"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!"
"Artisan does a great job of making you feel comfortable & relaxed! I love my Diamond Glows there, everyone is friendly & does a great job!"
"I received a chemical peel with Allie a few months ago and have loved the long lasting glow that’s resulted! The peel was not painful, and didn’t need any down time so it’s a great first step and introduction for people new to resurfacing skin treatments. I felt the atmosphere was bright, clean and relaxing during the peel. I look forward to trying a microneedling, BBL, and halo in the future."
"Love Artisan! Recently had a Halo treatment there. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Definitely recommend Artisan Med Spa!"
