A note from Alison:

When you step into my treatment room, know that you are entering a grounded, safe space where you are wholeheartedly accepted exactly as you are.  My clients often refer their friends & family to me saying, “they need your magic touch.”

I have practiced meditation and energy work since 1992 and have been an esthetician since 2008.  My esthetics training covers all skin types, ethnicities, and skin conditions within my scope of practice.  Continuing education is important to me, and I attend several trainings each year.

Our Holistic Approach to Your Care

We see you as the whole person you are.  Your diet, lifestyle and skin care routine all contribute to the health of your skin. 
Each facial starts with a relaxing aromatherapy treatment and an emphasis on facial, scalp, neck and shoulder massage throughout your treatment will help drain the stress from body and mind.
We honor the investment you’ve made in skin care products and schedule time to discuss home care recommendations at the end of your service.  If your current products are working for you, we won’t change a thing.  If your current products aren’t giving you the results you desire, we’ll make personalized recommendations and ensure you’re on the path to vibrant skin.
When you partner with Skin Care by Alison, you can always send us a text or email asking if a specific product or device would work for your skin.   We’ll take a look at the ingredients and let you know if it will work for you.  We ask that you give us 24-hours to review and get back to you.

Why Choose Skin Care by Alison?

  • You want a personalized service and experience.
  • You want glowing, healthy skin, and deep relaxation for a calm mind and body.
  • You want the best of both worlds:  a clinical treatment using natural, vegan products that feels like a spa day.
  • You want to feel better at the end of your appointment than when you arrived.
  • You need a treatment that works for your specific concerns.
  • You’re tired of wasting time and money on products that don’t work for you.
  • You don’t want to be sold to while on the spa table (we have this in common). 

What to Expect With Skin Care by Alison

  • The time listed for each service is the time we spend on your treatment.  Expect to spend an additional 15-20 minutes with us beyond your treatment time to allow for Q&A, to discuss your skin care needs, goals, home care and checking out.  We believe you deserve the full treatment time.
  • Our intake form asks about your skin, products used and lifestyle because these affect the health of your skin (lifestyle includes diet, stress levels, and how much you move/exercise).  
  • If all you want is to relax, let us know and we will turn up the relaxation and hold off on the skin care talk until after your treatment.
  • Professional, vegan products and services that are customized to your skin’s needs every single time.
  • When you have questions on skin care products & tools, you can always text or email your questions.  While it is impossible to be well versed with the thousands of skin care lines on the market, we are experts on ingredients and skin types/conditions.  We’ll look up the ingredient deck of the product or the tool and let you know if it will work specifically for you.  You can also tag us on social media and ask, “Is this #AlisonApproved”

This is a place for you to relax, detox, unwind and feel safe. Always.
