Providing rejuvenating laser, collagen-building laser, and all anti-aging services, Lori Alessandrini has served as the owner and a licensed esthetician at Essential Aesthetics and Laser in Charlotte, North Carolina, since 2014. The medical spa is a full-service clinic specializing in non-surgical cosmetic treatments and results-oriented beauty therapy that rejuvenates appearances and boosts confidence. Using a wide range of state-of-the-art light and radio frequency technologies and treatments such as Botox®, chemical peels, and dermal fillers, the providers create personalized treatment plans for precise needs. Notably, media personality Kim Kardashian has visited Ms. Alessandrini’s spa to film an episode of the reality TV series, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Prior to this role, Ms. Alessandrini began her career as a surgical assistant at Charlotte Oral Surgery in 2001, remaining in this position for four years. She then transferred to Atlantic Oral, Implant, and Facial Surgery, where she stayed from 2006 to 2011. Ms. Alessandrini attributes her professional success to a lot of hard work, as well as the support she receives from her family. As an illustration, two of her employees are her own daughters.
Preceding the foundation of her business, Ms. Alessandrini became a certified medical assistant in allied health and medical assisting services through the Concorde Career College in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1990. In addition, she became a licensed esthetician in esthetics through Miller-Motte Technical College in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 2013. Since receiving these accreditations, Ms. Alessandrini has made it a personal mission to provide customized services for each person that visits her spa. She has loved working with people and wants people to feel as beautiful as possible, as well as educate them about skin care and a healthy lifestyle. She loves that there are procedures that are non-invasive, which makes a big difference.
Ms. Alessandrini strives to get to know her clients and figure out the best game plan for them. The most challenging part is really knowing everything there is to know about the laser, the skin and skin type. Her business has grown from just her to three additional employees, so adding the employees and managing the business are also challenges that she is overcoming. What she has taught her fellow estheticians is to love their clients; when you get to know them and you love them, they know they are important to you. In recognition of her accomplishments, Ms. Alessandrini was named the Face of Esthetics by Charlotte Magazine two years in a row from 2017 to 2018.
