About Lydia

Welcome to The Beauty Nurse!  My name is Lydia Cox.  I have been a licensed Esthetician for 15 years, an RN for 30 years, and a permanent cosmetics professional for 10 years. I love what I do for a living and I love making my clients comfortable and happy.  Having my own studio for the past 8 years has afforded me the opportunity to give my clients as much time and care as I like without the restraints of a “clinical” hour or the pressure to sell product. Although I do carry a few products from some of the companies whose products I have come to love, I am aware that most of you out there have many of your own favorites and I learn a lot from my clients.

All treatments are customized to the needs and comfort levels of each client. Depending on your concerns, I will do anything from a relaxing aromatherapy facial with the beautiful Paul Scerri masques and fluid essences to a microdermabrasion treatment combined with a PCA peel.  Every one of you is different, as is every facial I give.  The studio is serene and the music is chosen to be calming and relaxing.

Permanent makeup is one of my favorite creative outlets.  Many moons ago I went to college to become an art teacher, so I think of this as my artistic outlet.  As Bill Clinton’s mom said, “Who knows what I could have done in life if I only had eyebrows.”  Brows are my special love.  If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the brows are the window frame.  I also do eyeliner and lips. Come in for a consultation, see my photos and discuss your concerns. Consultations are free of charge and last about a half an hour.  It’s a way for us to get to know each other, test for possible product sensitivities, and just see if this is the right choice for you.
