What makes you beautiful?

In the words of Oscar Wilde, “ Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

Beauty for me is always original.

In college, I studied Theatre and Film and was always attracted to those images that made people amazing because of their uniqueness and not their perfection.

When I first started in the beauty industry I was more interested in giving my clients a sense of freedom from the negative relationships most women (and men) have with their looks. I wanted to liberate them from thinking they had to shave, wax, pluck and cover up to look good.  I wanted to have them cover less and discover more. 

I began doing Electrolysis in Miami and in a few years moved to Chelsea and enhanced my business by offering skin care focusing on acne and anti aging laser treatments. Recently I became Skin Laser Studios, a Medi-Spa inside the iconic London Terrace building on 23rd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. 

At Skin Laser Studios we take pride in providing gracious attention and ethical effective treatments.

Committed to the message that although we can always improve our appearance, it should always be a joyous celebration of our unique already perfect selves.
