Owner Colleen Elizabeth is a highly-sought after trainer of California aestheticians, known for her knowledge and expertise in the beauty industry. Colleen practices what she’s been preaching to other spa owners for years.
Colleen’s approach is to look beyond the customary one-time, epidermal treatments to address an individual’s health and beauty needs in a holistic manner, “it’s the only way to achieve any lasting results.”
Health-care routines begin in adolescence, when hormones can wreak havoc on not just teenaged skin but budding self-esteem. Colleen, who once suffered from acute acne, often works with dermatologists to address the physical and emotional pain associated with severe skin problems. Her success ratio is high, as her clients attest.
Colleen begins by inquiring about the client’s health history, beauty habits and personal goals. Colleen encourages clients to bring in their home-care products so she can evaluate their effect on a client’s skin and health. This unique service is not found in your average spa.
Once an analysis has been made taking all aspects of the individual into consideration, long-term treatment is suggested, ranging from muscle-toning therapy to medical make-up. “Some of my clients can’t afford regular spa visits, so I sometimes prescribe a home-care regime,” says Colleen.
Men and women of all ages have benefited from this customized approach. Those women in their twenties craving a sun-kissed look will be re-educated about proper skin care, vitamin treatments, body bronzing and other solutions to prevent sun-damaged skin. College co-eds and brides-to-be favor colleenelizabeths’ Brazilian Waxes, a specialty that Colleen teaches to West Coast spa professionals.
