I have been going to Fabu since 2010 for facials and waxing. Lisa is the person I use every time I go. She gives great facials and recommends the best products for my face and skin issues. In addition, Lisa is very friendly. I enjoy talking with her as much as I do the facial.
Based on my experience, you will get the absolute best results and have the most relaxing experience at Fabu Face Spa! Lisa has been my esthetician since 2008 and has helped me overcome my skin concerns - everything from acne, acne scarring, signs of aging, and overall skin tone and texture. She also has advised me in choosing at-home products that actually work! I would never go anywhere else b/c it is so hard to find a spa where you see the clear results in your skin's appearance immediately after receiving a treatment. B/c of routinely seeing Lisa and using the products Fabu carries, I get so many compliments on my skin!
I usually use a different spa for bi-yearly facials, but I needed to get a facial before I left for an entire month on vacation. So, I came to Fabu after trying it two years ago and having an okay experience. I was really disappointed this time because I was scheduled for a 70 minute facial and really only had 45 minutes with the specialist. Of that time, she only spent about fifteen minutes on my face and the rest of the time was upper body massages, letting masks sit on my face, waiting to be seen after changing into a robe, ending early, and waiting to be seen after she tried selling the lady in front of me a few different kinds of facial masks that cut into my time. I have a lot of pimples and/or whiteheads or blackheads, and I came home with a full face of them despite dropping $85 here and that really stinks because I am a student who needs a lot more facials than I can afford, and I am not going to get a job that can pay for more until after I graduate! So, it looks like I will be waiting an extra seven months for a ??real? facial and I only got a massage on my scalp and shoulders that I could have easily gotten from myself or a friend.
I was recently visitin friends in ATL and just needed some ""me"" time so I booked the petite spa package which included a 30 minute massage and 30 minute facial. My massage therapist, Antwon, gave me a relaxing, soothing massage with just the right amount of firmness. His demeanor was professional and calming. Lisa did my facial and it was equally enjoyable. She is informative and does not pressure you to buy products. Both felt great! Thanks yall! I look forward to my next visit.
It took me a minute to get to this place,my boyfriend got me a gift certificate for my birthday here in Feb, I just used it like a month ago, what was I thinking. I should have been used it.The whole staff was great, and my God,the facial was soo good. It was my first time, getting one.I am glad I went and glad my boyfriend found a winner, I will be going back. Being a make-up artist, I need it all, the facial, the massage. Keep up the good work. I will be telling all about you,you know I think its time for another visit.
Pros: Everything was great
Cons: I really don't have nothing bad to say....
I have been getting facials by Lisa for six years. I go every five weeks. She is very good at what she does. People tell me my skin looks so good. I have recommended her to all of my friends.
Pros: very relaxing atmosphere
Cons: none that I can think of
Suzanne is a Brazillian wonder - takes her time and your comfort is the primary focus. She is relaxed and confident hence the experience is not a ""chore"" - feel like I have a friend in Suzanne who ensures that the end result is smooth :-)
having a brazillian is not the top of everyone's to do list or something to look forward to ... BUT Suzanne at Fabu certainly take the worry out of the process and does a great job of being aware of your needs. I always go to Suzanne and make sure to book my next appointment when I'm finished.
Pros: Zen like atmosphere, easy secure parking - never rushed
Cons: Can't think of any
Suzanne is awesome. Super warm and friendly, and funny to talk with. Makes you forget what she's doing to you and lets you relax. If there ever was a time to have someone you're really comfortable with, this is it! She's very thorough, and takes her time if needed. She always worries about your comfort and sensitivity level, and does everything she can to make it as painless as possible. The staff is extremely friendly, the place is very clean and relaxing. Yes, a spa may cost a little bit more then those cheap nail places, but the difference in the experience is night and day! And she does a much, much better job then the cheap places. It's completely worth it!\r
Pros: relaxing environment, friendly staff, free parking
Cons: not dirt cheap for penny pinchers
Suzanne is one of the fastest, most efficient waxers I've ever been to. If you've read any of my other reviews, you can see that I've had my share of waxing nightmares, but this is how it's supposed to be!
Not only is she quick, but she's thorough, friendly and funny. If someone is going to rip hair out of my body, I think we should at least be on friendly terms, and Suzanne's attention to detail and genuine interest makes it a fun visit. Plus she's so gentle that I can even go back to work after a wax!
The location has free parking behind the building and it's easy to get in and out (even though this is downtown Decatur where parking is often a problem) for an appointment.
Pros: Free Parking, Personalized Service
Cons: Thin walls
I've been going to Fabu for almost 2 years now, and I wouldn't go anywhere else for my facials. Jennifer is the first face that you see when you walk into Fabu, and she is consistenly friendly, helpful and patient. I see Lisa for my facials, and there is no doubt in my mind that she is the best at Fabu. Not only is she great at recommending the best facial for my skin at the time, but she has tons of knowledge about skincare products and supplements in general. She's suggested some amazing products that I now could not live without (Fabu's Limu Cleanser and Dermologica's Daily Microfoliant), and supplements that have helped keep my skin blemish-free (vitamin B-12). Whatever your skincare concern, Lisa will most likely have an answer. She is honest and never tries to push products on you. She's also very thorough when doing extractions, which I always appreciate!
Pros: Great menu of facials and services to choose from
I have been going to Fabu for several years now and I always have an amazing experience. Lisa Prato is wonderful and I have gone to her for facials and waxing. She is extremely knowledgeable and has always steered me in the right direction when it comes to taking care of my skin. I am always so relaxed after any service I have at Fabu. I love it there and will continue to go there for all of my spa needs!!
I've been going to Fabu for 2 years now and am beyond satisfied with the service. I have to admit,, I was never loyal to one esthetician, until I met Lisa. She is so knowledgeable and professional and best of all always makes me feel 100% comfortable and relaxed during our sessions. My skin has never looked better. I highly recommend making an appt with Lisa. You'll become a regular in no time !!
For the past several months I have been going to FABU for reflexology with Tina Johnson. She is a very gifted and caring individual. My foot issues have dramatically improved! A recent trip to Italy that involved hours of walking each day simply would not have been possible without Tina's amazing reflexology massages. The surroundings and staff at FABU are calming and professional. I look forward to each appointment and feel so fortunate that I found FABU and Tina. I have recommended FABU to many of my friends and am so grateful for my 'happy feet!'
Pros: Fabulous Reflexology!
When I was looking for a local spa for a facial, I found FABU online and booked my first appt. My appt was with Suzanne Igoe. Up to this point in my life, I was not a regular with any type of facial or skin care regiment. Immediately, Suzanne made me feel very comfortable, discussed with me my daily routines and my goals. After my first 30 min facial, I was hooked. In the following months, the improvement in my skin has been incredible. I now visit Suzanne once a month for a 70 min facial and it is by far the best thing that I do for myself each month. Skin care is Suzanne's passion and it is definitely apparent when you meet her. When discussing different issues, she has always given me her personal opinion as well as other options that are available for me. I have never felt pressured or as if I was just another client. Suzanne makes me feel like she is my own personal esthetician and she is truly concerned with the health and condition of my skin. She is the best!
Pros: Knowledgeable and professional
Getting a massage at Fabu was my very first time ever, and my massage therapist ""Tina"" was wonderful! She made my experience comfortable and fun, so much so I set up my next appointment two weeks from now and I have referred three other people to see her. Her professional customer service and attitude is the best. Bravo Tina!
Pros: Great Customer Service, Clean area, friendly staff, and quiet
Cons: Little Parking but the great service makes up for it.
I have gone for a facial, dermabrasion, and mani/pedi. The staff is great, the ambience is nice, and the results were awesome.
The best thing I can say about Fabu is that I go on my birthday every year. Jessica is absolutely a master of the facial. It is so wonderful and my skin has never looked better.
Pros: Best Facial in ATL
The best facial ever!!! Suzanne was great. I have been going for about a year and she always takes her time. Great customer service!!! If you go for a facial..ask for her!!! Excellent.
Highly reccomend Fabu Face Spa!!!! Went in on a Saturday for a facial with Suzanne and had the BEST experience ever. She was on time, courteous, clean and really easy to talk to. She told me all about my skin and things I can do to protect it. She was not a SALES person she actually cared about my skin. I will totally go back and most definately ask for Suzanne.\r
Having worked for one of Atlanta's ""premier spas"", in their call center, I appreciate that Jennifer recognises my voice when I call to make an appointment. I've only ever had 1 facial (hey, I'm a man), but Jessica gives a great facial. I must admit to being biased. Jennifer and Tina ( my massage therapist) have been more like friends to me during a very trying time in my life. I have had hundreds of massages in my life, and have never had anyone be as consistently good as Tina. I usually get the Swedish, but I have been told she is even better at Deep Tissue. To get her at her freshest, try an early morning massage, just not on one of my days!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not going to wrestle you for my time slot, okay, I MIGHT.
This was the best facial I've ever had. Jessica did such a wonderful job. I almost drifted off to sleep becasue it was so relaxing. It is much more than just a facial! I highly recommend Fabu and Jessica!
Pros: The best facial ever!
Cons: Pricey, but worth it.
I'll be honest at first. I wasn't to thrilled when my girlfriend surprised me with a visit to a spa. The closest thing to a spa that I've ever been to has to be the skin care section of Walgreen's. But when I walked into the spa I knew this was no Walgreen's... it wasn't even close. I was greeted with smiling faces and nice fragrances that immediately made me feel at ease. Soon after my girlfriend had a nice long talk with the receptionist I was taken to the back room where my treatment began. I can't tell you exactly what a ""Ruby Jessner"" treatment is (partly because I fell into a blissful sleep after about five minutes), but by the time I walked out, my face felt fresh and rejuvenated. The next day I couldn't stop looking at my skin in the mirror because it looked like I had stole the skin from a baby angel!\r
I highly recommend this place to anyone who has never had a facial AND to people who have. (my girlfriend is a regular there). The staff is VERY nice and the products they sell there are better than anything that I usually pick up. (their shaving cream and after shave is the best I've used) I'd recommend this place to any of my friends simply because their stuff works and I'm extremely satisfied!
wow, its been over 6 months since I put some menus from Fabu in my husbands office, car, briefcase, pockets, on the fridge, and even on his nightstand, and he finally figured out what i was hinting at. I wanted a gift certificate from Fabu! I made my appointment, showed up 10 minutes early, like requested, and was immediately in heaven! My facial was to die for, and the massage was so exquisite, i just wanted to stay there forever. It was so pampering! I have a 5 month old, and life gets kind of crazy, this is the best place for a pick-me-up, and they have a full boutique as well! Now my husband knows where to send me anytime I need a little break from reality!
Pros: ah, what else can I say other than so awesome!
What a disappointment! I expected great things from this little place but sadly experienced terrible customer service. The facial was ok but the attitude was terrible. I'll never go back and would never recommend this place!
Pros: convenient location
Cons: terrible customer service, rude, negative attitude
I was sent a gift certificate from Fabu by my parents, who live in North Dakota! I went to get my facial and massage, and once I was there, I found that they sell clothes!! I was in heaven!! If anyone wants to get pampered with a great facial and massage, and then do a little shopping, you should go to Fabu!
Pros: great facials, great massage, great brow wax, and great clothes!!
I went to Fabu for waxing. I wanted a small area done and the price on the list seemed reasonable. The esthetician asked me how much area I wanted waxed. I showed her and she offered to remove more. Not once did she clarify that the price I wanted only covered a limited area and if I wanted more done I'd have to pay extra. I was shocked when I went to pay and the price I was told was MORE THAN 2.5 TIMES what was listed on the price list, and I didn't even have a large area waxed. The spa is conveniently located, has free parking, and friendly service but BE WARY when going for a service that has a '+' next to the price because you will get scammed.
Pros: convenient location, free parking
Cons: mark-up on services
I had such fanstastic results from my facial at Fabu (AlphaBeta) that I've gone back for repeat visits. Appointments are always on time and the attitude is professional. I've also gone in for an excellent deep tissue massage -- so relaxing that I nearly fell asleep on the table! I would only suggest that a little more attention could be paid to creating a spa environment -- in terms of music/ lighting/ decoration.
Pros: great services, easy parking
I got a gift certificate for Mother's Day for the Fabu Classique Package. It was AMAZING! They started me off with a wonderful hour long massage, and then I got the Eminence facial. All I can say is that it was heaven. I heard so much about this place, and was so excited when my husband gave me this!! I will absolutely be back soon!
Pros: wonderful wonderful wonderful
I had read great things on Citysearch regarding this spa. I do not know about the facial services, but the massage was mediocre at best. This is what I get for having a body massage done at a facial place.
Pros: Nice Looking Place
Cons: Massage is obviously not a specialty
I got a gift certificate from my husband for the ""fabu classique"" package... it was the best thing ever! I was so excited to make my appointment I called the day after Christmas! They got me in with only a days notice, they ran on time and everything was so peaceful. The massage therapist must have had hands from heaven, it was wonderful. And my face has never felt this clean after a facial. I would love to have this as a gift for every occasion. Birthdays, Anniversary, Flag Day... it doesn't matter. Anytime!!
Pros: ran on time. great staff. very relaxing
Cons: none that I can think of
I went to Fabu facial simply because it's ranked the #1 Facial in Atlanta. I wanted to get an extraction on my pores and clease out the whitehead or little bumps I had on my face. The price listed on their website is in the upper end (most basic at $85 and higher) but I was willing to pay the high price to receive the facial that would improve the condition of my skin. I was quite disappointed after I got back home, not only were my bumps/white heads not cleansed (they were still there), but she even missed the most obvious ones in the most obvious spots! how could she even miss the big one right in the center of my forehead? I had to clean some of them out myself after I got back home, I wondered why did I spend $100 on something that didn't even make any differences on my skin. This makes me wonder and question about the credibility of Citysearch: why are these places ranked top when they are just average??? and this is not the first time this had happened to me.
Pros: free parking, nice massage but very short and minimal
Cons: facial was not thorough, no improvements at all afterwards
I have only tried the massage, but have been happy every time. No frills, but a nice and relaxing environment to unwind for a bit.
I flew into Atlanta and was told to have a facial at Fabu immediately. I have never experienced such a thorough & relaxing facial...ever!\r
From the moment I walked into the spa until the moment I left, I was treated & pampered like a queen.\r
My skin was glowing for days.\r
The thing that impressed me the most about Fabu was during my facial, when most estheticians leave you alone in the room for (what seems like a very long time...) with product on your face, my esthetician never left me. She massaged my shoulders and neck while my mask was on. I loved it!\r
The staff was extremely knowledgeable and kind without putting pressure on me to purchase items! \r
I want to fly back to Atlanta again soon, just to have a facial at Fabu.\r
I recently visited Fabu Face Spa and had the best spa experience to date. I love the cozy, yet swanky atmosphere. The stafff was so attentive and inviting. I just felt good being there. I started out with a Alpha-Beta facial . It was fabulous and Lisa, the esthetician, is very well trained and knowledgable about all of her products. Then I got a brow wax by Lisa as well. My brows have never looked better.\r
I am a HUGE fan of this spa and can't wait to go back. When i do go back I will be bringing my friends and family with me. \r
Everyone should have the Fabu Face Spa experience!!!!
Pros: Atmosphere, Staff and products
I love this place I have had a few facials here and have always meant to write them a review. This is the greatest facial ever!! My skin always looks so smooth and clear even weeks after my facials. They have the most effective products that are gentle and yield great results. Lisa, my esthetician has the softest hands ever and really knows her products and skincare in general. The massage therapist is really great as well and the girl at the front desk is so nice and also knowledable about the products. I HIGHLY recommend FABU to anyone looking for quality skincare, personal service and a great warm and relaxing atmosphere and staff.
Pros: Friendly staff, Parking, Atmosphere
I feel rejuvenated! the best facial and massage in town. Tina, the massage therapist, can work magic with her hands, and the one on one with the estheticians is the best, they make you feel so welcomed and comfortable there. I love that they don't leave you in the room all by yourself, they really give you your money's worth. Truly the best!
Pros: still the best place to feel great
Recently I went there to get a facial. I'm not going to argue about the relaxing atmosphere, great products, etc. But that's not what you pay 85$ for. I needed to get extractions, safely & thoroughly (something that you can't really do yourself). To my suprise at home I realised that only about 10% of my pores were clean. This was the worst result I ever got. I wish I realised it at the spa.
So,if you wanna feel pampered and give your skin an overall glow - it's a good place. But with my problematic face that needs more attention I'd rather look for another place.
Cons: no actual result
By far the best men's facial I have ever had! I had several ingrown hairs, and their technique cleared up my face and neck. I would recommend all men to try Fabu's facial. Very relaxing- a 10 all around!
Pros: professional, cozy, friendly
My neice got me a massage there for my Birthday and I have to say it was the best massage I've had in a long time!
Pros: friendly, relaxing, results
The 75 minute Eminence organic fruit and vegetable facial... AWESOME! The spa pedicure was so delightful and relaxing. You sit in a cushy massage chair while getting the best pedicure of your life. Polish lasted for 6 weeks, but by then it was time to change due to growth of the nail. the atmosphere is peaceful, and puts you in a state of complete nirvana. A++++ all- around!
Pros: friendly staff, great results, location
I have been to many a spa and had several facials - Emminence Facial is the very best I have ever had!
I had a manicure/pedicure combo and I do believe it was the best I've ever had!! Lauren was so friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend it to even the pickest of people. The salon was clean and neat and was very organized!! I can't wait to return and plan to make this a regular treat for myself!! A++++++++++
Pros: friendly, CLEAN, very skilled
Cons: wish it was longer
Fabu Day Sap is my favorite because they really know their products and are very helpful.
Pros: very clean, nice staff, great products
I had the best facial that cleared up blemishes, and smoothed fine lines for weeks. I also bought the at home peel kit, which gave unbelievable results. I also HIGHLY recommend the Ear Candling treatment, in which appears the ""vacuum"" unwanted wax deep in the ear canal.
I made my way to the massage, and was amazed by the amount of experience and knowlegde their therapist had. Deep tissue is also highly recommended.
I then sat in the most cozy massaging pedicure chair, while their Nail Technician gave me the best pedicure that lasted 4+ weeks (still counting!)
Having traveled internationally amongst various day spas and spa resorts, this little best kept secret has trully been the most relaxing and theraputic spa I have ever been lucky enough to find.
I am not one to write reviews, but I would really like to see more establishments take after Fabu.
Pros: Lasting results, Caring, Private
I have had several facials with Jessica. She is very knowledgable and uses great products. Highly recommend!
I have been looking for someone who does a good job waxing eyebrows since I moved here almost three years ago. I finally found one at Fabu. Jessica did a fabulous job shaping my eyebrows. The atmosphere was very relaxing, and she was very conscientious of soothing any possible discomfort. I highly recommend this salon.
It was the best facial I've ever had! A lot of massage in the facial.
