My experience with Mid Ohio Aesthetics was amazing. Lauren is so knowledgeable and professional. As a first time botox customer, Lauren made me feel comfortable and was able to answer every question I had along the way. The experience was not only amazing, but my results were also amazing. I had deep forehead wrinkles prior to seeing Lauren and now they have started to fade. I feel so much more confident now.
I am so happy I found Mid Ohio Aesthetics! I was initially really nervous about being a new Botox customer, but as soon as I met Lauren I instantly felt comfortable. She was so sweet and really great at explaining every step of the procedure from her end and made sure all of my questions and concerns were addressed prior to making any injections! Not only did she make me feel very calm but the results were better than I could have even imagined. I had deep wrinkles between my eyes and wanted to soften them just a little. Lauren saw my vision for wanting a more natural look and made it come to life! After a few days my wrinkles had softened, but it was natural and just the way I imagined it! I am so happy I found Mid Ohio Aesthetics and met Lauren!
I had such a wonderful experience with Lauren at Mid Ohio Aesthetics. I had specific areas especially the wrinkles in my forehead that have always bothered me and made me feel really insecure. Lauren was very professional, knowledgeable, and confident. She made me feel comfortable the entire time and knew exactly what to do to make those insecurities go away. I am forever thankful for her and her work!
Lauren is amazing! She really listens and makes sure she achieves what you want. She always wants feedback to know how she can become the best injector in central Ohio. I would most definitely recommend her!
Mid Ohio Aesthetics is hands down the BEST Botox experience that I have ever had!!! I’ve never had Botox kick in as quickly as it did- I was beginning to see results literally within the first couple of days after getting it! I’m usually prone to bruising and had absolutely ZERO bruising! The atmosphere is beautiful. To say that Lauren is incredible is an understatement….. She is not only professional, she makes you feel extremely comfortable. Couldn’t be happier!!!
I have heard and seen nothing but great things from customers at Mid Ohio Aesthetics! Lauren brings the same level of expertise and professionalism to Mid Ohio Aesthetics that she does while performing plastic & reconstructive surgery at Mansfield plastic surgery.
