What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Face Forward treats each client with respect and genuine care for their well being. I listen to their needs and personalize the facial to create a fresh, glowing look they desire. The face, neck and shoulder massage allows them time to heal the mind and body. This package truly awakens your face.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Caring for people comes natural, combining this with the dramatic results my facials, waxing & eyelash extensions produce was a no brainer. I truly care for each person and the result they are looking for is my mission. Everyone deserves to take care of themselves, if I can help, then I am happy.
What do you love most about your job?
I truly love meeting new people and allowing them the opportunity to explain their areas of concern. The best part is watching a client relax and take in everything I give. Seeing the results from the facial and waxing is amazing. Helping people shed dead skin and glow is my top priority. I Love it!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My clients trust me and know the results from the facial last and don't go unnoticed. When they get compliments, it fills me with joy knowing they feel good about their appearance. When a client leaves in a relaxed fog I now I have helped someone have a better day. People deserve to be pampered!
Within the pampering confines of Diva's Beauty Studio, aesthetician Monica Hernandez makes it her mission to help clients feel their best. Her skincare treatments include intensive PCA Skin chemical peels, which exfoliate dead skin to liberate the glowing dewiness beneath. Her pumice-assisted microdermabrasion offers a gentler take on exfoliation, and her de-stress facial aims to gently replenish guests' energy and lift their moods. Other facials include the classic facial, the vitamin C facial, and the back facial, which clears dorsal pores and keeps wings clean. Monica also waxes, keeping faces and bodies free of unwanted hair.
Certified massage practitioner Ian Edwards prefers to use firmer massage techniques, which are better at targeting pain and tension deep within muscles. At his spa, Five Point Palm Massage, he maneuvers between Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and other modalities to customize each massage to the needs of the customer. He can also focus on specific areas of pain such as the back, neck and shoulders, or legs and feet.
Working under board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David S. Goldberg, Monterey Skin Fitness Center’s licensed aestheticians work to halt the march of time with an array of skin-plumping peels and injections. Aestheticians offer guidance during every step of each treatment with a full evaluation and explanations for postpeel care. The 30–45 minute MicroPeel curbs breakouts, smooths wrinkles, and conditions and protects formerly fraught faces to maintain a freshly peeled appearance. The peel's immediate results make it ideal for a last-minute spruce on the way to extreme staring contests. Refinity peels take about 30 minutes to renew skin with a gentle application of glycolic acid, while protecting it with Cosmederm-7, a patented anti-irritation ingredient that reduces postpeel grouchiness for sensitive skin. Treat pimple-prone pores with a Vi peel, which lifts away scum, sun spots, and the appearance of scars while firming the skin. The 20-minute Vi peel yields visible results after about four days; results are maximized over multiple treatments.
