About me

I’m Christine Byer, licensed master esthetician from Miami, Florida. My husband and I moved to Austin in 2006. We love it here!

Why My Facials are Different: iontophoresis In my anti-aging facials I combine muscle-lifting techniques as well as skin texture enhancers (Infrared, Red and Amber LED technology, peels, masks etc.) for a more complete result. Most facials deal only with the epidermis, or top-most layer of the skin. While this is fine, I’ve discovered that adding muscle toning to every facial really gives an added punch that makes my clients say “WOW!”  Email me Christine-byer@austin.rr.com for a free eye treatment that will knock your socks off!* (First time clients only please.)

My Work Style/Ethic: waxing-eyebrowsMeticulous and methodical, I love doting on my clients. Clients say my made-for-massage-hands are very healing. When you leave my office not only looking better but feeling better – that’s an added bonus. (And you will look better, because my eagle eyes find every flaw while my agile hands correct them!) It was strange going back to beauty school after graduating from Indiana University, but I had to follow my heart. As the middle child of 6 kids, and one of 5 girls, I realized that I was the “groomer” of the family. I was always teasing (hair that is) and plucking and curling and primping and extracting and massaging and steaming everyone in my family just for fun. I thought, hmm…wonder if I could make a living doing what I love best. YES, I can! Education: BA Indiana University, 1992 (don’t tell anyone my real age!) Graduated from MedArt School of Esthetics, Miami, Florida 1999. Received my license from the State of Florida in 2000. Received my license from the State of Texas in 2006.

Post Graduate Skincare Classes I’ve attended. (Education is my passion. I’ll probably teach skincare in my next career.) thezoneI attend the International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica classesregularly. In 1983 Jane Wurwand (from England) founded these companies to boost the education of American skincare therapists. Students constantly asked Jane which products to use. Jane was so disappointed with all the artificial colors, fragrance and harmful ingredients in most skincare products at the time that she developed her own line, Dermalogica, in 1986. To this day, the company’s motto is still: No Harmful Ingredients to the Skin! classes Today the International Dermal Institute has locations all over the world, including Dallas and Houston. In the field, they are known as the Harvard of post-graduate education for skincare therapists. I was fortunate enough to work for Dermalogica in 2001, right before opening Rescue Skincare. It was the ultimate SKINCARE BOOT CAMP. I am forever grateful for the opportunity.

    I think it’s great that you included a bio – it not only lets people know about your qualifications but also about how much you care about your work.

    Christine gives the best facials. She has this machine called Jade, it’s amazing. It’s like having a mini face lift. It works wonders around the eyes and on the neck. I highly recommend her.

    I am so impressed by Christine’s knowledge that she shares in her newsletters. I have taken several of her tips and applied them to my skin care and I can feel the improvement. She is truly an exceptional expert in her field. Clients and estheticians can both benefit from her experience. Thanks for the tips! Keep ’em coming!
