Julianne Bacialli, Owner / Licensed Esthetician

Julianne Bacialli is a Licensed Esthetician, certified in Advanced Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, Nutrition and a graduate from the Institute of Studio Makeup in Hollywood, California. She has been in the beauty and skin care industry for more than 25 years.

Moving to Gunnison five years ago with her husband and two sons offered the opportunity to relocate her skin care business from the Vail Valley. She loves sharing her knowledge of skin care, fulfilling the needs of the Gunnison Valley to offer services that  focus on acne and skin cancer prevention. Living and working here has been one of the more rewarding experiences of her life.

Combining her knowledge from the years of experience at the Park Hyatt Allegria Spa in Beaver Creek, Colorado, to working in a Medical Spa office with plastic surgeon, has allowed Julianne to offer a variety of modalities. At Aroma Essences, you are sure to enjoy a relaxing facial, including warm stone massage and aromatherapy, combined with the more result oriented medical skin services; microdermabrasion, peels, ultrasound and micro current. Hence her motto, “Medical skin care in a spa setting.” All facials are customized to your needs, which assures that everyone walks away happy.

Among these techniques, emphasis was placed among: Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy.
