When Master Esthetician Barbara Mead provides you with a holistic, healing skin care treatment or waxing service, you can relax knowing that she’s focused on what’s best for your overall health, beauty and integrity of your skin. Barbara’s background is in both advanced esthetic approaches and science, built up over more than 13 years in the beauty business. Barbara specializes in the treatment and management of acne and progressive age management solutions. She does this without the use of harsh chemicals or invasive treatments. Barbara’s personalized approach to skin care transcends the superficial to take a deep dive into your unique biology, habits, and existing product use in order to devise the perfect treatments for you.
Barbara’s clients often mention that an appointment with her is like dropping by to catch-up with a close friend and confidant that truly cares. This is because she works hard to create a safe, Zen-filled space for you to share your most private skin care concerns. And she rejects common wisdom that results need to be at the expense of your health, wellness and comfort. Every service, product or technique Barbara uses - be it for clearing and controlling acne, reducing redness and pigmentation, less painful extractions and waxes and/or deep relaxation massage - has been carefully investigated and rigorously tested to ensure optimal benefits and effectiveness.
For all of these reasons, Facial Zen is a Yelp favorite, and Barbara has won acclaim for her signature facials and hair removal treatments in Washingtonian Magazine: “Aesthetician Barbara Mead has a soothing manner and magically soft hands… Mead can administer a lightning quick bikini wax that rivals anyone’s best in Rio De Janeiro.”
If you ask Barbara what she’s most proud of, she’ll tell you it’s working in harmony with you to achieve the visible results you desire. It’s why she continually studies the science and art of skin care, so she can always be on top of the newest, most optimally effective and minimally invasive procedures and products. And it’s also why Barbara takes great care in educating you about best practices for your skin and follows up with you - she wants to be sure you can easily sustain the stunning results you receive on her treatment table.
When she’s not at Facial Zen, Barbara loves being outdoors, hiking and observing nature. Barbara is also an animal lover, enthusiastic chef, classical music devotee and avid reader. Her love of art and science fills every area of her life, making her life’s work helping you achieve clean, clear, radiant skin and ageless beauty her greatest joy.
