Hello, spooky season! I can’t believe we’re already watching football and drinking pumpkin spice. We hope everyone had an amazing summer filled with cold drinks, fun trips, and lots of warm memories. We had an eventful one… that is for sure!
As most of you know, Lindsey brought a baby boy name Corbin into the world on July 1, 2022. Unfortunately, he had health issues from the very beginning so Lindsey has been dealing with constant appointments and a lot of stress. With persistence, tons of labs, and a wonderful NP at their Peds who listened to her concerns, she had a referral to a GI specialist. Corbin is currently being seen at Duke thanks to a friend pulling some strings—as they have the only Liver Transplant Program for children in the state. Fast forward through several appointments, lots of tears, Lindsey reaching out to doctors all across the United States, a HIDA scan, liver biopsy, and a Cholangiogram surgery—it has been found out that Corbin has two VERY rare liver diseases.
On August 23, 2022, Corbin was dually diagnosed with a Biliary Atresia and Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. Corbin was not a candidate for the Kasai, and he will be undergoing a liver transplant in the near future. At this time, Lindsey does not know when she will return to work so her books are not currently open. She will be doing pop-up hours posted on social media every Sunday. She is only doing select services so if you cannot find the service, either she does not offer it, or she is booked for that week. Make sure you all have added Smoothe on social media as we announce our openings every week on Sunday evenings for the week ahead.
On a brighter note, our aesthetician Julia is expecting her bundle of joy in early January 2023. Her books are currently open through mid-December, and then she will be doing pop of hours until she gives birth. If you see her at Smoothe make sure you say hello and congratulate her.
We also are thrilled to welcome Stephanie to the Smoothe team. She is currently undergoing hands-on training with both Lindsey and Erin. She is offering 20% off of select waxing services, and 30% off of a lash lift and treatments, facials, vajacials, brow henna, and tinting. You can book those discounted services through the end of October 2022. Starting November 1, 2022, she will have exclusive offers through the Daily Deals so you could meet her if you haven’t already.
A little update about our all-star Erin. Lindsey and Erin went to Charlotte, North Carolina in September 2022 for a dermaplane training course and we are excited to announce that we are now offering dermaplaning at Smoothe!
We are also running a 20% off special through the end of 2022! Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive, comfortable, superficial exfoliating treatment. A blade is used to exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin while also removing fine facial hair. Learn more in our latest blog!
We are also bringing microneedling to Smoothe. That service will be announced on social media shortly, and we will be looking for models for that service.
Erin‘s books are also open until the end of the year. Be advised, there have been some schedule changes so please be on the lookout for those. If you are looking for a specific service and do not see it listed online please try that service with one of our other service providers. Erin will be doing more in-depth clinical services going forward.
Lastly, we are hiring again if you know of anybody who you would like to join the Smooth team. They can apply here! As always thank you so much for choosing Smoothe! We look forward to seeing you soon.
