My name is Kristin Longnecker. I was born in Indiana but I consider myself a native to the great state of Arizona, having lived here most of my life. When I was younger I suffered with acne and hyperpigmentation. I began using PCA Skin products and saw such great results that I decided to pursue aesthetics as a career. After graduating from ASU, I became a licensed aesthetician and joined the PCA Skin team as a physician consultant. In my twenty years there, I had the opportunity to share my knowledge of skin throughout the country as Advanced National Educator. I also had the opportunity to work at a dermatology office allowing me to apply my knowledge with clients. Some of the treatments that I specialize in include customized facials, chemical peels, microneedling, Dermaplaning, and laser treatments. I am so excited to be joining the team at Russo Salon and Spa at their beautiful location in Fountain Hills. I look forward to meeting you and customizing facial treatments based on your skin care needs.
