Although National Aesthetician Day has come and gone, we're continuing the celebration by shining light on skincare professionals that help guide us through the journey to achieving the complexion of our dreams. The skincare journey is often marked with many highs and lows, ineffective products, painful treatments and a dip in our bank accounts…but, why should it? Aestheticians are there to help customize our regimens with high-performance products, perform gentle, yet impactful treatments and provide emotional support as skin begins to transform. In short, they’re your skin’s best friend.

Whether you’re a teen looking to tackle an onslaught of pesky blemishes or a male looking to deep cleanse your beard, Glow is the place for you. The team is small, but mighty, with a perfect blend of talents, passions and specialties to kickstart your skin-transformation journey.
The woman behind the spa is dancer-turned-esthetician, Kasey Boone, who has been treating clients for 8 years as Glow’s owner and Head Aesthetician. A self-proclaimed beauty lover and lover of all things skincare, Kasey has built an expansive client list across the greater Los Angeles area, specializing in hydrodermabrasion, peels, customized facials and organic spray tans.
A few of their top services include:
Blueberry Smoothie: It’s as good as it sounds! This treatment works to soften rough, uneven skin tones for a balanced complexion and dramatically smoother texture. If you struggle with acne or texture, this is the treatment for you!
Pomegranate Peel: Don’t let the word ‘peel’ intimidate you. This gentle antioxidant exfoliating treatment is the perfect pick-me-up for all skin types and conditions, as it leaves behind a radiant, renewed and glowing complexion.
Timeless Peel: We may not be able to turn back the hands on the clock, but this peel makes us look that way! Instantly stimulate collagen, elastin production and cell turnover to visible reduce signs of aging and pigmentation with this gentle peel. It produces powerful results that may include mild to moderate flaking, depending on your skin condition.
Opti Crystal | Liquid Crystal Eye Serum
“Opti Crystal is an under eye game changer! I have struggled with under eye darkness and fines lines (thanks, genetics) my whole life and Opti Crystal is THE BEST product I have ever used. Not only is this product beautiful, but it gives you results immediately with its amazing liquid crystal technology and it’s going to work long term for you as well. I’m addicted to this product and so is my family, and best of all my clients!”
Serum 16 | Rapid Renewal Serum
“First off, in my opinion everyone needs to be on a retinol. Retinol has so many benefits—it gently resurfaces the skin which helps with fine lines, brightness, firming and even acne! I love Serum 16 because even though it is exfoliating, this serum will also rehydrate the skin. I can’t live without it!”
Bio-Shape| Firming Face Mask
“Bio-Shape is my new favorite mask. Its seriously magical. I LOVE to sleep in a thin layer of this mask 1-2 times a week. I wake up smooth and firm—no joke all of my little fine lines have been filled in—it’s crazy. I love this mask for its immediate results but also its long-term firming. This mask is also a great hydrator without clogging your pores. Perfect pre-event mask for that extra plump and glow.”
