Savant Skin Care offers innovative treatments

STAFF PHOTOS: VERN UYETAKE  - Azar Salehi with Savant Skin Care provides innovative treatments for her clients.

If you have noticed that area men and women are looking more beautiful lately, it could be due to Azar Salehi. The licensed aesthetician and skin care consultant moved her Savant Skin Care salon from Multnomah Village to Bangy Road six months ago and is sharing her innovative skincare techniques with area residents.

Salehi has been in the beauty business for more than 20 years. Her background includes providing permanent makeup and post-surgical reconstructive cosmetic tattooing such as creating nipples for women who had undergone breast removal surgery. As rewarding as that work is, her first love is helping people feel rejuvenated and look their best.

Salehi begins by assessing the client’s skin type and skincare regime, and then creates a treatment plan to help the client achieve their desired outcome.

“I consider the client’s skin and age, and give them knowledge about how best to work with their skin,” she said. “I give them education about their personal skin.”

She provides a variety of facials that are suitable for all skin types, and facials suitable for acne-prone skin and aging skin. She also offers microcurrent treatment, which can sculpt sagging muscles and tone the skin around the eyebrows, eyes and neck, leaving the skin smoother and with a more contoured appearance, and ultrasonic treatment, which suppresses skin inflammation and stimulates collagen production to reduce fine lines. All facials include in-depth skin analysis and aftercare instructions.

“And I am the first person who gets to enjoy the results!” she said. “My clients are happy too.”

“She is a compassionate artist,” said client Donna Persico. She could attest to the effectiveness of the microcurrent treatment and the relaxing quality of Salehi’s facials.

“It is like exercise for your skin,” Salehi said. “When you exercise your muscles get stronger. The microcurrent results in taut skin.”

For lasting results, Salehi recommends a consecutive series of weekly microcurrent treatments, followed by monthly maintenance.

Facials can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes to complete; the Mommy Express Facial takes just 30 minutes and includes a deep pore cleaning, ultrasonic gentle exfoliation, deep hydrating moisturizer, and Epionce firming mask.

Salehi uses Epionce botanical products exclusively.

Savant Skin Care is located inside Mascola’s Salon, 15154 S.W. Bangy Road in Lake Oswego. To learn more, visit FacialSavant.com or call Salehi at 503-522-5988.
