Within the tranquil, spa-like atmosphere of Fleur de Paris Skin Care Institute, aesthetician and native Frenchwoman Sylvie Sevrain is working with serious science. The skincare expert has a PhD in skin biology and cosmetology and has done research on the effects of hormones on skin-aging prevention. Sevrain has worked for major cosmetic firms. She's also a member of the Dermatology Skin Care Specialists and the Society of Cosmetic Chemists. But upon listening to her French accent in an atmosphere that, according to Palm Beach – Live Work Play, is "painted a soft, robin’s egg blue with beautifully hand painted floral décor," guests are more likely to think of Juliette Binoche than Marie Curie.
Sevrain continually draws on her expansive knowledge while caring for the complexions of men, women, and teens. She performs classic French facials or specialized treatments with products such as Environ, a plastic-surgeon-developed line that nourishes the skin with vitamins and alpha-hydroxy acids. Sevrain can diminish wrinkles as a certified Bellanina-facelift massage specialist, and offers advanced treatments including chemical peels and ultrasonic therapy. She and her team pamper bodies with fragrant scrubs, hot-stone massages, and waxing services that are ideal for clients heading to the beach or American werewolves heading to Paris.
