Happy Holidays

December 15th, 2014

For it is in giving that we receive – St. Francis of Assisi

It’s always better to give than receive and it’s always amazing just how good that giving can feel.

Perhaps your list seems to get longer each year. There are so many people to buy gifts for and it can seem like a huge task to get those names checked off your list.

Let FACES Day Spa help you out this holiday season. Instead of giving a gift that may not fit or might not get used as much as you would like, how about gifting your loved ones with a relaxing or refreshing experience?

According to an article from PsychologyToday.com, “When you purchase an experience, chances are you are going to share that experience with at least one other person. Participants in a recent study rated themselves as happier at the time of purchase when they bought an experience rather than when they bought a material possession.”

Here we offer a list of experiences you can offer for everyone on your list.

For your mom, sister or aunt… how about a relaxing pedicure?

FACES has pedicures that feature the soothing benefits of milk and honey, almond and paraffin, citrus and green tea.

For your best friend…how about a day at the spa?

FACES offers spa packages that include a variety of massages, pedicures, facials and manicures. Want to make that gift even more special? Make plans to join your friend at the spa and spend the day being pampered together from head to toe.

For the special “handy” man in your life… how about a massage?

FACES’ massage options include deep tissue, Swedish and hot stone. Or come on in with your special someone and enjoy a couples’ massage.

Can’t decide? We offer gift cards so you can let your loved one decide what they want.

If you haven’t started shopping yet, there’s no need to worry, FACES Day Spa is ready to help you. To purchase services or gift cards, call FACES Day Spa at 402.384.8400.

Lost and Found Day

December 8th, 2014

This Friday is Lost and Found Day. This day is about more than locating that left-handed glove you lost in the snow somewhere in the yard or the keys that mysteriously vanished 10 minutes before you had to leave for work.

This is about those intangible things you might have “lost” and what you can do to “find” them again.

In honor of the holiday, we are offering you a great way to celebrate by making your appointment with FACES Day Spa. What service you decide to choose may largely depend on just what you’ve “lost.”

If you feel like you’ve lost:

Your sanity

Think about a hot stone massage. As we head into winter, these massages are a fabulous way to stay toasty but also help you get centered.

Your warm glow

Indulge in an Exfoliating Lime Salt Glow. Sea salt and essential oils are mixed together to simultaneously remove impurities and trigger cell regeneration.

Your patience

Enjoy a relaxing Guinot Aromatics facial. These services are customized with your own personal essential oils.

Your energy

Pamper yourself with a Green Tea and Citrus manicure. Getting a whiff of citrus is enough to re-energize you and your senses. Coupled with an invigorating hand massage, this manicure is the perfect treat for waking up your senses.

“Lost” in the chaos of the season? “Find” yourself at FACES Day Spa! Call and make your appointment today, 402.384.8400.

Making Manicures Last

December 1st, 2014

We’ve all been there. We finally have time to sit down and get our ragged cuticles trimmed and moisturized and our fingernails shaped and painted. It feels great and it looks great, and we walk out of the spa with our heads held high, feeling good.

Fast forward 20 minutes when we are digging through our purse for car keys and we pull our hands back out only to notice we’ve already chipped that beautiful, shiny red color we just had applied. Disaster!

Today we offer you some great ideas to extend the life of your manicure. These are all courtesy of our talented, professional staff at FACES Day Spa.

Ways to extend the life of your manicure

  • In between manicures, be sure to keep your cuticles pushed back.
  • Apply extra top coats on nails between visits to extend the life of your manicure.
  • Natural manicures need to be done every week. Those who opt for gel polish manicures can wait two weeks in between services.
  • Use cuticle oil to keep your nails hydrated and looking nice.

What to do right before your manicure appointment

  1. Be on time.
  2. Turn off your phone.
  3. Pre-pay so you don’t have to do so with wet nails afterward.
  4. Choose your color.
  5. Use the restroom.

And if you’re someone who just can’t keep color on their nails for more than a day, consider getting a gel manicure. During the polishing process, the stylist applies a base coat, followed by two coats of gel polish and finally a topcoat.

In between each application, hands are dried under an LED light somewhere between 30 seconds and a minute each time. Once the topcoat is dry, your nails are fully set and you are ready to go.

Now you CAN have a great manicure and enjoy it for more than a day!

Call FACES to set up your manicure today, 402.384.8400.

Giving Thanks for You!

I have a lot to be thankful for. I am healthy, happy and I am loved” – Reba McEntire

This is the time of year when we all think about what we are thankful for, whether it’s family or friends, having a good job or a fun hobby, the chance to take a fun vacation or relax with a good book.

Here at FACES Day Spa we are most thankful for YOU our wonderful clients and our talented and professional staff.

Any business is only as strong as the employees who work there.

At FACES, our staff loves their work and takes pride in what they do.

“It’s a relaxing atmosphere where we try to do what’s best for the client to keep them coming back” – Amber Wright, Massage Therapist

“Everybody is very professional here and is very specialized at what they do” – Rachal Prout, Nail Technician

“I love the calm atmosphere and my co-workers are like a family” – Carmen Becker, Esthetician

“You can depend on always getting a good service. It’s always a calm environment” – Kate Lewis, Massage Therapist

Meet Sherri Prochazka…

Sherry is a licensed esthetician with nine years in the industry. She has been at FACES for almost two years.

“I knew I could refine what I do at FACES. It was just a better fit for me to learn,” said Sherry.

Facials, waxing and microdermabrasion are the primary services Sherry offers throughout the week. She specializes in anti-aging driven services given that most of her clients are middle aged.

Instant Results

She said she loves microdermabrasion the best. “It’s great because of the instant results and the cumulative results. The more you do it, the better it is. You can see a huge change in someone’s skin when you do a series of treatments,” said Sherry.

Clients enjoy going to Sherry because she is knowledgeable and tells them exactly what they need. When booking a facial at FACES, you are booked for a European facial and then talk to your esthetician about whatever issues you are having with your skin at that time. The esthetician will then recommend the best service for you.

“I will look at their skin and give them a couple of options at the time,” said Sherry.

Sherry’s Skin Tip

Her top tip for keeping skin in the best condition possible is to exfoliate. She said it’s important because skin doesn’t turn over as fast when you get older as it did when you were a teenager. It’s important to keep the dead skin off that surface and hydrate.

Sherry said the staff at FACES believe in continuing education and keeping up with the latest information.

“I am very personable and believe in what I do. I love the women I work with. We each help each other build our own clientele, and everyone is professional,” Sherry said.

You can schedule your appointment with Sherry by calling FACES at 402.384.8400.

All month we are thanking our wonderful staff

Meet Josie Rust…

“I like meeting new people and being able to help them,” said Josie Rust, Licensed Massage Therapist at FACES.

Josie has been a massage therapist for four years and has worked at FACES for the last two.

She said she initially wanted to be a nurse but couldn’t handle the blood or needles, so massage is perfect because she doesn’t have to deal with those things but still gets to help people.

Her favorite massages to do are the Swedish and Deep Tissue because she feels like people really like these.

It’s all about teamwork at FACES and that’s one of the things Josie loves best about her work. She said everyone she works with is great.

Why do Josie’s clients like going to her?

“I am friendly and connect with people on a personal level while still remaining professional,” she said.

For her part, Josie hopes she helps people with their aches and pains and that her clients feel comfortable around her.

Most common question

Josie explained a lot of people don’t understand where knots come from or what they are, so she tells her clients what can be done to help get rid of them and how to take care of their body properly.

Prior to a massage, Josie said she takes a few moments to talk to her clients, many of who are frazzled when they come in after work. She has them turn off their cell phones and relax for a few moments before beginning their massage.

“Afterward, I make sure they drink plenty of water and then go over what patterns they are engaged in that are causing stress to their bodies. I show them how to break those patterns,” said Josie.

To set up your next massage with Josie, call FACES at 402.384.8400.

This month we are so thankful for our staff that we are highlighting them all month long!

Meet Lori Cooper…

Lori Cooper started working at FACES in 2010. She worked at the front desk one day a week until 2012 when she began as an esthetician.

After graduating college, Lori spent a lot of her time on the Internet researching skin care and ways to make her skin healthier. She said as a result, skin care became a passion for her and she decided to go to school for it.

Artistic Work

She loves working at FACES because of the great clients and the opportunities to be creative, particularly when she does brow waxes.

“With waxing I can use my artistic side. But I also enjoy doing facials because I get to see improvements in people’s skin immediately and help them be healthier across the board,” Lori said.

She thinks clients enjoy coming to FACES because of the high level of service and because the staff truly enjoy their work and are happy to be there.

Caring for Clients

So what do Lori’s clients like best about coming to see her?

She said hopefully her clients leave feeling better about themselves. Loris said she cares a lot about the people that are coming to her.

“I try to make them feel special while they are here. When they leave I hope they feel like I made their day,” said Lori.

Some of the most common questions she gets about skin care include what people can do to prevent breakouts, how they can keep their skin healthy and the best ways to prevent wrinkles and aging.

Lori said her top tip to address these issues is to always use professional products.

“I’ve used all the drugstore products and always had problem skin. When I went to skin school, I started using professional care. If you use professional skin care, you can slow the aging of your skin. I look the same as I did 10 years ago,” explained Lori.

Her superstar products are both available at FACES: GlyMed’s Vitamin C Cleanser. Lori said her skin is super soft after she cleanses with it. She follows that with toner and then Guinot’s 777 lifting and firming cream moisturizer.

“The cream has hyaluronic acid in it which binds the moisturizer to skin, so it absorbs nicely and doesn’t feel tacky,” Lori said.

To book a facial or eyebrow wax with Lori, contact FACES at 402.384.8400.

Boo to You!!

October 27th, 2014

It’s that time of the year again! Get ready for trick-or-treating and TV specials featuring “The Great Pumpkin.”

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

This is that fun time of year where kids dress up and go door to door asking for candy and other treats.

According to HalloweenHistory.org, Halloween stems from a Celtic festival that was held in the past to celebrate the end of the harvest season.

Just because you’re a grown up now doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the Halloween fun! You don’t have to wear a mask or a costume or even eat a ton of candy to celebrate.

Here are some ideas for enjoying the holiday without gaining a cavity or extra weight:

Have your nails painted orange and black. You can get what’s known as an “accent nail” manicure, where one nail is painted black and the rest orange or vice versa.

Enjoy a yummy pumpkin facial. No, you don’t eat it. But the enzymes from the pumpkin help get rid of dry skin, leaving you feeling refreshed.

Have a stone massage. The black basalt stones are heated up before being placed on your knotted up and tightened muscles. Once your muscles have started to relax a bit, that’s when your massage therapist digs in. This is truly a treat!

Take pleasure in a sweet smelling service with the Milk and Honey body treatment. A decadent mixture of milk, honey and essential oils are applied to skin after exfoliation to leave you feeling hydrated all day.

Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title. ~ From Scooby-Doo

Set up your treat with FACES today at 402.384.8400.

 

Spa Week!

October 20th, 2014

This week is Spa Week. What better way to celebrate than by visiting FACES to try something brand new or enjoy an old favorite?

You already know that going to the spa has tons of benefits including:

  • Refreshing your skin
  • Relaxing your body
  • Renewing your spirit
  • Rejuvenating your attitude

And what better time to go than during Spa Week?

Take some time for yourself and schedule a mani/pedi on your day off. FACES is open every day of the week so there is always an opportunity to make time for the spa.

Need a pick-me-up during your workday? Not a problem. Even those with just half an hour can enjoy a mini vitamin C facial, have a make-up application, get those eyebrows tinted or get a massage.

If you want to go all out in honor of Spa Week, you could enjoy a half-day or full day at the spa with one of several different spa packages.

Express Packages are great for those on the go. You’re covered from head to toe with a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage – all in two hours!

A Day of Pampering

Or if you want to spend the day at FACES, there’s always the Pampering Spa Package. Have a friend or family member drop you off and enjoy a manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, body treatment, makeup application and lunch!

Just remember, during Spa Week, it’s our celebration but YOU are the guest of honor.

Make your appointment today by calling FACES at 402.384.8400.

In Your Element

October 13th, 2014

Do you know the four elements? They are Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Every individual has all four elements hidden within and around them.

Each element represents something very specific for each of us.

Fire = “Your personal drive”

Water = “Your personal flow”

Earth = “Your physical environment”

Air = “Your inspiration and creativity”

Some of us may be tapped into one element more than another but they are each present every day.

Ancient Ideas

And this isn’t a contemporary notion. The ancient Greeks originally conceived the idea that everything is made up of these four elements.

“The idea that these four elements – earth, water, air, and fire – made up all matter was the cornerstone of philosophy, science, and medicine for two thousand years,” according to hometrainingtools.com.

And that idea actually extends into FACES Day Spa as well. If you want to, you can experience one or more of the basic elements during a service at the spa.

Hot Stone Massage (Fire) – This massage is relaxing from beginning to end as warmed stones are first placed on the muscles to help them loosen up before the massage therapist begins.

FACES Pedicure (Water) – The spa’s luxurious pedicures begin with a refreshing foot soak in warm, bubbling water.

Black Baltic Body Mud Treatment (Earth) – Detoxify and rejuvenate your skin with this rich, tranquil service.

Guinot Hydradermie (Air) – This facial targets problem areas through the use of oxygenation and electrical current and offers deep hydration and brightening of the skin.

Get in touch with the four elements today at FACES Day Spa. Call 402.384.8400 to make your appointment.
