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.
As a veteran of the modeling and acting world, Carly Roarke understands the significance of maintaining a youthful, healthy appearance. The medical clinician, licensed in medical aesthetics and certified and trained in injectibles and laser technology, gleaned her beauty knowledge from years spent with makeup artists, photographers, dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and laser-wielding power-point presenters.
The spa-like clinic’s encyclopedic list of treatments ranges from traditional facials and chemical peels to laser vein correction, Botox, and dermal fillers. Carly can also lessen the effects of gravity, sun damage, and furrowed brows caused by repeated exposure to reality television with skincare products by brands such as Actifirm, iS Clinical Skincare, and Éminence Organics.

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.
