You wouldn’t go months without working out and expect to be in great shape—why assume your skin can do the same?
Spa facials are more than an occasional indulgence or an option only to be considered when battling a skin concern. Facials are an investment, paying off with each glance in the mirror.
But why monthly? As the outermost layer of your skin is renewed in 28-day cycles, monthly facials give new cells a head start. Additionally, even prescription-strength treatments require six to eight weeks to start to take effect. Spa facials speed up the renewal process, helping your daily products work faster and more effectively.
Aside from feeling like heaven, here are a few ways that Hoshall’s spa facials promote healthier, younger looking skin and help you keep your glow:
Your skin is exposed to pollutants every day, leaving dirt, grime, and even chemicals on your skin. Spa facials include cleansing that penetrates deeper than your daily rinse—cleaning out clogged pores, preventing breakouts, and addressing any damage caused by exposure to the elements.
Gone are the days when skin was classified only as dry, oily, or combination. A spa facial gives your esthetician the opportunity to pinpoint problem areas and suggest preventative or corrective actions to aggressively treat a number of skin situations.
Similar to getting a massage, the gentle, sweeping movements that occur during a spa facial help to increase circulation, facilitating the renewal of skin cells. Facial massages also relax the muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily smoothing the surface of your skin.
While traditional facials have always involved removing dead skin as part of aiding cellular renewal, advancements in microdermabrasion have taken this process even further. Unlike exfoliating scrubs sold for at-home use, microdermabrasion helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production for long-term skin health.
The ingredients contained in today's professional skin care products are designed for deeper penetration into the skin, increasing hydration and stimulating cells. Combined with facial massage, your skin immediately appears smoother, firmer in texture, and with more defined facial contours.
The last phase of every spa facial is designed to calm the skin and bring it back into balance. Breakthroughs in LED lights allow your esthetician to do more than balance your skin’s pH, taking down inflammation and targeting conditions such as premature aging, rosacea and hyperpigmentation for improvements that last.

Which Spa Facial Is Right For You?
Not sure how to choose the right facial? With as many types of facials out there as there are skin concerns, selecting the perfect facial may seem a little confusing—especially if you have combination skin or more than one skin problem you’d like addressed.
To help you select the perfect facial treatment, we recommend considering which of the following reasons you’d like your esthetician to address:
If your skin feels clogged or uneven in texture, and would benefit from a deep cleansing
If your skin is sensitive, sallow or blotchy, and potentially suffers from acne
If your skin is dry, patchy, and you’ve seen an increase in fine lines
If your complexion appears a bit drained, and would benefit from firming and plumping
If you want to prevent future skin problems, and maintain healthy, glowing skin
Regular facials are the key to clear, smooth and radiant skin throughout the year. By understanding which skin concerns you hope to address, your Hoshall’s esthetician can suggest the perfect spa facial, and even customize your treatment with our Facial Enhancements.
Don’t forget to take advantage of our spa’s relaxing atmosphere! For an immersive, relaxing experience, we invite you to come early or schedule plenty of time between treatments, to enjoy our Turkish Steam Shower and Desert Hot Sauna. Our spa coordinators will even welcome you with lunch and wine, to be enjoyed on our patio, perfect for serenely unwinding or gathering with friends.
Take the first step to healthier, happier skin and a blissful day of relaxation, by signing up for a Hoshall's monthly membership!
Give the Gift of a Spa Day Escape
Each fall, Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season with a day of gratitude and foodie-bliss. But, the five weeks that follow are generally filled with mounting seasonal stress and a devil-may-care attitude towards our well being.
This year, instead of gorging on sweets cakes and wine to wind down after making your list (and checking it, not twice, but thrice), consider a better way to undo the damage of being under pressure with a pampering spa day at Hoshall’s.
Whether in search of an extended escape or a single treatment, Hoshall’s day spa is the perfect place to disconnect, rejuvenate, and reinspire.
To start your stress relief, allow yourself to be swept away by a Swedish, Deep Tissue, or Hot Stone Massage—each of which improves circulation, releases tension, and leaves you feeling light enough to defy gravity.
From there, experience the clarity-boosting, anti-aging power of our skincare experiences. As you lay comfortably swaddled in warmed sheets, drifting away to soothing sounds, our expert estheticians will treat your skin to impeccable pore-cleansing, surface-smoothing, vitamin-infusing, and eyebrow-grooming treatments, leaving you glowing with flawless, no-need-for-makeup results.
To feel like total perfection from head to toe, don’t forget to give your fingers and feet their own red carpet treatment. Hoshall’s Signature Manicure and Signature Pedicure go a step beyond polish, revitalizing hands and feet with a series of luxurious treatments designed to smooth and restore moisture.
Taking a pre-festivities refresher day is a wonderful way to become more attuned to your body and mind—and better equipped to deal with holiday stress.
And don't forget to arrive early! Access to Hoshall’s private patio and Turkish-inspired amenities are included with every service, enhancing your sense or serenity or providing the perfect atmosphere in which to spend time with visiting family and friends—we'll even provide your party with a delectable lunch.

P.S. - Can’t figure out what to get the ladies in your life? Give the gift of a spa day! Choose from our enticing selection of treatments—each decadent and fully customizable, thanks to our menu of skin-indulgent add-ons—and allow those you love to soak up a day of pure bliss.
Want to go lighter, faster? You may have heard of Olaplex, the treatment helps you push the envelope—to go blonder without compromising the integrity of your hair.
Olaplex can mean going from black to blonde in half the time, reaching true platinum without sacrificing the way your hair feels, or a whole head of highlights on previously color-corrected hair.
Since Olaplex treatments have made it possible for stylists to create such dramatic changes in your hair color, it’s taken the salon world by storm. Now, as something of a catch-all buzzword for anyone thinking of going lighter, there’s some confusion as to what Olaplex is and what it can do.
Here’s what you need to know: Olaplex isn’t just another hair conditioning treatment
Instead, it’s a patented three-part system that permanently rebuilds the damaged disulfide bonds in your hair. These bonds are broken during any chemical process, whether your stylist is depositing permanent color or straightening your tresses.
Once those bonds are broken, your hair is more prone to additional damage incurred from heat styling, environmental factors, and additional chemical processes.
And that’s where Olaplex’s difference really shines: Repair and conditioning treatments can temporarily treat dry, damaged, and splitting strands. However, Olaplex rebuilds the strength, structure and integrity of your hair, restructuring bonds that have been damaged even after years of over-bleaching.
In short, Olaplex is a chemical mending process that’s like a “reset” for your locks—and it’s available at Hoshall’s for just $25.
