Loren Armstrong

Advanced Clinical Aesthetician, Chicago Location. Certified in Oncology and Organic Facials / Certified Phlebotomist


Loren has always worked in some form of healthcare, from working the front desk in the Hematology and Oncology outpatient clinic at the University of Chicago Medical Center to doing research in the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University performing statistical analyses for their Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Molecular Medicine division.  It was in dealing with her own skin, and learning the intricacies of how to manage her skin care that she fell in love with aesthetics and decided to change her career path. Upon the end of her contract as an analyst, Loren decided to attend G Skin & Beauty Institute to study esthetics so that she could help others achieve their healthiest skin. She is results oriented, yet still offers that lavish spa treatment to give her clients enjoyment and increased confidence. She is an advocate for staying up to date with the latest ingredients, techniques and technologies and has continued her education in services such as: organic facials, RF Microneedling, advanced acne and anti-aging treatments, as well as, treatments for oncology patients.

Loren shares her love of skincare and delights in helping her clients achieve optimal results.  She is certified in HydraFacial, Sylfirm X Rf Microneedling, Emsella for incontinence, Organic treatments, Oncology treatments and a broad range of chemical peels.


Loren is active in her church and regularly volunteers in her community by helping plant community gardens, providing free tutoring and spending time reading at senior citizen homes.  She is passionate about expanding her knowledge and skill-set and participates in educational events regularly. Loren is kind and generous and her laugh is infectious.  She is a member of the Association of Holistic Skin Care Practitioners, Oncology Spa Solutions and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
