About Us

Sabina Khan Benavides, Owner; Skin Care Specialist
Sabina created Chrysalis in 1999 with the goal of providing personalized service and individualized, results-oriented skincare to each and every client. Sabina chose the name Chrysalis for her Skin and Body Rejuvenation Center since it is the wondrous vehicle of nature from which a butterfly emerges. Her vision for Chrysalis is that the experience for those who visit will be indicative of such a transformation.
