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!

Brea – I wanted to send you this email for your future patients to see. I know that reviews and testimonials are important. I’ve done everything to help my skin. I’ve been desperate for so many years. I’ve bounced from dermatologist to dermatologist. I’m sorry to say they have not been much help. I don’t understand with all the training they have that they’ve not been able to help me. Brea my dear, you have been a godsend to my skin problems. No one and I mean NO ONE has been able to help me. But you did. You listened to me for 30 or so minutes explain all that I’ve been through with doctors. The final straw was when one doctor recommended Accutane. I just could not stand the thought of putting that poison in my body. You agreed it was not a good idea, especially for my particular skin problem. It’s been a struggle to get my skin where it is today, but you told me it would not be easy. I’ve come in as regularly as I could afford, and my skin is about 80-85% better and I’ve not taken an antibiotic since I met you. PS to your new clients – she explains why antibiotics are not for all skin problems. Brea, thank you so much for your time, your knowledge, your expert skills and above your kind understanding of my skin problems. You were a life raft for my skin problems and I am forever grateful.

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.

Like so many teens, our daughter has broken out with bad acne. We tried every type of acne treatment out there and nothing seemed to work. The acne was beginning to effect her self esteem. Brea has been a life saver! She helps us and our daughter understand why she has acne and what she can do to prevent it. Brea has been honest, kind and professional. It has been 6 weeks and my daughters skin is looking great! Thank God we found Brea!

Thanks to Brea! I love having facials with her. She makes me feel so special and relaxed. Cocooned is the word that comes to mind. Luxurious oils, creams, aromatic potions and lotions! Everything feels and smells great! I can’t say it enough “my skin loves it all” and really does look better after some regular facials. I have found my permanent place for getting facials! Thanks again!!!

Really good facial. I liked the atmosphere as well.

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!!!

The 30 minute consultation is the best. I have acne and I consider it as severe acne. After speaking with Brea and her knowledge about how the skin works, I signed up for a basic extraction treatment for 30 minutes. She explained it would take several regular treatments, but that I would see results after the first. I must admit I am impatient and kind of expect to see something right away or I’m moving on to the next thing, something has to work — right? Brea explained how my skin would change and what to expect and when to expect it. She was right on. I gave it a couple of weeks in disbelief thinking just another hopeful idea and what was I thinking. I’ve met with a lot of people searching for help. I thought this was just another wasted expense, that it was not working, but others noticed my skin looked better so i went back for another treatment. After three treatments, I finally saw what others were seeing from the beginning. It is so hard to see results when one focuses on the bad and can’t see the good. My skin is taking on a new look and I’ll be seeing Brea every two weeks for continued results. I think she is excellent and can’t wait to see the future for my skin. Like I said, I am impatient and it was hard for me, but it has definitely been worth the wait.

The following review is from a client who comes for lash tinting on a regular basis. Last visit we decided to add a brow tint. She has had the tinting done previously over the years with other technicians and they were never able to get an effective tint to the gray in her brows.
“I’m pleased with my brows which you tinted last week. They are holding up well so far. Fingers crossed I can get a few weeks out of them.”

While visiting family in the Asheville area, I decided to get a facial. I was here for a wedding and wanted my skin to look a little brighter and fresh for my niece’s wedding. I found Virtu on the internet. After reading reviews and Brea’s background, I was impressed enough to give her a try. I was so impressed with the results. The most amazing thing happened at the wedding. I received 3 compliments from family (they did not know I was getting a facial). They commented on how beautiful my skin was. And then it got even better. Two attendees, women I did not know, independently came to me and one said my skin was “stunning” and the other said my skin had a “special glow”. How does that make me feel? Well, I’ll tell you it felt GREAT! Thanks so much Brea for what ever it is that you do. When I visit family, I’ll always make seeing you part of the trip. SJ

Yesterday (5-5-18) was my first consult and visit at Virtu and it was a great experience! I am definitely returning for other services. Brea was very knowledgeable and she was able to answer all of my questions. I have been looking for a well informed person, like Brea, for years and I am so grateful. I am absolutely referring all of my family and friends here! 🙂

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.

The best facial I’ve ever had and I’ve had many!

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
Brea is a true professional. I consulted about my skin. She answered my questions, explained what she thought was going on and then recommended a facial treatment to fit my budget and still get results. I don’t have a lot of discretionary income so it was a pleasure to speak with someone who took care to address my concerns both about my skin and my budget. I went in for the recommended treatment and it was perfect. My skin is definitely better than before, much softer, feels smoother and looks good. I can’t go often, but when I can spare the cash, I’ll definitely go back to see her. Thank you Brea.
Markanna H - Asheville
Your specials prompted me to come see you. I’ve been struggling with a rough complexion for a while now. The microdermabrasion treatment was very effective and made my skin so smooth. Thanks again. I really like the way you work. Your pricing is reasonable and the specials are fantastic.

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)

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!!!!!
Lily G - Black Mountain
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.
