THUMBS UP! – WOW. What can I say? Rachel is amazing and I love love the laser genesis and facials she gives. This place is a seriously hidden gem and the deals are amazing. I just cannot say enough great things about it!
Good microdermabrasion – I really enjoyed my microderm that I had at The Skin Spa. I got a Living Social deal for NYC that allowed me to get it for $35. My skin is glowing and fully cleansed. I believe the pricing is very fair at this spa and would tell my friends about it!
Very Pleasant Experience – I went to the spa after a recommendation from the concierge at my hotel. Honestly I was skeptical if it would be any good because the price seemed a little too good to be true-- I have NEVER found a place in California that offered anything less than $100. Luckily, after calling the spa with a few questions I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised. The spa was very clean and had retro-styled light fixtures. My technician was so helpful and told me how I could control my "irritated travel-skin" .. I left feeling refreshed and my skin looked a million times better. I'll definitely come back on my next visit and will recommend the same to my friends.
Great find!! – I went to the Skin Spa to use the coupons they give you when you sign up. I had a brazilian and half leg. The girl who performed the services was awesome (Jenn). The price for both after the coupon? $41. SO GREAT!! They give everyone 3 coupons when you register for the daily emails. The deals in the emails are amazing and I'm really happy I listened to my friend who referred me there. The prices are fantastic!
I'll be a regular from now on.
beware low prices, you get less treatment – I booked a titan treatment for face and neck. When I arrived the very nice aesthetician asked what my concerns were. I said my sagging jaw, chin, and neck. So She went ahead and did the treatment only on those areas. On my face she did my nasal folds, but not cheeks, forehead, eyes. When she said that the treatment was over I asked why she did not do a full half of my face. She replied that they only have a certain amount of pulses per treatment, and that she had used them up on the areas of concern. I have had Titan before at another, more expensive, place and they CONCENTRATED on the areas I mentioned but DID the whole area I purchased. I left feeling really ripped off. If was cheap if it was face and neck, but not cheap for half-face and neck! Be really careful and know what you are getting! Unfortunately I booked a package of three and this was my first treatment! What a rip off!
LOVED IT - GOING BACK! – LOVED it. I am so happy to know about The Skin Spa! I went in to get a microdermabrasion and a facial to get my face clean for my upcoming wedding. My esthetician customized the experience for me and gave me recommendations about caring for my skin in the future. she did a fantastic job. great pricing too (only $60 for a facial!). i picked up the menu of services and am excited to go back.
I do NOT recommend this place for skin with Melanin! – I am a light-skinned black women who had a professional peel 3 weeks ago and my skin not only has failed to look nice, it looks MUCH worse.
The days immediately following the peel I literally looked like a burn victim. I sucked it up, assuming that once it peeled it would be ok. Unfortunately I was wrong. Now exactly three weeks after the peel, I have discoloration on my forehead, cheeks, and especially around my mouth--around the lips, on the chin and along the laugh lines, which makes them appear to be deep wrinkles (I'm 25 years-old and wrinkle-free).
I told the staff member that was working on my face during the procedure that it was burning the area around my mouth and she said that was normal...
When I called to express my concern about the results 2 weeks later, I was again told that it was normal. No, "Come in and we'll take a look," no "sorry, give us a chance to correct the damage." And it's actually NOT normal to pay for a service to improve the appearance of your skin and for it to get worse...or damaged long term as I fear. Skin Spa's website says that they select a peel for each customer individually --skin with melanin is prone to pigmentation issues if esthetician's aren't careful so this claim is in large part what encouraged me to try this place out -- but this is clearly NOT true.
This was hands down the WORST results I've ever had from any facial procedure and unfortunately it seems that I'll be dealing with the results for some time.
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE OF GOING TO THE SKIN SPA.
very professional, beautiful esthetician – I've recently visited the skin spa for a treatment. I have to say that my esthetician was gorgeous and I fell in love with her. If I wasn't married with two kids I would probably want to marry her. (TMI I know) The treatment was amazing!!!!. I've been to other spa's but the skin spa is in a totally different league. The prices are very affordable, yet the quality of the treatments is superb. My esthetician was very knowledgeable in skincare and of the treatment. I highly recommend the skin spa to anyone looking to find quality skincare at a very affordable price.
Am now healing from the facial – The staff is friendly and the place is clean, but that's where it stops. I went in for the special microdermabrasion and facial special. The microdermabrasion is very quick and OK. I've had better. Also, my sinuses felt gritty from the microderm dust. The worst is the facial. The extraction left me with three scabs on my face. I have sensitive skin and have had other facials, but never had scabs on my face. I'm so embarrassed. I'm never going back.
Went down hill really fast – I used to love Skin Spa, but it seems they have grown faster than they can handle. They offer deals on Groupon, Living Social and through their own site now and unfortunately, their quality has dramatically decreased.
I can no longer get appointments with the person I want, even if I call a month in advance. And the last time I went, they changed the waxer on my without calling to tell me. She was terrible, didn't ask how much I wanted off, took way more off (and at an insane, uneven angle) than I wanted and I was digging bits out of wax from my nether region for days.
The red headed receptionist is the king of rude. So sad, but am really going to have to stop going here.
