Faces, Etc. MediSpa and Wellness Center has the tools to enhance and perfect beauty for every season of life. 

Palomar Medilux

Faces, Etc. is proud to introduce their new, top of the line IPL (intense pulse light) machine: The Palomar Medilux. 

This high-technology machine offers more diversity as it addresses skin problems for women of all ethnicities. The three different hand pieces on the machine focus on different needs. 

One hand piece controls skin conditions such as acne, redness, rosacea, and facial spider veins.  Another hand piece safely and precisely removes unwanted body hair from all skin colors. Specifically-filtered pulsed light destroys cells that grow new hair, while contact cooling ensures patient comfort and safety.

The third hand piece addresses the issue of evening out skin tones for all women.  The Palomar Medilux produces superior results that will surely please any client.  The Medilux is now available, and the Faces, etc. staff looks forward to servicing a wider variety of skin types.

Look your best

Another new offer at Faces, Etc. is the Bleach Bright, a professional cosmetic tooth whitening service.

This system uses cold-light technology and a concentrated beam of high-intensity blue light to accelerate the whitening process. Bleach Bright’s specially formulated gel works to whiten teeth one to five shades whiter, restoring them to a shiny white. 

Permanent makeup 

Faces, Etc. has permanent makeup for women who balance a hectic schedule but want to look their best all the time. Permanent cosmetic procedures include eyebrows, eyeliner and lash enhancement, lip liner and full lip color. The makeup is applied by a manual method of cosmetic tattooing called SofTap.

 Owner Carol Smith is a permanent make-up consultant, and Mechelle Martinez-Diaz is a certified permanent makeup artist. Smith’s daughter, Amber Marquis, is a permanent makeup artist and a certified makeup instructor. 

Jennifer Rivas is the newest addition to the Faces, Etc. family and a permanent makeup graduate from Faces, Etc. She looks forward to helping her clients look and feel their best with permanent cosmetic makeup. Additionally, Jennifer is a professional airbrush makeup artist. We welcome Jennifer to Faces, Etc!

Blinc Mascara

If you’re looking for no-hassle, no-smudge mascara that you can wear throughout the day with no re-application, Blinc mascara is your answer! Instead of painting your lashes like conventional mascara, Blinc mascara forms tiny no-smudge, water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes. Once applied, these mascara tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump or flake even if you rub your eyes!

When you want to remove, all it takes is the combination of warm water and gentle pressure and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly! Upon removal you will actually see the tiny mascara tubes in your hand. Blinc is great for sensitive eyes, and has been tested for contact lens wearers and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.

You can also use Blinc mascara on fake lashes and eye lash extensions, since it doesn’t require makeup remover (which can reduce the longevity of the adhesives used). 

Blinc also has an innovative water resistant, no-smudge eyeliner. The intense layer of color creates a dramatic, vibrant look that lasts all day! When you are ready to remove it, the color will effortlessly slide off your skin without the use of any harsh makeup removers! Waterproof brands can’t say that, can they?

Tired of curling your lashes? Faces, Etc. offers lash perming and tinting as well! You won’t need your eyelash curler anymore because lashes stay curled up to three months! Your lashes will appear longer and fuller when curled and tinted. This can eliminate problems such as allergic reactions to makeup, as well as smudges and smears, making your makeup always perfect! 

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal and traditional electrolysis are also offered at Faces, Etc. From legs, underarms, backs and bikini lines, men and women are raving about the success of laser hair removal.

Don’t forget that winter and spring seasons are the prime months to prepare your body and skin for the summer season. 

As a certified laser-tech, Greene uses the Gentle LASE system and performs all permanent hair reduction under the guidance of a medical director. 

Hair design

LeeAnna Carpenter and Anna Ketchum provide complete hair care for the entire family.

Right now she is offering feather hair extensions, available for $25-45 per link, lasting up to two months and can be reused. She also replaces them for $10. She also offers peek-a-boo highlight extensions. Both types of extensions are done with micro fusion links, which are comfortable, and help prevent damage to the hair.
