What We


All too often, medical spas focus on pushy tactics without giving actual results.

As the premier medical spa in Marquette, we care more about helping you look better than trying to force you to get unnecessary treatments.

Our goal is that you walk away from our office looking and feeling better, because when you feel good, we feel good. That’s the Superior difference.



We have been in business for over 10 years in the Marquette area.

People come from all over the Upper Peninsula to our medical spa. Our goal is to focus on not only your outer beauty, but your overall health and wellness.

At Superior Aesthetics, it is our mission to provide expertise and education for every individual to exceed expectations in quality and service. For our medical aesthetics staff, the main focus is health and wellness to diminish the signs of aging both physically and mentally.
