A new skin care studio aims to bring a little serenity to Los Altos.
Marjan Kashi, owner of Pure Serenity Skincare, opened her doors in late August at 648 Fremont Ave. in Rancho Shopping Center. The location is the former home of Estatements Luxury Consignment, which moved to 395 Main St. in downtown Los Altos earlier this year.
Kashi began practicing as a medical esthetician for Jane S. Weston, M.D., a plastic surgeon with a private practice in Atherton. She is continuing her trade by opening her own skin rejuvenation center.
“That was my main goal in the beginning – to open up a skin rejuvenation center where my clients could come to get everything done,” said Kashi, who is scheduled to host an official grand opening noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Kashi, a licensed esthetician and electrologist, earned her bachelor’s degree in clinical science at San Francisco State University with the intent to pursue her passion for skin care.
Her battles with acne as a teenager motivated her professional career. The experience, which included seeking numerous treatments, inspired her to help others encountering similar problems.
“I am here to help those who are suffering because they haven’t gotten an answer for their condition,” Kashi said. “I want people to know that a solution for every condition is possible to achieve.”
Kashi’s studio offers a variety of services including facials, peels, electrolysis, waxing, microdermabrasion and skin tightening, in addition to a comprehensive inventory of skin-care products.
“The majority of my clients don’t just come for one thing,” said Kashi, who added that most of her business stems from microdermabrasion treatments and hair removal, in addition to skin rejuvenation procedures, which are especially popular among her clients. During those treatments, light and heat energy therapy reduces the visibility of sunspots, blood vessels and acne scars.
Kashi aims to make her services affordable for all clients.
Making others feel and look good is a rewarding experience, according to Kashi.
“Treating acne or removing unwanted hair could change how someone sees himself or herself,” she said. “It makes them feel good when they look in the mirror.”
