Services & Fees

Peels To The People originated in 2009 in Portland, OR. After many years of working with Portland's leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons, Susan Thompson started her own clinical skincare practice, delivering treatments directly to clients in their homes or if they preferred, in her home-based studio in Portland.

In 2013 Susan and her family moved to St. George, Utah where she established a new skincare practice to serve clients in sunny southern Utah. After commuting back and forth to Portland, Oregon to see her well-established clientele there, Susan closed her Northwest location in 2016 to better concentrate on St. George. Susan is the first esthetician to introduce Epionce skincare products to the St. George area.

Susan has been an esthetician since 1998 and holds licenses in both Oregon and Utah. She graduated from the Advanced Skin Care Training Institute in San Francisco and holds advanced certificates from the Dr. Vodder School of Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Susan has guest lectured the Oregon Association of Nurse Practitioners, mentored and taught esthetic students, and trained physicians and their staff on using chemical peels. Susan continues learning by attending medical and skincare conferences and trade shows.

Prior to her career in esthetics, Susan was a massage therapist and for twenty-five years a librarian and archivist for institutions such as the Oregon Historical Society, Purdue University and CalTech. She has a BA from the University of Southern California and a Masters in Library Science from the University of Oregon.

In 2016 Susan became a Hand and Foot Instructor in the MELT Method. In addition to teaching classes, Susan incorporates the Method into her facials for their relaxing and beneficial anti-aging effects.
