Andrew Stanleick (pictured) is stepping down as President, CEO of BeautyHealth Company, the owner of beauty treatment brand Hydrafacial.

Stanleick will exit his position and relinquish his board seat on 19 November after 22 months at the helm.

He will remain in an advisory role at the company until the end of the year.

During his reign, Stanleick raised Hydrafacial’s presence globally within the professional beauty and aesthetic markets. 

He also forged company partnerships with big-name brands, such as Dior, Dr. Dennis Gross and Jennifer Lopez.

Stanleick has not given a reason for his departure. 

“It has been an honour to lead BeautyHealth, and I would like to thank [Board Chair] Brent Saunders and the Board for the opportunity,” said Stanleick. 

“I leave inspired by the passion of our teams, providers and consumers, and the brand-forward vision that Hydrafacial has set out. 

“I believe deeply in the future opportunity of the professional beauty and aesthetics sector.

“And I remain an ardent supporter of BeautyHealth.”

Saunders thanked Stanleick for being “a passionate advocate” for the company. 

“Especially adding to its visibility within the broader beauty and aesthetics industries through innovative partnerships and thought leadership,” he said.

Current BeautyHealth Director and Board Member Marla Beck will step in as Interim CEO while the company searches for a new successor. 

Beck is founder and the former CEO of Bluemercury – an omnichannel beauty and spa retailer.

She led the company from inception in 1999 to a strategic sale to US department store Macy’s in 2015.

Beck then continued to lead it successfully as an independent business unit of Macy’s until 2021. 

“Marla is a beauty industry veteran and trusted voice on the BeautyHealth Board,” commented Saunders. 

“Her deep entrepreneurial leadership experience and connection to the category will serve as a steadying force with the team while the Board completes its search for a new CEO.”

Beck added: “I look forward to working with our passionate team and dedicated community of providers to strengthen Hydrafacial’s position as a category creator.

“And increase value for shareholders.”

BeautyHealth has gone from strength to strength this year.

The company reported a 13% increase in Q2 sales due to demand for Hydrafacial treatments.

It recently opened a month-long Hydrafacial pop-up at luxury London department store Harrods too.  

The company’s net revenue for Q3 is also up 10% year over year, with a particularly strong performance in Asia-Pacific.

However, it did also report lower-than-expected US revenue and US$63.1m in restructuring charges related to the upgrades of early generation Syndeo Hydrafacial devices.
