Licensed aesthetician Joanna Ferree isn't satisfied with merely making her clients look youthful and glowing on the outside, so she aims to nourish faces and boost self-esteem with individualized facials, microdermabrasion, and bridal makeovers.
Ferree has a prime opportunity to accentuate the stunning features of each specific client through the in-depth skin-and-lifestyle analysis that precedes every facial treatment. Based on the results, she treats specific conditions and brightens skin with custom skincare treatments and organic herbal preparations. She bases her custom facials in hydrotherapy and includes De La Terre Skincare products along with organic teas, salts, and serums. She furthers skin smoothness with waxing treatments for the face, legs, bikini, chest, and vestigial tail.
The experts at Supreme Skin?all licensed aestheticians?remove years from clients' faces with their microcurrent facials and fade cellulite and slim bodies with microcurrent body treatments. During beautifying sessions, they glide a conductive wand over faces and bodies, sending the gentle microcurrents deep into the skin.
There the microcurrents tone muscles, resulting in body contouring and the lifting of such areas as the jowels, abdomen, and buttocks. In addition to strengthening muscles, the noninvasive microcurrents promote the production of collagen and elastin, which smooth wrinkles and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections.
Asheville Hair Design has a flair for the dramatic. As the official hair and makeup designer of Asheville Lyric Opera since 2006, the styling and makeup team breathes life into rich theatrical personalities—such as Shakespeare's innocent Juliet, or Bizet's passionate Carmen—using combs, hair products, and cosmetics. At Asheville Hair Design, styling services enhance the natural beauty of each client, evoking the specific look that they desire. Patrons can opt for glamorous updos, body waxing, skin-smoothing microdermabrasion, or choose a relaxing massage to dismiss stress.
When licensed massage therapist and aesthetician Krystal Davis opened Zen Skincare & Waxing Studio, her goal was to create an oasis that fused the best elements of Eastern, Western, and med-spa healing treatments. Today, she aims to foster healthier lifestyles by administering full-body massages along with microdermabrasions and body wraps, though she feels her true specialty lies in hair-removal treatments. For the latter, she calls upon a variety of techniques and wax products to remove unwanted fuzz while keeping the client as comfortable as possible.
Using more than 15 years of experience, licensed cosmetologist Mia Nguyen endows clients' faces with makeup that won't wear off at the end of the day. Before applications, she applies a keen eye to facial structure, eye color, and skin tone and designs natural-looking eyebrows that complement the overall aesthetics of the face. Permanent eyeliner and eyelash extensions imbue pupils with pizazz, and lip shading redefines lip lines with full-color-lipstick emulation or barely there enhancements.
