Before & after pictures
Ida Lipscomb, RN, MA, agrees with the need for more regulation in the esthetic business boom.
A registered nurse for 18 years, Lipscomb owns The Skin Studio in the toney Piedmont neighborhood of Oakland, Calif. The studio offers a menu of traditional spa services such as massages, facials, and bikini waxes, along with laser hair removal, laser facials, acne treatment, chemical peels, and permanent makeup applications. Lipscomb, a former critical-care nurse, found her way into esthetic nursing by first becoming a makeup artist. She soon realized that many of her clients were using heavy makeup to cover up damaged skin. She trained in an esthetician program and started The Skin Studio in 1995. Many of her customers didn't date or socialize because of their conditions, she says, and having cosmetic procedures helped build their self-esteem. Lipscomb says she provides patient education and counseling and approaches her practice from a medical perspective. Estheticians, who go through training courses often provided at cosmetology schools, don't have to be nurses. But nurses who have esthetician training bring their knowledge of physiology and skin health to the work, Lipscomb says. "I don't miss hospital work because I continue to do patient care," she says.

That someone was Ida Z. Lipscomb.I drive 80 miles one way for each office visit.I discovered aesthetician Ida Lipscomb by accident after my previous aesthetician, Joan, moved away.I was desolate, for in seven years Joan had transformed my sun-damaged skin from blah to beautiful.I did not think there was anyone, anywhere, who could do what she had done for my face.Ida's monthly facials have further refined my skin tone, minimized by pores, and kept my 45+ year-old complexion glowing.People I meet always underestimate my age by at least a decade.I attribute this entirely to Ida's treatments, and her insistence upon daily sunscreen.Ida is gentle, thorough, reasonable, professional, and extraordinarily skilled.She uses first-rate products, some of which she compounds herself in order to supply her clients' individual needs.Ida's studio is conveniently located, and it is always easy to find parking.My husband, (also a monthly client), and I would not go anywhere else for facials.We know that in Ida Lipscomb, we have found the best aesthetician in the Bay Area. After many unsuccessful years of trying different remedies to treat my skin problems, I finally am able to see real results with Ida after just a short period of time.The problem areas are blending in gradually with my natural skin-tone, so much so that my boyfriend has even noticed it and complimented me on the change!Ida is truly a miracle. Fortunately, my dermatologist had the wisdom to refer me to an esthetician and that is where Ida Lipscomb at The Skin Studio comes in.I had been living a life were make-up was vital in order to cover my multiple blemishes and acne breakouts.After working with Ida Lipscomb and using here products, I have a far more beautiful complexion.When I came to Ida Lipscomb at that The Skin Studio a year ago, my face was dry with fine lines.I began using her lotion cleanser and aroma moisturizer and Wow, what a difference!My face is clearer, hydrated, and feels great.My family and husband think I look better.Thank you, Ida! Ida Lipscomb, owner of The Skin Studio has not only provided me with great products and excellent service, she has educated me on what it takes to truly care for my skin.The results have been exceptional.Ida has helped to change the appearance of my skin not only externally but also internally.I am a client of Ida's and I have also referred friends, colleagues and patients to The Skin Studio.I have been seeing Ida for skin care for three years.Her services are exceptional and the environment is comfortable.Ida is extremely professional and her skin care products are wonderful and affordable.I have been thrilled with my experiences at The Skin Studio and all of my referrals have been too.In 1999 I was introduced to Ida and The Skin Studio for skin care for my daughters and myself.At my first visit Ida was appalled at the sight of my brows, and told me unequivocally that she could correct the problem, but it would take time and patience on my part.I readily accepted the commitment.Over the next two years Ida continuously removed color from my brows until she was satisfied we had gone as far as we could go.Finally, this year she started to reshape and color my brows.Nicole and I swear by The Skin Studio products and Ida!
