Tova Galgut of Tova’s Beautique & Wellness Center enlists her triple-threat credentials as a massage therapist, aesthetician, and electrologist to heal and beautify clients from the inside out. The tissue mender uses a slew of massage modalities, from deep-tissue kneads to hand-and-foot reflexology, to create custom massage recipes that fit each of her client’s needs. As an aesthetician, Tova rejuvenates visages with cleansing European facials and acne treatments designed specifically for teenage skin. The beauty purveyor also attacks unwanted fuzz with swift face and body waxings or suggests a more permanent solution in the form of electrolysis, which permanently wards off growing hair no matter the phase of the moon.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am an experienced Brazilian waxer with almost 10,000 Brazilians under my 8 years of being a California licensed esthetician. I am a gentle yet FAST and thorough with every client I see! If your looking for a local waxer who is experienced and affordable give me a try today!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always loved the skincare industry! After almost 7 years working for a high volume clientele day spa I decided it was time to break off on my own. My goal with every client I meet is to exceed they're expectations and work diligently to help achieve each client's skin care goals.
What do you love most about your job?
I love how result oriented waxing can be! The dramatic difference an eyebrow wax can make to the look of someone's face. Or the happiness you give someone when you help clear up they're adult acne or hyperpigmentation.
I love helping people feel great about their skin. Healthy skin is glowing skin.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Most of my clients comment on how fast I can get their wax done. The typical first time client feedback usually goes something like, "that's wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it was going to be." no Brazilian is a walk in the park,
but with me as your esthetician it's pretty dang close!
Age Spots: Shade from the Sun
Some facials can help fade age spots. Learn more about how those spots appear with Groupon's examination.
Sun spots. Liver spots. Solar lentigines. No matter what you call them, those flat gray, brown, and black spots on the skin come from the same place: space. Specifically, the sun. All skin color is the result of a pigment called melanin produced in the epidermis. Each person's skin produces melanin at certain rate, but ultraviolet rays from the sun accelerate that process, which creates a darker, tanned appearance. Over years, melanin can become particularly concentrated in one area and clump together to form age spots, typically on the hands, face, shoulders, and other areas regularly exposed to sunlight. (Freckles are produced through a similar process, but their formation is much more strongly predicted by genetics and by whether you're dressing up as Raggedy Ann for Halloween this year.)
Age spots are ultimately harmless, but there are many ways to treat their appearance. Prescription-strength and over-the-counter creams use retinol or hydroquinone to make the spots gradually fade over time. Laser treatments target melanin-producing cells directly, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels remove the top layer of skin altogether, taking discoloration with it. People also seek out cryotherapy to freeze the offending areas, destroying the excess pigment as the skin heals.
