Heyday offers facial skin treatments ranging between 30 minutes and 75 minutes and the Bethesda location will have 11 treatment rooms and a shopping area with skincare products at the front of the store.
Treatments are personalized for each customer and can be “upgraded” to include exfoliation and beard care, according to the company’s website.
Membership plans will also be offered for discounted monthly facials and products and access to member-only events.
The location will be Heyday’s first foray into Montgomery County. Other locations are in New York, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
