Shalini W.

I’ve tried every skin care treatment under the moon since I was a teenager so I have plenty of experience with aestheticians. Venera is a miracle worker. I originally only booked one appointment for a facial and after coming in for my appointment and discussing my skin issues, she recommended doing the microdermabrasian instead which I’ve had in the past. I ended up buying a 4 pack deal she had because I enjoyed it so much. I also purchased a hydrating serum from the skin care line she sells. The 4 pack deal may seem expensive but it is well worth it for great skin.

I’ve now completed all 4 sessions and my skin hasn’t looked this good in years. I’m not kidding. I get compliments all the time on my skin and I’m comfortable enough to go without makeup most days now. I’ve had acne since I was young (two rounds of Accutane) so going without makeup and being this comfortable with my face is huge. Thank you Venera!!

This is my fifth laser treatment session with Venera and I am very happy that I chose this place. I am very satisfied with the results. Venera will take her time to explain every detail of the procedure. This was my first laser treatment and honestly I was a little bit scared but Venera made sure that I was comfortable during the treatment. You are in good hands!!!

Dinara R.

I’ve been to this skincare place 3 times over the past few months and have been extremely happy! Wonderful professional treatment and my skin feels and looks great. Some minor conditions improved just after a few treatments. The atmosphere is great, super clean room and equipment. Venera is very polite, attentive and caring. Best skincare clinic ever, I would recommend it to anyone who lives in the area. Just make sure to call ahead for an appointment! Enjoy!

Venera is such a sweetheart, I highly recommend her and her services. She is very professional, passionate about what she is doing, and very knowledgeable. She also takes the time to explain everything to her customers. When I first talked to her over the phone, I had so many questions and concerns which she answered precisely. She is the type of person that would comfort you, yet she would be super honest in explaining the situation and its consequences. She also would do her best to accommodate you. I already recommended her to one of my best friends and she was so happy about her services as well. I will continue to do so because she is really one of the best service providers I have ever dealt with. Highly recommended.

I visit this clinic this past Thursday and i was very impressed with DermApproach because i felt welcome since i got there by Venera! She was very professional and honest, she went through every detail i was looking for i think is a great place that you can go to. She also takes her time explaining everything to you and all different procedures you could need.

I just started laser hair removal treatments here and I’m very impressed! Very professional and clean office and the service is wonderful! Venera did an excellent job;she really took the time to listen to what I wanted and I’m very happy with the results.

Melissa C.

What a fantastic experience. I have been to 4 different laser hair removal places over the past year due to moving and poor experiences.  The location is very clean. The tech was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. Most importantly, I have had great results. I was doing brazilian back in Chicago and loved the results, came here and unfortunately bought a package at a place that wasn’t so great. I started looking around again and found Dermapproach and have been very pleased. I think education on the laser process is very important, and they make sure you know what to expect and give you great results!
