Sarahanne Thompson, LE & Oncology Esthetician

I’ve been a licensed Esthetician since 2005, and certified in Oncology Esthetics since 2014. The skincare industry has always been a passion of mine. I can remember as a child making facial masks from different things in the fridge such as yogurt, strawberries, and honey. My siblings and pets often became my clients! As I got older, I often would save my tips and extra money so I could go to the spa and get facials. That was my “happy place” and I soaked up every moment of each experience and treatment. I always walked away from those appointments with a craving for more and with a great appreciation of how wonderful it made me feel.

My life changed in 2003 when I was involved in a bad car crash. That life changing moment made me realize that life is short and that I wanted to go down a different career and life path. I left my job, went to beauty school and became a licensed Esthetician in 2005. I fell in love with working on clients, making them feel beautiful and providing a safe, encouraging environment for anyone to come to.

I was incredibly blessed in 2007 to purchase Facial Effects from my personal Esthetician and mentor! Facial Effects was one of the first organic spas in Vancouver, WA and I was honored to carry on that tradition.

I am passionate about providing high end organic treatments and waxing, all at affordable and honest prices. I wanted to have a place that created personalized skin care treatments for each individual person, using only the best organic products in a comfortable and inviting space. Facial Effects has now been open for over 15 years which I am so thankful for. In 2014, I became a Certified Oncology Esthetician as my passion to help those going through cancer treatments grew. I wanted to be able to provide those going through chemotherapy and radiation specific treatments that were approved by the Oncology Esthetics program.  I get to come to work each and every day doing something that I am passionate about and love- making people feel loved and beautiful!

I look forward to pampering you!

Being a licensed esthetician is a new journey for me. I recently graduated from the esthetics program at the Aveda institute. I am incredibly excited to learn and grow in the beauty and skin care industry. The main reason I became an esthetician, was because I genuinely love people and love making them feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin.

I am honored to be working along side Facial Effects skin care professional team because I value their commitment to providing quality skin care treatments. I look forward to further their outstanding reputation.  I hope to not only provide excellent service each time you visit, but more importantly that you find it a safe place to be yourself, relax, and feel pampered while you are here. I look forward to working with you!
