Skincare Self-Assesment

Self-Assessment Exercise

As you can see if you browse this site, Eva offers many different and complementary services. It is not always obvious, however, how to translate from the description of a service to your own aesthetic concerns. You may not be aware of all the many imperfections and age-related changes that Eva can treat. Of course, only Eva herself can make an individual assessment, and can develop the optimal, personalized program for you. The best way to profit from Eva's overall expertise is to schedule a Total-Look Consultation with her.

You may find it enlightening to glance into a virtual or real-life mirror, and to check what you see against the following list. If you are bothered by any of the listed items, talk to Eva about what magic she can work to address your concerns. You can schedule an appointment by calling ESSpa (412-782-3888).
