The newly opened Nouveau, A Boutique Medspa specializes in skin care products and services designed to help clients age beautifully.
Carol Anderson, a registered nurse for 30 years, opened Nouveau on April 11 because she "desired to practice integrated skin care, recognizing the rate of internal and external variants affecting beauty and aging.
"Everyone wants to hold onto a youthful appearance," Carol said. "Nouveau was conceived to help the client understand the anatomy and physiology of aging and how to minimize the signs and symptoms of aging."
She has practiced aesthetic nursing with a plastic surgeon for the past 10 years and was the first nurse in Missouri to become a certified aesthetic nurse specialist.
Nouveau's services include facial fillers, facial sculpting and contouring; restoration through platelet-rich plasma; laser hair removal, broadband light treatment and skin tightening; face and body exfoliation; and microneedling. The spa's professional-grade skin care products include Skinceuticals, IS Clinical, Suki Organic and Tretenoin.
Building a lasting relationship with her clients is important to Carol.
"I love the opportunity to educate them about the condition of their skin and how they can maximize their beauty," she said.
Client Chrissie started seeing Carol "three years ago as I noticed signs of aging and had festoons under my eyes," she said. "Not only did she help me get rid of those festoons, but my overall skin's appearance and texture have never looked better."
Client Ann said: "Each experience at Nouveau Medspa is a delight. I really appreciate the naturally beautiful look Carol promotes as well as the time she takes with you to ensure best results."
The shop is running a summer promotion for its Forever Young treatment, which uses infrared light and heat to lighten, brighten, refine and tighten skin, followed by a full-body Salt Glo exfoliation treatment.
