Testimonials

I have used the PCA Skin care line for over 10 years. I’ve always had “problem” skin, I first came to Kim in I believe 2005 wanting some help, advice and treatment suggestions. She recommended the PCA Skin line and also the Youngblood cosmetics line. Along with this I was given a few peels and was incredibly pleased with the results. Since that time I have been loyal to those two lines and my skin has been great except for an occasional breakout. Fast forward 10 years….I live a few miles out and discovered I could order my products on line from various vendors. Not much of a savings but the convenience was great! First time-no problem, second time not so lucky. It seemed like everything I put on my face felt caustic and I was having even more problems when out in the heat and sweating. Finally decided to get back in with Kim & try to figure out what was going on. After looking at my skin and asking numerous questions she asked where I’d been getting my products. Seems that was the problem, packaging was identical, product was not! PCA had some problems with poor quality products being sold on line in copycat packaging. So that being said I replaced all of my online products with ones from Kim. I could tell after the first use that this was the product I was used to. The others had no strange odor or color so it never entered my mind that they were the problem. So my skin has calmed down and I’ve been able to start back up with the peels. I’m so happy I went in and I so appreciated the advice. Thanks Kim.
I have been doing Botox for over 10 years. During that time, I had 3 different physicians inject Botox to erase my wrinkles. The results were fair and sometimes, very disappointing. Then I found Essentially Bare, where Kim Barnes is a licensed aesthetician. Her technique injecting Botox was superior to the previous providers. I am very pleased with the results and will continue to go in for my tune ups.
"I went to Essentially Bare and had photo rejuvenation. I was impressed with Kim’s professionalism, and the cleanliness of the clinic. I had trouble on my face and chest with sun spots and redness. After just one treatment, I was very pleased with the results and am looking forward to another treatment. Also the way Kim educated me about what I could expect post treatment, was very accurate. I knew what to expect, and it made me feel much more comfortable with the treatment. I would highly recommend Kim and I appreciate her honesty as well." I have been doing Botox for over 10 years.

"Dear Kim: Since my mid-thirties I have been plagued with an increasing amount of unwanted facial hair. Not only was it a complete shock to me when it began to show up, but I had no idea how tedious it was going to be to try to get rid of how it looked. I tried all the usual remedies but waxing gets old. You have to go in for appointments all the time and it hurts. Hair removal creams made my lips and jaw line numb which scared me because numbness cannot be good. Bleach stung and sometimes made me go numb too and it smells terrible, as did the hair removal creams. Years of this made me wish the problem would just go away. If I had added it up, the amount of money over 20 years would add up to something that would probably make me angry, never mind the hours spent on the issue. Your laser hair removal treatments really did make my problem completely go away! I appreciate how much you explained to me, the honesty with which you explained everything and how you talked with me until my concerns were all answered. I came in embarrassed but you quickly put me at ease. I love that cooling element on your laser too! I have already recommended you to several people. Thanks for a great experience."

"Hi my name is Charlene and I would like everyone to know that since I switched to Essentially Bare for my laser treatments that I am so very pleased with the quality and care that I have received that I highly recommend it. I had received such poor treatment at the previous place of business of whom I wish I could name that I almost had decided to give up and do no more treatments, however I was so glad that I decided to try Essentially Bare. If you want quality care and treatment this is the place for you. I do not normally vouch for any business but Essentially Bare is so deserving of my praise. ​THANK YOU! Kim."

"I have been doing microdermabrasion with Kim Barnes for about ten weeks. I have seen such improvement in my skin. I have large pores and an uneven complexion and these treatments have done wonders. Kim is very knowledgeable about her product and her procedures. I would recommend her services very highly."

"I started coming to Kim at Essentially Bare, after I had received other treatments from another facility. I was skeptical of switching places in the middle of my series of treatment. However, from the first time I talked to her on the phone, I knew that I had made a good move. She answered her phone the first time that I called and she was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. I was very pleased with, not only, the quick response to the phone but the ease of getting in the see her at a time that worked for me! When I went to my first appointment, I was again very pleased. The site of Essentially Bare was great! And the best part was no wait! After, my treatment I was more than pleased. I noticed a better result from Kim in the one treatment, than I had received in my previous three treatments [at another place]. ​I was very pleased with everything! There is not one thing that I would change! Who could ask for more than the best service with the best laser made!!!!!"

​"Mrs. Kim Barnes and her business, Essentially Bare, have been a wonderful part of my life in the last few months. I am so thankful for Kim and her services because it has been a solution to a problem I have been bothered with for years. I love the laser hair removal. The treatments are so quick, easy and painless. I am in and out and immediately seeing the results I had only previously dreamed about."

"I am a middle-aged woman that put up with lots of facial hair since I was in my 20's. I spent every morning plucking and clipping the hair from my face before I went anywhere outside of my home. Even after spending at least 10-15 minutes every day trying to eliminate the hair from my face, I still felt like I had lots of hair that was very noticeable to other people and I used makeup to try to cover the darkness of the new incoming hair. In June of this year, I saw an advertisement in our local paper for Essentially Bare and felt like I had found an answer to my prayers. I met with Kim and found her to be very friendly and caring about my problems. She took the time to explain about hair growth and how the laser could eliminate the hair. I have had four treatments and have found a new freedom that I never thought would happen. I am still getting treatments on the hair that was dormant and that are now coming in, but I no longer need to spend time plucking hair from my face since most of the hair is now gone! The procedure is virtually painless and the results are immediate! I highly recommend Kim at Essentially Bare to anyone who is looking for a way to eliminate unwanted hair. Thank you, Kim!!"

"I am in my early 30s and thought my battles with acne were over. Lack of self-confidence because of my appearance limited me from social interaction. When I gave Kim a call, she immediately made me feel at ease and helped educate me in ways to better take care of my skin. Through a combination of microdermabrasion, chemical peels and her skin care line my skin is radiant, smooth and healthy. Thank you Kim for helping me feel beautiful inside and out!"

"When I came to Essentially Bare, I was a frustrated 51 year old, struggling with adult cystic acne, and upset beyond words over many failed and costly attempts to treat it. I was skeptical about trying one more thing, but a dear friend of mine insisted that chemical peels had helped her, not only with acne, but with softening and smoothing her complexion. Now, after only two treatments with Kim, I am thrilled to report that the improvement in my skin is dramatic. The acne is healing and resolving quickly, and my complexion is much smoother. Thank you, Kim, for your personal care and individualized professional help with my skin problems. I've never had so much hope for actually enjoying my complexion in these mature years of life."
