About Face and Body has a fresh new face. Karen Callies recently became the new owner and operator.

About Face and Body Laser Wellness Clinic is a full-service clinic offering skin, hair and body treatments. They also carry a full line of medical grade skin-care products.

Karen Callies, who purchased the business in early January of this year is excited about this new challenge in her life. “My husband recently retired so I was looking for a change, something a little more flexible. I love to learn new things. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to further develop my business and marketing skills.”

The clinic offers both laser hair removal and PRP hair restoration, body contouring and cellulite removal, as well as sclerotherapy for veins. Their skilled estheticians also provide a wide range of skin care services, such are facials, photo rejuvenation, chemical peels and micro-needling. Botox is also available through a regularly scheduled on-site doctor.

Their entire line of skin care products is all medical grade.

“Our estheticians are experts in their field,” said Karen. “Did you know that estheticians receive extensive training in skin care? More so than the average nurse. Their depth of knowledge is incredible.”

As well as ramping up the marketing and creating a stronger social media presence, Karen is committed to ensuring that they have the best, most modern technology and equipment available. A new FDA approved micro-needling machine has been recently added and can provide treatment for any skin tone, any time of the year.

Through continued education, excellent customer service, and a reputation for being the experts in the community, Karen plans to grow the business. “Most of our clientele is women, but we have more and more men coming in for various treatments.”

About Face and Body prides itself on being a relationship-based business. They offer a warm friendly environment and treat everyone as if they were family.

“We encourage everyone to stop in for a free consultation, even if you aren’t sure what treatment is for you. We have a no-pressure environment and we are discreet. We want you to be comfortable with whatever option you choose.” Karen encourages people to come in and have a little fun trying out their app that will guess their age.

Being involved with the community and sponsoring various events around the city is a priority for the new owner. Karen firmly believes that relationship building isn’t just about your clients, it’s about engaging the whole community.

About Face and Body Laser and Wellness Clinic welcomes everyone to stop in and see what all the buzz is about. They offer free consultations, monthly specials and flexible pricing packages.

The clinic is located at 1098 London Road. You can call for an appointment at 519 542 0079 or book online. Check out their business hours at
