Her extensive training in state-of-the-art treatments and facial analysis, coupled with her attention to detail, enable Dr. Taylor to present and deliver a straightforward, stepwise approach to rejuvenation. Dr. Taylor takes her time to get to know her clients, educating them, setting them at ease and minimizing discomfort. Her artistic eye and passion for natural enhancement is valued by her loyal clients and those just beginning their rejuvenation journey.
“Beauty is achieved when health, energy and one’s outer appearance align to reflect a unique inner spirit. All of us experience times when our outer appearance falls short of our ideal and we feel “out of sync.” It is wonderful that we have so many treatment options available today. There are treatments for someone just beginning to explore cosmetic medical treatments and continued education and new treatments for others. I love to work with my clients to come up with reasonable goals and expectations. While looking younger is often a mutual goal, most clients say that achieving the goal of looking their natural best for as long as possible would make them very happy. I’m honored to help with that!”
Dr. Taylor is married with two adult sons, 2 dogs and a large, extended family. She enjoys sewing, music, golf and travel.
