Amazing Results 12/19/2008

I went to Alexandra for a chemical peel treatment and it was amazing. My pores are cleaner and smaller and my skin looks clearer and brighter. I love it. She was very knowledgeable and would take the time to answer any questions. Plus, I felt refreshed every time I left because it was so relaxing, I would take an hour nap everytime I was there. I highly recommend seeing Alexandra. more

from nyc to sf: alexandra rules! 11/27/2008

alexandra set the standard for brazillian waxing for me before I moved from the bay area to new york city. i've searched up and down manhattan (and brooklyn) and have not found any a better treatment than alexandra's. alexandra is thorough yet gentle, personable yet professional. she uses best wax at the right temperature--other places use stuff that not only irritated my not-so-sensitive skin, but failed to leave the same supple softness of what alexandra uses. i've already booked my next appointment for when i back in the bay area for xmas time. east or west, alexandra is best! Pros: numbing spray available! more

Very nice for skin .. 11/26/2008

I have been going to Advance Skin Care Clinic since when I was 16 and have always LOVED the results of its treatment. The clinic is very comfortable and the rooms are super relaxing. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming. The only reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is becuase the scheduling/answering service is not good. i don't remember it being like this when I in first time, but they must have improved the schedulers becuase when you call to make an appoinment, it's like you are speaking to someone in another country. I really think that they really improved the scheduling service, but other than their negative points, everything else about the clinic is FABULOUS! more

small salon, but great result! 10/10/2008

I love Alexandra's facial! She is not just great, but fantastic. Now she started to give new Oxygen Treatment. I highly recommend it! After 15 minutes of treatment you look 10 years younger. I am serious. I also did not believe at the beginning and was very skeptical. But after the treatment I looked into mirror and did not recognize myself - my chin line was firm , my pores disappeared. She is my beautician for the last 6 years and I will never change her, although it takes me a long time to get to downtown San Francisco from East Bay. I already recommended her to all my girlfriends and each of them loved it and thanked me for her. Pros: great price Cons: expensive parking more

Shhhh! Best kept secret 9/22/2008

I've known Alexandra for the last ten years. My best friend recommended her and I have not had a better facial from anyone else. She is very thorough, professional and knowledgeable! Alexandra really takes time to care for my skin and provides an overall excellent service! She is one of the best kept secrets! Yelena more

Take care of your SKIN visit Advanced Skin Care Clinic 10/16/2007

Alex is great!!! I?ve had skin problems since I was a teenager. I was always kind of scared to go see esthetician thinking that if something goes wrong my skin will get more problems. I do have oily skin, blemishes, black heads, and so on. Not the worst case ever, but having skin problems never is fun. So I looked online and found Alex. Didn?t know much about her just took my chances and have no regrets about it. First visit I had a clinical facial and Alex suggested to try Chemical Peel (the mildest of them all series of 6). To be honest, I never even heard about chemical peels before and that made me kind of afraid and hesitant. Well it all forth the money and time and Alex is a great professional, does such an AMAZING JOB!!! All the skin products she uses are just the Best!!! I get compliments on my skin from my friends and I just feel so great know looking in the mirror and seeing Healthier, Radiant and Calm skin! It?s hard to find exactly what you?re looking for, but I think Alex is just IT! Convenient office hours and location, never rushes and does everything as she thinks is the best and listened to your needs. She doesn't accept credit card, but checks and cash are fine, so it does forth everything!:) Pros: You will see how beautiful your skin really is more

She is a PRO! 10/3/2007

I went to Alexandra after reading great reviews about her skills. I was not disappointed! She took extra time to address my skin problems, recommended right procedures and suggested skin products that in fact has been working for me since. I am going back and I look forward to it. Pros: professional services, knowledge, experience Cons: access to the building, need to call to enter more

Best service- best resolts! 9/15/2007

It is very hard to find a good estetition and Alexandra is the one. Painless waxing, wonderful facials... All that makes you make the next appointment. Cons: none more

Great Customer Service/ Very Professional 8/13/2007

I was new to the city and was used to my previous waxer in LA, and was a bit hesitant to find someone new. Alexandra not only was more skilled, but more professional and accommodating. She is very detailed oriented and never makes me feel uncomfortable (ladies, we all know sometimes how we feel about these experiences...) and always gives helpful advice. I hightly reccomend her for waxings. For the service alone, it is well worth the experience. more

Alexandra makes you feel comfortable. 8/10/2007

I had my first time bikini wax and came back for a full leg and underarm wax, I am very happy with her services, I can't wait to come back for a facial. Cons: None more

Very personalized customer service 7/19/2007

Madame Dubinsky provides custom ordered facials. Definitely more clinical than spa, her treatments are meant to show results and she is tenacious about getting your complexion to look its best. Her soothing products are from Europe and she takes a tremendous amount of time and care in researching and explaining her methods to achieve great looking skin. She also delivers smooth and relatively painless waxing. Pros: Results oriented Cons: None more

Most comfortable, nicest service bikini/brazilian wax anywhere I've tried before! 3/31/2007

I did a lot of research on the internet about waxing services around SF. I saw this business, read the reviews, and decided to go. Her customers are right! I have never felt so comfortable without half my clothes on in front of a stranger! Alexandra did a wonderful job during my half bikini, halk brazilian waxing. (To keep what I wanted and not the rest in the places I didn't) I am not sore and not bruised as has so often happened to me before. I have very sensitive skin. And the best thing is I look fantastic and feel great! I highly recommend her. The office may be in a tiny room with no frills. But I would trade any frill, no matter what, for her expert, comfortable, friendly service anytime. I will definitely be a repeat customer! more

The finest in town. 3/16/2007

Alexandra is amazing! She is highly trained, provides very personal service, and is an utter professional. Not only does she make you feel very comfortable, but she gets results! I just completed six sessions of her ultrasonic facial and I can hardly believe the results. It is really a non-surgical facial. My skin is lighter, brighter, more elastic and youthful. The results are incredible and I feel wonderful. I appreciate her knowledge, her care, and her dedication to her field. She is a find and I am now a regular. more

Great first-time brazilian wax experience 3/13/2007

Alexandra's got the experience. I was a little nervous, but the moment she started talking I was completely comfortable with her. COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE and it certainly is something you think would be hard to do half-naked. I'm not even this comfortable with my doctor. She is very friendly and is sure to talk you through the procedure, letting you know what she is using and what she is doing and why. I'm so glad to have decided to go to her for my first brazilian wax. I'm excited to go back for a facial. I can definitely see myself as a regular. more

Diamond in the Rough 2/12/2007

When I first walked in to see Alexandra I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of the place. I have been to too many facial treatments that had no effect on my skin. Alexandra quickly reassured me with her knowledge of the skin and her careful level of service. For example, the products she used were carefully selected from overseas and worked like a charm. You felt like it worked and the effects showed on the acne treatments. Alexandra is also very flexible on timing, scheduling and product purchases. For the amount of expert knowledge she posseses and the fair prices she charges for her services, this place is truly an amazing find. The only reason I am writing this review, after almost a year of being a loyal customer is because Alex asked me to. I would otherwise keep this secret to myself. Pros: Excellent service, price, real knowledge of the skin, sense of customer service Cons: Not an expensive high end spa for those expecting that kind of locale more

Relaxxx! 11/4/2006

Have you been busy lately? No time for anything? But wanna look like there are no troubles in your life? If you come to Alexandra, she'll take care not only of your skin, but also of your tired sole! Whatever you need, just a quick lift or a full care, she'll do an amazing service for much cheaper price than those hungry-for-your-money saloons in downtown of SF! Hardworking woman from Russia with cute accent and siberian stamina, she'll make you look fresh and soothe your sole with her motherly touch... Oops, forgot to mention, she is using quite sofisticated treatments and equipment, but who cares... result is superb! Pros: value and quality Cons: none more

She saved my life! 10/11/2006

Alexandra really did save my life! Her excellent wax for legs and bikini stopped all the irritation I had due to shaving. In addition, her facials allowed my skin to breathe and be acne free. She always picks the products that are right just for my skin. Her advice on how to maintain a healthy diet also allowed me to change to a healthier way to eat, which helped out my skin a lot! I go to her on a regular basis and truly enjoy her services! If you want to feel brand new, I highly recommend you go see Alexandra! Pros: Very friendly service, nice environment more

Great Skin Care 10/6/2006

Alexandra is great. She is professional and friendly. She accommodates your schedule and your style. Alexandra takes time to make sure that everything is done to perfection. She keeps up with all the innovations in the cosmetic industry, so you get the latest products. She is affordable and makes taking care of your skin a pleasant experience. I highly recommend her for facials and waxing. more

Long time very satisfied client 3/31/2006

I have been a client for Alexandra for the past 6 years. I look 15 years younger due to her efforts. She is highly trained and gives customized treatments depending on your skin type, the season, changes in your health, etc. I highly recommend her and her skills but also, the cost is reasonable for the services she provides. more
