The second prettiest woman in the room
By Chrissy Thomas RN, BSN

About Face Skin Care has a long-standing reputation in the wedding business, but it may not be what you think.  Sure, we love to pamper brides and wedding parties and make sure each bride, groom and wedding party member is glowing for the big day. 

Our number one passion, however, is helping the “moms” get ready for one of the most important events in their lives.  This reputation really struck me recently when I was talking with a young woman at one of our events.  She was telling me that she actually lived an hour away from us, but that she had come to the event at her Mom’s request.  She is getting married in August, and her mom had wanted to visit us to see if we could help her freshen up for the wedding.  She told her daughter she wanted to be “the second prettiest woman in the room.”

I thought these words were so inspirational.  Of course, the bride is the center of attention during this special time, but the mothers (and fathers) realize they, too, will be captured in photographs and visited by friends and family they may have not seen in a long time.  Feeling confident and radiant is another step to make this special day even better.

About Face Skin Care strives to restore appearances of clients who are seeing changes related to aging.   Images seen on television and in magazines often show men and women who have radically changed their appearance in a negative way.  We prefer a more natural looking approach to anti aging.  Clients may use anything from gentle skin rejuvenation to injectable fillers like Juvederm or wrinkle relaxers like Botox to smooth skin and even out discolorations, slightly lift sagging facial tissues, and relax the wrinkles of the frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead.  Body FX may be used to reduce circumference of the abdomen, thighs or any part of the body to make a trouble spot a bad memory in 8 weeks.  About Mind and Body, located in the same office as About Face Skin Care, offers a boutique fitness environment of Yoga, Pilates, Barre and other classes to help get fit and healthy.  (You can see the entire schedule of classes and sign up for two free passes at our website www.aboutmindandbody.com) Every face and body is different, and every treatment plan is customized to fit the personality, needs and budget of each client that seeks consultation.

One of the most important things to know about us is that we offer a “no-pressure” environment.  As I told the young woman I was speaking with at the event, every Mom should feel comfortable that making a free consultation appointment with our staff to explore options does not commit her to purchase anything.  I have been amazed over the last thirteen years at the number of men and women who say they have wanted to come in and see what we were all about, but were hesitant.   Many times, clients will have a consultation and return months later to have treatments.  We have been here for over thirteen years, and we plan to be here for many more. 

If you have a wedding or any other special event in your future, we would love to be a part of your plans.  

About Face Skin Care (and About Mind and Body) is (are) located at the corner of Scenic Highway and Janmar Road behind Lowes at 1569 Janmar Rd, Suite B.
