Sometimes a personal search can plant the seed for a new venture. That’s what happened to Carmen Meherg, owner of two Smart Skin Med Spas in Birmingham, AL. After a medical issue, Carmen suffered from unexplained cystic acne. She searched high and low for a solution to her personal problem—doing research, talking to experts and trying product after product.
“Nothing really helped,” says Carmen. “I didn’t want to cover it up, I wanted to fix it.” Her search eventually led to the opening of her own spa. With a business fueled by happy clients, Smart Skin Med Spa expanded into a larger space as well as opening a second location 2 years ago.
Her daughter, Lacey Edwards, basically grew up in the business and built upon her mother’s success by helping introduce new programs, products, and treatments to the Smart Skin suite of services. “Smart Skin is a family legacy and I enjoy working with my mother so much,” says Lacey. “I have three children and I can totally envision them working alongside me one day.” Smart Skin continues to thrive 20 years later!
Smart Skin Med Spa only uses state of the art equipment that has been tested and meets all industry standards. Viora is part of the success story. The Smart Skin staff loves that the powerful intense pulsed light technology is customized with interchangeable filters to tackle every client’s personal skin care needs.
“Mothers (and grandmothers) may use it for sun damage or rosacea while their daughters may want help with acne,” says Lacey. “It also has a preventive quality,” notes Carmen, “so starting early, even in your twenties, can help you look your best for a long time.” It’s a win-win for all generations.
