Phronsie has been a licensed aesthetician for 10 years but her love for skin and beauty started much earlier than that. She has always been fascinated with skincare and the relationship that it can have to help people to feel good about themselves. She believes that it is important to educate clients on the benefits of being healthy both inside and out. She accomplishes this by working with every client to develop a plan of action in order to achieve the desired result. With so many skin care products and treatments on the market many clients are left confused and spend money on products and treatments that may not be right for them. Phronsie specializes in results-oriented home skincare and customized facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, waxing and make up application.
