In her own words: “I struggled with acne as a teenager and received monthly acne treatments from an esthetician. After seeing results, I finally felt confident in my own skin. A year ago I decided to follow my passion for skincare and help others feel confident in their bare skin. I’ve now dedicated my career to helping others find that comfort in their own skin and provide accessible skincare treatment they can find here at Better U MedSpa.”
