About Beauty For Ashes

Beauty is so much more than skin deep. It is also who we are on the inside. In Isaiah 61 it talks of the Lord’s blessing and restoration upon his people. While I can provide services to help achieve your skin care goals and hopefully improve your self-confidence, only the Lord can take away the feelings of shame, guilt, bitterness, and inadequacy that can leave us ugly on the inside.

I am a God and people loving, passionate aesthetician with over 10 years of experience working with doctors and plastic surgeons. I have been blessed to be trained on everything from lasers and permanent makeup to assisting in plastic surgery and wound care. I love what I do and being able to help others feel good about themselves! I am now venturing out on my own to use my acquired skills and knowledge.

    review rating 5  Dawn has been my aesthetician for 7 years. Truly an amazing person and very knowledgeable about the latest and greatest in skin care. The latest is the Plasma Pen that has recently arrived her from Europe. Almost zero down time and very affordable. I'm turning 70 this year and thanks to Dawn and my life style I don't look my age. Please call her and set up a consultation. You won't regret it!

    review rating 5  Dawn is a genuine gem and you can trust that you and your skin are in good hands with her. She is honest, yet never pushy. She definitely gives you the most bang for your buck but never more than you can handle and is sensitive to tighter budgets offering alternatives and plans to suit your needs. She wants your skin to look it’s best just as much as you do!!! She loves what she does and that shines through in her work. I’ve done several microneedling treatments with her and absolutely love it! I am looking forward to going back soon.

    thumb Holly Price

    review rating 5  If you want your skin to look its best, Dawn is the answer. She shoots straight but with gentleness and won’t push you into anything you don’t need or don’t want to do. Dawn loves to help people and she’s really good at it. She stays current on all the latest treatments for skincare. I love going in to see her regularly. My skin is clearer, less wrinkled, and feels smoother than a baby’s bottom. Treat yourself and boost your confidence. It’s so worth it!

    thumb Susan Close

    review rating 5  HIGHLY SKILLED ! I had the pleasure of seeing Dawn for several treatments including a peel, brow services and some treatments to help my sun damaged skin and every time was amazing! She is incredibly knowledgeable and took the time to listen to my concerns and treat me appropriately. She truly cares about her clients and loves what she does. I took her recommendations on products to use and my skin has never felt or looked better. She is a true professional! 100% will continue to see her!

    thumb Morgan Voorhees

    review rating 5  Let me tell you what a brilliant person Dawn is. She is SO skilled, so kind and her work speaks for itself. I had a wart on my nose, and Dawn used her magic to get rid of it. Fifteen years I had this wart, it was big, brown and ugly, right on the side of my nose. A few sessions with Dawn and her magic zapper, and the wart is GONE! It's been 6+ months since she treated it, and it shows NO signs of ever coming back. Plus, she is A-May-ZING at waxing eyebrows. Your brows will never look better than when Dawn works her magic over them. Go see Dawn at Beauty for Ashes Aesthetics, you won't regret it.

    thumb Katherine Anderson

    review rating 5  Dawn is an amazingly talented esthetician. I had a Plasma Skin Tightening treatment with her and I’m very happy with my results. My lower mouth wrinkles were bothering me and after one plasma treatment I am extremely happy I chose to have this done. She answered all of my questions prior to the treatment and made me feel comfortable and excited to move forward.
