No one understands what problem skin can do to a person's self confidence better than aesthetician Michelle Kelly. The owner of La Piele Spa & Aesthetics Center was a longtime acne sufferer herself, and tried countless treatments and products to try to heal her skin. The experience, while frustrating, ultimately led her to her true calling in life. Determined to help others find solutions for their skin woes, she enlisted in aesthetics school and went on to earn certifications in laser treatments and chemical peels.
Today at La Piele, she takes a whole health approach to skincare, evaluating everything from a client's diet to their lifestyle habits in order to help treat dermal concerns such as acne and clogged pores. Besides basic facials and microdermabrasion treatments, she might recommend retinol peels, which use vitamin A to help rebuild skin from the inside out, or LED phototherapy, which uses intense pulses of light to diminish signs of aging such as fine lines, age spots, and loss of firmness. In addition to advanced skincare treatments, La Piele also offers beauty-boosting services such as spray tanning and special occasion makeup for events such as weddings, proms, and glamorous nights in.
