Best Med Spa Reviews in Austin
Just a few of the many testimonials our clients have posted on the internet:
"Shannon is THE BEST! You will have no regrets coming here. She is so down to earth and professional. After being very hesitant to ever visit a spa again (after a horrible experience at another Austin spa) I decided to give Shannon a try based on some of the great things I had read about her. Boy, am I so glad I did! She made me feel so very comfortable and took the time to listen to my concerns. And the best part is she made my face look great! She fixed my broken capillaries and redness on my face after thinking I would have to live that way forever. Please dont think twice about going to see Shannon. She is not one of these professionals that will tell you anything to get you to spend more money and try selling you tons of products. She is honest and trustworthy and great at what she does!"

"I stumbled upon Wellspings at my yearly skin check with my dermatologist. I had some questions about laser hair removal and my doctor referred me over to Shannon who happily answered all of my questions and did a free consultation with me while I was still in the office. I have been extremely satisfied with my treatments and Shannon is very professional and an overall genuine person. I had to move to Houston a few months ago but I make sure when I am in Austin to schedule my appointments with Shannon because she is the only one I trust!"

"Fantastic results – I was referred to Shannon for laser hair removal, and let me tell you, I should have done this YEARS ago. Shannon is very friendly and eases any feelings of awkwardness (bikini area and all). And the results are spectacular. I started out with underarm and bikini area, and I was so pleased that I added other areas. The prices are very reasonable, and Shannon is realistic about what you need. If you don't need 6 sessions, she'll tell you so."

"Wellsprings has been great to me! – I work in the day and have two young kids so it is very difficult for me to have appointments during the day. Shannon Hicks has worked around my schedule doing treatments in the evenings and even on weekends. She is very sweet and attentive and knows what she is doing. I have recommended her to all my friends and because of their referral policy have received many Gift Certificates to reduce the cost of my Laser Hair Removal treatments. The Laser she uses is very comfortable and my results have been great. I wouldnt go anywhere else."

"Shannon is so caring and really takes time to understand your needs. There are a ton of options out there for good skin care and she is willing to help you explore them all until you find the right fit. I am so grateful I found her as I peel years of sun damage away!"

"thank you Shannon!! – My daughter had a mark on her face right under her eye. As she has gotten older it has gotten bigger! Most people ask her "What happened to you?" or "Who did you get into a fight with?" She was so tired of it, she would not answer anymore. Now that she is going into middle school, I knew it would be a big issue for her. We went to a pediatric physician who sent us to a Pediatric Dermatologist. Their answer was the laser, but it had to be done in a hospital setting, only because that is where their laser was. It was going to cost me over $2,000, not including what my insurance would cover!!! I was heart broken, till I mentioned it to Shannon. Shannon set aside some of her time to take a look and felt very confident she could help. She was very compassionate with my 11 yr old and took her time to make sure she was comfortable. She even applied numbing cream after the appointment and let her come back an hour later so it could soak in!! No body would do that, you would be rescheduled for another visit!! I love Shannon and the whole office. They are always on time, always willing to help and answer questions, and very professional. My daughter is very excited about her treatment and results and I will continue to see them as well."

"LOVE THIS PLACE!!! – I can't say anything but great things about this place. Shannon is wonderful, as well as the rest of the staff, and they all constantly go out of their way to provide great service... even to come in on a Saturday for a laser hair removal treatment. Wellspring DermaSpa is clean and up to date on the latest technology and skin care. I would recommend any friend or family member to try Wellsprings out. You won't be disappointed!"

"Shannon is the best! – Wellsprings Dermaspa has superior customer service, great prices without any long contract locking you into package deals, and a welcoming environment. Their chemical peels are better than I have gotten in any dermatology office. The laser hair removal under my arms was definitely worth the money. Their owner/tech, Shannon is truly interested in helping you with your individual problems and it doesn't hurt that she's a great listener too."

"The best thing I have done! – I went to Wellsprings DermaSpa to get Laser Hair Removal on my face. I had been very insecure and very self concious about getting it done. I met with Shannon to talk about the procedure, She explained the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. I have been getting the laser done on my face and it has made a huge difference in my life. Shannon has been very helpful and really cares about you and the outcome of the treatment. I don't why I didn't do this sooner in my life, but I am glad I found Wellsprings DermaSpa and am now getting the hair removed. It is Great! I will never go anywhere else."

"BEST Certified Laser Technician and Treatment Results!!!!!! – Shannon is the best certified laser technician I have ever been to!!! I'm from New York City (where there are a million of laser treatment spas) and Shannon is still the only person I trust my skin with. I had lots of freckles and sun spots, and after visiting Shannon they have completely disappeared. Shannon understands how different skin types react to laser treatments. She makes sure that you are getting the best possible treatment for your skin and the best possible results!! She honestly cares about her clients and does not waste your time or money. The prices are also very competitive and reasonable compared to similar places."

"AWESOME!!! – Okay...I recently turned 45 and I have to admit I had some insecurities that made me seek out a fotofacial. I had a lot of broken veins on my face. I also finally found out that I have rosacea. I had been told as a child that I was allergic to the sun and that was why my face would get so red and break out. lol Now...it all makes sense.
Anyway, I HAD to write this review because I know there are other people out there like me. I did a LOT of homework for the last five months and asked a lot of questions about laser treatment. I talked to at least 7 treatment places and I went for a free consultation (somewhere else) and bolted out of there. I googled all of the places in Austin to find out who did the best work. I looked at Wellsprings earlier...but I let the ominous bad review get to me....so I kept "doing homework" instead of getting anything done.
Well...I decided to go in and meet Shannon for a consultation because I knew I didn't have to make a decision then and it was all in the name of research. After talking to her and having the doctor come in to do an assessment of the rosacea, I actually bit the bullet and said..."Let's do it now." I am SOOO glad I did!!
Shannon knows her stuff and I am thrilled with the results! It's only been four days since my treatment and I can't believe the results! (Still dealing with some flakiness...but my face still looks better than before I went in!!) I originally wanted a fotofacial...but Shannon combined two laser treatments to get rid of all of the broken veins on my face. Ladies...the broken capilaries are gone!! Shannon told me we might be able to knock it out with one treatment but I still have three veins that I think might need another zap. I want to go back already because I completely trust that Shannon can and will take care of any of my skin concerns. I only wish I would have done it earlier!"

"Awesome experience – Last month I had a photofacial. The results were fabulous. I had a lot of brown age spots. Now they are gone, and without any pain or discomfort.
Today Shannon gave me a Rejuvenize Peel. I had a great experience. Going to Shannon for my treatments was a really smart decision . I am in my 60's and having a lot of fun with my spa treatments. Shannon is a wonderful young woman."

"Great place for laser! – After years of being uncomfortable with scarring on my face from ingrown hairs from plucking and waxing, I discovered Shannon! I started going to Shannon over 2 years ago for Laser on my face, and have continued to go to her for other things. She definitely knows what she's doing, and even knows to use a special laser machine on me since I have a darker complexion. Most places just have one machine."

"My skin looks better than ever! – About a year ago I went to another spa in Austin to get a Photofacial and got blistered. Then a friend told me about Shannon at Wellsprings DermaSpa. I called her and she convinced me to try it again. She said that she was the owner as well as the technician and the last thing she wanted was for me to go around town with blisters on my face, telling everyone where she got them. She told me how she would do the procedure correctly and then she did a free test spot to prove to me that she wasnt going to burn me. Three days later I did the entire procedure and was amazed at the incredible results. The sun damage my face received over the years has now vanished after three treatments and my skin is even-toned and looks better than I ever imagined it could."

"I am wearing shorts again – I had heinous spider veins on the back of both thighs. They covered about 4 inches x 4 inches around. I wouldn't even wear shorts. After a few visits to Wellsprings, the laser treatment cleared those up, along with others on my ankles.
I also get laser hair removal. I started with my armpits thinking that's all I would do. Now I have done several other areas as well. I like how they don't charge you a couple thousand dollars up front like other places. I can come in and pay as I go along, which spreads out the costs nicely...especially when I have have the motto "all brown hair must go!"
I am thrilled to stop the hassle of shaving. It is amazing how nice that feels when you're on vacation. It's even better when you get goose bumps and your leg hair doesn't shoot out!"

"Awesome Spa, will go back again!!! – I went for laser hair removal and my hair has NOT grown back!!! I used to be ashamed about my dark hair but NOW, I am no longer ashamed and feel great in a bathing suit, in Skirts and more...:)
Shannon is so kind and caring I could not ask for better service...
Shannon offers many services and I will try them ALL!!!"

"Best of Austin!!! – Shannon is wonderful. I'm 100% happy with her work. She is so honest and friendly. You can't do any better. And... she won the Best of Austin in the Chornicle this year."

"Best Photofacials!! – I have had a rosacea problem since the birth of my second son which has really bothered me. Immediately after my first photofacial session I saw a major difference in my skin... it was unbelieveable. Shannon made me feel so comfortable we talked about anything and everything. I had a total of 3 sessions of photofacials and no longer can see any traces of rosacea. I was so impressed that I had my husband come in to get hair removal from around his ears. He was so comfortable that I was able to get him to come back without any argument, that's amazing!"
