AESTHETICS AND WELLNESS
ABOUT THE LOTUS
The Lotus Aesthetics and Wellness was built on a dream from two friends who were simply too busy with their home and professional lives to seek out aesthetic treatments, or self care in general, but we had absolutely no plans of growing old!! Our "well, we will just inject each other" turned into us injecting our friends, and then their friends, and so on, and so on. We continue to gain beautiful new clients, mostly by word of mouth, who often end up just enlarging our circle of friends.
The Lotus, originally Concierge Aesthetics of San Antonio (CASA), is now a dream come true for other busy people who want to look their best without wasting valuable time waiting for appointments and without the disappointment of seeing unfamiliar faces when returning for treatments.
Founded in March 2014; The Lotus is an innovative competitively priced aesthetic and wellness company for Helotes, San Antonio and surrounding areas.
The Lotus' certified injectors provides individualized complimentary consultations and medical aesthetic and wellness services including "Tox," Dermal Fillers, Secret RF Microneedling, SkinPen Microneedling, PRP/PRF injections/treatments, Kybella, Hormone Replacement Therapy / BioTE, and nutrition/weight loss solutions.
“We strive to make every client feel their most beautiful because everyone deserves to look and feel lovely. We focus on connecting with each and every client to help you be your natural self, from the inside out.”
