"It is my pleasure to write a letter of reference for Ivy Halford. I first met Ivy three years ago, when we were introduced by a mutual patient who was thrilled with the results of Ivy’s treatments. I have since been impressed by the quality of care she provides to her skincare clients and the seriousness and thoughtfulness with which she treats the patients that I refer to her. As a cosmetic dermatologist, I feel confident referring my patients to Ivy because she has worked closely with physicians in the past, and is familiar with both over-the-counter as well as prescription-strength medications that patients may be taking. She is also familiar with the procedures that I perform in my office, and encourages her clients to schedule consultations with me to discuss treatments that may be beneficial to them. I respect Ivy’s judgment, as she recognizes when it is appropriate or necessary to refer her clients to a physician. She has also been a valuable resource by providing microdermabrasion, acne facials, and extractions to patients in between their visits to my office." –Jessica Wu, MD, Cosmetic & General Dermatology

"My dermatologist recommended Ivy and I’ve never been happier! I didn’t want anything toxic or invasive. I’ve noticed softer and brighter skin, sun spots fading, and lines disappearing. I love that she uses natural treatments that make my skin younger and healthier!"–Daphne Zuniga, Actress

"I recently had the most amazing skin care treatment which has left my skin glowing and even repaired some sun damage I had. I really can’t recommend Ivys treatment enough for anyone who wants beautiful, radiant skin. This is SO much more than a facial -treatment covers all skin with lights at end. This is what the celebrities use, but at a fraction of the cost." — The Best Skin Care Technology for Radiant Skin and Damage Repair

“I have known Ivy Halford for eight years and referred her many patients. She is one of the best aestheticians out there – from personality to ability. I was hoping she would remain nearby as all my patients love her, but sadly this is not the case. I would recommend (and do) my family and anyone seeking the best aesthetician services.”

“Ivy is nonpareil! As a paramedical esthetician in the star-studded city of Los Angeles, she is the BEST. Celebs and moms alike, sing her praises. But more than being an outstanding esthetician, she is an amazing woman whose warmth, humor and down-to-earth charm are unforgettable and undeniable. A trip to Ivy’s does wonders not only for my skin, but for my spirit as well. It’s like going home!” -Jenny Triggs/Los Angeles

“I am a practicing doctor in the Los Angeles area. I have known Ivy Halford professionally for the past twenty years. During this period, I have referred countless patients to her. Among these patients are many high profile members of the Hollywood industry. Such patients are extremely selective and well researched in the field of dermatology. Most of my patients knew more about skin care than I did. In every case, patients that I referred to Ivy returned to me stating that Ivy was the best esthetician that they had ever been exposed to. With that kind of response, I am confident that any person within her care will only be pleased with the results. In addition to being skilled, Ivy is a warm and compassionate individual. It has been a great pleasure to watch the positive impact she has had on my patients” –Dr. John E. Hertz, D.Z., Center for Spinal Diagnostics, Inc/Los Angeles.

“I have known Ivy Halford for almost thirty years and one thing that has always been true is that Ivy knows skin. She is back from Hollywood, after making the movie crowd look great, to take on our sun-baked faces here in Dallas. Ivy was one of the first estheticians in the country to perform microdermabrasion treatments and uses the finest surgical grade equipment.”

“I first met Ivy years ago in Los Angeles when I received a celebrity Oscar gift bag that had her products in it. A beauty editor at the time, I knew instantly there was something unique about her services. Yes, she knows product—but she also knows and loves people. Every visit is lke meeting up with an old girlfriend. I am so glad she comes back to LA on a regular basis so that she can treat my skin. After she works her magic, I glow.” –Karen Brailsford/Beauty Editor/Los Angeles

“Having been an A-List Celebrity assistant, it‘s important for me to have first-hand knowledge of the ‘best of the best’ in all things. I have known Ivy for over forty years and I am extremely confident when recommending her skin care services to anyone, especially those in the industry who are on camera. Ivy’s all-body treatment goes well beyond what other estheticians provide and she uses only the finest, doctor-grade equipment and natural product ingredients—-an absolute must in Hollywood. On a personal note, Ivy performed IPL Photorejuvenation and High Frequency treatments on my hand to help it heal from radical surgery. The results were amazing, fast producing, and it profoundly impressed my surgeon. Recovery time was sped up by 50% and rehabilitation greatly improved. Time is everything. In a nutshell, Ivy’s unique skincare service gives people a new and younger lease on life, which is what everyone wants . . . no matter who you are.” –Stacy Sledge, founding member of Association of Celebrity Personal Assistants/Los Angeles

“I now look forward to cleansing my face after a long hard day – and that takes an incredible line of products. Ivy’s Transformational Skincare is a totally positive and beautiful sensory experience. They feel great, smell great, and best of all, work great. I have never been this pleased with a skincare line!”
–Dr. Leslie C. Reisner

“Transform your skin—no kidding. For years, Ivy’s been called, ‘the best kept secret’ in Hollywood. She’s worked on the top Hollywood celebrities in the business. And now, I’m a believer. After all those afternoons baking in the sun eons ago, with my baby oil/iodine combination, I found myself paying big time with a zillion little wrinkles, sagging skin, and brown spots. So for a year, I went to an aesthetician every month for a photo facial treatment—lots of money and barely a difference. After ONE TREATMENT with Ivy Halford, it took five years off my face—I am not kidding. And now, two treatments later I am amazed! My skin has never looked better and all the quirky little squiggles, lines and wrinkles are almost gone! You are in and out in less than an hour, and when leave, you are not red and weird, and not all smooshing looking. No down time. You are there for one thing….and it works. Ivy is a breath of fresh air, too.” –Peggy W., Dallas

“Please tell me you are still selling your products—they’re the BEST! I am hoping to get two more bottles of your liquid Potion. I recently went out of town for a few days and forgot to pack it. I could immediately tell a difference when it happens!” –Lindsay Martin/Austin

“Ivy’s Transformational Cream is unlike other moisturizers—it is rich with nutrients that truly feed the skin. It makes my skin feel silky smooth and soft. It’s brilliant! I love that it is made of all natural and organic ingredients and the scent is so relaxing and therapeutic. Unlike most other creams, a little bit goes a long way….and you can’t beat the price! Ivy’s Sea Mineral Scrub & Mask is one of my favorite products. My skin glows after I use it. As soon as you apply it as a mask, you can feel the all-natural ingredients instantly working. As a scrub, it gently polishes away dead skin, leaving my face silky soft. I love that it is both a mask and a scrub in one product!” –Linda Kim-Suslow, Actress/Mother/Los Angeles

“Not only is Ivy the best esthetician in town, she’s a doll! She has taken care of me for years. She has all the newest equipment, including the diamond power peel wand. Your skin not only feels better and looks better immediately—you leave without having to wear any makeup and looking beautiful! She takes her job very seriously and is always on time. –Lindy Rosenburg/Pilates Instructor

“Having moved to Santa Monica after years of living and modeling in New York, and feeling secure and pleased with my professional team’s skin regimen, I was dubious about finding the equivalent here. I had surrendered to leaving my microdermabrasion person and facialists behind. Ivy is the angel that appeared as a reward for my surrender! I was seduced by her genuine warmth and caring; and after one visit to her office for a full treatment of microdermabrasion and light, I could not believe the glowing, bouncy, even-toned face that peered back at me. My skin had not looked this vibrant since my early twenties. Ivy recommended a series of three treatments of light (this is the tool that seems to be the real magic wand) and microdermabrasion. For me, this light tool lightened age spots and broken blood vessels. At the end of each treatment, Ivy slathers Transformation Cream all over—even arms and hands. Simply incredible. Our faces are what we show the world; this is like rebirth—and it feels wonderful, with no down time. After the initial three treatments, periodic ‘freshen ups’ are great, but at your leisure. Those first three sessions are skin and life changing!” –Francie DeMun, Model & Tapestry Artist/Los Angeles

“I’m so excited to have found Ivy’s special care! I just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror—I think you just took off ten years! Camilla and I now call you our ‘Skin Muse’…..think Sharon Stone in “The Muse”. Thank you. As always, you get me psyched to face the world again!” –Alice Nolan/Los Angeles

“I suffered from acne for years, and sadly it took a toll on my skin in the form of scarring and discoloration. Ivy has seriously given me beautiful, youthful skin. It took time and persistence, as I was a very serious case; but now I can even go out without makeup! Amazing!” –Rachael Simmons/Los Angeles

“I went to Ivy for a microdermabrasion today. She is unbelievable! My husband said I looked ten years younger. Ivy is amazing! She uses diamond dermabrasion, high frequency lights, and all kinds of other things that I had no idea about. All I know, is I am hooked! She really knows what she is doing. I recommend it HIGHLY! I have never had a better facial. It was so much more. Run, don’t walk!!” –Pam Krueger/Realtor/Dallas

“Ivy’s salon treatments and skin care products are truly superb; second to none! Over the past five years that I have been going to Ivy, she has completely transformed my stressed-out skin. Her all-natural skin care products are fabulous and they last forever. Her facial treatments, using top-of-the-line equipment will shock (not literally) and amaze you. Ivy’s passion for beauty seeps into everything she touches and you will walk away feeling like you’ve nurtured your mind, body and soul. There is nothing like it!” –Evanthia Roussos/Los Angeles

“When I go for my appointment with Ivy, I know that I am entering an oasis that will nuture my skin and my soul. I look younger than many of my friends, and I know in part, it is because of the care and nurturing Ivy puts into my treatment. She also teaches me how to better take care of my skin between times of seeing her. My skin loves her products. I spray the moisturizer all over my body after a shower and my skin loves it!” –Chloe Vezo/Los Angeles

“I am loving your products! The misting moisturizer is my favorite. It is so easy to apply after yoga class, when you can still be sweating a bit, even after a shower.

“It’s midnight on the day of my treatment with you. I’m SO excited with the results, that I just wanted to leave you a message. The treatment today was SO good for my face. There was SO much tightness and stiffness from my surgery, and now it is gone. My face feels so much better. It’s a miracle! I’m SO thankful you had room to see me today. I can’t wait to see you again next week for my next treatment.” –Lynda D.R./Los Angeles

“My first hint that Ivy did something unique from other estheticians, was the evidence of material removed from my outer layer of skin. The dead skin cells and exfoliation of acne scaring had collected in the microdermabrasion “wand”, looking like the remains of something accumulated in a vacuum cleaner bag. I was delighted to know the outer layer of skin—with all of its middle-aged wrinkling and discoloration—was no longer part of my epidermis. My husband, a physician, who had made it clear that botox injections and chemical peels were not an option (given the invasive nature of the treatment), agreed the microdermabrasion and light treatment (photorejuvenation) was a natural method to rejuvenate the skin. I wasn’t looking for a miracle. I was looking for a realistic alternative to eliminate scarring, greatly reduce wrinkles, and leave behind healthier-appearing skin. And, I’ve found it!” –Robyn Dolgin/Los Angeles

“I can’t believe how great my skin looks! You are amazing! After my 2nd treatment, my skin looks glowing, refreshed and so smooth. I just have to tell you I am putting on my sunscreen now as I’m about to walk at 6:15pm. I would never put on sunscreen this late, but the sun is still shining, so I want to protect my skin. Thanks for your rules on how to stay looking beautiful! –Ashley S./Yoga Instructor/Dallas

“About six months ago, by a glorious bit of luck, I learned about Ivy’s skin care line. Her products are so extraordinarily pure and effective. My skin is recovering clarity and glow that I thought might be gone forever. Look no further for skin care, because Ivy has captured the natural essence of cleansing, toning and moisturizing for the rest of us.” –Lisabeth Mims/Dallas

“I could no more live without Ivy’s microdermabrasion treatments than I could live without water. They are an absolute must to keeping my skin smooth, glowing and wrinkle free. In the past four years since I began my bi-monthly treatments, I swear my face hasn’t aged a day. It’s also one the few skin processes where you look wonderful, immediately afterwards. Friends always comment on how beautiful my skin looks hours after I’ve had microdermabrasion, and when I combine it with IPL photo-rejuvenation, the results are even better” -Janet Di Lauro – Magazine Editor/Los Angeles

This is a true testimony… I have known Ivy over six years… when we lived in the same town I was lucky enough to get amazing treatments from her but now I live elsewhere BUT I have never stopped using her basic skin care spray and balm. It’s amazing and so affordable. My boyfriend has recently battled Basel Cell Cancer on his face. One spot was too far gone so we had to have surgery. Since then he has to apply a chemo-type lotion which brings out potential hot-spots and kills it… a good thing but this last round was horrific. I encouraged him to use Ivy’s skin care in the healing process. He was skeptical but did so, this is not pretty but is a true affirmation about how amazing her product is. I never would have recommended it if it weren’t organic and natural! Stevies BeauI hope I don’t offend anyone but this is the honest to God truth… The first pic is when he first started using Ivy’s product and this is his face 3 days later… Thank you Ivy, your product is amazing! – Stevie/Palmer Lake
