"I come here all the time. I have had many services done here including dermal filler‘s, IPL, and I’m having a chemical peel done at the beginning of April. I buy my skin care products from this office. Everyone is very professional. Becky usually does my dermal fillers and she does a wonderful job. She has done my Botox, my lip fillers, and my IPL treatment. She is always professional, makes me feel comfortable, and always tells me if I need to come back for anything she will take care of me. I truly believe you get what you pay for. I moved Here from Virginia so I had to find a new person to do my fillers. I will definitely be a forever patient at contoura. For the people that wrote negative reviews, I read them and they make no sense. You are not supposed to have a nurse with you after having dermal filler‘s. I went into work after I got my fillers done. Just remember you can’t please everyone. I have been going to this place ever since I moved here six months ago, I’ve had many treatments done and they have all been wonderful. I am a hairdresser, I went right to work after my procedures (IPL, lip fillers, Botox) If you are having some type of surgical procedure then you’re going to have some downtime. I give this place five stars."- H.S. / Google / Feb 24, 2021
