Jessica Cooley is a Licensed Esthetician & Licensed Esthetics Instructor in Columbia SC. She holds multiple advanced certifications in the medical esthetics world to include microblading, microneedling, and dermaplaning and medical grade chemical peels. Jessica started her journey as a military spouse & mom of 2 and never had the chance to follow her passion until the Cooley family was able to move to Prosperity, South Carolina. 

Jessica started her journey into Oncology Esthetics by enrolling in esthetics school to gain the basics. Once licensed she gained multiple advanced modality certifications. All of this education pushed Jessica to want more. Her adventure kept taking her down roads that added to her knowledge but just didn't satisfy her need to know more about cancer and how she could help. Once out of advanced esthetics school she enrolled in an oncology esthetics class that took her to Atlanta GA. There she learned so much more than just skin and its processes when going through such a horrible ordeal. Jessica learned that we as Estheticians, can help form a bond with people as a whole. The art of touch is something that can help calm the mind, body, and spirit along with the skin. This class had hit home for Jessica, as her Dad had been diagnosed with stage IV Melanoma back in 2016 and her Grandmother had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2018.

My name is Alyzza, like Alisa, but with Z’s. I am a native San Diegan, running my very first local business. I am a professional esthetician and Make-Up Designory (MUD) certified.

In September 2015, I got sugar certified. It took me about 2 months to learn the sugar technique and about a year to become efficient in my craft. Once I had my technique down I knew this was my true passion.

In April 2018, I opened up Beau Sucré. Beau Sucré means Beautiful Sugar. Sincethen, it has become one of the most popular spots in San Diego, with guaranteed professional quality. I strive to educate my clients about sugaring and its incredible benefits, all while creating a fun, relaxed, and comfortable environment. There is nothing more important to me than my client's satisfaction, so being thorough is like second nature.
