A background in photography, education & healthcare lead me to the world of esthetics. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas at Dallas with a secondary teaching certification, a BA in Literary Studies and History. I worked for Kodak in customer service and in sales, and later in the health care industry. The skills I gained from my previous positions, particularly as a teacher, paved the way for what I do now - help people achieve the healthiest skin possible.
I believe that a great facial starts with a discussion of the client's goals in addition to a correct analysis of the skin. A thorough understanding of the skin and how it works is vital to get results. New clients answer questions about lifestyle, diet, stress, current home care as well as medications and allergies, so that an integrated plan can be made.
In addition to the professional treatments and machines available, as an esthetician, it is my job to understand products and ingredients, both otc and prescription, the risks and benefits, as well as how they address the needs of the client. Not only are ingredients important, but also the method in which they are delivered to the skin.
"it is my job to understand products and ingredients.. the risks and benefits, as well as how they address the needs of the client."
I love educating clients about their skin and the products they need to achieve vibrant, radiant complexions. When shopping for skin care items, it's really all about the ingredients. A brand can be important after you get to know it, and you trust the source. This can only be achieved with knowledge of ingredients as well as quality and efficacy. There is a lot to know, so it’s essential to find a professional you trust to help you find what is right for you.
My mission as a skin care professional is to create a plan for each client that is something they will be able to incorporate in their daily lives. Compliance is everything! How you feel about what you're doing is so important because it determines whether or not you will follow the plan consistently. Regardless of the skin care issue you are facing, you can have beautiful skin, if you are consistent. The women and men who make their skin a priority have beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Sun protection, effective products and regular facials are the key to looking and feeling your very best!
I didn't have childhood dreams of becoming an esthetician. I didn't even know what an esthetician was until I stumbled upon it in my early twenties. My plan was to be a cosmetologist. When the administrator asked me what I was signing up for, cosmetologist or an esthetician, I replied, "What's an esthetician?"
After putting myself through school, and graduating in 2017, I got the opportunity to work for a very well-known esthetician who mainly works with young Hollywood clientele. I traveled, worked in the corporate office as the go-to skin expert for face time appointments, and soaked up that part of the industry. I learned so much about ingredients, skin types, skin conditions and hey, partying at the homes of pop stars and working in Bev Hills wasn't so bad either.
But, that wasn't it for me. Though I didn't grown up thinking about being an esthetician, I grew up knowing I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to change, or at least be part of the much-needed change in the beauty industry. Full inclusiveness! People with acne, vitilago, eczema, wrinkles, freckles (the list goes on). THESE ARE THE FACE OF BEAUTY! I don't buy into the message that you have to be younger, or appear younger to be considered beautiful. Or that you have poor hygiene if you have acne. Or that you need to erase your pores. My goodness, no wonder we're all having stress breakouts!
My goals are always to put the health and wellness of the skin first, and to educate you on how to keep your skin healthy. I grew up with acne, dermatitis, sensitivity and I'm starting to see signs of natural skin aging, so if anyone gets it, I do.
I look forward to taking care of you and your skin in the treatment room!
Praise for Sarah Zamora
Ever since I started getting facials with Sarah and using the products she recommends my skin has tremendously cleared up and redness has gone down. I now have a simple skin care routine to follow and I can feel confident when I’m not wearing make up. I will for sure keep coming back not only because my skin is amazing now, but because Sarah makes you instantly feel like she really cares about your skin care concerns and what you are looking for in a facial. She is simply the sweetest person ever and made me feel so comfortable the entire time! Thank you for my new found confidence!
When it comes to my skin journey, I feel like I given everything a try. From drug store brands to expensive brands, even MLM exclusive lines! But yet I never really saw that skin transformation that I longed for! That all changed once I started following Sarah’s recommendations at Denise Bell Skin Care. The products they carry are very carefully chosen to ensure they have the best for their customers and the knowledge that each of these ladies have is something that truly makes them different from the other spas! I used to blindly follow routines but now I know exactly which product to use. Sarah truly loves what she does and is happy to help her customers! Thank you DBSC for giving me the glow and clear skin I’ve always wanted! ❤️
In just a few months Denise Bell and Sarah have changed the way I will forever take care of my skin! Since I was 9 I have hated my skin and have tried everything to hide it. In September I went in on Peel Day and in less than an hour Sarah made me feel like it’s never too late to start taking good care of your skin, always wear sunscreen and make your skin care routine a habit, not a chore. All in a beautiful, relaxing spa where I felt very welcomed and peaceful!! I tell everyone about Denise Bell Skin Care and I’m a client for life!
