Why Should I See an Esthetician?
Esthetics is the application of various treatments to the skin, to maintain its health and vitality. Estheticians are trained in skin wellness, helping their clients balance oil and moisture content and achieve a healthy, youthful complexion. As well as various facial treatments (described in more detail here), they commonly also perform body treatments such scrubs, moisturizing or slenderizing body wraps, hair removal techniques such as waxing or tweezing, and hand/foot treatments to rejuvenate the skin.
A variety of treatments and products are used to protect skin from environmental hazards and combat fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull, uneven skin tone. Estheticians are also skilled in managing conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and dry skin, to name just a few. And finally, skin care treatments are wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating. If smooth, healthy skin is your goal, visiting a skin care professional can benefit you.

Spooktacular October Special
Soothing LightStim LED light therapy helps power up your skin’s cells to generate proteins necessary for plumping, firming and smoothing. This technology was pioneered by NASA, where it was shown to stimulate the growth of skin cells by 150-171%, boost circulation, and accelerate healing. In FDA clinical trials, all participants (100%) observed an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after only eight weeks. This treatment includes a machine-free manual microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells, a wonderfully hydrating masque that is activated by the LED treatment, and the infusion of potent collagen boosters and peptides to nourish, protect and leave your skin with a radiant glow.
