Erin Schreiner has been in the business of helping people feel more comfortable in their own skin for over 30 years.
“I was obsessed with skin care since I was a teenager,” she said. “I sold Jafra products, then Mary Kay product, then was an electrologist for many years. In the 90s, I was trained by a plastic surgeon in laser therapy. I got my certifications, started my business in Manchester [Vermont] and now am excited to expand my business in Saratoga.”
Cosmetic Laser Therapy will open in mid-November at 377 Church St. in Saratoga Springs, with introductory hours on Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Schreiner is a certified laser professional, license esthetician and registered electrologist (CLP LE RE). Her specialty is in skin tightening.
Schreiner will be introducing her clients to the Pellevé skin tightening machine. She said it is a state-of-the-art machine recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
“Pellevé provides the most effective laser treatment in the industry today,” she said. “The process eliminates down time and has no contradications for being in the sun afterwards.” The machine is manufactured by Ellman International.
"The results are amazing. This new technology means clients can look younger in their 50s without aggressive surgery and with little discomfort," she said.
Cosmetic Laser Therapy also offers microdermabrasion, oxygen facials and durmaflex facials. The office also carries two exclusive lines of anti-aging products – Intraceuticals and Skinceuticals.
Schreiner is a native of Newport, R.I., and has over 20 years of professional skin care experience. She has worked in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Vermont.
"I have to say, coming to New York to start a business has been a very positive experience. The state licensing board was very helpful," she said. "They walked us through a 10-page application process, answering all of our questions. They were very kind."
Schreiner's Vermont Laser Therapy has assisted over 3,500 clients in Vermont since 2007.
She is a graduate of the Vermont College of Cosmetology and Electrology Institute of New England. Schreiner had extensive laser training in central Massachusetts and became a certified laser professional through Allied Health Association. She frequently participates in continuing education seminars and attends laser trade shows to keep current on the latest technology and trends in the industry.
"I feel fortunate I am in a field that I am passionate about," she said. "It's a great feeling to help someone feel better about themselves and to know the self confidence that brings."
