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.

    5 star review  I saw Dawn for a facial and to have a mole removed from my nose. It was my first time visiting an esthetician, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. Dawn has truly mastered the art of creating a welcoming and warm environment. She made sure to explain every step of the process, which made me feel comfortable and informed throughout. After seeing her, my skin felt absolutely amazing. Plus, the mole removal healed perfectly. I can't recommend her enough, both personally and professionally!

    5 star review  Dawn is an amazing aesthetician that goes above and beyond for her clients. She really knows what she's talking about and helped put me at ease when I was worried about a skin condition

    5 star review  I just had a had my first Hydra Cool Facial with Dawn and I just have to share how amazing my experience and results were! Dawn provides a cozy and relaxing experience from the moment you arrive until you leave with hydrated, glowing skin! The treatment also includes cryotherapy and micro current. You will definitely notice how these advanced treatments sets this facial apart from the others. I would recommend this treatment and can’t wait to have wither one next month! Thank you Dawn!!

    5 star review  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! Apparently, the only way to post a second review is to edit the first one, so: I’ve been seeing Dawn for several years. I’m now 61 years old and everybody is super surprised when they learn my age. This is all due to Dawn’s amazing work. I’ve had tons of extractions by her, and they are not fun but certainly not done improperly. I have always had oily skin that produces acne. Thanks to Dawn, I have no scarring. I was stunned to see such a negative review about her. I don’t believe that person. You couldn’t possibly find a more gracious and accommodating esthetician, and she works on weekends. How can you say she doesn’t offer flexible options for people who work? I know without a doubt that she didn’t create any white scarring, nor would she be condescending. Dawn has too much integrity and bends over backwards for her clients. She does everything in her power to help people. There is too much lying being modeled in our culture. Some people just need someone to blame. I hope others looking at these reviews won’t be swayed by outright lies. If you don’t check her out, you are missing out. I would actually look my age without her and that is not a place I want to be.

    5 star review  Wow, Dawn cuts no corners during her services. I “accidentally” came across her business and I am so glad I did. I’ve never received a treatment with results like I did with her. The value of her service is unbeatable for the price. She has many many years of experience and it shows. She has so much knowledge and expertise. She is also personable and easy to talk to. The only thing I don’t like is the fact I didn’t know about her sooner! As another beauty professional, I highly recommend. I plan on going back to Dawn for all of my skincare needs from now on.
