Testimonials

Jeannie Schiavone -

Once you've had a facial by Francine, you will be spoiled forever!  I spend the winter in Florida and have yet to find anyone who even comes close to Francine's facials.  I've finally given up!  I have often told Francine that she has a "special touch."  She commits totally to your skin, your relaxation and the quality of treatment for your entire session.  Additionally, she keeps herself educated on current skin trends, treatments and commentary.  I recommend that anyone who can, experience one of these facials at least once - you and your skin will be convinced.  I'm positive.  And wait until you see how beautiful your skin looks!


Susan LaPenta -

I have had my facials with Francine for over 10 years.  My problematic skin has shown much improvement by having regular facials and using her recommended products.  I have people comment on how much younger I look than my "seasoned 57".  She is very professional and attentive to my skin care needs.  She presents a very relaxing and tranquil atmosphere.  It is a place where you can just lay back and relax while she pampers you and your skin with melodious music soothing your soul in the background.  I always look forward to my next visit to renew and refresh my skin and de-stress from each demanding day. Thank You!

I have been going to Francine for the past 15 years for my skin care.  I'm in my late 60's and my skin has a natural glow and refreshing look.  I use the products she has recommended for my skin type and have no complaints.  Friends of mine always ask about my skin care program and I highly suggest Facials by Francine as the person to see.

I could not be more pleased to be writing my first testimonial in almost 63 years for FACIALS BY FRANCINE.  One cannot find a more thorough, relaxing beneficial and therapeutic facial anywhere in this world.  (I have tried!)  Francine has not only gifted strong hands, and an expertise of the skin, but she really cares about her clients as well.  I have been Francine's client for over fifteen years and am so grateful to the friend that initially recommended her to me.

ACNE TESTIMONIALS



Juliette -

When I first came to Francine I had acne all over my face. I had a lot of blackheads, whiteheads and some papules. I tried everything on the market practically and nothing was working. I have been to several Dermatologists and have taken antibiotics with no results. I started treatments with Francine every week, along with using the Yonka products and I have seen such an improvement to my skin. I feel much more confident in the way I look. I don’t feel embarrassed not wearing any make-up. Thank you Francine you have made me so happy!



Christina Devine -

I have tried everything from renowned New York Dermatologists, nutritionists and countless topicals to cure my acne. After just two visits with Francine, I saw a drastic improvement in my skin. Almost two years later my skin is clear and glowing. Thank you Francine for making me feel beautiful again!



Victoria Ruiz -

 I am in my early 40’s and have been struggling with acne since my teen years and unfortunately it is getting worse with age. This year my acne reached a new high and I made the commitment to get it under control. I have visited 3 different Dermatologist, have been put on both oral and topical medications and did not see any results. I have been a client of Francine’s for about 14 years but did not utilize her services on a consistent basis. This past September I met with Francine, changed my facial cleansing products and worked out a facial schedule. Thanks to Francine’s “Special Fingers”, my acne problem is under control. I now go without cover-up and my family has commented on how good my face looks. It has been a wonderful transformation and I recommend the medical facials provided by Francine to anyone with acne problems, it definitely works. 


Lois Isaacson -

I first went to Francine because when passing her salon, I noticed the “Yonka” sign in her window. I previously went to someone for facials where I lived before who uses Yonka products and liked them. So, I tried Francine. That was over three years ago. I had really bad whiteheads all around my eyes and couldn’t get rid of them. In just a few sessions, Francine worked her special touch. I am free of all blemishes and remain free of any whiteheads or any other kind of acne for that matter. She truly has a “Special Touch”. I continue my facials regularly but rarely get a blemish. I recommend her to all my friends all the time.


Irwin Isaacson -

 My wife goes to Francine for her facials and looks great! I had a really bad problem with blackheads. People thought I had two black eyes. That’s how bad they were around my eyes. My wife suggested a facial with Francine. So, I tried it out. What a good idea that was! She worked a miracle on my face. After a few months, I not only had no blackheads, but people think I am many years younger than I am. I still go regularly for facials. You know, it is nice to look younger. She truly has a “Special Touch”.
