Forest Spa Boutique

San Francisco Services

For our San Francisco services we work together with Dr. Peled from Peled Plastic Surgery, an outstanding plastic surgery clinic that is located on 525 Spruce Street in San Francisco. Dr. Peled was listed in Marin Magazine in their Best Doctors Issue of February 2015. All our facial services at Dr. Peled’s location are provided by our owner and senior esthetician Bianca de Jong.

Skin care products

For our San Francisco services we choose to only work with Pevonia’s powerhouse skin care products, such as our Stem Cell line, Micro Retinol Line, Caviar & Pearl Line, and Rosacea Line combined with high performing anti-aging and calming serums. Our skin resurfacers are formulated by skin script and deliver outstanding results. We don’t compromise protecting your skin. We only top off your facial treatment with the SPF 50 Mineral sun protection or SPF 50 Pigment corrector of Colorscience. All Pevonia and Colorescience skin care products with the exception of our skin resurfacers are available for purchase.

Facial therapy

Personalized program for face & neck

Your skin condition changes with the change of each season, or can change under the influence of stress or medication. Bianca customizes each treatment for each individual visit. Her specialties are aging skin, adult acne, teen acne, sensitive skin and rosacea. Depending on your skin type each facial contains appropriate skin resurfacers (peels), includes signature extractions, works on blood circulation, improves the lymph flow, gives detailed attention to the eye and neck area, and uses a variety of serums to improve your overall skin condition. $235, 75 min.

How many treatments do you need?

Maintaining or recovering a youthful appearance regardless your age and improving a blemished skin or calming sensitivity, such as rosacea and dermatitis, requires commitment. Monthly, bi-weekly or even weekly facials may be necessary to get a certain skin problem under control. The daily use of an SPF 30 sunblock and high-quality skin care products are needed to maintain your improved skin.

Diamond Dermal peel

Using the latest technology in dermabrasion, the Diamond Dermal Peel polishes the skin and removes dead cells from the face and neck area, which are then vacuumed off the skin. The primary difference between the regular microdermabrasion and the newer diamond dermal peel is that the diamond dermal peel removes the top layer of the skin without the use of abrasive crystals. This newer type of dermabrasion prevents crystal inhaling by the client during the service. The crystal free diamond dermal peel yields better results and has much less recovery time. This treatment revitalizes dull skin, controls acne, refines enlarged pores, diminishes discoloration and improves the overall health of your skin. $200, 50 min.

Contra indication

Microdermabrasion cannot be done if you currently use Accutane or have used it in the past 3 months, have an active herpes infection, have been diagnosed with malignant skin tumors, have dermatitis,  or have inflamed rosacea or acne with open acne lesions. For women that are pregnant and have developed a pregnancy mask (hyperpigmentation) it is better to wait 6 months after giving birth. Please be aware that micodremabrasion treatments may lighten the pigment of tattoos.

How many treatments do you need?

A normal course of treatments varies between 6 to 12 treatments with approximately a 2  to 3 weeks interval. We recommend you schedule an additional treatment every 1 to 3 months to maintain your skin's condition. Daily use of SPF 50 sunblock and high-quality skin care products are necessary to maintain your improved skin. Be advised raised or deeply pitted skin areas (possibly from old severe acne scars) and darker pigmented areas will require multiple treatments.

Package of 3, $550

Can you add the Diamond Dermal Peel to your customized facial program?

You can add the Diamond Dermal Peel to your customized facial program for optimal results. We will then replace your skin resurfacer with our Diamond Dermal Peel for a much deeper exfoliation. Please note the duration of your customized facial program extends with an additional 30 minutes. An additional charge of $100 will be applied.

Hair removal

Finding your wax expert in a city as large as San Francisco can be like searching for a needle in a haystack! With her 2 decades of wax experience Bianca has performed over 5,000 Brazilians and full body waxes. Her precise work and wax speed is highly appreciated by her clients.

For our facial and body hair removal services we work with the gentlest Italian wax depilatory available. A silky after-wax application will calm and hydrate your skin.

Waxing cannot be done if you are taking or have recently taken any prescription skin care drugs, such as Accutane, Retin A, Renova, or a topical Cortisone cream. If your skincare regime contains vitamin C, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, we advice you to stop using these products 4 days before your waxing since long term use of these products might eventually cause skin to lift during your waxing service.

Please do not take any Advil or Ibuprofen prior to your waxing since this can increase the chance of bruising.
