A teacher overwhelmed with classroom tasks and student responsibilities; a 20-something recovering from the insecurities of teenage acne—Charlie Ward has served them both. Like many who write in his patient testimonials, this pair praises the master aesthetician's professional skill and personal kindness. "Having healthy habits, including good skincare," Charlie writes on his website, "[has] helped me enjoy [life] even more." Charlie pebbles his path to healthier, more vibrant skin with services that range from the technologically advanced photofacial treatment, which uses intense pulsed light to improve sun-damaged skin, to the holistic scrub-and-rub massages, which dose backs and bodies with salt crystals from the Great Salt Lake before hot towels and lotions cleanse and refresh. He also stays up-to-date on his industry's latest trends and technologies, writing on his blog about some of the latent effects of tattoos and new breakthroughs in heat-resistant makeup that prove ideal for soldiers fighting in war zones or chefs cooking in full-body snowsuits.
