The founder of Beyond Beauty Skin Care always knew she was interested in running a company. She helped her parents at their family business for 10 years before realizing there was still something missing, though. An aesthetic license, which she received in 2002, filled that gap. She could then work closely with people, helping them reach individual beauty goals. To help them towards those goals, she spent several years in a high-end spa learning techniques for combating the signs of age that occur naturally over the years. She can also bring to bear a combination of techniques, from alternative medicine to more traditional microdermabrasion, against acne, hyper pigmentation, and rosacea. Companies such as PCA, Skinceuticals, Obagi, Guinot, and others help equip her for this work.

Pellé Medical Skin Care features exclusively medical-grade skin products administered by skincare nurse specialists in a safe and comfortable environment. The center's micro peel blends alpha-hydroxy acids onto the delicate dermis, removing the dull and lifeless micro-thin top layer of skin to diminish brown spots, mitigate the appearance of fine lines, and unveil a vibrant and more radiant complexion. Otherwise known as the "lunchtime peel," the micro peel offers instantaneous results without any harsh redness, allowing you to reenter society without fear of making children or lifeguards burst into tears with one frightening glance.
Most nicknames are well earned, and Cincy Style Bar's is no exception.

Makeup lessons help the Style Bar's clients replicate their fetching looks at home.
