About Jennifer Hanson

With over a decade of experience in the beauty and skincare industries, Jen brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Clinical Skin Therapeutics!

Jen’s career began in 1994 when she attended classes to gain her cosmetology license. She intended to take over her mother’s hair salon, but during her training, she discovered she had far more interest in the quickly advancing field of clinical skincare than hair. As a result, she decided first to attend college and went on to work in Human Resources for several years before she returned to school for skincare. Jen received her esthetics license from the prestigious AVEDA Institute Minneapolis and has been with Clinical Skin Therapeutics since 2016.

As a working mom, Jen has immense respect for the busy schedules and lives of her patients. She knows that balancing your own needs with those of your family can be a constant juggling act, so she is adamant about creating customized treatment plans for her patients that are sensitive to their lifestyles and budgets.

Jen considers your initial skincare consultation to be one of her specialties, as this information allows her to design custom-tailored skin strategies that combine the perfect services and products to help you reach your skincare goals as quickly as possible. She feels strongly about educating you on each service and product and why she is recommending them. Jen believes it is essential to set realistic and achievable expectations and is extremely honest with her input and professional recommendations. Her biggest motivator is when she sees continued improvement in your skin and when you share that you feel better about yourself!

Like the rest of the team at Clinical Skin Therapeutics, Jen is active about staying relevant and educated in her field. She has received advanced training on SkinPen® Microneedling, Sciton Laser Treatments, and DermalInfusion®. She has also attended advanced physician-dispensed skincare training on SkinMedica®, Revision®, and Obagi® product lines.

Jen loves working with the talented team of providers at Clinical Skin Therapeutics and is proud that our clinic is owned by the reputable Apple Valley Medical Center and backed by the physicians who practice here. She values the freedom the clinic offers her to deliver customized treatment plans for her patients, not “one-size-fits-all” ones that are mandated. Jen believes that patients deserve not only the best results, but also the safest ones and that working within a more medical than spa environment ensures this.

Patients commonly describe Jen as passionate, knowledgeable, results-driven and also as an educator. She loves playing a role in making someone feel better about themselves through a treatment she gives or a product regimen she recommends. Jen is inspired by making you feel good about YOU and is a strong advocate of the philosophy to “be your own kind of beautiful!”
