Iris Sindhoj

I was born in Prussia, which used to belong to Germany before the WW II. Part of that area is now Polish and part is Russian. My family fled Prussia at the end of the war and relocated in Hannover, where my father was from and where he was quickly employed at the State Opera.

I grew up with “Prussian” values, which really are no different then our Christian values right here. Learn the most you can, always do the best job you can, be humble, polite and value the next person like yourself.

I received my esthetic education in Baltimore, Maryland at the prestigious Von Lee International School of Aesthetics, Inc. in March 1979 and eventually made my paramedical license thru Dr.Wittakers Acne Institute in 1989. This training pertains precisely to acne treatments and aging skin.

Skin Care by Iris opened its doors here in Tupelo February 1989. Iris is the first certified paramedical aesthetician in all of Southern United States.

Our motto at Skin Care by Iris is always: “What can we do for YOU? What is in YOUR best interest.” YOU the customer are the most valued person here and we try our very best to treat YOU as the special person YOU are.
