"The diamond glow facial does its job of out with the old and in with the new. That same evening, my skin felt radiant, hydrated, plumped up!! Karen did an amazing job. She was both professional and enjoyable. It’s definitely a non-invasive procedure... This facial is a great option for significant events when you desire that radiant glow and your inner beauty to shine ;)"
"My skin and skincare regime have improved so much since I started coming here. I have oily acne prone stressed skin. I started with Arlene and along with my facials, she picked out products that are suited for my skin type. When Arlene left, I got assigned to May and she has really pushed it further with helping me get results! She is so sweet and knowledgeable!! I highly recommend the hydra facial and derma-planning, it’s less time and faster results. Things don’t improve overnight but trust the process and trust them and you will see a difference in your skin. You have to do your part too with being consistent with your skincare regime or you are just waiting your money. Everyone is so nice in the office and they let you know of specials they have coming up."
