"As a teenager, I had mild acne and it became worse and developed into cystic acne during my young adult years. It was a very hard time in my life. I was working at a café and my acne got so bad that my boss approached me with a bar of acne soap saying that I needed to take care of my acne because it "does not look hygienic". That really destroyed my confidence. I started an Accutane treatment which made my skin get even worse before it got better and had to get monthly physicals. That experience led me to a career as a skin care specialist and a passion for helping others feel more confident in their skin."

"I have always had very light eyebrows so I was excited to get microblading to my eyebrows done. She explained step by step what she was doing and answered all my questions.

"Went to Barbara for the collagen rejuvenation therapy and couldn't believe the results! I had some fine lines, enlarged pores, and a scar I wasn't happy with and after one treatment all are practically gone plus my pigmentation is much better. She is very friendly, sweet, professional, and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend any service with Barbara, I'm coming back for my eyebrows!"
