What Others Have to Say About Colleen
I have had massive breakouts disappear overnight after a treatment with Colleen. She has recommended several new products to me that after three months I can truly say have completely changed my skin, and now I can’t live without them. I don’t even live in the area anymore but when I am in town visiting family I always make a point to squeeze in time for a facial.

Colleen’s facials are AMAZING! She takes her time, consults with you, and does an amazing job. The dermaplaning facial left my skin glowing! Colleen is so knowledgeable, easy to talk to and genuinely cares about her clients.
– A.G, Livermore, CA
Colleen was very knowledgeable, she took the time to learn about my skin and preferences. She made some recommendations for me and explained each of the options very clearly. The products used on my skin left me feeling renewed. I loved the way Colleen massaged my face and neck during the facial, it was so relaxing and rejuvenating. I would recommend Colleen to anyone who is looking for a quality treatment. But the best thing is several people have commented on my skin after my facial.
