Welcome to Faces SkinGym!
My passion for skin began as a teen, I struggled with breakouts that left me insecure about my appearance. Growing up in a small town and not having access to the latest treatment options left me to self-treat. It wasn’t until I moved to San Diego for school
and landed a job in the 2003 in the office of Dr. Steven R. Cohen, one of the most recognized global Plastic Surgeons in the world I was exposed to the BEST treatment options available. This was the beginning of what has become my deepest passion in life outside
I’ve worked alongside Dr. Cohen for almost 17 years, with the opportunity to publish papers in The Plastic Surgery Journal, launch Fraxel Laser here in the US, developing facial protocols in the medical industry for companies like Intraceutical inc., mentored
& consulted new esthetician’s in my field, worked as an ambassador for product lines like Vital Proteins Collagen Powder, Alastin Skincare, etc., and continued my education through various trainings on Apeele, Dermalinfusion, IS Clinical, Cosmelan, Rezenerate
Facial, Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial, and Celluma Light Therapies.
I created FACES SkinGym 13 years ago to empower women with education offering them the latest technology in skincare & the treatments available. At FACES SkinGym it is my goal to give you the confidence you strive for with glowing skin through a synergistic
approach and partnership. My treatment room should be a place you feel confident and empowered after leaving. I look forward to building a lifelong friendship with you & your face!
