Bernice Das

Owner / Cosmetic Nurse Injector

What motivated me to start Skin Damsel? Good question. Maybe you were born with perfect skin, but for as long as I can remember, I have struggled with mine. Scouring the internet, talking to friends with new skin regimens, reading blogs, ordering products to attempt to smooth, soften and improve my skin issues has been a challenge for years. Starting Skin Damsel allows me to cut though the hype and misinformation out there and serve women (and men) with scientifically based aesthetic services that actually work. I am relying on my background as a cardiovascular nurse for over 20 years and my experience in being a research coordinator to bring our clients skincare and beauty regimens which have been proven through research trials and scientific fact not internet fiction. In addition, my experience in the medical sales industry makes me uniquely prepared to serve your beauty needs by understanding the balance between providing products a client needs over unnecessary sales. In light of that mission, I offer complimentary skin care consultations. Even if I can’t provide the treatment you need, I will guide you in the right direction. We at Skin Damsel are all certified, qualified and highly educated in each and every procedure we offer. It’s that commitment to training and certification that lacks in the aesthetic industry that we strive to be at the pinnacle of providing. Skin Damsel is the only aesthetic center with two board certified Medical Directors with expertise in both Plastic Surgery and Cardiovascular Vein treatments. We look forward to serving your questions and inquiries for all your aesthetic needs.

Aesthetcian

As a transplant from West Texas to Dallas in 2007, my family and the love of making new friends has inspired me. Beginning with graduation from Ogle Cosmetology and Beauty School in 2013 and launching iLash Studio and SkinCare of Frisco in 2013 my life has been about artistry, perfection and attention to detail. Skin Damsel is the next chapter of taking beauty and skin solutions to the next levels. As a licensed aesthetician, creating individualized health and beauty solutions for clients as people allows for a long-lasting relationship of trust. They say beauty is only skin deep…I disagree. Beauty increases self-confidence. Beauty empowers you. Increasing self-confidence through individualized health and beauty solutions. My specialties are eyelash extensions, facials, chemical peels, micro-blading, facial waxing, and making YOU feel fabulous! My clients feeling beautiful inside and out means everything to me!
