I am honored to be a part of About Face Spa. I take pride in my surroundings and an atmosphere that is serious about helping individuals who are seeking the best attention from an establishment. I am passionate about skin and skilled in the medical industry part of the profession. I coordinate my time between the Dermatology center and this highest skilled spa in the Detroit area. I give each individual personal attention to their skin care needs. My expertise in working with a local chemist with pure and fresh ingredients has allowed me to evaluate what is the best application to improve almost any type of a skin care concern. I am licensed Esthetician and certified in skin diseases. I am also an educator in chemical peels. Every step is crucial to the outcome of a “perfect peel”. That is why I came up with a perfect C peel with no down time. Acne and Aging skin can be challenging without the proper tools and professional help needed. Therefore, It is my passion that helps address the concerns with a great outcome for the individual. A positive approach is to give the time with myself to help improve your skin inside and out.
