I just had my second facial with Amy yesterday afternoon and all I can say is that Amy is the best. After having facials in the past at other Chicago salons and spas and having poor results I thought maybe I just had skin that was untreatable. I have combination skin that seems to be extremely oily in certain places and dry in others. Each fall I dread what lies ahead with the change in temperature, it means a month of painful break outs for me. I was referred by a friend of mine to Amy about a month ago and decided to make an appointment and see if she could help me. When I made my appointment Amy asked me some questions about my skin, the products I was using and any allergies I might have. As soon as I arrived to my appointment I was greeted by Amy and was welcomed into her treatment room; which I must say is extremely warm and inviting. Amy left the room while I got comfortable and made my way to the table. The low lights and heated table only added to the state of relaxation. As Amy started my treatment she discussed my skin and by asking the right questions only a professional would know to ask she started a number of treatments tailored specifically for my skin type. The extractions were totally painless, the scrubs and masks refreshing, and the moisturizers soothing. Amy also took the time to give me a shoulder and scalp massage and also a relaxing arm, hand and foot massage. Those were the icing on the already perfect cake. I have to say after my facial experiences in the past I wasn't sure how comfortable Id be but I actually fell asleep during Amy's massage. I left my appointment feeling totally recharged. When I woke up the next day I looked in the mirror and saw a huge difference in my skin right away. My skin was clear, with very little irritation. My skin was balanced and soft to the touch. For the first time as I explained it to Amy that day when she called me to follow up; l felt as if my skin was breathing. Ive had tried everything from Proactive to Dr. Murad to the skincare lines sold at department stores and none of them compared to the samples of hand selected products Amy gave me to try. I just experienced my second facial with Amy and left with the products she prescribed to me. I can't wait to book another appointment. Amy not only gives you one amazing treatment but also gives you the information and product suggestions needed to maintain your skin and avoid the dreaded breakouts and dryness. Amy takes skincare and treatment to another level. I can't tell you how great it is to have found Amy. I urge anyone out there that was in my shoes to make an appointment today.
