I had hydra facial treatment done with Mel today. She was awesome, knowledgeable about what she does and gentle. This procedure was relaxing. I actually fell asleep. My skin feels refreshing and was glowing. I can’t wait for my next appointment!
Today I came in for a My first ever hydrafacial with Mel. She was amazing and I may or may not have fallen asleep during my treatment because I was so relaxed. My skin was glowing and had my pores looking flawless.
