Owner of Medicína Belléza
On February 10th, 2018, Medicina Belleza hosted an open house party to launch its opening. The place was full and a fun time was had by all! Several treatments were raffled off and all attendees received samples of the Epionce skin care line. A presentation on the Epionce line was given as was a presentation on the Skin Pen micro-needling and Alumna Photodynamic Therapy treatments. Two attendees received these treatments during the party and all were impressed with the results. Food, beverages, and wine were enjoyed and people stayed to the very end. We hope to see new people along with our established clients at our next event!
