Relaxing Atmosphere; Wonderful Service

Sarah was very informative when giving directions for my topical prescriptions. She explained what they did and when/how to apply them. She also gave me coupons that saved me $100s for a topical prescription. So far my acne has improved so much and she says it will keep getting better which makes me hopeful. I like how she wants to inform me and is very open to answering any questions I may have. The esthetician who does my microdermabrasion is very sweet. The atmosphere of each appointment is relaxing and she makes conversations comfortable. She talks through her facial and forewarns me of each side effect so I am not surprised. I like how she explains the benefits of each procedure she does and asks if I have questions. I leave the office with smooth skin every time and I hope this eventually helps my acne scars as I keep up with appointments.

Masterful

I love it when a doctor explains everything in layman's terms. Dr. Helton is a master at his craft with an artistic eye. The procedures I received were virtually painless. And best of all no bruising. The staff is courteous, welcoming & professional. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
