Give the gift of great skin this Christmas with a facial


With Christmas right around the corner, many are whittling down their gift lists.

Want to give a present that can help your loved ones look and feel great? Look no further than a facial.

“When you give a facial for a Christmas gift the receiver will be beyond grateful,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.

“Not only will their skin be assessed and treated accordingly, they will also benefit from the pure relaxation a custom facial brings. Who wouldn’t want that for Christmas?”

At Eterna MedSpa, the multi-step skin treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating and steaming the skin, as well as an extraction to clear clogged pores. A mask is then applied, followed by a hydrating serum and moisturizer.

Another perk to the process? “A face, neck and shoulder massage is given, as well as a hand and foot massage while the mask is on,” Malinowski said.

And after each step in the process, a hot towel is applied to remove product. “This adds to the deep relaxation,” Malinowski said.

Several varieties of facial treatments are available Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.

And they can be a great gift for both females and males.

“We have several men clients that come in for facials. They do it once and they are hooked,” Malinowski said.

Need a gift for a young adult in your life? You can find that at Eterna, too. The spa’s teen facial helps battle breakouts.

All can be merry and bright this holiday season, including your loved ones’ skin, with the gift of a facial.
