hela® medical testimonials


"Helpful, knowledgable staff, an ideal destination for any spa service."



"The only treatment I've ever done after which my spouse actually commented on my improved appearance. Just give me that skin! 'Referring to hela® Esthetician'. Your forehead glows as though you've eaten nothing but kale when in fact your last dozen meals have been carry-out."

-E. Hazzard, City Paper


"Everything a stressed-out Washingtonian needs. hela® means 'to heal, to make whole' will feel that way after your appointment."

-USA Today


“I have been to spas all over the world and I have never EVER had someone with more skill, more kindness or responsiveness provide this kind of service.”

-Jennifer J.


“I have gone to all the best spas, including in New York City where I lived for ten years. I've gone to famous dermatologists. None of them come close to the facials at hela®.”

-Ellie P.


“This place does not deserve words. Their services speak wonders!”

-Cindy J.


“The waiting area is relaxing and comfortable, the staff attentive and so friendly, and Jennifer was just what I needed today.”

-Melissa T.


“The glycolic peel worked wonders, honestly. I'm going back soon to get another. It definitely improved my skin texture and helped a bit with my dreary winter skin. It was super relaxing just being there with the nice smells, the dim light, and the QUIET.”

-Jessie R.


“hela® is comfortable and very clean, which is usually my number one concern with salons/spas.”

-Jennifer S.


“My skin already looks a ton better. And unlike other places where I leave the spa looking busted, my skin is actually quite glow-y looking.”

-Sarah R.


“This hidden gem definitely allows you to feel like a celebrity for the day with its almost hidden entrance.”

-Emily M.


“Best spa for facials and peels in DC.”

-Laura G.


"As far as facials go, hela® is the best in DC, hands down. I've been to every other major spa; nothing compares. I've seen three different people at hela® for facials over the years, and all have been consistently wonderful and skilled.”

-Laura S.
