The professional esthetics industry is demanding. Technology changes, brand new ingredients demand recognition and new standards constantly push the bar upward. On the other end of this professional evolution you'll find veteran Esthetician, Teri Kotantoulas, handling every twist with grace, ease and confidence. Recognized by both peers and clients, praise for Teri and Face To Face Esthetics may be found everywhere from being named Highlands Ranch, Colorado's Best Day Spa to recognition in the pages of professional trade journals Skin Deep and Skin Inc.
Teri had a strong interest in skin care early on. As with many teens, Teri experienced acne as a teenager and is sensitive to the effects acne can impose on someone's life. Trying to wade through the noise and claims made by over-the-counter and home party skin care companies can be confusing, and Teri, ever the skeptic, decided to seek the truth and education by attending a high-ranking esthetics school in Colorado and becoming a Licensed Esthetician. And boy was that education eye-opening! Who knew that a love of skin care could open Pandora's box into in-depth ingredient and formulary knowledge along with physiology and anatomy of the skin. This education transformed Teri's love of skin care, into a passion of caring for the skin properly, from the inside out.
Backed by more than a dozen years of customer service commitment and advanced training, Teri is never one to take a shortcut. With Teri, licensed since 2008, clients and treatments that deliver results always come first.
"I'm committed to helping my clients reach their goals. No one that comes in to see me is ever a number ...
we'll lay out a plan and work as a team to get where we're going, taking things one step at a time so you don't get overwhelmed."
In Teri's care, clients have come to expect, and always receive clinical results, a pampering touch, and a holistic approach. Far different from the average skin studio, clients always leave having absorbed knowledge that empowers them to make educated, informed decisions to maintain optimal skin health. Rising not only to meet, but to exceed client expectations is Teri's norm.
"The esthetics industry is a constant challenge, but so is life, right? Starting over, learning brand new skills on a regular basis,
and taking time out to connect with others through everyday experiences is never time wasted."
What's so special about Oncology Esthetics?
With cancer diagnoses on the rise, chances are that you are or know someone living with cancer. Teri has been personally affected by cancer on several levels and has a unique understanding of the physical and emotional challenges of cancer patients and survivors. (The above picture is of Teri and her mom, during her mom's fourth battle with cancer. That's right - she's a four-time survivor!) Recognizing that people living with, recovering from, or survivors of cancer require special treatment led Teri to become Certified in Oncology Esthetics. Cancer treatments can be very hard on the skin, which is one of the challenges she want to help alleviate. Additionally, studies show that the power of touch, such as through a facial, massage, or even Reiki, can help reduce pain, improve mood, and reduce fatigue in cancer patients.
Skin health suffers when our entire bodily system is under the stress of not only fighting cancer, but the treatments that help us survive it. Teri is honored to offer certified, conscientious, specialized treatments to help nourish your skin and relieve as much stress as possible during this difficult time.
Oncology Esthetics helps to restore the balance that is in constant sway during and even after chemotherapy and radiation.
Teri has undergone rigorous training in order to work with you to improve the extreme dryness, inflammation, and potentially fragile state your skin may endure.
Unique products are used to soothe, deeply hydrate, and strengthen skins weakened barrier.
Every positive action has meaning. Self care is a purposeful, effective stress reliever.
A little extra compassion via human touch is never a bad idea. It's not about being fixed, it's about feeling better, feeling cared for, and feeling like yourself again. Detachment, even temporarily, is quieting and de-stressing.
Practice self love. Make a difference in someone's life. Believe in yourself.
