Tell us about TEAL's services & offerings

TEAL offers facial aesthetics and skin care treatments and products in a boutique style spa setting. We believe in natural results and enhancements.

Why did you start TEAL Elite Med Spa?

TEAL stands for The Elite Aesthetic Lifestyle and was created to help clients sift through all the available options and treatments in the skin care world. TEAL only offers products and treatments that have been proven to work. We also network with other companies that we believe in and trust. Looking and being healthy is a lifestyle approach and that is what we want for our clients. We give them the tools and knowledge to take their skincare journey to the next level.

What’s been the biggest challenge running your Med Spa?

The hardest part has been trying to find the time to fit everything in between my other job, children, and personal life. I am the only employee so I always have something that needs to be done!

What’s your favorite memory so far from running your business?

My favorite memory is when a client walked into my clinic after receiving a botox treatment from me two weeks prior and said “That was the best botox I have ever gotten in my life”! It gave me validation that I was doing something right and I knew I was providing the best results possible. I have many loyal clients and I feel honored that they keep returning to me.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Most people don’t know that my background is in anesthesia. In order to deliver safe anesthesia you need to be thorough in your assessment and delivery. I carry these skills with me in my aesthetic treatments.

I also write and play music. Having an artistic side also helps me identify the most aesthetically pleasing options when delivering treatments.

What trends are you keeping an eye on in the aesthetic industry?

Platelet Rich Plasma and Fibrin, Exosomes, Daxxify, EMFACE, Peptide and Collagen treatments.

Any big plans for TEAL in 2024?

I anticipate a new, larger location and addition of newer, cutting edge treatments such as Platelet Rich Fibrin and Exosome treatments.

What are some of your favorite Charleston businesses?

Intervene MD, Glowing Grins, Longevity and Wellness, HKB cosmetic surgery, Island Real Estate, Empire Engineering, Oyster Candle Company.
