I think these tips are edited. I had a sub-par experience. Staff clinical and not welcoming, the place is a cross between a health clinic and aging spa (well candles cheap and water lily pictures faded). Will not return.

Perhaps using services with a Groupon means you are viewed with contempt. But even before that...the Skin Institute seemed confusing. It is this cross between health clinic and spa. I saw posters about allergies and medical acne seated next to the paintings of water lilies. The store is half clinic and half, well, store. I must admit I was hoping for a spa moment, but the service desk was clinical, neither receptionist said hello (just, "check in over there") and it seems there are more product stands everywhere than seats. Filled out this ridiculous multi page document (having to write my medical history twice--on two different forms!!) I felt like I was about to undergo surgery rather than get a quick facial and massage. The final two pages were RIDICULOUS! 8 pt font of legal mambo jumbo that makes me believe this place has been in trouble before. Okay, the 30-minute massage with Michelle was just fine. I WOULD see her again if not for the Skin Institute. She was professional and considerate. Now get back dressed and wait back in that cold clinical lobby for 15 minutes. Not one person says a word to me, but I did overhear a man reminding his new receptionist recruit that she has to be vigilant and know when and where people are, and that the schedule has to be reviewed as 4-days weren't going to work, better five days...I feel like I am lurking. Then Monica came out to fetch me for my facial. From her first sentences you could tell she wanted her day to be done. I don't think she told me her name (I remember because a worn piece of paper on her clinic wall said her name and Happy Halloween. She asked, "You don't want extractions do you?" Uh. Well. I guess not. The 60-minute facial was 40 minutes (clock hanging right there in full view) and I didn't mind!! Outrageous. Because I'm on a groupon service? No one, not one person, asked if I wanted a return visit (and I was planning to schedule a weekly with Michelle), but my litmus was...only schedule if they ask. When I finished I went to the desk, left gratuities. Waited a minute. Looked at the girl and said, "Is that it?" "Yeah" she said. That's where the Groupon thing comes in, I think. They assume I want a service on the cheap. I think of groupongroupon as a place to test a service. Sooo glad I tested on a Groupon. I won't return. Why do they sign up with Groupon when it seems they have such contempt for it?? Or maybe it wasn't the Groupon at all. But it does tarnish groupon. I think Groupon is best for products, not services.

It was my first time and they took me about 15 mins late and my facial was for an hour however she was done in 45 mins. During my facial there was a lot of talking in the next room and it wasn't peaceful. I wanted to relax. The clinicians were great. There was just a lot of noise for a place that is suppose to be relaxing. I'm undecided if I will return.

Arrived 5 minutes prior to my appointment but waited 15 minutes to be seen. My services ended on time, so corners were cut on my services.
