Although Michelle White earned certifications at Honors Beauty College that showcase her deft, gentle hands, the massages and facials she delivers at Chez Michelle Skin Spa also incorporate the healing power contained within her arsenal of supplementary tools. The licensed massage therapist’s repertoire of therapeutic strokes and stretches benefits from her understanding of SASTM therapy, which detoxifies bodies with the combined might of modern sonic technology and ancient Chinese cupping techniques. After a quick skin analysis, White uses the results of her research to craft custom facials with Jan-Marini-Skin-Research products, treating blemishes with ingredients like hyalronic acid—a healing agent that abounds in youthful skin. White’s Palomar IPL lasers promote cellular rejuvenation and nix unwanted hair, and her mechanical exfoliators help buff away Sharpie mustaches the hair was there to cover up.
