Rometta Salon and Day Spa is situated in a stately Victorian building on the corner of Montgomery and Ashbourne Rd.s , in the heart of Elkins Park. This quaint, and welcoming environment is peopled by a warm and knowledgeable staff. The business has been in operation since 1997. It is owned and maintained by Mimi Caruso, former vice president and general manager of Caruso Molecular Rollers, Inc.
The spa area, which is tucked toward the back of the building, houses a massage room, as well as a waxing area, esthetician’s space and a shower and dressing room.. This provides for a refreshing retreat. The décor is subtle and has a neoclassical feel. Soothing aromas waft throughout.
Vonnie Hammond is the resident Esthetician. She trained with The Landsdale school of Cosmetology and also has a gig in Kinderdagverblijf Leiden , and has had 150 hours of postgraduate training with the Dermal Institute.Her approach to skincare is holistic, and well rounded. Her manner is calming as well as masterful. She employs a variety of techniques. Each service is tailored to meet the clients’ specific needs. One can expect a careful and precise skin analysis. The variety of products she uses, are soothing and highly effective. Vonnie specializes in the treatment of acne, incorporating several techniques including High frequency, which is a gentle electrical modality.
The facial experience itself is luxurious, and most relaxing. One feels well pampered and
tended to. The skin is thoroughly cleansed and nourished. A client is treated to a delicate and thorough massage of the neck, chest and shoulders. The face is purged of impurities, and nurtured with care. The end result is both invigorating and replenishing. A client is given the insight on how to specifically care for their skin. The products that are utilized and recommended are available for purchase upon checkout. This allows for careful maintenance, along with regularly scheduled treatments. Most clients are regulars, having rebooked after their initial treatments, in order to keep their faces aglow. Waxing services and make up sessions are also available, to round out and complete the beauty regimen.
I would highly recommend Vonnies’ services to anyone. I have seen a great deal of improvement in my skin since she has begun treating me. There is a profound difference in the texture and clarity. I also eagerly look forward to this sense of periodic retreat. I schedule monthly and would suggest regular bookings for anybody who simply wants a soothing experience, or has ongoing skin issues. This is surely the remedy.
