Josanne started Spa in the City over 10 years ago in one little room inside the offices of Vernon and Walrep OB/GYN in Medical City. What started out as a one person operation quickly turned into much more. Now several moves later Spa in the City has grown to a staff of 10 and 7 treatment rooms.
Josanne started out doing electrolysis and facials then eventually added permanent make-up before moving into the realm of a true medspa when Spa in the City was born. With over 30 years of experience in the field of beauty she never has stopped learning and growing. “It’s fun to see clients I did electrolysis on years ago now bringing their daughters in for laser hair removal!”
Josanne takes a caring approach to aesthetics…both visually and financially. She created Spa in the City’s unique VIP Membership that is now copied all around the metroplex but NEVER with all the same features in an effort to allow clients to treat all their needs affordably. Visually Josanne is known for a natural, pro-youth approach to injectables. “I want client’s to see a younger looking version of themselves in the mirror, not a stranger.”
Josanne lives in the evolving Midway Hollow area with her 2 dogs Missy and Mya and her cat, Ginger. In her spare time she loves to work in her gardens. She was recently interviewed on Shoutout DFW….for the full article click HERE.
