About Us

Our Passion Is A Smooth You

Every employee at Hello Smooth, from our front desk to our providers, have personally experienced how Laser Hair Removal, Cosmetic Injectables (BotoxⓇ, DysportⓇ & Fillers) and CoolSculptingⓇ changes lives! We all have a story; from shaving twice a day to carrying tweezers in our purses to hiding embarrassing wrinkles with bangs and to saddlebags that just won’t go away regardless of daily workouts. Let us be the end of the road for your unwanted hair, fine lines and stubborn fat pockets that have negatively impacted your life for so long. We will have you leaving our studio feeling confident, pampered and smooth!
