Crystal Vargas knows that beauty is more than skin-deep. That’s why the licensed aesthetician doesn’t haphazardly slather her client’s skin with a few lotions and call it a day. Instead, she uses custom skincare regimes to boost confidence, and ultimately beauty, from the inside out. Crystal doles out face and body treatments, from a refreshing facial that uses steam to restore skin’s natural glow to designer peels that gradually diminish pigmentation. She also helps newly rejuvenated skin really steal the spotlight with waxing treatments for the face and body, and cancan lessons for shy legs.
