Meet the Founder

Nina Milano, founder of La Thérapie SPA AT PRESTON, moved to the United States from Croatia in 1993. She first lived in New York where she became a Licensed Aesthetician after attending the nationally recognized Christine Valmey School of Aesthetics and also the renowned Wilfred Academy of Cosmetology. She practiced aesthetics in New York for few years prior to moving to the Triangle in 1998.
Nina further honed her expertise in skin care working as a Licensed Aesthetician in physician office medical spas. She believes that skin care is a part of overall health care and that it is critical to use the very best skin care products and techniques in caring for the skin.

In 2002, Nina opened La Thérapie SPA AT PRESTON with a very small staff and limited space. As her reputation grew, she realized that expansion was necessary. In January 2004, she opened her current facility, tripling the size of the spa to 5,000 square feet and increasing the staff to 20. La Thérapie SPA AT PRESTON has thrived due in large part to Nina’s constant research into new products, treatments and services. Nina travels annually to Europe where spa trends normally originate. European treatments, especially in the area of skin care, use cutting edge technology and are generally very holistic in their approach.

Nina incorporates these advances in the treatment protocols and products used by the technicians at La Thérapie. Nina is both an owner and aesthetician, always in demand to a loyal group of clients who have enjoyed her services and benefited from her superior knowledge of skin care for many years.

La Thérapie SPA AT PRESTON, under Nina’s guidance, has become the premier day spa in Cary, offering the most advanced treatments and services influenced by European trends. Nina, is committed to always providing the most advanced products and services to all clients of La Thérapie while educating them on the importance of caring for their skin.
