Giving Thanks for You!

November 24th, 2014

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.

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.

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?

  • Refreshing your skin

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.

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.

Oh So a-Peel-ing

October 6th, 2014

Oh So a-Peel-ing

There are so many questions out there about peels. The most common ones seem to be whether a person’s face will stay red and raw looking for a long time and whether the procedure is painful.

Here we hope to demystify the facial peel.

WebMD.com explains when you get a facial peel, “a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it blister and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.”

At FACES Day Spa, you have three different options for a peel: The Lactic Peel, the AHA (Alpha Hydroxy) Peel or the Glycolic Peel. The one you choose is entirely up to you.

The Lactic Peel – A gentle chemical peel that targets stubborn pigmentation while smoothing the texture of your skin.

The Alpha Hydroxy Peel – This peel uses fruit acids to gently peel away signs of aging while increasing your skin’s ability to hydrate.

The Glycolic Peel – This advanced chemical peel is geared toward those who want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars and acne.

If you’ve been thinking about getting a peel but remain on the fence, consider these top three benefits of getting a peel:

-Younger, smoother looking skin

-Reduces and in some cases eliminates wrinkles and age spots

-Treats acne and improves the appearance of scars

As Zhannon, a FACES esthetician says, “When you get a peel, you’re just going to get a gentle exfoliation and your skin will be brighter with a more even skin tone.”

What Makes a Spa a Spa?

September 29th, 2014

Turns out it’s the water component. Though FACES has been around for over a decade, the spa itself enjoys a much longer history.

According to indiawellness.org, spas can be traced as far back as 400 BC.

As a physician, it was Hippocrates’ opinion (yes the Hippocrates – the one whom the Hippocratic Oath was named after) that people became afflicted with diseases when their bodily fluids were not in balance. To fix this issue, he recommended people make some simple changes to their daily routines.

Indiawellness.org suggests these included:

  • Bathing
  • Perspiration
  • Walking
  • Massage

Many years ago, these were combined with physical and educational activities to maximize results.

Later on, the Greeks and Romans embraced mineral and thermal springs for use by their citizens. And the idea of using public baths or spas as part of a wellness regimen quickly took spread.

The city of Bath became extremely popular. Located in England, visitbath.co.uk says for centuries ill visitors made their way to the city from all around the country to bathe in the therapeutic waters. The hope was that they would wash away their health problems.

Nowadays, people use the baths in Bath for their relaxing properties rather than their medicinal ones. And relaxation is the primary reason people head to the spa itself!

If you need a little relaxation or rejuvenation, you too can enjoy the spa – no toga required! Make your appointment at FACES today, 402.384.8400.

Getting Fit While Feeling Fabulous

September 22nd, 2014

This may come as a bit of a shock, but just driving by the gym does not constitute a workout.

There are those who love working out, who are proud to sweat and enjoy heart pumping activity on a regular basis.

And then there is everyone else.

Whether you make time to work out or not, you still want to look your best, right? One way to do that is by working your skin out. The biggest upside to FACES’ Firming Sea Weed Body Treatment is in that first word: firming.

It’s not every day we are able to do absolutely nothing except relax and walk away from a service fitter than when we entered the spa.

By now, you may be thinking, “So, just how does this service work? What is it?”

It’s called the Firming Sea Weed Body Treatment. It’s a wrap that will “leave your skin feeling toned and smooth.”

The service itself involves the use of a firming cream that is spread over the entire body.

Why use seaweed? Livestrong.com says seaweed is:

  • Great for cleansing of dead skin cells and many other impurities that sit on the surface of the skin.
  • Full of iodine which serves to stimulate and helps renew skin.
  • Chock-full of vitamins, making it a natural anti-inflammatory.

At the end of FACES’ Sea Weed Body Treatment, skin is moisturized with creams that are rich in nutritive elements.

Your skin is softer, smoother and more toned – no exercise required.

Leave your gym clothes at home and call FACES today: 402.384.8400.
