Intimo Skin Care in Modesto, California may be celebrating it's 20th birthday, but the estheticians that work there are committed to staying current with their incredible skincare treatments. Read on to find out how this successful spa has grown and made a name for itself over the years.
When did Intimo Skin Care Open?
We became business owners in 1999 with our first business The Studio Skin Care Center, also in downtown. We moved 3 blocks up the street in 2006 and opened Intimo Skin Care. We are celebrating our 20 year anniversary!
What is Intimo’s approach to skincare?
We believe each guest should receive the most up to date treatments and products our industry has to offer. So we are continually educating ourselves and seeking out what’s new in the skin care industry.
What is different about Intimo from other spas?
We have set ourselves apart from other spas. First, we only do skin care related services. This way we do not compete with the noise, energy or odors that a busy day spa creates. This way each guest can enjoy our private rooms, relax and be treated individually. Most important, I personally train each Esthetician as well as oversee the training they receive from educators for our services and products. It is my goal to have a highly effective team delivering the same treatments and knowledge of skin care. This way our guests are comfortable knowing that they will always enjoy treatments by any member of our team
What are the biggest difficulties of running a spa?
The hardest part of running the spa is there are never enough hours in the day!
What is the best part of running a spa?
The most gratifying part is knowing that Intimo Skin Care has truly enriched and encouraged the lives of our team and our spa guests through the years!
How do you decide on new treatments?
I choose new treatments in relationship to new products, innovation and cost. Our menu needs to reflect the needs of all our guests at a reasonable price.
Which is your most popular treatment? Why?
Our most popular menu item is anti-aging facials. I believe it is because we customize each anti-aging facial so our guests can meet their skin care goals.
What’s your philosophy for skin?
My philosophy for skin care is the better we feel about how we look the more confident we are. We build that confidence through education on products and treatments. This way they know what the products and treatments are doing to reach their skin goals. They become excited about skin care, look forward to seeing us and are more consistent with their home care.
How do you think Intimo has grown/changed over the years?
We have grown tremendously over the years. We started in 900 square feet with 2 facial rooms, 2 Esthetician’s and a receptionist. We didn’t even have water in our rooms so we had to leave to fill our bowls from the sink in the back. We did everything by hand. No computer to record treatments, keep clients information, do inventory or ordering!
We now have 1800 square ft, 5 treatment rooms all with sinks, 2 with showers, a break room, laundry room, vanity area and a large front retail area. We currently have a team of 6 including 4 esthetician’s a massage therapist and front desk coordinator.
What keeps clients coming back?
Guests return because we love what we do and they feel it as soon as they walk in the door!
