Local Esthetician Offers Look Good, Feel Better Program
Esthetician Michelle Jimenez, of The Center, Life in Balance, is certified in oncology esthetics. She volunteers with the American Cancer Society in their Look Good, Feel Better program, which is hosted by various health facilities in the area. Cancer patients who have gone through or will undergo treatments can receive help with their skincare at these sessions.
Facial skin changes include drying, flaking or burning can occur as patients undergo treatment. In her two-hour class, Jimenez teaches participants how to choose appropriate skincare products, how to apply eyebrows when theirs are missing and how to create the illusion of eyelashes. This program is free and participants receive a make-up bag filled with products.
“Having a loved one pass form colon cancer, I witness the changes in my mother’s outer appearance,” explains Jimenez. “I wished I could do something to help lift her spirits. This prompted me to get my certification. I could not cure the cancer but I could help patients feel a little better when they looked in the mirror. In addition to her volunteer work, Jimenez offers facials, bacials, microdermabrasion, peels, hand and foot treatments, reflexology, waxing and makeup applications.
