Love Your Skin! The Benefits of Facials

Facials are more than a relaxing way to pamper yourself! With regular treatments you'll notice your skin changing, both in texture and appearance. Facial treatments help maintain the health of skin and even correct certain skin conditions. A facial in a spa setting provides deep cleansing, a calming massage, an invigorating mask and other treatments to help improve your skin. 

A facial treatment includes the following benefits:

  • Deep cleansing, washing away debri. 
  • Exfoliation, making the skin smoother and allowing product penetration by unblocking the skin surface. Also stimulates the skin, which increases cell turnover rate.
  • Increases circulation, stimulates metabolism and other skin function.
  • Detoxifies and draws out impurities using masks and other treatments.
  • Relaxing to the senses, nerves and muscles.
  • Stalls premature aging and softens the look of wrinkles.
  • Treats conditions like dryness, oiliness and redness by using products tailored to your needs.
  • Helps clear minor acne and other blemishes.

Pamper yourself with a facial while improving and rejuvenating your skin! Schedule a facial at any of our Northwest College locations. Prices start at just $20!

Travis Henry, @bigTtheBarber, Class of 2011

I entered Beauty School not sure what to expect and with no prior cutting/barbering experience. I did research on a few local Beauty Schools and went with what felt right for my family and the locations that worked for me. The campuses were beautiful, the staff was awesome, and there was a variety of different students. Beauty school is what you make of it. It's the school's responsibility to teach you the rules, help you achieve greatness, and give you the tools you need to succeed in this profession. Northwest College did that for me. This business is 75% Passion and 25% skills, NW College can get you those skills if your willing to do your part. I graduated in March of 2011; I'm now a Certified Educator for Eufora International, Owner of Chop Shop Hair Studio, Co-Owner of  Doo or Dye Salon, President of the North West Barbers Alliance, and Business Partners with Shave Envy. You can achieve anything you want with the right training, support, and a passion.” - Travis Henry, Class of 2011

Jessica Koch, Class of 2014

I was very scared going back to school after nearly 20 years, but attending NW College in Tualatin made it an easy transition. I had no idea what to expect from beauty school or if I was making the right career move, but in no time at all I knew NW College was the right decision for me. I had amazing instructors that were encouraging and pushed me to trust in myself and my creative abilities. I graduated on November 22, 2014 and because of the great academics of NW College passed my state boards and became licensed on November 26, 2014. I had interviewed with several salons leading up to my graduation and started working immediately as an independent contractor on December 2, 2014.. Attending NW College was the best decision of my life, I’ve never been happier going to work each day. I LOVE my career choice as a licensed Cosmetologist.” - Jessica Koch, Class of 2014
