I received my professional training in France, where in 1983 I was awarded in Paris the highest diploma recognized by the French government in the field to this day: a Brevet de Technicien Supérieur (BTS) en Esthétique-Cosmétique. The curriculum involved a two-year study of the physiology and pathologies of the skin, as well as the physics and chemistry applied to the formulation of cosmetics.
After graduation, I taught cosmetology in a state-certified vocational school for four years in France before following my husband to California in 1987.
I am now devoting my educational background and extensive experience exclusively to helping my clients with their skin concerns and cosmetic choices. My focus is care, attention, quality, and efficiency, be it in the treatment of acne, the comfort of sensitive skins or the steps to delay aging.
I have much experience in face and body waxing as well, and I can’t say enough good things about the benefits of correctly-done body waxing.
My skin care clinic is located in the heart of Montclair Village in Oakland, CA, where I have been practicing in the profession for over 20 years in the same location. I am proud to still cater to many of my earlier clients, their friends, their daughters — or sons — as well as their daughters’ friends (of course!) and I welcome new clients equally warmly.
