At 53 years old, I am now so sorry I spent so much time in the sun when I lived in Arizona. I have prematurely aged my skin. The wrinkles on my skin are more than I should have at my age. Meeting you (Brea) has restored my belief in getting facials and skin treatments at salons. I have considered plastic surgery and other more drastic measures to restore some youthfulness to my skin. Your years of experience convinced me to give you a try. After three treatments, I am extremely hopeful. Just getting on a good skin care routine and using the products you recommended has helped tremendously. I never knew products could actually provide help in this way. You have taught me a lot about how to care for my skin. My friends have noticed the changes, saying things like, “you look rested, fresh and younger”. They ask me if I’ve changed my hair style slightly or added some color to my hair. They can’t quite figure out what I’ve done. It’s your treatments that have changed my appearance, I’ve done nothing to my hair. LOL I love it. Thanks so much. Just wanted you to know this. I am happy.Michelle F - Asheville
Dear Brea – I just wanted to say once again that your facial is the very best I’ve ever had. I am on day three after receiving my first facial from you and my skin still feels great. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I don’t know what you did or what you used, but it works! Thank you!!! I will see you next month.Judith L - Asheville
Your special on hair removal prompted me to come see you. I’ve been struggling with course and black hair on my chin. The thought of electrolysis did not sound like something I wanted to try and laser treatments seemed so expensive. Your pricing is great and I’ve had just one treatment so far and I think it is working. Thank you, I’ll be back!!!Grover A - Asheville
When visiting Asheville, my husband and I went to see Brea for facials and body massage. It was absolutely the best facial experience I have ever had. I highly recommend it. The massage with Jean was great too. We’ve been back to Asheville and had sessions with both of them again and we were not disappointed – still the best!Mady B - Miami Fl.
I am very happy to recommend Brea for micro dermabrasion. I moved to the area 1 year ago and found Brea 4 months ago. I had regular micro dermabrasion in Albany, but my results have been so much better since seeing Brea. She is also highly skilled at extractions. My skin does not break out at all since I have been seeing her. I happy with my results.Dagmar K - Asheville
Thank you Brea! My best friend gave me a gift certificate for a facial with you. No only did my skin feel fantastic when I left, but my entire being felt great. It was by far the best facial that I have ever had. Your techniques are definitely beyond the norm and I took comfort in your knowledge base. You are a true professional with exceptional skills. I am hooked and will be a regular customer.Sandra C - Hendersonville
How many of you have ever written a review? Well, I am taking the time to write a second review on the services provided by Brea at Virtu. Hands down, the best facial and most comprehensive set of services anywhere. Brea is incredibly skilled and very well versed in skin care. You cannot go wrong with regular facials with Brea.Lydia J - Asheville
Thank you for helping me with some ugly spots on my face. I thought it was acne, but you said it was yeast. I have taken the internal products and the topical product that you recommended and within days I have seen dramatic improvements. Some of the spots are almost gone and it’s only been 10 days. I have two more that are almost gone. No one has ever helped me with my skin like this and so fast. I hope that others who are frustrated with their skin will find you and seek your help. You have been a gift to my skin. I really appreciate you Brea!Susie E - Asheville
I found you through an online search and saw that you had some great reviews so I thought I would give you a try. My skin is so old looking for my age, I’m only 40, but I truly believe it looks like I’m much older. I’ve spent a lot of time in my younger years in the sun and now it is starting to show. My skin is dry and does not seem to have any flexibility. The wrinkles are very set in. So I came to you once and you suggested the Pintra deep wrinkle treatment. I followed your recommendation and had 3 treatments so far (you recommended 8, but I’ve not had them all). My skin is so improved after the three treatments I am elated. My friends notice also. The products you make and recommend are amazing and so different. I believe they are definitely a contributing factor to my improvement. I look forward to completing my series as you said it takes several months afterwards to see the results of improved collagen, etc. Thanks so much for what you do and know – your work is not typical for aestheticians.
Brea, you are amazing! I am nearly 69. I came to you because I have been dealing with adult acne for quite some time. As I mentioned to you, I’d been seeing a dermatologist for the past two years. I still have the same acne, nothing worked. Out of frustration, I began a search for an alternative. I found you. After one treatment, you discovered my problem and when I came back to see you the next month after my facial and product purchase, my skin was amazing. You uncovered the real problem with my skin and I am so grateful. I can’t thank you enough! Like I said, you are amazing!Melanie S - Asheville
I called you for an appointment for my son. I was so impressed with your qualifications and what you seemed to know about acne. My son is 18 and has been using various medications, yet he still has skin problems. While I did not sit in the room with you during his treatment, you did bring me in to see what was going on with his skin. I had no idea how to see what you were seeing. I was also impressed with how you took time to explain your work, what you were going to do and then showed me what you did. He will be away at school for the next 5 months, but I can promise you when he gets back, we will return and get on a regular program with you. Thanks for shedding some light on his problem.Michelle W - Asheville
I love the professional way you wax. I’ve been hesitant about getting a Brazilian bikini wax because it seemed so humiliating. I have heard some crazy stories. I just could not do it. One of my friends recommended you and it was a great experience. I felt you respected my privacy and dignity. It was definitely not as painful as I imagined. Looking forward to coming again.Nicole J - Arden
Phone call from Alaine (who suffers with severe headaches and migraines):
Hi Brea – I had to call you to tell you the headache treatment you gave me worked. I have not had a headache since last week when you gave me the treatment. I really appreciate what you do and the knowledge your bring to your treatments. The treatment was so different and unexpected, yet so much appreciated. ThankAlaine D - Asheville
When I walked in, I was happy to see how clean the place was and oh, it smells great as well. You have made a wonderful atmosphere for relaxation in the facial room. I could not believe how “uncluttered” the room was. It has a zen feel. You gave me a splendid facial like nothing I’ve experienced. It left my skin feeling wonderful and I was so relaxed when I left. My skin looks and feels great days later. I can’t wait to come back again.Charles Mary C - Asheville
The best facial I’ve ever had and I’ve had many!Mary Ann T - Asheville
I have had two treatments for permanent underarm hair removal. It was a pleasant experience. I had a couple of hot spots, but Brea explained I may have that. I am happy to say that it has been 5 weeks since my last treatment and I don’t see much hair coming back. I started the treatments because they were on special, I thought I would give it a try. I am very happy and think I’ll work on my lower legs next. Thanks so much Brea.Kirsten J - Asheville
Dear Brea, I wanted to write to you to let everyone know how impressed I’ve been with the permanent hair removal treatment I received from you. I came in because I’ve developed a hairy chin (not a welcome development) in my mid-30’s. You recommended the super hair removal. During the first treatment you described “the smell of success”. I thought that was a great way to describe the hair being destroyed. It’s only taken three treatments and I may have one or two hairs remaining and they are barely visible. The way it’s been going, the next treatment should get them. I’ve decided to have my underarms done the next time I come in and then move from there to legs. And just as important as the results is the pricing for this service. I’ve always heard laser treatments were expensive and I never looked into it. I saw your hair removal service was very reasonable and affordable. Thank you for your help – I am very happy with my results at this point. (Note from Brea – our Super Hair Removal system is not laser)Ashleigh M - Asheville
Here is an update for you to post on your website. I’ve not only had 5 of the pintra treatments, but you suggested the rejuvenate oxygen infusion treatment which I have incorporated into the mix by alternating. It is going so great I had to write. It seems that my skin is becoming more pliable and receptive to the infusion treatments. The deep moisture is softening the wrinkles and I’m sure part of that is the pintra treatment. The combination is just wonderful for my skin. This has been a painless experience and I’m so happy I found you. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
Here’s a little review for you, if you want to add it to your site. You have my confidence!
After years of struggling with acne and many failed “treatment” options, I felt defeated and toyed with the idea of Accutane. After all things considered I could not justify putting my body through the harsh process for the sake of vanity. I was apprehensive that anything or anyone could really treat my problem skin but decided to give a more holistic approach a try and contact Brea and I am so glad I did! It’s been about three months and Brea has totally transformed my skin through her products and services. Brea is gifted at what she does and genuinely cares about her clients – she is warm-hearted and her level of professionalism is unmatched. I would recommend her to anyone. — Thank you Brea, I feel spoiled. You are incredible!!!Julia L - Asheville
Dear Brea, I discovered you online. During the facial, you began to describe my entire life as well as my mother’s. No wonder I had acne. You told me things I had never heard and you were right on target. I am 40 years old and can’t remember when I did not have acne. I am writing to say how impressed I was with the consultation and facial. I look forward to seeing how your recommendations turn out for my skin. Thanks for your help!Kim B - Asheville
I came to Brea with a list of everything I have had done to my skin since I was 12 years old. I used over-the-counter products and saw medical dermatologists. Nothing worked! Brea cleared my skin, recommended products and I am happy to say that after 4 years, I still have clear skin. I am 44 years old.Melody C - Houston
Dear Brea, I’ve been receiving facials since I was 16. My mom would take me to see her aesthetician in Florida when we lived there. I’ve been living in Black Mountain for 3 years and have not found the type of facial that I really like. I’ve been seeing someone regularly in Asheville, and it was okay, better than nothing. One day I decided to look around on the web and found your website. I was hopeful after reading the reviews and your background and history. I am writing to urge everyone who finds your website to “run, don’t walk” (so to speak) to get a facial with you. Your techniques are beyond anything I’ve experienced including my favorite aesthetician in Florida. I am so happy because now I have found my home for facials. I’ll be spreading the word about you. Thank you Brea!!!Amanda L - Asheville
Dear Brea – thank you for suggesting the new treatment you offer. I had a huge company conference last week and I was a little nervous about meeting everyone. I wanted to look my very best. The Claritas treatment you recommended for my face gave me a beautiful look. You indicated I would have glowing, smooth skin and I did. My skin was radiant and my makeup went on so smooth. thank you again for the suggestion. I will definitely have the Claritas treatment again.Sienna T - Asheville
