EXPERIENCE IN AESTHETICS
Distinguishing herself from the European day spas and what she like to call "buff and fluff facials," Tina created a liaison with a plastic surgeon and medical laser clinic, and became the first aesthetician in San Antonio to have medical privileges in St. Luke's Hospital, offering post-surgical care for burn victims. During her fellowship with known leaders in plastic surgery, she acquired cutting edge techniques for skin resurfacing and the treatment of acne, acne scarring, skin discolorations and melasma.
With this experience, she was able to found San Antonio's leading skin care clinic and deliver the benefits of result-driven skin care products and procedures in the comfort of a spa atmosphere. Within the Clinique, she has worked and trained under renowned figures in aesthetics, including Dr. Lebaron Dennis, Dr. Sterling Baker, and Dr. Larry Lothringer.
