I recently took a Microneedling Class at BYSA and cannot say enough great things about the experience. The facility is beautiful and the lab and classroom are setup perfectly for learning and treating clients. The materials were presented very well, the instructor was also the owner and founder of BYSA and she is an excellent teacher.
