I rarely recommend a business but this one is a must! I have had my brows and lash lines microbladed by Clinica Medica. Her work Is beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the results. I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy and painless it was to have done. Valerie has a very professional manner and her attention to detail and hygiene is second to none.


If you are looking for a truly professional look then Clinica Medica is definitely the place to go, my only regret is I didn't get it done sooner. Try it - it will completely transform your face - I guarantee you'll not regret it!
