We had the good fortune of connecting with Nesrin Brecheisen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nesrin, why did you pursue a creative career?
I was born and raised in Turkey. Education was so important always so I went the first college blindly, then my big passion raised greatly for Theater so I went to the second college, which is my bachelor..I played tv shows, commercials, and movies. With acting, you need to delve deep into your psyche and fearlessly go where %99 of people wouldn’t. You need to be open all your heart to your past, to your present. In that time I could not think of any other career for myself but acting only giving my family traumas. I guess it was a way for me to recharge by express too many emotions in too many characters. I also was obsessed with beauty products since I was a child. My husband American, when we decided to live here USA I decided to uncover my skincare passion and went Esthetic School in Seattle.
What should our readers know about your business?
Actually, I never dreamt to have my own skin clinic or being the boss, over the years working in medical spas, doctor’s offices I came to realize I can do better on my own. Whatever I did, I did it with passion, I have been invested myself. I’ve been doing facials for almost 11 years and the whole time what I like to do is educate my clients and explain that your skin is telling a story about what’s happening inside your body or happening in your life. What we don’t realize that skin directly correlates to our digestive system. If we eat something we can’t digest or have trouble digesting, there are consequences! I don’t like referring to my work as antiaging, my job is to keep the skin healthy, function at its best. Skin is %25 of our immune system so that’s the reason we need to listen to them and give what they need and protect. All of a sudden we have these twenty-year-old girls who are doing Botox. It just doesn’t make sense for people to eat cleanly and exercise, then put this neuron-paralyzing agent into their system regularly” In my opinion, it should be as often as they go to Mcdonalds! LOL! You can cheat but not all the time. In my practice, I just try to change the idea of what it means to take care of yourself.” Anyone can have great skin, consistency is everything just like a good diet or exercise…. my most asked treatment uses Nanoneedling, microcurrent facial, LED light therapy, I use all of these in one treatment to give great results with a non-invasive approach.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite places hiking at Torrey Pines State Reserve has been mediation for me, Beach day in Coronado island Silver strand Beach. Visit Old town for a Great margarita and tacos. Biking/walking at Miramar Lake.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I could not able do without my husband’s support. My biggest weakness anything involves numbers. I can easily say it is almost an allergic reaction. So he is really has been patient with me helping everything.
