I’ve never been one for facials but since starting with Melissa, I get lots of compliments on my skin, I’m 71. She is the best and so knowledgeable! I strongly recommend her if you want beautiful skin!

Fabulous Claudia

Claudia is not only very professional but is so kind and gentle giving various treatments. I love her recommendations for new products. Thank you

Knowledgeable and Experienced!

Claudia has been my aesthetician for 5.5 years. She always listens to my concerns and proceeds with a facial that will address my needs. Other spas have "package facials" and that is what you get, regardless of what you need. Claudia tailors the process to me! She's knowledgeable and professional! I won't go anywhere else!

Testimonial For Claudia

I have visited Claudia on & off for over 12 years or so, I recently made a visit and Claudia as usual was the most pleasant and efficient Aesthetician suggesting that I try Dermablading for the first time. I was extremely pleased with the process and the results...Will be returning on a regular basis. Thank you Claudia, Carolyn Vairo
