Eyebrow Genius – I never thought it made much of a difference where I had my eyebrows "done," but Janeen's careful, attentive artistry left me with the best eyebrows EVER! The whole experience was relaxing and enjoyable -- sort like yoga without the work! Don't be fooled by her humble studio -- Jannen is a true artist and could be charging you triple at some swanky Beverly Hills salon.
Best facial I've ever had! – In a word, okay, two words, SIMPLY AMAZING! I've had facials at other salons and spas before coming to Sonata and my skin usually looks great for a few days. I went to Janeen and my skin glowed for several weeks. She doesn't have a one-size fits all standard facial for everyone - she spends time asking you questions about your skin, skin care ritual, products you use, diet, lifetsyle, etc and examines your skin carefully before deciding what type of facial you need and what products to use. She spends her time making sure she does a great job and it never feels rushed. The products she uses are fantastic and she sent me home with some great samples which kept my skin looking great for even longer. I'm hooked ! I'm pretty picky and hate wasting money on beauty splurges unless it makes a noticeable difference. Sonata Skin Care is well worth it. She's also fantastic at shaping eyebrows - tinting too.
Sets the standard for facials – I just had a facial from Janine today and it was the best I've ever received by far. She sets the standard for how facials should be done. She paid attention to the smallest details about my skin and customized the treatment just for me. Plus she gives an amazing massage. I'm a massage therapist and I was thinking of how I could incorporate some of her techniques into my massage because they felt great! She loves what she is doing and it flows through her. Plus her space is very comfortable and serene. I'm so glad I met Janeen and I'm looking forward to future sessions. Plus I can't wait to get my brows done. Do yourself a favor and book a session with her, you'll be so pleased with the results. My skin is glowing!
Better than a Massage! – I went to Janeen for a Facial and it was truly better than a massage! She is terrific and it was such a relaxing experience. My skin is still glowing and the aromatherapy oils were divine! I would highly recommend her!
Your Eyebrows and Skin will be singing beautifully after going to Janeen. – I have been going to Janeen for the past 8 years since I moved to the LA area. I happened upon her by chance and I have to say that she is the best in my book. I have gone to others in the past 8 years, usually because I am on vacation or gift certificates from friends, but everyone pales in comparison. Her style suits me and her perfection suits my skin and my eyebrows. In fact I buy friends gift certificates to go to Janeen and they usually end up staying with her long term, even if they have to DRIVE a bit and some all the way from THE WEST SIDE. :)
Her hands are magical and her spirit soothing and my favorite treatments? Her eyebrow sculpting is divine, as your newly sculpted eyebrows will also experience a fabulous massage...not to mention the massage of compliments you will get from others. I also have a thing for extractions and Janeen is thorough and hygenic.
Janeen is the all weather facialist and treats my skin through my pregnancies to good old fashion stress, to uv exposure.
CONS? Seriously I can't think of one!
Great Facial – Amazing Facial. Janeen has magic hands..
The experience was unlike any other. I was so relaxed that I was shocked when my treatment was over. I came out of there feeling so pure and refreshed unlike any other treatement I have ever had in my years of world travel.
Would highly recommend to anyone!
Excellent Service and Ambiance – 2002 I moved to Los Angeles and after several months of searching to find a place for facials and eyebrows I came across an ad in the Entertainment Weekly "Best Eyebrows in Los Angeles". I thought okay -sounds good. The following week I found myself in Sherman Oaks where I met the owner Janeen Rae-Heller - warm and inviting energy. I then step into this beautiful, tranquiil space and immediately I knew that things were going to be okay. After 30 min my brows were trimmed, waxed and styled to perfection. The detailing that she does I had never experience before and when I thought it was over I had
a wonderful rose water eye rub that I knew made my eyes not only look better but felt better. I thought the price had to be more than I was told and it wasn't. It has been five years and I have never stop going not only for my brows but also for facials. The facial takes around 90 minutes and every possible thing that needs to be done, masking, exfoliating, massage, etc is done using products filled with natural ingredients - Janeen who lives a life of understanding natural ingredients ensure nothing but the very best products are used on your sink. Any service at Sonata Skin Care done my Janeen will be an experience that you will be repeating over and over and over again. Try it and you will see. Charmaine
Janeen is awesome – Janeen offers not only an excellent facial, but also a very special, relaxing ambiance. You will feel like you've gone on a mini-vacation while you are in her studio. I highly recommend you visit Sonata Skincare!
Best skin care and self care! – Janeen at Sonata Skin Care provides not only excellent skin care treatments--too many to mention here---but also a personal level of regard for her clients that can best be described as supreme self-care for those who treat themselves.
When you visit Janeen you find that you have not only cared for your appearance but also your total well being, and you carry those good effects with you like a glow, inside and out, wherever you go, long after your appointment!
Sonata Skin Care is where your skin gets Everything, & Nothing that's not perfect for it! – Janeen will only do what my skin asks for.
My favorite, Arctic Algae...I want it all the time.
She says she'd love to do it, but my skin.. ......it wouldn't be best for my skin today.
I'm disappointed, until she does other magical stuff to my face.
She adds herbs to the products she sells, herbs that are good just for me!
She is also a perfectionist when it comes to brows.
I moved to La Jolla and there's a "Natural Facial" Place, 1 block from my home.
I will only get facials when I visit L A, and that's not often enough, but, my face belongs to Janeen.
This is my first review, but I had to tell anyone who cares about someone who listens to your skin, and makes you look and feel younger, has to go to Sonata skin Care.
