Who we are
Founded by friends Jamie and Taylor, Pella Skin Apothecary sits on Main Street in downtown of quaint and charming Pella, IA. - home to 10,000 residents, Central College and the Tulip Festival.
While working together at Pella Regional Health Center, the two became fast friends over their shared interest in the medical field and aesthetics. They began studying the art of aesthetics, sharing their knowledge with each other and eventually, a dream.
Having similar values, beliefs, faith, work ethic and humor (super important), they came to the realization, together they could make it work.
They went directly to working honing thier craft attending Revive Aesthetics Academy to study injectables and fillers and started hosting parties. The success of the parties led to the establishment 700 Main Street Suit #105.
We continue to work together at the clinic four days a week while opening the shop on Friday. As our story continues to grow, we hope to share our time with you and help you achieve your goals.
