Dani Cosier, from Sioux City, Iowa but trained all over the country, sat down with us to discuss her career in the skincare industry, what led her to it and some of her favorite parts of the gig! Keep reading to learn all about Dani!
What inspired you to become an aesthetician?
I have always been obsessed with skin and skincare so when I found out I could have a career in skincare it was a dream come true! I love being able to combine the science of skincare with the holistic spa side to create a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for clients, while also creating real results.
Can you tell us a little about your career path in the aesthetics industry?
I found a great Aveda Institute in Louisiana, and while I was in school a laser institute came in and gave a presentation and I knew immediately that medical aesthetics was my future. After I graduated from aesthetics school and moved home, I found Luxury Laser Edu in Minneapolis and headed there for training in everything from lasers and microneedling to dermaplaning and medical grade chemical peels, which prepared me for my current position here at Midlands Cosmetic.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what would be your one must have skin care item?
What is the most common skin care mistake that clients make?
Not wearing SPF and not washing off makeup before bed.
What is your favorite treatment and why?
It depends on what skin problems someone has, but personally I love facials because they are so customizable and our medical grade products create real results! I also love the results you can achieve with microneedling and chemical peels, although again it all depends on each person’s skin goals and condition.
What is your favorite skin care ingredient and why?
Growth Factors! They work with your skin to create more collagen and elastin, which both makes and keeps skin firm and smooth. They can also be used with almost any other treatment making them very versatile!
What is the one piece of advice you wish every client followed?
Wear SPF! Sun damage is so much easier to prevent than it is to reverse. Using SPF is one simple step you can take to prevent everything from aging to deadly skin cancer.
