Today we’d like to introduce you to Ciara Deardeuff.
Hi Ciara, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I have been in business for close to 3 years. I started my business in my small hometown of 900 people, and have now expanded to sunset hills in St. Louis and Osage beach.
Prior to starting the self-love studio, I joined an MLM company by the name of Seint. I built amazing friendships with women and realized how much a compact of makeup could change the outlook of how they felt and saw themselves. Then I got inspired and dug deeper.
A woman’s number one challenge is how she sees herself and feels about her body. It can literally affect every area of her life. I wanted to provide a service that was able to tackle that issue at an affordable reachable grasp for every income stature. The only thing that was available was plastic surgery which came at a big cost with a log of risk.
I devoted a lot of time and research to finding something that would be able to change lives. After lots of digging is when I found the treatment by the name of ultrasonic Cavitation and Radiofrequency skin tightening.
I took a huge risk, went to training out of state, and brought it to Missouri. Fast forward to now, I have done hundreds of treatments, all with incredible life-changing results. Being able to give women hope and confidence is the most rewarding part of this career.
I have been a nurse for over 8 years and health and well-being have always been a passion of mine. Sharing and helping other women in their journey has given me purpose and truly changed my life.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s been a road of grit and determination.
This was a treatment that no one had heard of at the time, so it took a lot of education to the public along with trying to advertise and grow. I have two small boys and we recently got off a six-month quarantine due to my youngest being sick.
I would say being in and out of quarantine for his health issues has been the hardest challenge due to my business having to take a standstill. But I have been so blessed with the support and loyalty of my clients.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I am a solo small business operator. I have been in business for 3 years. I specialize in the following body treatments:
Face + Neck Skin Tightening – A treatment that builds collagen, reduces wrinkles and improves skin texture.
Ultrasonic Cavitation – A treatment that busts fat and tightens skin.
Booty Cupping – Tones and lifts the booty.
Self Love Sculpt – Builds muscle and busts fat.
Self-love Studio was the name I chose because my mission was to help women rediscover and love themselves. Not just finding their outer beauty but inner.
This business is very important to me and I strive to give every client the best experience, best results, and an ear to confide in and talk through the hard parts of life. I am with my clients for 2 hours every treatment.
I love learning about them and giving them a safe spot to vent.
What was your favorite childhood memory?
I was very active in all sports and my grandfather coached all of my elementary sports, those were the best memories.
