Owner & Licensed Aesthetican

My name is Kristie Dorsett and I am the licensed aesthetician and owner behind Luxe Skin Bar! I opened my very first business, Luxe Skin Bar, in early March of 2021 at just the age of 21 and it has been such a journey since! I have been an aesthetician for about 2 1/2 years and I have loved every minute of it!
What I love most about my job is the relationships I have with my clients. If it weren't for them and their support, I wouldn't be where I am today.
During my teen years, I struggled with severe inflamed hormonal acne that first began on my forehead and then traveled its way down my face as I grew older. I struggled desperately for an answer on the internet for ways to clear my acne. Although my acne seemed to improve over the years, it didn't officially start clearing until I was in aesthetics school. I've always loved being able to help people - so as I grew older, It made sense that becoming an aesthetician and helping others with their skin is what was meant to be for me!
Making my clients feel more confident and comfortable in their skin again is the most rewarding part of my job.

"What made you want to become a solo aesthetician?"
Here's a little bit of the back story behind opening Luxe Skin Bar...
Even from a young age I had always known that I wanted to have my own business, but I figured I would just gain my aesthetician experience from a medspa first before going solo.
I was freshly graduated out of Aesthetics school in early March 2020 when the state shut down for Covid-19. This affected any chances I had of trying to score any job at a medspa. A lot of spas were struggling to stay in business, a lot of them were not hiring, and not to mention but all of them were shut down due to Covid. State board had also shut down at the time, meaning I wasn't able to take my testing to get my aesthetics license.
In August 2020, I decided to quit my retail job of 3 years and start focusing on possibly opening a business. In early December 2020, I was scheduled to take my aesthetics test to get my license. I passed and received my license, but still was not able to find a job because of covid-19 & having no actual aesthetician experience.
I knew the only way I could start doing what I love was by going solo.
I was scared, but I would tell myself and my parents "If other people can do it, then so can I."
So I did.
I applied for my LLC, started getting all my state and city licensing, purchased my supplies and backbar products. I had found a salon suite in February 2021 to open my business which was Glam Studios in Gilbert!
I opened my doors to the public on the beautiful day of March 4th, 2021.
I am now 1 year and 5 months into business and I can now proudly say my business is thriving and I am one of the top rated skin clinics in Gilbert, AZ. I have worked on hundreds of clients.
I work with clients virtually all over from New Mexico, California, Utah, New York, Texas, and Washington!
I have trained other estheticians on how to go solo and how to build their business/clientele!
