Stephanie Kirkpatrick is a holistic skin care specialist. In 1978, her love affair with the natural health and preservation of the skin began. She had the privilege of working with and studying under those who most consider to be masters in the skin care industry, gleaning golden nuggets of age prevention each step of the way.
Her background began in Philadelphia as a sales rep for a skin care company and as an instructor with John Robert Powers finishing and modeling school. She also worked teaching smaller groups of people the benefits of caring for the skin both internally as well as externally, with techniques that would last them a lifetime. She carried this skill set to Illinois teaching at a John Casablancas Modeling School. As director of a modeling agency, she taught these same skills to models to keep their skin looking fabulous.
In the late 1980’s, she added commercial make-up artistry to her repertoire. By the time Stephanie became a licensed Aesthetician in the mid 1990’s, she had been teaching skincare techniques for nearly twenty years. She continued her education at some of the premier institutions on the east coast, the International Dermal Institute, Aveda’s Soho Institute, to name the most well known. Being in close proximity to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, she had the opportunity to study with many influential masters ,
like Dr. Howard Murad, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Pugliese, just to name a few .
In 2002, she and her husband Michael relocated to Texas. After visiting some of the most well know spas in Dallas, she realized it would be harder than she thought to find a spa that truly embraced the idea of addressing the aging process of the skin at its source, the dermis. Early 2003, she met a Plano plastic surgeon, Dr. Sam Lam who was building a wellness center. He was the first person to tell me about amazing spa owner and product developer, Myong Chong, founder of Hanna Isul. she apprenticed under Myong mid 2003 until late 2006, working as both aesthetician and educator. January 2007, Stephanie received her medical aesthetic certifications. February of 2007, she opened my own spa, focusing on teaching her clients to naturally care for the health of the skin inside and out. She is a regular contributor to Equinimity, a national magazine based in Dallas.
