Laura Cooksey’s Story

Our Founder

Laura is a nationally-recognized acne expert who has been invited to speak at several well-known esthetic congresses and conferences. Having suffered from acne from the time she was a teenager, she felt as if she had “tried everything” short of Accutane™ to get some relief from her constant acne.

In her mid-thirties, she finally found an esthetician who got her skin clear. She immediately felt compelled to help others as she had been helped. After all, she knew first-hand how adversely it had affected her life; and she wanted to spare others the agony of dealing with acne.


She became a California state-licensed esthetician in 1990 and set out to learn everything about acne that she could. After having been a sole practitioner for many years, her dream of opening an acne-only clinic came true in 2005. As a result of her astounding results with acne, other estheticians started demanding classes to learn her protocol. Out of this was born her comprehensive Acne Specialist training and she has certified over 400 skin care professionals, including nurses and doctors, around the United States. 

Laura knows first-hand how adversely acne can affect people's lives; and she wants to spare others the suffering that it can bring.

She organized the first U.S. conference for acne specialists in September 2014, and continues to write articles about acne and acne treatment in several skin care industry publications. She is continually doing research and testing products to increase her understanding of the disease known as retention hyperkeratosis, aka acne.
