As an intermediate to advanced injector, I was very impressed with all the awesome pearls and injection techniques that Grace taught me. I highly recommend her to anyone of any level seeking additional training!

As an advanced nurse injector that had the pleasure of being trained by Grace, I was excited to have the opportunity to work along side her and to be her patient for the first time. I am very particular about who I let inject me but felt so comfortable and excited. Grace injected my lips- I’m obsessed. I had previously had filler gone wrong in my lips had to dissolve it and was very apprehensive about having them refilled but I am in love with them. Grace also did my Botox and had a great suggestion for trying threads to lift my aging face the procedure was relatively painless and the results were amazing. The office in Hickory is top notch classy yet warm and welcoming. I recommend Grace to all of my former patients as I now practice in NYC. I highly recommend Grace and her amazing staff to meet and exceed your aesthetic needs and training for anyone interested in becoming a provider. Thank you Grace, I feel wonderful!!!!

After training with Grace, I finally feel confident. This is the most comprehensive Botox training that I have attended, and I now have the capability to assess and treat all areas of the face. Grace is an expert and such a caring instructor. I highly recommend any injector to take the opportunity to train with her! 


Grace, thank you again!
