Why is your primary skin care brand your ultimate go-to, and how has it helped you become one of the best professionals in the industry?
At Dream Body Studio, we offer a skin lighting kit – it is a cream called Perfecta, and over time, it can lighten skin a couple of shades. It also can take skin from normal and dull to a bright, glowing complexion. We also have a shower gel that works perfectly with the cream. It moisturizes, lightens, and refreshes skin.
Why did you choose the brand and how did you find out about them?
When I was younger before I went to aesthetician school, I always used a little skin lightener because I always loved my complexion; however, I have dark spots. I am brown in one area and dark in another, so I was always searching for something to even my skin out.
How do you stay educated with this brand?
Once I enrolled in school, I was learning and making my own products for myself and then my family. I loved the formula but I was not confident enough to sell it because it had to be perfect. I kept working at it, and six years later, I perfected it.
What benefits do your clients see from using the retail of the brand?
If you use the Perfecta cream and use it twice a day along with the kojic acid, it lightens skin. Many clients would like to lighten and even their skin complexion.
How do you promote yourself and the brand?
Instagram has helped greatly to promote my brand. I launched my business during the Instagram era, where people were starting to look up to influencers. So in 2015, I began working with influencers in order to push my brand.
Besides working with the brand, what else has helped you become one of the best?
I have become the best by offering a wide assortment of non-surgical treatments that both men and women can use. Aside from treatments and procedures, Dream Body Studio provides its clients with homecare-based products to further the work they received in-house. We want people to sculpt and perfect their bodies outside of the clinic or doctor’s office. Our products give results. One of the first influencers I partnered with still reaches out today for items.
What is your educational background, and how do you continue your education in the industry?
I went to Florida College of Natural Health in Miami to be an aesthetician, and I have a medical assistant degree. The lessons came so naturally; I was able to begin working once my studies ended. I got real-life industry experience early on.
How long have you been practicing and why did you choose this field?
I have been practicing for about seven years. I chose this field because I have always been into beauty and skin care, so these industries come naturally to me.
How do you give back to the industry or community?
I feed the homeless and often give out food, sandwiches, and water. I also hire within my community and pay staff well.
Why are these your top three must-haves?
The Perfecta and The African Black Soap work together. The African Black soap gets rid of acne, smooths skin, and prevents acne conditions. The Perfecta Skin Lightening Cream smooths skin for a lighter, youthful look. They work together through their ability to cleanser and then protect, all while creating glowing skin. The fat burner pills help clients maintain a healthy weight and curbs appetite.
