Lori Terwilliger

Director and Skin Care Expert

Lori began her career in the beauty industry in California over 30 years ago. She continued her aesthetic studies in Italy and when she returned to the United States, she pursued a Nursing degree and worked with hospice and wound care patients. Ultimately skin care was her passion.


She opened her skin care clinic in Maryland in 1996 and continued her studies under leading European skin experts. She also began teaching and speaking globally about emerging skin care practices, laser treatments and aesthetics. 18 years ago, Lori began to research laser technologies to achieve optimal results for anti-aging and to successfully treat different types of skin conditions for her patients. She now is sought out by physicians and skin care experts to consult, speak and teach professional practices throughout the world. In 2012, she moved her successful skin care clinic to Northern Virginia and is expanding to a full medical spa.


Lori has assembled a team of professional experts to provide safe, effective, and innovative treatments and therapies. The team has worked for several years in their fields of expertise and enjoys sharing the knowledge and skills they have acquired as well as learning new treatment options together in this rapidly changing field. Lori is certified on N-lite, Aura, Candella, Endymed, Infini, Cold Laser, Fraxel, Clearlift, IPL, Radio frequency and Vbeam laser technologies.
