For beauty know-it-all Dara Levy, the creation of DERMAFLASH was a lifelong dream. Considered the ‘beauty maven’ in her circle of friends, Dara took her passion for aesthetic beauty up a notch when she opened a luxury medspa in Chicago’s Gold Coast in 2009. Rather than just turning women on to her latest beauty discoveries, she decided to bring together the best of the best treatments, products, and experts all under one gorgeous roof. In December 2015, her first beauty innovation DERMAFLASH was launched, and she has more innovations in the pipeline.
