Becca V. - Licensed Esthetician/Owner

Meet Becca, the founder of Levitate Beauty & Skin Studio and a licensed esthetician in New York.

Becca’s true joy as an esthetician lies in watching her clients’ confidence grow! Having personally dealt with acne and hyperpigmentation for most of her life, she is committed to creating an environment where others feel at ease in their own skin. Embracing the belief that each person’s skin is wonderfully unique, she believes there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to skincare. Instead, Becca focuses on customized facial treatments that address individual concerns, empowering clients with the knowledge needed to achieve their skin goals in a non-judgmental and relaxing environment.

Before delving into the world of esthetics, Becca earned a BA in Retail Business Management at The Fashion Institute of Technology and embarked on her career in the beauty industry at Macy’s Corporate as a Cosmetics Merchandise Planner.

In 2017, she introduced her Levitate Beauty Blog, along with engaging profiles on Instagram and TikTok. Through these platforms, Becca has been dedicated to simplifying skincare routines and encouraging others to embrace their unique beauty, imperfections and all. Witnessing the positive impact she’s made on others by sharing her personal skin journey and knowledge inspired her to transition into esthetics in 2020.

Her journey as an esthetician began with graduating with honors from the Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics in NYC, followed by valuable training at Heyday in Manhattan.

Dedicated to professional growth, Becca maintains a strong emphasis on continued education and training.
