We had the good fortune of connecting with Bryan Ostro and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bryan, how do you think about risk?
Taking risks isn’t easy, especially for someone like me! The biggest risk I’ve taken was starting Pure Skin Medspa and it’s played a huge role in my life. I was looking for my next move after Laser & Aesthetics school. I had always wanted to start my own Medspa, but I had never started or owned a business of my own…I was apprehensive to say the least! In school, my instructors and mentors always gave students the advice to work for a medspa first before we tried to open our own business because there is a lot involved in starting a Medical Spa business. I ignored their advice and took the risk – thus, Pure Skin Medspa was born! Taking this risk has changed my life in the best way possible. I get to live out my dream every single day where I get to help my patients feel more confident and beautiful in their skin with a variety of different treatments.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Starting Pure Skin Medspa was a dream come true for me. I knew from the moment I opened, we were going to be more than just services like Hydrafacials, Laser Hair Removal, and PhotoFacials. I believe a big part of my success and what sets us apart is that I really care about my Patients and their skin, and I have made it my mission to do the very best I can to achieve the results they are looking for and to prevent aging as much as possible. I want to make a difference in people’s lives by helping them feel more confident and beautiful in their appearance, and it’s gratifying when my patients tell me how much happier they are when they feel good about how they look. Starting Pure Skin about 6 weeks prior to COVID, it has been a learning experience and I feel that I am a stronger business owner as a result. Pure Skin Medspa is my passion and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Arizona has so many really awesome places to check out! We’d start our day with coffee (of course!) at Lux Central before having brunch at Maple & Ash . Next, we’d hike Camelback Mountain or take a stroll through the shops in Old Town Scottsdale. Dinner would be at Cibo in Downtown Phx for the hands-down best GF pizza… or Dominick’s Steakhouse if we’re feeling fancy. For day trips, Sedona is always a beautiful and relaxing place to visit and the Grand Canyon is a must-see.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am grateful for the success I have had and where I am today. I could never have made it here without the support, love, and encouragement from the wonderful people around me. I dedicate this Shoutout to my partner, Ben, who’s helped guide me though starting our business; my medical director Dr. Alexander Villares and the AV Cosmetic Surgery Team, and my friends & family who have been unwavering in their support as I pursued my dreams of opening Pure Skin MedSpa!
