After working in medical aesthetics for nearly a decade, Valerie Monismith, RN felt there was something missing from the industry’s approach to client satisfaction. To fill the void, Valerie envisioned a place of privacy, professionalism, and personalized care where clients felt comfortable and valued without feeling rushed.
Committed to making her clients feel like family, Valerie opened her own medical aesthetics office in 2015 and named it Ashtoria Aesthetics & Wellness – inspired by the names of her two daughters, Ashley and Victoria. In opening Ashtoria, Valerie established a locked-door policy in order to provide private, white glove service to her valued clients. She also offered longer appointment blocks than most offices in the area, allowing her to take her time with each client to educate them on treatment options and expectations.
As Ashtoria grew, Valerie wanted a business partner to join her in developing and expanding the brand. She knew she needed someone who would maintain the level of integrity and client care that she had established, and she found that in Angie Boscaccy, RN. Having worked together as Labor & Delivery nurses for many years prior, Valerie and Angie had already built a strong bond based on trust and a mutual appreciation for a higher standard of care. Angie was impressed by Ashtoria’s commitment to client education and satisfaction, and was eager to provide individualized care in a setting that allowed her to give clients her undivided attention. In 2017, Angie became co-owner of Ashtoria and a treatment provider for injectable and laser treatments. Just over one year later, she and Valerie expanded Ashtoria to a larger facility that would allow the team to offer additional amenities to its growing clientele.
Since its inception, Ashtoria has offered a range of highly effective treatments for enhancing skin health and improving self-confidence. Valerie and Angie understand the importance of continuing education, especially within the ever-changing field of medical aesthetics. They have committed to ongoing training by attending symposiums and seminars across the United States and abroad, including hands-on experience at the Laser & Health Academy in Slovenia. Ashtoria was the first in the Mid-South to offer the award-winning Fotona Laser system, the world's oldest laser company known for its revolutionary applications for aesthetics, dermatology, gynecology, and other areas of medical care. The Ashtoria team has also been recognized for its modern approach to neuro-modulators (Botox and Dysport) and dermal fillers (Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, Bellafill, and more) to produce natural-looking results with little-to-no downtime.
The Ashtoria team would like to thank all of the loyal clients who have contributed to the company’s growth and success! Our small business would not be what it is without the positive word of mouth testimonies and support of those who find comfort and satisfaction in Ashtoria’s approach to mind, body, and skin.
