Christine’s Skin is GLOWING After Her Facial at Skin Boss Med Spa [Pics]
We always hear about how important it is to take care of ourselves, whether that's eating healthy, staying active, or taking care of our mental health. But let's not forget about something else that needs our attention ... our skin! Between aging, makeup, buildup and sun exposure, our skin goes through A LOT! So don't forget about taking care of your body's largest organ.
You can start that process and give your skin the care it needs at Skin Boss Med Spa, which is located in Haslett, near East Lansing. From the moment you walk into Skin Boss, you know two things almost immediately: 1) You're about to get pampered 2) You're going to get a high-end experience. The reception/main area of the facility will make anyone feel like they are in a place of luxury.
While Skin Boss offers several different services, I went in for a much-needed facial. Before getting started, though, we went through a personalized consultation to analyze my skin and address my skincare needs and goals.
We then went to this room where a high-tech machine (Visia Machine) analyzes your face from all angles.
I'm 32 years old but according to the analysis, my skin's age is 30! Score!
After the consultation and the results from the machine, we agreed upon what type of facial would be best for me. Now, time for the real action to begin.
I was taken into this facial room, which not only was super cozy, but look at the ceiling! They have it set-up so it feels like you're looking into a night sky full of stars.
Getting my skin ready for the facial:
After discussing options, we agreed on doing a dermaplane facial. Dermaplane removes dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz), allowing deeper penetration of products into the skin. It also brightens and smooths. A scalpel is used for the process, but don't let the word "scalpel" scare you -- there is nothing painful about this.
Gotta get the whole face free of dead skin cells!
Next up was the LED Light Therapy to stimulate the collagen and heal the skin. This process helps with anti-aging, reducing redness, acne and inflammation. My technician referred to it as a "happy light," because it can also help those who are feeling sad, anxious, stressed ... similar effect of a sun lamp.
I was under the light for 20 minutes, and during that I was getting an awesome arm and shoulder massage. Any longer, and I would've been snoozing because it was so relaxing.
Before the facial vs. after the facial.

I was blown away by the difference. But not only does it show in the pictures, more importantly, you could feel the difference.
Since getting the facial, my skin has felt a lot smoother and just healthier in general. I loved it so much that I set up another appointment to do a DiamondGlow facial, which will leave my skin glowing even more.
It's one of those things you have to experience for yourself, and you can NOW, because they are offering complimentary consultations!
Not only do they offer a variety of facials, but other services include injectables like Botox and Juvederm, laser hair reduction, laser vein removal, BBL (BroadBand Light), permanent makeup and TruSculpt Flex.
Something worth mentioning, taking care of your skin isn't just for women. Men should be doing the same, and Skin Boss also offers services for men. See a full list of services here, and make sure to contact them online or give them a call at 517-999-0900 for your complimentary consultation!
