Alyssa is welcomed to Beau Institute with vast beauty experience and skills. She is a NJ State Licensed Esthetician, Certified Makeup Artist, & Board-Certified Permanent Cosmetics Practitioner. In addition to her licenses, she is certified in microblading and paramedical 3D areola restoration.
Shortly after she received her Student Esthetics license, she was hired at a Medical Spa as a Medical Esthetician and performed extensive skin care services such as Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Facials & Waxing. It was there that she found her true passion for Permanent Cosmetics. After she graduated from her skin care program and delved deeper into the world of medical skin care, she realized she could use her makeup and skin care skills hand-in-hand to empower people with corrective cosmetics such as Scar Camouflage, Building Brows back for Alopecia Clients, and 3D Areola Restoration for Breast Cancer survivors.
To Alyssa, nothing is more empowering than being able to make others feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. “There isn’t a more rewarding job where you get to see your client who just battled Chemotherapy, cry tears of joy when she gets her first glimpse of her newly crafted eyebrows & tells you she feels whole again.”
If she can improve your quality of life through the services she provides, than she has completed her mission.
Alyssa is a Disney Vacation Club member & loves taking annual trips to Disney with her husband.
