For over six years Kristin was a client of Preen Salon prior to becoming owner in December 2013. Kristin vividly recalls her first visit to Preen as such a unique, engaging experience she knew someday she had to be a part of it.
Today as owner, Kristin's mission is to continue and achieve that same amazing unparalleled experience for each and every Preen Salon guest. As Kristin states, "We are here to provide you phenomenal service. My hope is to have each of our clients feel as though they've walked into a sanctuary".

Dr Riolo has chosen to include only those procedures that are tried and true, not passing fads. The emphasis is on safety and results.

Dr Riolo is not afraid to say "No" if the risks and benefits just aren't going to weigh out in your favor.
