Sara Elizabeth Skincare & Nail Boutique
Sara Elizabeth Skincare & Nail Boutique founder Sara Elizabeth Kuite has traveled the country to build her acute knowledge of bodily betterments, studying specialized skincare in New York City with celebrity facialist Ling Chan and scaling the Rocky Mountains to learn Japanese kobido massage techniques under sensei master Shogo Mochizuki. Today, she fuses Eastern ideas with Western technology in her current practice, which places an emphasis on deep healing and prevention of unnecessary epidermal wear. Her highly trained eyes carefully scan skin to spot specific conditions and create a personalized skincare regimen for each individual, and she gives each patient the time and attention they need to learn how to use products correctly and finally set the clocks on their VCRs.
Celery green walls and white overstuffed chairs provide a tranquil setting for all services, which include everything from anti-aging, hydrating, or exfoliating facials to hair removal with sugar paste or blue chamomile wax. Clients awaiting treatment may soothe sore eyes by browsing through a boutique stocked with raw vegan skincare products from brands such as Astara and Priori and high-powered CoffeeBerry antioxidant, or wander over to the elixir bar to nourish bodies and wilted houseplants with phytonutrient-rich beverages.
The staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant.Kimberly W., Yelp, 5/7/10
