Carissa McCormack | Cosmetic Medical Laser Technician and Medical Aesthetician

Carissa is a Licensed Medical Aesthetician who has been working and teaching in the field for more than 14 years. She specializes in cosmetic laser procedures and customized medical and aesthetic skincare treatments for clients of all ages.

A BS in Physiology (a sub-section of anatomy), from the University of Florida, in Gainesville, affords an unusual but invaluable background for her work in aesthetic medicine. As a Clinical Educator and Clinical Trainer, she has provided hands-on training for a wide variety of devices such as Intense Pulsed Light, numerous lasers and radio-frequency systems. She became an International Clinical Trainer for Lumenis, a leading cosmetic laser company, and has trained physicians on their new devices in North, Central and South America. Carissa has been the Lead Study Coordinator for multiple FDA Phase III Open-label Clinical Safety Trials.

Her patient roster is a virtual “who’s who” of Beauty Editors, Health and Beauty Writers and beauty industry-related experts who consider her a wealth of knowledge with vast experience in aesthetic medical procedures and skincare. Carissa has been featured in print magazines for the HydraFacial MD® (her technique was touted as the “Best Facial Ever”), as well as WCBS, Refinery 29, Truth in Beauty,; No Nonsense Beauty blog and many others. With a passion for all things cosmetic, she is constantly seeking out the best technologies and treatments to keep her clients (and, okay – herself, too!) looking their best.
