My name is Katie Pfadenhauer and I am a licensed skin therapist. My career began in this industry in March of 2008, when I passed my state boards in St. Louis, MO, from the Skin Institute, which is a Dermalogica certified school. I then moved to California to pursue more knowledge and training through the International Dermal Institute which is a post-graduate training facility for skin therapists. The International Dermal Institute is the difference between a licensed esthetician and a professional skin therapist. They push education to its limit by providing challenging and rewarding postgraduate skin and body therapy curriculum. I have been rewarded the Postgraduate Certificate of Achievement which confirms my completion of 100 hours of postgraduate training and the successful completion of an in-depth written examination. All examinations are personally reviewed by an instructor and Postgraduate Certificates of Achievement are distributed during a special commemorative ceremony. I was awarded with my certificate on July 10th, 2010 at the International Dermal Institute's headquarters in Los Angeles, California, by my mentor, the founder and owner of the International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica, Jane Wurwand. This was by far the highlight of my career so far. With my certification I am now considered among the best trained in the industry. What does this mean for your skin? Quite simply: Real Treatments. Real Answers. Real Products. Real Results! My promise to you is that your skin will never have felt as clean, or as healthy, as after one of my professional services; nor will you leave my Skin Bar without truly understanding your skin and its needs.
Dermalogica is the #1 professional skin care brand worldwide. I cannot say enough about how amazing their skincare line is. They are commited to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through advertising, frilly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or
