“My career goal has always been to help people in every capacity. My aesthetic passion is to provide natural looking results while making my patients feel confident and looking like the very best version of themselves.”
"I’ve been interested in getting injectables for awhile, but was nervous to take the plunge. Now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long! Hannah was so professional and helpful answering my many questions and guiding me in the right direction to get the results I was looking for. She set clear expectations for what to expect during the appointment and the healing process so there weren’t any surprises. If you’re on the fence, I highly recommend booking a consultation to talk through your goals! I couldn’t be happier with my results! Thanks Hannah!!"
"The Medi Spa is awesome! I love the results of the micro needling. My skin is so smooth and look so much better! Hannah was great too and very knowledgeable :)"
"I have had microneedling, Botox, filler, laser hair removal, and lip flip by Jason. He does an amazing job. Everyone at skin retouch is super professional and informative. They have some amazing services, can’t wait to learn more about them and invest in my skin/ self."
"Hannah and The entire Team are fabulous. Please consider seeing them for your beauty needs. They have helped me with recent hair loss issues and loss of collagen issues. So thrilled we have a knowledgeable, professional, and Caring staff right here in our little town."
"Emily was amazing to explain ideas for improving my skin since I’m 40 now and am starting to see the signs of aging more now than ever. I recommend her, I have seen her 2 times and in a couple months plan to see her again!!!"
