How long have you been a licensed aesthetician, and what made you join the industry?
I moved all over the country and could not wait to settle down and get my license. Texas finally became my home state in 2009, and I received my aesthetic license in 2012. I had a job at a medical spa before I took my state board examination. I wanted to join the industry for years, andas a young teenager, I would play with the microdermabrasion machine at my mother’sspa in Florida. Fast forward years later, I had painful, cystic acne after having my second daughter, and it really took a toll on my mental health. It took me years of finding the perfect solution. It really pushed me to join the aesthetic world to help others.
What pushed you to open your own spa, and at what point in your career did you open it?
As mentioned earlier, my mother owns a spa in Florida. As a child, I recall thinking I would never own my own place. I despised doing laundry from helpingall those years. I saw the stressors and sacrifices of owning a business. Never say never because here I am now. I get to see all the rewards now. I wanted the opportunity of being a mother and having a flexible schedule. Family is the utmost important factor in my life. Having my own company allowed me to fulfill that dream.
What is your favorite treatment to receive?
Every skin care professional has their own strengths. I love just melting away on the treatment table and letting theaesthetician work their magic. I make sure to receive gentle chemical peels and microneedling throughout the year. I love to receive any and all treatments.
What product do you try to retail to every client?
A physical-based sun protection factor likeElta MD or Epionceis tinted. If I could give my younger self that chance, I probably would have avoided my own skin cancer. I had melanoma in 2014, and I strive to teach all my clients the importance of this product.
Bedside beauty essential?
I have a relatively simple regimen – triple cleanse, retinol, vitamin C serum, eye cream, and sun protection factor. The not-so-secret additional essentials I feature on my Instagram are my silk pillowcase and side-sleeper pillow, air purifier, and thehumidifier when the heater is on.
Favorite skin concern to treat?
I love treating every skin type. I really enjoy helping those that have struggled for years with overly sensitive or acneic skin.
