About Melanie


Melanie has lived in the South Bay for over 14 years. She received her Professional Esthetics License in 2009. She started her business in a local Acupuncture office until she set up her own tranquil, private studio in beautiful Manhattan Beach, CA in 2011.

After battling adult acne for many years, she dedicated herself to discovering solutions and preventative treatments by educating herself about the skin’s physiology and researching treatments and products to help combat specific conditions. In addition to diagnosing and treating acne, her passion for skin has expanded to include effective anti-aging techniques, hyper-pigmentation treatment and prevention, massage, manual lymphatic drainage, meridian point balance, and stress-relief.

Her extended education includes Le Mieux Advanced Esthetics Courses (2009-current) and Advanced Peel Training (2013), International Dermal Institute Training – Dermalogica (2010), Dr. Murad Training (2009), Online Courses and Certifications, (not limited to) Vivant, Image Skincare, Le Mieux, Bion Research, Osmosis Skincare, Revitalash, Rhonda Allison, Hairaway, Eva’s Esthetics… as well as Professional Esthetics Trade Show courses (2009-current).

Melanie is committed to the highest standard of professional and customer service. Her compassionate and down-to-earth demeanor help make clients feel comfortable and never feel like they’re being “up sold” or taken advantage of. Her facial treatments are relaxing, functional and customized to every individual’s needs – with results that continue for weeks. She educates clients about their skin and the products they should be using, leaving them refreshed, informed and satisfied with their results.
