Microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates the uppermost layer of skin to reveal fresh, healthy tissue underneath and stimulate cellular renewal over multiple sessions. Toner returns your complexion to the correct pH and moisturizer creates a protective barrier between the delicate surface and the air beyond. Alternatively, custom facials use an enzyme mask to get rid of dead cells, clearing the way for extraction and facial massage. The final round of serums is tailored to your skin concerns, which may include acne or aging. Facials conclude with revitalizing lip and eye treatments and an aromatherapeutic scalp massage.<p>
Blue Willow Skin Care
The relaxed, intimate feel of Blue Willow Skin Care reflects the warmth of owner and sole practitioner Gigi Walentiny, but belies her expertise as a facialist. Gigi is a registered nurse and licensed master aesthetician, and the only clue to her clinical background is the pristine cleanliness of the sage-green studio, whose floral-patterned armchairs and antique dressers suggest a welcoming living room. Your first conversation—to thoroughly review your health-history forms and skin-concern questionnaire—should reveal her rigorous background and skill at interpreting handwriting. She starts with a clean slate, generally cleansing the skin twice before nourishing complexions with clinical strength products, and scrupulously applies sunscreen before sending clients out the door. Gigi supports graceful aging by sidestepping cosmetic injections and time travel in favor of noninvasive rejuvenation therapies reliant on LED, chemical peels, and mechanical exfoliation. Attentive to pleasurable details, she frequently pairs her aesthetic arts with aromatherapy and massage.
