"Michelle Nunez and Dr. Stead are amazing. Michelle was very informative to a first-timer like myself and was thorough with her work. She did not hesitate to call Dr. Stead into the room when she questioned a spot on my face. They were able to squeeze me in for a quick biopsy same day which was super convenient and greatly appreciated."

"I have been getting facials by Michelle for a couple of years now and am extremely happy with the results. She modifies the treatments based on how my skin is doing at that time so it always feels like a new experience. Since I have rosacea, my skin is different depending on the season and I really appreciate the knowledge and passion that Michelle infuses into her facials. I highly recommend her."
