The perfect place to get a brazillian wax – This is the best place in San Antonio to get a brazillian wax!! The ladies at this place are very friendly and make you feel comfortable. The office is very relaxing. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get a brazillian wax done because you feel comfortable, it is reasonably priced, and the ladies are so nice. Ask for Julie Boyer, she is very knowledgable on hair removal, easy going, and does a great job.
What a great way to start the day. I had the best facial I can remember having. The neck, face and chest massage were an added bonus.
Highly recommend a facial with Julie!!
Awesome location and great staff makes my experience satisfying – The atmosphere is heavenly and my experience during my one hour micro-abrasion session was awesome. The skin specialist took the time before and after treatment to explain the procedure and how it would feel. I felt very comfortable and relax during the entire session. I notice a huge difference following my skin treatment and follow their advice on the numerous skin treatment and products. Would recommend this place to everyone. Dr. Bertoldo and staff are the most professional and well train in my experience.
Awesome party events for clients! – I went in for my standard eyebrow wax today which of course was awesome! But I got about 5 invitations for their big event this Thursday - you get 40% off services and 20% off prodcuts (which included injectables!) Hello pouty lips I've always wwanted! Check it, give them a call, Emily said just to stop by! Sweet, totally going.
Don't be afraid of waxing! great staff and atmosphere – My girlfriend got me talked into getting my chest waxed after she'd been in for a bikini wax with Julie. Apparently Rachelle has moved to a salon in San Marcos (which was who'd ripped out my wax hair the last time) so I was a little iffy feeling about it. All fears set aside: Julie is remarkable! Of course I had my lovely girlfriend holding my hand like a baby. Julie did a great job, and I definitely LOVE the work she does on my gf (if you know what I mean) She also hooked me up wtih a mild cleanser to help with some acne issues. This place is at the top of my list! Thanks Jules :-)
Friendly Staff, Great results – I had a facial, botox, and juvederm here in early January. Unbelievably pleased with the botox and facial results.
The juvederm is very natural and I am very happy with the results. Just remember to give the juvederm a few days to calm down (I looked like a freak-duck for a little bit!).
Overall, very nice, great service, and happy with my results.
Good Staff Gone – The place is very pretty but the staff is not constant since they have had staff changes. Was much better and more professional with the original staff. I came with a friend of mine who had treatment sometime last year. She thought she would be repeating the same positive experience she had before. She had Botox for the first time last year but the person doing her Botox was not here any longer. It was not a good experience this time. She will not be coming back and I will not be coming back. I will not recommend any of my friends to come here either. I wish I knew where everyone went.
Overrated, unqualified pushy and over priced. Did I mention pushy – I wish i would of searched around more before I got botox here. I feel permantly scared and will not be getting it again from this place
First of all, I am amazed that you would be scared of Botox - I think you meant to say scarred. Second of all, most educated people do their research before going to a medical office for ANY treatment. Obviously you don't have your facts straight about the physician or aestheticians at The Skin Institute. All of our staff have been professionally trained in the treatments we offer and have many years experience in administering the treatments - probably more years than you've even had receiving Botox. Any medical spa that serves wine to their clients before they receive injections or any other treatment should be reported to the medical board. It is against Texas Medical Board policy to serve alcoholic beverages to a patient undergoing any medical procedure: this includes laser treatments and everything else a medical spa offers. I strongly encourage you to check your spelling and references the next time you "search" for a medical spa. We are happy to not serve your skin care needs.
Great staff, even better service! – Are you looking for an excellent Aesthetician? Then listen to this simple advise, GO SEE RACHELLE! I've been going to Rachelle for services for over 2 years, recommending her to friends for just as long and I can't imagine trusting anyone else to do the amazing job that she does. All the staff over at the Skin Institute of San Antonio are amazing, but Rachelle always goes that extra mile. Every visit is like reuniting with a long lost friend, and she always does an awesome job! Rachelle is passionate about her job, and her clients, and she truly cares that you feel the best you can. If a waxing could actually manage to be a comfortable experience, Rachelle would be the one to achieve that, she at least makes the visit more fun and enjoyable at the very least!
A good wax is a sure thing – I was getting ready to go on a vacation in the Bahamas, so I wanted to get a wax done. I have never had a wax professionally done, let alone a bikini wax and so I was really nervous cuz in general you hear plenty of horror stories. So I started searching and found the Skin Institute, which had great reviews. And boy were they right!
This was place was the greatest. Very nice looking, very friendly customer service when I'd call, but the most important part was the aesthetician, Rochelle. I ended up going with the full Brazillian wax, and she was very supportive, and told me that since it was my first time she knew I might not want to go through with it so she would do it symmetrically. Just little details like that say so much. The atmosphere in the room was very nice and quiet and relaxing, and Rochelle is very professional and experienced so knows the kind've questions to ask and how to read people in order to make you comfortable. She just has a great attitude and does whatever it is that you need to make this the best experience. She was even available to answer questions I had a few days later. There's no sales pressure at all and I didn't consider the prices that outrageous. In fact they seemed comparable to other places I had looked at and if you care about having a guaranteed good experience, its worth it.
I'm going back to get another done today, and I'm not worried at all =).
