Last week, I attended Eastside Skin Care and Laser Center Open House to celebrate their new location in Rochester, Michigan. Although I was there to check out medical spa, they are a division of the Eastside Gynecology and Obstetrics and Eastside Midwives. I also love that one of their doctors, Dr. Suzy Hall, can be found on Twitter and is founder of of the the Eastside Gynecology Twitter handle, @GynoGroupie.
So at the Rochester location, you can get a physical and a facial in one place - how awesome is that?!
Now I’ve seen fair share of doctor offices and medical spas. They almost always feel, well, cold and impersonal. This office was quite the opposite. The waiting room and treatment rooms are beautiful with warm, wood floors, calm beige walls, and serene artwork.
While I was at the Open House, I had the pleasure of talking to Karen. I could tell by her knowledge and enthusiasm that she is passionate about skin care. She provides a long list of services which include everything from chemical peels to microdermabrasion to laser hair removal.
Her excitement was contagious because I haven’t been inspired to inquire about a medical facial since I was pregnant with Marie, almost seven years ago. I always felt the pain and torture of extractions just didn’t seem to balance out the results of glowing skin.
I asked her how painful, and I appreciated her honesty when she said that extractions can be uncomfortable. However, she went into detail about how she lessens the discomfort by using a galvanic current to loosen up the clogged pores along with lots of steam and exfoliation. I think I could handle that.
Because this center is located in a doctor’s office, I like that she can use injections to take care of cystic acne (which can usually be found residing on my chin).
Eastside Skin Care and Laser Center also offers a host of other services such as photo rejuvenation, , Juvederm and Botox, and Ultherapy. They also carry products from Glytone and Avene. (My favorite was Cicalfate which heals and moisturizes the skin all at once).
During the open house, Eastside Skin Care and Laser were offering specials on services. If you were unable to make it out to the event, they are offering the special prices until April 30th if you mention April Open House!
What is your favorite spa service? Is there a service that you have always wanted to try?
I am totally thinking it might be time to try a facial again!
