You previously worked at Ilia Beauty and RGB Cosmetics! What were some key takeaways from your experiences there that inspired you lớn open Cheeks và Co.?

I did! I spent the past 10 years working for both of those amazing female-led companies & the wealth of knowledge I obtained is priceless. Because I was on the ground floor for both companies, I learned a lot about starting and growing a beauty brand, but the biggest takeaway was to always trust your instincts & truly believe sầu in your product — no matter what challenges come up because they will on a daily basis.

Particularly from Sasha at Ilia, I learned that clear vision & focus will lead you to success. Sasha inspired me to want to lớn create my own beauty br&. While we will branch into sản phẩm soon, I know I had to lớn vày something I was truly passionate about, và clean skincare, self-care, & facials have sầu always been what inspire me. I learned at a young age how much confidence healthy skin can give sầu you, & I never wanted to let go of that feeling. So it was only natural I create a space where I can chia sẻ that.

What sets Cheeks và Co. apart from other L.A. spas?

We marry the amazing aspects of the spa làm đẹp experience with the high-performance and dedicated skincare attention you get from your local aesthetician. We take those two things and add in the ease of convenience và a modern environment. We also offer a very alluring membership plan. The skincare space is definitely hot right now but businesses are either focusing on those quichồng services, or taking the spa làm đẹp experience out of the facial, and Cheeks & Co is focused on pampering and embracing the self-care aspect of facials.

Not only does healthy skin require it but you should also enjoy the "me time" an hour or hour-and-a-half away from your hectic life. We also bởi vì not believe sầu in add-ons, so we designed our menu to feature the best advanced skincare modalities you typically pay over the top for like LED, microdermabrasion, Gua Sha, & microcurrent.

It was important lớn stay local for my first location — I vì chưng want to exp& — and as a proud resident of Altadena, Pasademãng cầu was a no-brainer.

I vì chưng all of my shopping here, I meet friends for dinner và drinks here, why not open my business here!

What"s your personal go-to treatment?

Microcurrent! Our Face Trainer facial is my go-to lớn. I"ve sầu had people ask me where I get my Botox and when I tell them I don"t <& that> I just vì chưng microcurrent religiously, they are hooked. I also use the Ziip handheld device as often as I can in between treatments as well. It"s very good for your overall tone, & helps me a lot with hyperpigmentation as well.
