Kimberly Cole

Esthetician

A second generation esthetician and a self-proclaimed “Skin Care Nerd,” Kim began her career by studying nutrition and ingredients — often the root cause for most imbalances. Fascinated by the body’s ability to be a “Healing Machine” given the proper environment, she soon turned her attention to creating that environment. With a passion for knowledge, Kim continued her education with proven academic specialists, scientists and doctors (both Holistic and Western) and has honed her 25 years of experience into a unique skincare philosophy. Kim specializes in sensitive, acne ridden and aging/menopausal skin as well as pigmentation issues, and works closely with each client to correct the core issue, and hand pick treatment plans to create significant results that are lasting and at times, life changing.

“Kim Cole is a magician. She has completely changed my face.  I’ve been with her since 2002.  She is simply the very best there is and I highly recommend her.” – Katie Arnoldi, Author & Screenwriter

“She was awesome! Her extractions were as painless as they could possibly be and I actually fell asleep at one point. Afterward, my face looked amazing! Blackheads gone, face glowing…” – L. C., Beverly Hills

Esthetician

Amanda Coggin Esthetician

As a teenager Amanda would research ingredients, steam her pores, and create facial masks out of items found in the cupboards and fridge—so a career in skin care was a natural fit! She’s come a long way from the kitchen, but that scientific spirit has stayed with her. She is still using steam and cocktailing masks, but now with professional ingredients and techniques. And that spirit has allowed her to perform top-notch skin care services for her clients at Spa Sophia. Drawing on a deep understanding of the skin and body, Amanda strives to provide balanced skin care achieved through the most innovative and natural sources available. “It’s an exciting time to be a skin care professional, as we have access to the knowledge and tools necessary to address a variety of skin care needs and concerns.
