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.
Drawing on her medical background, Marlene Fortney transmits youthful brightness back into clients' features with skin-refining treatments in an intimate spa setting, located inside Conter Fleurette a Beauty Affair Day Spa. Her spa service menu centers on the face in a range of treatments that incorporate creams rich in antioxidants, deep-cleansing ultrasound rays, and enzyme exfoliants that gently whisk away roughened fa?ades like a brick-wall repossession. For more intense skin restructuring, Marlene can draw on a retinue of high-powered treatments, such as glycolic-acid peels or diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments that work to unveil smooth complexions from beneath dull skin cells. The specialist also brandishes waxing treatments that span from faces to feet to rid bodies of unwanted hair or sculpt brows into arches sharp enough to pop double-entendres in midair.
The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies.

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.
