Skincare is so important and if you know me you know I can't stress this enough.Your skin is the first impression you give, therefore it is important to take great care of it!
Routine facials are good for the overall health of your skin and it's barrier. I try to get a facial every 4-6 weeks. I always tell people that your skin and your hair should be something you invest in and take pride in. This is the one area of your body and skin that is almost always exposed to the outside elements including wind, sun, and cold. In order to keep your skin and it's appearance young, supple and hydrated you have to take consistent care of it. Our 'Basic Facial' at Kara Macs is one way to do so.
During the 'Basic Facial', my esthetician Morgan goes over a skin evaluation with you and you can express all of your skin concerns. She will recommend different add-ons and solutions to apply during your facial to help address your concerns. Then she will perform a series of a deep cleanse, steam, extractions, mask, hand/foot massage, toner, exfoliation, serum, moisturizer + SPF application. Lastly with this specific facial you will have a choice of 1 add on service. Your choices are: Dermaplaning, Ultrasonic Treatment, High Frequency, LED light therapy, 24 Karat Gold, or Dermaroller. (One add-on is included in the service but you can add on others as an upcharge!)
I personally love to rotate through all of our add on's each time I get a facial. I listed below a few of my favorite add on's in hopes to give you a better idea of what they are!
This is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and peach fuzz in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
High Frequency Treatment
This is a treatment used to help treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, decongest puffy eyes and fade dark eye circles.
[cannot receive this service if pregnant epileptic or have a pace maker]
This treatment is based on high frequency mechanical vibrations produced by a metal spatula-like tool. It is used to firm the skin and reduce wrinkles while the vibrations help to cleanse and exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells and accelerating skin metabolism.

LED light therapy A personal fav! Light therapy is a device used to reduce acne, increase the skins blood circulation, and improve the collagen content in the skin.
RED light - increases cellular process, boosts collagen and elastin, stimulates wound healing. YELLOW light - reduces inflammation, improves lymphatic flow, detoxifies and increases circulation. GREEN light - lessons hyperpigmentation, reduces redness, calms and soothes BLUE light - improves acne, reduces bacteria
I am always receiving questions from clients, friends and family on my skincare routine and treatments I receive! I hope this helped you guys and gives you some insight on how to better care for your skin. Always feel free to give the salon a call or message me with any of your facial/skincare questions!
