This combo enables us to provide full-spectrum options that can be tailored to the patient’s needs."
The Aesthetic Center's services include but are not limited to injectables, microblading, laser hair removal, laser skin rejuvenation, skincare regimens, sclerotherapy and much more.
The Aesthetic Center’s team prides themselves on being honest with their patients and tailoring every procedure plan in a way that provides exceptional service and happy clients.
“We provide an exceptional patient experience with exceptional outcomes and we are honest about what we can accomplish for our patients,” Dr. Merriman added.
No matter what service The Aesthetic Center is providing, it is always top priority to use safe, ethically proven products and procedures that help their patients feel confident and leave with a smile on their face.
