  • Mechelle Speelhoffer, LE

    Licensed Aesthetician

    Mechelle has been licensed in Cosmetology since the mid-80s. In 2006 she made the jump into Esthetics by taking her first esthetics position at a local salon. When Mechelle was in her 20s she suffered from acne that left her with deep acne scars. Thanks to lasers and proper skin care, she was able to get the acne under control. Mechelle states this literally changed her life and has made her very empathetic when working one on one with patients.

    Although she started out with doing basic facials, waxing, massage and pedicures, it didn’t take long before she transitioned into the world of aesthetic lasers. She has worked in offices of Dermatology, Plastic Surgery and even ran her own Med Spa for 3 years. Mechelle says the most rewarding aspect of her position is that she is able to achieve real results for clients that help them to look better and feel better about themselves and their appearance.

    Mechelle is so happy to have joined Premier Spa and Laser Center where she says she is working with the “team” she has always been searching for! In her spare time, she is a very artsy person, and is very involved in handmade Pottery and the art of Tie Dye. She also enjoys exploring Flea Markets for eclectic decorating items.

  • Vittoria Mortarotti, LE

    Licensed Aesthetician

    Vittoria graduated from Aveda Institute Birmingham in 2017 and started her aesthetic journey. When she was in high school, she struggled with hormonal acne and has been interested in skincare ever since. She started working in the dermatology setting shortly after graduation, where she has had many opportunities to watch aesthetic procedures. This has helped her get more of an understanding of different skin conditions and treatments.

    One of her favorite things about aesthetics is helping clients figure out their perfect at-home regimen. She loves when people come back and saying they love their products! She is striving to become a successful Aesthetician with her own skincare blog.

    In her free time, Vittoria enjoys gardening and hanging out with her dog Kiba. She has just started experimenting with houseplants, but would love to start growing her own fruits and veggies!
