    Provider Spotlight: Louisa Stepien

    SpaDerma West Loop Aesthetician, and Laser & Light Specialist

    You can find Louisa at our SpaDerma West Loop location and on her Instagram page @Louisa__Spaderma or, if her Holiday Wish List comes true, you'll find her on a beach vacation! Here's what Louisa had to say about all things skincare and getting into the aesthetics industry. 

    SpaDerma: How long have you been interested in skincare and how long have you worked at SpaDerma? 

    Louisa Stepien: I always loved taking care of my skin, but really started experimenting with more medical grade skincare and understanding the science behind it in 2015. After learning more I decided to go back to school for my esthetics license in 2016.

    I had always envisioned myself in a medical setting because I wanted to provide corrective skin care treatments and deliver what could be life changing results for people. 

    I’ve now been part of the SpaDerma family for 3 and a half years! 


    SD: What is your favorite treatment:

    Louisa: Vi Peels are my favorite right now.

    SD: What is a fun fact about yourself?

    Louisa: I am an avid rollerblader! 

    SD: Any advice for a beginner to the industry or SpaDerma?

    Louisa: Never stop learning! This is a forever-growing industry with new modalities and treatments constantly coming out. There’s always something new and exciting to learn about.

    SD: Favorite skincare products?

    Louisa: Alpharet Peel Pads and Serum from SkinBetter

    SD: Your AM + PM skincare routine?

    Louisa:  I like to keep my routines simple. I have breakout prone skin and find the less is more approach works wonders for me.
