Erica Wagener –

Esthetician/Certified Laser Technician

As a Licensed Esthetician for more than 10 years, I joined the Padda Institute Center for Aesthetic and Laser Medicine in 2010. As a graduate from Current Trends, I learned everything you need to know about skin during that time.

I love what I do. Not only do I make peoples skin glow, they feel great about themselves also. I hope to continue for many years to come!
