All of the estheticians at Peaches Skin Care are college graduates, Board-Certified Estheticians, and have been practicing skin care for years under the direction of Lisa Pfeiffer the owner of Peaches, who has been working as an esthetician in California and Oregon, for over two and a half decades, owning multiple salons in the past, and perfecting her technique for restoring skin to its natural, healthy perfection.
I have been in the skin care and beauty industry for over two decades. I have had the privilege of working in every facet of the industry-from my beginnings as a makeup and makeover artist working with brands such as Lancome, Estee lauder, Clinique and Adrien Arpel, to having the privilege of working with the finest dermatologist and cosmetic surgeons in the industry.
I have worked in salons, with professional athletes, models, actors and actresses as well as traveling to private homes in LA. What did I notice with each new experience? That no matter how much make up you applied and how many injectables or procedures or products you suggested to a client, the results would always be the same. You can’t HIDE, COVER, SCRAPE, LASER, INJECT, or IGNORE the real reasons for bad, pre-maturely aged, acne ridden and scarred skin. You must know what the skin does to protect itself and why.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is the filtration system and the protector of internal organs. It wants to be nourished, fed and loved.
I would notice each time a patient came into the physician’s office or walked up to the cosmetic counter, that he or she was never asked about what they were using as their regime at home. Did they wear foundation? Change their pillow case every night? Wash the product out of their hair? Travel to a new place with different flora, fauna, bacteria, or fungus? You get the picture. Instead people are taught invasive procedures and given products that are full of color, fragrance, and chemicals and have no antioxidants or nourishment for the skin.
When I gave a facial to a beautiful, well-known model and noticed how terrible her skin was, I found out she had been getting her zits injected; making the skin collapse and dent. She had also been taking medication for over five years. I knew I had to find a way to truly cleanse the skin deeply and get immediate results for my clients that didn’t further damage their inner or outer body.
In the past two plus decades I have honed and detailed ONE very specific facial. Add in our products filled with pure antioxidants and continual client education and training of our MASTER estheticians, I have created the highest standard in the industry. We have been able to transform skin beginning from the very first visit and the very first wash. We don’t just sell hope – we stand with you through the process of new, beautiful, healthy skin.
My belief is simple- non invasive procedures, no peels, no lasers, no injectables, no pills, no foundation. NATURAL is BEAUTIFUL! We make it so your skin doesn’t have to be covered up, pulled back, scraped, burned or chemically changed in any way.
We love your skin and teach it to heal itself, breathe, live and renew!
Changing your skin can completely transform your life and how you feel.
Quite simply let us be the catalyst to begin feeling good again. We will be with you on your journey to feeling confident and taking care of your inner and outer self.
