Kim Pham - Owner / Esthetician
I was born in Vietnam but left the country since 1969 for Paris to continue my education in business and esthetics with the famous Carita Skin Care Institute and received my CIDESCO certificate in England - the highest international skin care diploma judged by the international board. I returned to the US to continue my career after working with lots of well known skin care salons in department stores like I MAGNIN and Liberty house. I opened my own studio in 1976 and worked in San Francisco for 10 years. I later moved to the company to Burlingame. My passion drives me to travel all over the world, finding the most advanced new discoveries that I can customize and educate my clients for the best result oriented products and treatments. It is my pleasure to now offer services by appointment-only at my home-based studio in San Jose.
