Facials are an excellent adjunct to our other treatments, or as a standalone rejuvenating therapy.
Through a process of cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing the skin, aesthetic facials can produce immediate and dramatic improvements in the skins’ clarity, hydration, and health, and reduce pore size and superficial texture & tone irregularities. Perhaps most appealing is that the process is immensely pleasant and relaxing.
A peel is often employed in a facial. It utilizes acids to produce a more substantive exfoliation.
After engaging in a consultation and a skin analysis our aestheticians are committed to providing facials customized to each guest’s individual skin type and specific to their objectives.
Let us help you to customize a facial treatment that best suits you and your skin!

When you choose the RIVER ACNE FACIAL our highly trained estheticians will give you the perfect balance between pampering and practical treatments! This treatment begins with cleansing & exfoliating the skin. Then a salicylic solution and massage is used to enhance skin rejuvenation and healing. Blue LED light therapy is used to further suppress Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), an acne-causing bacteria. We add a stabilized salicylic acid gel and finish with a balancing anti-oxidant moisturizer. For problematic areas River Med Spa also offers IPL for acne.
Fundamentals are vital. The RIVER FUNDAMENTAL FACIAL is appropriate for all skin types and is especially great for dry or sensitive skin due to its high content of essential fatty acids (EFA), anti-inflammatory action, and ability to hydrate the skin. Using oat milk as a key ingredient we reduce redness and sooth the skin. Glycerin and sodium hyaluronate dramatically improve hydration of the skin. We finish with a balancing anti-oxidant moisturizer, a weightless sunblock and a jojoba lip balm.

The RIVER DERMAPLANE treatment facilitates the exfoliation process, removing the upper layers of skin and fine vellus hair. A hydrating mask and a HA boosting serum are subsequently applied. Cryotherapy is then used to close the facial pores. The facial is completed with a moisturizer, sunblock and lip balm to ensure you are ready to take on the town.

River Med Spa also offers RF Microneedling to the neck, an area often fraught with crepey skin, which produces a profound improvement in neck skin laxity.
The RIVER RF MICRONEEDLING FACIAL WITH PRP is the ultimate anti-aging skin treatment. It includes everything from our skin tightening RF microneedling facial and adds microneedling of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). A guest’s blood is drawn and spun to collect the PRP, also known as “Liquid Gold,” (for those in the know, the stuff of vampires!) which is rich in collagen-stimulating growth factors. PRP injected into the dermis creates a beautiful skin glow.

Boost the benefits of the RIVER FACIAL RF with the application of PRP. The micropores created by the microneedling procedure enhance the absorption of PRP – improving the production of collagen and achieving a brighter beautiful skin.
This facial is the ultimate anti-aging treatment as it has everything from our basic microneedling facial and also includes PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin). A guest’s blood is drawn and processed to collect the PRF, also known as “Liquid Gold,” which is rich in collagen-stimulating components. PRF is recognized by the body and is absorbed deeper into the tissue which allows for a slow release of growth factors, accelerating your results to the next level.
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technology that exploits micro-injuries & radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production; the natural healing response enhances collagen & elastin production – which improves the texture, tone, and tension of the skin. RF microneedling also dramatically improves scars, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and can slim areas with increased adipose.
Although the technology requires natural processes you can expect to see significant improvements in your skin within 1-2 weeks. You will have a smoother, brighter, and firmer complexion. Results of RF microneedling can last years – and scar reduction is often a permanent benefit. Photodamage and skin aging will benefit from repeated treatments and optimal skincare.
This treatment uses microneedles to create controlled microinjuries in your skin, this provokes a healing response to the wounds. Microneedling with radiofrequency helps stimulate the collagen repair-response creating a firmer, and smoother complexion.
Unlike Neurotoxins, Fillers, PDO threads, etc. the benefits of microneedling can last for years, and scar reduction is typically a permanent improvement. Nevertheless, repeat treatments at 8-12 weeks intervals can provide additive improvement.
Some people experience very little downtime with RF microneedling, however, others with more sensitive skin may see blotchy erythema or crusting at the needle sites for up to a week.
