Kristy Harris

CMLT Aesthetician

Kristy Harris, Shapiro Plastic Surgery

I am a licensed Aesthetician, Certified Medical Laser Technician and Licensed Massage Therapist. I began my career in medical aesthetics in 2000 and in 2007 joined Dr. Shapiro’s prestigious team at the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic™. I enjoy all aspects of the industry but have become extremely fond of the treatment and results you get from providing the most up to date laser techniques. Throughout my time as an Aesthetician I have gained extensive experience and training with energy based treatments including IPL, Radio-Frequency, Ultherapy, and fractional laser resurfacing.

I am passionate about continuing my education in the industry to be able to provide my clientele with the upmost safety and most current and effective treatments available. I have attended dozens of advanced training programs, courses and workshops throughout my career to stay up to date with laseography, laser safety, product knowledge and advances in nonsurgical procedures. Some of my most proud accomplishments including completion of the “Laser Treatments of Color” course provided by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, being recognized as a member of the Aesthetics Leadership Community by Obagi in 2014 and being awarded a “Game Changing Finalist” in the nationwide Skin Games competition in 2016. I most recently became approved by the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency to supervise Laser & IPL treatments as an Aesthetic Advisor.

In my time away from the office I enjoy educating the public about skincare through my online blog and as a frequent guest speaker for local TV news segments. I am so passionate about what I do and am dedicated to understanding the individual needs of my clients and providing personal and customized treatments. There is no industry I would rather be a part of and am so grateful to share my skills in such a great work environment with such a talented team.
