Oksana Skin Esthetics
7763 1/2 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
This place is great. Oksana is very sweet and broke down everything that was going on with my skin and let me know possible reasons why it was acting the way it was (it has been acting dehydrated for a few months). Her extractions were by far the most through I have ever had (starts to hurt after a while) but so glad when they are done. The room is cozy and very relaxing. Her moisturizer recommendations were great, my skin is still working to get back to normal, however the facial and moisturizer helped a great deal. Excited to go back.
It's been a week now since I had my facial and my skin still looks and feels great. And when you're middle-aged that's saying a lot. I had the pumpkin peel and a cucumber something with a hydrating spray. It was so relaxing that I would have been happy with just the process. When I saw the results - ahhhhhh. And, this was just 1/2 hour. I would highly recommend this facial. One of the best, I've ever received. I did use a coupon for this service. I will be back as a full-paying customer.
Conscientious and meticulous care, comfortable surroundings, flexible hours, and you feel fabulous when you exit. I just had eyelash extensions put in. For smaller Asian eyes, this, I thought, would be an excercise in futiility. I'm completely pleased with my results and if you want to see details on my experience and the before/after pix, I blogged about it here. I got extensions again the week before my wedding and i was excited with the results. Oksanais a complete professional that is responsive, considerate, and attentive. Not sure why some of the negative reviews exist on Yelp. I mean Oksana has taken appointment requests from me via SMS. If that isn't amazing service, I don't know what is. Maybe people who've never been at Oksana Skin Esthetics before aren't aware that this is a one person shop where Oksana does NOT answer phones or emails in the middle of an appointment (because that would just be rude to the current client) but is fast and responsive in between appointments. Oksana's awesome and I can't endorse her more!

I was looking for a spa to get a regular facial. The spa that I was going to in the past changed owners and I didn't really like the new owner. So, someone recommended Oksana Skin Esthethics. I made an appointment but, when I got there, the esthetician (Oksana), recommended I try ""HOT PAPRIKA DETOX FACIAL"". HOLY MOLY! That was so much better than any facial I have ever had in my life! It left my skin feeling regenerated, refreshed and moisturized. It is such a refreshing feeling. To anyone that hasn't tried an ""HOT PAPRIKA DETOX FACIAL"" treatment yet, I HIGHLY recommend it! It is really relaxing and refreshing!
Oksana Skin Esthetics is WONDERFUL. I've been to my fair share of salons and spas, and this is right up my alley. Oksana is easy going, down-to-earth, and made me feel amazing after having a stressful day. She knows what she's doing, and her little space is comfortable, affordable, and fabulous. The best thing is that Oksana makes you feel comfortable and doesn't pressure you into buying things you don't need, but has great recommendations if you ask her. I would recommend her to anyone for waxing, facials, and any other service that I haven't experienced yet there I'm sure is superb and professional. Definitely give her a try!

I'm pretty sure I have found a new happy place.
From the moment I walked to the door I felt relaxed and welcome. Oksana is charming, and I felt like I was meeting a old friend that I hadn't seen in years, but could just jump right in where we left off.
The salon is clean and comfy. Bright and cheery.
Oksana explained the procedure perfectly. I was so relaxed I seriously did not want to leave.
My eyes looked amazing! And guess what? They still do! I woke up with lovely long lashes.
I cannot wait to go back.

Went in for the third time and had a wonderful experience like always. I am so happy I found someone to beautify me, looking forward to my next treatment. I refer my friends here because I know what they will receive, EXCELLENT hair removal and facials. They will not be sold things they don't need like so many ""salons/spas"" often do, and and their look will be exactly what they want. Place is very clean, and cozy with plenty of parking.
I couldn't agree more with all the other reviews. Oksana is amazing. I booked a facial with her last month and felt like I was transported to some otherworldly place. Completely wonderful. I was even told I was glowing afterwards. And it's great that she doesn't pressure you to buy products unlike all the other facialists I have gone to before. Everything a spa treatment should be!
Every experience I've had at Oksana Skin Esthetics has been amazing! Oksana did a wonderful job shaping my brows that were once completely "hacked" by an old hair dresser. Thanks to her, they now look fabulous! Her facials are out of this world. Relaxing, gentle, and my skin looks and feels absolutely incredible after. I also love that only all natural products are used. Oksana is professional, caring, and I don't trust my skin anywhere else!!! The best part of this is not the compliments I routinely get about how great I look---it's how great I FEEL! and that is why I think OKSANA is the BEST skin expert and truly deserves the tagline an appointment with her "is worth a trip from anywhere! I Highly recommend going to this salon.
I came out of Oksana's salon looking ten years younger. I highly recommend Oksana Skin Esthethics. She got me in on short notice -- 3 days! She responded immediately to my phone call about the appointment. I had no trouble parking nearby and my appointment started right on time. She was very professional and kind throughout! I've never been much of a girlie girl. I have a bit of a laissez-faire attitude towards beauty. I don't exfoliate or use expensive creams, and I don't buy makeup in department stores. As far as makeup goes, I wear only a bit of foundation and transparent lip moisturizer. Even my my standards, my skin has been sadly neglected this past year, and if I'm totally honest, probably since my daughter was born 3 years ago. Oksana smoothed out my neglected skin and hydrated it again. I left her place with my skin looking much more smooth and healthy. I needed a lot of extractions, which she did quite skillfully. She is very thorough and professional. I love it that she owns her own business, too.
I've been going to Oksana Skin Esthetics for over 2 years (4 to 6 times a year). I'm definitely loyal to Oksana. She knows how to treat my skin.
The best part about her facials is that she takes out every single one of my blackheads (poor Oksana). Even though it can be uncomfortable, I appreciate that she devotes most of our appointment clearing up my skin. I've gone to the fancy spas in the city for facials and they usually just take out one or two of your blackheads then spend the rest of the appointment trying to scare you that your skin is going to fall off because you didn't use x, y, z products five years ago while massaging you.
I've bought a couple of several skin care products from Oksana and they work well with my skin. Note that it took me several visits (as well as trying out the samples at home) before I purchased from her. She does not pressure you into buying the products.
The only downside with Oksana Skin Esthetics is that you have to book your appointment ahead of time (I book my next appt. after each session). It's not the type of place to call last minute for an appointment (or drop by). It's okay the wait is worth it.
There are not enough words to describe how grateful I am to have found Oksana at Oksana Skin Esthethicst! All throughout my teenage years I would only breakout during "that time of the month". But as soon as I turned 22 by skin got worse. I would always have at least five active pimples around my chin area. Sometimes they would become cysts. I tried everything on the market, but nothing worked. So I thought about going to a dermatologist but I was a little worried about some of the medications they might prescribe me. Then one day my husband showed me an ad from Groupon for Oksana Skin Esthethicst. I think it was meant to be! After my first facial my skin took a complete 180. I am on my third facial and my skin has never looked better. I will be going back to Oksana for years to come. I would definitely recommend Oksana Skin Esthethics to anybody who is suffering with acne.

I travel about an hour one way to have Oksana treat my skin and my skin couldn't be happier. From the moment I walk in she makes me feel at home. My skin is very sensitive and often changes due to weather,stress,and whatever other nuisances my skin decides to come up with.
Each time she explains the process thoroughly and is always making sure I feel comfortable. She truly enjoys her work and is genuinely concerned about the other person's well being. Oksana has even called me days after the facial to make sure everything went well,which it has. I am at the point today where I do not need to wear a concealer to hide any blemishes. Oksana's facials are the best around and you can't beat the price either.

I have been going to Oksana for 2.5 years now and she is by far the best! My review is for both facials and Brazilian waxing. She is a real professional at what she does. Unfortunately I moved to Long Beach so the drive is a bit far. Because of the distance I have tried a few other places but none have compared. I will drive the 45 minutes for the unmatchable service. The salon has a very luxurious feel without the extreme costs.
Oksana is very nice and friendly and makes the whole process very comfortable. The waxing results are very clean and last a long time.
After every facial my face feels very smooth, soft and clean. The massage and music make the experience very relaxing.
THANK YOU OKSANA!
I consider myself very fortunate to find this place after so many years and so much money spent at the numerous LA spas! I have been going here for about 6 months. Now my skin looks as it never did in my life, with even tone and healthy texture. I always had very dry ultra-sensitive skin very prone to breakouts. When I saw Oksana for the first time she promised to heal my skin, and she actually did and in just couple of months. After three facials friend of mine asked what I have been doing to my skin!
Oksana is highly experienced esthetician. She always approaches my skin with customized facials, catering to the specific needs. She uses different high-tech machines, what I find rear for US. I never ever had any single breakout after she did extractions on me. After each facial my skin is just glowing, can't find any better word for that. Most of the clients here have been seeing her for years, now I definitely know I will be one of them.
I can't recommend this place more. If you want to get a quality skincare with long-term results, come here, you will not get disappointed! Thank you, Oksana!
Oksana specializes in lashes and facials. I arrived with every pore clogged with gunk and a major (uncharacteristic) breakout. Horror of horrors, I had picked some!!! Oksana very gently admonished my picking choice and then continued to give me the best facial I have ever had. Seriously, ever.
I've been to many other salons and spas. I've been around a wee bit, I know that this was very, very good.
Oksana is very calming, gentle, and like her, the studio is serene. Although my facial consisted mainly of (much needed) extractions, I was still relaxed. Oksana ended with a hand and forearm massage-- it was great!
Oksana is very knowledgeable, does NOT push product, and has very flexible hours &amp; she'll answer all of your questions.
Hip, Hip Hurray for Oksana!!!
Went back for a pre-wedding facial, brow waxing and eyelash tinting. I was super scared about eyelash tinting. Oksana helped me not worry about going blind &amp; I now ONLY trust her with my lashes. Every single pore in my nose was cleared. No small feat. Very, very impressed &amp; I didn't even break out after!! If you are getting married, go to Oksana!

I bought deep Pore Cleansing Facial on Groupon and I've been going to Oksana now for about 3 months for facials and waxing. My skin has never looked better! I do have large pores on my nose and tendency to get black heads. All of that has improved tremendously. My skin is clean and looks younger and fresher.
I am going to look into get other treatments Oksana recommends like a chemical peel or doing something for some of the dark spots on my face that have started cropping over the past few years. Oksana is very knowledgeable in skin care and I trust my face to her. She has great product to take home to maintain all the work she does in between appointments.
Oksana’s salon is very clean, cozy, and feels very relaxing and calm. I like its décor. I’m glad I bought Groupon and discovered this nice salon and met Oksana.

I go to Oksana about once a month and I couldn't say enough amazing things about what a great job she does. Not only are her facials relaxing but you see instant results. She does a great job analyzing your skin to make sure the products are appropriate for your skin type and that you get the best results possible. Plus the products are amazing and smell great! If you have been to other spas you will appreciate that she doesn't try to sell you products while you are trying to relax!!!
Also if you are looking for someone to wax your eyebrows Oksana is the BEST. She makes sure that the shape is perfect for your face.
If she ever moved away I would be devastated! I would probably travel to go see her! There really isn't anyone as good as her!

I love this place! I had my first facial with Oksana 2 weeks ago and I must say WOW! She is amazing! She is warm and very passionate about what she does. I am seeing results for my troubled skin already! Oksana had a very warm space that was inviting and relaxing. I feel my troubles melt away when I enter. I have signed up for a 6 week treatment package and I look forward to my appointment every week. I highly recommend for every woman out there who needs a relaxing hour for her face.
Oksana knows everything. She analyzed my skin, told me about the current products I use and told me what products to change over to for the type of skin I want and results I am looking for. Within a month, my skin was the best it has ever been in my entire life and still is. I see Oksana every 6 to 8 weeks. I HIGHLY recommend her to everyone.
