Bonnie K. – Aesthetician and Body Contouring
- Carnegie Institute, Certified Medical Assistance, 1991
- Oakland Community College, Licensed Practical Nurse, 1997
- Oakland Community College, Associates in Science, 1997
Why I became an Aesthetician: I worked in the medical field for several years and found my passion while working for a dermatologist who provided me with nutrition classes, skin care classes including: skin type and tone, assessing client needs, common skin care services, acne treatment care.
When I joined Schenden’s Medical Day Spa I was selected to be certified as an Endermologist on two different types of machines. I then provided consultations, treatments for the reduction of cellulite, treatment for post surg Pts for face and body. I love being able to provide my clients both skincare treatments and body contouring helping them be confident in their skin and body.
Client testimony: “I am a 62 year old male who was referred to Bonnie as a follow up to abdominal liposuction surgery. My procedure left me with the need for some fine tuning which required a combination of both Endermologie and Vela Shaping. The results have been phenomenal and have greatly exceeded my expectations. Through Bonnie’s expertise, she has enhanced my appearance to a level that I had not thought possible. My body looks more like that of a 30 year old than a 60 year old.” ~ Gary
