Overall my facial was a very relaxing experience. Compared to other facials I've had this was by far the best. I was treated with professional service and will now be a lifetime client. I recommend both Beauty Clinica and Nina to all my friends looking for top notch service that deserves to be commended. Make sure to ask for the aroma expert facial from NIna, it was luxurious and the results were great.

I had my first facial with Alex a few weeks ago & my skin looked & felt fabulous afterward. I wanted to wait a while before making a recommendation to see if the "glow" lasted. Well, it did!! My skin has never felt better. I'm returning for another, more "in depth" facial soon. The best part of the service I received were the extractions. Whatever method Alex used thouroughly cleared my clogged pores with lasting results. I can honestly say that my pores, especially around the nose area, have shrunk. Alex is a lovely, friendly young woman who acted in a very ethical manner. She was completely professional but did NOT try to sell me products or gadgets that I did not want or need. I went to that "ritzy" overpriced salon in "the" shopping center once, and ONLY once, & had a very bad experience. Thre, the woman told me that she didn't want to use a mask on my face (even though I paid for it!) becasue it would clog my pores!! So, she said, she would apply only an "herbal" mask. It was nothiong more than a damp wash rag left on my face for a few minutes. I suppose she was mad at me because I didn't buy the $200 machine she tried to sell me. The contraption was supposed to help my skin with electric brushes!! My skin was a disaster afterward!! If you want a beautiful experience for your skin, please patronize Beauty Clinica.

Cons: None

I found this place just walking down California Avenue. It looked very warm and welcoming from outside. I saw their massage special and thought hey why not. To my luck they had an opening right away. I waited in the waiting area for my appointment, made myself some green tea and had cucumber/lemon water. What a great beginning. Then I got a great massage by a therapist named Alex. She was very sweet, but tough on my muscles. I felt great after my treatment. I would highly recommend this place.

I was really looking forward to going to this spa, I originally requested Olga but she was on medical leave. It was my birthday gift to myself and was in need of a good massage since I had been preparing for my wedding. All I have to say is dont get a massage at this place! My therapist was Alex, from the beginning I wondered what was going on. Being a massage therapist myself I know that you need sturdy shoes to have good posture and help you give deep pressure, she had on 3 inch wedge sandals, when I got on the table she didnt even ask me any thing. Usually it is good to see if the client has anything that needs specific attention. She started what I can now say was the worse massage I have ever received, this is including my days of being a student. There was no pressure and when I looked up to see what she was doing, she was actually looking off to who knows where. She was not concentrating and actually seemed like she did not want to be there. On my first time client questionaire I made sure to let them know I did not enjoy the massage, the manager called which was good. But the only thing she could offer me was to pay the same price I had already thrown away at this spa. I will say the facial I received by Elena left my face radiant and soft, but I would hope no one wastes their hard earned money on a massage here!

My girl friends and I went for a bridal shower at this place. We had mani/pedis and got our hair done. Beauty Clinica really made that day special for us. The bride looked absolutely gorgeous, and we were ready on time. I absolutely recommend this spa for your bridal needs.

Beauty Clinica is a spa that offers a variety of services all under "one roof." Services include facials, massages that can be adapted to the needs of the client, waxing, hair styling, manicure and pedicure. I have used most of these services over the past four years. I keep going back to Beauty Clinica because the staff is friendly and accommodating. The ambiance is relaxing and non-"pretentious." I feel comfortable and relaxed there. I strongly recommend that you try this spa. You will not regret it!!!

I initially had a problem making an appt. with them. The appointment time had to be coordinated with the staff which required several phone calls between the spa, their nail staff, and myself. Very inconvenient. After such a negative experience trying to get an appointment, I posted my grevience on Yelp about it and the director of Beauty Clinica personally contacted me and apologized and promised an upgrade in the service to compensate for the hassle. However, they were unable to follow through on their attempts to make amends. When my daughter and I got there for our appt. that I made over a week prior, instead of taking us both at the same time (since the appts. were both at 10:00) they took my daughter and left me waiting in the the waiting room for 20 min (with no explantion). This was supposed to be a mother, daughter activity. In addition, although the director promised an upgrade for both of us on the pedicure I only received the upgrade. My daughter did not receive the same upgrade. In addition, my daughter's massage chair didn't even work. At the end of my daughter's pedicure, we couldn't even tell if the pedicure was over. The gentleman just walked away. Finally, the pedicures were just average. I would not go back. For that type of service you can go to a store front shop for a pedicure and pay $20 less.

Pros: Director seems concerned with customer service

Cons: Received mediocre service, nothing to write home about, not worth the price

Great prices. The massage was very helpful for my aching back. It could have been a bit more streamlined, meaning she did not keep her hands on my body the entire time, and continually stopped to get more oil. However, my back felt great when I left.

I have gone to Beauty Clinica many times over the past three years and have always had a great experience. They strive to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. I typically go for a facial, which is always great, but have also gone for massage, eyebrow waxing and manicures. The staff are attentive and listen to your concerns and will adjust the treatments based on the information you give them. I always look forward to my treatments and always leave relaxed and happy with the results. If you want to go on a weekend, be sure to book your appointment early in the week to ensure you can get in!

this spa is definitely one of the only spas that i thought gave good services + good prices. i usually go to Harmonie Day Spa in Saratoga because its environment is nicer but Harmonie's pricey services do add up, so I decided to go for another choice + mix it up. I choose Beauty Clinica Day Spa and went there for a Dead Sea Salt Masque Package (with dead sea salt body glow, seaweed wrap, facial, foot + head massage) + 90 min. Massage. I had Olga as my server + thought she was the best. Because of her I decided to book my monthly Spa Day @ Beauty Clinica + will go back there for my full spa day routine once a month. I will only go back to Harmonie now for special occasions.

I would've given this spa a 5 but I think that the building is older and the environment could be a little bit nicer. The service was definitely great though.

Another reason why I gave this spa a 4 is because I hate their receptionist Natalie - from my experience she worked afternoons. She is impatient and rude. I had to call back + change my appointments a few times due to work schedule changes and wanting to ADD services to my spa day. She told me that I kept on changing and its causing her a lot of problems. One day I asked her for my schedule + she even told me that she was too busy so she couldn't do it... seriously giving me my 7 hour spa day schedule takes only about 2 seconds. I go there like EVERY MONTH for 8 hours! PLUS i am a customer! even if I changed it like 1000 times, keep it to yourself and not tell the customers that they are causing problems!

If it wasn't for Olga who was such a nice lady + motherly who really takes care of you and make sure you are comfortable + the reasonable prices I would have never went back to Beauty Clinica because of Natalie

I did not get a good facial aesthetician. A colleague of hers told me she has been there 13 years! In this case, experience doesn't seem to help. This is a list of why I will never get a facial there again:
1. Very rushed and somewhat rough massage, it would have been more relaxing if it were left out completely.
2. She got up and left the room a minimum of 6 times, leaving the door open so you could hear people scurrying back and forth. Furthermore, when in the room she was constantly darting back and forth, knocking into things etc. Generally, she was a restless person, couldn't sit still and it made for a very UN-relaxing time.
3. There was no skin examination, and certainly no skincare reccomendations. She couldn't even bother herself to customize the products by skin type. I have combination/oily skin, and any competent aesthetician could see that, she however slathered oil all over my face and proceeded to get it throughout my hair(!). At the end she left it on thinking I want to walk around with an oil slick on my face? Other places I have been to finished with a light moisturizer and/or suncreen if during the day.
4. The only real effort that was put into the session was the extractions, which were also rough and in some places unnecessary.
5. Overall, definitely not a serene environment, the package I got was called Express Relaxation. All I can say is it was definitely "Express" but there was very little relaxation to speak of.

I have been to other spas in the recent past, and have been highly satisfied with every aspect of the experience, just so you know I am not a hyper-critical person. There are simply minimum standards to be expected when you are shelling out alot of cash in the hopes of being pampered.

My family bought me a day at the Beauty Clinica Spa and it was a wonderful experience. The staff went out of their way to make my day especially enjoyable. I had the works done - including a manicure, pedicure, body wrap, massage and facial. The lunch was scrumpious too. Afterwards, I felt totally rejuvenated. My family know what to get me for a gift in the future.

I found this Spa totally by luck, but it is a jewel. The staff has great skill and a good understanding of skin type and how to help. They are not uppity or pretentious like other Spas I have been to. I went back for a massage and was impressed both with the environment and the techniques that were used. I am definitely going back.

This was my first facial experience, and the staff was friendly and helpful. My skin was in pretty bad condition when I first came in--dry and oily as well as clogged pores. I was given a generous amount of samples and advised on a routine. When I came in 3 weeks later my skin was so much better. My second visit was one week before my wedding and my second facial did the trick. My skin in better than it ever has been. Make up is optional. Beauty clinica is great not only for their treatments, but also for the education they give you to take home.
