Lisa Licensed Master Paramedical Aesthetician
Lisa brings an unmatched passion for skincare and anti aging treatments to KMP Aesthetics. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from New York University, Lisa worked for many years in the computer industry as a technical engineer and a motion graphic artist. Always having a passion for skincare, from years of struggling with acne, Lisa decided to follow her heart and pursue a career in aesthetics. When she moved to Seattle from Los Angeles in 2002, Lisa enrolled with the Euro Institute, one of the nation’s premiere esthetics colleges, which specializes in skincare.
Lisa’s strong technical skill and analytical nature make her a huge asset to KMP Aesthetics, as she is often able to determine the causes of a patient’s acne or skin condition. She was a big proponent and participant in the development of our private label of medical-grade skincare, and even designed the labels! Lisa is always researching the industry’s latest products and trends to keep our line cutting edge.
While Lisa worked briefly in the spa world, lasers and medical facial treatments are what she truly loves to perform. Lisa has over 13 years of Laser experience and is our Sciton Halo and BBL® HERO™ expert. She also has a huge following for her skin tightening treatments such as the Sciton Skin Tyte. Her personal history with acne gives Lisa extra motivation to clear up her patient’s skin. Her patients love her deep cleaning Micropeels and Hydrafacials both for anti-aging and for acne. Lisa is vivacious, passionate and brings a scientific edge to the KMP Aesthetics family. Lisa and her husband have two daughters and furry son named Peso. She enjoys running, yoga, and doing home projects when she isn’t fixing faces.
