Management Team

Jenny Abraham founded Face to Face in 2011 in Austin, TX, and remains the CEO to this day.

She suffered from severe cystic acne and could not find a solution to her problem. When she found an esthetician that started to make her skin look better, she decided to have her own spa. As a wound care nurse, she was fascinated with the science behind quality facial products and ingredients, as well as evidence-based practice standards for promoting skin health.
