Robin Harris, the electrologist at Charlotte-James, has been my electrologist for some time now. I have very sensitive skin, and tried two other electrologists before finding Robin. I actually have some discoloration and pitting on my face from the second electrolysis salon where they used only thermolysis. I seriously recommend avoiding pure thermolysis at all costs. SERIOUSLY.
Robin, however, can perform full galvanic or blend, and she is VERY experienced. She actually taught one of my previous electrologists. She is knowledgeable. Most importantly, she performs effective electrolysis with, in comparison to my previous experiences, the least amount of pain possible. I've had painful electrolysis, and this is not bad at all. With Robin it feels no worse than a friendly pinch, and that's without any anesthetic. She does not try to sell you a bunch of creams, lotions, or beauty products. If you inquire after anesthetics and skin care, she is very knowledgeable, but she is too professional to start peddling like the avon lady. Beware of others who might be trying to make a buck off you. There is also a dermatologist practice associated with the Charlotte James Clinic office. The treatment room is sterile and professional, like a doctor's office. This is what I recommend. From my previous experience, I would warn you away from any electrologist's office that looks like a beauty salon on the inside. You aren't getting your hair styled, you are undergoing a medical procedure on your skin. Keep that mindset. Think of electrolysis in terms of a skin treatment not a hair treatment.
Robin started treatment on my first visit by gradually increasing current intensity until the test hairs came loose. If you go somewhere else and the technician jumps right to zapping without matching the current to your individual skin, then the electrologist may be over-treating your hairs and burning your skin badly. With Robin, my skin looks passably normal within two to three hours after the treatment, and the hairs have not been coming back. With my previous thermolysis treatment, the skin would look horrible for a full week, sometimes with whiteheads, and always with scabbing --these are warning signs, not indications of effective treatment. You don't want to end up pitted or spotty. Try Robin instead. Also, Robin has a care for your comfort on the table. She does not ask you to twist about or lay on your side, and she offers different foam pads to adjust your body comfortably before even starting. I highly recommend getting electrolysis here.
Street parking has a two hour limit with meters. The meters were recently updated to the sort that takes credit cards. One block south, by BestBuy, curb parking is four hours.. A good hand car wash is right next door, so you can have a car wash during your appointment. There are numerous restaurants nearby as well as the Best Buy and Marshalls. It is near that stretch of Sawtelle with the asian restaurants and supermarkets.
I think Robbin limits her sessions to two hour appointments, but, to avoid skin damage, it is better not to do marathon treatments, anyway. If you have a lot of hair to treat, then you can go to Robin every other day. You don't need a week and a half just to heal. With permanent hair removal, patience is very important. Oh, and the rest of the staff in the office has always been very friendly to me. I actually enjoy going there for my zapping!
The best facials by the best aestheticians!. I have been going to Charlotte-James for years and I will never go anywhere else. I get tons of compliments on my skin all the time. Both Charlotte and Milla are the best in the business. I also see Robin for electrolysis and I love her too. They all have years of experience and the credentials to prove it. I strongly recommend this center to everyone!!!!
My husband, the non-believer and skeptic, now believes. I received the James Peel which consisted of exfoliations and skin removals not only did it even it my skin, but all my sun spots have changed. They are either gone now (most are gone) or they are faded. It evened out my skin tone as well. I can't remember my face feeling this smooth, it rivals with my baby nephew's skin, It definitely turned back the clock at least a few years. My wrinkles and acne scaring have both faded as well. During this whole process, I received phone calls from Charlotte James to check on my face. The service was phenomenal- you can tell they sincerely care!
Best Microderm Treatment!.
Charlotte-James is the best! My friend referred me to Charlotte for a microderm treatment so my skin would look flawless for my wedding. I didn't know what to expect and was a little hesitant, but once I met Charlotte and she explained the treatment, I was put to ease. Charlotte was willing to answer all of my skincare questions and offered suggestions on how to take better care of my skin. I definitely think that I got the full benefit of my visit. After I saw how great my skin looked after one microderm treatment, I made sure to schedule a second appointment. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Charlotte-James Skin Care.
They are now located at: 2211 Corinth Ave. Ste 100, Los Angeles, CA 90064 and their new phone number is 310 478-5100.
My face LOVES Charlotte James!.
I must say that I never write reviews unless I am beyond satisfied....And this is well deserving... I have found THE best skin care facility in LA!!! Charlotte James has been around forever and thanks to them my fabulous skin will too! Their brand new location brings their "no BS when it comes to skin" attitude together with a "welcome home" feel. I get absolutely EVERYTHING done there. Brows, microderm, oxygen facials, medical visits with a doc etc etc. They are truly the all around best place in town! They don't need to stick their noses up in the air like most other places because they just know they are the best. Milla is my girl! She's has transformed my skin from grumpy to glowy in just a few visits. i loveeee her!
I totally get that skincare is a luxury these days, but what better way to take on our world than by putting our best face forward! Overall, they just ROCK! Thanks CJ!
Best Facialist...Great Facilities. A friend recommended me to this skin care place because I was having problems with acne. She said her mother took her there when she was just a little girl. When I got there, they were so nice to me and genuine, I felt as though I had been going there for years. The facility seemed to have everything. It wasn't some fluffy facial place, like some of the places I'd been to before. Their approach to my problem was from a medical point of view. They really new how to handle my problem and I looked much better when I left. That made me feel confident they new more than simple skin care. I was so happy with the treatment I got, I made a series of appointments and am going back for Botox!
Fabulous- love it!. Charlotte James is great. I have used many of their services from sun spot removal to eye brow shaping to skin cancer screening (which is done often as part of the treatment). I love the medical spa concept- I feel like it's relaxing yet I'm also getting quality, medical care. Can't say enough good things, check it out yourself. I just had an appointment last Saturday in their new, modern venue-they are no longer cramped in a small office place :) I LOVE new the digs!
Best Skin Care in LA with a Great New Location. Charlotte is the best. She has been my facialist for years and her new clinic is just amazing. I cannot say enough great things about the service I get. I agree with one of the other reviews here that it is one of LA's best kept secrets - they don't try to be cool because they don't need to be. I've even seen a bunch of celebs there while waiting for my appointment to begin.
BEST BROW SHAPING AND SKIN CARE with MILLA.
ONE WORD: MILLA
Hands down, she is the absolute BEST when it comes to brows and skin care.
Yes, the Charlotte James atmosphere is very much 'get to the point.' But when it comes to my skin, I couldn't agree more. I don't want the frills, I want results. Milla is the most meticulous, detail oriented esthetician ever. She will not stop till everything is perfect. She is the best kept secret in LA but it's definitely time for people to know. If you want a gorg complexion and fabulous brows, she is the only name you will ever need to know.
Best quality package in LA: great skin treatments with a medical component. Charolotte-James is great. I have been a long-standing customer here and have tried other places in Los Angeles but nothing is comparable when it comes to quality. Where else can you get treatments but within a medical model? The staff here has found skin cancer in several patients before it spread. I once had terrible skin and I have received acne treatments, facials, microdermabrasion here....you name, they do it. I now go for maintainence but my skin condition has improved significantly thanks to Charolotte-James . This is not a spa but what is lost in not being a spa is gained in the superior service and knowledge. Also, they make and distribute excellent products formulated by a their own dermatology nurse who has a higher education in chemistry....and they are reasonably priced.
