There are a lot of factors that go into making a facial great and the criteria is different for everyone. It may be value – biggest bang for your buck; or environment – you want a total spa experience; or advice – you really just want someone to get your skin back on track; or results — you have some money to spend, a couple of hours to spare and you want some quick, noticeable results. Or perhaps you want a doctor on the premises in addition to a great facial. No matter what your needs — or wants — may be, there are plenty of skin-care places in town, so we used our own SB Guide to scout out the best. And while there are more aggressive skin-care treatments available, we’re highlighting ones that will allow you to go to dinner that night, or simply have a few days of light peeling following the procedure.

Here at StyleBlueprint, we make sure to partner with the best businesses and showcase them in our SB Guide. Below is a list of the best facials in Nashville from our SB Guide.
4525 Harding Pike, Suite 104, Nashville 37205 • (615) 297-0087
Intensive and amazing, this facial promises to loosen pores and refine the skin’s texture, while deeply hydrating your skin and lifting facial muscles all at once. You’ll receive a gentle exfoliation followed by a steam treatment and extractions with a lifting ampoule massaged into your skin. Finish with a lifting mask, which leaves you with beautiful, soft skin that is visibly tightened right away.
4322 Harding Pike, Suite 329, Nashville, TN 37205 • (615) 630-6969
At Woods Aesthetics, Valerie will work with you and your skin to create a custom facial that is specific to your needs. She uses steam, aromatherapy and specialized products to make your experience both enjoyable and incredibly effective. Dermaplaning, peels, waxing and tinting can be added to any facial to enhance your results.
4230 Harding Rd., Suite 400, Nashville 37205 • (615) 512-1481
One of our favorite secrets for great skin, introduced to us first by FRC, is dermaplaning. It is safely performed using a number 10 blade, which is a sterile surgical blade. Yep, it’s basically like a luxurious, fabulous shave, but don’t worry! It is impossible for your vellus hairs (all that peach fuzz) to grow back thicker. Dermaplaning takes off two to three weeks of dead skin, and you’ll notice an immediate difference! It will help products penetrate your skin more easily, and your makeup will set more evenly. If you’re wanting an even more intense treatment a peel loaded with antioxidants and nutrients. FRC is located in the offices of Dr. Mark Houston.
4009 Hillsboro Pike, Suite 101, Nashville 37215 • (615) 292-8606

807 Clark Place, Nashville TN 37203 • (629) 800-5050
Rhapsody Spa Director Rhonda Davis suggests investing in your skin with a good night treatment, exfoliant and monthly facials. The experienced estheticians at Rhapsody Spa can help you select the products that are right for your skin type. The Revitalizing Facial instantly minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll leave with youth-infused skin with diminished pigmentation, redness and large pores.
2225 Bandywood Dr., Suite 3, Nashville 37215 • (615) 891-2881

155 Covey Drive #200, Franklin, TN 37067 • (615) 835-3220
Give your skin the attention it deserves with a skin analysis, deep cleansing, exfoliation and mask. The treatment includes aromatherapy and a relaxing, detoxifying massage for the face, neck, décolleté, hands and arms. This facial will bring a new glow to your skin and leave you feeling soothed, refreshed and renewed. The luxurious experience is individually tailored to your skin’s needs, and you can add on chemical peels accordingly.
2154 Bandywood Dr., Nashville 37215 • (615) 383-2170
No, the HydraFacial is not the enemy facial of the Agents of Shield (nerd humor … stay with me!). The HydraFacial, the newest facial at WOO, is also the newest nonlaser resurfacing treatment that we know of. It’s good for hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as oily, congested skin or skin with enlarged pores. The HydraFacial cleanses, exfoliates and extracts buildup. Afterward, a mild acid peel and a collagen-boosting serum filled with antioxidants are applied. This facial is reparative and replenishes skin’s hydration. The best part is that there is no downtime, and you will immediately notice softer, dewy skin. Expect skin to continue to improve over the following few days.
6000 Hwy. 100, Nashville 37205 • (615) 352-3545
“Organic” can sometimes mean “natural but no results,” but that’s definitely NOT the case with this amazing facial at ESCAPE. Known for providing luxury experiences, ESCAPE pampers guests with effective and potent organic ingredients from Naturopathica (which mean “to heal with natural therapies”). Expect all the steps of a standard facial, but with products like goji berries for firming and ginseng to protect from free radicals. Additionally, a high-performance enzyme peel promises to repair broken-down skin and provide ample hydration. Your skin will love you for this one, and it will show in the results!

545 Cool Springs Blvd., Suite 158, Franklin, TN, 37067 • (615) 778-9115

At Cosmetic Market, you’ll find a wide range of options when it comes to facials. From Therapy Systems to Caudalie to SkinCeuticals to Tata Harper – they’ve got it all. We love the Therapy Systems Facial because it addresses many skin concerns, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture and includes a glycolic peel to promote skin brightening and an even skin tone!
4322 Harding Pike, Suite 329, Nashville 37205 • (615) 630-6969
Formerly Zap Laser & Aesthetic, Woods Aesthetics provides facials that are medical in nature, yet still relaxing and customized to each client. It includes a custom skin analysis, followed by a deep steam cleanse with your choice of aromatherapy-scented steam towels, exfoliation and masque treatment. For total relaxation, you’ll also receive a face and décolleté massage, as well as your choice of a hand and foot or a scalp massage. And Woods Aesthetics does not accept gratuity so that sometimes-awkward elephant is out of the room allowing for total ahhhhh.
