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.
The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies. Though male patrons are welcome to attend in the company of a spouse or significant other, beauty specialists direct their skills toward administering facials, waxes, and homeopathic treatments to patrons with two X chromosomes or Scrabble pieces. The beauty specialists prove their dedication to creating a stress-free oasis by setting up each service with an appointment, which guarantees that each client receives the unhurried, personalized attention typically reserved for slow-motion tickle fights. Outside of her skincare business, Madison Mohrr - who recently celebrated 25 years of being cancer free - works with breast cancer awareness groups in Fresno.
