She also works with celebrities such as CeCe Winans, Tamela Mann, and Kim Burrell and as the key makeup artist for BET's Sunday Best. But celebrity status doesn?t faze Erica.

Laser Essential's specialized aesthetic procedures begin and end with the staff: board-certified MDs and certified laser technicians, who have been trained in both skincare and laser technology. They get help, however, from technology, using Candela and Syneron equipment to address a wide range of skin issues. They slay unwanted body hair with laser hair reduction, and work to improve complexions with treatments that combat acne and diminish the signs of aging, such as sagging skin, age spots, and wrinkles. To address these types of blemishes, the techs use laser facial peels, photofacials, and laser skin tightening, to name a few. They also offer Botox and other dermal fillers, which can minimize the appearance of wrinkles, ensuring clients will never be confused for a shar-pei.
