About Tami Root
With over three decades of professional skin care experience, I understand struggles, problems, and goals. My own teenage skin issues led me to a life-long passion for learning about how the skin works.
How we feel about ourselves includes how we feel about our skin. Results come from what you use and how you use it. Improvements rarely happen without a change of routine.
I love helping clients build or improve-on a solid cleansing routine. Treatments can transform your skin, but it’s your daily investment that yields greater rewards.
What to Expect
We’ll start your chart by asking a few questions about your skin care goals and the products that you use at home.
Reservations for Gorgeous Appointments (Brow/Facial/Dermaplane Combinations) are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 9, 11, 1, 3, and 5. This $150 ninety-minute treatment features Brow Shaping, a Triple Cleanse Facial, Stone Massage, and Dermaplaning, payments can be made with cash or check.
Health issues can affect your skin. If you are under a physician’s care, please consult them for treatment contraindications. Refrain from using any topical product that encourages cellular turnover/brightening, or other medications on the skin one week before/after a treatment. Contact me if you have any questions.
The Gorgeous Appointment
STEP 1 – An initial tweezing of your brows, to shape and frame your face for the best effect, determining your perfect shape by measuring the angles between your nose and eyes.
STEP 2 – The small smooth-stones that I use to massage the cleanser in help reveal surface skin imperfections, before transitioning to a more textured tumbled-stone to begin the physical exfoliation process.
STEP 3 – Papaya Enzyme Powder, a chemical exfoliant, loosens the bond that the surface cells have to each other, making it easier to remove any congestion in the skin.
STEP 4 – Steam, Vitamin Wash, and the Resurfacing Wand whisk away the separated surface cells.
STEP 5 – A brow grooming tool shapes the perimeter of your brow and is extended down your face and neck, shaving the longer facial hair close to the surface.
STEP 6 – Steam cloths further soften the pores and prep your face for the scalpel.
STEP 7 – Dermaplaning follows with a surgical blade, which precisely refines the contours of your face, working inside the lines, around the nose, and on the cheeks, forehead, and jawline.
STEP 8 – An Aloe Mask soothes your face and neck. Brow trimming perfects the shape. To condition your skin, your face is toned with Rosewater, moisturized with Jojoba Oil, sealed with Recovery Cream, and protected with Zinc Oxide.
STEP 9 – Brow powder styles and frames your face. Just bring your favorite lip color and you’re ready to balance the look.
For the first 24-48 hours after your treatment, it’s best to avoid challenging your face with direct sunlight, saunas, extreme changes in temperatures, sweaty exercise, etc. until you assess how your skin is reacting.
For about a week after your treatment, your skin will not need any type of exfoliation. Please avoid using Retinols, Vitamins A or C, Benzoyl Peroxide, Differin, exfoliating scrubs, or any product that encourages
cellular turnover or brightening. Whatever you put on your face will be absorbed deeper.
Is it for you?
The Gorgeous Appointment targets a specific skin type that responds positively to advanced exfoliation. It’s for faces that lack full radiance and with fine lines, peach fuzz, and brows that need shaping.
If your face is sensitive, reactive, allergic to botanicals or nickel, breaks out easily, worships the sun, or skips sunscreen — it’s not for you.
If you are under a physician’s care, please check prior to making your appointment to ensure that this type of exfoliation doesn’t conflict with your treatment plan.
How do I know if my skin type is a good match for The Gorgeous Appointment?
If your skin is sensitive, advanced exfoliation isn’t a good match. Normally, natural facial oils flow up the shaft of the hair to disperse on the skin’s surface. When those hairs are cut, the oil has nowhere to go and can cause unpleasant eruptions. Not everyone should shave their face, especially if you are prone to break outs or get cystic acne.
Will you just Dermaplane me? I don’t need all the other steps.
No. I’m more satisfied with the results after the softening and removing of the dry skin prior to Dermaplaning.
What is the process?
It starts with a stone massage that gently lifts the hair off the face for better cleansing underneath, followed by the wand which is like little silicon fingertips that spin and force the skin to fly off after the surface cells are separated by the enzyme peel. Then when the steam collects on the hairs, it’s easier to shave them and remove the longer, thicker hairs so that the scalpel stays sharper as it glides over your face. (Is there anyone who likes a dry shave?)
Will you wax my brows?
While waxing is a quick way to get rid of hair, it can be harmful to your skin. As of Spring 2019 I no longer use wax — I tweeze and shave exclusively as part of The Gorgeous Appointment.
