliator + Mask is great for hyperpigmentation and not sensitive skin. It have 30% Vitamin C and works for sure. Even with my normal-oily skin I can inly do it about twice monthly.
For sensitive skin, La Roche-Posay is always my recommendation, and see the exfoliator for sensitive skin in the Shop.
