about

I love faces. I think the face is the most interesting and beautiful part of the body. Just as every face is different, I believe each has its own unique needs, especially when it comes to skincare. For seven years, I worked in film, television, and theater production, from casting and assisting directors to set design and studio makeup. During this time, I discovered how much I liked the genuine one-on-one time with the actors and extras while working in the makeup department. I found I was a natural at helping them troubleshoot problems with their skin before, during, and after their time in the make-up chair. I thought to myself, "If I could only work to improve and enhance skin and faces all the time…".

That's when I had my eureka moment to become an esthetician. more

CUSTOM FACIALS

TAILOR MADE     70min / $105

Experience a revitalizing treatment that is the ultimate in personal skincare. This facial is customized based on the condition of your skin at the time of your appointment. No two facials will be the same due to various influences in the body or in your environment that cause imbalances to emerge in the skin. Depending on your personal skin needs, we will discuss the recommended treatments and products before the facial begins so you know what to expect. Options include an anti-aging peel, diamond microdermabrasion, ultrasonic therapy, dermaplaning or a combination of these to brighten, smooth and restore skin to a healthy and happy state!

CLEAN UP YOUR ACT     60min / $95

Skin suffering from acne and blackheads will benefit from this facial. It includes thorough cleansing, extractions, a healing mask, clarification serums, cold therapy techniques to lessen inflammation, high frequency ozone modalities to zap pustular acne away, finished off with a custom moisturizer and a protective SPF to ensure skin remains calm, cool, and in control.

STRAIGHT FROM THE FARM     60min / $90

This facial is completely organic and ideal for teen and sensitive skin, pregnant women, and, of course, any client who prefers organic, all-natural products. Using the Farmaesthetics Skin Care line, the facial begins with a lavender facial cleansing, chamomile or orange exfoliation, herbal hydration mask to sooth and brighten skin or clay mask to clarify, an anti-aging serum and a lavender milk moisturizer to seal the deal for beautiful dewy skin.

RELAXATION STATION     90min / $115

Aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage and micro-current therapy will detox, de-stress and lift tired skin. This facial also includes cleansing, toning, exfoliation, an anti-aging moisturizer and an SPF. To maximize relaxation, you will receive a face and scalp massage, a lavender or mint neck and shoulder massage, a hand and foot anti-aging treatment, and your choice of scent for aromatherapy. You'll walk out relaxed, renewed and refreshed.

WAXING & SUGARING

WAXING

Ideal for clients who do not have sensitive skin. I use a gentle resin strip wax or hard wax depending on the body being treated.

*Whatever option you choose, your hair won’t be there!

SUGARING

Excellent for all skin types, especially those with sensitive, reactive skin. Sugaring consists of a paste made of sugar, honey, and lemon formed into a ball and applied to the skin. I am certified in Advanced Body Sugaring from Alexandria Professional and use Alexandria Professional Sugar for this treatment.

24 HOURS BEFORE TANNING

  1. Exfoliate the entire body with a washcloth, loofah, Clarisonic brush, or body brush, and include ankles, feet and hands as dry skin may effect the final result.

  2. Do not use scrubs with oils. Use pumice stone on feet, if needed.

  3. If you shave, be sure to do so 24 hours in advance, as well.

  4. Shower the day of the tan but be free of all lotions, oils, and deodorant.

  5. Wear dark, loose fitting clothing to your appointment to avoid discoloration.

AFTER-TANNING

  1. The applied tan color takes around 6 hours to fully develop.

  2. After tanning, wait at least a full 6 hours before swimming, bathing, or sweating.
