BEST AESTHETICIAN (KRYSTINA) IN NYC!!!!!. I've had acne my ENTIRE life!!! I've tried just about every acne product known to man. I've seen several dermatologists and even got a colon cleanse. Nothing worked until I walked into Escape Spa and met Krystina. She is a miracle worker. Krystina has a pleasant disposition. She explains the entire process and truly knows and understands her vocation. When I started getting treatments, I had pimples all over my face (huge cysts, blackheads, whiteheads), my skin was dehydrated and I had dark spots everywhere. Now, the huge cysts are GONE!!! My skin is so soft and smooth, the dark marks are starting to lighten and my pores aren't as clogged. My skin has done a complete 180... all thanks to Krystina. Every time I get a facial, I leave with my skin feeling smooth, refreshed and clean. I rarely have breakouts... and when I do (usually around my cycle) the pimples aren't as big and I get only one or two... and they quickly go away. If you have severe acne and are at your wits end trying to clear it up... GO SEE KRYSTINA!!!!! She is worth every penny!!! I've been going for nearly a year and I never miss a facial. Every month... I'm calling Escape Spa... making an appt. No product on the market (prescription, proactiv, etc) can do what Krystina can do. She has the midas touch for healing skin. RUN... DON'T WALK... to Escape Spa!!!! Not only does Krystina give AWESOME facials... the entire staff is SUPERB!!! Aljcia is the person to see for waxing. She is the only person I trust. She lessens the pain and makes you very comfortable. Even the receptionist is personable and professional. I highly recommend Escape Spa, especially for the facials. Krystina has changed my life and I will be forever grateful for what she has done for me!!!! GO TO ESCAPE SPA... AND ESCAPE TO PARADISE.
Diamond in the rough.... There IS a vaild reason why the rating for this place is so high. It is very well deserved as this place is nothing short of wonderful...a true diamond in the rough. Do not be put off by the appearance of the entrance at street level. Inside on the 2nd floor Escape is a beautiful urban oasis; an extremely relaxing place. Just a note, main nail tech, Julia, is deaf, which might put a few off initially but she is very warm, gentle and reads lips and thus will have no trouble understanding you. I'm new to the city and my search for a place to get my nails done is over :-).
Best Spa Ever!. I am happy to say that I found Krystina again! Excited for these ladies who opened their own spa and it looks fabulous! Krystina is the best waxer in NYC, hands down. Please support my ladies and stop paying crazy spa prices!
Wonderful Healing Facials.
I have been seeing Christina for facials since 9 months before my wedding day (I am now married for 2 years). She truly transformed my skin. I began seeing her for acid peels and facials every 6 to 9 weeks. She did what no dermatologist could ever do for me - she dramatically reduced my breakouts, healed scarring damage and made my skin baby soft. I have never been so thankful. It was the best pre-wedding investment I made. My skin was radiant and everyone at the wedding told me so.
Christina is gentle, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She is very skilled at her trade and I respect and trust her. Whether you are a bride or just someone who wants to look and feel good - go see Christina at Escape Spa.
Plus - the environment at Escape is just that - an escape. Don't be turned off by the local - be thankful - it helps the owners keep prices fair, but the service is all that, and more, of the uptown spas.
Friendly staff but terrible facial.
My fiance and I were excited to try a new spa with such great reviews.......sadly our experience was more unpleasant than pleasurable. We scheduled an early Valentine's spa retreat each getting a massage and facial. We all know when you have a good facial you should leave the spa with little or no evidence of the extraction process, even after my massage and still today....... it looks like a flock of pigeons were feeding off my entire face (Mind you my face didn't have much to pick on in the first place, just your normal T-zone extractions were needed).The process was so incredibly painful, my fiance even said that he felt like she was going to rebreak his nose.....She used far too much pressure and pinched the skin so hard you can almost see fingernail imprints.The massage was fine except that I was freezing for the whole 60minutes.
At the end my facialist even brought me back to her room, she knew she had done a terrible job and GAVE me a huge tube of healing cream to take home with me. I would not recommend this spa to anyone.
Truly the best spa in New York. I wouldn't go anywhere else!. You'd never know it from the outside but if you walk by Escape Spa on 31st street you've just passed up the best kept secret in New York. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. I've been going to one of the owners for years and I wouldn't trust anyone else in the city. The services offered include a number of treatments that you would pay much more for at more well known spas, like Bliss or Oasis and yet the quality is just as good if not better. I can't recommend them highly enough and encourage anyone who asks me to try Escape.
Worth the trip from anywhere. I have been a customer of the former spa that Alicia worked at and it has been nothing but a pleasant experience inspite of the fact that Escape is not around the corner. Escape is a clean,reasonably priced ,state of the art spa where you are greeted with a smile and your appointment time honored . I would not trust my painless bikini wax or mani & pedi to any other hands! Just go!
BEST SPA in NYC!!!. Followed these two lovely ladies (Krystina & Alicia) from the previous spa because they are such experts at what they do (Facials, Waxing, Body Treatments). Escape is beautiful, the atmosphere is serene, the service is wonderful and the location is actually more convenient than the previous trek to Soho where I often had to walk on the street due to the overcrowded sidewalks. I look forward to purchasing my holiday gift certificates there and can't wait for my friends to try the services. It truly is the best spa in town!!!
A true escape....
Escape Spa is an absolutely wonderful escape from all the hustle and bustle of NYC life. This very relaxing, clean, and welcoming spa is a great new addition to the relaxation world. All of the staff are SUPER warm and friendly. I felt like I was at home. The waiting lounge is a place you can stay for hours!
I've had several treatments (brazilian, mani/pedi, body treatments, and massaging)...everything 10+! They have great mani/pedi Mon-Wed--$25..CANNOT BEAT THAT! They also participate in Shecky's Week and NYC Spa Week! If you haven't yet escaped from your daily life, do so, you WILL NOT regret it!
Wonderful. I got a really great brazilian wax from Alicia. She was fast, clean, and it looks great. Nice, relaxing spa and again, the wax was really superb at a great price. One of NYC best-kept secrets.
