Like a triple-A baseball player getting called up to the big leagues, Skin Sensations founder Jennifer McRae was asked by EyeQBeauty to take her skills on the road as a master educator. In that capacity, the skilled aesthetician teaches other professionals about eyelashes and brows. At her spa, she practices what she teaches, joining her team of aestheticians to provide one-on-one care to help each client maintain visible, long-term results. To personalize treatments and make them feel like an indulgent experience rather than a chore, the staffers simply takes their time with each visitor. They don't rush clients or use expediencies at the expense of relaxation. They also get to know each client through complimentary skincare consultations, which help them determine the best techniques and treatments for facials and discern the appropriate products and types of wax.
Eleven facials grant patrons the opportunity to experience the aestheticians' above-and-beyond approach to treatments. These range from a simple microdermabrasion to the rejuvenating oxygen facial, which includes a european cleanse, skin analysis, chemical exfoliant, oxygen mask, moisturizer, and botanical, vitamin, mineral, and nutrient extracts. Several add-ons—such as a neck, back, and décolletage massage—are available to render facials more luxurious than a gown patched together with winning lottery tickets. Eyelash extensions, perming, and tinting take the transformation from skin to the eyes, for added definition and an incentive to break up with manual eyelash curlers.
