Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for healing. Essential oils are concentrated extracts taken from the roots, leaves, seeds, or blossoms of plants. Each contains its own mix of active ingredients, and this mix determines what the oil is used for. Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes for nearly 6,000 years. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes, and drugs. Essential oils were also commonly used for spiritual, therapeutic, hygienic, and ritualistic purposes.

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment for rejuvenating the skin without the need for surgical facelifts. The treatment removes the upper layers of damaged and dying skin cells, which tend to give skin an overall dull appearance and betray signs of sun damage. During this procedure, the top layer of the epidermis is removed. Dead skin cells are subsequently vacuumed up, revealing healthy skin. The whole procedure is quick and painless, generally taking 30-45 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin. This treatment can be used to target specific problems like dark spots on face, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation induced by pregnancy.

  • Studying esthetics almost 10 years ago was the best decision of my life! I had been practicing law for 12 years, but I was very unhappy. So, I kept my job and started the part-time evening program to pursue my passion for skin care. I am currently in my 8th year of business as the owner of a top laser center in Midtown Manhattan.
