My go to spit for laser facials. Very professional and kind staff. I have visited other spammed spas in Santa Monica and this is by far the most welcoming and professional place I have been. Thank you!!

I’ve been there on a few occasions and found the customer service nothing less than excellent—especially Marine Maldonado, who I’ve worked with each time; she’s quick, efficient, and always friendly. The facilities are spotless.

If I feel I need an additional round, they’re my first choice.

...I highly recommend Dr. K for all of your Botox treatments. Not only is he skilled in keeping his work look natural, he is so easy to communicate with and genuinely cares about what you want. For anyone on the fence about Botox, do yourself a favor and book an appointment with Dr. Kothakota ASAP!

When i decided to to get botox for the first time for me and my mom, i chose Self Care LA. Dr. Bharat was amazing. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable and give us the results we needed. it was practically painless with zero bruising. We've both have gotten so many compliments and i love how the change was subtle. We just looked refreshed!! Can't wait to try out some of their other treatments.
