Located inside the expansive My Salon Suite plaza of beautifiers, Snootie's treatment suite is decked out in neutral greens and deep woods where tranquility wraps each guest in its embrace before an aesthetician gets to work on exposing skin to enriching therapies. Utilizing over 14 years of experience, licensed estheticians lavishes each client with individual attention during waxing, facials, or microdermabrasion treatments, fighting the stubborn signs of aging with elite glo-therapeutics products or depilating fuzz still vacationing on legs for the winter.
In Louisiana, all aestheticians endure at least 750 grueling hours of cosmetology schooling before they can obtain a license. Difficult scientific classes aren’t part of the required curriculum, but they were essential for Elite Skin Suite’s Lessie. After obtaining her cosmetology license back in 1978, the aesthetician became completely enamored with skin. So she headed to Tulane College and enrolled in classes such as genetics, mutation, and cellular biology, all in hopes of truly understanding the ins and outs of her favorite organ.
So far, her schooling has served Lessie well. For more than 30 years, she has helped clients of all ages maintain healthy skin with treatments tailored to their individual needs. Every service at Elite Skin Suite begins with a complimentary assessment, which gives Lessie the knowledge she needs to administer any one of a dozen or so of the facial treatments in her repertoire, including glycolic-acid peels, LED therapy, and detoxifying acne facials. And though most spas and licking puppies tend to focus on the face, Lessie focuses her aesthetic eye on the whole body with cellulite wraps, coconut-infused hydration treatments, and waxing.
