As a little girl, I spent hours going through my grandmother’s cosmetic drawers – putting on any cream I could find, and sitting in front of the mirror trying her brightest pink lipstick. When I became a teenager, I was the first one at cosmetic counter with my paycheck in hand, ready to spend it all on the newest, greatest thing for my skin. Always fascinated by the beautiful colors at the make-up counter, I loved everything about the aesthetic world.
I received my Aesthetic license in 1996, and my first job out of school was at a new spa in Carmel Valley. Within a month, I was made director of the spa. I lived in the guest house of a dermatologist at the time, and listening to her talk about new cutting edge procedures fascinated me. The more I learned, the more fascinated I became.
Soon thereafter, I was inspired to learn the medical aspects of skincare. I ran a laser center for two dermatologists, handling all consults for tumescent liposuction, CO2 laser,intense pulse light, sclerotherapy, Botox, collagen injections, product, microdermabrasion, and peels.
From there I was on a mission to open my own business, which I did in 2001. Since then, my practice has been defined by my focus on education.
Whether your issue is teenage acne, adult acne, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, or anti-aging; my job is to guide you through the maze of “miracle” skin products and treatments by educating you on the ingredients and practices that will work best for your skin type and condition. Rather than offer a menu of services, I tailor your treatment (and product recommendations) to what I know will work to bring your skin back to its healthiest state.
Thank you for allowing me to assist in your quest for perfectly healthy skin!
