Kara was so amazing! She made me feel comfortable and at ease. She told me she wanted to give me the advice she would give to her best friend or sister or mom and I loved that! Made me feel like I could really trust her honest opinion. She took time to explain details of why the area I was having issues with was like that. I loved speaking with her!

Friendliness, professionalism, and comfort of being told about the procedure and making me feel less anxious about it.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC

Kara is amazing! She really cares about her patients and has a calming demeanor that, for a girl who hates needles, makes a huge difference. Not only that but she is a true artist with what she does and I've never experienced such minimal (sometimes no) swelling after a procedure than with Kara. I can trust her guidance and really feel like she is always thinking in my best interest. So glad she is a part of your team! [Single best thing is...] My lips were exactly the way I hoped, not overdone and barely swollen the next day. It was a great experience.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC

This was my first time getting any sort of fillers and Kara made me feel so comfortable and really took everything I was saying into consideration. She told me she didn't want to use the whole syringe just so I wouldn't feel overwhelmed and I appreciated that because at first I really did think I wanted it all at once but I'm glad she decided to take it a little bit at a time. I am going back to get the rest of the syringe put in and I'm so excited to go back! She made them look so naturally full the first time. I would absolute recommend her to anyone/everyone! [Single best thing is...] These fillers have definitely made me feel so much more confident in myself, and I absolutely love how natural and full they look.
