Leah Fretwell, Deep Blue Med Spa Director
If there is anyone who understands the business of beauty, it is Deep Blue Med Spa Director Leah Fretwell.
Beginning her career as a student intern with Elizabeth Arden, Leah grew to serve as General Manager of the company’s flagship Red Door Salon on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. At the time, this was not only the busiest day spa in New York City, but one of the largest in the nation. She was also responsible for helping to open several resort and free standing spas throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut before eventually taking on the management role of multiple Long Island locations. Next, as Vice President of Operations, Leah drove the company’s key initiatives while providing direction and daily management to nine locations in multiple states.
Since joining Deep Blue Med Spa over a decade ago, Leah’s now 30 years of expertise and tenacity have helped to transform the once budding Deep Blue brand into one of the most recognized names in the industry. Under her leadership Deep Blue has been nationally honored by the makers of multiple modalities including Coolsculpting and Ultherapy, as well as ranked in the top 1% of Botox providers. Deep Blue has expanded to include multiple locations, and its team of experts have been featured by a variety of publications including Cosmopolitan, InStyle, InTouch, Pop Sugar, and Real Simple.
Overseen by the largest, longest-running plastic surgery practice in the United States, Deep Blue Med Spa is celebrated for its extensive menu of clinically proven treatment options, profitable retail business (both in store and online), and most recently, its signature scent developed exclusively for all spa locations.
Today, Leah oversees Deep Blue Med Spas in Babylon, East Hills, Garden City, Manhattan, and Whitestone. Each member of her ever-growing clinical team is licensed, highly trained, and extensively experienced. In addition, two of her expert injectors have been selected by aesthetic product manufacturers to train other practices throughout the country. Deep Blue continues to be one of the first practices in the nation to offer new aesthetic products as they are released and maintains a reputation for excellence in all that it does.
Leah has a BA in Cosmetic Marketing & Management from the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising in New York, NY and an AAS from Iona College in New Rochelle, NY. She is a member of both the Cosmetic Executive Woman Organization and the American Med Spa Association.
