The Gorgeous Lady Facial Studio Helps Bring Out Your Inner Beauty

By Elisha Neubauer

While they say beauty is only skin deep, there is one thing that we all know to be true -- when you look good, you feel good.

Wanting to help other men and women look their best, in order to feel their best, Elena Pingree decided to take matters into her own hands, launching The Gorgeous Lady Facial Studio in Alameda, California. The Russian native was no stranger to the industry, as her grandmother owned her very own salon in Russia for many years. Growing up around the business, Pingree had an innate desire to continue the trend, and help others with their beauty care as her grandmother had done before her.

Pingree acknowledged early on that revealing inner beauty through proper health and skin care affords you a certain level of self confidence that may not have been exposed before. Finding a sense of calmness, mentally and physically, is yet another aspect to proper beauty care that Pingree believes deeply in.

"I offer to my guests the atmosphere of serenity and calmness," she explains. "My place reminds of some kind of lonely island far away in open sea. Everything in salon is for comfort of my guests." The muted tones, soft music, and warm décor all speaks to Pingree's desire to sooth her guests. From the moment you enter the salon, you're awash with serenity, a break from the hustle and bustle of the modern digital world.

The Gorgeous Lady Facial Studio features certified organic, medical graded professional products of the German company, Jean D'Arcel, for facial, wax, and body wrap. In addition to wraps and facials, the studio offers a wide variety of add-on treatments covering all of your beauty needs. LED light, ultrasonic or high frequency treatments, Zen beauty ampoules, Paraffin hand treatments, Collagen eye treatments, and Manual Microdermabrasion are just a handful of the options available to clients.

To maximize effectiveness, many packages are available, such as the body wrap and bonus facial which runs for $180 for 90 minutes. Waxing and manicures are also available to round out your services.

Pingree herself has been in the industry for over 15 years, training in both the US and Europe. Each year she continues to attend seminars here in the US as well as abroad, keeping her skill set and knowledge base up to date with the latest information and products in the industry. "I believe that knowledge is power," she says. "So, I provide my clients with information regarding all aspects of the skin care. I take time to break down old stereotypes and deliver information."
