As an aesthetician, my piece of the makeover was to improve her skin.  Coralea hadn't really used professional products and had never received peels or microdermabrasion treatments.  She didn't really have major skin concerns except for that she wanted to take the correct steps to maintain healthy skin and preventative measures against aging.  She had dry skin with slight sun damage. 

My goal was to even her texture and start stimulating some collagen as our collagen breaks down rapidly in our 40's.  We did a professional treatment each month varying between lactic acid peels, trychloric acids peels, microdermabrasions, and oxygen treatments.  Each treatment helped to reduce the sun damage, stimulate her collagen & help carry nutrients thru her blood to her cells.  This has given her such a healthy glow; she looks amazing! 

In addition to her monthly treatments I put Coralea on a homecare regimen using PCASkin care products.   She has been using a face wash with alpha hydroxy acids for deep pore cleansing and exfoliation, a 20% vitamin C for collagen stimulation, a pigment gel for reducing sun damage, a retinol renewal for cell turnover and a broad spectrum sunscreen for complete sun protection against UVA & UVB rays.   Coralea was completely diligent in her homecare and it shows in her skin! 


Coralea's take: 

Every session with Darla started with a smile and ended with a hug. I learned so much about my skin and how to care for it, I was introduced to a skin care product line PCA. It has been a wonderful routine for my skin, and I have received many compliments on how healthy my skin looks since I started the program five months ago!

Darla has been very motivating and supportive through this whole venture. I can not thank her enough for the wonderful facial treatments, eyebrow waxing, and skin care products.

Thank you Darla,
