"I had BBL therapy this morning. What a great experience! Dr Powell and the entire team were fantastic. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. I was very comfortable during the procedure, and was able to go to work as soon as we were done. I will be going back for sure! I highly recommend Artisan and Dr Powell."
"The space is beautiful and my facial was unbelievably relaxing. Anna did a really fantastic job teaching me all about the different products she used during my facial. She customized treatment specifically for my skin and recommended product for me to use at home. I am loving the way my skin feels!"
"I went to Artisan with concerns about submental fat and Megan Sage provided me with a variety of treatment options. She noticed that I have very strong masseter (jaw) muscles from years of teeth grinding and clenching, resulting in a rounder facial appearance.This made me a good candidate for Botox, so I decided to give it a try. After two weeks, I already notice that I don’t clench my jaw as frequently and don’t wake up with headaches from teeth grinding. With a few more rounds of Botox, I hope to see the slimming effects!"
"Taking care of your skin has never been easier or more fun! When you walk into the clinic you immediately know that the staff are not only there to work, but also believe in the products and procedures that are done in the spa.I now am a true believer in taking care of my skin and being pampered is a plus with these girls."
"Allie did my lips and I was nervous about switching places from a previous place of 3 years…. And I finally got what I expected and the look I desired!! Answered the questions I had and listened to what I was looking for in my filler! Glad I took a leap and I’ll be returning!"
