Brooke Weatherford Kinross, owner of Beesa Skincare Studio, 2484 Ingleside Ave., Building A, Suite 101B, Macon, 733-7853, www.beesaskincare.com. Hours: By appointment only, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.
How long have you been in business?: "I started Beesa two years ago. ... I created the business because my passion is natural skin care, and I wanted to be able to offer people in Macon an alternative to medical spas and offer them a business where they could get top quality facials and waxings with natural products."
She has worked with other spas and been a aesthetician for 16 years.
"My focus is on products that don't contain artificial colors or artificial fragrances or any cancer-causing ingredients or hormone disrupting ingredients."
What do you like best about your job?: "I really just enjoy helping people feel better about themselves. I especially like dealing with clients who have hormone problems or acne resulting from hormones. So I try to work with them on not just finding the correct products that they need, but a more integrated approach to skin care that would involve evaluating lifestyle, diet and all the things that could be the root of the acne."
What is your specialty?: "I do facials, microdermabrasions, ... and I do full body waxing for women and men but with a focus on natural products with organic ingredients.
What are your future plans?: "I'm soon going to be adding eyelash extensions within the next month or so. Of course I'm always trying to research and find new organic skin care products especially from local vendors. ... A really long-term goal may be to expand."
