Aesthetic Specialist

Dawn Stringini

Dawn Stringini

With over 20 years of experience, Dawn Stringini is a specialist in medical skin care. She continues to advance herself with ongoing education in skin care. Her focus is excellence.

Originally from Elmhurst, Dawn received her initial training at Pivot Point, Chicago in 1994. Her specialty training in medical skin care came when she was in Florida in 1995, working as an intern at Touch of Class Medical Skin Care and Massage Clinic. It was there that she learned about advanced skin care treatments such as Jessner, Salicylic, and TCA peels. She also utilized AHA exfoliates. Treatments included extensive extractions, peels, microdermabrasion, and masks. She also educated her clients on how nutrition and skin care work together.

Since that time, Dawn has been devoted to learning state-of-the-art skin care techniques, treatments, and products. The knowledge she has is passed on to her clients so that they, too, can care for their skin with ongoing results. She brings the latest advances and continues to research skin care ultimately for her clients.
