Elaine Sterling

Elaine is originally from South Africa and holds the prestigious Swiss CIDESCO Diplomat and British ITEC certifications. A licensed Esthetician and Licensed Esthetician Instructor, Elaine has a passion for skin health and overall wellbeing.

Our Student Spa

The Elaine Sterling Institute is a licensed and accredited esthetician school in the state of Georgia. The spa services are performed by students under constant instructor supervision as required by georgia law. ESI prides itself on offering a safe, clean spa environment and experience at a fraction of the cost of upscale spa and salons. We cannot guarantee that the service will not be interrupted by instructors as we are required to monitor the service and correct students to ensure client safety. Please be mindful that this is an educational facility and therefore classes are being conducted whilst a service is being performed. Instructors may talk to the students during your service or need to move equipment for the students as students are not allowed to move equipment for themselves due to liability and safety reasons. We offer semi private treatment rooms for your enjoyment and strive to give you not only value for your money but also an experience you will never forget. The students and instructors appreciate your feedback and thank you for supporting our school.

Spa Etiquette

Tipping Policy

Post Care

Slight redness and/or sensitivity may be experienced after a microdermabrasion or chemical peel procedure. This is quite normal and should subside after a few hours or a few days. We recommend you use post care products suggested to you by your esthetician or skin care professional in order to achieve maximum benefits.

  • We suggest you only use products recommended by your esthetician for 48-72 hours post microdermabrasion or chemical peels as the skin can be hypersensitive.
  • Always use a chemical free sun block or low chemical sunscreen after your procedure as chemicals and preservatives can irritate the skin.
  • Home exfoliations: These can be resumed 72 hours after a mild chemical peel procedure but we suggest waiting 14 days
