My name is Yvonne, and I am a Medical Aesthetician, who holds certificates in Dermaplaning, Microdermabrasion, Microneedling, Hydrafacial MD, Chemical Peels, Reflexology and Lash Extensions. I am also a practicing dental hygienist of more than 20 years, but I had always wanted to work in the beauty industry. So, two years ago, I started to chase my dream. I’ve learned so much since then and am excited to pass on that knowledge to my clients.
Outside of work, you can usually find me with my two fur babies. I also spend lots of time in my garden, tending to the orchids. I’m a Michigan native who never forgets her roots, but Florida has been my home for many years now. I love meeting new clients and helping them obtain healthy, vibrant skin so they can feel and look their best.
My name is Sybil Shahriari and I have been in and out of the beauty industry for over 25 years. I decided to focus on skin care and returned to school where I received my esthetics license as a skin care specialist. I believe in holistic health and wellness.
The key to feeling good and looking good are self care, premium products, service, techniques, knowledge, and patience.
