Why Skintastic

Why Skintastic?


Skintastic is an effective vehicle for treating the skin as well as the mind and body. It is a powerful multi-pronged approach to skin care that its founder, Karen Petronaci, has carefully crafted from her years as a skillful aesthetician and reiki practitioner.  What makes this practice unique is Karen's intuitive ability to connect with and guide her clients through the physical (skin and body)  emotional and spiritual realm.

Our skin care wellness therapies at Skintastic, in Nutley, New Jersey are individualized to accommodate one's specific skin care requirements and goals.

We use skincare products that are based on corneotherapeutic science and principles with all of our skin care wellness therapies and facial technologies. We will  create personal formulations with the use of special nutritive serum blends, moisturizers and masks to repair, restore, regenerate some of the most challenging skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, texture irregularities, loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.  All  of our hands-on skin care therapies include Karen's signature facial massages, deep pore cleaning, extractions, eye and neck treatment and the use of aesthetic technologies to enhance product penetration, perform lymphatic drainage, brighten and firm skin.  You will not only leave with a radiant glow but an overall feeling of peace and tranquility.
