What is Holistic Skincare?
In holistic skincare we dont focus on the skin alone but on the individuals wellness, from their mental state to lifestyle choices. Holistic skincare is a journey that I would love to be a part of.
What is the difference between a regular facial Vs. a holistic facial?
The conventional facial leans heavily on using skin treatments such as, harsh chemical peels, micro needling, dermabrasion. These treatments are considered invasive because it changes the biological structure of the skin. In Holistic esthetics, beautiful skin is achieves without invasive techniques that have side effects.
How are your facial treatments different?
In all skin care treatments offered, every step is customized towards what your skin needs at the time you walk in to my treatment room. I dont like having ADD ONs because you might not know what your skin really needs on the day of your appointment. My facial maintenace treatments are the basic facials that are build for any skin type, concerns, goals, anyone. My Pro Facial Treatments are more focus in finishing your treatments with a facial massage like never before to sculpt, tone, define your facial structures. Regardless of the the treatment your skin will get what it needs, every product (even our peels) used during out treatments are clean, natural and save for your skins microbiome. I invite you to book a complimentary consultation to see if im a good fit for your skin.
Can i see results with a holistic approach in skin care?
YES!! only results will come within time and with consistency. As a holistic esthetician i looking further in than just your skin, we look into your daily life habits, your eating habits, your stress level so much more. Therefore, taking time to see results. With the non-invasive treatments i offer your skin results can be done with frequent visits (see our package deals or book a consultation to plan your personal plan).
