Beautician is a word for people who deal in aesthetics. It’s about being pretty. It’s temporary. It’s less than skin deep. We believe in skin therapists. Educated professionals who keep your skin healthy for life. Who know the difference between quick fixes and real results. Even for their own skin.

Our mission at Skin on Market is to educate our guests on achieving healthy sexy skin while offering insanely great customer service. We call it skinformation.

Why did you want to become a skin care therapist?
Growing up I loved the “beauty” industry, but didn’t know it was possible to make it a career. I went to college and did the corporate career thing, but I struggled with my skin and started looking for answers. I become obsessed with spa services and products. I decided to become and esthetician and open my own vocational school. Before opening the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology, I worked at the Nob Hill Spa and trained with different skin care lines before committing to Dermalogica. The education with Dermalogica and the International Dermal Institute is unparalleled and the results speak for themselves.

What is your favorite part of a skin care treatment?
OOOOH! I love extractions. It is very rewarding to help show an acne-prone client the path to healthy skin.
