Prior to founding Wax A Peel in 2011, Leah began her post-license career working for a Plastic Surgeon as a Clinical Esthetician – performing primarily chemical peels and cellulite treatments. She’s worked as the Head Esthetician for Clarins Cosmetics – helping them open their pilot store in San Francisco.
Leah also spent 2 years honing her craft at an upscale waxing salon – nailing down the best and least painful techniques for waxing.
She’s completed & received certifications for the level 1 and level 2 Advanced Peels Classes through Aesthetics Plus Training Center as well as certificates in advanced waxing including Body Beautiful Full Body techniques, the Cirepil Stripless Wax Course, and the Brazilian specialization course at Aesthetics Plus.
