Your search for top notch skin care stops at SKN Medical Spa – If you want a humdrum impersonal experience with a distracted employee then I recommend going to a hotel spa. If you are looking to have your skin transformed by an entire staff who actually cares about your results, look no further than SKN Medical Spa. Valerie is an articulate, personable and well seasoned professional who puts you at ease the moment you sit down. Dr. Rob, Katie and the rest of the staff are phenomenal, accommodating and sincere. I have never felt like "just another client/customer". In fact the entire staff knew who I was when I arrived for my second appointment. How many places can you say that about? I have had IPL, deep poor and chemical peel treatments and couldn't be happier with my results. The first time I went to SKN, for a consult, I was almost in tears I was so unhappy with my skin (adult acne). Now I am proud to say with the regimen Dr. Rob and Valerie have me following I don't feel like I have to cover my face with make-up, my hair or "strategically place my hands" to cover embarrassing blemishes. And who takes the time to follow up several days after your treatment? SKN does! And the best part, you will NEVER feel pressured to purchase products or make future appointments EVER, period end of story.
Amazing Deep Pore Facial with Valerie – I have gotten facials on cruise ships, lovely spas and throughout Europe and nothing compares to the medical deep pore facial I got with Valerie. She went far beyond any other facial I have ever gotten with her knowledge, sonic deep pore cleanser, diamond microbrasion, extractions and healing masque. My skin has never been so squeaky clean- ever! She is very personable, professional, and I felt like she really cared about my needs and making my treatment the very best. Whenever I come back to SF I am booking another facial with Valerie. She really is amazing!
SKN - I thank you! – A warm thanks to the staff, and to Dr. Colvin, Katie, Sandy and Valerie for having made my experience and skin treatments so wonderful. All of my treatments have been exceptional. From laser hair removal to my deep pore cleansing skin treatments. I now have clean, clear FABULOUS skin. I love this place!
Very impressed. – I have to say I was quite pleased when I entered SKN. I was greeted with a smile and immediately catered to. The front reception staff were friendly and efficient. Both Katie and Dr. Colvin are very nice. Great environment. I had a wonderful, thorough skin consultation with Valerie the Esthetician, and immediately decided to book an appointment to come back and see her. Not only did I walk away with a clear understanding with information of what would work best for my skin, I truly felt that I was in good hands. Since having skin treatments with her, I have highly recommended her and SKN to my friends and co-workers. It really is a great place.
Valerie - Best Medical Esthetician! – SKN rocks!!! I went to SKN because in the past, I'd had (large) clogged pores, hyperpigmentation and very oily skin. I've had several deep pore cleansing treatments and peels at SKN with Valerie, the Esthetician, and my skin has never looked better. Valerie is very professional and incredibly knowledgeable about skin disorders and skincare. She has never bruised my skin while doing extractions and I enjoy every treatment. She calls me after each treatment, has recommended an excellent skincare regimen and has really taken the time to address all of my skincare concerns. She's the best!
NP Sandy and SKN – SKN is great, and the best thing about it, IMO, is their Nurse Practitioner Sandy. She was was so professional, made me feel at ease, and did a great job with my treatment today. I will be going back to see her for a few more treatments - I can't believe all the great things that can be done to improve my appearance and confidence! I would recommend her (and SKN) to anyone that was was considering cosmetic treatment. To boot - the place is beautiful as well!!
Nice people, Great work – I ahve had several sessions of botox and chemical peel here and every thing always went the way it should. I'm happy. It's not cheap, but hey, welcome to SF!
Union Street skin care clinic fuses cosmetic dermatology with day spa atmosphere. – In Short
Light pinewood floors, suede-covered chaise lounges and throw pillows with bright, funky prints evoke the feel of an ultramodern day spa, but the focus here is medical skin care, not relaxing rubdowns. Aesthetic treatments--from Botox to restylane wrinkle reduction--are administered by the board-certified physician-owner. Dermatologist-approved makeup and skin care products by True Mineral Makeup, Obagi and La Roche-Posay are also available for sale.
Wish I had found SKN Sooner! – I saw a general theme in the reviews I read about SKN Mediacl Spa before I made my first appointment. It seemed like several individuals had been coping with skin conditions for quite some time and had achieved success from their treatments and services at SKN. I made an appointment for a consultation. Dr. Colvin was great in educating me about the options that were available to me. Let me just say that I had sought medical help 15 years ago and had been told that there was really nothing to be done for my adult acne. Now, after one week of following Dr. Colvin's treatment my skin looks clearer than it ever has and I'm in my 50's. My family and friends all notice a marked improvement in my skin and I haven't even started the main part of his treatment. If your story sounds similar don't wait any longer. I feel very fortunate that I found SKN, Dr. Colvin and his great staff.
Just go! – SKN offers the same treatments as many other clinics and spas, but you can be sure that at SKN you will get consistently good results from procedures that are appropriate for you, executed by a talented doctor using superior products in a clean, serene environment . Dr, Colvin's work is clearly working, because even though I modeled in Paris 15 long years ago, I can use the same photo portfolio. I'm still active in various facets of the entertainment world and wouldn't trust my skin to just any spa. Robb is pleasant, patient, very knowledgeable and informative, a good troubleshooter, and respectful of my budget. He understands the limitations of products and treatments and is realistic when answering questions.
Katie's knowledge is vast, but she is never inclined to push a product, much less a whole line. What I have bought there works.
The staff is competent, courteous and hospitable. I once changed an appointment 3 times in 3 phone calls in about 5 minutes and the reception I got was cheerful and without the slightest hint of annoyance.
While cosmetic treatments can get expensive, the cost is often offset by a promotional discount at SKN.
