I met Kristen 5 years ago, she was working at the same salon as my husband. I started going to Kristen for her amazing waxing. I am a stickler when it come to brows, and I had found my perfect match with Kristen. I had always somewhat struggled with acne throughout my life. It wasn't ever something that prevented me from going out or really hindering how I felt about myself; but I always would 2-3 pimples on my face - ALWAYS. Kristen would give me the best advice when I would be in there for my waxes - vitamins/supplements to take, foods to stay away from, different makeup companies to use. She would always encourage me to make an appointment to have a skin analysis done, but I kept putting it off. Two years ago, my skin got worse - a lot worse. I had tons of breakouts everywhere. All over my forehead, neck, cheeks, it was horrible. I finally had enough and made a consultation appointment with Kristen for a skin analysis. That day changed my life. I received the most helpful packet on skin care - things I need to be doing at home and using. The information in that packet alone was so awesome. But there was more. She did a treatment on me and sent me home with an at-home skin care regimen. Within weeks my skin was so much better. Within a month my skin was almost flawless. I know healing times will be different for everyone, but after the first treatment and using the home skin care regimen, I noticed a big difference. Now, I said I've always lived with acne and at some point in my life, it got really bad. For the first time EVER, I don't have to live with acne. I had never been able to leave the house without foundation or concealer on... I do all the time now. My mornings are not spent in the mirror trying to hide blemishes, I don't have to carry concealer in my purse - I have no need for it! For someone who's always "dealt with" having breakouts since high school, this is unbelievable to me. Like I said before, it changed my life. Kristen is so fantastic! She is understanding, so knowledgeable, gentle, caring... I could go on and on. I could not live without her. She has honestly changed how I view myself and I'm sure how others view me too. To give someone the gift of confidence in themselves, is magical - that's what she has done for me. My only regret is not starting the program with her sooner! I wasted years "living with" acne when I could have been living WITHOUT it! Thank you, Kristen, for being the best at what you do. My face, and heart, are forever grateful.
