While the scientific world and natural world are often at odds, the staff at Aesthetic Skin Care Center have found a way for them to exist symbiotically by using technologically advanced treatments and scientifically formulated products to restore the skin's natural beauty. The European-trained, licensed aestheticians address blemishes and signs of aging with services such as IPL sessions or LED-light therapy, and employ the latest permanent-makeup techniques to enhance facial features. With more than 20 years of experience in the skincare industry, the team can also recommend an appropriate, product-based treatment, including a plant-derived Green Peel designed by Dr. Med. Christine Schrammek, to diminish sun damage, scars, and tired-looking skin caused by over-basting the face with turkey jus.
The inviting spa boasts a clean, modern ambience, thanks to white-on-white walls and cabinets, and glass shelves neatly lined with jars and bottles of Vie Collection, Jean D'Arcel, and Phytomer products.
