As a former ICU nurse, Kim Marinetto knows that assessment is key in knowing what treatment should follow. One approach does not work for all.“ It’s a team effort. The client needs to know what’s possible and attainable. My job is to help them set realistic expectations.” She should know. With a master aesthetician degree under her belt and over 20 years of experience in the medical industry, she stresses education as being the number one impact she can make when working with her clients. From advising them on which filler would make the most impact to which vitamin they may need to stop using prior to a botox injection to prevent bruising.
Kim attributes her flawless skin to chemical peels. “It helps turn over new cells, reduce fine lines, and stimulate collagen.” She is also a big proponent of the fillers. When advising me as to what she feels would best suit my needs, her recommendations were different than others I received, and totally won me over. But then she also started her consultation by handing me a mirror and asking what bothered me.
Discussing her growing practice, Kim said: “I am a mom. I wanted to make my practice accessible for women who thought they couldn’t afford it. I love what I do. But I am also all about safety. You can trust me. If I feel I can’t do it, I won’t even try.”
Kim is happy to provide each of her clients with personalized analysis and treatment. Each client is encouraged to become educated and active participants in the care of their skin and she has various skin care treatments that she is ready to recommend.
