I am a licensed aesthetician who cares about the wellness and relaxation of my clients. I like to provide more than superficial beauty (but it doesn't mean that I don't like nail art and designs). I work out of my home (walkout basement with separate entrance for clients) so there is no unnecessary cost added except high standards of safety precautions and quality products.

Pharmagel natural facial

I am delighted to announce that I started using Pharmagel products for anti-aging facials and because I am aware that people are always interested in knowing what they are using on their face I am sharing some of the active ingredients:

Studies have provided us with growing evidence that Vitamins A, B, C and E penetrate the skin, protecting the cells and tissues from damage caused by the aging process and environmental stresses. Pharmagel's unique Skin Treatment Delivery System of pharmaceutical grade formulations with intensive vitamins and botanicals provides a beneficial environment for protecting, correcting and renewing the skin.
Vitamin A: Retinyl Palmitate and Retinol-A:
-Antioxidant that protects skin against free radical damage.
-Protects skin from cellular damage by helping to maintain the tone and the softness of the epidermis.
-Penetrates quickly for rapid repair of sun damaged skin. Skin is softer, silkier and more resilient. Increases epithelial growth and thickening of the dermis and epidermis for better skin texture.
-Normalizes dry, parched skin for a smoother, younger, glowing complexion.
Vitamin E: Tocopherol:
-Powerful antioxidant that promotes tissue growth.
-Protects cells and tissues from damage caused by free radicals. Rapidly restores the appearance of soft, firm, youthful contours.

Cracked heels, rheumatic pain, dry skin?

A great complimentary treatment valid till Nov 24,2008
with purchase of Manicure Or Pedicure service, valid till Nov 24,2008

It is paraffin wax treatments are luxurious spa treatments that are intended to moisturize and soften the skin. Paraffin wax treatments are most often applied to the hands and feet as a treatment. Sometimes used in facials masks for dry skin.
It is a soft wax which melts lower than normal temperature. I usually melt blocks of paraffin wax in a special paraffin wax pot. During paraffin wax treatments, I don’t dip clients’ hands or feet into the melted wax (because of hygienic reasons), I wrap the paraffin wax feet/hands with towels dipped in warm wax a layer after another to coat the skin in a generous layer. The hands or feet are then wrapped in plastic, then wrapped in boots/mitts

Benefits of Paraffin wax treatments:

  1. Soothe chronic arthritis joint pain
  2. Relax stiff muscles, warm muscles before therapeutic exercise
  3. Relieve dryness from repeated hand-washing
  4. Tired, overworked hands
  5. Very dry skin
  6. Great addition in dry skin facial (paraffin facials)

Paraffin wax treatments are particular popular in the winter because they are warming and because they provide a great deal of moisture to dry and cracked skin. Because the treatments are meant to be soothing, calming oils are often added to the wax in order to add a dimension of aromatherapy to the experience. Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils known for its relaxing effects

People who experience season dry skin often find paraffin wax treatments to be helpful and relaxing preventative measures.

Aromatherapy Massage

I was reading a book about the SPA services and it said if you never had a massage, you don't know what you are missing. It is so true, and I dare to say that it have even a better taste when it is an aromatherapy massage.

Facial is an incredible pampering service

It is really important to use the magnifying lamp to observe skin condition/problem.

Deep cleansing is important to remove oils, makeup residue and dirt.

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface, and has been used for many years to help maintain the skin. It is recommended to do it frequently especially during the winter. There are types of exfoliation like chemical and mechanical.
Benefits of steam open your pores, improve your circulation, helps in removing dirt and oils, allows for deep cleansing and is very helpful for extractions and working on acne and blackheads

Applying the right mask that suits your skin types.

Massage is a beautiful experience that my clients enjoy.

Pedicure is much more than a beautiful design

Pedicure is not only a beautiful personal appearance it is a service that adds comfort & wellness to your feet.
The word pedicure comes from the Latin word which means foot care.
A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails; usually dead skin cells on the bottom of feet are rubbed off using a rough stone or foot paddle. And a half leg massage is what makes the pedicure a pleasant relaxing experience which keeps a client coming back to this beautiful service.

"Mademoiselle" makeover

Prom night beauty involves much more than simply buying a dress. And for your daughter to stand out at her prom, you will also need to beautify her to perfection. And as an aesthetician I have the beauty secrets. Just ask me; makeover, manicure, pedicure and believe it or not I can do hair too.

Brows/Lashes tinting

Brows/lashes are enhanced using tint

Lashes/ brows are enhanced creating a naturally flattering look using only gentle vegetables dyes. Tinting and shaping can enhance your eyes.

Lash tinting can replace daily mascara application (although mascara can be worn), and people who think they "don't see their brows" are always complimented and amazed at what a difference a bit of color and adjusting the shape of the brows can make.

Tinting might make a huge difference to your eyes. Brows are broders for your beautiful eyes. The bonus is that you don't have to wear mascara every day

Tint is only gentle vegtables dyes and totally safe. It is good for temporary period of time which varies between 4-6 weeks based on your activiteis. Ususally washing your face won't fade color but the use of different products may.
