I recently had the pleasure of visiting Burke Williams Spa in Sherman Oaks, for a much needed facial. It was pampering, detoxifying and rejuvenating!
I have been going to Burke Williams Spa’s for most of my adult life and I have definitely RAVED about Burke Williams many times before. Burke Williams is a long standing, well-known and much lauded local spa company based in Southern California. For many of my friends, it was among the first spas that we ever visited when we began our spa-going experiences many years ago. The good news is that not only does Burke Williams have longevity, but thankfully they have also continually updated, upgraded and refreshed their facilities and treatments in order to stay relevant and competitive on the SoCal spa landscape. The fact that this is a brand that I have grown-up with, that it’s hyper local and that they continue to remain at the top of the their game keeps me coming back for more.
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited in to their Sherman Oaks Location for a much needed facial. Since turning 50, I have been experiencing more congestion around my chin area which is caused by fluctuating hormones and therefore I need to get regular deep cleansing and detoxifying facials with thorough extractions for my skin to look its best. For this reason, I was excited to try the Spa Style Facial in order to purge my skin of toxins and get it back in balance.
The Spa Style Facial is a Burke Williams classic. What makes this facial so wonderful is that is personalized to address the current needs of your skin with customized cleansing, extractions, exfoliation and a mask. What makes all of Burke Williams facials extra special are the additional pampering touches that you don’t typically find offered at other facilities around town. Their facials all include their signature 22-point acupressure facial massage that has been used for over 25 years along with a hydrating warm paraffin treatment for your hands and a foot massage while your mask does its magic.
My recent Spa Style Facial was fabulous! Being a seasoned spa-goer, I requested a senior/highly experienced aesthetician to do my treatment because for me that makes all the difference in the world. After my seasoned aesthetician carefully analyzed my skin, she agreed that my skin was in need of a deep exfoliation and a detox. So she decided to do an powerful pumpkin peel (smells heavenly and packs a punch) followed by thorough extractions and then a calming mask. I loved the zing of the peel because I could feel it working to remove my unwanted skin, her extractions were gentle yet comprehensive and the icing on the cake was the pampering acupressure massage on my face, the paraffin hand treatment and a lovely foot massage. This extra bit of luxurious pampering paired with a top notch facial is was sets a Burke Williams facial apart from all the rest and I just LOVE it!
After my divine facial, I took some much needed time to unwind and enjoy Burke Williams Sherman Oaks super relaxing spa facilities. I basked in the Jacuzzi, I cooled down in the adjacent Cool Mist Spa and then I spent some serene time totally decompressing in their Quiet Room. After just a few short hours in this urban oasis, my skin was radiant and glowing and I felt rejuvenated and relaxed. The peel and extractions were just what I needed to reset my skin and the results of this detoxifying customized facial lasted for weeks. I can’t wait to go back!
