Meet Our Estheticians
At VIDA, licensed Certified Advanced Estheticians (CAE) provide many of the advanced treatments you love, like body contouring with CoolSculpting and Vanquish, and other popular treatments like Ultherapy, laser, and chemical peels. At VIDA, our CAEs work with you to determine if microdermabrasion, a light chemical peel, or another skin rejuvenation procedure is the best treatment for your goals. Our estheticians will educate you about the wide variety of treatments out there, from laser tattoo removal to cellulite reduction or body sculpting procedures. VIDA is much more than a MedSpa. VIDA is a leading clinic where experts in the field, including VIDA’s team of CAEs, are committed to bringing you the safest and latest procedures.
What is a Certified Advanced Esthetician (CAE)?
The training and skill of the professional performing your treatment are just as important as the treatment itself. Whether you’re interested in laser hair reduction or non-ablative tattoo removal, achieving the best results begins with choosing the right expert for your needs. A CAE is a high-level credential awarded to estheticians who’ve met criteria set by the Oregon Health Licensing Authority, including passing an exam written by the American Board of Laser Surgery, hundreds of hours operating a laser and ongoing continuing education.
VIDA encourages the advanced education of all of our staff to ensure that you enjoy the highest level of service and incredible results. We’re honored that you’ve chosen us to help you with your skincare needs.

Lizz Bowers, CAE
A Salem native, Lizz started her aesthetics career in 2013 as a licensed esthetician and went on to earn her CAE status in 2017. Lizz loves her work at VIDA and always strives to go the extra mile for every client. Her personal favorite treatment is CoolSculpting. This has led her to advanced training at “CoolSculpting University” in Pleasanton, California, in 2017. During her training, Lizz expanded her knowledge of the revolutionary technology, including the latest guidelines, which allows for the shortest CoolSculpting treatment times yet. The newest handpieces offer the ability to treat more areas while keeping the client’s sessions as brief as possible. In her free time, Lizz stays busy taking care of her daughter, who was born in 2016. She enjoys spending time hiking with her friends, shopping, and of course trying out new makeup techniques and cosmetic products.
Olivia Gill, CAE
Olivia graduated from the Certified Advanced Esthetician program at Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics Institute here in Oregon.

Today, Olivia specializes in laser hair reduction, CoolSculpting, and laser tattoo removal. She’s dedicated to helping every client feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin.

“Olivia is amazing. She has worked with me through the entire process. I have PCOS and had a large amount of facial hair, and she has been so friendly and knowledgeable over the past two years. I noticed a difference after just one session. I currently am hair-free and only go in about once a year for maintenance. I recommend this place to all my friends and family, and I will continue to be a part of the VIDA family. They have changed my life!”
“Rebekah is the best in the business. She is very knowledgeable and proficient in all areas.”
“The treatment was wonderful. I got in within a few days for my first appointment. The esthetician, Lizz Bowers, was knowledgeable and explained everything. I went in knowing exactly what to expect. I highly recommend Lizz for a Brazilian.”
