The Skin and Brows Team Columbia SC

Established with passion and integrity, Skin & Brows Redefined(SBR) is a medspa based in Forest Acres committed to delivering luxurious services to every person who walks through the door. Driven by holistic standards and innovative techniques, SBR is comprised of decades of experience and specializes in corrective skin treatments, permanent makeup, laser therapy, and injectables. This is complemented by a meticulous commitment to sanitization, efficient appointment scheduling, and a welcoming atmosphere to ensure clients receive the ‘beyond the treatment room' experiences they deserve.


SBR's origins trace back to when founder Ruth Armistead graduated with an MBA in International Business and Management from Kennesaw State College. After a cross-state move, Ruth spent the next 15 years managing a top-ranked salon and spa in the Midlands under Tracey Osborne's leadership. Later diverging on solo journeys as licensed estheticians, Ruth established Skin & Brows Redefined and immediately invited Tracey to join as Lead Esthetician. What began as a two-person crew quickly extended to include the support of Madison Rhett and has since grown into a 12-woman-strong team within just four years. 


Today, Skin & Brows Redefined thrives in a 3,600 sq ft facility and offers a full range of services using state-of-the-art equipment and elite skincare products such as Obagi, Skinbetter Science, Epionce, Hydrinity, Biopelle, and their latest addition, Dolce Dew. Even more, SBR has become a known hub for advanced skincare and permanent makeup training. This is done through collaborations with expert partners, including NP Amy Loper, NP Ryan Baker, and Medical Director Pete Loper.


At SBR, clients can enjoy a synergetic environment that encourages self-care and experience adorning processes that enable them to look and feel their best, and in addition, gain the peace of mind knowing that their measure of success will come from real results, never empty promises. Ultimately, SBR’s vision is that every client comes aspired and leaves feeling empowered; a signature experience that begins by connecting with a professional who genuinely values quality just as much as they do.
