WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT
Gerry’s philosophy is to treat the problem, not the symptom. If you treat the cause of the problem, the symptoms disappear. Gerry also believes that if you educate your clients, they can make good decisions. This is extremely important. The Beauty Industry is a Billion Dollar business. People with no education or experience are making and selling skincare products. Unfortunately, they are making claims that are not true, and some are even dangerous. Our Estheticians and Body practitioners are highly trained and constantly expanding their knowledge through training and certifications.
We are dedicated to being a place clients can rely on to get the specific treatment or service to enhance their lives. We provide facial treatments, waxing services, and energy modalities. Therefore we treat a wide range of symptoms such as acne, aging, dry skin, etc. And we meet the needs of our clients with our men’s and women’s waxing. Finally, our energy modalities release energy blocks, cut cords, and heal on all mind, body, and soul levels. We want to be your trusted holistic place that you, your family, and friends visit often!
Gerry Christopher Skin Care & Waxing is also committed to helping Oncology/ Cancer fighters and survivors with our certified Oncology Esthetics, and Energy Practitioners. We provide a network along with resources to help you heal and restore. Our passion is to serve this community, and it sets us apart from the competition.
Gerry started her Holistic / Alternative medicine journey in 1982. After a severe car accident, Gerry discovered Chiropractic Care. It was a whole new world of holistic healing; while Chiropractic care was not popular at that time, Gerry was open to healing, learning, and observing. In 1991, while working in the Electronics field, Gerry was overexposed to chemicals. She started becoming allergic to everything and hypersensitive to chemicals. She discovered Ayurvedic medicine. This turned her life around.
When Gerry became a Licensed Esthetician, she also took classes to become certified in Lasers. She is certified in Laser Hair Removal, IPL Facials, Fractional, and Tattoo Removal. Her first job was a Med Spa in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Besides Lasers, she also performed Chemical Peels and Facials. She had many clients that came in with Acne, Rosacea, and Aging/ Hyper-pigmentation. She realized that the chemical peels were making her clients worse and not addressing their concerns. After a chemical peel burned a client, Gerry decided that she needed more intense and expansive education. She booked a Chemical Peel class in Manhattan, NY. This class changed her perspective completely – involving her life and career.
She realized that what she was taught before was misguided information. That she had been taught to address the symptom on the surface of the skin, which resulted in damage to the client’s skin. This set her off on an extensive educational journey and a serious decision she would have to decide which direction she would take her Esthetics Career. She decided that she didn’t become an Esthetician to damage the client’s skin and didn’t see any other skincare company with her Holistic vision. She knew this industry was in demand and was committed to holistic healing for the skin. She decided she would open Nu You Skin Care to stand by her morals, commitment and healing the skin naturally with this new alternative direction.
In 2013, she opened Nu You Skin Care and combined her knowledge of Ayurveda, Holistic treatments, and Esthetics. She was surprised to find another niche, Male Waxing. She went to London, England, and got her Certification in Male Waxing. She also realized that Skin Care companies were adding chemicals and fillers to their skincare products. She needed products that would heal the skin naturally without causing any harm or inflammation. And products that did not contain any chemicals that people may be sensitive to. She created Nu You Skin Care Professional Products with her son, who is a Physicist. They created a product line that is chemical-free and contains no fillers. Best of all, Gerry’s products are very active, target specific problems, and give amazing results for healthy and beautiful skin.
In 2020, Gerry’s company transformed. Nu You Skin Care became Gerry Christopher Professional Skin Care and Waxing. We continue to transform the Skin Care Industry one Client Experience at a time!
