Beth Casse

Licensed Medical Aesthetician/ Founder

Beth Casse is a Licensed Medical Aesthetician and sought-after Skin Care expert. She began her career in 2004 working with plastic surgeons on post-laser/wound care. After realizing that there is a missing link between reconstructive laser treatments and pampering facials, she began to envision a place where she could fill this gap and create customized facial treatments that are both indulgent and show proven results. She opened BEYOND SKIN OCALA  in 2015 with a clear vision of a concierge-style treatment center. 

Beth strongly believes that youthful and radiant skin is a collaborative effort. She and her highly trained staff, use powerful anti-aging technologies, techniques, and innovative products to create results-oriented treatments that are tailored specifically for each client in a setting that soothes beyond the surface. You will leave looking and feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to conquer whatever lies ahead.
