Andrea is amazing; I think she’s more than someone who can help your skin, she can actually improve your mental health. For me, my skin had been breaking out terribly since I was 12. It’s gotten better since I got out of my teens, but it was still a mess. That’s about 25 years of being really upset with my skin and how I look. Which is an exhausting way to live and feel about yourself.
Andrea is a total pro, her space is calming but not some over the top ultra chic spa, which I actually grew to prefer. She’s lovely, and a pleasure to work with. (And trust me, I have been difficult a few times, as I was frustrated with my skin!) Her facials are so relaxing and effective. I’m aglow afterwards. She convinced me to try the Osmosis products, and I can’t say they’re my favorite I’ve ever tried, but she had a great point, “it doesn’t matter how much you love the feel or smell of your favorite product, if you don’t like your skin, they’re not working for you!” Truth. My skin texture improved immediately and the acne has been clearing significantly over the last year. Yes, when my stress and anxiety levels are are a max, I still get zits, but it’s so so much better. I even took a photo of my skin every month to make sure it was true, and the proof is there.
Not that I think you can put a price on your happiness, but of course it costed. And I found it to be worth every penny. And in fact, I went back and looked at my credit card statement for the past two years. I spent nearly identical amounts of money at Andrea’s and at Sephora. Only at Andrea’s I got about 10 facials along with all the products, which were an relaxing paradise, and at Sephora I spend a fortune trying dozens of new products that never worked or made things worse. I think it’s way better to have clear skin then having to buy and wear a bunch of makeup to cover up bad skin. It’s no contest. Andrea wins.

I’ve been working with Andrea for several years now. She is knowledgeable, warm, and Ah-mazing for all skin-care needs. At this point, I just trust her to do whatever type of facial she feels that I need, based on where I am in life. Our first focus was eliminating sunspot – within 6 months most were gone. I don’t recall what magic she did the months prior to my wedding but my skin was glowing and shimmery day-off. Now our focus is on anti-aging and wrinkles. Thank you, Andrea!
Exceptional facial! I had a microcurrent facial, and I was really impressed with Andrea’s use of the microcurrent to help tone and lift the skin. She really seems to know how the underlying musculature works, and how to get the most optimal lifting effect. I’ve had microcurrent facials before from another aesthetician, and they did not do the same thing; it wasn’t nearly as targeted. Right after the facial, I could literally see a difference in my face. Amazing! I am definitely going back!

I’ve been seeing Andrea for about a year now and my skin is the healthiest it’s been in years. I’ve had acne since I was a pre-teen and have tried so many treatments, including acutane (twice) and other antibiotic/topical prescriptions and her facials have been the best/most consistent. She customizes her approach to your skins needs and is always considering new options. She also gives great advice on other products/treatments/tactics you can use to improve your skin. She’s the best!
I am totally sold on Andrea’s services and the products she has studied and uses. After too many years of sun tanning and the inevitable aging process, Andrea has given my skin new life. My skin tone is brighter and my skin texture is smoother. I recently went to a dermatologist run cosmetic center for an injectable skin filler consult (something Andrea doesn’t do). Although I was satisfied with the consult, that office approached skin care in a very cookie cutter fashion. I am sold on Andrea!
