Oasis Face Bar is hoping to deliver quality facial products and treatments to Worthington patrons who don't have time for a full spa day.

It's among the newest business in Old Worthington along the High Street corridor.

Replacing Speckled Hen Market at 667 N. High St. in Worthington, Oasis founder Molly Bower, a Lewis Center resident, said her company took possession of the space in September and renovated it for a month before opening Nov. 3.

Lee Brown, director of planning and building for Worthington, said he could not give an exact date for when Speckled Hen Market closed, but several months have passed.

Annina Parini, executive director of the Old Worthington Partnership, said her organization is excited Oasis has opened.

"We're thrilled that they took over the space," she said. "It should be a destination business, which is really great, and (it) will be something else quick and easy that people can go do while they're in Worthington."

The location is the third for Oasis and the second in central Ohio. The facial spa has locations in downtown Columbus, 20 E. Gay St., and a location in Cincinnati, 1345 Walnut St.

Bower also had a location in Powell at 50 S. Liberty St. but decided to relocate to Worthington.

"When we were in Powell, we were within a salon and noticed that clients had a hard time finding us – the space was a lot smaller," she said. "We stumbled upon this space and it seemed to be a better fit for us."

Ashley Landers, manager of the new High Street location and a Worthington resident, said the move closer to home was a perfect fit.

"I love Worthington," Landers said. "My children go to school in Worthington, so it was just kind of no-brainer."

Landers and Bower said Oasis offers 30-minute spa treatments in an open concept, and they are intended to give the same results as a full spa facial.

Prices are $49 for a targeted treatment that focuses on one of six areas: sculpting, soothing, clearing, enlightening and smooth, as well as a treatment for men's faces.

Bower and Landers said that additional customization services are offered for $10, including dermaplaning, an exfoliation and hair treatment, extractions of pores, blue- and red-light therapy, LEDs that are used to fight inflammation, acne and stimulate collagen production, facial contouring and a special treatment that changes monthly.

Landers and Bower said the spa also offers retail products under its house brand.

Bower said most of the products for sale are all natural and used in clients' services to give them a chance to experience them.

Landers said Oasis locations sell products from Cannuka, an Ohio-based company that sells cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in hemp, and Manuka honey-based facial products.

The two ingredients are said to help reduce inflammation, soothe skin and relieves dryness.

Landers said Oasis offers memberships at $42 per month for one facial treatment a month, with 10% off retail products, a complimentary brow tweeze and tint and 10% off additional services.

She said a second membership is offered for $80 per month, and patrons will receive two targeted facial treatments and a free brow wax in addition to the other services.

Landers said rotating specials typically are promoted on the business' Instagram page, @oasisfacebarworthington. For information, go to oasisfacebar.com.
