Karin is an esthetician with over 13 years of combined experience in various different fields of skin care. From medical spas in Hawaii, to working as an esthetician in 5-star hotel-spa’s and wellness centers in Europe, to being owner of a day-spa in Oregon, which maintained a flawless, 5-star ranking on Yelp for all seven years of operation.
I went to beauty-school in Maui, Hawaii, and was very fortunate to have received my training from highly experienced and dedicated estheticians working in some of the top spas of the luxurious hotels Hawaii has to offer. I got phenomenal training in massage from my husband Alex, who has been a massage therapist for over 16 years. Being trained in IPL laser treatments, medical microdermabrasion and having had hands-on experience with very exclusive skin care lines from Hawaii, has made my career knowledge so much more versatile.
After me and my husband moved to Portland I was given the opportunity to own 2 wonderful microdermabrasion machines and HydraFacials, which are known as modern and top of the line serum based resurfacing systems. The training I did with HydraFacial was exceptional and impacted my skin care practices dramatically. I am also grateful that I was able to get certifications from some of the most popular skin care lines in Oregon.
In France I’ve recently gotten familiar with new, state of the art facial techniques and finally became certified in manicure and pedicure. The whole process of decorating, and creating a special, relaxing and loving atmosphere in such elegant hotel spas in Germany, was another experience that made me realize how much you can actually do to comfort your guests. I take the quality of my treatments, that I have developed for over a decade very seriously and truly believe that helping people look and feel beautiful, is such a rewarding profession.
After returning to Portland, I was certified to treat acne from a very successful company. Shortly after, we opened a spa studio for various body and skin treatments in an office complex across of Streets of Tanasbourne, Hillsboro.
I feel every day is a new day to study, learn and improve to serve our loyal clients to the best of our ability. – Karin Esthetician
