Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Facials & More Med Spa
Over the better part of a decade, aesthetician Cheryl Selph has seen her share of pores. As the owner and operator of Facials & More Med Spa, she performs detailed facials such as The Merlot (an anti-oxidant mask), The Shirley Pimple (an acne mask), the My Fair Lady (a mask that lightens) and The Botox (an anti-aging mask that aims to mimic the injectable). Though the names have whimsy, the treatments themselves are all business. This is evidenced by her future-grade technology that includes Palamar EsteLux lasers, red light therapy beds, medical-grade peels and microdermabrasion wands. No matter the method, all of Cheryl's treatments are aimed at helping clients to achieve aesthetic goals such as clearer skin, less visible lines, and non-pixelated faces. Cheryl's daughter, Alexandra Martin, handles more permanent artistry. Alexandra is trained and certified in permanent makeup, including permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liner and lip color.
