Lead Aesthetician

Linda St. Jean

Linda is a licensed Aesthetician with 20 years experience in Medical Aesthetics. She joined Pura Vida Medspa after working with several Washingtonian Magazine top-doc practices in cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery. She also worked with organic spas in the DC area and offers a holistic approach to skincare. She received her degree in Aesthetics and Makeup Artistry from Yvonne DeVilar School of Scientific Skincare in Vienna, VA and studied Lymphatic Drainage at the Upledger Institute. She has certifications in Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels and advanced combination therapies, and training in Dermaplaning, Microcurrent, and more. She enjoys keeping up with current trends and helping her customers with their skin is her passion. One of the factors inspiring her to study Aesthetics was her own lack of results from expensive department store brands and facials with Aestheticians who didn’t guide her. She enjoys offering customers services that will most help them – whether their goal is a monthly facial ritual to help decompress and improve the skin, or more therapeutic skin “workouts” via peels and more to enhance the skin’s beauty and health.

Fun Fact: Linda played classical piano as a child and won a scholarship to a music school in high school. She loves dancing and used to go salsa or swing dancing several times a week where she made some of her best friendships.
