Lidia Nistor-Reteneller founded Skin IQ in August of 2006 with a mission to exceed client expectations through customized skincare using the best products and the most effective advanced therapies. This approach—that every client’s set of needs and issues is unique and deserves a personalized treatment—is the hallmark of her brand.
Lidia’s path to entrepreneurship started just after college graduation in Bucharest, Romania in 1995. Upon completing the requirements for a Physician’s Assistant degree, she accepted a position with the Ritz-Carlton Hotels in Dubai. Selected for the luxury hotel’s corporate management training program, she relocated to Atlanta (then the Ritz-Carlton headquarters) in 2000.
It was on a consultation for her wedding that Lidia discovered a new vocational passion: medical skincare. Lidia graduated in 2002 from the International School of Esthetics, which led to an apprenticeship with the prominent Dr. Jean Chapman. Lidia became a lead aesthetician with Ageless Remedies in Buckhead, designing customized skin care programs for clients. In 2006, she launched her by-appointment-only medspa, SkinIQ, in Buckhead’s Cates Center with Dr. Jean Chapman serving as Medical Director.
The new west Buckhead location expands on her medspa offerings with a retail storefront making available the most progressive and trusted skincare treatments and products in a friendly, pressure-free environment. Lidia lives in Atlanta with her husband, John, and their two sons.
