About Us

about-esther-garcesEsther Garces, LE, CCE

Owner and founder of Esther’s Skin Care and Electrolysis,  Esther began her business in 1985 focusing only on hair removal. While helping clients with Hirsutism, she realized the need to treat their skin as well and went back to school to receive her license in Esthetics.  Working closely with an M.D. at the beginning of her practice and many years of continuous education has given her the expertise to help her clients with many skin care issues.

After 35 years, Esther will be retiring from Electrolysis in May of 2020 but will continue offering her services in skin care.
