Kathy’s love of skincare began when she was twelve, sitting in her dermatologist’s office.  “I was struggling with teenage acne and not feeling good about my skin. I remember feeling embarrassed and ashamed about the condition of my skin. I knew that when I grew up I was going to help guide people with care and compassion to have the best skin possible, empowering them through whatever was happening with their skin to ensure they never felt how vulnerable I felt.

“I am passionate about skin and strive to give each and every one of my clients the best advice on products and treatment options available to maintain the health and integrity of their skin.”

Jessie Powers, LA

Licensed Aesthetician

Jessie decided to take her passion for skin health to the professional level in 2013 when she enrolled at The Institute of Skin Science.  There, she developed a wide range of knowledge about whole health and how beauty really starts from the inside. Maintaining beautiful skin requires knowledge and the right products.

Jessie chose aesthetics as her career because of her enthusiasm for helping women feel good about themselves. Noticing how much women hide behind makeup, she made a commitment to continually educating herself and using her knowledge to help them improve their skin from within. This dedication to the industry leads to shared learning about how clients can care for their unique and beautiful skin, leading them to feel more secure with themselves.

As a licensed aesthetician, Jessie feels that educating her clients on their skin is one of the most important aspects of her career. Many ask “How can you know what to do, if you don’t understand what’s happening?” She understands how pigmentation, adult acne and premature aging not only put your skin health in jeopardy, but also your self esteem and confidence. Jessie believes that by providing her clients with the knowledge and tools to correct the situation, she can help each individual client reach their skin care goals.

Jessie is excited to be a member of the Skin Solutions from Plastic & Hand team and looks forward to providing exceptional services and experiences for all of her clients!
