Most think of acne as only a problem teenagers face, but as many of us know, it’s a condition that also can affect adults. Years ago, the only solution was a supermarket ointment that dried out your skin, but now there’s a surefire way to treat acne regardless of your age.
Nicole McGinnis, who owns Reveal Salon and Aesthetics at 8929 South Memorial in Tulsa, is a licensed aesthetician who specializes in the treatment of acne. “I didn’t have acne as a teenager, but when I hit my 20s my face broke out and I wasn’t sure what to do,” says Nicole. Rather than try an over the counter product, she sought the help of a dermatologist, who prescribed medication. “It helped temporarily, but as soon as I quit taking it, the acne was back.” She noticed it not only affected her appearance, but her self-confidence as well. Determined to find a better way to remedy the problem, Nicole got her skin-care license and began studying the best ways to solve the problem so many people face.
“It’s really not a one size fits all,” explains Nicole. Each person comes in for a consult and Nicole discusses diet, lifestyle and product choices that may affect the skin. Then, a light chemical peel is done followed by a custom blend of products based on each person’s specific needs. Sessions are generally performed every two weeks and although results can vary, in about three months, most of the acne has vanished. “We then work with each client on a maintenance program that allows them to stay clear for a lifetime.”
With summer quickly approaching, it’s important to remember facial acne is not the only area of concern. “People come in to get back and chest acne treated as well,” reminds Nicole. And with graduation coming up, what better present than a gift card to the salon. It’s also a good time for those home from college to get their appointments scheduled before the summer slips away. Although it may sound like an expensive process, it’s usually more affordable than seeing a doctor or some of the pricey regiments advertised on television.
Besides acne treatment, Reveal Salon also offers other skin-care solutions such as facials, brow shaping, lash and brow tint, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, OxyGeneo, micro phototherapy, skin tag treatment, Rezenerate, Peptide infusion with oxygen and even custom blended mineral foundation.
