Certified Esthetician

My name is Dawn Apple-Nelson, and I’ve been an esthetician in Wilmington for sixteen years. My passion lies in helping my clients heal their skin organically, feel beautiful from the inside-out, and be confident!

My journey started when I closed a retail business, I owned for three years in the Cotton Exchange. I started school the following week at Cape Fear Community College. This is where I received my Esthetic licenses and became officially certified to work as an esthetician.

After becoming certified, I moved to the Outer Banks to work at Spa at Corolla. It was during the summer, their busiest season, so I truly dived right in! It was incredible, because in a short amount of time, I learned exponentially more than I would in a slower-paced clinic. Upon returning to Wilmington, I began working with Joseph Zell and Co., and spent over a decade there honing and perfecting my craft. It was during my time there that I became certified in Xtreme Eyelashes Extensions. Since then, they have been my favorite service! It is a joy seeing the smiles and confidence just soar in my clients.

I have built a consistent clientele, made lifelong friends, and created a name for myself working in holistic beauty.

Now, being part of the wonderful team at Medspa Cambridge, I could not be happier! To this day, I continually attend conferences and seminars, so I can educate both myself and my clients on how to invest in the optimal YOU, inside and out!

My favorite product lines are Eminence Organic Skincare, Si Jin Bao Topical Chinese Herbs, and Osmosis Skincare. Many times when I do a facial; I often will use all three products in a facial as well micro-currents and LED light therapy to banish dead skin cells and renew your skin’s elasticity and glow.

When using the right products and methods, you can rejuvenate your complexion from the inside-out. By truly healing you, rather than simply slathering facial products that have nothing but basic placebo effects, I can truly bring out YOUR best skin! Come in today and find out how!
