Our commitment to excellence

The Hernried Center has taken care of patients since 1983. Our thorough, team-based approach has helped thousands of patients rediscover their future.

Many of our patients who have lost a significant amount of weight have the unfortunate side effect of extra wrinkles and skin laxity. To provide the same level of outstanding service, we have developed The Finishing Touch Medspa to help patients transform themselves on the outside as well. Our Menu of Services offers many of the most effective non-surgical aesthetic treatments available anywhere in the country. Our staff is among the most experienced in the area, and we are constantly enhancing their education with advanced trainings and certifications.

We realize that while all the wonderful equipment and a nice location is important, nothing is more important than the way we treat our clients.

To you, our valued client, we pledge to:

Provide thorough and comprehensive consultations including detailed explanations on why we recommend specific services and realistic expectations of the result of these treatments. This will include a complete program of treatments as well as a program for caring for your skin at home.

We will treat each of our clients in a pleasant and professional manner. We will strive to make our place of business one in which is enjoyable to visit and one in which you will feel comfortable referring friends and family

We will earn your business! We are aware that you have many choices for aesthetic services. Through our experienced staff, state-of-the-art lasers and equipment, advanced services, and our integrity, we will provide you with a level of service superior to not only our competition here in the Sacramento area, but anywhere in the country.

Through all our best efforts, we know there will be times when things don’t go exactly as planned. In these instances, we want you to feel free to address any issues so that we may do everything in our power to make sure you are satisfied. While we cannot promise perfection, we can promise 100% effort.
