MOUNT VERNON — Specialty skin care and other aesthetic services are the newest business offerings in Mount Vernon. An open house grand-opening event will take place at Aesthetics Spa, 3 N. Main St., from 4 to 7 p.m., Friday, with refreshments and special offers.
“Aesthetics is a set of principles based on art and beauty. It’s a different approach to being an artist,” said business owner and Mount Vernon resident Ronni Whisner.
Whisner has been a licensed aesthetician for five years, attaining her certification and working in aesthetics at a medspa and at other jobs, learning the business aspect of operating her own spa.
Aesthetics Spa offers skin treatments, makeup and a variety of lashes, tinting and waxing services. Skin treatments include consultations, dermaplane, clarifying treatment, oxygen treatment, cabernet peel and customized treatments. There is a variety of lashing services available plus tinting and waxing. Whisner can customize makeup treatments appropriate for bridal and high school events. She also offers practical makeup lessons.
A full line of professional skin care products is available for purchase as is an organic nutritional line of products comprised of raw fruits and vegetables.
Currently offering aesthetic services by herself, Whisner is working toward having others work with her as well as adding additional lines of similar service. A jewelry artist also offers a line of her artwork in the spa.
“I would like to have a massage therapist in here and a nutritionist/dietician. That is my goal,” said Whisner. Additional rooms are located in the spa ready for other business associates ready to occupy.
“So we have local artwork plus the concept of beauty and wellness,” Whisner said. “It’s everything kind of all together.” The interior exhibits an artistic feel when visitors enter Aesthetics Spa as Whisner has worked hard to create an appropriate atmosphere when visitors enter her business.
Hours at Aesthetics Spa are Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
