LePa is without a doubt the best spa in Austin! When you first walk in, you automatically feel relaxed and welcomed. The facility in clean, modern, and quiet. All of the estheticians are professional, informative, and nice. I have gone to Manja for facials, electrolysis and eyebrow microblading for many years. I would never trust my skin to anyone else besides Manja and her team. She is an expert in her field and an absolute gem. (1) Facials- She can identify and treat all different skin types and conditions to make your skin happy and healthy. There is always a noticeable difference in my skin from when I walk in to when I leave. Manja is gentle, communicative, and detail oriented. Without a doubt, she consistently gives facials above the rest. (2) Electrolysis - With other electrolysis places, I consistently got acne after the treatments due to the poor technique. I have yet to have a single pimple with Manja. She gets every single unwanted hair quickly and pain free. (3) Eyebrow Micro blading - I cannot express how happy I am with this service. I have gotten compliments from everyone I have been around (men and women) for the past couple of weeks. The procedure was pain-free and quick. Manja was informative, adaptable, and thoughtful. Not only did she match the color, but she shaped them perfectly. Overall, Manja is a perfectionist which shows in her work. She always gives 110% and delivers beyond expectations. All of the estheticians will treat you like family. They devote themselves to make sure you walk away looking your best. I cannot express how highly I think of Manja and LePa.

Sarah is awesome!!!

----------A letter to the owner------------

Dear Manja-

I wanted to write you to tell you about the wonderful experience I had with Sarah this evening. I am sure you already know this but you have an amazing woman working for you! She went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, comfortable and informed—literally working with me for an extra hour and never making me feel rushed or inconvenient. If only all service providers were as poised and professional! Sarah was incredibly hospitable, patient, informative, honest, and you can tell she truly cares about her clients and their wellbeing. It has been quite some time since I’ve received such wonderful customer service. Never have I felt so compelled to let a business owner know about my experience but I feel that such exquisite customer service should be recognized. Sarah was such a gem and I will certainly be coming to LePA Skincare for future services and will most definitely be referring friends to your beautiful establishment. Thank you again and I look forward to future visits.

Sincerely,
Kristin

Excellent Facials, Electrolysis, and Massage!

Manja and her staff at LePA skincare have never ceased to amaze me!

I met Manja over 5 years ago and started receiving facials at her first incarnation of LePA skincare, (LePA meaning ""Beautiful""). Right away it was obvious that her passion for skincare and knowledge of all the inner and outer workings of skin is her specialty. Growing up in the spa industry, (her mom owns spas in Europe), and being taught the true meaning of skincare since childhood, her experience and gift for educating and relaxing you are sooo apparent. When you meet Manja and have the wonderful joy of experiencing one of her signature facials, you will have no doubt you are in good hands. Her touch and skill comes from the heart, and it speaks to you in a way that is so genuine. There are no false pretenses here, a service from Manja and her staff comes from the true love of spas and pampering that women in Europe have embraced for years.

Do yourself a favor and treat your face and/or body to one of the many services LePA has to offer. In addition to regular facials, I get a once a month massage at LePA, where they use medium to deep massage techniques to relieve my sore back muscles. Not only do I get the gifted hands of her massage therapists, but they combine the use of their endermologie machine to create suction and loosen the knots and tissues that are so tightly wound in my back.

Every time I leave LePA, after two hours of pure bliss, I literally start counting down the days until my next appointment. Soon, Manja and her staff are going to expand again, and start offering body treatments, like wraps and scrubs. Sign me up! I will be a willing participant in every service LePA has to offer, because for years Manja has impressed me with her knowledge, true love, and understanding of quality spa services!

Thank you LePA!!! xoxo

European Facial with Texas Hospitality!

Lepa Skincare is different; wonderful, private, deep & relaxing. Once I heard about a ""European Facial with Texas Hospitality"", I was intrigued. Manja exceeded all expectations. And mine are pretty high, having had facials through out my life in 3 continents and in various Austin locations. The facial and extractions were top notch, but I think Manja also sets her self apart with the massage and her passion for skin care. For her, it's a way of life. I also bought some Kozmetika Afrodita products which I'm really pleased with. I'll be back, for sure. Great space, knowledge staff, personal attention and fantastic product line. (Oh, and I hope to bring my Dad there, feel it's an appropriate space for men hesitant about spas).

Great Spa

I have had 3 electrolysis treatments at LePA with great results. The technicians have always been on time and treated me in a highly professional manner. The equipment is state of the art. The decor is beautiful and the facility is immaculate. Manja provides excellent customer service, and that is of the utmost importance to me!
I am planning to have other services provided there now, too.

Bad Experience using Groupon

I bought a groupon from LePa last time- same offer $49 for a facial. I called to book an appointment and the phone # listed on the groupon was out of service. Ok so I call the number listed on the website and a very friendly sounding “Melissa” answered the phone. She told me she was not in front of her appointments book so if I could please call her back the next day- then asked me if I “happened to be one of those groupons”. Well I called her twice the next day, and again during the week. Never answered the phone and never returned my calls, even though I had left detailed messages. I informed groupon of my experience and they refunded my purchase. I can’t say anything about the service because I never even got that far! Be careful friends….

Great Spa, Amazing Customer Service!

There are not enough words to express how great Manja is. She is so knowledgeable, and a complete doll. She made me feel right at home from the moment I stepped into her spa.
Recently I went to Manja for a pre-wedding facial. I wanted to get the ""glowing bride"" look. She walked me through the process step-by-step, and she was amazingly gentle on my skin (which is very sensitive). During the facial she gave me the most amazing massage. I have never been more relaxed!! It was such a treat to be able to take some time for myself. The facial left my skin looking and feeling great, while the message left me relaxed.
I also had Manja do my makeup for my wedding. I wanted a soft natural look. She used her Barbara Bort makeup and it was perfect. My skin looked flawless, without looking like I had makeup caked on. I loved it so much I bought the foundation, bronzer, eyeshadow and lipstick!
Manja is great and I recommend her to anyone looking to spa and skincare treatments!

WOW. And that's an understatement.

I have so many good things to say about Manja as an esthetician and LePA as a Skincare salon! When I first met Manja, it was in a group setting and I was impressed by what came across as a genuine interest in helping people understand the importance of skin care. Manja speaks from the heart, she believes in what she does, and she wants her knowledge of skin care to make a difference for people. What I know now, after an unbelievably relaxing facial at LePA Skincare, is that Manja is truly an expert... a visionary... a leader... and I really believe that Manja’s unique education (she trained in medical school) and experience (she co-owned two spas in Slovenia and began working in the spa environment as a young girl) sets her apart from any esthetician or spa around!

I can’t say enough about the results of my treatment-- my skin was glowing and I felt nourished and rejuvenated. And unlike other facials, my experience with Manja was that I was not only getting excellent treatment in a comfortable and beautiful environment-- I was also getting an education. In my session with her, Manja hand selected each product based on the condition of my skin that day and told me why she chose to use one product versus another. She even told me about the science and chemistry behind why certain products should or should not be used together. And one of the best parts of the facial was that I never felt that I was being “sold” on anything-- I was truly being educated.

Not only did I feel like I was her most important client, I felt as if time stood still for the entire appointment-- Manja took her time with every aspect of the session and did it with the utmost integrity. There’s nothing like the feeling that someone is actually thinking and acting for your benefit, even if it means going out of their way, or spending more time to do it well. She even took the time to check in with me the following day to see how my skin was doing!

I could go on and on about my experience! The bottom line is that Manja and LePA Skincare offers the best products, services, experience, and education around. I highly recommend her services and wish her all the success in the world!

LePA Skincare-- Amazing.

Getting a facial by Manja is an amazing experience. It is a joy to watch anyone who is extremely good at what they do. Much like a professional athlete or a musician, except with Manja you get to experience it rather than watch it. When I walked up to the spa I was nervous because I didn't know what to expect but immediately felt at ease in Manja's presence. She is so nurturing and knowledgeable that you intuitively know you are in good hands. I had some problem areas on my skin that I saw a dermatologist for that was kind of getting better, however, it left me with quite a bit of discoloration. One session with Mania, and the next day my skin had a nice even tone all around. I really couldn't believe it. You can ask my wife, I kept looking at my face in the mirror in disbelief and awe. Not only did my face look great but I was extremely relaxed from the neck, shoulder, arm, hand and face massage. Since I now have been educated about the importance of healthy skin and the overall stellar experience, I am trying to fit facials into the budget! Thank you Manja!

Good Bye Scarf!

After over a decade of hiding myself behind a dazzling array of scarves, I found Manja. She has literally changed my life. In June of 2009 I started going through treatments with her and 9 months later I can see the finish line coming in the next few months. Manja has been nothing but open and honest about what I could expect-how long, how much etc and she has not let me down. Don't be hide another day....call Manja NOW and make an appointment to change your life.

Manja works miracles for the skin!

I've suffered from adult cystic acne for years. I started seeing Manja about 5 months ago, and my skin has literally been transformed. I've always thought that I was doomed to have bad skin, but not anymore. Manja is incredibly experienced and professional. Point blank: the girl knows skin. I've never been one for the dermatologist because of the poison they prescribe ex: acutane, etc. Manja has the ability and resources to correct skin problems without being too harsh or aging the skin. As long as we're both in Austin, I'll be trusting her with all of my skin care needs. Love you Manja!

Helped My Skin Tons

Nothing had worked on my skin problems, including presriptions from the dermatologist, so a friend referred me to LePA. Manja was very helpful and informative from the beginning.

After two facials at LePA, my skin was completely transformed. Almost all of my acne was cleared. I am a frequent client at LePA and I recommend Manja to all of my friends and acquaintances.

Great Place

I have been seeing Manja at LePA Skincare for more than a year and there is no one in Austin I would trust more to do my electrolysis. She never takes shortcuts just to save a dime, and I know she will never take a risk that could leave my skin looking blotchy or damaged. She invests in the highest quality equipment and pure and natural European skincare products. She evaluates my skin's reaction after each treatment and before the next one to make sure I never have a negative reaction. LePA has a beautiful and comfortable waiting room and spacious private treatment room, both of which are always immaculately clean. She takes the time to personally schedule my next appointmentand I always receive a personal phone call from Manja herself to remind me of my appointment times. She always has time for her clients- she even worked late one night to make sure I was ready for my wedding.

Manja is more than a business owner and aesthitician, she has become my friend. I can't say enough GREAT things her! She is the ultimate skincare professional. I feel equally comfortable recommending LePA Skincare both to strangers and to my closest friends and family. You will always have a positive experience at LePA!

Lepa Skincare

One of the things that has always impressed me about Manja is her total professionalism. She has been up front and honest about any questions that I have asked, whether it has been about the length of treatments, what to expect during treatments, or questions that I have had about my skin in general. Manja has many years of experience and only uses the very best equipment. Her office is clean and nicely decorated and there is always an atmosphere of calm and relaxation. Manja is always pleasant and makes you feel like she really cares about you personally.

Professional, highly skilled and reasonably priced

Monya is truly a professional and has extensive education in skin care. The facials are fabulous and reasonably priced. She continues to add services (like endermologie) to her business. She offers electrolysis and uses the most advanced system for hair removal. I have had electrolysis before but it did not work....until I went to Monya!!
