Sandy Hunt, AGACNP-C
With nonsurgical techniques, each patient receives facial balancing and global harmonizing. Using a french lens, I address more than just a wrinkle. I play with shadows, color, radiance and projection. The overall enhancement is never in just one area, it is global. Each patient leaves feeling they received much more than what they were searching for. I work to help you look and feel “emotionally” beautiful. While this type of beauty comes from a very interior place, it is reflected in tiny details across the face. The end result is truly graceful aging.
