Jen has been a practicing licensed Esthetician for 16 years. Her interest began in her early 20s while serving in the Air Force. Her ongoing struggles with problematic skin seemed to peak at this time. After seeing countless dermatologists and other practitioners with little improvement, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Jen became dedicated in skin care research and wanted to help others. This is when she stepped out of the uniform and into the treatment room! Her career has given her the opportunity to work and train with some of the top resorts and spas in the country. Some of these include: the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO, Remede Spa at the St. Regis in Aspen, CO, Bliss at W Hotel, Dallas, TX, and Milk+Honey, Austin, TX. She is trained and certified in the areas of advanced corrective skin care treatments, deep pore cleansing, hydrafacials, peels, microneedling, microblading, lash extensions, brow shaping, tinting, lash lifts, and Brazilian/body waxing.

Jen’s overall goal is to provide her clients with results-oriented skin care and enhancements so they can feel and look their best. She stays current on health, life style, and nutrition and is happy to help guide clients on these matters. She is excited for the opportunity to work with you.

Testimonial

Brandi has an amazing eye for aesthetics and can identify and correct subtle issues the make a BIG difference. Her results are naturally (but effectively) beautiful, not overdone. She is a talented and caring medical professional. Highly recommend!!

I cannot tell you how excited I am that I found Austin Skin and Wellness! Their brand new office is state-of-the-art and they are always so kind and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. I've already had two SkinPen appointments and I can't wait to see even more progress! I literally saw results after the first treatment on Day 3. Brandi really listens to your concerns and teaches about how she can best fit your needs!

Brandi and her staff are so knowledgeable about skin and all kinds of treatments but they also never push you to buy more products or treatments. Brandi’s wealth of knowledge about products from different lines as well as treatments is cutting edge. Her office and team are all wonderful especially Aly at the front desk.

I love this place so much and so will you! And by the way, it’s never too late to have gorgeous skin.... I know because I’m 71!
