Among them, Kirsten Fahey, a skin care specialist and licensed esthetician, addresses clients' skin issues using skills she acquired while studying at the New Age Spa Institute. Her certifications in chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and body treatments further help her improve the look and health of epidermises.
