Today I am going to reintroduce you to our staff. Since she was our first employee we will start with our lead Aesthetician Carrie Bradshaw.
Who is Carrie Bradshaw?
Well isn’t that a loaded question!
No, not this one.
I can tell you she is more than just a fictional TV and movie character (Sex In The City). Our Carrie Bradshaw is a very passionate skincare specialist that has personally struggled with skincare issues for as long as she can remember. She tried it all, and I do mean all, from lemons on her face (it burns the bacteria. Yeah right) to Accutane (That was after her high school crush told her he would never take her to Prom because she looked like “I stuck my face in an ant bed”… Ouch!)
After years of facials, microderm treatments, chemical peels, & plastic surgeon visits her wonderful husband, Mr. Big, made a joke about learning this “stuff” on her own so she could save him some money. Well, let’s fast forward. I’m not sure about the saving money part, but the learning of this “stuff” has become part of her every day life. Now she has made the skincare industry her career and her mission is to help as many people that are willing to listen, about their skin.
In talking to Carrie for this article she said, “This giant leap of faith has paid off and being a licensed aesthetician has become better than any dream I could have dreamt. My heart is full and I hope that comes through with all of my services I provide for my clients.” Trust me when I say it does!
Carrie was the first person that we hired last year, 5 months before we opened. We knew the moment we spoke to her that we needed her on our team of professionals. She is a graduate of the Artistic Nail and Beauty Academy in Lakeland, Florida and has worked in several Polk County spas. She was craving the opportunity to expand her skill level into the medical side of aesthetics, (deeper peels, microneedling, etc) so it was a perfect match for both of us. She is currently working on some CEU’s so that she may expand her list of services to include more medical services.
Carrie maintains a Facebook page, Pretty in the City, Ask Carrie Bradshaw, where she helps her followers with their skincare needs. She is constantly researching, attending conferences and training with our vendors so she can stay at the top of her chosen field. Her zest to improve her craft and overall passion for skincare is contagious. Honest, easygoing, and incredibly skilled, she makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and informed.
Her list of services includes:
Norvell spray tanning.
Eyelash tinting and extensions
chemical peels including medium and deep medical grade
Carrie lives in Lakeland with her husband and 3 daughters.
See you next week!
