Kristine Alhorn, LME and Clinical Manager
When it comes to your skin, experience matters. After several years of working in healthcare, including her time as a physical therapist, Kristine decided to pursue her passion for aesthetics. Kristine became a licensed medical aesthetician in 2011, and she loves to share her expertise with her patients. She is highly skilled in aesthetic treatments such as chemical peels, and patients always appreciate her savvy when it comes to choosing the right skin care products and ingredients.
In addition to being an aesthetician, Kristine is also our patient care/clinical manager, and certified aesthetic consultant. She has been working with Dr. Makow since 2010, and Kristine assists her in many treatments, including laser resurfacing, microneedling and Bellafill. Kristine is also a SculpSure technician, and she has completed advanced training and certifications in Ultherapy and ThermiVa.
She will ensure that you have an exceptional experience at Renew Laser Clinic.
When she’s not working, Kristine goes on as many adventures as she can with her daughter. These include anything from a pampering girl’s day out to exploring the beaches of Hawaii. They fit in as much fun as possible between work and her daughter’s honors level studies!
