"I have enjoyed all my services at Essential Aesthetics. Honestly, Lori changed my life with her IPL work on a scar of mine that was huge on my face. So thankful for everyone here!"
"The staff is awesome and very kind. They always have your best interest at heart. Gracie is very good at what she does and talks to you so you understand the procedure and does not use all the technical verbiage that sounds good but you have not idea what it means. Lori has built a strong foundation and she treats her employees well. Her employees seem to really love their job and I in turn love that they do to my face."
"Loved my luxury facial here at The Million Dollar spa . Where the world of beauty meets advanced Laser technology. Skin rejuvenation is their specialty. This facility was featured and seen on Keeping up with the Kardashians. They have over one million dollars worth of Laser equipment here hence the reason they are Refered to by the Million Dollar Laser Spa. Joy provided the luxury facial along with the Gua Sha technique on my face, neck & under eye area. I don’t know if it’s just me but I swore the puffiness under my eyes were gone once she performed that under my area . So now I am doing that technique at home because it seems to be very effective. I left leaving their spa extra rejuvenated. They have a variety of other services here like fillers and more. I have been flirting with the idea of fillers under my area , they have well trained and certified nurses etc here as well I have seen a lot of their before and afters and the pics are very impressive."
