Comments from some of our clients

"I’ve been a client of Chez Aesthete for at least a decade. I’ve been the beneficiary of Ann Marie Jenkins’ expertise, of her respect for personal dignity, and of her understanding that feeling joy about the condition in which one appears in the world is fundamental to a sense of well-being."

"Ann Marie Jenkins is a highly skilled clinical aesthetician who over many years has proven her ability to accurately analyze her clients’ skin. Her ability to do so has aided in keeping her clients healthy due to early detection of skin abnormalities. She also advises her clients on all the up-to-date cosmetic procedures available. I would recommend her with confidence."

"Chez Aesthete has been treating my skin for over 15 years. I owe all the compliments I receive on my skin to Ann Marie. Since moving to Sonoma I have experienced other facials and the results were not as good, my skin misses Ann Marie’s experience and expertise she is absolutely the best!"

"Ann Marie Jenkins has been my aesthetician for the past 13 years because of the excellent facials she provides for me monthly. She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, clean and uses products that enhance the quality of my skin. It’s not just a job for Anna, it is a way of life for her and her clients benefit greatly. I’ve tried other aestheticians over the years but none have compared to Anna’s facials."

“A facial at Chez Aesthete is a peaceful and welcoming retreat from the world. The bonus is leaving with a glowing face after she patiently works away at refining my skin. An amazing skin advocate, she set me up with a personalized skin care regimen that fits both my lifestyle and my skin and that I have been able to easily maintain for the past 7 years. Ann Marie is passionate about skin care and my skin thanks her!”
