Skincare . Acne . Peels . Waxing 


I've been going to Melissa for over a year and I look forward to seeing her for many more. I came to her with acne that I had tried everything for, including seeing other estheticians, home remedies, and a boatload of products. With careful planning and routine visits my skin is now better than it has ever been and will continue to get better with Melissa's help. She is always incredibly thorough, thoughtful, and knowledgeable (and the sweetest!!). I go to her for waxing, acne treatments, and facials, and I'm always excited for my appointments. Thank you Melissa!!
