CLARA was founded by Dr. Rebecca Bialas and Dr. Joanna Hooten, both board-certified dermatologists with the highest level of knowledge about skin health. We believe in the importance of dermatologist-led treatment plans, and your skin care plan will always be overseen by a dermatologist at CLARA. We also have an incredible team of providers, trained in CLARA’s consistent approach to skin care, that work with us to deliver the excellent experience you’ve come to expect from CLARA.
