Jody A. 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!”
Sasha B. 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.”
Lisa S. Orange, CA
“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!”
Leslie B. Yorba Linda, 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.”
Kathy G. Orange, CA

“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.”

Leslie D. 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!”
Pamela K. 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!”
Mollie L. 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!”
Cindy V. Westminster, CA
“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.”
Michelle K. 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.”
Tara U. Anaheim, CA
“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.”
Tanya O. 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.”
Jody D. 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.”
Maria M. Anaheim, CA
“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!”
Kae M. 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!”
Debbie M. Orange County, CA
“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.”
Deanna W. Inland Empire, CA
