Wishing Melissa Bivelacque Skin Therapy by Melissa luck as one of our skilled finalists in the Compromised Category this week at The Skin Games
#skingames2019 #iecsc2019 #iecsc #estheticianconnection

I am a licensed, award winning esthetician offering Skin Care Experiences in a serene & sanitary environment for your total enjoyment. Join award winning licensed esthetician Melissa Bivelacque Mercado on a journey to amazing skin AND total relaxation.

So many times when I personally have had services performed, my initial response is, "I wish it was longer" or "That was great, but....". I decided to incorporate all my favorite parts of various treatments into one service. I hope you enjoy the customized skin care options along with the calming ambiance of my peaceful new space.

Love collaborating with such amazing skin care lines and devices!


So much fun with this group during my @haleandhush product introduction. This is their first week of esthetics school. Let’s wish them luck!


5lbs lighter without all that dead skin weighing her down.

Dermaplaning is the hottest exfoliation technique out there right now. While currently not allowed to be performed by estheticians in my state, I will be working hard to charge that. I’m absolutely in love with the technique and the results.

I was crazy about the results pairing the @dermaplanepro with my beloved @haleandhush favorites.

Who’s next? Oh sh*t, nevermind. Coming soon….


Today was virtual day with this lovely location.

We are excited to launch @esthedermusa Suncare ☀️ range at @thegrandbeautyspa located in Tampa, Florida. I was honored to virtually meet this team and set them up for success.

Shout out to Christina @bloombeautyskin for the amazing service today. I forgot how much I missed the Yon-Ka Aromatherapy. 🌿🌱

Her 90min facial with add on hand and foot treatments were just what I needed today. 🤩🤩 It was a great combo of the Yon-Ka Classic Facial with a modern twist! One of the top facials I have had for sure! 🥇

If you are in the Avon, CT area be sure to check her out. She is hard to get in with as she does book out far in advance.


💕Just a reminder to get your girls checked! 💕


We are out here in Jacksonville Florida. Have my favorite assistant by my side as I’m getting ready to be on the expert panel of judges at @theskingames.

Almost forgot to post!
is so important. Took a day trip last week with @jabouch and visited the notorious @thebodhispa in Newport RI.

We started with some spa services and then enjoyed the water journey. The water journey did not disappoint. Highly recommend if your in the New England area.

Waiting for you to schedule your appointment 🤍


It’s been a while so let me re-introduce myself.

I’m Melissa and I am a licensed and award-winning esthetician located in Wallingford Connecticut.

I am the owner of The Nail & Wax Room on Center Street and The Skin & Body Network on Main Street.

My specialties include skin care treatments and full body waxing.

My favorite body part to Wax would be the female Brazilian. It’s my favorite just because I’m damn good at it 🤍.

My ideal client for skin care services would be those looking to relax or those focusing on anti-aging. I’m also a sensitive skin specialist with Hale & Hush and Oncology certified thru Oncology Training International. I also enjoy performing teen facials because I love the education portion of showing teenagers how to better care for their skin.

I’m currently booking clients at @thenailandwaxroom on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Fridays I schedule skin care treatments only at The Skin & Body Network] . Both booking sites can be found in the link in my bio.

The other days you can find me training for one of the many companies I work for or at my own advanced training center helping other licensed beauty pros on specialty skincare or waxing techniques.

@haleandhush @rezenerate @bombshellwaxusa @dermastart @esthedermusa @thalgousa The Skin & Body Network]

I am one of the founding members of the Connecticut Coalition of Esthetics which fought for licensing regulations in Connecticut. Before 2020, Esthetician’s, Nail technicians and Lash technicians were not licensed. There was absolutely no requirements and no regulations for consumer safety. This is one of my proudest accomplishments ☑️

In 2018 and 2019 I was a finalist and award winner in the international Skin Games competition. In February 2022 I am honored to have been invited back to be an expert panelist and judge.

On my off days you can find me enjoying my time with my husband and kids @ludabarber

It’s nice to meet you and I hope to meet you soon!

Finished out this series this morning! 3 new certifications between yesterday and today.

It’s important to keep my workplace and clients safe. Domestic abuse, human trafficking and infection control are all real things that occur every minute of every day.

It’s important to me to be knowledgeable and know ways I can identify and hopefully help resolve these situations. As I look back at my career I can specifically remember some of these “red flags” and wish I had this knowledge earlier.


This was such a great class. Very eye opening. We all have that friend, client, student or family member that is in a less than ideal relationship.

Say something. Let them know you are there for them.

If you are in an abusive or controlling relationship. I’m here for you!


Did you know that each month I have a featured product on the Esthetician Connection website? This is an opportunity I have to share some of my favs with the esthetics community.

This months pick is the amazing @haleandhush professional only “Incredible Enzyme”.

Some of my additional monthly pics can be found on my IG story features.

It was so much fun participating in the @estheticianconnection Cyber Extravaganza the past 2 days. Don’t miss the last day of these AH MAZ ING education segments and specials from our partner brands.

Join me today at 4:00pm EST during our expert panel discussion on creating memberships and packages for your products and services.

Then again at 6:30pm for our final sign off where we will enjoy some quiet wind down time with a jade roller sesh using @wickedearthskincare.


It’s electrifying ⚡️

High Frequency- used as an external application that acts as a germicidal treatment for skincare. Seen here is the “sparking” method where the argon gases are used to create a spark between the electrode and the skin to oxygenate and heal acne lesions.

Schedule your customizable skin care treatment with one of our licensed esthetician’s today!

A little about ME 🤩

💫I became an esthetician without even knowing what an esthetician was. I had never had a facial in my life but I was a point in my life that I needed a career.

💫The Nail & Wax Room and The Skin & Body Network are my 5th & 6th businesses in the beauty industry.

💫 My 6YO daughter is my motivation. I want her to grow up and be inspired by her hard working momma like I admired my hard working momma business owner.

💫 I was born in 1974. Libra. Named after the Allman Brothers song. And yes, I require cheaters to read and wax now 🤣

💫 Brazilian waxing was never a service I wanted fo perform. Now it’s the service I perform most and I love it!

What else do you want to know about me?
