Licensed Aesthetician | Wax Specialist | Makeup Artist
As a teenager, Carmen moved with her family to Germany. There she completed her three year apprenticeship in cosmetology and aesthetics at the Kirchensteiner Beruf Institute in Regensbury, Germany. After completing her training in Germany, Carmen moved back to the US to pursue her career as an aesthetician.
Carmen has been a part of the Spa Mizan team since its opening in 1998. She began as an aesthetics assistant before completing her in-house understudy training as a medical aesthetician with our in-house medical aesthetician, Ginger Louviere.
Carmen specializes in all Aveda Signature Facials, as well as Advanced Anti-aging Facials, Chemical Peels, Epidermal Leveling (Dermal Planning) and the FDA approved medical Myopulse Non-Surgical Facelift procedure. This procedure uses microcurrent electrical stimulation to strengthen and tone facial muscles and speeds up the healing process after medical facial procedures.
Carmen is dedicated to the restoration of the skin with an emphasis on non-surgical treatment options.
With her knowledge and understanding of the physiology of the skin, Carmen can help develop both an in-house clinical skin care treatment program that will improve the look and texture of your skin as well as an at home regimen to maintain your skin's health and beauty.
Carmen also specializes in Makeup artistry as well as lip and brow waxingprocedures.
Besides her training in advanced aesthetics, Carmen has also attended several business forums that focused on the business side of the salon and spa industry.
When asked why she chose a career in aesthetics, Carmen replied, “I was always interested in the beauty industry. After enrolling in cosmetology training for three years, I realized that I was really more passionate about skin care than I was about doing hair so my focus switched to professional skin care.”
When asked what she liked the most about her career as an aesthetician, Carmen said, “I love helping people with their skin. It’s very gratifying to know that I have helped them in some way, even if it’s just to come in and close their eyes and relax for an hour or more”.
When asked why she chose to work at Spa Mizan, Carmen said, “I saw the opportunity to grow with Ginger, our in-house medical aesthetician, and I took it. That was more than 24 years ago and the rest is history”.
In her free time, Carmen enjoys reading, playing tennis, working out and being outdoors with her son.
