Owner, Medical Esthetician

Meet Sophia, the fearless founder of Sophia Esthetic! With her impeccable sense of humor (even if she doesn't realize it), she's taking the esthetics world by storm. When she's not busy pioneering the industry, you can catch her shredding the slopes on her skis or perfecting her swing on the golf course. And let's not forget about her passion for dancing! Whether it's a night out with friends or a solo dance party in the bathroom, Sophia knows how to groove. She may be a bit chaotic at times, but that's all part of her charm. We can't help but love her infectious energy and unwavering dedication to making us all look our best. So, here's to Sophia: the queen of esthetics and the reigning champion of the dance floor!


Owner, Spa Manager

Meet Gina, the fashion-forward spa manager and part owner of Sophia Esthetic. She may be a small town girl, but her dreams are bigger than her hair on a humid day. When she's not managing the spa and her amazing team, you can find her on a road trip with her two boys and husband, singing along to all of the hits at the top of her lungs. Gina's passion for the esthetic industry is contagious, and she's not afraid to try new things. She once tried to convince her team to offer a "spa treatment" where you just take a nap while someone brushes your hair, but unfortunately, it didn't catch on. So, if you're looking for a good time and some killer skincare, come visit Gina and her team at Sophia Esthetic. You won't be disappointed - and you might just leave with a new outfit, too.

Meet Bianca, as part owner of Sophia Esthetic, she's got the perfect recipe for flawless skin that'll have you glowing like a light bulb.

But don't let her love for skincare fool you, because Bianca is also a permanent makeup artist who can transform your face into a work of art. She's like the Picasso of eyebrows! When she's not busy making people look fabulous, Bianca loves to travel with her soon-to-be-husband Vince and going on adventures with her two step-children. No Bianca bio would be complete without mentioning Mia, her Frenchie. She's convinced that Mia is actually a human trapped in a dog's body, and she treats her accordingly. Bianca also loves to workout, but don't be fooled - she has a major sweet tooth. Her favorite post-workout snack is a bag of gummy bears. So, if you're looking for a skincare guru who knows how to have fun, look no further than Bianca! She's the real deal, and she's ready to make you feel like a million bucks.
