Owner of Katie Riley Skincare located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Owner of Suite Glow Skin Care and Wax located in Saint Augustine, Florida.

My name is Katie, I'm a licensed esthetician and certified acne expert! My personal struggles with acne throughout high school and college triggered my passion into skincare. I would research every ingredient in a skincare product before I applied it to my skin. Countless days and nights trying to figure out what products worked and didn't work on my skin. I became devoted to researching skincare ingredients, products, brands, estheticians, etc. and I knew that this was something that would be in my life forever. After 3 years of working in a corporate marketing job, I knew I wasn't reaching my full potential and that I needed to follow my heart. After full support from my family and friends, I made the leap to transition into becoming an esthetician. I always dreamed of helping people who were in similar situations to me with their skin. Enabling somebody with knowledge on how to achieve healthy and clear skin is so rewarding and reminds me why I became an esthetician. I love helping people attain their skincare goals and watching them grow confident in their bare skin.
My main area of expertise is treating acne. Since dealing with it myself for so many years, I understand the struggle and desire to be clear. My acne treatments consist of a 3-month minimum boot camp treatments, as well as taking home a brand new skincare routine. I always take progress photos so that we can look back at where we started and show off how far we've come. After my clients finish their acne treatments, I suggest Procell treatments to help with residual scarring or hyperpigmentation. During these Procell treatments, a client is numbed for ultimate comfortability, once that is removed I proceed by applying the Procell stem cell serum to the skin, working in sections. I start most of my clients off with a 0.25 microchannel depth and begin the service. After the microchanneling is finished, I apply one last layer of stem cell serum, drape a cooling and hydrating sheet mask over the skin, and place a red LED light over the client for 20 minutes. The Procell treatments are so relaxing that most of my clients feel no irritation at all, they usually take a nap! I also offer Procell treatments on stretch marks!
It's so fulfilling when a client originally comes to me and is unhappy with how their skin looks but we're able to partner together and achieve healthy skin. I love having clients trust me with their skin. Following my dream and passion to become an esthetician and start my own business was truly the best career decision I've ever made. This industry is so supportive of one another and there are always new technologies and products coming out. If anyone out there is thinking about leaving the "safe option" to follow their dream, this is your sign. It can be intimidating at first, but I believe if you truly feel passionate about it you can achieve it. Thank you to all my clients for trusting me and working with me, I love you!
My name is Rosemery Angier, owner of Suite Glow Skincare and Wax, located in St. Johns County, Florida; specialize in facials, chemical peels, dermaplaning, and hydrafacials, and best of all became a practitioner since beginning my journey with Procell Therapies since 2021. I control all phases of my operations, which include; customer service, marketing, pricing, and more. I have been a licensed Esthetician since 2011 and practiced in Baltimore, MD. I started my own practice in Jacksonville, FL in 2019. I am also licensed in Colombia, South America. I have been able to continue to advance my skills and techniques, working safely and treating my customers to a great experience are always my goals. I have been providing treatments with Procell for the past 2 years at my practice. This has been a rewarding experience not only for my clients but for me as well. The change I have seen in my clients' skin has been 100% memorable and my customers continue to come back for more.
It has always been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to help others feel pretty in their own skin. My focus is not to only treat the skin topically with high-quality products and skin treatments but to also feed the body internally with what it needs.
I graduated from cosmetology school in 2004 and began my career in a hair salon.
Shortly after beginning my career as a hairstylist, I developed celiac disease and during this time of my life, I had struggled with cystic acne pretty bad caused by the celiacs which led me to my passion, skin.
I realized when I was only doing hair that something was missing and just wanted more. Jump forward to 2010 when MAC’s Lash & Skin Studio was established. I am incredibly passionate about helping others feel beautiful on the inside and out.
My skin journey was self-taught because back in 2004 no one knew anything about celiacs and how the gut contributed to skin health so I learned how to listen to my body and feed it what it needed with natural organic foods and good skin products topically and learning what treatments work best for the skin that provides results. This personal experience helped me to learn how to help treat my clients on a whole new level. Being a results-driven esthetician, my goal is to give my clients the best skin that they have always dreamt it to be. I do not only treat the skin topically but I treat it as a whole inside and out and figure out what the underlying problem is internally with a process of elimination that could be an underlying contributor causing acne or skin concerns. My specialty is treating acne and reversing aging. Finding Procell at a skin show in Philadelphia, PA many years ago was one of the best things that happened for me personally and for treating my clients. Microchanneling is hands down one of my absolute favorite skin treatments and provides incredible results for both acne and anti-aging. Being one of the top requested treatments at MAC’s, this is one of our clients' favorite go-to treatments.
I received my first treatment and I was sold!! The compliments that I received on my skin immediately in the following days were incredible. The plump and the glow that my skin had was what did it for me and then to see the results it was providing my skin with continued use I knew this was a lifetime treatment I would forever love. Seeing how many clients' skin that my team and I have transformed over the years is one of the best feelings. When our clients come to us with skin issues, wanting to reverse aging, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, or to prevent aging this is our number one go-to. To see the happiness on their faces as we are working to heal and repair… is the most rewarding!
Some of the benefits of this treatment are collagen production plumping the skin, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, a brighter complexion, improved skin texture, reduction of acne and acne scarring, and a boost in self-esteem with more youthful skin!
This 30-minute treatment has minimal discomfort and leaves your skin with a little redness and feels like a mild sunburn for the first 24 hours. But also, your skin feels plump, lifted, tight, and toned. Over the next weeks, you will continue to see results and your skin will glow.
I have so many! One of my most memorable though is how I transformed a young girl that had cystic acne and scarring to have beautiful clear, bright skin with no scarring. Watching her confidence go from nothing to everything has been one of my most rewarding experiences so far! Her smile says it all!!
Your skin is your largest and one of the most important organs. Nourish it well with all the healthiest foods internally and the cleanest products topically! Treat your skin every 4 weeks to reverse/prevent any skin issues and you will love the skin your in. Not only for skin health but also for mental health. When you feel good in the skin your mind will feel good also!
