“A medi-spa is a place to go for noninvasive aesthetic services in a relaxing spa-like atmosphere. We work together as a team to educate our clients and help them feel comfortable with the right service for their best outcome.”

Robin Bernens, Belladerm MedSpa


"The procedures we’re doing cause less downtime and risk. There are a lot of other non-physicians that are trying to get into this business because of the aging population and the demand for these services.”

Dr. Brian Zelickson, Zel Skin & Laser Specialists


“People want to see results, but they don’t want downtime and they don’t necessarily want anyone to know they’ve done it. We’re going to be seeing more and more procedures that are patient-driven in terms of ease of experience. But results are good, too.”

Dr. Elizabeth Hagberg, Skin Rejuvenation Clinic
