Best Esthetician in Houston – Alex is the best in town! She takes her time and I never feel rushed. She has a beautiful natural setting overlooking a pond. I always feel relaxed when I am in her shop. She uses only the best natural products on her clients and I am aware that this is a lifestyle choice of hers, not just what she does on the job. I always have that refreshed feeling after a session with her. I am on her table once every three months even though she tells me that I do not need it quite so often because it feels great. No enough superlatives for her and her work ! Dr Shawn Jackson DC

Very Happy... – Met Alex through a friend who has been visiting her for about 5 years. I wanted several procedures done and she intoruduced me to Alex. I first had an eyebrow tint-amazing becuase I never had much eyebrows since about 13. Due to my own faults. They were unbeliveable. I had eyebrows with the proper care lasted three weeks. Then, I had a facial done with a light peel. I had some sort 5 clock shadow working. Alex removed a lot of the dead skin cells and my face felt like I had lost ten pounds of oils and dirt clogged in my pores. Then, I made the big leap. I wanted to do something a little more permanent for the brows. I travel a lot. I could not always go back for touch ups when I wnated it done. So, I went for it! I had little to no swelling and little to no pain. Alex was very patient as I fussed over the exact style and color. But, she would not let me make a fool of myself just because. It had to work with me. I had it done today and I have had several complenments already on how great they look. All from complete strangers. That says alot! Going to do a little eyeliner in a couple of months after I am healed from the brows. And yes , more facials!!!!!
Holistic approach to healing the skin – I have tried EVERYTHING for my skin (Accutane, mutiple antibiotics, Proactive, Avon, Beauty Control, Mary Kay, Aloette...the list goes on and on), and when my dermatologist basically told me that trying Accutane again was my only option since the antibiotics had ceased to work, I went hunting for something more holistic/natural. Thankfully, I found Alex! Not only is she amazing as a person, she really takes pride in her work and really WANTS to see your skin improve. Last night was my 1st facial with her, and although I was a little redish when I left, she assured me that it would be well worth it. I woke up this morning to a new face!! I can't wait to see what she can do for me as time goes on. I dare you to give her a try; you won't be disappointed.
Absolutely AMAZING!! – This was my first ever facial, so Alex had 29 years of untouched skin to work with, she had her work cut out, not only was my face sun-burned from the weekend, but it started to break out, that's the best time to see Alex by the way. Alex took her time and educated me along the way. I had one of her custom masks - algae, foot massage, brows waxed, brows & lashes tinted... everyone should try it, makes you look at least 5 years younger and refreshed. Once I arrived home, the redness of the sun-burn was almost completely gone and never peeled as I usually do with a burn. It's been almost 3 weeks later and my face still looks and feels amazing, soft and clear! I love that she uses almost 100% natural, organic products. Can't wait to see Alex this month for my next facial. Ask her about her Skintopia 101 Club -- awesome! If you have oily/acne prone skin Alex is the answer to your questions and solution to your problems, she's great and so very easy to talk to! Thanks Alex for giving me my youthful skin back!!
Beautiful and Healthy Skin – I loved Alex's fun personailty and easying going attitude. She works hard to make your skin super healthy and my face felt so fresh and light after her treatment. The relaxation, advice, conversation, skill/experience and products at Skintopia are grade A excellent... thanks Alex again!!! PS beautiful veiw of the serene fountain and wooded area around the location...wow
wow! thanks alex! – It has been quite a while since my last facial,so Alex had her work cut out for her. Alex took her time with the facial, massaged my hands and feet, and waxed my eyebrows the way I like them. She tinted my eyebrows and lashes..... wow what a change. A subtle but awesome touch. Alex used algae based products that felt wonderful and hydrated my skin. Thank you Alex for being so kind and informative on my sensitve skin. Skintopia is a warm, inviting and friendly place, I look forward to next time.
The Amazing Alex – First I would like to say that this Spa is conveniently located to my house and that's a big plus in my book!! (I'm an inner looper, but it's also close to major freeways and easy to get to.) I have been going to Skintopia for the past several months and have seen what the "magician" Alex has done to transform my skin into a radiant glow. My first session was educational and fun!! Once people commented on how my skin looked I was hooked. Alex takes her time with you, which I love...and she explains what products she will be using on you and what benefits you receive from it. The best part is that it's holistic and all natural. She uses a lot of Source Vital products but has a variety of others. There are several services she offers, such as waxing, lash extensions, permanent make-up and hair removal, just to name a few. Alex is the bomb!! She also has flexible hours, so don't be afraid to ask her if you can come in the evening after work or a Sunday afternoon.
Once you discover this spa- you'll be a customer forever! – I am so glad to tell you that I have been one of Alex's clients for several years - and I plan on staying a loyal client. Over the 10 years that she has been taking care of my skin, Alex has worked at some of Houston's most prestigious Salons such as ;Tova's, Bella Renova, Urban Retreat and Sensia. Clearly these large spas are a lot less personable and often push you into spending a lot more money!
I have followed Alex because she really loves what she does and it shows. Now that Alex has her own spa- she can take the time to work with the clients individually where there is no pressure.
I often give gift certificates from Skintopia to friends and family for weddings, birthdays, and even pregnancy
pampering. I know that they enjoy the experience at the most relaxing spa I have ever been to- and I've been to a lot of spas aound the country. This is truly a unique place. You have to check it out!
Oh YEAH- one more thing-
Alex can make evening or night time appointments- She lives right by her spa- just north of the Heights. She will meet you for a brow wax or facial when it is convenient for YOU!
Best Esthetician in the Houston area! – I don't know what I would do without Skintopia. Alex (the owner) is the best esthetician I've ever met. You can tell when you look at her own skin. She has great products and is constantly going to seminars to learn about the latest and best skin care products that are available and harmless (no chemicals) to your skin. Before I met Alex, my eyebrows were asymmetrical and thin, until she came in and fixed them so that they looked fuller and healthier. She also gives the best brazillians. They are so quick and painless. Her wax keeps your skin smooth for days/weeks. Her spa is beautiful and peaceful. Alex is extremely flexible and perfect at her job. I would drive all the way from Sugar Land just to get "groomed" because to me, she's just that good.
One product I really like is called "DOTS". The purpose of this product is to destroy your hair follicles so your hair will grow back thinner and thinner is those problem areas where hair should not be growing. I've been using this product for months and it really works!
