Glow Skin Therapy

About Your Therapist

Opening Glow Skin Therapy has been Laura’s dream since she became a California State Licensed Esthetician (L.E.) in 2009.

She graduated from the San Rafael Beauty Academy, specializing in deep exfoliating treatments, enzyme peels, and full body waxing. (Yes, brazillian waxing too!)

After receiving her Esthetician License at State Board, Laura continued her education in skin care by taking classes at the International Dermal Institute in San Francisco.

Laura is currently a member of the National Coalition of Estheticians Association (NCEA).

Glow Skin Therapy offers skin care treatments using both a vegan and fruit based skin care line, used for all skin types, LED light therapy, waxing services (face and bikini), specializing in Brazilians, and brow tenting.

Laura’s experience has flourished throughout her career and she has gained experience working in both the salon and spa environment. She looks forward to helping you with your skin care needs.

Practice focus for Naturopathic Medicine:

– Gastro-intestinal conditions

– Preventative medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is a unique and distinct system of health care that emphasizes the use of prevention and natural therapeutics. The doctors who practice naturopathic medicine, called naturopathic doctors (NDs), are trained to serve as primary care general practitioners who are experts in the prevention, diagnosis, management, and treatment of both acute and chronic health conditions.
Naturopathic doctors are trained at accredited, four-year, post-graduate, residential naturopathic medical programs. The training consists of comprehensive study of the conventional medical sciences, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, clinical and physical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis, cardiology, gastroenterology, gynecology, etc, as well as detailed study of a wide variety of natural therapies.
Naturopathic doctors use a variety of natural and non-invasive therapies, including clinical nutrition, lifestyle counseling, vitamin/mineral therapy, botanical medicine, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, prolotherapy, micro-needling for aesthetics, hydrotherapy and more. Naturopathic treatments are effective in treating a wide variety of conditions without the need for additional intervention. However, pharmaceuticals may be used if necessary.
Naturopathic doctors are able to function within an integrated framework, and naturopathic therapies can be used to complement treatments used by conventionally trained medical doctors. The result is a patient-centered approach that strives to provide the most appropriate treatment for an individual’s needs.
In the United States, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, peer review, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.

Skin Deep

Skin Deep is a beautiful facility staffed by experts in the fields of spa skin care treatments and clinical skin care. We customize skin care treatments that enable our clients to have healthy and beautiful skin. Our treatment area has been designed for deep relaxation. Skin Deep helps our clients look and feel their absolute best.

Today’s skin care is a merging of cosmetics and medical chemistry. That’s why you need a licensed esthetician, one who can decode an ingredients list and figure out which products work best for your particular skin. Skin Deep blends the best of spa and relaxation with the most current and effective products.

We approach skin care holistically; we treat the skin, but look at the whole person – from diet and health to exercise – because skin care products can affect not only your appearance, but also your overall health. We are uniquely qualified to understand the interaction between skin care and health.

Our clients trust us to solve even the most complex skin care issues. They know that if we don’t have the answer, we can call on a battery of medical professionals – pharmacists, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons – to get them the best possible treatment recommendations.

Skin Deep is always on the leading edge of all new breakthroughs in skin care. We carry Obagi Medical, SkinCeuticals, our own private label line called Skin Deep, Clarisonic, Latisse, Neulash,  NeuBrow, and Regenica. Our focus is on acne, anti-aging, hyperpigmentation (discoloration), and rosacea (redness).

Our objective is to stay at the forefront of all new skin care breakthroughs. We are dedicated to bringing our clients the very latest in quality skin care, explaining what works for them and why.

Everyone deserves flawless skin.
