Meet JaieCie, Your Advanced Skin Care Specialist!

JaieCie boasts over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, with a particular focus on skin care. Her commitment to her clients’ needs and objectives enables her to help them achieve their skincare goals with long-term results.

One of JaieCie’s favorite treatments is the Dermaplaning procedure combined with the Platinum HydraFacial. This highly effective treatment removes impurities and dead skin cells while simultaneously replenishing the skin with essential nutrients. Specialized boosters tailored to the skin’s needs, along with red and blue light therapy, are used to achieve maximum results.
The Dermaplaning Facial, in particular, is a must-try. It eliminates unwanted Vellus hair, allowing the skin to absorb antioxidants and peptides from moisturizers and serums more effectively. Exfoliation and cell turnover are essential to maintaining youthful and healthy-looking skin, as it creates a smooth, hydrated surface for makeup application, saving time and effort.

JaieCie spends her free time traveling and with loved ones. She believes that healthy skin is the result of consistent appointments and personalized care. Schedule an appointment with JaieCie today to unlock her expertise and achieve glowing, radiant skin.
