I recently moved to Portland from New York. After spending many hours online and researching for a really good facial place, I finally picked Dermaesthetica. The place had very good reviews. I got a little bit frustrated because it took me a while to get an appointment with Marina. She seems to be very busy. First, I got a consultation with her and she spent long time with me talking about my skin problems and goals. The consultation was free of charge! Then, I finally got the skin purification facial with microdermabrasion and was absolutely impressed with her dermatologist-like understanding of the skin and her in-depth knowledge of cosmetic ingredients. She is much more then just an esthetician, her skills and clinical approach put her in line with some of the best professionals in her field. Marina is fearless with extractions and after my visit with her my skin felt clean, not irritated, and the redness quickly went away. She also formulates and sells her own natural skin care products. The peptide eye cream she recommended for me was simply superb and made my lines under eyes less visible. I absolutely recommend Marina and her skin care product to anybody who is looking for ?no fluff? skin care with results.
Pros: Great quality, treatments well priced, highly skilled profes
Cons: long wait for an appointment
