Like the receipts, crumbs, pennies, and lint that linger in the depths of your purse, dead skin cells and dirt can clog your pores and form a dingy dead-face mask over your own beautiful mug. Today's Groupon dumps your face purse upside down, shakes out the crumbs, and vacuums up the dingy: for $35, you get an hour-long facial at Kimberly's Facial Boutique, an $85 value.
After completing training at New York's famed Elizabeth Arden salon and working at posh destination-spa Maine Chance, expert aesthetician Kimberly left to pursue her own skincare practice. A licensed professional since 1985, Kimberly tailors all treatments to a client's specific needs. All facials include cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and a relaxing facial massage.
Even if you follow a rigorous skincare routine, you likely lack the tools necessary to really probe into your pores and de-clog them from all the makeup, dirt, and gunk trapped inside. Facial rejuvenation does great things and can help reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and get rid of bothersome blackheads. Experts advise getting one every four to six weeks due to skin regeneration, or at least seasonally.
Kimberly's Facial Boutique
After becoming licensed in 1985, Kimberly Eckles, recipient of 944 Magazine's 2006 Editors Choice Award for Best Facial among others, had the talent to not only train at Elizabeth Arden's esteemed New York City spa, but to then work at renowned destinations such as Maine Chance and Camelback Inn. But over time, she felt unfulfilled by working mostly with vacationers, and longed to build a clientele of regulars. So she struck out on her own and opened Kimberly's Facial Boutique, where she administers the wide range of treatments she's learned over the years.
Those interested in more traditional services could book a signature facial, but her specialty lies in more advanced treatments. Her service menu includes everything from oxygen and AHA peels to LED light therapy and myotonology, a treatment that firms skin with low-level currents. But Kimberly still practices the luxurious touches that she picked up at those destination spas: treatments include extras like hot stones, hand and foot pampering, advanced facial massage, and adorable drink umbrellas.
