Our Mission

It’s simple: providing a seamless experience that focuses on restoring and harmonizing facial features to keep you looking youthful, refreshed and most importantly – natural.

Our Story

When two people come together who share the same passion for perfection, special things happen. 
Laura and Maria met over ten years ago and became esteemed healthcare providers in emergency medicine, working side-by-side for years, tackling the longest night shifts together, saving countless lives, and stabilizing many others. In 2018, they briefly parted ways to start exploring different areas of medicine, including treatment of venous disease and dermatology.

Always setting the bar high and holding herself to the highest standards, Maria found an opportunity to personalize the aesthetic industry for each patient on a unique level. When she proposed this idea to Laura, their synergy was once again discovered as they teamed up to form Harlan Hawkins Aesthetics with one goal in mind: providing a seamless concierge experience that focuses on restoring and harmonizing facial features to keep their clients looking youthful, refreshed, and most importantly, natural. 
Their results-driven approach comes with years of experience, an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, and advanced injection training. They pride themselves on honest assessments and thoughtful treatment plans to achieve their patients’ goals.

We look forward to serving you as we work together to enhance your natural beauty!

Stay gorgeous,
Laura and Maria
