2017″After years of sun exposure and more than my share of skin cancers, I was lucky enough to find Dr. Karen when I came to Winchester. Along with close monitoring of my skin for any new potential cancers, I take advantage of any options to repair and/or minimize the damage to my skin. I routinely get Clear and Brilliant treatments from Dr. Karen and his staff, specifically Kerry Hellwig and I have been amazed at the results combined with the skin care regimen using ZO Skin Health. Today I had my first HydraFacial and was lucky enough to also get to meet Dr. Karen’s newest team member, Master Esthetician, Sydney Ritchie. She is amazing and the HydraFacial is now on my schedule for routine skincare. If you haven’t tried the Clear & Brilliant or the HydraFacial, please do. You won’t be disappointed. Congrats Dr. Karen on your excellent team.”  Kelli V.

I am 55 years old and have been getting the HydaFacials for the past six months, from Rita at Exclusively Faces.  Since I have been getting them, I have had old classmates, friends I haven’t seen in years telling me I look great.  I caught my 34 year old daughter staring at me one day and asked her why?  She said my skin is beautiful and glowing, and she can only hope that at my age she looks as good.  After a treatment my skin feels so clean, and fresh.  I see less wrinkles, my dark spots have disappeared and my skin now glows.  I use to wear foundation and have now switched to a translucent mineral powder.

Thanks to the staff at Exclusively Faces Medispa..

In 2002 I felt old. I looked into the mirror and thought I do not feel as old as the image the mirror reflects. I heard the commercial aired by Dr. Karen giving free consultations. I decided I needed to go to see if something could be done to make me look as young as I felt. It was one of the best decisions that I ever made. With the advice of Dr. Karen, I had my eye lids lifter and what a difference! It wasn’t dramatic, but it was a subtle change that made me look more alert and not as tired. Since then I started with Botox injections and now I look and feel so much better. As they say, you only go through life once. Now, thanks to Dr. Karen and his wonderful staff, I love looking as young as I feel. At my 35th class reunion, everyone commented on how great I looked – It was like I never aged! Thank you so much Dr. Karen.

I wanted to send you my thanks for introducing me to a terrific line of products form Nutrametrix. This product line has begun to help me get my life back on track by focusing on nutrition and a 90-95% vitamin delivery system. After dealing with constant fatigue and exhaustion in addition to aching continuously, finding something to help alleviate these symptoms because my mission. At first, I began with some diet changes. Then I began to explore different types of vitamin supplements and tried many different sources. This began with products form the local health food store to ads online, to the radio and television. Though a little change was noticed, the fatigue and achiness did not cease or even becomes significantly less in any way. Everything really changed when I attended a special night for the ladies called “A Night of Indulgence” at Exclusively Faces. It is here that I had the good fortune to meet Cathy Embrey. Kath gave man interesting demonstration on facials. At the conclusion of her demonstration she discussed with me my particular needs and health issues along with her facial and massage processes. She then recommended specific products from the Nutrametrix line to help get me started back on the road to being healthy. At first, being cautious after trying so many other things, Kathy placed an initial order for me. I began to use the products and I cannot believe how much better I am feeling. My overall energy has increased dramatically and the body aches have basically disappeared. To date, I have been using this product for two months. Without her direction and support I would probably still be looking for that miracle potion. Thanks so much to everyone at Exclusively Faces for all you have done for me and I HIGHLY recommend Nutrametrix products to everyone who is looking for a healthier lifestyle.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Matthew Karen. I am 58 years old and had been contemplating blephroplasty surgery for many, many years due to the condition “ptosis” which is now a word in my vocabulary. My upper eyelids began to droop to an intolerable point, impairing my vision. When returning home from a day’s work, I was exhausted. Not from my job, but from working to hold my eyes open. I did not “interview” a number of plastic surgeons, but rather streamlined the process by calling my general surgeon for his advice. He highly recommended, without reservation, Dr. Matthew Karen. The rest is history! The procedure went beautifully thanks to Dr. Karen and his office staff. The results are exactly what I was hoping for. Dr. Karen is passionate about his profession, and he has my heartfelt thanks.

My cosmetic facial surgical experience, in 2005, was a positive one from beginning to end. Dr. Karen and his staff made me feel comfortable with their expert knowledge and professionalism. I am always given pleasant, friendly greeting and confidentiality is respected. I have always received an answer to my many questions to help prepare me for the surgical experience, healing process and desired results. I put my trust in Dr. Karen and his expert hands. I am definitely pleased with the surgery and the successful results that are reflected back to me everyday. Also, Botox injections do wonders for specific areas and Dr. Karen is expertly smooth with a needle. I highly recommend Dr. Karen and his staff to sculpt and nurture your individual cosmetic procedure and uplift your self esteem.

Just wanted to say again how much I appreciate your kindness during my recovery and most importantly my new eyes!

Ever since I was in my early 20’s, I have always expressed that the one thing I disliked the most about my looks are the bags under my eyes, inherited by my father. Now that I am in my 40’s this has progressively become an issue so I decided to have them removed. On February 20, 2007 Dr. Karen did a Lower Blephroplasty and Chemical Peel. During this procedure Dr. Karen and his staff made me feel very comfortable and treated me with the utmost respect. Three weeks later I can honestly state that I am extremely pleased with the results, most of my family and friends have stated to me “You look years younger” which was not my concern but certainly sounds wonderful to hear. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Karen and his staff. My results made it worth every penny I paid for my NEW EYES.

Just wanted to give you a follow-up to yesterday’s IPL procedure. What a remarkable difference. Not sure if the results will last, as I know the skin is in a healing stage, but the texture and overall tightness of the skin is amazing. 90% of m smile lines are gone. I have to say that the results are much better than anticipated and aside from a little pinkness in my skin; you could never tell that anything was done, except for the results of course. Thanks to Dr. Karen and the staff I am looking forward to round #2.You guys are AWSOME!!!!

Dr. Karen was very helpful with suggestions regarding how to repair scar tissue. He recommended a non-evasive approach as a first step with suggestions for additional procedures if needed. I appreciated his honesty and thoroughness with our questions. Your patients will not be disappointed!

I have been battling with acne since my teen years. I am now in my mid-thirties and have tried everything under the sun to reduce my acne scarring from over the counter to prescription topical medications as well as microdermabrasions. Nothing worked! I did some research online and read about the IPL laser treatments. After my first treatment I would stare in the mirror not believing the results I was witnessing. My scarring was visibly smaller. After 3 treatments, I feel more comfortable about myself and will even leave the house without makeup on. IPL has truly been life changing for me. Dr. Karen’s staff is extremely pleasant to work with and eased me into the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Karen’s office for any facial concerns someone may have.

I’m the social media specialist of Exclusively Faces. I have been working for Doctor Karen since January. In that time I have learned a lot about skin care and surgical and medical procedure we offer here at Exclusively Faces. One of the few treatments I have personally tried since working at Exclusively Faces is the Obagi Clenziderm system. Since my early teens I have been plagued with oily skin, terrible cystic acne and the low self esteem that comes with it. My skin condition was never so bad that a Dermatologist would put me on something like Accutane, but I tried a whole slew of different cleansers, washes and gels to try to control my skin. All to no avail.

Until I came to Exclusively Faces and tried the Clenziderm system. I can honestly say nothing has worked so well on my skin for so long. I have been on Clenziderm for about 4 months and the results are amazing. My skin is much smoother, break outs are a thing of the past and if one does happen it is much more easily controlled with spot treatments. My skin is much less oily than it was and all the marks from my years of acne have been minimized to the point where they can be covered with a tiny bit of tinted moisturizer, not the glob of foundation and concealer I was using before. There is an initial period when you skin has to get used to the Clenziderm system because it is increasing cell turnover. So for about 2 and a half weeks my skin was a bit red and dry and I was getting minor break outs. But once I hit week three of using the system it was like flipping a switch. All of a sudden I was seeing the skin I had always dreamed of seeing.

Obagi Clenziderm is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to my skin and I wish I had found it so much sooner. I am never going back, now that I am on the Clenziderm system. If you or someone you know suffers from overly oily skin or acne of any kind, you need to try this skin care line before you waste any more money on anything else. Come in to Exclusively Faces to find out more about Obagi Clenziderm and the other Obagi skin care lines. You will be happy you did.
