When did you know that you wanted to be an esthetician?
All I know is that I wanted to help people not only look beautiful but also feel good at the same time. Yet, little did I know this would lead me towards the journey of becoming an esthetician. I know I want to do more and be able to customize skincare treatments that give an instant result. From this moment, I decided to go back to school while working full time until I completed the hours to take the board exam and when I received my esthetician license I knew that it was just the beginning of a beautiful journey. Helping people look their best and improve their confidence is a joy that I feel whenever I see my clients very happy with the result of my customized treatments.
How did you start?
I started as a distributor of Olivia Quido Skincare products and after getting my esthetician license, I opened my own day spa called “Gravitas Beauty and Wellness”. However, when the pandemic happened, we were closed three times due to the state mandate. During our closure, it gave me the opportunity to prepare and transition to “Gravitas Medspa” that allowed us to expand our services to medical procedures such as skin peeling, immunity drip, stem cell and magic foundation microneedling, botox, and warts removal. And as promised to all of our clients, we will offer the best treatments and procedures that are available in the market so I am continuously learning, researching, and seeking for new treatments and services that will be added to our menu.
What inspires you?
Inspiration comes from something or someone that motivates you to be better and do better. There is so much inspiration in this world and I think it is important that we start to highlight the things that inspire us:
My family, especially my children, inspires me to do my best in everything that I do. I want them to see that everything is possible if you put your heart and mind in whatever things that you do with God’s help and guidance.
Seeing my clients be their best selves both inside and out after receiving their Gravitas experience inspires me as well. It drives me to do even more for them by constantly researching what cutting edge and state of the art services and equipment are out there.
I am also inspired by people who are focused and know where they are headed, who strive joyfully to accomplish their goals and are determined to accomplish what they set out to do while being able carry it out enthusiastically with love and hope.
What does “beauty” mean to you?
Beauty in our society has been defined in so many ways and forms. For me, beauty is not just about appearances; it's a culmination of an individual’s confidence, strength, healthy habits and values. Being mindful of the needs of others, and using your unique qualities to add meaning to the lives of other people. The very reason why I love what I do is because of the opportunity to help others improve themselves not only on the outside but on the inside as well. I firmly believe that beauty and wellness goes hand in hand which is the main core of Gravitas Medspa.
How do you create your treatments
At Gravitas Medspa, we live and breathe beauty and wellness. We know that both women and men have skincare goals that are unique, and there's no magic solution that works for everyone. That's why we're passionate about providing our clients with a variety of skincare treatments and products that are specifically designed with their needs in mind. This is what led me to developing unique skincare treatments based on my research and studies that are result-driven taking into consideration each person’s individualized skin care needs. With the promise of providing the best for our clients, I continuously attend classes, seminars, and engage myself in learning opportunities to be able to choose which products and services are great for our clients.
What’s your signature treatment?
My “Megalux Treatment” is the most sought-after treatment right now because of the one-of-a-kind experience and excellent result after just one treatment. This is the newest skincare treatment that I created combining the most effective products and procedures in the market today. This unique treatment is a 2-hour procedure that is noninvasive and has no downtime. Your skin will love it and get accustomed to because of the following benefits:
o Detoxifies skin and unclog pores
o Lymphatic drainage
o Helps soften fine lines and wrinkles
o Lightens pigmentations
o Calms active acne
o Helps with collagen production
o Lifts and contours skin
o Infuses Oxygen for cell repair and renewal
o Relaxes your whole body
This treatment will literally take extra years off from your age and will keep you GLOWING and LOOKING YOUNGER after just ONE TREATMENT. I highly recommend everyone to try this amazing experience. I am truly grateful for the wisdom that God has given me in creating this treatment.
What do you recommend for a daily healthy skin routine?
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a daily skincare routine because of the many benefits to our skin such as preventing premature aging, breakouts and pigmentations. And it is equally important to choose skincare products that give excellent results. For this reason, I highly recommend Olivia Quido Skincare products (Official Skincare of the 2019 and 2020 Miss Universe) because of the great results it brings to all of its users.
It is not a one size fits all regimen because each person’s goals and skin conditions are different. Being an advocate for all of my clients and an official distributor of this product, gives me the opportunity to customize a skincare regimen that is best suited for each individual's skin care needs.
Are you planning on creating your own skin care line?
It's a woman’s dream to have her own skincare line and if it’s God’s will for me, it will happen in His perfect timing.
What’s your must-have product?
We are exposed to different UV sources both inside and outside of our homes, that’s why a skincare product that is a MUST-HAVE is SUNSCREEN with at least a minimum SPF of 50. Constant exposure to the UV sources without any proper protection can lead to skin conditions such as cancer or pigmentations which are difficult to treat and can be very expensive.
