My name is Susan but my friends and colleagues know me as Sue. I am a proud New Yorker and have the privilege to call it my home for over the last two decades.
Skin care has been my life’s passion. Not only am I a licensed aesthetician, a certified aromatherapist and certified in clinical aesthetics but I have over 25 years of experience in this field.
My expertise has been honed through assisting a renowned NYC non-surgical injectable specialist who specializes in Botox, fillers and other specific cosmetic procedures, hands on experience and managing staff at a high-end personalized salon and curating multiple skin care merchandising lines. I pride myself on being current on all emerging methodologies but also embracing tried and true techniques.
As my clientele network expanded, I identified a critical need of addressing adolescent skin concerns and issues. During this stage of life, appearances are paramount and the condition of the skin plays a predominant role. By boosting the natural texture of the skin, it not only enhances one’s self esteem, it changes the whole persona by enabling them to put their best foot confidently forward. This positive energy will radiate into other parts of their lives and propel them into the future unfettered. It is a game changer.

HOW TEEN SKIN THERAPY BEGAN
When the pandemic swept through NYC, the personal care industry was decimated. Spas and salons were shuttered. I was no longer able to do what was intrinsic to my being – helping others. During those dark days, I soul searched to find a path out of the darkness and it was on this journey of discovery that the idea of TeenSkinTherapy began to sprout.
I saw first hand the devastating impact the shut down had on my teenagers and how their lives were completely uprooted. As stress is the number one culprit for problems with the skin, I realized that I had the skills to alleviate such issues.
Because of the protocols in place, I quickly pivoted to a virtual platform which provides a skincare coach at “arms reach” that can analyze, educate and recommend a sensible skin regimen that caters to their personal needs.
Teenagers need to understand that acne is the norm and not the exception. Hormone fluctuations are the root of the problems and beyond their control. But with a carefully crafted routine and healthy habits, they will have the right tools to combat and manage these concerns. And by starting young, they can build good skin care habits that they can maintain into adulthood and beyond.
CUSTOMIZED PRODUCT REGIMEN
There are a myriad of skincare brands on the market. It can be confusing, overwhelming and downright frustrating in choosing exactly what you need. One size does NOT fit all.
Realizing that time is precious, the more complicated the regimen is, the more unlikely it will be kept up, especially when it comes to teenagers. So I will streamline the process and simplify as much as possible, all within the framework of your budget and preferences.

- Eliminate what works and what does not work
- Optimize use of your existing brands of skin care products
- Recommend new skin care products if needed
