A new aesthetic spa called SkinSpirit opened up in the University Village mall in Seattle. This spa chain is based out of California with several established locations there as well as two other locations in the Seattle/Bellevue area of Washington. There are a lot of good reviews on yelp, and I was curious about what an "aesthetic spa" was, so I was glad to be invited to this opening party to learn more.
There was an assortment of wines, sparkling water and trays of hors d'oeuvres, as well as a tower of mini cupcakes. Mini cupcakes make every party better, in my opinion:
I met Lynn Heublein the CEO of SkinSpirit and Cynthia Woods, the clinic manager of the University Village Location. Both ladies were super nice. Lynn is gorgeous and very personable. Cynthia is also gorgeous (I'm sensing a theme here....) and had the nicest eyeliner application I've ever seen.
Cynthia said that most of the clientele is educated by the spa in what the treatments offer. When you book an initial appointment it is more open ended as to what you will end up doing since they want to see your skin in person first.
At the party they had on going procedures happening in their treatment rooms, so you could see real clients and what it was like to have a procedure. I didn't see any facials, although they do offer them at SkinSpirit. There was a sign outside each room with info on what was happening in that room and there were reps from the different companies near by to answer questions.
This lady was getting some type of injectable treatment. When she was walking around the party afterwards and you couldn't see any red marks or anything that would indicate she had just had something done:
There was an empty room, so I checked it out. Hard-hitting investigative journalism:
Everyone received a nice swag bag full of products sold at SkinSpirit to try, as well as some gift certificates to use at SkinSpirit, a haircut at Seven salon, a hair color appointment at Headlines Salon, a free mocha at Fran's Chocolates and a Trophy cupcake.
I am going to use my SkinSpirit certificate for a facial because that is what I am interested in trying. I've never had a professional facial, so I'm looking forward to it. I'll let you know how it goes!
