Excellent Spa for Facials.
I spent a lot of time researching top spas in LA since moving here from NYC last year and had very high standards. I came in for a microderm facial with Lila and had perhaps the best results from a facial I have ever had (and that's saying something, b/c I frequented top spas for years in NY). She was incredibly warm and very knowledgeable about products, my skin and the advice she gave. Even more impressive was the fact she even recommended products and supplements not sold at the salon - the true test of a genuine and educated esthetician. Not only that, her recommendations were spot on - my skin improved significantly after using the products she recommended.
The facial itself was pretty standard (and a bit pricey), but she pushed my skin a bit w/ the microderm portion and the results were better than I've had. I felt she truly knew what my skin could and could not handle. The only thing that surprised me is that the microderm came after the facial/cleansing portion - it is usually done first in my experience to maximize results so the treatments on the skin are not ground off by microderm process. In any event, my skin looked better than it has in months and as I mentioned, the products she recommended made an ever bigger difference on my skin. She herself commented on the improvement the second time I went back for another facial - the anti-oxidants made a noticeable improvement. I will be back again!
FABULOUS "GIRLS DAY OUT". FABULOUS "GIRL'S DAY OUT" at Dtox Day Spa. After having such a great day at the spa, I felt compelled to write a review . We had a bachelorette party scheduled last Saturday for my sister. The director of the spa, Kat Podmolik, helped arranged the party and it was pleasant from start to finish. She was very attentive to our group's every needs. Our group booked two treatments (facial and massage) and I also asked if we could have lunch brought in, as well as a private champagne toast for the bride-to-be. Every request was accommodated flawlessly. Kat also checked in with us throughout the day to make sure everything was okay and up to our expectations. Every staff member was friendly and smiling! As far as the spa facility, I loved the decor and ambiance. The lounge was relaxing with the sound of waterfalls and they provided a nice supply of water (flavored with cucumber or lemon), fresh fruit and chocolate brownies (yummy!). YES....I said brownies. I loved the steam room which smelled of eucalyptus. The entire facility was clean and had lots of nice amenities. The massage was over-the-top fabulous with hot stones and I especially liked the warm towel wrap to my feet at the end --- (oooh, so soothing). They have a couples massage room, so for fun my girlfriend and I had a massage together (we giggled). The facial was great and they provided a quick neck massage with it (or you could choose a hand massage). All the girls in our party raved about the treatments. We all agreed it was one of the best spa days ever! We all plan on coming back to the facility and we're telling all our friends.
The best spa and service in Los Angeles. I went to Dtox for the very first time today (also my first time getting a massage.) I was a little nervous at first since I did not know what to expect and also because I was going by myself. As soon as I walked into Dtox I felt welcomed. Everyone was extremely nice. Every room was very clean, relaxing and smelled delicious. My experience at Dtox was beyond what I imagined. Anita was great I would definitely recommend her to everyone. I am now thinking of at least once a month going to Dtox.
Detox day spa, a very relaxing place.
I've just been to that place today(02/24/09), what can I tell you, I enjoy it a lot. First of all, Carie the receptionist is very nice and friendly.
As for th facial I got, Asia did an excellent work. My skin hasn't been that beautiful for a long time.
Also, I love the place for its very relaxing and quiet Atrium where you can enjoy a delicious cup of white tea( vanilla flavor was my choice) and some grapes with few almonds.
To finish, I want to add that the steam room with eucalyptus is a must.
I' ll come back, for sure.
I'm Addicted!. DTOX is amazing. For the quality of atmosphere and treatments, the prices are good too. They offer great monthly specials. This month's is 25 bucks off any treatment. When a 100 dollar massage is knocked down to 75, that's a deal. Mo is a wonderful, healing massage therapist. The other thing I love about dtox is that they don't say a word during your treatments. You can really zone out and relax. The ammenities are lovely, I recommend doing the steam and or sauna before your treatment. I love that it is not a "chain" spa, that it's a great local business, and that it has a lot of character. Really, it's a great sanctuary.
Very Relaxing.. Based upon a friend's recommendation, I tried Dtox Day Spa. The service was very friendly and personal. Apparently this place is rising in popularity but it had the feel of a small neighborhood place. Jacob is terrific and very professional. Parking behind the spa is convenient.
Overpriced, terrible massage. I have had many massages, both professional and from students in training and this was by far the most ameturish massage I have ever paid for. While the space and facilities are beautiful, the techinique was rote and weak. I was not asked about pressure and when I requested more, the change was barely discernable. This was a tremendous disappointment and waste of money.
We are so sorry to hear that your experience with us did not meet your expectations. As we take pride and value the satisfaction of each individual guest, we invite you to give us another try.
Please contact us and ask to speak to the Spa Director, so that I can personally arrange your visit to ensure your next visit with us is a memorable one!
Fantastic. This is indeed a lovely, non-pretentious place to get a facial and/or a massage. Not hoity-toity or snobbish, very contemporary & zen like. Their staff seem to be knowledgeable. I've been getting great advice whilst getting my facials! I only wish they did pedicures/foot treatments (which is why they get 4 stars instead of 5).
Thank you so much for taking time to review us! We are thrilled to know that you enjoyed your experience here at dtox day spa!
Please do visit us again soon!
good massage. I had a lovely rejuvenating massage here. I was given a gift certificate and I would definitely go back.
