A miracle! – Now here I am nearly 60 and looking younger than ever! I see Sharon every month without fail. Sharon is a miracle worker and her products are magical. I urge anyone with any sort of problem skin to get in to see Sharon ASAP. Especially young people who are bombarded with all the dreadful acne products on the market - it will just worsen the problem, whether it's a form of acne or just the occasional breakout. Or heck, even those lucky folks who simply battling aging - she has a solution for everyone.
My original review:
I am 55 years old and have had acne since I was 19. You wouldn't believe the ravaged skin from the scars and the many, many harsh products I've used. I've seen many estheticians and spent so much money on the various products over the years. It has been just one month since I found Sharon and the results are spectacular. I have tossed all those dreadful products into the trash and spent a fraction of what I normally would in a month. I look 10 years younger and my face glows. Thank you, Sharon!
Every scientist agrees, that the best defense against aging is a strong healthy epidermis. That is the "magic" - restoring the natural strength of the surface of the skin. With this accomplished, it all falls into place. Thank you for all your lovely comments.
I shudder to think what my skin would be like if I hadn't found Sharon. My skin had been damaged, dehydrated, and irritated from several years of intensive so-called “acne-solving” treatments like micro-dermabrasion and chemical peels, which had turned my skin condition from minor teenage acne to a red, bumpy nightmare. I didn't have faith that I could find a way to heal my skin until I came to Sharon.
Sharon's unique approach to skin-care is simple and powerful. She focuses on healing and strengthening skin in a fundamental way. I use all of Sharon’s products, which have helped soften my skin and make it healthy again. I was very glad to see that Sharon's products are very mild without a lot of chemicals or harsh ingredients, which is essential for me with my sensitive skin. The thermophile cream in particular has been wonderful in cooling my skin down and relieving the red irritation that had plagued me.
Now, when I look into a mirror, I see myself in a totally different way. I don’t feel terrible anymore when I see my skin and I am not afraid to walk out of the door make-up-free. Since I've been coming to Sharon for facials, my skin has become incomparable to how it had been. It is now very soft and I have gotten my healthy coloring back. My once-huge pores have shrunk and my skin has become smooth. My acne has gone away and I know, since I am on the right path of skincare, my acne won’t return. Sharon has saved my skin, plain and simple.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. I am so appreciative. It has been my pleasure to help you restore your skin back to its proper place of health - and the exciting thing is that it will only continue to become more beautiful over time.
I found Sharon this past February, when I was looking for a healthier approach to treating a 15-year struggle with cystic acne, sensitivity and redness. Hallelujah! I've tried naturopathy, over-the-counter meds, antibiotics, finacea and retin-a, and I've been told repeatedly that there's no cure for cystic acne. On my first visit with Sharon she not only explained her commonsense approach to skincare, but showed me the scientific research she bases her techniques and skincare line on. Sharon was the first person to ever say that my skin could be healed back into beauty, and that there's no reason a person has to live with cystic acne...and she's right! Four months of using Sharon's (luxurious and generously packaged products) and five facials later, my skin is moisturized, much less inflamed, and my breakouts are smaller and heal faster. The best part? No more cysts. Sharon is a true gem: knowledgeable, skilled, kind as a can be, and great fun to talk to. I look forward to my monthly facials, and even to washing my face each day! Sharon's facials and products are worth every penny, and I highly recommend going to her even if you have to scrimp a little bit to do so (I do). If you have acne, go to Sharon. She will save your face.
My 17 year old daughter has been using Sharon's products since September with regular facials and her cystic acne is practically gone!!! For over 4 years she has seen estheticians, naturopaths, top dermatologists (where she had PDT using levulan costing over $1800), and visiting a med spa where she received pixel treatments also costing over $1800. In the beginning we used herbs, antibiotics, creams - tretonoin, retin-A and tazorac. She even tried accupuncture! The dermatologist was pushing accutane as if it were an innocuous medication at which time we adamantly refused to go there. NOTHING worked (in fact her acne worsened)until my daughter miraculously found Dzialo Skin care by searching the web. Sharon has created her own skin care product line over 26 years and they WORK. The products are not harsh and none contain exfoliants. So with this said after her facials there is practically no down time. I so wished Sharon's knowledge could be utilized in all medical schools. I even go for facials and my skin of 54 years is also glowing and my skin is looking more even
I have been faithfully using the "Dzialo System" for care of my face since 1994. When I first consulted with Sharon, my face had a mix of oily and dry patches. Any moisturizer I used felt uncomfortable on my skin and usually resulted in some form of breakout. I also had large pores and myriad blackheads on my nose. Over time, daily commitment to her skin care advice gradually caused my pores to shrink, and my blackheads completely disappeared. My complexion remains balanced and even. She has a simple and logical philosophy about skin maintenance that is truly unique and cutting edge. Many years of experience & meticulous research have resulted in her own high-quality line of products, which she created herself, and are gentle and refreshing on the face. The well-intentioned mega-giant cosmetics companies charge exorbitant prices for abrasive products that can ultimately perpetuate the problems they seek to solve. Sharon has the knowledge to re-educate the industry. I have heeded her advice for 17 years and I'm not kidding, people consistently & regularly guess my age at 10-15 years younger. Sharon, you are amazing and I wish you continued success...
Thank you, always, Sharon Dzialo – I came to Sharon in 1987. I was tired of eventually becoming sensitive to each product I would try. Seems my oily skin would tolerate each new substance for a time, and then revolt. Along with product changes, I also had been buffing my skin away - literally.
Thanks to my long history with Sharon and her devotion to educating me on how to care for my skin properly, I feel like my skin is still getting better and better.
Sharon's introduction of her own product line is the culmination of all her years of experience. Other manufacturers have tried, unsuccessfully, to glean her vast knowledge.
I am retired now and live in the southwest desert of Arizona. My friends and strangers, both ask me often what I use on my skin. I always refer them to Sharon's webpage. They never believe me when I tell them the first thing to do is to stop using hot water on your face and always, but ALWAYS, wear a a broad brimmed hat out in the sun.
The best compliment that I have received is from a friend's son, who was, at the time, a resident at the Cleveland Clinic. He went home and asked his mom if I had had Botox treatments. He said my skin was so smooth, he could not believe I had not had some medical treatments.
Thanks again, Sharon, for my worry-free skin.
Finally – I have gone to the moon and back trying to find solutions to my problematic skin and only until I met Sharon have I found something that works. It is an affordable and painless solution that doesn't put your health at risk like so many other acne solutions (aka antibiotics and accutane). If you feel like you have tried everything without avail, I recommend visiting Sharon. You will be amazed with the results!
clear skin! – I have only been seeing Sharon at Dzialo for 6 months and my skin is sooooo much better! I thought if i had acne I needed to dry my face out, but using the Dzialo products and following sharon's method of treating my face delicately, my skin looks so much healthier. I can go back to not wearing make-up! Yay! Go see Sharon!
My skin has FINALLY healed! – I had been struggling with adult acne for years. I had been to several dermatologists and they all gave me these horrible chemicals to put on my skin. The acne would clear up for a time, but then it would come back. I was very frustrated and thought I would just have to live with this. Then I met Sharon. She explained to me that my skin was very delicate and sensitive and I have to treat it as such. I started going for facials twice a week and following her advice. I was only being kind and gentle to my skin and using lots of moisturizing and soothing products. After seeing Sharon for about 8 months, my skin has finally healed! It is now soft and smooth to the touch. It looks healthy and has a wonderful color. My wrinkles have lessened. I still have a few small pimples, but my skin is better than it's ever been. My skin is so healthy, I'm now only seeing Sharon every 8 weeks. I know my skin is now going to age more slowly and I will be using her gentle philosophy forever. I shudder to think what my skin would look like in 5 years from now if I hadn't met Sharon.
Truly Helps Problem Skin! – I have been a follower of "The Dzialo Method" for over three years and can truly say that the condition of my skin has improved dramatically during that time – I even have photos of the process! Like so many others, I struggled for many years with breakout-prone skin. I’ve used topical creams, as-seen-on-tv skincare systems, and other methods – some of which worked for a bit, but left my skin exceedingly dry and unhealthy. I remember during one of my first appointments with Sharon, I burst out in tears – frustrated and self-conscious with how bad my skin was. Sharon hugged me and reassured me that it would get better with discipline and patience - and it has. I’ve faithfully gone to Sharon for monthly facials/extractions and have learned to treat my skin using a more gentle touch – just like she does for her clients.
I first discovered Sharon’s unique philosophy on skincare in 2007, through her sister’s salon in Sellwood - Andrea’s Facials. Andrea and Sharon follow the same ideas about how to help problem skin, and both provide equally wonderful, relaxing facials and skin treatments. Sharon is incredibly dedicated to her cause and works very hard at her business – she even recently created her own line of skincare products – Idyllic Skincare!
I am very grateful that I discovered Sharon at European Facials and truly look forward to my monthly facials, as they are both calming and healing. I think anyone - whether they are looking for assistance with problem skin or just seeking one and a half hours of relaxation with soothing music in a wonderfully tranquil setting – will find it at European Facials. I certainly have!
