ABOUT Ari - Your Esthetician from Rockville

My mom said, “You can get a recipe from anyone, but your own hand is the key”.


I grew up in Bali, Indonesia and moved to the United States to marry my beloved husband in 2004. Everything was new for me, including learning how to drive on the right side, navigating the streets & landmarks to stores, doctor’s offices, etc. (before GPS), and translating from my native Indonesian.


The biggest challenges were being away from my large family and transitioning from my successful office management career that I had cultivated since 1990. It was difficult for a formerly independent woman to became dependent on my husband. I lost my ability to independently provide financial support to those less fortunate, especially my preferred beneficiaries of orphans and orphanages.


When I moved here, my husband suggested that I start a career that I like and give myself time to adjust and learn about the U.S. I am very lucky to have a husband who has supported and helped me out from the beginning of my life here. I chose to become an Esthetician because I had the fortunate opportunity to learn about traditional beauty treatments from my mom, who owned a Javanese spa in Bali.


I have worked full-time as a Licensed Esthetician since 2005 and was with several spas in Maryland before opening my own studio in Rockville, MD in 2018. I adopted my mom’s traditional techniques and combined them with modern treatments into my own unique signature style. My customers express appreciation frequently for my unique services and individual attention to their specific needs. I get this from my mom, who teaches me that “You can get a recipe from anyone, but your own hand is the key”.


I offer full body waxing and customized facials for every skin condition and continually exceeds the MD State continuing education requirements to stay abreast of the newest trends in skin care.
