I’ve seen Danny for her Dermal Remodeling sessions twice now, about a year between the two sessions. After my first session I knew Danny was the practitioner I’d been waiting for! Her work is the high quality, and high caliber work I seek out, that can be hard to find! Danny is thorough, sensitive, performs DEEP work, and educates me nearly the whole time I’m on her table, and beyond. I found her to be available after my sessions were complete, when I had questions about home care, and I find that invaluable! The work itself is potent, and the benefits can be maintained with a home regimen; which I like because I feel empowered by that. Her products, techniques and philosophies make so much sense to me, and are based in wholeness and health of the skin on many layers. I love the smell of the products she uses and stands by, and I feel like I am nourishing my skin with good food, rather than chemicals! When receiving a treatment from Danny, I found her to address the congestion in my skin with an attitude of normalcy. I know this is her specialty and her business afterall, but I felt no hints of shaming or judgement, just sincere, thorough, and did I mention DEEP cleansing, extracting, and nourishing attention and treatment. It felt so good to receive care from someone so knowledgeable, with such an open heart and mind – who was committed to sharing her knowledge, insights, and information.
I have a history with problematic areas of my skin; it had (and still has) a profoundly deep emotional impact on me, an impact of shame, and hiding, and self hate. I’ve spent a lot of time, energy and money on skin treatments, with varying degrees of success and feelings of being met on both the physical level and the emotional level by services and practitioners. I want to leave a treatment feeling that my skin has been truly cleansed and worked, and I’m leaving with some nuggets of wisdom to carry on outside of the treatment room. I seek out HIGH quality care and attention when it comes to my skin, and I found my treatments with Danny to hit all of these marks beyond my expectations.
To be really honest, the first 1-3 days post dermal remodeling treatment were challenging. My skin went through a recovery process, and I felt a little self-conscious those first few days after my treatment. There was still some purging my skin was going through, which felt like a good sign that the work we had done was still working. I had several whiteheads that showed up in those days after my treatment, but when I would wash my face and use the dermal nutrients and face butter they would heal beautifully. I could see the cycle of congestion moving through. Also in those first days, some parts felt tender and a little inflamed, certain areas that received very deep work needed special care, with a first aid gel (all special care I received coaching and encouragement from Danny about before I left her office). Then after 3 days, my skin began to glow and look so healthy and whole. The feeling of clarity and cleanliness felt substantial. I am totally committed to my home care routine, and I can see the long-lasting impact it can have.
Danny’s high quality services come at a cost, and I find the cost to be well worth it, given I’m only spending that money on one in-office visit a year. I have felt so happy with my skin in the last year! It feels so good to know I have someone in my corner that will help me to achieve the most beautiful healthy skin that I’ve dreamt of having! I’m so grateful for Danny.
I wanted to write a review for Danny to be shared on her website because I found Skin harmonics by searching online and reading reviews like this one. When I found Danny’s page at first.. it seemed to good to be true. For those of you who have ever experienced rosacea before, you know of the struggle when trying to find an aesthetician, products or something, literally ANYTHING, to help such delicate angry skin.
I developed rosacea, pretty severely and abruptly after months and months of using retin-a products on my already fragile face. To say I was devastated would not even slightly cover how I was feeling. I was truly depressed. That might seem vain to some, but I had never experienced rosacea before and it completely changed the way I lived my life. I could no longer were makeup because everything irritated my skin and going out in public with out it made me feel incredibly anxious. I could no longer be out in the sun, let alone just be out and about without that constant burning sensation. It was a reminder of this issue I now had to deal with. It was always on my mind and became a very big stress in my life.
The whole situation introduced me to the world of natural skincare. I couldn’t tolerate any commercial products so I figured I’d venture into the holistic side of caring for my skin. I started using natural oils and moisturizers on my face, and even though I seen some changes in my skin, it wasn’t enough to calm all the sensitivity and constant irritation I was dealing with. As Danny mentions on her page, European skincare is great and all but it only reaches the surface. I needed something to help resolve all the damage I had done to my poor face on a deeper level.
I contacted Danny in April of 2016, she replied to my e-mail within a few minutes. We spoke on the phone and shortly after a couple of hours and I knew I had to work with her. Her knowledge was empowering and I felt so hopeful. She sent me a starter package with a rose water mist, an HA serum, a nutrient serum and her butter.
At first, I hated her butter because of the way it looked once applied, but I persevered. And I’m so glad that I did because it is now my favourite item of the kit 🙂. Till this day, it is the only moisturizer I can use that truly helps calm my skin and keeps it hydrated. No other oil has been able to do so, no matter how much I’d put on. I was not able to use her nutrient serums right away, because my skin was too reactive. Over the past couple of months I have been integrating them into my routine more and more, and though I still have a long way to go, Danny’s products are the only products that have given me relief and results. I’m slowly making my way to clear, calm, normal skin. She’s given me hope again and my whole attitude has changed. I’m feeling more confident in myself!
Even though we don’t live in the same country, she ALWAYS replies to my messages within a day or two and continues to send me lovely packages of her products. She’s a great support, she’s just awesome. I don’t doubt that this process of healing would be so much quicker if I could work with Danny in person, but her skincare alone has been enough for me so far. I am planning a trip to her spa for an in person consultation and her special facials, but until then I’m sticking to this regimen and I strongly encourage whoever is reading this to do the same. It is so so so worth it.
THANK YOU DANNY ❤
My Testimonial/Love Letter to Danny
I met Danny in 2008 in an awesome little spa she was running in Taos NM.
She had some extremely revolutionary ideas about skin care that I had never heard before. Phrases like “moisturized and nourished skin never ages”. She was all about moisturizing and feeding your skin with the right ingredients and did not believe in micro-derm abrasions or the “exfoliate your face off” dynamics that I had lived by up until I met her. I have oily skin so the idea of uber moisture was not appealing to me at all. Danny promised that if I just followed her skin care regime it would all mellow out and whaddya know….it did! I live in Golden, CO so I tried to visit her skin sanctuary as much as I could at least a few times a year as we go to Taos often. I had never had a facial like the one Danny gives. It was amazing and my skin was really responding.
Then she up and moved to Santa Barbara! I thought I was going to die!
I stayed in touch with her over the years buying product from her and getting endless skin advice and care from her from a far. Then one day she tells me she is opening a studio in Boulder about 35 minutes from my house! I couldn’t believe it!
Reunited at last! I was so excited! I told all my friends…we went to her open house and I got on track again.
I then realized that I had only been doing like half of her routine for skin care, if that…I got on track, got a facial and got all the products which is a big investment. However too me, as someone who has struggled with my skin all of my life, it was truly life changing. First of all, I had two white moles on my face that two dermatologists and my local esthetician of several years told me were white moles that I would have to have removed by a plastic surgeon which would be very expensive and would likely leave a scar so not really worth it…..like the scar would be more noticeable than the moles type thing. I’ve had these for years now and just sort of resigned myself to the fact that they were here to stay. I hated them with a passion. One was on my chin and was on the side of my nose. The one on my chin was really big …the one on the side of my nose was a little smaller but looked like a really big white head you can imagine on the side of the nose! Sure I covered it all with makeup but the bumps were still noticeable. In fact my whole face was sort of bumpy.
My local esthetician was pretty good with removing milia or so I thought….. until I had a facial from the new and improved Danny who now has 10 more years of experience under her belt and has now become a jedi master with her lancet.
Milia for those of you lucky enough to never have them are a small white or yellowish nodule resembling a millet seed, produced in the skin by the retention of sebaceous secretion. The only way to remove them are to poke them with a lancet to get them out.
So I am now in the facial I have been waiting for years to get. It is $425 which can sound steep for a facial, but I assure you it is worth every penny and more. Danny worked on me in two sessions and did so many extractions that it made my local gal look like an amateur. When Danny says “no pore left behind” she means it! I had this huge hole in my forehead that has been there for years and come to find out a milia was down in there so it was pulling it apart even further! Danny said it would look much better and it is so tiny now I barely notice it. So we come to my nose and she sees the thing I tell her is a white mole and ask her advice. She starts poking it with lancet and it is a giant milia!!! She annihilates it! Then I beg her to check out the huge one on my chin…sure enough also a milia and she goes SUMO on it. They are now gone from my life, face and memory. Folks, I would have paid a lot more than $500 at a plastic surgeons office to remove those. SO WORTH IT.
I can also be a testimonial to the fact that you must use all of her routine not just some- or it won’t work …trust me I did it for years. Also, just her skin care routine will only get you so far. You need a facial, It is unlike anything you have ever experienced. Everything works hand in hand so go for it. Your skin deserves it!
I had the sort of skin that I never went out in public without foundation ever and if I happened to run into people when I was bare faced I truly felt awful.
Danny told me it would take a few weeks to heal up from it all and with faithful use of her new skin care routine my skin would be completely different in a year.
Well folks I can tell you my skin was completely different after just two weeks. My husband cannot believe it! It was the best valentine he ever gave me! I can now go without foundation. I have the confidence to know how great my skin looks and I was in Mexico with a huge group of friends and barely wore any makeup the entire time. It was amazing! So totally freeing.
Now when I wear foundation my skin looks a million times better, clearer, and smoother, than before. Foundation can only mask so much. Because Danny did all those extractions my skin is much smoother and less bumpy. I also had really red irritated looking cheeks which have now totally cleared up.
I have learned to embrace my shine instead of tying to powder it off constantly. She even sells a product to add shine so I guess I’m pretty lucky.
I owe it all to Danny. I cannot even express how grateful I am that she is back in my life and taking care of my skin. Working with Danny is like winning the GREAT SKIN LOTTERY! I have searched high and low locally for someone like Danny when she was away and believe me they don’t exist. I am so incredibly lucky to be able to work with Danny again and finally have the amazing skin I have wished for all my life.
Seriously, do yourself a favor and book with her today!
Finally I am sending a testimonial about your wonderful products. I love and hope maybe a few were directed to you website by the sponsorship I put on our auction from you. I appreciate you so much. Feel free to edit, add more detail, use Ramloti or Deborah Wood as you like and use on Facebook, I am happy to help you be tremendously successful. I love you. I am also almost out of serum since you sent none last time, could you send some more. I love you and here is the testimonial.
My Skin Has Never Been Happier!
I have been using Skin Harmonics for over four years now, and I can barely imagine a day without it! It is like the day begins when I pamper my face with the rose spritz, the master serum, followed by the face butter. I look years younger and often hear this from my friends. The evening routine makes me feel like I am going to bed really having taken care of my face, oh and I love the sweet smell of the face butter all night.
During the Dermal Remodeling I knew I was in the hands of an expert. Danny hydrated my face so deeply and the removal of old debris from my cells was so gently and carefully done, this was all followed by the lavish nourishment with these wonderful products. I left the office with deeply radiant skin that felt so healthy and whole again. I am so grateful for these products in my life.
I swear my skin looks better than it has my ENTIRE life…thank you!!! You’ve worked a miracle hahaha!
I need more products:) I need to stock up for the summer!
After another year-plus of working with Danny, my skin is the healthiest it’s been since before I hit puberty.
Prior to working with Danny, my skin was dry and looked thin and dull. I’d been using organic skin care products and was mostly unimpressed by the results… but I thought that was just the natural result of having skin that’s maturing. I regularly experienced breakouts around my monthly menstruation and struggled with flakiness on my cheeks and around my eyes. I’d get facials at a local salon semi-regularly but I never experienced any real lasting results.
Danny and her methodology shifted all of this for me. After my first meeting with her, I knew I had to work with her. All the information she shared with me about how the skin works and what supports it in thriving made so much sense to me that there was no way I could go back to caring for my skin in the way I’d been doing it before. I committed to using the regimen of products she recommended. I’d had a fairly simple skincare routine up until that point, so taking this step was a bit of an investment for me. But I was willing to test it out to see what might be possible for my skin.
I started seeing results immediately – within 2 weeks my skin was softer and more supple than I ever could have imagined, and my makeup was going on more smoothly and evenly. Only a few months after I started working with Danny, my wedding day arrived, and I felt absolutely radiant thanks to her support and knowledge.
And a year and a half later, I continue to love how my skin is evolving. I rarely get breakouts, and when I do, they are barely noticeable. Danny’s products significantly speed up the healing and recovery process if I ever have an abrasion on my skin or am dealing with a pimple. My skin looks resilient, healthy and vital.
Beyond all this, I’m so clear that my “investment” in Danny’s skin care regimen has saved me so much money in the long run – money I would’ve spent on facials and treatments at the dermatologist’s office that I no longer need or want. In the big picture, I’ve actually dramatically simplified my skin care routine and the resources I put toward it. Danny helped me put my skincare maintenance on autopilot so that I’m freed up to put my creative energy toward other things.
And beyond all of this, she’s an incredible human being whose integrity and caring is apparent in every single communication I have with her!
Wow, I never would have believed it but I’ve been going around without wearing foundation the last several days (this has not happened in decades). My skin is so happy and beautiful it would be a shame to cover it up! You told me it would happen and it’s true. My skin feels and looks alive, honest and glowing. You’re a miracle worker!
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I travel 500 miles for the amazing extensive facials! I began using Danny’s products four years ago and am truly grateful for the transformational results. I’m nearly 70 (never too late) and even my dermatologist raves how lovely my skin is. Heartfelt thanks!
I have to say that when I started working with Danny I was a dermatologist junkie, peels injections the works, and then river sent me her way and my skin detoxed for a year! And now my skin looks so beautiful. I get so many compliments and no one ever can tell how old I am!!! Thank you so much for your care and attention! I so love being all natural. Thanks for giving me the support I needed to be courageous enough to buck the trend.
