Employee Spotlight: Erika Aleman, RN, BSN, CANS

What really makes Evolutions special is our wonderful employees.  When we started Evolutions Medical Spa back in 2005 we had 5 employees. We are now up to 30! They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be.  We are starting this feature to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions’ team. This month we are highlighting one of our nurses, Erika Aleman, RN, BSN, CANS and our Lead Massage Therapist,  Kristen Aguilar. Medical Spa in Santa Barbara - Eric Aleman

Employee Profile – Erika Aleman  

Erika has been working with Evolutions for over 2 years.  In October of 2018 she earned her Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS) certification, placing her among a select group of Registered Nurses nationally who have not only met the rigorous requirements for this designation, but also passed an extremely thorough exam on aesthetics. (Polly Dursum and Sue Manseau are also CANS certified).  In addition to being a skilled and compassionate nurse, Erika is fluent in Spanish.  We are lucky to have her as part of the Evolutions’ team!

What is the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had (prior to Evolutions)?

I worked at an auto parts store during my college years.  I did everything from cashiering, to testing batteries and alternators, to ordering parts.  I can probably name more car parts than the average male!  

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

Prior to starting at Evolutions I was contemplating a career change.  I appreciate that the Perkins gave me the opportunity to train and work here because I know I found what I was meant to do.  I absolutely love what I do, my co-workers are amazing, and my clients are the best!

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

I don’t have a “favorite” (OK maybe filler) but I love the challenges that come with all the treatments we perform.  There are options for treating a client’s concerns and I like that we can customize out treatments to help them address their concerns so they look and feel their best.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

Definitely a deep tissue massage from the day spa!  I also enjoy  collagen-stimulating treatments on the medical side such as Sculptra and Ultherapy because I prefer to age backwards.

What is your #1 home care product sold at Evolutions?  Why?

Do I really have to choose just one?  We have a beautiful selection of products and I use many of them.  My favorite line is NIA 24 because I have seen great results with their products.  Obagi Elastiderm eye cream is a must as is tretinoin.  I also have to mention the Luzern Hydra-Enzyme masque.  It’s my special treat for my skin at least once per week.

What is your favorite quote / mantra / words of wisdom?

Be positive, be kind, and look for the good in others.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I skipped the 7th grade.  I attended a private school where you worked at your own pace.  Apparently I worked quickly.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my husband and four kids.  They are my world!  I also enjoying shopping (a little too much) and exercising (riding my beach cruiser, yoga, and interval training).

Featured Day Spa Treatment: DermaSweep MD

As our skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down. Exfoliating treatments at Evolutions work to speed up the natural cell turnover and help you to achieve and maintain clear, healthy, youthful-looking skin.

DermaSweep MD is our most advanced exfoliation treatment. It uses a variable-level vacuum system to gently lift the skin as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin layer quickly and painlessly. Increased blood flow in the treated area encourages collagen formation, toning, and firming of the skin.

A DermaSweep treatment also includes an Epi-Fusion. You aesthetician will help you choose a skin specific topical solution that is designed to treat common concerns such as photodamage / sun-damaged skin, acne, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation. The solution is applied under vacuum pressure while the system gently removes dead skin cells.

The treatment is relaxing and designed to improve overall skin health and you will notice the difference in your skin after one treatment. DermaSweep MD is $165 per treatment or purchase a series of 6 for $825 (1 free).

Contact us at (805) 695-2160 to schedule your DermaSweep MD appointment.

Evolutions Day Spa: Winter Seasonal Scrub

Get in the holiday spirit and beat the winter dry skin woes with our Cranberry Brown Sugar Scrub.  

Evolutions Day Spa Winter Scrub

This light and fruity scrub gives a rich, warm and soothing sensation that leaves your skin with the sweet smell of cranberry throughout the day. Containing organic brown sugar infused with Basil, Gingko, Sage and Vitamin E, this scrub gently exfoliates old skin while locking in vital moisture to keep skin healthy and visibly radiant.

Brown sugar contains AHAs, which help to even skin tone and allow for gentle exfoliation. The synergy of the Ayurvedic oils and brown sugar produces natural fatty acids, which lock in moisture, firm the skin, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave skin silky smooth.

This amazing scrub lasts for 60 minutes and is $120.

It will be available through January 31, 2019, so book your Winter Seasonal Scrub now to make sure you don’t miss it!
