SPA IN THE CITY was founded 10 years ago, but was built on several decades of knowledge. Josanne Stephens is the driving force behind this unique medspa tucked away in the eclectic mix of businesses located on West Lovers Lane in Dallas. She has painstakingly sought out a team that reflects her passion and knowledge to give clients at Spa in the City the BEST experience possible.
Josanne has an honest and caring attitude that makes clients seek her out. She prides herself on not overdoing. She is not afraid to say “no…that’s enough” to keep her clients away from duck lips or the over-done Real Housewives look. She also will approach aesthetics with her clients from a financially reasonable side; trying to work within everyone’s budget. Josanne’s motto…. “I want clients to be able to look in the mirror and see a more youthful self….not a stranger”.
Josanne lives with her Golden Retriever, Mya and kitty Ginger.
