Professional Estheticians use the Fitzpatrick classification scale to determine the correct strength and type of CHEMICAL PEELS to be used.
The Fitzpatrick Scale or Fitzpatrick skin typing test according to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, is a numerical classification for the color of skin. It was developed in 1975 by Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, a Harvard dermatologist, as a way to classify the response of different types of skin to ultraviolet (UV) light. It remains a recognized tool for dermatologic research into the color of skin.
The Fitzpatrick Scale used by Dermatologists and Estheticians is:
• Type I (scores 0–6) Pale white; blond or red hair; blue eyes; freckles — Always burns, never tans
• Type II (scores 7–13) White; fair; blond or red hair; blue, green or hazel eyes — Usually burns, tans minimally
• Type III (scores 14–20) Cream white; fair with any hair or eye color; quite common — Sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
• Type IV (scores 21–27) Moderate brown; typical Mediterranean skin tone — Rarely burns, always tans well
• Type V (scores 28–34) Dark brown; Middle Eastern skin types — Very rarely burns, tans very easily
• Type VI (scores 35+) Deeply pigmented dark brown to black — Never burns, tans very easily

The waxing process was quick AND it did NOT hurt! I am so thrilled and love the results. Magdalen is funny and I will be coming back. Come check out this spot, super clean and lots of parking available.read more
She’s such a lovely lady. She welcomed me very nicely and also made me very comfortable, made me... laughed throughout the entire waxing process, which helped a lot to calm my nerves down. She does facials too but I’ve not had such services with her. Magdallen is a sweet lady and very experienced. Looking forward to my next service with her. Thanks, Magdallen!read more
No question, Magdalen knows her way around a chia pet! She’s fantastic! Best Brazilian wax I’ve... ever had. She doesn’t just wax, she details! The magnifying light she uses says it all! Thank you!read more
I went for my first Brazilian and it was an amazing experience! I was scared coming in as a... first-timer, but Magdalen was very nice and super quick. It was a comfortable experience and we chatted throughout the process, which definitely helped. I thought I’d be a huge baby, but it honestly was not bad pain wise! Overall, it was a very easy process and I’ll definitely be back!read more

I’ve always been so scared of getting waxed but she did an amazing job and I will definitely be coming back. I also got a peel for my acne scars and it went great too. Definitely worth the money and she’s such a sweetheart!read more
Went to Ms. Magdalene for a hydrafacial and it was amazing. Aside from being extremely personable,... she is also very knowledgeable. The first couple of minutes were used to assess my skin and decide what would be appropriate to do. She was very engaging through out the whole process, talked to me about each step and made sure I approved of her work! After, she made recommendations on skin care products and gave me instructions on how and when to use each one. Also, throughout the procedure, expect her to be the therapist and life coach you never had lol. It’s pricey but worth it. 10/10 recommend.read more
From my initial phone call with Ms.Magdalen to the end of my service she had me laughing. She has a... kindhearted, fun spirit and great personality all around. Very direct with her expectations (be punctual) and will answer your questions. She is the only one in her shop and uses paper strip vs hard wax. I questioned the paper strips but my results were amazing and so smooth. I received a full Brazilian and underarm wax, its been a week since my service and no hair growth or skin issues from her products. Also, the pain was minimal and tolerable, I was on my cycle so you will be more sensitive. The positions are different from my normal but her reasoning was true. I been getting waxed for about 8-9yrs and she was a 10/10! Highly recommend Ms.Magdalen to anyone who is in the Rockville, MD area!read more
