She also focuses on the importance of home care, providing everything she uses during her treatments through retail, and encouraging her clients to purchase the full at-home regimen. “It’s a commitment on the clients’ part as far as home care. Eighty percent of skin care is done at home. If clients aren’t doing the proper protocols themselves, then all the treatments that they periodically get aren’t going to last because they’re not maintaining them,” she says.

An avid reader of skin care textbooks, Rowen advises other skin care professionals to similarly seek out knowledge in the field and to think outside of the box. “The only way to do that is to profoundly understand your products, what you’re using and how you’re using them,” she explains. This inspiring esthetician does have it all—and she earned it through hard work and dedication to her craft, and believes that every skin care professional has the capacity to do the same.
