I had a great facial with Michele a few months back and intend on booking again soon. I have always jumped around from esthetician to esthetician, but love how Michele took the time to get to know me, my skin and my routine. She made some great suggestions and wasn't afraid to tell me what I was doing wrong and/or right. I can't wait to go back for a peel and start working on correcting the issues I'm having.

I came back last week for my last facial before I jet off to the wedding
and I must say I still loved every moment of it (except that I had to
pay full, not Groupon price this time ;-) I dream of that cozy bed in
the room by the way, if I could have any bed in the world I think it
might just be that one!
Patti did a great job listening to my needs and coming up for the perfect bridal peel for my needs. She also told me on the way out that if anything "popped up" before leaving town to call her and they'd get me in and take care of it.
She also had the perfect product that I asked her for to keep my skin hydrated on the looooooong plane ride to South Africa.
Thanks again Patti - you rock!

My wife went in for a basic 45 minute facial and came home with a complete sense of calmness and tranquility. She could NOT stop talking about how pampered she was. Great job Michelle and crew, I scored big points for that one.

Most knowledgeable and professional facial treatment I've ever had. A specialized and individualized treatment, not "one size fits all" type. Absolutely amazing, I recommend Michelle and her group to everyone!

Michelle is not only a great esthetician and an expert and student of skin, but she treats every client as friend. Her studio is beautiful and you can feel the serenity as soon as you walk in. Thank you so much Michelle!

Surface Esthetics is different from other treatment centers. They focus on client education and prescriptive home care that enhance the results received in the treatment room. You never get an "out of the box" facial. Every facial is tailored for you and what is best for your skin based on what it needs.
Michelle is the best esthetician I have ever visited.
I've had several facials by Michelle during my pregnancy and just recently began a chemical peel treatment. My skin looks and feels 10 years younger. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle is amazing. I just completed by first series of facials and the results are the best I've ever had in my lifelong battle with breakouts. Trust me, I've tried it all. With Michelle, I saw results after the first facial and my skin just keeps improving. She is not only knowledgeable, but fantastic at explaining what is going on with your skin, the products you are using and truly has your best interest at heart. I've never gone to a facialist who told me that I didn't need to buy a single tube of product! Instead she helped me understand what I needed to do to get the products I already owned to work for me. I only wish I found her YEARS ago.

Michelle is so good at treating me specifically for what my skin needs during each visit. She keeps logs of treatments she's done in the past to accurately assess my skin. Her warm and friendly spa room is a welcomed retreat from my daily work routine. :)

I had a bout with adult acne, Michelle at Surface Esthetics not only solved the acne problem but also rejuvenated my aged and sun damaged complexion. I look like I am 20 years younger! Thank you Michelle and thank you Surface Esthetics.

Michelle's facials are amazing! I live in Pasadena & still make a point to schedule facials with Michelle when I'm in SD! Don't miss out! Enjoy!

Michelle is awesome! I went to her at 26 weeks pregnant because I though I was getting acne. She examined my skin and determined there was no acne and she thought it might be an allergic reaction. Instead of upselling me on acne products, she did a calming facial and recommending seeing my doc to find out what is going on. I was worried about chemicals etc for a prenatal skin facial and she was very knowledgeable and gentle. She was also the only aesthetician I could find that did prenatal facials. A+
