About Skin Trade Spa

At Skin Trade my mission is to take care of you and your skin. I started this business so that I could invite you into an environment that is relaxing, private and casual. I chose the name Skin Trade because following a good skin care regime with regular facials and home care using quality skin care product helps you trade in your "tired skin" for fresh, vibrant, alive skin. I am a registered nurse as well as a licensed esthetician and believe through education, good products and maintenance the sky's the limit when it comes to fabulous skin. Skin care is my passion and performing facials makes me feel as good as you feel.

I also want to help you look your best by removing unwanted hair through waxing. Waxing trumps shaving because skin stays smoother for longer and over time the hair becomes thinner and finer. Unwanted hair on the face: nose, ears, lip and chin respond well to waxing and it beats using tweezers in those areas. Ouch!

I have 10 years experience and specialize in full body waxing for men and women. The only area I won't wax is the top of the head. My experience with skin as a registered nurse keeps me aware of possible side effects of waxing and how to approach it so your skin is safeguarded. I use high quality Italian, Spanish and French wax and quality supplies and don't double dip. Sanitation is of utmost importance to me.

I have been awarded EXPERT Certification from Dermalogica, a professional prestigious standing earned by completing classes offered by the International Dermal Institute and successfully completing a written and practical exam, and carry Dermalogica skin care products which are made in the United States and guaranteed. They are available at the time of your treatment in my studio or you can order online via the link below.

This is what clients say about Dermalogica:

"I really love Dermalogica! Since I started using it, my skin is softer and healthier. People routinely tell me how great I look and how my skin "glows"! What I love about Dermalogica is that is leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized without a greasy feeling".
- Haven Q., San Diego, CA

I recommend Numb-IT for pre wax numbing; a few drops goes a long way and you apply it 15 to 20 minutes before. For those who are prone to ingrown hairs, PFB Vanish works great and is also good for clogged pores.

Thanks you for being part of my passion in helping men and women look and feel great about themselves.
