Hey Zensken Fam, Ashley here! Let's talk about the Dream Team of Aesthetics: You and Your Med Spa Medical Director!

Picture this: You've built your dream med spa. It's a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation, with a carefully curated menu of treatments designed to make your clients look and feel their absolute best.
