Skin Perfect Team
Some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Jaclyn Peresetsky, owner of Skin Perfect Spas and an esthetician, was born with a makeup brush in her hand. Ever since she can remember, she has been captivated by makeup, skin care, color and all things beautiful. Her interests led her to receiving specialized education at the Columbus College of Art & Design where she studied color theory and portrait artistry. Jaclyn married her expertise in color theory with her interest in skin care and cosmetics by studying with the best plastic surgeons and skin care therapists at the Ohio State University. She has worked as an esthetician for some of the most renown plastic surgeons in the mid-west. She is known as the go-to- expert in Central Ohio and Southwest Florida areas for her skincare and cosmetics lines, skin analysis, customized treatment and skin care programs and therapies, custom blend makeup, eyebrow design, permanent makeup, and color analysis, having served many of the same skin-glistening clients for over a decade.
An entrepreneur at heart, Jaclyn pursued a venture that eventually led her to open Skin Perfect Spa in Worthington, Ohio in 2006. The spa is known for creating custom skin care, microcurrent treatments (yes, this is the treatment that even caught the attention of Oprah), oxygen facials – the exact same treatment that Madonna can’t live without – microneedling, color analysis and other spa services. Jaclyn has been featured in Capital Style magazine, Business First, numerous web sites and blogs around the US and is a regular guest on Fox’s Good Day Columbus. She is the author of Discover the Power of Your Colors about how incorporating color in your life can increase your happiness. She also writes articles for various professional skin publications such as Skin Inc Magazine and Skin Deep magazine. She is releasing her next book in 2017, titled, Smart Skin Is Perfect Skin, in which she shares complexion strategies for smart people that want to be smart about their skin.
In 2009, Jaclyn and a previous business partner opened Identity, a retail store in Worthington Mall in Ohio that offered a unique color analysis process that expanded upon Color Me Beautiful’s 1980’s system. This experience in retail was pivitol as it gave her a better understanding of the retail market and what holes there were in the beauty industry. In 2010,she created Colore Me Perfect mineral cosmetics that offered color perfected makeup for even the most difficult complexion to match. She test proof of concept in her retail store Identity and in her Skin Perfect Spas. She also developed a color and makeup application education system that she teaches to her staff, privately and in trade show industry classes. She later decided to consolidate the store concept inside of her Skin Perfect spa so there is a strong retail experience and service balance in her spas. Recently, Jaclyn also opened a second Skin Perfect location in Columbus,OH in 2014, followed by a third location in Naples, FL in 2015. She is now working on a patent of a color identification system that she created to better identify unique color characteristics that make choosing makeup effortless. With this pending patent, she will take Colore Me Perfect cosmetics national. Committed to continuous education, Jaclyn travels the world to learn of new techniques and product lines for skin care and makeup as well as doing speaking events and news segments. Through this intense experience of launching multiple businesses while in her 20s and now maturing the businesses in her 30s, Jaclyn enjoys the love and support from her husband (Dmitry) and two sons (Misha and Maksym) and truly enjoy their new home in Naples, FL.
Jaclyn’s best accomplishments are hearing her skincare clients swell with confidence as they tell her stories of the compliments they receive about their skin and how happy they are with their results. Through these strong and heart felt connections grows her drive to keep pushing for the best skincare products and treatments for the spa’s clients. She attribute much of her success to her amazing Skin Perfect team and her cherished spa clients.
