Celia T Koski, RDH, LA, PST
As the owner of Face First, Celia discovered the field of therapeutic skin care when she made a career change after more than thirty years in the dental profession. She was drawn to skin care for the caring and nurturing aspect of the profession and the medical and biological foundation behind providing therapeutic skin treatments to treat skin conditions, skin diseases, improve skin health and prevent skin cancer.
As a professional skin therapist, Celia is passionate about educating clients regarding skin health, skin diseases/conditions, skin cancer prevention and the benefits of regular professional skin treatments. In treatment sessions, clients will be provided with product samples that are suited specifically for their skin type and skin condition along with broad spectrum physical sunscreen.
Celia is dedicated to continuing her education, and for this reason, she has taken over 200 hours of post-graduate classes at The International Dermal Institute and obtained her International Certification. To achieve maximum efficacy in skin treatments and client home care, Celia has partnered with Dermalogica as her primary product line. She has also partnered with Ocean Elements, MD Solar Science, and Fallien Cosmeceuticals to offer additional physical sun screen protection products that are free of chemical sunscreens, oils, dyes and fragrance.
