My Story

Aesthetics By Prescription

We all have different standards of beauty. How do you define it for yourself? You may think that feeling your most beautiful requires surgery or the extensive use of harsh chemicals, but that isn’t true.

As a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a doctorate in nursing science and more than 20 years of experience in aesthetics, I have seen firsthand what natural aesthetic treatments can do for my clients. They can reduce wrinkles, remove aging skin cells, and diminish unwanted fat—among many other benefits—giving your skin a healthier, more youthful appearance. Beyond that, they can also restore your confidence and help you feel like your best self.

I wanted to create a different type of skin care experience for both women and men. I founded Aesthetics by Prescription to provide a comfortable and caring environment where I could make a dramatic difference in my clients’ appearances and lives through a combination of skin education, treatment, and nurturing. I am committed to making that difference by incorporating a variety of treatments for your specific needs.

Not only do I offer the latest aesthetics treatments for my clients, but I also offer my expertise as a consultant. Today, I help nurses practitioners who want to turn their passion for aesthetic services into a sustainable practice.

A  high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.  I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry. You can reach me directly by calling or texting 816-304-5475.

I have been a client of Mary's for years

As a business owner and mom of three, life rarely slows down. Even though I put effort into yoga and eating right, my face was beginning to show those pesky fine lines on my forehead. Thanks to Mary's expertise, the lines are gone and I regularly get compliments on how good my skin looks!
