American Spa: How many years have you been involved in the spa and hospitality industry?
Victoria Collotta
I have been in the spa industry for 17 years. I’ve held a number of positions throughout my career, from esthetician to spa owner, and I’m currently the vice president of retail marketing and education for Silk Therapeutics, a clinical-grade clean skincare brand.

AS: What was the path that led you into the spa industry?
VC: I’ve been fascinated by everything beauty-related from a very young age. As a teen, I was given a gift certificate to have my first facial, and I thought it was the best thing ever. I wanted to be the person behind the table!

AS: What are the most challenging and rewarding parts of being in the spa industry?
VCMy biggest challenge is finding enough hours in the day! But, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping clients to see a real difference in their skin and leave feeling great. 

AS: Where do you think the industry is heading? 
VC: I think the industry is gravitating toward skincare that’s less invasive yet still effective. Most people lead fast-paced lives with busy schedules and don’t have a ton of time for treatments. They’re looking for high-quality products that can be incorporated into their home routine while still providing great results.

AS: What’s your favorite skincare ingredient?
VCLiquid Silk. It’s a versatile clean ingredient, helping to rejuvenate skin while taking the place of harsh preservatives and fillers—the best of both worlds! 

AS: If you could work in any other profession in the world, what would you be?
VCI’d probably be an interior decorator. I love creating an aesthetically pleasing space! 

AS: What’s your go-to spa treatment? 
VCYou can’t go wrong with a classic facial. Ingredient-wise, I switch it up based on what I feel my skin needs that day.

AS: What’s the best advice you’ve received? 
VC: “Don’t let fear stop you.” 

AS: How do you like to spend your time away from work?
VC: Yoga, shopping, golf, and most of all, enjoying time with family and friends.

AS: What are your three greatest priorities in life?
VC: Family, learning and doing.
