Love the Skin You’re In: Vitality Med Spa offers full-service boutique skincare experience

Stepping out in faith, Tavia Osterstock, licensed esthetician, partnered in opening Vitality Med Spa in the heart of Bluffton.

Blessitt, a medical doctor who had taken some family time, was now ready to go back to work with a focus on hormone replacement therapy and aesthetic injectables. Shortly after, Joanie Vilcheck, RN, joined Osterstock and Blessitt in providing IV vitamin therapy to further complete their spa services.

WHAT ABOUT ME? Self-care: The gift that keeps on giving

Raise your hand if you are exhausted: your multi-tasking, people-pleasing personality keeps you going through the motions, but your body, mind and spirit are screaming for a break.

Effortless Beauty: Permanent Cosmetics HHI offers life-changing options for enhancing your appearance

Are your eyebrows missing in action? Are your lips disappearing into your face? Are you tired of hiding embarrassing scars? Maybe it’s time to consider a more permanent solution than traditional makeup, which is not only time-consuming to apply but often melts off when you walk out the door.

According to Sarah Rhoads, owner of Permanent Cosmetics HHI (PCHHI) people choose to get permanent cosmetics for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s about saving time. (Imagine rolling out of bed with your brows and/or lips already done for the day!) For others, it’s a matter of no longer being able to apply makeup skillfully due to vision changes or decreased dexterity.
