Lets us welcome you to Skin Essentials Inc. Skin Essentials was established in March of 2007 as a vision to become an elite medical aesthetic spa. This vision was brought to life in February of 2008 as a permanent fixture at 1909 Mineral Spring Avenue in North Providence,
Rhode Island. The location was strategic in regards to local competition, a high traffic area, and central to Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. Since 2008 Skin Essentials has an established clientele of approximately 3000 or more active clients. Skin Essentials was created
to offer our clients professional yet intimate services designed to fit each person’s lifestyle, desires, and personal needs. We believe that every person is unique and deserves the utmost respect and personal attention.
