Went in for a facial and left satisfied. Kara and Sarah are such amazing professionals. These ladies take the time to explain to you the procedures, your skin plan and options. I can’t wait to go back for my chemical peel in two weeks. I have found my skin home. I will recommend my family and friends here . If you’re looking for a place that will take care of your skin, this is the place.
Okay I’m not writing this review because of someone telling me to. It’s an all honest from the heart review. I have trouble with pimples, large pores and very textured skin sensitive skin. I came in to get a micro peel first and I’m in the process of working my way up to getting a more intense peel that has sheets of skin falling off my face so I can have flawless glowing beautiful skin. I’m so excited to start this journey because I’ve been wanting to do this for sooo long and I’m grateful as hell to have Sarah doing my peels :). She’s AMAZING and a kind person I’m glad she works at Skinetics. Shes patient and really goes over everything clearly with you and not rushes you do you don’t even know what’s going on. My next peel is going to be the perfect peel and I am SOOOO excited honestly I love this place. I saw a huge difference in just my first micro peel and now I wanna get more stuff done. THANK YOU SKINETICS ! Well worth the money.

I can’t believe I’ve never reviewed Skinetics — I’ve been coming here for years and absolutely love Kara, Leah, Justine and Dr. Nelson. They love what they do and are extremely good at it.
Kara can tell you every ingredient she uses in each of her products (she has her own chemist) and why. Her skin is perfect and glowing, so you know she knows her stuff.
She’s been instrumental in catching the very beginnings of basal cell cancers on my face (laying out w/out sunscreen in my youth still haunting me) so I can have them removed early and easily with no scarring. She’s improved my skin’s texture and elasticity tremendously.
As a true bonus, she used to be a makeup artist at MAC and uses the line herself, so she has recommended the products that are perfect for my skin type and shade.
If you’re serious about taking care of your skin and correcting the damage you did in your youth, go to Skinetics.
Just wanted to say thank you Leah!! For doing such a great job with my eurofacial and dermaplaning all of my excess face skin that has been bothering me so much!!! I really appreciate how you were not afraid to get in there and dig in lol and remove everything to clear out my pores. My super dry patchy area is finally gone 🙂 its so baby smooth and couldn’t be happier. Will definitely make a monthly habit out of this lol. Okay maybe every couple months or so. The scrub you recommended is great too. I think it is exactly what was missing in my routine and should help keep the skin buildup down. At least until i see you again Leah! 🙂

I would be a wrinkled old lady with blotchy skin if it weren’t for Skinetics. I’ve been going for almost 20 years and I receive compliments on my skin almost daily. I highly recommend Skinetics and their products. I see Leah on Saturdays and absolutely adore her. You can trust your skin to either Leah or Kara. Both are great – as is Skinetics!!
I am relatively new to yelp and am thrilled to share how incredible skinetics. is! I have been going to Leah for years now. The facility is beautiful and so relaxing – I have never been disappointed. I highly recommend them if you want to feel pampered and see results.
Yesterday was my first visit at Skinetics. I received a European facial with Leah. First off, she is very sweet & kind. She also had the best customer service. She was very attentive the entire time & even asked if I needed help filling out the paper work. Leah has been doing this for 10+ years (I forget the exact number) but she has ton of experience so she is very good at what she does. I was very relaxed during the entire treatment, I even dozed off a couple times. I definitely recommend her and will tell My friends about her. I already want to come back!

Skinetics is amazing! From the staff, to the office, to their menu, to their products everything here is amazing. I would never go anywhere else for my skincare needs. Since I’ve been getting regular facials from Leah I’ve gone from wearing foundation almost everyday to going makeup free most of the time because my skin is so healthy and glowing and this is as a 34 year old! So many people have told me how beautiful my skin is now and I’m so happy.
This place is amazing! The staff is incredible, and the facility immaculate. I’ve been here a handful of times now for lip/facial fillers. My results have been absolutely beautiful. Not only do I look like I did ten years ago I have the lips I have always wanted. Dr. Nelson can craft dramatic results in a natural, highly believable way.
As much as I love my fillers, I’m most appreciative for the migraine preventative botox. If you’ve ever suffered from chronic migraines you’ll understand what I mean in saying “I was actually able to spend an entire day at Disneyland” amidst loud noises, flashing lights, crowds and screaming kids next to me in line. Didn’t even need the Tylenol I brought. My mom has also been going here for the “sure, I’m aging gracefully and I just look like this” treatment. She has loved the laser treatments the most. Her skin looks gorgeous, and she rarely wears any makeup these days. She’s gotten many compliments on how good she looks, but nobody suspects anything. …Last but not least: honesty. I brought my boyfriend in for work under his eyes. They could have given him injections and taken our payment, but they didn’t. Instead we were given an honest answer that it wouldn’t be worth it or that successful, so we got a few referrals for a procedure that would work much better. I greatly appreciate honesty and good business ethics above all else. Moral of the story: give this place a try. It’s friendly, clean and professional.

“My hair stylist referred me to Leah for facials and wow! Amazing!!! I try to get in every 6 weeks to see her and usually do a peel and dermaplaning. My skin looks and feels amazing after every treatment. The staff is professional and extremely nice. The facility is also very nice. If you want your skin to look ageless go here. You will not be disappointed!!!!”
Los Angeles, CA
“Been coming here for a few years now. I have hyper pigmentation and though it’s just an unfortunately nature issue, Leah has helped it look pretty darn good. She’s very knowledgeable about skin and guiding you to what helps and what might not. They don’t push their products at all, however I use many of them that I wouldn’t buy anywhere else.
You can’t really put a price on your face so every dollar I’ve spent it worth it! I would recommend Skinetics to anyone who wants a great skin.”
“I have been going to Skinetics for about 3 years. I started several months before my wedding because I wanted my skin to be at it’s best for photos etc-and it was! I typically alternate between peels and lactic acid treatment every 6 weeks or so. I have been seeing Leah for my appointments and Kara a couple of times. They are both amazing and really take the time to do what your skin needs, not sell you on the most expensive treatments/products. In addition, I have been using their skin care products since I started and my skin has improved so much over the last few years. If you aren’t all for chemical treatments you must try dermaplaning, they are certified to use a medical blade on the skin, which removes hair (temporary) and a lot of dead skin. Makes your make up go on beautifully. I would definitely recommend Skinetics if you want to prevent the signs of aging, correct damage or for maintenance.”
North Tustin, CA
“I have been a client of Skinetics for over a decade. Hard to believe, but I am a loyal customer for a number of reasons. First, Skinetics uses skin care techniques and products that are clinically proven to produce results. Unlike a “feel good” skin spa, your specific treatments and products are customized for you. Second, the staff are wonderful, professional, you will not feel hurried and they will not put pressure on the customer to buy products that have no value.
Skinetics may be the only reason I don’t move out of California!”
Aliso Viejo, CA
“I have been coming to Kara for the last 9 years and I LOVE how my skin feels. I will not allow anyone else to touch my face and will not get a facial done anywhere else. 5 Months ago I had my first experience with Botox and I am so glad that I had Dr. Nelson do it! I was very nervous about the outcome, but was rest assured that I would love it.. and sure enough I am OBSESSED with it! Thank you both so much and I look forward to a very long and lasting relationship with Skinetics!!”
“Saw Dr. Nelson for first time. Excellent suggestions – very individualized consult. Fully explained all options.
Kara, as usual, is excellent.”
“I have been a client of Skinetics for 7 years….6 of those years I have exclusively been a client of Leah D’Alvias. Leah is amazing! She is professional, kind, extremely skilled at her work. My skin looks much younger and more healthy today then it did 6 years ago! I highly recommend Leah if you want your skin to be it’s best! ”

“I’ve been going to Skinetics for approximately 11 years. The staff is friendly, professional and has always had my best interest in mind. Wild horses won’t keep me from missing an appointment…Love these ladies!”
Laguna Hills, CA
“I cannot say enough good things about Skinetics, Kara and Leah. Not only are they professional and kind, but they are very, very good at what they do, customizing each treatment to clients’ personal needs. I have been a client of Leah for years and my skin has improved significantly (even with age). I highly recommend Skinetics to anyone.”
“I have been a customer for more than 8 years and can’t say enough about the quality of the services provided, friendliness of the staff, and the results! Thank you Kara and Leah for all you do.”
“I’ve been a Skinetics client for many years. and the condition of my skin has improved immeasurably. Not only are the facials a wonderful experience, they also produce results in the texture and appearance of your skin. Kara and Leah tailor each facial to address your skin’s needs.”
“Thanks to Leah my ugly brown spot is almost nonexistent!! She has transformed my skin and taught me how to take better care of it! Thanks so much!!”
Yorba Linda, CA
“I’ve been a client of Kara’s for many, many years and I have also seen Leah (while Kara was having a baby.) I’m very happy with my skin care results, as I’ve had many issues and Kara has resolved each and every one. The best compliment I can give Kara is “People think I am 10 years younger then I really am” and that is without any fillers or botox. Thanks for the wonderful products, professionalism and knoweledge that you GIRLS have!”
Yorba Linda, CA
“Leah has dramatically changed my acne and scars to a healthy complexion! The skin damage on my face from lace of sunscreen was pretty noticeable and Leah definitely helped change that with peels, products, and monthly visits. Skinetics products are great! They have products for all types of skin. I totally recommend Skinetics to everyone! If you’re interested in laser treatments they do that, too! Check them out! ”
“As usual Kara was very spot on with her treatment. I come out of there feeling very relaxed and well taken care of. My skin always looks so radiant when she is finished!”
San Clemente, CA
“I have been delighted with the excellent treatments of Leah D’Alvia who has cared for my skin for over 6 years now! She has helped me to maintain a youthful and clearer skin. Over time the texture of my skin has improved with a lessening of pores and discoloration. Leah has also gently guided me to take better care of my skin at home with the use of great Skinetics products. I simply could not do without her excellent skillful and professional treatments. Thank you again Leah and Skinetics! ”
“I’ve been going to Skinetics for almost 5 years, and can not say enough about the staff. Leah has done wonders for my skin, and tailors my treatments and skin care products depending on what my skin needs. Dr. Nelson is also very efficient, professional, and knowledgeable, and takes the time to answer any questions. I’d recommend any of my friends and family to Leah, Kara, and/or Dr. Nelson.”
Long Beach, CA
“Leah is my hero!! I have been going to Leah for 6 years and look younger today then I did in 2006. When my daughter and I go out people often think we are sisters and when I tell them I am 53 they can’t beleive it. Leah has transformed by blotchy,painful acned and uneven discolored complextion to a radiant, healthy and youthful glow. Leah is loving and really cares about her clients and I trust in her expertise and knowledge of skincare and skincare products. Most days I don’t wear any make-up but if I do it is a very light powder. Leah also tints and shapes my brows; which I am complemented on often. I use Skinetics product line which is phenomenal. I will never go back to drugstore products. ”
“I always appreciate the quiet yet responsive atmosphere of my time with Leah. She is attentive to any changes in my skin, no matter how nuanced, and keeps me totally informed on what steps she is taking to care for my skin. I am completely satisfied with my skin care.”
“Leah at Skinetics is a lifesaver! She is professional, friendly and caring. Although I have been a client for years she never takes that for granted. She is attentive to my skincare needs and always caring to make my skin look the best! I work in the cosmetic industry and have seen that skincare far surpasses any cosmetic product on the market. Leah takes great care of me I wouldn’t even consider anyone or anywhere else. ”
Oak Hills, CA
“A recommendation to potential clients of Skinetics is very easy for me. I have been working with Kara McCarthy for over ten years due to a skin condition and the inevitable conditions of advancing age. My experiences with Kara (as well as Leah and Dr. Nelson on occasion) have been so positive that I recommend the entire staff without hesitation. I have found the office to be professional, knowledgeable, conscientious, prompt and approachable each and every time I have visited. I have learned to trust Kara’s judgment concerning the safe and effective treatment and products that have helped me so much over the years. It’s my pleasure to return some measure of the gratitude I feel for the Skinetics staff.”
Santa Ana, CA
“I have been going to Kara for probably almost 8 years. I had pretty bad sun damage thanks to growing up near the beach and not having worn sun block…yikes. Kara and her staff are very professional and well educated and stay up on the current treatments and outcomes. Over time my skin has improved greatly. Products or services that you don’t need are NOT pushed, and everything is customized to the client’s needs. I will continue to see Kara as a client for as long as I can!”
“Love the products & my experiences with Leah. My skin has never looked better. I get more compliments on my skin since starting with Skinetics.”
“Skinetics is a great! I was referred to their office by a friend because I was looking for a personalized facial to meet my specific skin needs. Their staff was extremely informative, and friendly. I just recently got a light complexion peel there and have received so many compliments on how great my skin looks. Also, make sure you get your brows waxed with them, they do a great job!”
Yorba Linda, CA
“I’ve been going to Skinetics for well over a decade now. The services they offer are amazing, and they’ve always got my best interest in mind. I’ve been seeing Leah specifically for the past 5 years and I look forward to my visits with her. She’s professional, friendly and always a pleasure to be around. Great staff all the way around! Thanks for taking such great care of me over the years ladies!”
“The girls at Skinetics are awesome. I have been a patient since Dec. 2011. I had terrible melasma, sun damage and dry complexion. Leah took a safe but aggressive route with great results that I now feel much better about my skin I continue to refer family members and I look forward to my regular treatments!”

“I highly recommend working with Kara, primarily because she has my face looking its freshest in decades. She’s not only personable and caring, she’s an expert in this field and readily available to answer questions. She’s worth every dime.”
