Erica Suppa is the owner of Fresh Faced Skin Care, an advanced skin care clinic with 2 locations: Historic New Castle, Delaware and Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Erica opened Fresh Faced Skin Care because she wanted to offer a specialized business that only did facial treatments. “I’ve gone to spas and salons to get facial treatments where I felt intimidated or felt like just a number.” The results were mediocre at best. I’ve also been on the opposite side, where I am working at a salon or spa in which the conditions were deplorable and the treatments were the same on every client that walked through the door.”
Erica used her past experiences with facials as a model of what she didn’t want. “Fresh Faced Skin Care was born out of what I wanted as a facial customer. I wanted personal attention and real results. These services cost money and I respect that and what people work hard for. My mission is to provide personalized, therapeutic skin care treatments that achieve extraordinary results clients have been searching for.”

Experience in the healthcare industry
Erica has more than a decade of experience in the healthcare industry as an esthetician, skin care expert and research scientist. Most recently, Erica was involved in a groundbreaking study at the University of Pennsylvania involving the treatment of leukemia through gene transfer therapy. Patients involved in the study receive genetically engineered versions of their own T cells. The procedure turns the body’s own immune cells into weapons against cancerous tumors. Erica is 1 of 2 skin care professionals in the state of Delaware certified as an Oncology Esthetician and has created treatment protocols for individuals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
“My scientific knowledge of skin biology and cosmetic chemistry allows me to discover the root cause of client skin care concerns. This, in turn, produces effective results for my clients who have struggled with these issues and received no resolution from other skin care professionals, including dermatologists.”
Experimented with my makeup
In 2013, Erica created her own line of natural mineral makeup products, Fresh Faced by Erica. After seeing many clients with skin issues due to their makeup, Erica felt compelled to specifically design a foundation makeup that did not cause any problems to the skin. “Other makeup lines congest or irritate the skin. I wanted to create something in which I knew the ingredients would not interfere with the results I was giving my clients in the treatment room.”
Erica tested several of her formulations on herself until it was what she wanted. “I personally experimented with my makeup by sleeping with it on and working out with it on. It did not change color, make me itch, or cause me to break out.”
Erica’s clients are enjoying the opportunity to experience a well-rounded skin care approach with professional skin care products and her custom formulated natural makeup. “I am so grateful to be able to do what I love for a living and to also help people in return. I have such great clients that leave lovely reviews about my work. I keep saying that I will write a book of inspiring client quotes one of these days. I actually write them down in a journal and am so blessed to have so many.”
