“With my years of being a teacher, I use the motto ‘Education, not medication’ in my esthetics,” says Kathryn I. Kailian. At age 57, her passion for teaching is just beginning. Kailian’s youthful exuberance keeps her motivated to take on the skin care problems of her clients with a vigor and excitement of a newcomer to the field.

When she decided to start a family and leave her position as an art teacher, she became an electrologist in order to work from home. After receiving her esthetic license in 1982, Kailian yearned for more and more education—taking courses at various institutions, and attending seminars and conventions whenever she had a chance. Her experience even led her to work with a plastic surgeon for 15 years as a paramedical esthetician. “Part of my experience is my exposure to all kinds of skin—which I love,” says Kailian.

After years in the industry, this self-professed acne specialist opened the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic in Washington, D.C., which focuses on customized skin care regimens tailored to each client’s needs, desired results and lifestyle habits. “I think I work a little differently than most estheticians,” Kailian explains. “I work internally and externally to treat the skin. My premise is that when a client has acne, they are predisposed to it as a form of detoxification.”
