Advanced Skin Therapy is a medical spa specializing in all things anti-aging and all things that make clients feel better about themselves. We are woman-owned and a team of 10 spectacularly skilled providers. We encourage everyone to read each team members bio but in addition, I will lay out an overview of our philosophy, services and team members.
Philosophy: One thing that we are strong advocates of is the fact that if any of our clientele is unsatisfied with any service that they have had here, we ask that you simply bring it to our attention as we always want to and will make it right for you. That is our motto and the creed that we live by here. A saying that I often leave with a client that I have personally provided for is: “If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please bring it to our attention. We cannot help you, if we do not know about it”. We are absolutely grateful for the trust and confidence that our clients lend to us. What we know and understand without question is that: Without satisfied and happy clients, we wouldn’t be in business and wouldn’t gain the reviews and feedback that we are so honored to garner. Thank you all for your participation and trust in us!
Services: Whew! This is an area of substance and one where we believe all bases have been covered. Everyone has something that is concerning to them. Whatever that is, we have an option for you. While services can get overwhelming (we understand this), there are options for everyone excluding invasive surgical procedures. Every service we provide is considered non-invasive but that does not mean that some may not require some form of “down-time”. You will always know this ahead of time and it vary in degree of course.
Consultations: Every service that we offer comes with a free consultation so that you can be educated and decide which is best option(s) for you with the assistance of our team.
I am truly passionate about this industry and I believe that if any of us leave our clinic at the end of the day without a real sense of fulfillment, we just may be in the wrong industry. I see it as we get to give love and make men and women feel better about themselves each and every day. I just wonder if it gets better than that in life. Whether it’s giving of beauty and self-confidence as in our case or giving in other ways, I believe giving and receiving is what makes the world go around.
I love managing this wonderful team of women as they are all so skilled in their respective areas. From our Front Desk team to our Skin Care Team to our RN/ARNP team to our Coolsculpting and Cooltone team to our Lash team, everyone is just so skilled and ready to be here for our clientele six days per week. I am honored to work for and with this team and I know that you have come to the right place for your skin needs.
Additionally, while I have had to wind down from taking appointments, I still am your go-to for skin irregularities and I fill in from time to time when the skin care team needs coverage. So, if you don’t see me as often as you used to, please know that I am here and working hard for you and for this wonderful team.
Born and raised in the Eastern Sierra of California, I bring small town charm and big city experience to every interaction with our clients. While obtaining my associates degree from Ventura College, I managed high-end salons and spas in quaint beach locations as well as at The Four Seasons in Westlake Village. After moving to Washington, I saw the world of beauty and medicine come together and this is when I found my true career calling. I continued my education and completed my Master Aesthetician Licensing, graduating as class Valedictorian.
I came to Advanced Skin Therapy with 8 years’ experience in the beauty industry and started as a front desk coordinator. After completing school and becoming familiar with the front desk, I transitioned into treating patients with laser, skincare, and body sculpting. I now have 11 years total experience and yearn to gain more.
My most recent certification is in Oncology skincare. After seeing chemotherapy and radiation wreak havoc on my dad’s skin, I saw even more importance for advanced skincare education. How clients look and feel in their own skin throughout their lives, whether in appearance or wellness, is my passion. I hope this passion is apparent during your treatments with me/us.
Aloha! For starters, you may be wondering where my name comes from. I am Hawaiian, Native American and Swedish. I was born and raised in White Salmon, WA but recently moved to Tulalip, WA to be more involved with my Tribe.
My passion for the Skin Care Industry began when I started working at Wink Lash & Wax Bar in Hood River, OR as the Front Desk Coordinator. I absolutely loved it! Very quickly, I knew I wanted to be an Esthetician. In my 3 years at Wink, I spend 2 summers going to school to get me Esthetic License then my Advanced Esthetics License. I attended Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics Institute in Portland, OR. I can’t thank you school enough for their excellent training and Wink, for giving me the chance to spread my wings.
I’ve spent the last 2 years specializing in lash extensions all the while, loving spray tans, waxing and microneedling.
Now it’s time to fly! I am excited to get the opportunity to join the Skin Therapy team where I can utilize my skills using advanced modalities to help clients achieve their skin goals! As the newest member to the team, I am looking forward to Coolsculpting, Tattoo Removal and Laser Hair Removal.
Continuing education in this field is important to me whether it be learning new technologies and equipment or even my most recent certification, Client Well-Being and Safety: based on infection control, domestic abuse awareness and human trafficking awareness.
I have been with Advanced Skin Therapy since January 2021. Although I am the newest member of the team, I bring over 20 years of experience in the skincare industry. My training has included extensive laser treatments, product training, chemical peels, clinical training for a laser company and many other treatments for patients of all skin types.
I have a passion for educating clients on overall good skin health and improving patient confidence and self-esteem. I focus on patient satisfaction and love to create custom treatment plans for each individual. I love watching patient transformations from start to finish and building long lasting relationships.
When I am not with patients, I love being with my children, travel and gardening.
One of my favorite services to provide is IPL. I truly love watching the transformation of pigment with this particular service. I take pride in not just providing excellent services, but also in educating my clients.
I have always been interested in skin care and the medical field. In high school I took many medical classes, including sports medicine 1 and 2 and medical terminology. When I was 19, I enrolled in Cosmetology school, and quickly found that I enjoyed skin care more than hair. Upon completing my Cosmetology schooling, I went right back for my Aesthetics and Master Aesthetics license.
I have been a licensed esthetician for 4 yrs. Before entering school, I had a real passion for lash extensions, makeup application and skin care. To me my quality of work reflects exactly this. There is no better feeling than helping my clients reach their beauty goals and I strive to exceed their expectations.
Aside from lash extensions, I recently graduated the Instructor Training program at Evergreen Beauty School and also became a certified Cool Sculpting Technician. I am passionate about my career and look forward to working with you to meet all of your lash and body sculpting goals.
I am a lifetime resident of the Arlington area and graduate of Arlington High School. I went on to pursue a career in nursing, graduate of Skagit Valley College ADN RN, completed my Bachelors of Nursing Science at University of Washington, and finished with an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner degree from Gonzaga University.
In addition, I’ve had 16 years of nursing experience including Burns, Plastics and Pediatrics at Harborview as well as the Emergency Department at Skagit Valley Hospital.
I pride myself in having a great deal of experience that allows me to provide safe care for our clients and I thoroughly enjoy the happiness and confidence that cosmetic treatments provide. Learning the importance of self-image was easy for me after working in the burn unit because I developed a love for helping people feel great about themselves.
Cosmetic Injections are a beautiful extension for me and I look forward to working with Advanced Skin Therapy and their vast clientele.
Affectionately known as “Nurse Jean” to her patients, Jean Trost R.N., B.S.N. brings with her over 17 years of Aesthetic Nursing expertise to Advanced Skin Therapy of Smokey Point.
Born and raised in rural Minnesota, Jean received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing in 1982. In 1983, Jean relocated to Washington State where her nursing career thrived. In 1998, when Jean transitioned to aesthetic nursing, the field was truly in its infancy.
In the summer of 2002, when Botox Cosmetic was FDA approved and the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler came to market, Jean was noted as one of the very first R.N. injectors in the Seattle area and was named by Allergan as one of the top Botox Cosmetic injectors in Washington State in 2007.
Jean’s artistic eye for detail, along with her genuinely warm, gentle approach, consistently delivers optimal aesthetic results achieving a high degree of patient satisfaction and long-term patient loyalty.
Hi All. My name is Amber, and I’m one of the front desk girls. I’ve been working here at Advanced Skin Therapy for over a year now. Before that, I had been a client here for 2 years! I’m currently going to school to pursue a business degree and love working at the desk with all our wonderful clients. I have always been interested in the constantly changing aesthetics industry. Such a treat to be able to work with an awesome group of Aestheticians and Medical Staff!
I have been working in the medical field since 2012, in that time I worked as a medical receptionist, call center rep., NA-C, MA-C, phlebotomist, social services, and admissions for a Skilled Nursing facility.
I am passionate about expanding my medical knowledge and enjoy being a part of my hometown health and wellness! When I’m not working, I spend time with my many animals!
My passion for the beauty industry started at a very young age, when left to my own devices you would’ve most likely found me experimenting with my mother’s skincare and makeup products. This escalated once I became a teenager; I began using eye cream and retinol at the age of 13, convincing myself I would be able to stay “young forever”. After graduating highschool, I followed my excitement for this ever-changing industry to Sephora, where I worked my way up to become the youngest Senior Education Consultant in the company. While at Sephora I found myself naturally gravitating to the skincare department where I would spend countless hours reading over ingredients and personally testing every brand and product we carried. Within no time, I became the skincare guru at our location and could recommend the best and most effective product to any one of our diverse clientele.
After spending a number of years at Sephora, I decided to expand my knowledge by attending Evergreen Beauty College in Everett to receive my Master Aesthetician’s license, where I discovered a newfound passion for Laser Hair Removal, IPL and other advanced modalities. My favorite part of these treatments are the incredible and often life changing results I’m able to achieve with my clients.
Most people remember me for my positive attitude and bubbly personality. As the newest member of the Advanced Skin Therapy team, you may find me as a receptionist at the front desk or a Master Aesthetician in a treatment room depending on the day. Regardless of the service I provide, I strive to go above and beyond to create the best experience for all clients possible.
