I made an appointment for a 90 minute facial at Ambrosia MedSpa & Wellness (across from Juanita Village Starbucks) because-hey- it was the last week of school for the kids so it might be my last moment of silence and self-indulgence for a few months. And what a treat it was!
I did some quick and easy paperwork before Maren Brown, medical aesthetician, whisked me into her room and the magic began. She cleansed my face with a Clarisonic before the microdermabrasian which felt like a small mechanical sander sloughing off all that old dry skin that used to make me look like I was 87. Maren's music was a relaxing mix off of her own playlist which didn't include dribbling waterfalls which I was thankful for (cuz they make me feel like I have to pee).
A series of steaming, warming, sponging, painting, extracting, massaging and small rhythmic circling with Eminence Organic Skin Care products (decolletage and hands too) was so heavenly I woke myself up with a giant snore! Which is always embarrassing but Maren rightfully understood this as a true sign of a job well done. Which I also felt when I looked at my glowing shining face of healthy aftermath and thought, "there's hope for me yet! Thanks Maren!"
Ambrosia MedSpa & Wellness has had a new owner since January, Stacie Lindal. Stacie was a corporate HR Director for 16 years but always had a passion for skincare. When she decided to pursue her dream of running a skincare business, she chose Ambrosia because "...she loved the staff. it just felt RIGHT." Ambrosia has been around since 2008 and Stacie has kept much of the staff in place.
Ambrosia offers an array of spa services such as facials, laser hair removal, photo-facials, microdermabrasian and skin re-firming. This may sound like Greek to you youngsters out there, but words to the wise: pay attention now for what awaits around the corner. They also have a family doctor, Dr. Vern Cherewatenko on site three days a week. He is able to help with things such as B-12 shots, bio-identical hormones, ADHD, sports physicals and general health. Dr. Alexander Sobel is an aesthetic injector and is double board certified in General Cosmetic Surgery and Otolaryngology/Facial Plastic Surgery. This is one stop shopping to the fountain of youth and wellness in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Not even halfway into summer and I am missing Maren already. There's a special offer too, of course, for first time clients (one per client) you can enjoy the "Triple Beauty Treat", which is 3 treatments for $150. You can join their email list here to stay up to date on all the monthly specials. Feel free to check them out- good stuff awaits you! 425-814-3235 ~j
