BOTOX® Cosmetic

Kara was very informative, and did the treatment efficiently and quickly. She mentioned I might want to come back for a touch up and/or minor correction if I had concerns.


First, the communication with the office was excellent and so convenient. The nurse that got me settled in my room was super friendly. Kara came in and took such good care of me. She listened to what I wanted done and did better than I could ever imagined! She did so good I referred 3 of my friends to her!


Kara is so nice and made me feel comfortable through my consult and during the treatment. Couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you Kara!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Kara always takes her time and asks what results I am looking for. She then goes over what she thinks will work best for me. Since I bruise very easily, she is always very careful to help make sure I bruise as little as possible.

My entire experience was so positive, from the moment I entered the office. The entire staff is very professional but very warm and friendly. I felt very safe and at ease in the room where the laser procedure took place. Kara explained every step to me, and the team continued to make sure I was comfortable.

miraDry Treatment performed by Kara P. was the most relaxed experience. She really knows how to treat her patients by answering any questions and making them feel comfortable. I could tell she had extensive experience by performing this procedure. Thank you a ton Kara!

Nova Thread

I am overjoyed with my experience. Kara was absolutely amazing. She gave me a detailed virtual consult for nova threads and lip filler, and provided both treatments during my initial visit. She was kind, informative and so incredibly gentle and skilled. I looked and felt better about myself immediately after my treatment and left with minimal swelling and zero bruising! During my follow up visit we decided on some filler around my eyes and a little on my jaw line and I just couldn't be happier. I'm so, so grateful for Kara's expertise, time, and attention. Thank you, Kara, for making me look naturally fresher and younger, and for helping me feel so much better about myself. Kara is THE BOMB.
