CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - With a snip of a silken ribbon, Destiny Renee Oliphant recently launched her second aesthetic studio.

Carmichael’s Five Points shopping center is home for Trophy Beauty, where bodies are de-toxed, skin is pampered and permanent makeup applied. For Bay Area transplant Oliphant, the venture follows the success of her five-year-old Elk Grove spa.

“My mom always took me to the beauty salon with her,” says the fashion designer-turned-cosmetologist.  “I could always tell her spirits were uplifted by her treatments; that’s how I came upon my philosophy. I believe true beauty comes from within, and cosmetics are the icing on the cake. But what is cake without icing?

“God gave us our bodies; we’re here to look after them with a well-rounded approach.  Most of our studio treatments are geared toward anti-aging. After all, none of us is getting any younger.”

 Oliphant’s wellness experience is supplied by a staff of seven. Techniques range from ombre-eyebrow makeup to dermaplaning, sauna sessions and “red light therapy” – a low-wavelength light treatment designed to reduce lines, scars and acne.

The beauty entrepreneur chose the Five-Points site for its privacy and luxury.  “Carmichael is beautiful,” says the owner. “I’m looking forward to making it even more lovely.”

Trophy Beauty is located at 5146 Arden Way. For more information, visit
