She has gained more knowledge and experience by attending additional skin care training courses and is certified in numerous advanced treatments such as dermaplaning, fractional lasers, ultrasound therapy, chemical peels and micro-needling.
The last 13 years of her career, she has continued to broaden her knowledge and experience by working very closely with esteemed Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologist in North and South Carolina. Nicole believes the esthetics industry offers an on-going learning experience, and a continued course for higher education and greater experience is key to being the best esthetician possible that allows her to produce the desired results for her clients. Her passion for skin care and being able to share that knowledge with her clients is what makes her job an enjoyable experience each day.
