My Story

Sonia was born in Lima, Peru and moved to the US in 1999. She has a background in oral surgery, being a dental surgical assistant for 11 years before she started her esthetics career.


The esthetics field became her interest when she was trying to find ways to avoid the sue of filler and botox, therefore delaying aging. She went to school in Ashland, VA and received both her basic esthetics license and masters license at The Institute of Advanced Medical Aesthetics.  After graduating the master programs, she decided that medical esthetics was not her approach she wanted to go but rather taking skincare into a natural approach. Sonia opened Pura Piel Skincare Studio, home based in Arlington, VA when she received her basic esthetics license until. As Pura Piel grew, so did her knowledge and skills. Throughout her growth her facials were more and more unique & for her special. 


Every visit at Pura Piel will be different, not everyone is the same and your skin is not only one skin type.
