Meet Carly Santini

Hello, my name is Carly, but I am commonly known on social media as The Old Town Esthetician. I graduated from IMAj in June 2022 with dual licensing as both an esthetician and laser technician. Before attending esthetician school, I had completed two years of naturopathic medical school, where I intended on becoming a dermatologist. However, the impact of COVID-19 led me to explore other options. After considering various esthetician schools, I ultimately chose IMAj for its welcoming atmosphere and sense of community.

Although it was a scary decision to switch career paths, the love, and camaraderie I found at IMAj gave me a sense of purpose and belonging that I had not experienced in any of my previous schooling. For me, IMAj represents the importance of following your intuition and finding a supportive community to achieve success and fulfillment in your career. This school allowed me to discover my true self, paving the way for my current career path in aesthetics.

Not for nothing, my prior education has allowed me to take a holistic approach when it comes to skincare. I encourage my clients to take an active role in their skincare journey by empowering them with the knowledge and tools they need to reach their skincare goals. I have a results-driven approach and only offer services that create a difference in the skin, including facials, chemical peels, and microneedling. Additionally, I am now a Face Reality Acne Expert, using a renowned skincare brand that boasts a 90% success rate and allows me to treat acne without the use of prescription medication.

Ultimately, the education and support I received from IMAj were instrumental in my success as the Old Town Esthetician. The instructors at IMAj played a significant role in pushing me to go off on my own, and I wouldn’t have had the courage to do so without their continued support. The admissions coorindator also helped me find my own suite, making the transition to owning my own business a lot smoother. Although I started my own business right after graduation, I attribute my quick success to the excellent education and unwavering support I received at IMAj. If you’re interested in learning more about my services or would like to hear more about my experience at IMAj, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I would be more than happy to chat with you and answer any questions you may have. Thank you for taking the time to read my story!
