However, since she believes “there is no end to education” she continues to study, train and share her knowledge and experience.In 1997 there were only two companies holding the patents for manufacturing microdermabrasion equipment in the USA, and there were no educators for the procedures. Ms. Benoit purchased one of the first aesthetician model microdermabrasion machines sold in the United States from Derma Genesis. She assisted them, other companies and aestheticians to develop the protocols for Microdermabrasion treatments for both crystal and diamond methods. The ever changing world of skin care inspired her to evolve and specialize in medical spa consulting, yet because her passion has always been in education and training, she integrated education with her consulting profession.
