Catherine Lebesis, Owner, Body and Soul Med and Day Spa, Mississauga
What’s your specialty?
Facials and anti-age skin care.
How did you get into aesthetics?
I was 19 and I went to a spa–my first experience–and I just fell in love with the smells, sounds.
What do you love about aesthetics?
That I can make people happy and look great. That I can see the transformation, and reverse the aging process.
How has the service you provide changed over the years?
Technology is more prevalent in spas. Before, I didn’t think of anti-age, but now I’m aging with my clients. When I was young, I thought about skin care in terms of prevention; now it’s about reversing.
What are you most excited about now?
Dermaroller and Vital Collagen Induction. It’s a roller with fine needles that make tiny little holes in the skin to infuse it with moisture, vitamins and anti-oxidants. It forces skin to regenerate, renew.
What inspires you?
Making women feel good, giving them confidence.
What’s your beauty must-have?
A great eye cream.
What should every woman know when it comes to looking after their skin?
They shouldn’t look at facials as a luxury. It should be a necessity, like cutting your hair, trimming your nails. A must.
