Every scar tells a story. Of course, there are some stories we’d prefer not to be reminded of, or at least not everyday. Whether it’s overcoming cancer, domestic violence, or surviving a catastrophe, many survivors face permanent scarring. Fortunately, there’s a new way to help clients heal. Exquisite Aesthetics is here to give clients a new lease on life. This accomplished team led by founder, Shawny Ellsworth, provides a wide range of services from microblading and skin rejuvenation to repigmentation and scar camouflage. Exquisite Aesthetics truly empathizes with their clients’ stories and works with them to achieve their goals.
Shawny Ellsworth has always been passionate about beauty and the medical world. But she also knew that if she wanted to run her own business, she would need to hustle. Shawny explains, “I worked hard and pretty much built it from the ground up with little to no direction. In fact, I was mostly surrounded by naysayers.” Her independent attitude is truly what founded Exquisite Aesthetics. Shawny maintaints, “I kept my head down and didn’t stop or listen to anyone. Now all the people that doubted me, want to train with me.”
Shawny’s hustle allowed her to find success in her own business. However, she hasn’t forgotten the “why” behind what she does- her clients. “My clients are some of the strongest people I know,” shares Shawny. “I’ve had the honor of repigmenting after mastectomies as well as camouflaging scars from past abuse. I want to turn something that was once a painful memory into art.” The team at Exquisite Aesthetics works hard to perfect their services, while also creating a safe and welcoming environment for clients.
They understand that some of their clients come from impossible situations.
It was this understanding of survivor strength that sparked the survivor donation program at Exquisite Aesthetics. In this program, one individual a month is nominated to receive a free service. “There’s no greater joy than giving back,” says the Exquisite Aesthetics team. “These people have overcome so much and we do the little part we can in restoring confidence back to our clients.”
Clients certainly agree. One in particular, Julia, received a life changing service from Exquisite Aesthetics after overcoming breast cancer at the age of 43. There’s the initial shock of the diagnosis, but the thing Julia wasn’t prepared for was the identity crisis after her mastectomy. “I just didn’t feel like myself,” she shares. After several months of healing, Julia opted for reconstructive surgery for her breasts. “Cancer stole so much from me, but I was ready to take it all back. The surgery certainly helped in that process.” However, even after surgery, Julia wanted to perfect the results. So, she sought out the team at Exquisite Aesthetics. Following an in depth consultation, the team suggested their Areola and Nipple Restoration service. “They made me feel so comfortable and restored my hope that my breasts could look like they once did.” Several weeks after her service, Julia went back to the team at Exquisite Aesthetics for a follow up appointment. “I remember looking in the mirror and saying, ‘I’m me again. I can’t believe it. I look like me,” shares Julia. This is just one of many stories.
When founder Shawny reflects back on Julia’s process, she smiles. “Some people equate success to money, but to me, success is when you serve the one in front of you.” Shawny knows that others are in the business to make money as it can be a very lucrative career. However, she will always put her clients first. “If you focus on people, you will never lose your purpose,” Shawny shares. “That’s the goal. People are the goal.”
Again, every scar tells a story, but that doesn’t mean we have to live with that story day in and day out. There’s a new way to help clients heal. Exquisite Aesthetics is here to give clients a new lease on life. Exquisite Aesthetics truly cares about their clients and will do whatever it takes to help them rewrite their stories.
