Aesthetically Speaking was established in February, 2014, in Reno, Nevada. Before moving to the Midtown District, Alana worked in a salon and spa. She is experienced in both day spa treatments as well as medical spa treatments. Alana also takes her experiences of working in a dermatological and plastic surgeon's establishment by combining her aesthetic knowledge with a more private, spa-like setting.
Alana primarily uses Image Skincare™ and Lira Clinical™ for her facials and spa services. She is also known for her extraordinary waxing skills. She uses a variety of different waxes, including Cirepil® hard wax. Alana’s clients have been known to travel across state lines for her “painless Brazilian wax” which leaves you feeling silky smooth for 2-8 weeks, giving you the confidence and comfort you expect from such intimate waxing experiences.
She carefully customizes her facials according to the products that are best for your precious skin type and your personal goals. She works with the natural and God-given tools that your body already possesses so you can keep your body and skin healthy. Alana seeks to stay current with the latest practices and research so that your beauty and skin needs can reach their highest potential. At Aesthetically Speaking, we strive to be honest and forthright at all times, staying away from false promises, so that you can receive the greatest original and fresh options to help you be the most beautiful you, inside and out.

Alana's mission is to make her clients look and feel beautiful on the outside, while leaving them feeling equally as beautiful on the inside, through improving the overall condition, presentation and well-being of your skin. Alana prides herself in being a “results oriented aesthetician” rather than a frilly aesthetician.
