Reviews

"I have been seeing Adriana facials for years and knew I could absolutely trust her with my upcoming wedding. She strikes the perfect balance setting up skin for success - whether it's microdermabrasion (4-8 weeks before wedding), ultrasonic (2 weeks before wedding), extraction to proactively prevent future breakouts around the wedding day, along with hydration. I have sensitive skin and am allergic to certain products and I always know Adriana will make sure I don't get an allergic reaction. Thanks to Adriana, my skin looked incredible for my wedding - hydrated, glowing, refreshed, not a single line or wrinkle. She even identified that I was overusing my BHA, resulting in very dehydrated skin. Honestly, Adriana's better than BOTH my dermatologists at MGH - seriously, just go to her first (and then just go to your nurse practitioner or doctor for a retinol prescription)."

"I've been going to Skin Studio for a year and I love their service for how personal and genuine it is. Not only have I been making great progress in my IPL treatment, but it is also surprising how much Irina remembers about our conversation, even though we see each other once a month. She also gave advice on other casual skin problems I have, normally dry skin due to weather. Following her advice, my skin really improved."

"I love it here. I use their waxing services and Lana does and incredible job each time! If i had more time I would definitely head in for the skincare because the girls are all so nice. It's very clean, but feels calming rather than clinical. Top notch for sure!"
