 Esthetics

  • Jutona
    I am an Illinois state licensed esthitician. After 18 years of being a cosmetologist I decided to go back to school and pursue my esthetics license. I am overjoyed to have found my passion for skincare and to be able to help my clients achieve their best skin possible. I have worked with Bioelements products and greatly enjoy the anti-aging aspects of the product line. Aside from facials, I love performing microdermabrasions and chemical peels as those are great tools for anti-aging but also address other skin care issues. I am also extremely knowledgable in facial and body waxing. I make sure to always meet each of my clients individual needs!
