Nicole McGinnis is hard at work treating a client who battles acne.
It is no surprise that many of us devote plenty of attention to heart-healthy foods and liver-boosting nutrients; however, many still neglect the body’s largest organ, our skin. It just so happens that this particular organ is, in many cases, responsible for first impressions and self-image. Unfortunately, millions of people of all ages battle skin conditions such as acne, hyper-pigmentation and fine lines each year. Reveal Salon’s Nicole McGinnis is on a mission to help unburden locals suffering under these afflictions with custom corrective treatments.
Nicole, an esthetician of 15 years, understands that not all skin conditions are created equally, and as such, cannot be treated equally. Unlike many popular skin care companies, she does not subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. Instead, she utilizes a program called Face Reality. With the help of this system, she is able to personalize and adjust each treatment based on skin tone, lifestyle, food allergies, and more.
The treatments, which take about 45 minutes to complete, are administered every two weeks until skin reaches 90 percent clarity. One client, Aubrey Loney, a longtime acne sufferer, recently sang the praises of these treatments via social media. “Nicole McGinnis has been doing light peels and light treatments on my skin for a couple of months to treat my acne. I had tried everything and could not get rid of it. She is wonderful!”
This tale of success is not an isolated one. Nicole attributes these results to the education that she provides her clients at the beginning of treatment. “Most people need treatment and preventative measures,” Nicole explains. “I caution clients that this isn’t a one-time fix, but it is effective. It is important that clients come in for an education about both the custom treatments and at-home care.”
Nicole opened her full service salon just over a year ago. “It is hard to find the right place. I wanted a place to carry on my work as well as offer nails, hair and a master barber. I have that place in Reveal,” Nicole says.
After enjoying the successes of custom treatments, clients have routinely expressed a desire for a makeup line that works with skin prone to acne and breakouts. With this in mind, Nicole has recently adopted a makeup line that boasts only four ingredients, and it is proven to nurture sensitive skin rather than aggravate it: Mineral Hygenics. Nicole’s makeup choice contains a chemical free SPF, inert materials, which discourage mold and fungus while increasing the makeup’s shelf life, and no irritants.
There is no reason to suffer from problematic skin any longer; start nurturing your epidermis today. For more information please visit Reveal’s website or call for more information. Reveal Salon’s custom treatments are available by appointment.
