They offer post-treatment techniques to extend their effects, such as suggesting particular creams to reduce acne and avoiding naps in garden ponds to escape that pruney skin look.
Erica Loren has a passion for skincare that she has pursued ever since earning an aesthetician's license in 2004. She now holds a dual license in standard and medical aesthetics after years working with prestigious doctors in the Washington, DC area. In her eponymous spa, she draws on these experiences to share her aesthetic talents with stressed clients. Loren continually seeks out new training to learn the best ways to remove unwanted hair with organic wax or moisturize and detoxify the skin with fine mud grains and seaweed wraps. She sets facial skin aglow using products from G.M. Collin and the clinically validated Jan Marini Skin Research. Using the FDA-approved derma roller, Loren can also reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and cellulite by way of microneedling, which pesters collagen on a cellular level until it finally gets back to work.
The proprietor of The White Peacock named her salon after a unique animal that, despite its unadorned feathers, often draws more oohs and aahs than its more ostentatious kin.

Here, a skilled aesthetician reveals her clients' own natural good looks through facials, artful waxing, and herbal body retexurization treatments. Add-on services fight acne and the signs of aging, and brow tweezing sculpts eyebrows into arches, tapered lines, or Morse code messages. To improve features even further, she also delivers makeup applications, lash extensions, and lash tinting.
