When it comes to skin care customization SKN BAR RX, located in Shorewood, WI, knows exactly what they’re doing with their extensive customizable cosmetic treatment plans. The soft colors, gorgeous window lighting and use of sustainable bamboo provides a renewing and inviting feel immediately upon entering the medical spa, which is the perfect preparation for any treatment experience. Oftentimes, when I think or hear “medical spa” a very clinical image comes to mind, but SkN BAR RX does a fantastic job of keeping the entire environment feeling cozy, yet luxurious, even going as far as to have a crackling fire set up on each TV in the treatment rooms. From laser hair removal, to injectables to skin treatments, there is little that this medical spa doesn’t offer their guests.

Skin Inc. sat down with Angelica Caravello, regional educator for Edgeless Beauty Pro, to learn more about the spa’s unique treatment options, how they train their staff and how exactly they go about making each treatment so customizable.

Skin Inc. (SI): How did you get started in the industry?

Angelica Caravella (AC): My aunt owned a salon in Laguna Beach, CA where I was growing up. There, I worked as a receptionist as one of my very first jobs, and I fell completely in love with the beauty industry from the atmosphere, the smells, the way clients would feel after receiving a service. I knew at that age of 16 that I would be a part of the beauty industry. In college, I was the friend everyone came to do their makeup for a night out or shape their eyebrows. After graduating college, I obtained my esthetician license, and I’ve been working in the treatment room ever since for more than 15 years.

SI: Why did this spa choose to incorporate the Ultraceuticals brand?

AC: Ultraceuticals is a leading cosmeceutical grade skin care line in Australia and promises clients real visible results in 90 days. One of the many reasons our spa chose this brand is its philosophy on taking a progressive, not aggressive approach to the skin. The philosophy of corneotherapy, or building the health of the skin’s natural barrier function first, then treating the skin with actives is also a focus of the brand. Ultraceuticals is very particular about the ingredients they choose to use in the products, and everything is formulated and extensively tested in-house. Ultraceuticals is paraben free, SLS and SLES surfactant free, and made without petroleum-based ingredients.

SI: What is your favorite part about the spa industry?

AC: My favorite part about the spa industry is the relationship and bond that is created between the esthetician and the client. Also, the impact I have on how a client feels after a service is so rewarding. I am lucky to be the best part of their day, to make people look and feel their best.
