I have been a Medical Esthetician in the state of California for the last 25 years. I founded Upper Layers Skin Care back in 1998. It's located in the city of Hawthorne in Southern California. I specialize in corrective skin care and rejuvenating of the skin. My interest in skin care started by mere accident one hot summer day in September 1986. I was walking through a parking lot and not paying attention where I was going. At the same time, Mr. Mitchell, a well known skin care guru among the black community in those days, was leaving his office in Hollywood and placing some bags in his car, He did not notice me and accidentally hit me with his car door. That painful and unexpected experience led to a profound change in my life. We became friends and few months later he hired me as his janitor. Not a glamorous position but again, I was undocumented young immigrant eager to grab at any opportunity knocking, literally, not at my door but on my face!
Mr. Mitchell offered me the opportunity to be trained as a facialist in his establishment. I was under his umbrella of expertise for over 10 years. I learned and specialized in treating all common maladies that afflicts ethnic skin. Contrary to the old belief that lighter skin tones present more sensitivity issues, darker tones bring many unpleasant challenges when it comes to dealing with acne, melasma, scars, blemishes, dark spots, ingrown hairs, and age spots. Because its over-active melanin and aggressive collagen reactions, darker skin tones demands more knowledgeable, highly inventive, customized, and creative-laze treatments. I'm not shy to confirm that if you are looking for a person to treat your skin, I'm a connoisseur of good skin care products, well-informed, au fait, and in love with my profession.
