I went to Chris for the first time yesterday and I’ve already signed up for the membership! She is so attentive and knowledgeable, yet not judgmental at all. I’ve had facials where the person would make me feel guilty for not taking care of my skin correctly and Chris instead let me know what I should be doing/changing to my routine. Her studio is so beautiful and inviting, I wanted to stay there all day! I did buy a cleanser that she suggested (I used it for the first time this morning and I’m loving it!), but she did not pressure me at all to buy the products and informed me of their purposes and how they would help. I cannot wait to go back to her next month and continue to improve the condition of my skin!
Huge thanks to Chris for being so kind to her patients and making such a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend this place.
Soooo much more than “just a facial”….so relaxing, calming and professional. Plus, the facial was amazing. No pressure to purchase products – which I did, because of THAT, and the reasonable prices. I will definitely be back!

A relaxing a rejuvenating time, as always. The only place I get a facial because I can trust the products and the professionalism.

I recently purchased a Groupon for a signature facial with Chris. As this was my very first facial, I had no idea what to expect but the experience and results were amazing! My skin has never looked better! It’s so clear, soft and it’s literally been glowing ever since! I will definitely be a regular customer! Thanks so much Chris!

I am happy to have found Christine! I love her spa, her touch is amazing and her product line follows right in line with her care and detail she obviously puts into her business to provide the best quality to her clientele. I felt at home in her care and that I was in good hands! I feel like I found a hidden treasure in the heart of Fair Oaks :), so nice! Don’t tell to many people as I fear, soon I will have to book months in advance – 😉

I had purchased a Groupon for the signature facial and since this was very first facial, I didn’t know what to expect. I love the convenience of being able to schedule your appointments online. The place is very warm and inviting and Chris just makes you feel at ease, she’s very friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed every minute of my first facial and was disappointed that the hour went by so fast. She gave a wonderful massage along with the facial and everything was very relaxing. I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner. My skin looks and feels alot smoother. I can’t wait for my next one. Thanks Chris!

I bought a Groupon for a facial and microdermabrasion and experience was amazing! Chris was phenomenal, I’m a pretty tense and busy girl so anytime for relaxation is appreciated but sometimes hard to do! This facial definitely did not feel like I got a great deal on it.. I’ve had Groupon deals that were rushed and obviously made to cut costs so you get what you pay for. This was completely different, Chris took her time and I nearly fell a sleep! The entire appointment was so spiritual and relaxing. I have fairly sensitive skin and got a little red after the microdermabrasion (not anymore the usual) but Chris made a point of it to text me the following day to check on my skin. She was even sent a thank you note. I couldn’t be more pleased with the kindness, attention to detail, and care that Chris took. I’ll definitely be back and happy to pay full price for her services!!

Chris was very professional, holistic, and genuinely kind. She knows her job and my facial was very relaxing. Finally have a place to get GREAT facials!

After reading all the great reviews, I decided to get a facial here. I just moved so I’ve been looking for a new aesthetician as I try to get facials every season. My facial was lovely and I really enjoyed meeting Chris. I have already recommended her to a friend and will definitely be returning!
I got a facial from Christine last month and absolutely loved every minute of it! Not only is she super friendly, warm, and knowledgeable, but my skin has felt so much smoother ever since (I purchased a couple products as well). I also got a follow up call and Christmas card! She is such a gem! I’m even referring my mom. 🙂 Too bad I live in the Bay Area, or I’d be a regular.

I have been going to Advanced Skin Solutions for about 5 years now. The previous owner Heather was wonderful and she sold her business to Chris who is every bit as knowledgeable. My skin has never looked better and I will continue to care for my skin by going to Chris. When I come in for an appointment she knows exactly what my skins needs. She is fantastic!
CM, Fair Oaks, CA
Chris is INCREDIBLE! She is very skilled at doing Brazilian waxes & makes you feel very comfortable. I also recently went to her for a facial (I hadn’t had one for over a year due to issues after my last one) and she was able to do the extractions without breaking my skin. She brought a healthy glow back to my face and the whole experience was very zen full. Highly recommend Chris for your skin care & waxing needs!!!

If you’re looking for results while getting pampered, you’ve found the right person! Chris gave me a clinical facial yesterday and I found her approach very calming and spa like. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants good skin and a great experience!
CM, Sacramento, CA
Chris is incred. It was my first time and I got the Brazilian. Made me feel comfortable immediately. Was very patient and gentle. Completely worth it. Already booked my next appointment and thinking about trying a facial in the next couple of weeks Chris is da bomb!

OMG, there are no words to express how wonderful my facial was at the hands of this Master! I was so relaxed as to be in a Zen-like state when I left and the blissful feeling lasted for hours. This is from a facial mind you. The entire experience is Best in Class! The facility is beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable. Calming music played in the background and the lighting was nearly surreal. So lovely! The facial was soothing and yet my skin felt invigorated and amazing to the touch. Chris includes a neck and shoulder massage that had me so relaxed, I couldn’t speak (which is astounding for those who know me!). As the mask dried, Chris even provided a meditation process, which I loved. When all was complete, Chris used essential lavender oil to bring me up. I would recommend Chris to any and everyone who is considering getting a facial. I will be going back again, and again, and again. Yes, the entire experience was a feast for my skin.

First time getting a facial and it was amazing. From the moment I walked in, I felt comfortable. Loved how Chris went over the procedures and was patient with me while I asked a ton of questions. She even recommended some wonderful products to help me at home. I wish I could get a facial everyday, my skin was better than I had ever seen it!!! I’m definitely going back!This is was my first facial/ Micro dermabrasion I had ever received. I found Chris/Advanced Skin Solutions on Groupon. After doing quite a bit of research on different on aestheticians, their product and services I decided to go with Chris and could not have been more pleased.
When I first contacted Chris she was knowledgeable, patient with all of my questions and accommodating. She got me squeezed in on short notice.
The office is decorated very chic like. Her room is a spacious with a candle lit glow and soft music in the background- put you right at ease.
She got some information for me and went straight in to my Microderm and facial, which was extremely relaxing.
I loved it so much I purchased one for my boyfriend. He went if you days after me and was amazed be her skill.
Chris with advanced skin solutions was so patient knowledgeable, kind and did incredible work that she’s made this experience over-the-top for me not to mention my skin looks radiant. And she wasn’t pushy with trying to sell skincare product, either, which was nice.
I can’t wait to go back for my next facial/ “my me time”
DF, N. Highlands, CA
Chris, your facial is more-than-a-facial as far as I’m concerned. Not only does my skin look great my whole body feels renewed. Thanks for your loving touch.
PL, Rescue, CA
Chris stands out from the many facials I have received over the years because of her unique approach to “treating the WHOLE person”, rather than just providing facial services. She is an extraordinary spiritual counselor, an inspiring health coach, and a very talented aesthetician, which resulted in a super relaxing, emotionally supported and spiritually inspiring experience on her table. PLUS, I was incredibly relaxed. Can’t wait for my next one!
JL, Folsom, CA
Amazing!!! This was my first time and it was the best experience. So professional friendly and beautiful place. Very knowledgeable and uses superior products. I referred her to all of my family as soon as I left the door. At the beginning I told her I was having a bad day and when I was there for an hour I forgot I had kids and a husband (just for the time being) I zoned out and relaxed my brain. Well worth the time. Thanks Chris.
SE, Sacramento, CA
Chris was absolutely awesome! She listened to my issues and did exactly as I had requested. She is professional and caring and I was very happy with her work. She creates a very comfortable atmosphere and you feel like you have know her forever! I highly recommend Chris-she will take good care of you!

I’m not the type of person that uses salon services, but when I developed some unsightly brown spots on my face I began to search for ways to remove or lighten these spots. Finding an esthetician I could trust was hard, especially since I didn’t have the luxury of a personal referral. And that’s why I’m writing my very first review! I want Sacramento to know about Advanced Skin Solutions, my results – and especially about Chris Wagner.
I’m over 60, fair skinned and worked outside most of my adult life. My skin was dry, deeply wrinkled and I had brown spots on my cheeks, forehead and above my upper lip. The treatment I received (microdermabrasion & chemical peels) greatly reduced the color of the brown spots to the point where I don’t even notice them anymore! Besides dramatic changes to the brown spots I’m also extremely pleased with the overall improvement of my skin. It’s smoother, the wrinkles are not as deep set and my skin is more supple. The results out-weighted my expectations!
Ms. Wagner’s business style matches her personality. She is open, honest and definitely knows her trade. She’s knowledgeable and forward thinking, understands her products inside and out, and to top all of that off, she has a wonderful positive upbeat personality that I was immediately drawn to. Her business is clean and comfortable; the best way to describe her office – just slip off your shoes and you’re instantly comfortable!

Chris is amazing. I’ve had facials before but Chris is truly gifted at facial massage. I left with my brain feeling lighter than it had in a long time. Chris is well versed in skin care as well. I have extra sensitive skin that reacts to many ingredients, but her skin care lines and the products she uses are so gentle yet effective that they have never caused any reaction on my skin. Her offi…ce is so relaxing, appropriately appointed and feels so luxurious – I believe I fell asleep twice during my last facial. The heated table, warm mitts, relaxing hand and foot massage were incredible. I joined her monthly membership with no hesitation because I love how my skin looks, Chris truly gives me a pampering experience each time I’m there, and I love her products so much that the discount that comes with the membership is real perk. I would recommend Chris to anyone – male or female – that needs some relaxation, a fantastic facial experience, or anyone with skin issues like sun damage, wrinkles, acne or anyone going through treatment for cancer. She’s got the education AND giftedness to properly treat any issue and make anyone coming to her office feel truly valued.
AS, Sacramento, CA
Skin heaven! I truly glowed after enjoying a relaxing afternoon pampering my skin and soaking up the great vibration of this soulful place. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about skin and products but I walked out with new information and truly transformative products that are less expensive than some of the more commercial skin product lines. Chris is wonderfully gifted and I will definitely be returning often for all of my skin and waxing needs. I love hearing people ask me what I’ve done to look so much younger.
MM, Folsom, CA
Fabulous first facial! Yes, it was my first time and WOW, did I hit the jackpot. Advanced Skin Solutions provides a deeply relaxing space to unplug and receive genuine pampering. It feels so good to find a place where the provider loves her craft, helping others, and uses the best products on the market. I felt that intention with my session which included: brow shaping/wax, microderm, soothing massage, and an educational consultation. Professional and knowledgeable, Chris took great care to tailor a skin care plan that was doable for my budget, lifestyle and daily implementation. My skin looks and feels better than ever–I am very thankful I gave it a try!
AO, Cameron Park, CA
What can I say!? Chris is fabulous! She really cares about the health of the skin! I love her place – open and spacious and very comfortable. Her skin care line is amazing and my skin felt and looked 100 times better and brighter as I left. Thank you so much, Chris! See you again soon for my next micro!
J GM, Fair Oaks, CA
I’m new to the area and so grateful to have found Chris. She gave me possibly the best facial I have ever had. I’m using her products and continue to see improvement in my not-so-young skin. Thank you Chris.
PL, Rescue, CA
Chris was fantastic! I got my first Brazilian with her and a follow up visit too. She was very professional and made me feel super comfortable throughout the entire process. I also got a signature facial with microdermabrasion…I’ve gotten a couple facials in the past and this one was an A++, best I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Chris and Advanced Skin Solutions
ZZ, Sacramento, CA
Looking for a place to get away for just under an hour and feel amazing inside & out when you leave? Chris at Advanced Skin Solutions is the answer! Her office is nestled in a side street away from the busy-ness of the hustle and bustle of Fair Oaks and Sunrise. This open oasis sits away from all the “noise” and welcomes you with clean refreshing smells of relaxation. Her treatments are amazing, she’s knowledgeable about the skin and her amazing products. I love the way I feel AND my skin feels when she’s finished. She is super attentive, and loves what she does, which shows in everything which makes the whole experience pleasurable! Thank you Chris! I look forward to the next visit!
