I then provided consultations, treatments for the reduction of cellulite, treatment for post surg Pts for face and body. I love being able to provide my clients both skincare treatments and body contouring helping them be confident in their skin and body.
Client testimony: “I am a 62 year old male who was referred to Bonnie as a follow up to abdominal liposuction surgery. My procedure left me with the need for some fine tuning which required a combination of both Endermologie and Vela Shaping. The results have been phenomenal and have greatly exceeded my expectations. Through Bonnie’s expertise, she has enhanced my appearance to a level that I had not thought possible. My body looks more like that of a 30 year old than a 60 year old.” ~ Gary
