"I went to Tessa for Botox and filler’s. I was so scared to get my lips done I didn’t want them looking like most lip fillers do. I just wanted them to look natural. She took her time with me and was so gentle with the injections. They look completely natural and so pretty. She is absolutely amazing at what she does. I highly recommend her."- L.W. / Google / Jul 08, 2021
