Dedicated aesthetician Doran Poma combines her extensive training with top pampering products to conjure beautiful, healthy countenances at Doran Poma Skincare. Poma begins with a consultation to hear her client's goals, map the terrain of their unique skinscape, and devise a plan for cellular renewal. Each treatment is as unique as a snowman's freckles, incorporating cleansers, puffs of steam, and exfoliation to prep pores for targeted extractions or a creamy mask. Nimble fingers knead tension from shoulders and necks, iron wrinkled tissues along hands and arms, or smooth away lines from foreheads like a sixth grader erasing chalkboards in detention. A warm cup of tea and a personalized skincare plan send clients out the door refreshed and prepared to continue beautification at home.
Alternately, over the course of two hours, Poma dexterously adheres synthetic lash extensions one-by-one to existing hairs, keeping tender skin untethered and dispatching with the need for mascara. Varying lengths and colors fill in gaps between thin threads or create a sparkling fringe to coax angler fish up from ocean trenches. Extensions generally last from two to four weeks, and can adorn peepers for up to eight weeks.
Doran Poma Skincare
After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager. Since completing beauty school in 2006 and becoming a licensed aesthetician in 2007, Doran has used her expertise to clear the complexions of numerous clients, including a woman in her 50s who'd been dealing with acne since her teens. This April, Doran began running her skincare operation out of a gut-rehabbed salon, where she uses phytomer and Jan Marini products to pamper clients with specialized facials designed to treat conditions ranging from acne and discoloration to wrinkles in the time-space continuum.
