SkinSpirit Redmond is one of our three Washington skincare clinics, and is located on the east side of Lake Washington, just 20 minutes outside of Seattle. SkinSpirit Redmond is easily accessible right off of the 520 freeway, across the way from Whole Foods, where there is plenty of convenient parking. We recently had a chance to sit down with Tina Talerico, a Master Aesthetician at SkinSpirit Redmond for the last three years. Tina’s position as a Master Aesthetician isn’t just a job–it’s her passion. Tina’s mission is to improve improve the quality of her clients’ skin. We wanted to know what makes the SkinSpirit Redmond location special, which treatments are favorites amongst her clients, her biggest piece of skincare advice and some fun facts she could share with us about the location.
What makes SkinSpirit Redmond special?
TT: Our staff makes our location so special. We’re like a big family, from the admins at the front desk to the practitioners in the treatment rooms. The love and support we have for each of our staff members makes our location warm and friendly for all of our clients. We’re always willing to go the extra mile for each and every client we see. With a five star Yelp rating, our clients are #1 and they know it!
What are the top three services offered at SkinSpirit Redmond?
TT: Hands down, our Signature Facials are #1. With these facials, we use medical-grade skincare products that enable us to fully exfoliate, deep clean, hydrate, help reduce acne, minimize fine lines and brown spots, leaving the skin healthy and glowing.
Chemical Peels are also popular, especially the medium to deep chemical peels like the TCA/Pro-Retinol Peels and Modified Jessner Peels. These types of chemical peels are designed to remove old skin and allow new skin to come through, stimulating collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and helping reverse sun damage.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is another one of our most popular treatments, with over 1,000 injections performed every month at each of our six locations! It’s also one of the most well-known anti-aging treatments in the world because it’s safe and provides quick and recognizable results without any downtime. Our practitioners are experts and our clients consistently see amazing results.
What is your favorite treatment and why?
TT: My favorite treatment is the Dermaplaning facial with a chemical peel booster and décolleté facial add-on. I love this treatment because it’s one of the deepest facials we offer. Clients get all of the benefits they’d receive from a facial and chemical peel in one treatment for three different areas: the face, the neck and the décolleté, without experiencing any downtime. For clients wanting the biggest visual impact, I suggest they always have their neck, décolleté and face treated during their treatments. This way the skin in these areas will consistently look amazing and even more youthful.
What’s your biggest piece of skincare advice?
TT: It’s important to treat the skin from the inside out. For the inside, I recommend eating clean, drinking lots of water and getting a good night’s sleep every night.
For the outside, I recommend always using a medical grade facial cleanser day and night such as iS Clinical’s Cleansing Complex – great for all skin types.
Adding antioxidants such as vitamin C to your daily skincare regimen will not only help diminish dull and discolored skin, but will also protect it from damaging free radicals. I love both SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF and iS Clinical’s Super Serum Advance.
What’s the point in treating your skin if you don’t protect it from damaging UV rays? Always, always, always wear sunscreen each and every day. My favorite? iS Clinical’s Extreme Protect SPF30 because it’s a moisturizing sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Last but not least, I recommend using a retinol at night to help turn over skin cells more efficiently, which gives you overall healthier skin. Who doesn’t want to constantly wake up to beautiful skin? My favorite is Jan Marini’s Age Intervention Retinol. It’s a retinol, peptide and antioxidant cream mixed into one product and doesn’t irritate the skin like other retinol products can.
Fun Facts About SkinSpirit Redmond
TT: I recommend booking your appointment as far in advance as possible. Our location tends to book up fast on the weekends. Most of our clients will book their appointments months in advance. Some of our clients will book their appointments every six weeks for the entire year just to make sure they can secure their appointment at the day and time they want.
