Angela Murray, owner, recently opened About Faces Skin, LLC., Wednesday, June 2, at 9430 S. Northshore Drive., Suite 102, sharing space with Eye Candy hair salon.
Murray, a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing, provides Botox and dermo fillers services to her clients.
“It’s something people can do if they’re concerned about their appearance or the wrinkles they’ve accumulated from having lived a well life, and they just want to smooth out some areas on their face,” she said.
Murray brings to the business her nursing background.
“My primary focus, for 10 years, was in neonatal nursing,” she said.
Murray worked for several years in Alabama then at University of Tennessee Medical Center when she moved to West Knoxville. She also was a school nurse for five years.
About evolving into the skin -care field, Murray said, “I’m now in my mid-40s, and there seems to be a growing market for making us ladies look younger than we really are, so I thought I would give it a try.
“I’ve always been someone who took care of my skin and was fascinated with skincare and people always looking their best,” she added. “This is just another area that kind of promotes that and helps people feel confident.”
Murray received hands-on training classes through different companies, and the training is ongoing.
About her skills, “I have a good knowledge base … you get very personal attention because I am the only one (in the business),” she said.
In sharing space with Eye Candy, Murray said one of the salon’s co-owners has been her hair stylist for 20 years.
“She and I were talking about it one day — we’re about the same age — and she said, ‘I think that’s a great idea. Why don’t you rent space with us?’”
Murray is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.
