Cortney Gwaltney {OWNER.ESTHETICIAN}

I have been in the medical field for over 15 years, specifically in the field of medical esthetics for 10 years, and owner of The Retreat since 2010. During that time, I have worked to perfect the skin spa experience as a whole, and to bring the very best in skin care to our area. Bridging the gap between the spa experience and clinical skin care has been the foundation with which I've worked from since day 1. This means from the initial consultation to customized programs and achieved results, I am committed to walking the journey with you over the years in a relaxing, comfortable environment. I am also committed to cutting edge services and a wide array of menu offerings to treat any of your skin care concerns. I have a true passion for facial esthetic enhancement and for helping you feel and look your best…I look forward to helping you achieve your best skin ever!
