Today we’d like to introduce you to Roxanne Drese.
Roxanne, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was raised in sunny Florida. My mom was in the spa industry, so I grew up learning about aesthetics and developed a strong passion for it. When I was young, my mom would often bring my sisters and me to the spa with her. One day she found us in the break room using one of the microdermabrasion machines. I think I was only 11!
As an adult, I moved all over the country. I lived in California, Virginia, Arizona, and finally landed in Texas. I always wanted to visit different spas in the states I lived and traveled. I was always a spa/product junkie, and I still am to this day! Not only did I always have a great interest in aesthetics, I have struggled with my own skin as well. My skin is affected by rosacea, melasma, had a span of cystic acne, and then in 2014, I was diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma. Before my cancer diagnosis, my passion was beautiful skin. Now, my passion is helping others and healthy and beautiful skin. I have had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the best physicians and aestheticians in the industry. At Skin RX, we offer some of the best and most advanced services, and we use products with the best quality and safest ingredients on the market. Last year was an exceptional year for growth of my small business and we have expanded based on the needs of our customers. We now have a team of fabulous aestheticians to assist our clients with the unique needs of their skin. Our goal is to help each client feel comfortable and confident in achieving and maintaining healthy, glowing skin.
Whether it’s a FaceTime consult across the country or a SkinRX Signature Facial, we customize every treatment and product regimen for our clients who range in age from 13 – 93. As aestheticians, we feel amazingly fulfilled by giving a shy teenager with acne a huge self-esteem boost or helping a tired mom feel lively and more beautiful!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. Any small business owner will tell you that. In the beginning, I struggled with work/life balance, especially and a mom of two young daughters. It’s important to always make time for family. Time goes by too quickly. The fact is, school doesn’t prepare you for the real world. My advice is to keep your head up, do not let negativity get in your way, move past it and keep your eye on your goal. Hard work, determination and relentlessness will help you achieve your goals. I feel very blessed to be where I am right now.
Please tell us about SkinRX by Roxanne.
Our goal is to equip each client with knowledge about their own skin, whether it’s on how to best shape their eyebrows or the best treatment for those annoying eye wrinkles! We carry over seven professional lines and customize each treatment. We’re best known for our Micro needling, chemical peels and our customized facial treatments for all skin types! These are not your typical spa massage facial treatments either. You will have to come in and see for yourself why our clients love us so much.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I am successful today because of the many mistakes I’ve made and the people that had have an influence on me. I have had incredible mentors and now to the point in my life that I’m able to mentor others. I believe if you keep a positive attitude and work hard then success is inevitable.
