Editorial review from Citysearch 11/28/2012

I can't believe Sonya Dakar is still in business. She burned my face once with a harsh peeling and in the middle of the treatment she asked me to walk with her to the front desk. more

She is truly a skin savior 2/12/2010

I've been Sonya's client for three years now. I started seeing her in 2005 when I was desperate for a solution to my continual acne and scarring. She saw me for a few months and my skin looked better than it ever had. But the treatments were expensive and I decided to try things on my own. I stopped coming to the clinic for a year during which I saw a dermatolgist and went on accutane. Not only was the accutane hard on me emotionally and physically but it didn't work. I came back to Sonya this past year and she immediately assured me that she could help me change my skin, which was at the time completely dry, irritated, scarred and yet still breaking out. Pros: The best results I've ever seen. Cons: It costs more, but worth every penny. more

I Just had my first Sonya Dakar Facial! 10/22/2009

I just got my first Sonya Dakar facial! I am pleased to say that I had my first sonya dakar facial this week- and my skin looks amazing! I read about their special in us weekly and got a free $800 light treatment. The staff was so nice, and very helpful. Parking was great, and they even made me one of their new shakes for free. But best of all, I had a great treatment, and my skin looks so much better. Pros: best extractions and service more

definitely works her magic! 9/23/2009

Sonya helped me finally get the skin I have wanted for so long! I enjoyed her brutal honesty, because without it, I wouldn't have known what I needed to correct. I went in for a facial last week, and my skin was glowing for the next week. I loved it. more

Great treatments and amazing results! 7/13/2009

I can finally say I love my skin! I have always battles breakouts and recently I notices a few lines around my eyes pop up. I was never a regular for facials but thought this was the time. I called for an appointment and the receptionist booked me for a facial for that week. I was psyched! I have been going for a few months now and my skin is looking so great. My before and after pictures are so impressive I bought my mom a gift certificate to come in too! I really have to thank Sonya and her team fro giving me great skin and wonderful service! Thank you!!! Pros: Wonderful services and service more

I am a long time client and swear by Sonya Dakar 6/22/2009

I have been a client of Sonya Dakar for almost a decade- She is the best! I usually do not write reviews, but I would not stand here and not put in my own two cents about Sonya. I have been a client of hers for almost a decade. since I was a starving artist, and could not afford her services. I had awful skin and not only did she help me, but she let me pay at my own rate. what other spa will let you break down a bill into 5 payments? She was there for me like a second mother, encouraging me to go for it. and now i have beautiful skin and a solid career to show for it. Sonya is very talented and very passionate. I would never trust my skin to ANYONE else. Pros: best services in town more

Best facial I ver had- Hands Down! 6/19/2009

""Best Facial I ever hand- HANDS DOWN! I have read about Sonya Dakar for a while, but was always pretty intimidated to go. Instead I tried so many other places in town, but I was never happy with my skin. I got a gift certificate in a gift bag and decided to go. It was the best thing I ever did for my skin. I had the regular facial and peel, and could see a difference in a week. I have been in a few times since and my skin continues to improve. For the first time in my life I have no pimples, and my skin looks healthy. PS- I thought Sonya and the staff were very nice and helpful."" Pros: amazinf services more

I swear my thighs got smaller 4/14/2009

swear my thighs are smaller! I read about Sonya Dakar in MANY MANY magazines, and had to go check it out for myself. I did not get a facial, but i did get their endormologie cellulite treatment. I purchased a set of 10 (recommended my staff and all the research i have done). So far I have completed 5 treatments and my thighs are smaller. I thought I would have to s]live with cottage cheese and cellulite for the rest of my life. I am so excited to see what they will look like after i have done all 10 treatments. I thought the staff was very nice, and the women who gave me the treatment was awesome too! Pros: nice staff, beautiul, clean, free parking more

great pre-wedding facials 3/25/2009

I first came in to the Sonya Dakar skin clinic to get get my skin picture perfect for my wedding. After my first appointment and consultation I was hooked. I completed the 6 treatments that were recommended to me. I did the facials, lights and diamond peels. It was an investment, but Sonya and her staff were kind enough to give me a break on the price and offer me an awesome payment plan. I have to tell you that my skin looked so great at my wedding. he lines around my eyes and mouth went away, and my skin was so soft and smooth, that i did not need too much foundation or concealer. ,my makeup artist could not believe it!! I no maintain my skin with monthly visits, and could never ever imagine going anywhere else. Pros: cleared up my skin Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Best Facial in LA!!! 2/4/2009

This is by far the best facial place I have ever been to !!! Pros: parking, staff calls and reminds you day before your appointment more

Best Facial with a Rock Star Aesthetician 1/23/2009

Lucy Nunez is by far the star of this place. She is professional, talented, friendly, attentive and an all out rock star when it comes to facials and skin care treatments. I have been to many salons and spas and enjoyed this experience tremendously and I will be a client for life. Not only is it the most beautiful place I have ever been to the overall ambience is fantastic. From the sweet and attentive nature of the lovely gals at the front desk to the relaxing facial experience that Lucy provides, I was in heaven. I did not have to wait for lengthly periods of time between the various phases of my facial... just enough to enjoy the experience and chill....which is important to me and honestly that is what the experience is and should be about. Truthfully, I wanted to stay longer. Lucy is very informative and a genuine person. She is a true professional and very intelligent. She knows her stuff and takes the time to answer questions not just sell a product or service. She explained each phase of the service and took the time to answer questions and explain what the benefits were/are of each the products she recommended to me. The place is gorgeous and very relaxing. I was treated like a queen from the moment I entered the place and enjoyed the specialized treatment that Lucy provides. The protein shakes are out of this world and a healthier alternative to other places that serve booze. I had the fitness facial, diamond peel and LED and my skin was glowing. The products are fantastic and are not expensive - not only do they work - they are organic, scientifically based, and are packaged in recycled containers - which is important to me as an ecofriendly consumer. The music is great, the parking is free and located in an easily accessible area of the City, thus making the experience more relaxing since I didn't have to worry about getting a ticket. I received many compliments on how great my skin looked and still looks after two weeks and it feels soft and smooth. So, for all of you who are looking for a great place to get an awesome facial I recommend you go see Lucy Nunez and the staff at Sonya Dakar and get ready for an awesome and relaxing experience. I wished it had lasted longer and have already recommended her to my trainer and massage therapist. See you there!!! Pros: Awesome staff and a beautiful place to relax Cons: No cons from my experience more

Best Facial Ever! 12/25/2008

I am a 35-year-old woman who suffers from acne, scarring and discoloration due to hormonal changes in my body. I have visited dermatologists; other medical spas and popular facialists in conjunction with just about every skin care line out on the market! After many attempts to fix my skin, nothing worked. After just ONE visit at the Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic my skin changed completely. She not only did a great job educating me on my skin and diet, but also recommended a home care regimen for each one of my skin issues. I LOVE the products! Each product helps to heal my skin, and keep it clear. She also recommended an LED light treatment, which is 100% safe and penetrates down to the core of the problem killing acne bacteria and the other stimulates collagen production for firmer skin. I did all my research at home (unlike all the ignorant people making negative comments about her treatments) and was surprised with the results. The staff was also helpful and polite offering me tea, water, and even offered to buy me lunch(thank you Erin). I have been going to Sonya Dakar for 3 months now and my skin is 80% healed and has a glow it never had before. If you can?t get an appointment with Sonya you can also see her head skin care therapist Lucy, who also has healing hands and is absolutely amazing with extractions. Thanks again for all your help ladies! You?re the BEST! You gave me back my glow! Pros: amazing facial and products more

Skin Guru! 12/12/2008

I have been a client at Sonya Dakar for several years. Pros: EVERYTHING! Cons: Sometimes you have to wait a little more

Skin Guru! 12/12/2008

I moved over to LA 18months ago and started to look into treatments for my skin to try and sort it out once and for all! I web searched as I was looking for a good quality salon. My search took me to Sonya Dakar and I was interested in the Diamond Peel in particular for re-surfacing. Pros: Amazing with extractions! more

Skin Guru! 11/26/2008

When I turned 29 this year my skin was a disaster. I had the worst acne of my entire life (including my teenage years) brown sunspots on my forehead and upper cheeks and worst of all deep wrinkles on the side of my mouth and forehead. After years of sun and harsh products my skin seemed beyond help. I went to my favorite Beauty store and the woman helping me gave me Sonya's Omega-Oil in ""clear"" and it was the first thing I had used in a long time that didn't freak out my skin so I decided to call the clinic and seek Sonya's full professional help. I don't know what else to say other than I now feel like I have a completely new face! I never thought I would ever live without zits or spots and now I am clear of both! more

She fixed my skin- I am zit-free... 11/24/2008

I am zit-free!!! Pros: free parking more

Best Facialist in LA...and beyond 11/5/2008

After reading some of these reviews, I truly agree with all who rave, and feel sorry for those who don't since truly a facial at Sonya Dakar is the best in LA..and possibly anywhere. Pros: She has a way of making your skin like amazing. Best Products Cons: Occasionally you have a wait, but truly well worth it more

Let's not stone her 10/30/2008

Honestly, I am shocked at the reviews for Sonya Dakar. I have been a loyal client for 5 years, and having written a review about three months ago, I wanted to see what others have been saying. I just feel like I can't sit back and let people drag her reputation through the dirt. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and some people may not like the way she performs her business. Yes, I too have been stuck waiting for three hours, but that only happened twice in five years, and she apologized profusely. For those complaining about not getting 'cookies and tea' for their long wait, are not there for the right reasons. During one of my long waits, they threw in a free manicure. Yes, she is rough, but she gets the job done, and brilliantly. She is not for the faint at heart, she is aggressive, she can be pushy, and she is expensive. But boy is she worth it. And for those who call her cheap, they should know that when I couldn't afford things that she knew would help me, she did it for free. She is a businesswoman, self made. If you want fabulous skin, grow some (?!) and go to see her. She is the expert. Pros: Dream skin Cons: pain for beauty more

Best experience 10/25/2008

So, listen up all you spa people! This was the best facial I have ever had! I am a frequent spa goer, and love trying new places and was recommened to Sonya Dakar after not getting the results I was looking for in regards to my horrible acne that I have suffered from for years. Sonya gave the time and attention that I needed and then set me up on a regimen that I have been following now for a few months. WOW! What results!!! I can't express how happy I am that my face is finnally clearing up!! Great products, great service, and best of all a great feeling. I would recommend Sonya to anyone looking to get results!! Pros: Great products, friendly staff Cons: sometimes a wait time more

Tanya is great! 4/28/2008

I've been going to Tanya at Sonya Dakar for a few years now, and I must say, she knows what she's doing. My eyebrows have never looked better. She shapes them in a way that works best for your type of face, and it doesn't even hurt that bad. She's extremely nice and very professional as well. She used to work at another salon on Robertson and I followed her to Sonya Dakar because she makes my brows look fabulous! She works a few days a week so call ahead to make an appointment. Pros: Tanya, relaxing atmosphere more
