Although it's hard to tell by looking at Fabulous Esthetics owner Amanda Walthall's healthy complexion, she's had ample opportunities to put various skincare products to the test while treating her own epidermal concerns. This first-hand familiarity, paired with seven years spent working for medical spas throughout the Midwest, makes her a trustworthy skincare specialist—well versed in chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion practices. Fabulous Esthetics specializes in treating acne-prone or aging skin with the most effective products and services available, favoring ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin C squeezed from oranges by supermodels. Microdermabrasion treatments whisk away weathered skin cells, waxing services uproot hairs to leave skin smooth, and paraben-free airbrush tanning gilds bodies for up to 14 days.
Massage therapist Maribel Rodriguez has dedicated more than 10 years in the industry to bolster her healing powers and curate a tranquil treatment facility. Spa services are performed by Maribel and her staff of aestheticians and massage therapists and include specialty treatments that incorporate mechanical exfoliation, organic creams, and chemical solutions. The 50-minute organic facial combines steam and an organic fruit cleanser to open pores and clear them with paprika exfoliation, and hot stones glide across backs during gentle-healing massages. The team also specializes in peels, microdermabrasion, ear candling, and waxing services that remove hair more humanely than industrial-strength flypaper.

Amanda Walthall recently upgraded her business, Fabulous Esthetics, to incorporate two new locations and a range of additional services. Accordingly, she also enhanced her studio's name, now calling it Absolutely Fabulous Spa. She delivers the increased fabulousness through scientifically-influenced treatments, such as facials, massages, and sunless tanning. She uses time-tested products such as Hydradermie to soothe skin after full glycolic acid peels. She relaxes tense muscles with deep-tissue massages. She also helps people show off as much newly tanned skin as possible with full-body waxing services.
For more than a decade, licensed aesthetician Margaret Monticolombi has been pampering faces with holistic techniques. She draws on an arsenal of glo therapeutics products while performing services such as facials and peels, lash and brow tinting, and waxing. She also relies on a wide range of equipment, including ultrasonic devices, which beautify the skin before trips to the beach or a job throwing confidential documents into the sea.
