Bad Bad Bad: two months in and the lines are back!

I dropped a nice bit of cash at this place. Probably more than I had to spend, but the good doc was personable and provided a very thorough explanation of his recommendations based on what I stated were my concerns.

The procedure hurt like a mother, but I wanted to treat myself. I am not new to office procedure such as these (botox, fillers) and I've been looking for a place to keep returning back to, especially if I got good results and trusted the place not to just want to make a buck.

Unfortunately, I cannot help but feel that this place was desperate for my money because I'm ready to go back for more (but not from this place!). The botox must be completely watered down or something because the lines in my forehead are coming back quickly, and mind you, I'm not a novice. I'm not a fan of a paralyzed face, and the ability to allow animation while targeting those wrinkles is certainly an art. I'm disappointed because I really wanted to like this place and work with them together to help me age gracefully without the knife.

The facial did nothing more than I could have done at home. When i got home, I finished all of the extractions that were left behind. What did she do anyway??

They sold me a product that was $$ and wrong for my face, yet wouldn't stand behind it when I brought it to their attention.

Bottom line, very disappointing. I can't believe they would do this knowing I am a customer who will come back. Instead, I will pay some other place to do what I hoped to get from Skin Med Spa. Give me good service, results and honesty, and I would have been a loyal customer with a credit card. Too bad

Gauging because they can

While SKIN is nicely decorated I did not find staff friendly or professional. Beyond that the nurse stated that her services were more expensive than one of the most esteemed dermatologists in the city because she came from LA where they got away with charging more. Thus at least for injectables and botox, go to Dr. Matarasso.

Great spa!!!

I went to Skn spa for botox treatment. I was impressed with the very nice, clean office. The doctor was very professional and knowledgeable. I was also impressed by the prices they quoted me. Much lower than I was prepared to pay. I will be going back and cannot say enough good things about it!

SKIN Medical Spa

I went to SKIN Medical Spa for laser removal on my full legs, underarms & bikini.. I will have my last treatment for my full legs very soon and I can not be more happy with my results. Underarms & bikini I only had 2 treatments so it is very early to say anything, but I have very high hopes. I just wished I found this Spa sooner. It is worth every $$$.

Great service, friendly staff!

Highly recommended! Best spa in the Bay Area. The staff is very helpful and informative, and the prices are reasonable for the quality of the services provided.

The Best of the Best

SKIN is the best in every category. The office is clean and beautiful. The staff is friendly and helpful. The treatments are as pain free as possible and I feel that I am in good medical hands. I am so thrilled with my laser hair removal! I have done bikini and underarms and it is awesome. I no longer worry about wearing a tank top or bathing suit and having shadow or forgetting to shave.

Dr. Colvin is also an artist when it comes to botox. He can give you an eyebrow lift with just a shot! He's the best. Run, don't walk, over to SKIN for a treatment. You won't be disappointed.

Great Hair Removal Experience

I visited the spa for laser hair removal, bikini and underarms. I was mostly concerned about hyperpigmentation since I have olive skin. I am almost done with the treatments, 2 more left. And have been very satisfied. I like that the treatment is relatively pain free. I think it was less painful then a wax. I am just sad I waited so long to get it done. The staff is friendly and attentive. The facility is clean and relaxed. I would recommend it to my friends.

There aren't very many dr's appointments that I look forward to, but SKIN Medical Spa is just that great. From the first time I walked in the door the staff made me feel so comfortable and even pampered, and not just some of the staff, every single person. It's a delightful experience despite the less than delightful concerns that brought me here. Struggling with adult acne has made me less confident and very self-conscious, so the pleasant staff put me at ease right away. They were fantastic at explaining all my options and going over in detail the pros and cons to each as well as answering all my questions (and I had plenty). I have been extremely pleased with the level of care, professionalism and knowledge at SKIN as well as the beautiful office and excellent service. I would highly recommend them to others.

Best Skin/medical spa!

I am very pleased with my experience, and would recommend SKN spa to all my friends and family. I contacted SKN/Dr. Colvin because I have always had adult acne and skin discoloration, I wanted my skin to look nice for my upcoming wedding. Imagine how pleased I was when over the period of 5 months, my skin was visibly transformed. Now, I don't wear makeup, so many friends and co-workers tell me my skin is ""glowing, smooth and clear"". Dr. Colvin and his staff are personable and professional, they immediately put me at ease. I never felt like ""just another client"". I have had IPL and chemical peel treatments and couldn't be happier with the results. The first time I went to SKN, for a consult, I was so unhappy with my skin. Now I am proud to say with the regimen Dr. Colvin has prescribed, I don't feel like I have to cover my face with make-up. I never felt pressured to purchase products or make future appointments. Thanks SKN! E Detrich

Pros: Knowledgeable, friendly and articulate, and best of all, you see visible results!
Cons: parking can be a challenge but well worth it.

I really like this place!

I had a complimentary consultation (unheard of) at SKN with the medical staff (Dr. Colvin, nurse, medical esthetician) . I was told what my options were and never felt overhwhelmed with information, pressured to buy anything or pressured to book an appointment. Everyone was so nice and knowlegeable. I have since booked an appointment, but really appreciated the professionalism of the entire staff during my first visit.
I really like this place. Heather B.
