Born in Los Angeles and trained in Orange County, Carie Samonset is the founder of Luxe Skin Studio. Her belief in non-invasive, yet transformative skincare led her to create a studio, spotlighting express treatments with clinical effects. Carie’s results-obsessed clientele rely on her expertise and innovative treatment plans to keep their complexions glowing. Her extensive training, ambition, and professional nature paired with her commitment to discover breakthrough treatments, distinguishes her as the go to esthetician in Orange County, CA.

Before launching Luxe Skin Studio, Carie worked as a massage therapist and then in Human Resources managing luxury spas. As her interest in skin care piqued at the spa, her son developed a severe case of cystic acne. In her efforts to heal his complexion and rebuild his self esteem, Carie became obsessed with corrective skincare and decided to become a licensed Esthetician. She honed her technique at several O.C. spas and learned the clinical side of esthetics operating an upscale medical spa. A true skin care aficionado, Carie continues to advance her education and evolve her skincare services to reflect industry breakthroughs. Luxe Skin Studio aims to provide superior skincare with undeniable results.
