Laura Hirsh, Esthetician / Owner
Laura is a Licensed Esthetician, Certified Birth Doula and has an extensive background in Herbology, Aromatherapy, and Alchemy. While working toward her degrees in Business and Film Production, Laura worked in the Health Care field as an EMT as well as a Pharmacist’s assistant.
She began her career in healing and skin care in Northern California, where she originated a successful Aromatherapy product line which she distributed to such stores as Whole Foods Market and Mandalay Bay Las Vegas gift shops. After running the business for several years, and then relocating to Sierra Madre, she decided to take her knowledge of health and skin care to work helping people more directly. She first operated Skin Care and Body Work from a local salon beginning in 2001, and three years later, Laura launched her own business, Skin Care and Body Work Day Spa and Gift Boutique, in its current location.
Laura continues to educate herself on the latest techniques in skin care by attending classes through the American Institute of Esthetics. She has special certification in Microdermabrasion, chemical applications, massage techniques, environmental skin hazards and effective acne treatments. She specializes in customized skin care treatments and custom blended products from the Only YouRx product line.
Laura also contributes a significant amount of her time and resources to helping cancer patients understand and combat the effects of chemotherapy and cancer-fighting medications on their skin. Laura offers a wide range of treatments and services as unique and varied as each of her clientele’s skin care needs. She strives to make each client’s visit to Skin Care and Body Work Day Spa as relaxing and satisfying an experience as possible.
