Nikki was the best! I’ve been coming to her for a few sessions now for Botox for the wrinkles around my eyes and the spot in between my eyebrows. She is super professional and everyone at the front desk is really nice and friendly. Plus the wait is very short which I appreciate. I even met Dr. Lin a few times and he is great. Highly recommend!
