"Just left my skin analysis and dermaplaning appointment with Paige and it was amazing. Having combination skin can be tricky but Paige explained so many treatments/ products to help. She was so sweet to walk me through the dermaplaning since this was my first and my skin is so soft now I can’t wait to do it again!"

"I had my first Radiesse injection (cheeks and nasal labial) appt ever yesterday. I was really nervous and anxious. I have to say, that I am amazed at how comfortable Doreen made me and the results are awesome. After the swelling went down (and that didn't take long, 24 hours) I can see how natural and subtle, yet effective, the results are. She did a fantastic job and 24 hours later I have barely any swelling and the only "bruise" you can see is at a couple needle entry points. It is barely noticeable, don't even need any cover up. She's talented for sure! :)"

"I have had sensitive skin and adult acne most of my life, and have always kept regular appointments with local estheticians. Last summer, I was sent to Charlottesville for a work assignment. While there, I went to Signature Spa for skin care and met Lyn Chang. Lyn's facial treatment was by far the best skin care I've ever received! I'm now living south of Roanoke, VA, and travel over 2-1/2 hours every 4-6 weeks for regular facials with Lyn. She is well worth the time and travel! (And everyone that I've met at Signature Spa has been warm, friendly, and helpful. It's a great place, overall.)"

“I know that there is no need for a testimonial about Doreen since she is busier than one person could ever be, and will never lack for clients. However, such a rare and remarkable woman should be recognized. Doreen is that rare human being who is gifted, capable, smart, creative, kind and devoted- all at the same time. She is the quintessential gifted professional who is also a profoundly caring and compassionate human being. When you meet Doreen you know right away you are in good hands. In my situation, Doreen honored my nervousness and sensitivity from the get go. Over the course of our years of work she has always worked from the consideration of my needs and kept the aesthetic goals in mind. She has used her creative gifts to find a way to achieve the desired results without railroading me into work I was not prepared to withstand. When Doreen takes my chin in hand and looks at my face I trust her evaluation of what is needed 100 percent. I know she is never trying to sell me a procedure or do unneeded work. I know she is always considering what is best for all of me, and the best way to achieve it. Being in Doreen’s presence is a true gift. And that is saying a lot when our interactions involve physical discomfort! I leave each time feeling blessed. Everyone at Signature Medical Spa is kind and considerate of the needs of all of us nutty ladies. It is a very special place. But I just had to give a shout out in celebration of Doreen. While I know you don’t need testimonials, if there are ever prospective clients who are on the fence- I am always available to share my trust and confidence in the services offered.” – Loyal Client of Doreen Schuett, RN, BSN

"Incredible Work with a Kind Approach. I'm not going to fancy this up like some yelp review. This is my face were talking about here. I had a meltdown on my first appointment and walked out with out receiving any fillers. This is due to some Ptsd from a previous medical treatment. Long story short, this woman was patient. Then, to implicate myself even more, I was 40 minutes late to my second appointment. I received my injections even though I would have understood if she told me to come back. I had no pain during and after. I was extremely fearful and almost in fight or flight through most of the procedure. I assured her this was normal and she worked with me. She took her time and listened to me. My friend that came with me got botox with absolutly stunning results. She has very deep forehead lines and some crows feet. She has a pep in her step from the treatment provided by Jody. Bottom line. Wonderful and safe work from this provider also Wonderful treatment from staff." -    As written on RealSelf
