Kathy Taranto Was MINT for the Aesthetics Business!

We don’t just offer med spa services; we teach them!

Over a span of just two decades, AesthetiCare has grown to become one of the country’s most successful stand-alone med spas, achieving milestones like consistent double-digit growth.

It’s always been AesthetiCare’s mission to provide the best possible care for our clients, which is why we’re one of the only medical spas nationwide to utilize an advisory board of highly certified and world-renowned medical professionals.

Our Medical Advisory Board is a valuable feature that enables us to explore exciting new treatments and enhance the overall care of our clients.

But our Medical Advisory Board isn’t the only way we ensure the best possible client care…

With over 45 years of combined experience, Kathy and Matt Taranto are the dynamic duo of the aesthetics business – leading the market in cutting-edge technology, cosmetic treatments, customer service and even clinical training.

That’s right, training!

Shortly after opening AesthetiCare MedSpa in 2001, Matt and Kathy Taranto created MINT Aesthetics in 2005 – a national training center offering aesthetics training and business consulting to medical spas worldwide, and guess what?

It’s all under the same roof!

In fact, many of the same providers who treat your skin and body every day at AesthetiCare are also expert trainers at MINT!

Keep reading to learn more about how MINT Aesthetics + AesthetiCare work hand in hand to consistently provide the best possible client care in the industry.

But before learning about MINT, we must first learn about its leader – Kathy Taranto. And what better way to do that than through some rapid-fire questions!

Kathy Taranto + MINT Aesthetics = Industry Authority

If Kathy Taranto had a bumper sticker, it would most likely read “Lasers for Life” to express her immense passion for lasers and skin.

Kathy’s supreme knowledge of aesthetics stems from her 15+ years of working in virtually all positions within the industry, where the seeds of her hard work have grown into numerous achievements, including the ScitonClinical Excellence Award, which we’ll discuss a bit later.

So, where did Kathy’s love for skin begin? Back in 2000, when she started working with a French cosmeceutical company managing and marketing products throughout the Southwest.

From there, it was instant kismet!

A mere seven years later, when the industry shifted from cosmeceuticals to medical cosmetics, so did Kathy! For a glimpse into the rest of Kathy’s journey that took her from laser trainer to training the next generation of laser aestheticians, check out her bio!

Kathy has worked with technologies from top cosmetic companies like BTL and Lutronics and regularly speaks for The American Med Spa Association, further establishing her as a leading authority in the aesthetics industry.

In addition to her many achievements, Kathy recently received the Sciton Clinical Excellence Award in recognition of all her contributions throughout the years and for being a valued partner of Sciton.

What Is MINT Aesthetics?

In order to offer MINT clients the best training and consulting, we needed to first be successful ourselves in owning and operating a medical aesthetic clinic. 

Since 2001, we have been doing exactly that with AesthetiCare MedSpa, and a key takeaway we immediately discovered was the value of having a highly skilled and educated team.

When we found out that most medical spa consultants in the aesthetic industry had little knowledge of how to run a successful business based on medical aesthetics, we were inspired to solve this problem!

Expensive equipment and a flashy sign aren’t enough to succeed in the competitive market known as medical aesthetics. But with some high-quality business consulting and in-depth clinical training for those entering the aesthetics business or growing their current one, success is possible. MINT was created to provide that.

Take control of learning at your own pace with MINT Aesthetics, where you’ll find business consulting in addition to online and in-person training to help you meet your goals.

When we say you’re treated by the best, we mean it!

Backed by more than 229 years of combined staff experience, our expert trainers are also well versed in marketing, finance, management – the whole nine yards!

Training MINT for Success

In addition to revolutionizing modern aesthetics with the creation of MINT, Matt and Kathy Taranto have spoken at an average of 40 aesthetic meetings throughout the country in previous years.

Known as one of the country’s top authorities on non-surgical aesthetics, Matt and Kathy are passionate about providing aesthetic education to the masses and continuing to lead the industry with the best customer service and highest quality of client care in the business!

Krissy is thorough and easy to talk to. She is confident in her skills and put me at ease.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

Jennifer explained everything in details and was very diligent in making sure that the procedure and follow up went well

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works. And I’m still noticing differences as my skin continues to heal.
