NCEA Certified Paramedical Aesthetician
“Most people think medical skin care is very expensive and that treatments have to be invasive and involve considerable downtime to see results. These are misconceptions.
“I believe healthy, beautiful skin is within everyone’s reach. I have designed hundreds of customized programs to fit a wide variety of budgets and lifestyles.”
Mimi experienced her first facial at age 12 — a gift from her grandmother whose gracious beliefs and meticulous care of her own skin provided the inspiration for Mimi’s eventual career. An alumnus of the Colorado College of Paramedical Esthetics, Mimi earned a medical aesthetics certification in 1998. Staying abreast of the latest in skin care technologies has always been a priority. Over the past 10 years she sought extensive post graduate training and educational certifications in chemical skin peels, Pulse Light Laser therapy, acne therapy, advanced microdermabrasion, and specific treatment protocols for pre- and post- operative skin care. Mimi worked for established plastic surgeons in Colorado and Nevada before moving to Texas in 2001 where she has since built a busy skin care practice at the Gunter Center.
Mimi believes skin rejuvenation is step one toward a more youthful image. She is usually the first person patients encounter when seeking age management and she has many tools at her disposal. Her areas of expertise include treatments for textural issues like fine lines and wrinkles, facial veins, hyperpigmentation, and complexion problems such as sun spots, melasma, acne, and rosacea. Training with the Pulse Light Source technology enables Mimi to rejuvenate not only the face, but the telltale signs of aging and sun damage on the neck, décolleté, and the hands.
“First, do no harm.
“Restoring the skin’s health to a more youthful state can be achieved without compromising the delicate top layer of skin that is often already damaged.”
Mimi enjoys doing things that demand careful attention to details and methodology and she derives a great deal of satisfaction in sharing the joy of beautiful skin with her patients.
“The simple, easy-to-use ‘balanced diet’ skin care regime I create for each client is continually adjusted to accommodate their changing skin’s needs and progressively changing lifestyle. I’m here to help anyone interested in improving their complexion and overall image.”
