    Due to geography, I found myself needing to find a new place for injections. Valeri really took the time to understand my concerns and addressed them thoroughly. Building that level of trust and confidence with a new specialist is crucial, … More especially when it comes to something as personal as facial injections. It was fantastic that she took the time to sit down with me, discuss your needs and concerns, and provide me with all the information I needed to feel comfortable moving forward.

  • Avatar Erika Whitten ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Coming on here to give a 5 star review that I hope everyone gets to read. Valeri went over the top when doing my consult. I heard great things about her and ran into some TMJ trouble and reached out! I am here to say she is THE MOST honest … More professional I have ever come across. She so is well educated and professional. Although I booked my appointment for one specific service, she offered me a different suggestion and it made sense. She explained how and when(considering my circumstances) she could help but clearly stated that there was probably a few other things I should be trying first. I left my first appointment with no Botox and no charge. Valeri showed genuine concern and went out of her way to meet and care for me at her office during a time her office usually isnt open.I would like to add I was in pain, uncomfortable and hoping to get some relief asap and she made sure not to take advantage of that.. I will be Back to Direct Aesthetics in the near future and I cant wait! Thank You Valeri!
