Kelly O'Carroll, MLE


Heather Padgett, MLE


Heather Padgett and Kelly O'Carroll met in 2003, before either of them were aestheticians and have been besties ever since. They took a shared path in Aesthetics and have 34 years of combined experience doing what they love to help their clients feel and look their best. With a shared philosophy of trying to help their clients attain their own personal standard of beauty, they have always aspired to work in the medical aesthetics industry so that they could up the ante on solutions to concerns that plague these clients.


Although spa treatments deliver results, there are limitations to how results-oriented they can be. This is how medical aesthetics can contribute. Teaming up with our medical director and nurse injectors, and acquiring laser and microneedling certifications, Kelly and Heather can now offer just the type of services that are needed to reach your goals with less effort and downtime. Halcyon DermAesthetics can create a care plan to take all the guesswork out of what to do about the skin concerns you want addressed.
