Denise Dubois graduated from the Catherine E. Hinds Institute of Esthetics in 1984, and is currently the president and owner of Complexions Spa for Beauty & Wellness in Albany, New York. One very important component of Complexions is the medical spa, which Dubois implemented after building a solid bond with dermatologists and plastic surgeons. She has also developed a program for Age Management Skin Care. In the spring of 2009, Complexions became the first spa in the country to receive Gold LEED certification for new construction, one of the highest honors granted by the U.S. Green Business Council.
