Marissa Balken



Marissa Balken, owner of Bliss by Marissa LLC, became a licensed Aesthetician after graduating from the National Aesthetics Institute of Scottsdale. Balken thrives in skin transformation, and feels fortunate to be working alongside other motivated professionals who share her passion for aesthetics. After receiving her certificate as a laser technician, her passions and dreams became realized when she opened her own independent medical skincare boutique inside the beautiful Leiden Mitchell Salon and Spa.

Committed to continued growth and learning, Balken accepted the opportunity to become the President of the Arizona Aesthetics Association. She attributes much of her aesthetic vision and success to her association with AzAA where she holds monthly educational and resource meetings while marketing and connecting with industry professionals. To ensure she stays abreast of current market trends and that her clients receive the latest and greatest in available treatments, Balken frequently attends advanced workshops, webinars and conventions and networks as a member of the National Association of Professional Women.

Balken is inspired by traveling, outdoor adventures, yoga, the food network, spending time with the love of her life and her best friends. Most importantly she is inspired to help others to look and feel their best making her a chosen member of the Forever Younger “Dream Team,” a select panel of experts who represent a wide range of knowledge in aesthetics.
