Lily Strand
Licensed Aesthetician

Lily Strand

With over a decade of working in both the holistic and medical skincare world, Lily’s passion within the beauty industry lies with joining the two philosophies to achieve clear, radiant and above all healthy skin.  All of her twenties were dedicated to finding a remedy to clear her adult acne. Spending thousands of dollars  on treatments, prescriptions, and overpriced products marketed toward “acne” with no single solution, she decided to take matters into her own hands.  After years of research, studying under the best skincare professionals in Los Angeles, putting herself through esthetics school, and working hands-on with her own clients, she has mastered the art of customizing treatments to each individual’s lifestyle, age, ethnicity, and skin type.  With a structured, scientific approach to her treatments, she utilizes highly results-oriented technologies combined with nourishing holistic techniques to encourage the skin to renew at a rapid rate, drastically improving tone, texture and resilience.
Lily’s multifaceted approach includes sharing a space and collaborating with the one and only Dr. Bickle to achieve game-changing results by pairing medical grade skincare with clinical facial treatments
