Here we are! After many months of planning and preparation, I can finally share this exciting news with you! SKN Miami is undergoing one final brand evolution.
We are now Skn Elements. Allow me to indulge in a little nostalgia as I reminisce on the journey and bring you full circle to how we landed here.
I moved to Miami from the Florida panhandle with a set of really fabulous MAC makeup brushes, a license to practice skincare and a dream. At that time, I fully expected I was gonna cruise into town and start painting celebrity faces overnight, since I thought myself a big deal in Pensacola. HA. Give me a break…I was in my 20’s and figuring it out. After banging on a lot of doors I got a job in a busy spa on Lincoln Road doing primarily skincare. It was here that I perfected the art of a good facial massage and absorbed the science of skin analysis. I did thousands of facials there over the years and had the opportunity to work on people from all over the world, exposing me to different skin types, ethnicities and conditions which would prove incredibly valuable education. After working in South Beach for 6 years I decided I was ready to venture out on my own. I opened a tiny one man show in the back of a small hair salon in Edgewater where I got my feet wet and began to grow my clientele. I quickly outgrew the space and was very fortunate to develop an opportunity at Junior & Hatter in Wynwood which gave me a huge boost, launching my career and my business to the next level. We started with one treatment room, then went to 2, and after 4 incredible years there, I opened the first storefront in Miami’s emerging Little River District.
If you haven’t been in yet, I can’t wait to share it with you. For those of you who have, you know we’ve created something truly special. At 1600 square feet and encompassing 10 individual treatment areas, it is a medical spa like nothing you’ve ever experienced. It’s warm and inviting with the feel of a hip salon, but make no mistake, we do serious skincare here. You’ll get clinical results without ever feeling like you’re a number in a stark, white, doctor’s office. Our clinical team, supervised by world renowned, board certified facial plastic surgeon, Julio Gallo, is comprised of Estheticians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners who are dedicated to helping you achieve undetectable enhancements to your natural beauty and guiding you on your quest to maintain your skin at its best. Through our membership we become your partner in skin wellness.
Six months after opening we were met with an unforeseeable challenge as the world grappled with a global pandemic and we were forced to shut our doors. We have met this challenge with commitment to the safety of our team and our guests and with creativity to explore ways we could continue to engage with you through education, low touch and no touch services and with our innovative Digitally Supervised DIY At Home Peel. Keep your eye out for more breakthrough ideas and in-home solutions coming your way in the near future!
