Meet Sara Alvarado

Your Licensed and Experienced Esthetician

My career in the beauty industry began as a Makeup Artist in Chicago for many models and brides-to-be.  Time and time again, I saw beautiful women with skin conditions ranging from mild to severe acne, pre-mature aging, sagging facial muscles, and skin, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, lifeless, dull or dry skin.  I saw it all.  As a makeup artist, all I could do was try cover up the skin conditions and imperfections.  Realizing I could do much more, I become an Esthetician and that allowed me to address these skin conditions and help people achieve skin that is HAPPY!

I attended International Training Academy and I excelled in school, and soon after, I became a Certified Medical Assistant and later a Certified Microblading Artist and Certified Lymphatic Therapist. Yes, I am a professional student and I will never stop learning.

I now have over 13 years of experience...

 

Prior to working at International Skin Beauty Academy Chicago), as Manager, Recruiter and Director of Continuing Education,. I worked for a well known Facial Plastic Surgeon and a renowned Chicago-area Dermatologist, holding positions as Lead Esthetician within a Medical Setting, Cosmetic Coordinator, Marketing Coordinator and Certified Medical Assistant.  Other experience includes Managing a salon and a successful Makeup Artistry business. 

My family and I love spending time together exploring South Carolina and traveling abroad.  I enjoy yoga, hiking, Zumba, cooking, gardening, traveling, meditation and healthy living. I also enjoy keeping up on the latest skincare trends, making it a point to attend as many skincare shows and conferences as possible, and bringing back knowledge and skincare secrets to my private studio.
