Skin Help Studio owner Micki Collett got into the spa industry the hard way. After getting into a serious motorcycle accident, she gradually recovered with the help of physical therapy, yoga, and massage. Inspired by how effectively the massage therapy reduced her scar tissue, she earned a massage license of her own, which she's used to treat professional athletes, heal injuries, and relax stressed-out clients.
Just as a firsthand experience with massage moved her to become a therapist, her own emerging skin concerns inspired her to become an aesthetician. In 2012 she opened Skin Help Studio, where she performs facials with natural, fragrance-free Rhonda Allison products. There she also kneads muscles with eight massage techniques and waxes away hair from the face, legs, and French and Brazilian bikini regions. Ever the traveler—she's lived in Houston and Costa Rica and studied massage in Salt Lake City—Micki attends annual Las Vegas conferences and local industry get-togethers, which help her stay current on advances in the skincare industry and in whatever industry is responsible for making cool booth stuff.
