Meet Shannon Carter-Gascon, WO3 Executive Committee, Owner, Studio Abasi

Shannon is a California State Board licensed Esthetician and product formulator. She opened her practice in Berkeley, California, in 2005. Shannon and her team have cleared the skin of thousands of clients who suffer from acne, premature aging, rosacea, and scarring.

Before becoming an Esthetician, Shannon struggled with acne and could empathize with the emotional struggles her clients were feeling. In 2007, she met Dr. James E. Fulton M.D., a dermatologist with a PhD

in biochemistry and a product formulator. Shannon took his advanced acne training classes that inspired her love of corrective skincare and product formulating. Her passion for helping people with their skin challenges is evident in the quality of her work and the accolades she has received over the years.

In 2012 she custom-formulated her first skincare product and thus started the beginning of a complete line for acne, corrective anti-aging, and preventative care.

Throughout her career, Shannon has been a mentor and trainer to many women working in the corrective skincare industry. Recently, she formed Bay Area Skin Care Company, to offer women working in the esthetics field the opportunity to become independent and create a custom brand using Shannon’s formulas.
