Kristy Harris & Stephanie Willis- Paradise Valley Skin Klinic

Local estheticians Kristy Harris and Stephanie Willis of Paradise Valley Skin Klinic have developed an exclusive facial treatment that combines all the best elements of the most sought-after facials called the “Celebrity Facial”. It’s a potent, long-lasting treatment that delivers the radiant, healthy glow every woman pines for, especially after a looong, hot summer.

The benefits from this treatment are extensive: it deep cleans, exfoliates, hydrates, soothes redness, treats inflammation, contracts pores, adds pure oxygen,vitamins and minerals to your face – not to mention it includes a paraffin hand treatment and a massage for your face, neck and shoulders !

Kristy invited me to have this amazing facial done and I couldn’t get there fast enough ! I confess, I am notoriously lax about scheduling regular facials; not because I don’t need one, but I just get busy and ignore my thirsty, dehydrated skin until it screams for attention. This facial seemed tailor-made for me and the results were amazing ! My skin looked clear, felt incredibly soft and moisturized to the touch; there was no tight dry feeling, and all my lovely little ooogies were extracted.

I would highly recommend you treat yourself to this amazing facial if you can. It’s a 2 hour treatment and you’ll see the benefits for weeks afterwards. The price is $275,  but the best part is this. Kristy and Stephanie are offering $100 off for you, my lovely Scottsdale Fashionista readers, from now until September 30. *

Make an appointment with Kristy or Stephanie at 480-421-1701 and be sure to tell them you were referred by Scottsdale Fashionista. You must do this to get the $100 off !

Here’s a description of the Celebrity Facial Treatment from Kristy and Stephanie’s blog, ” Best of Both Worlds AZ “.

We open with a thorough Clarisonic cleansing under steam, followed by an AHA/ Intensive Resurfacing mask. Dermaplaning and diamond tip microdermabrasion of the face, neck and chest give a leading performance as they gently exfoliate removing dead skin cells. Extractions and high frequency are then utilized to combat acne. A cooling Rejuvenating mask formulated with hyaluronic acid is applied, to sooth and hydrate skin. Cold Derma-globes are gently rolled and massaged over the skin to reduce redness, inflammation and contract pores. The treatment is completed with a soothing oxygen treatment, designed to nourish and revitalize skin with the use of pure oxygen that is infused with vitamins and minerals. The entire experience is further complemented with a paraffin hand treatment and a relaxing massage of the face, neck and shoulders. The Celebrity skin is healthy, radiant and sure to demand an encore.
