Guiltless Treat | Deborah DeMarco Skin Care + Giveaway!

November 9, 2011

How often are you able to treat yourself to something wonderful and not feel guilty about it? Always, sometimes, or never? I fall somewhere in the “sometimes” category making time for a regular mani-pedi and I have a standing hair appointment every six weeks. These are indeed treats and I sometimes feel guilty for indulging. But, whoa! I had a wave a guilt wash over me last week when I visited Deborah at Deborah DeMarco Skin Care for a customized skin care treatment!

 

Deborah DeMarco Skin Care is located in my old stomping grounds of Orange. Her private studio is on the second floor of the historic Berkeley Home on Chapman Avenue a couple blocks from of the Orange Circle. When I got to my appointment, Deborah and I sat down and discussed my health and skin care problems at length so that she could customize a treatment specifically for me.

After I slipped into a fluffy terrycloth robe and snuggled up on the heated treatment table, Deborah went to work “mapping” my face in effort to provide me with a detailed analysis of the skin and décolletage. She talked me through the entire process explaining what she saw. A double cleansing and exfoliation followed, as well as a gentle extraction, masque and massage. It was heavenly! Deborah also treated my hands to a massage and warm hand mitt treatment. And she didn’t let me go without applying a SPF!

When finished, we discussed the face mapping analysis and she gave me written instructions for a daily routine. I was offered a bottle of water and raw almonds – apparently they benefit the skin! – and I confessed to feeling guilty. Deborah stopped me right there and told me that we shouldn’t feel guilty about taking care of ourselves. That the skin is our largest and most visible organ and that it deserves our full attention and care. Ok, my guilt was gone and my skin was glowing! A win-win in my book.

Deborah DeMarco has been a licensed skin care therapist since 2006. Her practical experience includes providing state-of-the-art services in dermatology/medical office, day spa, and full service salon settings. Her focus is to provide clients with individual skin care in order to give them the healthiest and most lustrous skin they can have – regardless of age or condition.

Treatments are 100% customized though Deborah offers several special skin care treatments including: AGE Smart (revitalizing power boost to aging skin), Medicated Clearing (jump-start acne clearing for adults), Teen Acne Facials (created for teenage problematic skin), ChromaWhite TRx (brighten, improve tone, enhance skin clarity from brown spots), and UltraCalming (soothe and replenish aggravated skin).

In my opinion, the best service offered is the MicroZone treatment designed to solve specific issues in about 20 minutes! Consider these a quick fix in between regular visits: Flash exfoliation, moisture boost, oil control, age management, eye rescue, lip renewal, and rapid spot clearing are just a few of the zone-specific treatments. Deborah also offers Alpha Hydroxy peels and brow design and waxing.

I truly enjoyed meeting Deborah. I’ve experienced a few terrible facials in my life (cleansers dropped into my eyes, rough extractions, and waxing mishaps) but my visit to Deborah DeMarco Skin Care was one of the best I’ve ever had. Deborah is passionate about caring for skin, she’s extremely knowledgeable, and she’s exceptionally gentle. I already booked my next appointment!

Deborah DeMarco Skin Care is located at 1420 E. Chapman Avenue, Suite 2A, 2nd Floor in Orange. To schedule an appointment, call (714) 815-6694. And of course, check our Deborah DeMarco Skin Care on Facebook, Twitter, and Yelp.

I would really love to get that mapping thing done. I can tell changes are happening to my skin and I’d really like to find out what I can do to help it out.

I would not feel guilty about giving my face a facial. I am 36 and I have had maybe 5 skin care related appointments In my whole life. I’m so overdue. I use Spa daily but I am definitely seeing signs of aging.
Hope I win!

Medicated clearing would be wonderful, it’s not fair to still have breakouts at my age!

I want the skin mapping. Because my skin is an unrecognizable dark continent of hidden dangers.

All the treatments sound wonderful, although I must say I am leaning toward the age smart or the ChromaWhite TRx treatments!

Thanks,
