Better late, than never! – I would like to add my own review of this establishment. My mother first brought me to this skincare salon was I was afflicted with severe acne as a teenager. She was the only person who cleared up my complexion and taught me the ground rules for proper skincare. After my acne cleared up I thought I didn?t need Ilona's services anymore (by the way, they went by the name "Ilona of Hungary" when my mother first brought me there). Fast-forward 20+ years and I'm married with children and the bearer of a hideously older than necessary face. I decide to visit my local department store and purchase one of those uber expensive creams. If you can name it, I bought it (i.e., La Mer, Le Prairie, etc., etc.) and my skin still didn?t look a day younger. So, as I am driving by Ilona's salon in Cherry Creek North for the umpteenth time, I decide--for whatever reason--to go inside. To my astonishment the Grande Dame herself is still there and even remembers me. She asks how my mother is doing (she passed away recently) and I almost break down and start crying right there. Ilona herself is a vision, with a complexion one can only dream of having at her age. She looks better than I do, I exclaim. I share an engaging conversation with her and give her the Reader's Digest version of my life up to that point, and she says, "Let me check your skin." Really? She took me to one of her treatment rooms, examined my skin and diagnosed all sorts of maladies and invited me to stay for a facial (my original esthetician was long gone by then). Since that fateful re-encounter, I can say that my skin has never looked and felt better in two decades. I religiously use her products and maintain a fairly regular schedule of facials (when I have the time). Miss Ilona, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm now taking my two daughters to you and hope to impress upon them how important their skin health is and hopefully follow in my footsteps.
Best deep-pore cleansing in the city – I am a second generation client of Miss Ilona's (the owner of the company). My mother was a client of hers at their New York City salon, and after I moved to Denver started to visit her skincare salon in Cherry Creek. Trust me when I say that the facials and services at ILONA are the best anywhere, including New York. My mother said I should never trust my skin to anyone except Miss Ilona, and for the last decade plus that exactly what I have done. My esthetician, Eli, who has been with the company for ages was personally trained by Miss Ilona eons ago and has the best hands in the business. You mainly find European trained Estheticians here, which I like. Miss Ilona is an icon in the beauty world (who would have thought she's based in Denver not Manhattan). Before you run to a dermatologist go visit ILONA in Cherry Creek. I recommend her services and products to everyone who asks me how I keep my skin looking so beautiful. Nice side note: I recently saw her skincare products in a major UK department store. It?s nice to know I?m in good company. Again, would highly recommend to anyone!
