Why did you choose to open Honey Skin Spa in Madison Valley?
I was specifically looking for a neighborhood with a close-knit community. I first discovered the neighborhood through City People’s and it was my dream to open a business here. It reminds me of an upscale but quaint European village, and I love that all of the shops and business here are independently owned, many by local women, which was a big draw for me.
What do you love about the neighborhood?
I love all of the restaurants and shops, especially Jarbo and Alice!! I spent most of my first year getting to know other business owners and participating in community events organized by the extraordinary Lindy Wishard! Madison Valley is a really supportive and caring community and the business owners are so kind and generous. Annie at Annie Fischer Hair Salon is a dear friend and mentor to me. Madison Valley has everything within walking distance; once you are here you don’t need a car to get around. It’s perfect!
What sets Honey Skin Spa apart from other skin spas?
It is really the amount of love, time and compassion that we put into everything we do. We have the same clients as we did when we opened five years ago because they feel cared for, comfortable and a part of the Honey family. There is nothing we won’t do for our clients. We stay late, come in early, help them with a plan for aftercare, we have dropped products off at their homes, whatever they need and whatever it takes!
We always strive for exceptional service and intentionally do not overbook our appointments so that nobody is rushed and we can spend as much time as needed with guests. Skin is your largest organ and it’s connected to so many other functions of the body. We take great care in learning about each guest’s lifestyle and skin goals, and we make recommendations for supplements, eating, products and more based on this and their needs.
We also built Honey using the highest quality design and products, from the paint on our walls to the skin care products in our services, to the heated beds in our treatment rooms; all to create a beautiful, tranquil setting.
Honey has been known to be the best-kept secret in skin care, why do guests say this?
Our clients say to us all the time that they don’t want to tell people about Honey because they are afraid of our getting too busy and overbooked. Which makes us laugh and we assure them that they will always be able to get in with us!
Our clients trust us so much and know that we have their best interest at heart. I give them the same caring and advice that I give to my mom and sisters.
There is also no pressure at Honey, we don’t answer to a corporate office with sales goals or tactics to book appointments back to back. I didn’t want anyone telling me which products to sell and how fast to get through services. These are some of the reasons that I wanted to open my own spa with my own culture and values. We simply want to help people achieve their best skin ever and want everyone to leave feeling like they had the best facial of their life.
Tell us about your signature Illuminating Oxygen Facial and why it’s so effective?
Our Oxygen Treatment brings all of the inflammation down to create healthy, vibrant and glowing skin. Creating great skin is all about controlling inflammation, when you are not inflamed your skin doesn’t age, it’s happy. It might sound too good to be true but its why our guests come back again and again for this treatment, as they can see and feel the differences right away.
Nothing we do is superficial; everything has a purpose that changes the way your cells behave in your dermis, which controls all of your cell metabolic functions. This is how skin is improved and regains its natural glow and luster.
Our new LED Therapy Facial also offers some amazing benefits using gentle, non-toxic LED red and blue lights that penetrate the skin to repair and heal a variety of issues like killing acne bacteria, minimizing fine lines, repairing scarring, sun damage, and more.
Honey is going to be adding microneedling to our services this October, so stay tuned for more details at www.honeyskinspa.com!
