Meet Rowena

Rowena started her experience with health and beauty working summers in a small home town hair salon over 25 years ago. She quickly learned the positive effects of giving and receiving self care. 

She realized she enjoyed learning about ingredients, the application of hair, skincare and makeup and sharing this with others for them to receive the beautiful benefits. 


After a career in hair, skincare and makeup sales as a salon rep and store management,  Rowena entered the retail beauty space managing a team at makeup counters such as MAC and CHANEL. This is where her study of ingredients, the body and desire to get to the source of skin concerns led her to become a professional licensed esthetician. 

Fast forward to now owning Derma Bella Skin Studio for 15 years, she’s offered one on one, high touch, self care to thousands of clients through advanced skin treatments and home care using state of the art skin therapy devices. 


She prides her self on taking detailed and intuitive care of her clients, business and staff while balancing as a community volunteer, a fire fighter wife and mother of 2 young children. 


Thank you for joining us at Derma Bella Skin Studio. We want you to feel you’re in trusted experienced hands and we look forward to sharing our years of experience and knowledge with you.

Meet Chrissy

I am a certified licensed esthetician in Santa Cruz, Ca. My passion for skincare and make-up began at an early age, while participating in my mother’s Mary Kay workshops. From this point on, I was obsessed with products, make-up, skin care and sharing my “secrets” with friends and family.


I started my career as an esthetician in 2006. I have been blessed to love what I do for a living. Continuing my education and staying up to date with current trends is not only necessary, but my passion. I have worked in top spas, resorts and waxing centers. I pride myself on providing customized treatment for each individual. Whether the goal is to enjoy a relaxing spa experience, to receive a superior wax service or to treat problematic skin, I will create a unique plan specific to their needs.

I truly believe everyone deserves to look and feel their best.


I am happily married and the mother of two wonderful boys (ages 18 & 5). After becoming pregnant, I realized the importance of being conscious of the products (and their ingredients) I used, especially on a daily basis. It is just as important that I apply the same standards for products and treatments used in my facials, as well as what I recommend to my clients for home care.


I love that Derma Bella Skin Studio shares the same sentiment. My goal is to always provide each client with a customized and relaxing facial using results oriented products & services.
