Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA — your daily habits, in fact, have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. But depending on which product reviews you read or doctors you consult, there is a dizzying number of opinions on everything from how to moisturize to how to protect yourself from UV rays. This is where Selena Hines Chavis of Thrive Skin Studio comes in. Selena opened TSS at 1100 Eisenhower Dr Suite 15 Studio #23 inside Novo Salon Suites in July of 2020. Her passion for helping others achieve their best skin and her appreciation for every client who walks through her door has proven to be a success. Selena understands that caring for your skin is personal and her knowledge combined with her ability to build treatment plans that are progressive rather than aggressive are a few of the traits that set her apart.



Please tell us what services you provide? And your most popular service?

TSS offers customized facial treatments, chemical peels and full body waxing. Skincare services are the most popular and we’ve just added new skincare services hydrodermabrasion and nanoneedling this summer.

Please tell us what sets Thrive Skin Studio apart?

At TSS multicultural skin is the specialty. I’ve taken advanced trainings and certifications that specifically address skin of all types and colors and build treatment plans that are progressive rather than aggressive.

What product line do you use and why?

The primary skincare line I use is Skinscript Rx an amazing affordable skincare line that specializes in corrective skincare for all skin types and ethnicities. I also use and retail products from Face Reality and Glymed Plus to create a truly customized facial and treatment plan.

Please let us know what services you suggest for people during beach season?

Extended sun exposure dries out the skin depleting it of natural lubrication. My newest service, hydrodermabrasion provides diamond tipped physical exfoliation while infusing the skin with hydrating serums. It’s a perfect post sun facial. And of course don’t forget your sunscreen!

What is the best way for someone to find out more information and how they book?

You can book your appointment and most questions can be answered on my website if you have any questions please feel free to send an email to

Do you have a client success story you would like to share?

Attached is a photo of my client after just one chemical peel. The photos were taken only 2 weeks apart. Peels are my favorite way to accelerate clearing the skin.

What do you love about Savannah?

I love that Savannah is a mash up of so many things, part history, part beach town, with some contemporary art thrown in! And of course that there’s a healthy market and lots of support for local makers and small businesses.

What makes you feel most accomplished?

Opening in the middle of the pandemic and making it through this first year in business has made me feel like I could probably accomplish anything!

If you only had one night to spend in Savannah…what would you do?

I’m a big foodie so I’d probably spend the evening grabbing all my favorite bites and drinks. Brussel sprouts and charred wings from Repeal 33, cocktails at Alley Cat, a creme brûlée from Lulus Chocolate Bar and finish the night off with a sausage dog at Social Club while I dance the night away.
