Dermal Science International Aesthetics Academy: what do users think?


Sammie Engelhardt: If you’re looking to become not only an esthetician but an amazing esthetician then DSI is where you need to be. I’m completely confident in my education and with only being a few weeks graduated i’ve already landed a job at wonderful med spa under a well known doctor. DSI provided the best instructors who really made sure you grasped everything educationally and hands on. The products and training they provide really give you the jump start you need. I graduated a professional at what I do now and ready to share my talents with the world. Thank you DSI for the amazing experience 💙

Erika Hernandez: I was looking into this school and submitted my financial aid. The woman that I spoke with kept arguing for some reason about my results. I thought it was very tacky for her to talk negatively about other schools. As a business, its important that the first point of contact acts professional. Update: I wasn't arguing. I actually just signed up for a program, so explain how that is incorrect. The truth hurts? That is a great way to speak to prospective students and she did talk about how those schools want just money. It's so tacky that you argue with clients if they leave a negative review. Be professional. Good luck on your rundown business! Place looks dirty and cheap anyways.
Response: We didn’t talk bad about other schools you insisted the other schools promised you something that was not correct as far as our data shows and we informed you the other schools may not be informing you correctly. You need to understand department of education doesn’t change the rules from the school to school, contrary to your argument. Unfortunately, sometimes hearing the truth is hurtful and people take it as an argument, not realizing that they are the ones who are arguing not the other way around. We are sorry the outcome of your application wasn’t what you were expecting Good luck!

Amanda Yessler: I went to DSI for my basic esthetics course and now I am currently attending their Master Esthetics course. I cannot recommend this school enough if you’re located in the Northern Virginia area. The teachers are the best of the best and will always make sure you are learning proper techniques while proving a comfortable learning environment. The owner Shiva knows what she’s doing and even provided a job opportunity for me and I got the job! This school sets you up for success if you take it seriously. I recommend anyone I know who wants to be an esthetician to come here. Thank you DSI for everything I’ve learned and the lifelong friends I’ve made

A.N. Gartner: I completed my basics and master esthetics training at this school. This is the best school to receive esthetics training. I do not think any other esthetics school can compare. I felt very prepared and confident to start my career thanks to everything I have learned at DSI. The instructors are amazing, and the owners truly want what is best for the students. They also prepare you so well for state boards. Would recommend this school to anyone looking to start a career in this field!

Yasmin Morandini: If you are looking for a respectable and professional school to attend for your esthetician license do not attend dsi academy. Shiva is a money hungry goblin that is self centered and belligerent. She picks and chooses how many hours you have to make up because she is incapable of keeping track of students hours like she's supposed to. Every single interaction I've had with her was awful, she is very dismissive and disrespectful to students. Even after graduating months ago it still irks me how petty and bitter renee and shiva are. I had to hold off on writing my review for this school because these people are so vindictive and malicious I was scared that they would sabotage my hours or certification. Renee is so unbelievably vain, we would spend hours HOURS having to listen to her talk about her life instead of teaching the material. There are so many little details i wish i could share on here but there is way too much to say. Save yourself the stress and unhappiness and find a school that values your time and money.
Response: Yasmin, Unfortunately, in order to keep your personal information private, we are not going to discuss your situation here. it is unfortunate and unfair that when the schools are trying to adhere to their rules and policies, students who don't respect such policies turn to social platforms to make serious accusations and disrespect the school's officials who tried to help and educate them. your lack of respect and the strong language used in this review is a testament to your behavior while attending DSI academy. Wish you good luck!

Melisa Martinez: I wanted to take the Basic esthetician’s course at this school. I went in to find out about the program and Shiva the CEO seemed very money hungry. I asked questions about the program and she dismissed them and kept talking about the contract I had to sign. Didn’t offer a tour of the school and I really didn’t feel comfortable being there. I’m not one to write reviews but I felt that this place deserved one. I recently left the military and I was already nervous about starting a career and being there just gave me nothing but anxiety. The contract they were trying to get me to sign also said if you miss more than 30 hours you’d have to make them up and get charged 35 dollars per hour. I wouldn’t recomend this place to anyone. They need to put the students needs and concerns first.
Response: You had 3 different names no certificate of approval from VA and wanted to enroll with no financial aid or other payments options. You were given a tour by the assistant director. You insisted on applying even thou you had no definite plan of payment, filled the contract when asked to pay the 100 dollar reg fee you went to feed your baby in the car and never returned. And that is after 5 times not showing up or canceling your tour. Sorry things didn't go as you wished them to but stop accusing and changing the story..We respect every one who comes in whether they join us or not. You were treated just as fairly as every one else. The only Issue was your unclear documents.

Rachel Green: I must say, wow! I was looking for a school to attend and it won't be this one. The owner is clapping back at negative reviews?! How tacky, unprofessional and juvenile - to say the least. I've never felt so compelled to share my two cents but it sounds like they can only take compliments, never criticism. If you can't take the bad with the good, you shouldn't run a business. Remember the "customer" is always right, even when they're wrong.

Jill Reilly: I just finished my masters program here at DSI after also completing my basic esthetic course here as well. The school is top notch. The instructors are the best of the best. I cannot rave about my instructors enough: knowledgable, helpful, caring, professional. The state board test prep is so in depth that I felt extremely confident taking my basic and now onto my masters. I started and ended during the pandemic. Shiva made sure we felt safe coming in for our practical days. I would highly recommend DSI to anyone looking to get an amazing education.

Leah Hardin: I took both my Basic and Master courses at DSI. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the teachers. They are so knowledgeable and genuinely care about each student’s education. I feel thoroughly prepared for my state board because of the tremendous state board prep we’re given. I’ve also met some amazing fellow-students who were equally supportive and lovely to learn along with. Mrs.Shiva takes COVID very seriously and made sure we were all taking extra precautions to ensure everyone’s health. I really appreciate the experience, the friendships, the wealth of knowledge, and the amount of growth I was able to accomplish with the help of DSI and the lovely teachers.

lindsay wolf: Can't say enough great things about DSI! I completed Basics here, and am now in Masters. The teachers are incredible- they know their stuff and go the extra mile to help in any way they can. I felt very prepared for the Basics State Board exam. Shiva and Peter are so helpful and accommodating, and always want the best for the students. I highly recommend this school!

Aesthetic University: what do users think?


Renata Roddy: I had an all day private training w/ Erika and let me just say, it did NOT disappoint! Erika is extremely knowledgeable in all things tox and filler. She uses every product and will guide you every step of the way. She shares her tips and pearls with you and is very encouraging while you're injecting. In addition to her brains and beauty, she is also the sweetest and very responsive to texts if you ever needed her! Thank you Erika!!

Shakira C: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueCan’t say enough about Erika and Hania! They are so knowledgeable about all things Aesthetics! Share information to help everyone be at the top of the game. They are kind, sweet, and humble. Love learning from this power duo! Definitely must take trainings! I am 100% a better injector after learning from them! 💉❤️

Audrey Rose: This is not the typical aesthetic training! The trainers are extremely experienced! They create a boutique style training setting! You will feel like the only injector! Ericka and hania are rockstars of the aesthetic space !

Jessica Blaney: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI had a private training with Erika last year and learned a lot. I use her 8 point face lift in almost all of my patients today. I highly recommend training at Aesthetic University and will be going back myself!!

Tampa Toxoholic: I feel that I should post a review of my time at Moksha Aesthetics training with Erika and Hania because of the tremendous impact their leadership has provided me and my approach to injectable. I’ve watched the both through the last few years develop into the Titans they are today in the world of aesthetics. They joined forces over the COVID quarantine when most companies were closing their doors and some would be permanently. The two of them took to their social media platforms and to Erika’s Patreon channel and began to provide us all with hope that this wouldn’t be the end of our industry. Rather, they advised us all to welcome time away from busy clinical locations and spend the time to grow our skill set, develop better practices for business success, and reach out to others who might need a positive voice when times seemed so awful. It was during that time when my distant admiration I always possessed for them became the ultimate reward by opening the training institute with Mint threads and hyperdilute Radiesse. They have been opening their practice for small groups of injectors seeking career advancement continuing education courses every injector could utilize to expand their own procedure portfolio and better serve their individual communities. I was and continue to be a grateful student, hopeful colleague, and fortunate friend of both Erika and Hania. I look forward to all future endeavors these two choose to pursue, because if that’s the direction they are going I would be foolish to ignore. Do your career a solid and participate in the Aesthetic University courses. You won’t walk away without many valuable tips and techniques, perfectly prepared for success and growth. They have changed my outlook on this dynamic profession and I am certain if you’re interested they will do the same for you.

Jenny Magliano: I recently took a PDO threads course and couldn’t say enough good things! I didn’t feel rushed and I had plenty of hands on time. Erika and Hania showed us a variety of techniques and areas to prepare us. Moksha is a beautiful facility!!!!! Can’t wait for my next training!! If you’re looking for an aesthetic course.... Aesthetic University is the place!!

Elizabeth Ackerson: Positive: Communication, QualityFlew in from the Midwest to train with the best. Erika and Hania and staff were simply amazing. So welcoming, the space is gorgeous and their knowledge is extraordinary.

Denisse Serrano: I had the pleasure of training with Erika Barry 9 months ago and it changed my injectable skills to another level. Her strategies and 8 point lift techniques are unique and most importantly Erika has the patient of a saint and explains things so well while she's teaching. I 10/10 recommend her for trainings whether you're a beginner or an advanced injector. Check out one of my before and afters after this training.

Georgetown Dental Aesthetic: what do users think?


Vaughn Resper: They were amazingly professional, patient and gentle. I am 68 years old and I have never ever had such an amazing experience at the dentist. Alexa and the Doctor(I can’t spell his name. I am in the chair as we speak) but he was amazingly kind. I didn’t even feel the injection to numb me and I had a root canal. God Bless them and everyone that is reading this. Amen

Lynn Schubert: Loved my dentist of over 20 years, but had to fond a new one. Tried a couple, but not happy. Dr.Alathari and his assistant Alexis at GT Dental Aesthetics changed that. From the excellent. Informative and welcoming woman on the phone and at the front desk, through the entire checkup, Xrays and cleaning with Dr. Alathari and Alexis, they couldn't have been better. I have found a new home!

Eeia Mael: Dr alem & assistant alexus were amazing! I had to get a couple fillings before I leave the country for a year. My regular dentist retired suddenly and I needed an appointment in four days. I called and they did it SAME DAY! I hate fillings but they put me at easy and talked me through it. They didn’t do anything unnecessary and let me know my price before starting. As for pricing it was much better than my regular for state of the art equipment. Highly recommend!

Tony R: This is hands down the best dentist I've ever been to. Dr. Humam and his assistant Alexus are extremely professional and take their jobs serious. The office also has cutting edge equipment which makes procedures less time consuming.

Rachel E. Anderson: Everyone at the office was very polite and friendly. Dr. Alathari put me at ease and frequently stopped to make sure I didn’t have any questions. I would highly recommend this office.

V Wortham: Dr. Alem is the best dentist I've ever had. Very friendly, professional, and patient. She did such a beautiful job on my bridge and made sure it was exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend her.

Deidre Williams: I was referred to Dr. Alathari, GT Denyal Aesthetic, to receive service of not one, but TWO 🤦🏾‍♀️ root canals in one visit. I think I slept through the entire procedure. I was greeted by the friendly and hospitable, assistant Alexis, who made sure I was comfortable (I was so nervous 😬). Dr Alathari introduced himself and briefly explained the procedure. He was gentle, thorough and I felt no pain. I highly recommend Dr. Alathari and his pleasant assistant, Alexis, who makes the visit more delightful… (as much as it could be given the circumstance). The entire team at this office is professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, efficient and friendly. Latoya welcomes you with a smile and, my long time dentist, Dr. Alem, (the best) and her wonderful assistant Jasmine (she is so sweet) are awesome. ✨🌟🤩 😁

Hanna Zwerver: Had to find a new dentist after moving to the city, and this dentist was great. Friendly receptionist and dental assistant (Alexis), and Dr. Alem is very kind and skilled at her craft.

Maria Ata: Amazing office and amazing people working here. Dr. Alem and Alexus are taking good care of their patients. The office is very clean, well organized, and I never have to wait. The atmosphere is very welcoming! Dr. Alem, thank you for all great work you ve done!

James Gagel: I had an acute situation. Dr. Alathari's staff was very attentive and gave me an immediate appointment. Within 1.5 hours all was taken care of to my complete satisfaction! Alexus and Latoya are the best!

Elite Prosthetic Dentistry: Dr. Gerald M. Marlin: what do users think?


J Cooke: Another dentist referred me to Dr. Marlin for an implant because I had a particularly "tricky" case--a bad angle and bone loss, for starters--and he said that Dr. Marlin was the best around. I kept putting my first visit off, but when I got to Dr. Marlin's office, he and his team put me immediately at ease and couldn't have been more friendly, welcoming or professional. I had multiple appointments over the course of a year and a bit, and Dr. Marlin always took the time to explain what he was doing and why, to answer all my questions, and to ensure that everything felt and was done exactly right. He is a consummate professional and clearly a perfectionist--which is very reassuring when it comes to having major dental work done! My teeth and bite feel good as new; I have no more jaw pain; and the humor and good cheer of the whole team throughout the long process made going to the dentist a very positive experience.
Response: Thank you, Jennifer, for your patience and understanding as we worked through the problem solving to our successful result. You are a pleasure to work with.

Amanda Mitchell McBride: I love coming into this office! It had been a while since I was in due to the pandemic, but I was so happy to go back and see the entire staff. Everyone on this team, from the front desk, to the office management, to the care team is absolutely wonderful and makes me feel like family. Claudia, the new hygienist, made me feel comfortable right away on our first visit. I highly recommend Elite Prosthetic Dentistry for anyone looking for a practice you'll never want to leave! Everything they do is with care, precision and love for their patients and their craft. Five stars.
Response: Dear Amanda, You are an absolute pleasure, and a delight to all of us here when you visit! We appreciate your beautiful smiles each time you come in. Thank you very much for taking the time with your kind words, and sharing your amazing energy with all of us. Looking forward to seeing you next, and all the best to you!

Susan Milner: I have been a patient of Dr. Marlin’s since moving to DC in the late ‘80s and cannot say enough about his skills and the professionalism – and kindness -- of his dental and office staff. Until the past year, I have not needed major dental work, and only one of the (small) fillings that Dr. Marlin placed over 25 years ago has required replacement. During the pandemic, however, I fractured a premolar so badly that both he and the endodontist he recommended suggested an implant as my best option. I’m now nearing the end of this process, which has included orthodontia to make additional space for the crown, and I am similarly pleased with the results thus far. I have also been very impressed with the orthodontist and endodontist that Dr. Marlin recommended and his (and their) excellent communication and coordination of my care.
Response: Susan, thank you for your kind words. We appreciate you understanding the quality and care Dr. Marlin provides. We are so grateful for patients like you and look forward to seeing your wonderful results!

Kathleen Jacobson: I've been going to Dr. Marlin for over 20 years and would strongly recommend him to anyone! Dr. Marlin is a very experienced, high-end dental professional with an engineering mindset, a great office team, and a sense of humor. I have had two implants done by him -- one in 2001 and one last year (in the midst of the pandemic). Both of the implants replaced teeth in a space that can best be termed "challenging" -- in the bottom-back of my (small) mouth, next to where the wisdom teeth would be. I still have the first implant from 20 years ago. I've been told that is way above the average life expectancy across dentists nationwide. The second implant (the one during the pandemic) was done with the same high level of engineering that he always uses. Dr. Marlin took the time to angle the implant in such a way that I would have the greatest long-term use of it. In terms of having work done during the pandemic: not the timing I would have wished for, but the office did a professional job of making me feel safe. In between these two implants, I have been going to this office for regular dental cleanings. The hygienist in the office, Claudia, is very nice, does a thorough job, and is pleasant in trying to me to change my habits. Overall, it's a great practice!
Response: Dear Kathleen, many thanks for your expression of what it takes to provide an implant that is foundationally sound and, therefore, lasting for decades. It is a pleasure working with you! We look forward to seeing you at your next visit.

John Melius: Dr. Marlin has an exceptional operation going on at Elite Prosthetic Dentistry. His staff comes from different international backgrounds. The extensive work that he has done for me has gotten me many compliments on my teeth. I needed dental surgery and the surgeon complimented me on my teeth. As I was getting a Watchman put into my heart, the anesthesiologist had me open my mouth wide to check for loose dentures etc. She exclaimed, "You have beautiful teeth! I wish my dentist took care of my teeth like that!" These and others have complimented me on my teeth. This hasn't happened to me before I started using Dr. Marlin as my dentist. I went to him because I wanted solid, durable, dental work, and got compliments as an unexpected outcome.
Response: Thank you John. It was really great working through the issues with your "extensive work", especially when working with someone who is so positive in his outlook and informative on different subjects.

gustavo paredes: I rarely write reviews for professional services rendered. It is my expectation that professionals should meet a very high level of qualitative standards and personal assumptions. I live in Northwest Washington, DC. I had a good degree of anxiety to find a Prosthodontist who could provide restoration for an implant that had array after 20 years due to an athletic injury suffered during college. I search online to locate a variety of Prosthodontists near Friendship Heights where there is a large grouping of dental practices. I met with Dr. Marlin and his staff. He explained to me the entire process which included the time frame, the series of procedures, and a tour of the facility which included the in-house lab. The implant had become loose and could not be reinserted into my mouth. After a review of the X-rays and situation, He recommended a much larger yet necessary procedure. The bone had deteriorate significantly that it take much more extensive work. A bridge that would span across the lower part of mouth. This was a bit shocking to me. The level of comfort, the professionalism and friendly of the entire staff and communication lead me to chose Dr. Marlin. I have not regretted my decision. Dr. Marlin is 5 star Prosthodontist. Many individuals strived for perfection and many fall short because good is enough, too much time and resources has been spent on a patient, or they have too many commitments. This is not the value ethics of the Elite Prosthetic Dentistry. I was not discharged as a patient until the work on teeth had met his high standards and I was comfortable with the look and feel within my mouth. This office is filled with individuals who are happy to work there and interact with the patients. Finally, do not balked if you feel the services are a bit pricey. You get what pay for. I received much more that I pay. I recommend Dr. Marlin and his staff wholeheartedly and without hesitation!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience! Dr. Marlin is passionate about providing the best care for each patient. Glad you had the experience you deserve!

John Douglas: In December 2020 I was advised by my entertainment attorney that I was offered a streaming video series from a major network and we would begin filming in May 2021. That was great news but for the past month my daughter and I were searching for Prosthetic dentists because of my age my teeth were in bad shape. We searched in Virginia, Maryland and WDC and spoke to dentists asking for their personal recommendation. The name Dr. Gerald M. Marlin and Elite Prosthetic Dentistry kept coming up as one of the very best if not the best. I made an appointment for the first week in January 2021 and met Dr. Marlin and his very professional team. He examined me and said that I would need my teeth replaced by crowns because they were in fact in bad shape. Dr Marlin also said that my teeth alignment would probably first have to be corrected and that I should first see an orthodontist before he can start with me. I told Dr. Marlin I didn't have time to have my teeth corrected by braces and was there anything he could do. He said it would be real challenge for him and particularly when I needed this done by the end of April. Dr. Marlin took the challenge and my observation of him concluded that he is a perfectionist and that told why he received such high reviews from patients and other Dentists. By the end of April the mission was accomplished. The teeth were natural looking and not like some you see on television that have teeth looking like piano keys. Dr.Marlin and his staff are all exceptional. He hires the best and they treated me the very best. I'm so very happy with the results and I can't say enough good things about Dr. Marlin and his team. I recommend Dr. Marlin highly and with no reservations what so ever. He brought my smile back and he will bring your smile back as well. John Douglas
Response: Thank you for your appreciation, John. Yes, your case was a challenge, but, most importantly, you were a pleasure to work with. At the end of the day, your high level of satisfaction is what it is all about for me and our complete team!

Greg: I have been coming to Dr. Marlin for 20+ years. Everyone at the practice is great and treats me like family. Dr. Marlin and his team have always been there for my routine items, but when I have had an emergency they have brought me in right away. With the lab in-house I have always received my oral appliances quickly. I appreciate the extra time he takes to make sure I have a proper understanding of how to keep my teeth and gums in great shape. I highly recommend the team and Dr. Marlin.

Eric Paisner: Dr. Marlin has been my dentist for almost 20 years. He takes time to provide extremely comprehensive care, whether in regular cleanings, or when I have had issues with decay. It's always clear he remembers me and my history. I never feel like he is rushing to move to other patients, as I have felt elsewhere. Adding to the overall experience, the team in Dr. Marlin's office is warm and inviting. It's a great practice.
Response: Eric, it is a pleasure seeing you at each one of your visits. Many thanks for your review and your genuine trust throughout the years!

Gabriel Schoenfeld: I've been a patient of Dr. Marlin for two years and, unfortunately, have needed a fair amount of work done on my teeth. I've been deeply impressed by Dr. Marlin's skill--actually, artistry--when working on my teeth. I can't say the process has always been pleasant, but the results have been pleasant, and it has been comforting to know that I am in the care of great hands. I should add that Dr. Marlin's staff is also top notch, extremely professional and extremely friendly and accommodating. I recommend this practice highly.

Hela Medical Spa: what do users think?


Courtney Smith: I’m getting married in May and wanted to get my skin wedding ready, so I booked a bridal consultation and a facial with dermaplaning. This was my first facial and I honestly had no idea what to expect, but Sophia walked me through the process and I was SO relaxed! My skin felt so clean and smooth afterwards and I ended up purchasing a facial cleanser that was recommended for me so that I can continue to work on my skin from home. I’m looking forward to seeing her again next month and have a feeling that getting facials will become a part of my monthly self care!
Response: We are thrilled to hear of your 5-star experience at Hela Medical Spa Georgetown. Nothing makes us happier! We can't wait to see you again soon! So excited to help you get bridal ready for your big day!

Renee Butterfield: Absolutely the best in town! I come here for my botox, facials, chemical peels, cortisone (best deal in DC - even w/o insurance) and b12 shots. After struggling for decades with cystic acne, my 42 year old skin has never looked better. Also, their b12 shots are now an essential part of my mental health/self care. The whole Hela team is just amazing - can’t recommend them highly enough!
Response: Renee, we are so delighted that you are loving the Hela experience! We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to serve you!

Kelly Carr: I have had two Vivace treatments with Layla. She was fantastic!!! Layla had an incredibly warm personality but her professionalism and knowledge of facial muscles, skin tissue, etc won me over as a lifetime fan. I look forward to having Layla educate and work with me on making my complexion the best it can be for many years to come.
Response: Kelly, we are beyond thrilled to receive your 5 star review!! Vivace RF Microneedling is truly the fountain of youth. We look forward to a continued partnership with you providing more excellence in the days, months, years to come! 💚

GG MIA: I am thrilled that Kaitlin is back at Hela! She is the best at microneedling. My skin looks amazing and I can’t wait for it to fully peel to see the full results! I needed a little something to pick up my spirits and this did it!
Response: We’re so happy to hear that your skin looks amazing! We’re always delighted to bring you the best of the best - at Hela Medical Spa! Can’t wait to see you again very soon!

Stephen JW Steele: Several months after injecting my forehead with Botox, I still enjoy a mostly relaxed and pleasant look. The Doctor removed a scrunched up angry forehead that made people think I was angry with them when I was not. Thank you Hela Medspa for restoring my friendly appearance and making me look like myself again. Highly recommended.
Response: Stephen, Thank you for taking time to post this 5 star review for Dr. Drsydale at Hela Medical Spa! We are thrilled to help restore your friendly smile. And thank you for making our team smile--with this review! :) We so appreciate you and hope to provide you with continued excellence service in the years ahead!

Alex LeFavi: I came in for a facial today and Kaitlin rocked it! She explained what she was applying each time and made it a very relaxing experience. Great atmosphere overall and friendly staff.
Response: Alex, so glad you had a wonderful experience at Hela Medical Spa! We can’t wait to see you again soon!

Tiffany Curpuz: I recently visited Hela Medical Spa for a laser hair removal session. As soon I entered the spa, I was greeted with warm smiles. I was appointed with a women name Sophia, and I absolutely loved her. I felt comfortable, and the process took only seconds! I later found out they offer a bunch of other services and quickly booked a facial with her. I recommend anyone to check this Spa out, and ask for Sophia!
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Tiffany!

Mia Saponara: I see Sophia about every 4 weeks for a facial and I look forward to it every month. I have always struggled with a variety of skin problems and haven’t had anyone be able to address them or take them seriously until I went to see her. My facials are relaxing but also educational as Sophia walks me through what she’s putting on my face, why I need it, and how I should be taking care of my skin at hone. Would highly recommend!
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Mia! We really appreciate you taking time to share your experience! We love helping you and can't wait to see you again soon!

Aya Farhat: I love this place! I have been coming to Hela for about a year for facials, laser hair removal, and microneedling and all treatments have been amazing. Sophia has been my esthetician for a few months, and my skin has never looked better. Sophia is attentive, responsive, and makes you feel comfortable no matter the treatment (even LHR!). She is honest with her recommendations, and I know my skin is in good hands every time I visit. Can't recommend Sophia or Hela enough!
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Aya!

Erica White-Ruffin: My initial consultation with injector Erica went very well. I inquired about lip fillers, the receptionist at the time was very pleasant and welcoming. The space was very clean and comfortable. When I came in to get my actual service, my experience was a little different. My appointment was at 10AM and on my way to the Spa I was stopped by law enforcement as they were doing routine checks on Connecticut Avenue( I’m assuming they were looking for someone). My mom called Hela several times to let them know I’d be exactly 10 minutes late. She called about 3 times and no one ever answered. By the time I arrived, there was a different receptionist, she wasn’t as pleasant as the first one I met. She barely spoke and when I expressed my apologies for my tardiness and that I called several times, she said she didn’t receive any calls... She gave me some forms to fill out and told me to have a seat. Another client came in, the receptionist attitude was completely different. She greeted the young woman, welcomed her, offered her water and came from around the desk to hand her the forms. My mom and I were both puzzled. Erica then came out and again, I expressed my apologies for running late and let her know that I did call several times, she said the phones were off the hook and not worry about it. Contrary to what the receptionist said, I believed Erica. She began to sanitize my lips and said I had beautiful lips and I really didn’t need the filler. I insisted that it’s what I wanted and my desired look. She proceeded. She did do a dental block to make the process more comfortable and it certainly was. I barely felt a thing. After she was finished I noticed a very subtle difference, she told me she actually used 2 syringes of restylane. My lips certainly did not appear to have two syringes and my mom said she never saw an additional syringe. I did like the results but did not love them. She said if I wanted more I could come back and do a lip flip. At checkout, the receptionist told me the price which was $250 more than what their website advertised. I had no problem with it. I noticed a week after my appointment, it was advertised accurately. Erica is great and is good at what she does and I more than likely would recommend her but I myself wouldn’t come back.
