As a local San Franciscan, I've tried out many spa and beauty salons, primarily looking for someone with high-quality skin care service. A few years ago an Asian friend of mine referred me to Elaine's Skin Care. I went to her for two months and my skin improved drasticly! Ever since, I've been going to her once every few weeks for facials. Recently I'm trying the reflexology session and it feels great from toes to head. Although Elaine's place does not have super-fancy or zen decoration, her service is excellent and I definitely get my money worth!
Pros: Inexpensive, Plenty street parking, Flexible appt times
