Before & Afters
"Melissa is seriously the best in NC when it comes to her craft. She is beyond knowledgeable and an expert in all areas, gives her honest advice and only does what is right and necessary by you (the client/patient) and she delivers unbelievable gorgeous natural results. I’m fairly new to the getting injections world but I’ve always watched and been interested in aesthetic transformations and I always thought I wouldn’t be able to receive the high end quality results like those that celebrities get unless I went out to NY, Cali, Miami..some big city. I’m so grateful one of the best is here in NC and that I had an opportunity to to be a model in one of her classes and learn first hand that it is safe and smart to invest in her talent if this is something you’ve been wanting to do for a while. She is more expensive than the rest but her results are unlike any other and you can definitely trust you’ll walk out transformed but completely natural looking with safe practices"
