My Story

CarrieBenavides-skincare-esthetician3(Licensed Esthetician & Certified Laser Technician)

I became a licensed esthetician in 2008 after an uninspiring stint in the home building industry. I quickly realized that reading blue prints all day was not a big passion of mine, and that I talked way too much to be stuck in a small office all day. I took stock of my current situation and decided to follow something I had always loved: skin care. I went to the esteemed Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics in Houston and received my license and haven’t looked back since.

I’m passionate about this industry and try to always keep up to date on the newest trends, products, and services around. Something is always changing, evolving or being phased out in this business, so I pride myself of staying knowledgeable, and I love learning new techniques that I can bring to the table. As cliché as it sounds, I love helping people feel confident, and I believe a great skin health foundation is the key to a well-polished look.

Some of my favorite services are microneedling, skin tightening, IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments, HydraFacial’s, and good ole fashioned chemical peels. I don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to skin health, but I try to customize my approach based on my client’s needs.   

I’m so excited to start this blog, especially since I get asked a ton of questions at work. I figured that this was a great place to log the things that I’m most frequently asked about.  Please feel free to reach out to me if there is a question that you may have. I hope that you join me on this little adventure!
