My Story

About Luxury Lotus Spa -

Esther The Esthetician

Hi there, Welcome!! It's Esther The Esthetician here. I'm passionate about what I do as a skincare professional. I'm an island girl who can not sing or dance yet lol. I'm a middlevert (half introvert & extrovert), I am a bit awkward and nerdy at times, I'm full of positive energy. Equally important, I love dolphins and art. 

In the same way, one of my favorite thing to do is, sketch or read while lounging around at the beach. That's mainly because I can hear the sound of the waves. Also, being near water is extremely relaxing & soothing for my mind, body, and Spirit. For this reason, I'm a strong believer in whatever you think and/or surround yourself with, you become... 

Fun Facts About Me & The Spa

Work History-About Luxury Lotus Spa

For instance, from 2006-2016, I worked as a courtroom clerk (The clerk, not the court reporter) - I've had the opportunity of being the clerk on traffic, misdemeanor, and felony case hearings and trials. Of course, I enjoyed going to court every day- I learned something new every day. Furthermore, I had the opportunity of working closely with, public, court reporters, clerks, judges, attorneys, police officers, and various government personnel & agencies.

For instance, I'm certified to treat acne, acne, scars, and post-acne scarring for clients with brown skin like myself. In the same way, our skin is extremely delicate and requires specialized attention and care. For this reason, having been where you are today, I understand your struggles.

My Janelle Monae, Beyonce, and Chloe and Halle summer Experience!

Undoubtedly, summer 2018 was full of surprises for me!! For instance, I went to my first-ever live concert in 2018 (at the age of 31!!). Of course, that summer, I ended up meeting and taking a picture with Janelle Monae In St. Pete, Florida (FL) - which I have hanging in our skincare boutique lobby proudly lol.

Of course, you will definitely see it when you come in :-). That same summer, I ended up seeing Beyonce and Chloe & Halle perform live in Orlando, Florida. Indeed, that was a summer to remember. It was the same summer I was officially diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 31 - With no known family history of Breast Cancer.

With the grace and mercy of God, plus, daily prayer, and support from family, friends, and a hand full nurse who genuinely cares, I can officially say, I'm a breast cancer survivor. I document the entire journey on my personal Instagram highlights. Of course, that battle left my skin looking extremely rough! see for yourself...

Our Profession Bio

About Luxury Lotus Spa - Esther The Esthetician

About Luxury Lotus Spa - Esther The Esthetician

My journey to becoming a beauty expert goes back to 2010 with my own personal struggle with acne, acne scars, and ingrown hair. It is through my work learning how to first improve my own skincare, and then my passion to bring this knowledge to others, that I came to truly understand this guiding principle:

Beauty is a state of mind as much as a physical way of being.

In my eyes, all of my clients are beautiful. But you may have blemishes, scars, uneven skin tone, sensitive skin or other conditions that inhibit you from looking and feeling your best. My calling truly is to help you transform your self-image from the inside out, using state-of-the-art facial, body and waxing techniques to reveal your exquisite self.

Everyone is an individual, so there's no "one size fits all."

To best address your unique needs, I take the time to understand your goals and desires. and address your beauty care using skills honed through daily experience and ongoing education. Therefore, we take a multi-pronged approach to treat acne, acne scars, and ingrown hair using gentle chemical peels for mature skin (safe and gentle enough for darker/ethnic skin) or microdermabrasion for all skin types. Whatever you need, I’m here for you. Make-up should be optional. You deserve to have clear, smooth, and even skin. When I perform full body spa waxing services for women and men, I make sure that my clients are comfortable and at ease with the process.
