OUR STORY

Welcome to Arawan Artistry Aesthetics, a charming and unique transformative aesthetic and wellness boutique. We are here to provide you with an extraordinary experience and deliver remarkable results that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and confident.

Led by Sunshine de la Cruz, a registered nurse with over 20 years of experience in critical care units, our team is committed to ensuring your safety and well-being. Sunshine's expertise in sterile techniques guarantees the highest hygiene standards, creating a pristine environment that surpasses your expectations.

Drawing inspiration from her work in the burn intensive care unit, Sunshine has developed an unparalleled understanding of altered and compromised skin conditions. In 2021, she embarked on a groundbreaking journey as a transformational restorative, clinical, and cosmetic micropigmentationist. 

Her mission is to share the joy of happy patient experiences and empower individuals to rediscover their beauty and confidence through personalized self-care solutions like permanent makeup (PMU).

At Arawan, we provide access to our signature micropigmentation and scar camouflaging, skin rejuvenation treatments, and hair restoration services. Our wellness and weight loss program is being developed at this time. 

We are proud to support breast cancer survivors, gender affirmation patients, individuals who have alopecia, those with trichotillomania, and individuals seeking lip repair (cleft lip). Your unique needs and concerns are our top priority and dedication to helping you regain your self-assurance.

Sunshine's exceptional skills have gained recognition from high-profile leaders across diverse industries. Nurses, doctors, pharmacists, therapists, lawyers, real estate brokers, interior designers, and teachers have entrusted her with their aesthetic needs. Her multi-certified expertise in micropigmentation ensures that each client receives a personalized and transformative experience tailored to their specific desires.

Her permanent makeup clients inspired Sunshine to evolve into a medical spa. Arawan Artistry Aesthetics, a medical spa, is the culmination of a dynamic partnership between Sunshine and her husband, Eric de la Cruz. 

As a former army surgeon, Eric brings knowledge and expertise to our practice. His trauma surgery experience and dedication to delivering outstanding results make him an invaluable team member.
