Maria is wonderful! I have been to several different places for Botox, and Maria is by far the best injector I've seen. She asked lots of questions to ensure she knew what I wanted to achieve, and she explained exactly what she was doing and why. She doesn't make me feel rushed and she really listens. As an added bonus, she is fun to talk to you and makes the setting feel very relaxed. And most importantly...the results were fantastic! I am very glad I found her!
