Studio Skin Deep owner and licensed medical aesthetician Kristine Ross felt like she could never find the right cosmetic or cosmeceutical product until, one day, she decided to develop her own line. With advice from a chemist and spotting by a retired mineshaft canary, Kristine crafted products to treat everything from acne and hyperpigmentation to fine lines and wrinkles. The skin therapists at Studio Skin Deep now wield her vitamin-rich serums as they perform mostly face-focused services, including facials, glycolic peels, and skin-tightening procedures. Small-scale eye treatments deflate puffiness, and conversely, lip treatments work to bring fullness to the mouth without slathering gums with fistfuls of peanut butter. Staffers also deforest nearly any area of the body with sterile dollops of wax.
