Kylie T.Yesterday I had my first visit and received one BioTrim Instant Weight Loss Treatment. Let me just say- This place was simply amazing. Location is great, very nice office and I instantly felt relaxed and comfortable. I am 5'3 and 110 lbs and I work out every day as well as maintaining a low calorie and sugar diet. So I didn't set my hopes up too high due to the fact that I had little to lose. My target areas for this treatment were my thighs. The treatment itself is quick and easy- calming even! Toward the end of the 30 minutes I felt the "heat sensation" she described but it was definitely not painful. Then I stood on this machine to help with circulation for 10 minutes (again quick and easy.) I was measured before and after and ended up shedding a bit more than a half of an inch on each leg! I was happily surprised!! Who doesn't want to take a 30 minute rest and lose some body fat? I also received a facial cleanser and moisturizer. It's only my second time using them however, my skin feels hydrated and clean like never before. I have sensitive skin and thus far have had zero irritations. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking to better themselves. Fantastic results and delightful customer service. :)
With that said, what I did take advantage of was the VIP membership. Beautify Spa by International Skin Caref really does offer a great package for discounted facials and treatments, but the "menu" is fairly detailed and complicated when they tell you about it. Currently, I am having red LED treatments, and my research really does tell me this is effective and I am letting the staff at ISCI guide me regarding what is best for my skin care. It isn't always easy in the middle of your work day to take off your makeup and indulge in an hour of sanity, but I think I can get used to it!
On the weekends, I have been going without makeup and notice my tone and color is better. Even my husband looked at me and paused long enough to say "Your skin looks good."
What a wonderfully relaxing spa at a great price. I had a fabulous facial, that included Microderm and LED light treatment, for the price I would have paid for Microderm alone at other places. Tisha Rose is outstanding. Not only did my skin feel great, but her massage will put you to sleep.
I bought an Amazon Deal for the RF/CSR; described as "Photoshop for the Face". I go in cynical, but figured what the heck. Saturday afternoon, I pull up to this white Soviet-style block building in Old Scottsdale and my heart sinks. Ugh. I can already tell what this experience is going to be like. Except I walk thru a set of iron gates and down a short arched hall and find myself whisked far from the gritty urban landscape and into the garden of the Kasbah---a beautiful tiled courtyard with comfy seating and a playful fountains and leafy greenery that trembled in the breeze. Wow---this is cool. My Esthetician got me settled in, told me in detail about the procedure & expected results & then checked to make sure I had no questions. And so we began, I only winced was when she worked on the spot where your cheek curves into your nose. On a scale of 1-10, discomfort was at worst a 3.5, and more like a 2. One of my complaints about my "older" face is the bags under my eyes. I swear, SWA wants to charge me excess baggage fees for those puppies. Folks, I kid you not---I got up Sunday morning, looked in the mirror, and those sad little pillows that resided under my eyes had been reduced about 80%. I am not joking. I almost fell off my chair. Now, that's the only "turbo" difference I noticed that fast and radically, but over the past 10 days, I have also noticed that my skin grain seems finer. The reduction in the baggy eyes has remained. not for a single moment do I feel like I got lesser service at ISCI because I came in on a coupon. I was there almost 2 hours and felt pampered and valued. Great experience.
I purchased a Groupon for a facial at The International Skin Care Institute and, to be honest, I didn't have high expectations considering what a great deal it was. But I was more than pleasantly surprised; Mikki did an amazing job and put so much care and attention into her work. My skin looked noticeably better, to a point where I signed up for their VIP membership when I had no intention of initially doing so. I'm looking forward to many more great facials!
I tried ISCI with a wonderful Groupon offer that I thought was too good to be true, but it was exactly what was offered! I love my CSR treatment results and I still have 2 more procedures That came with my Groupon offer! Wow. The peacefulness that I felt while I was getting this process was wonderful, I felt myself cat napping several times during the process. No pain during the process! The technician was great and friendly. I would recommend ISCI to anyone looking to receive great and affordable skin care, facials, treatments to keep you looking vibrant! BTW- They offer an incredible VIP program!
I had a facial with Tisha on Tuesday, it was wonderful. Very relaxing and she explained everything. The staff was also great. Definitely would recommend this place to others.

Had my first appointment 4/2/14 with Mikki. She's great, the staff is friendly, NOT pushy at all. I had a coupon for a CSR and bought a VIP package at the end of my appointment !! What a nice spa atmosphere with professional service. Can't wait for the RF CSR treatment next week!! They are so good at putting you at ease and taking special care of the client. I will continue to "be spoiled" by them from here on out. : D
I just had an RF CSR with Mikki, and my skin looks gorgeous...It is absolutely flawless! It is called "Photoshop for the Face," and no kidding - it really is. I will be 51 next week, and my skin hasn't looked this good since I was in my late 20's or early 30's. What I also love is that there is literally no downtime. You can wear makeup after 24 hours of having it done, and I had very little redness. It is virtually painless - I knew it was being done, but I didn't feel anything. If I did feel something while it was done, it was very mild and it didn't hurt at all. I am hooked on this and I plan to do this forever!!
Mikki is just the best. She does an awesome job, and she's a really terrific person, too.
If you want to make improvements to your skin quality, tone, etc, get this done. You will be amazed!!!!
I live near Old Town so when I saw t he Groupon I thought I would give it a try. I wasn't expecting much, but found the staff and the treatment to be one of the best I have had in town. The loction is perfect for parking and is comfortable and relaxed. Joanna did the facial and was friendly but let me relax. Having the LED is nice, any add on that can tighten my skin I will take! The Microdermabrasion was nice, not too strong but comfortable and made my skin very smooth and clean. Yes, they talk to you about the VIP package... but it is a Groupon and you are getting a great deal for what the Groupon cost. They were not pushy. The VIP membership is a great deal for someone like me that likes to get a service once or twice a month.
I recently had treatment at the International Skin Care Institute for the first time and was very happy with everything including the ambience of the setting. Everything was first class. A real treat in the heart of Scottsdale. I am now a client’
I have been going to ISCI for my skincare needs for a couple of years now. I get CSR treatments for my face and neck quarterly, and also do weekly LED treatments. I am 50 and most people think I am around 35!! I have seen amazing results!! The VIP program is a great deal, and offers discounts on many of their wonderful products and services. John and his staff are all very friendly and professional, and ISCI is a beautiful, relaxing little oasis in downtown Scottsdale. Do yourself a favor and visit ISCI for a facial or one of their many wonderful services - you will be glad you did! They are the BEST.
I have received excellent care for CSR Treatment, LED lights, and facial by Tisha Rose. My appointments have been on time, Tisha explains the process, facilitates relaxation and prepared a program for my skin type. I look forward to my treatments and Tisha's personal care. My skin is looking much better. Thanks. Bonnie M.!
I originally went to the International Skin Care Institute because I purchased a Groupon package for a collagen & LED treatment. I love the facility and people are GREAT and really cater to you. My esthetician was Tish and she was wonderful. She took her time as she educated me on my skin and the processes. I loved it so much I ended up buying their VIP program, have sent my husband for a facial and will be going back in a few weeks for another treatment. I am not a big fan of social media but after having such a wonderful experience I felt it was worth joining Yelp to share my positive experience.
I received my first facial with Tisha and it was absolutely wonderful!! She suggested a particular facial for my skin type and explained everything she was doing along the way. It was so relaxing and really helped the appearance of my skin. It gave me a much needed refresh! Can’t wait for my next one!!
I am a skeptic when it comes to "did I get results on my CSR?" - I don't know yet, it's too soon to tell! I do know my skin feels better and the ladies were fabulous to work with, the spa is inviting, comfortable and stylish with a touch of beautiful items for sale with NO PRESSURE from anyone.
I would say definitely give this place a try. I just might see you there :-)
I joined the ISC's VIP program so I could continue to get great facials from Annette. She is highly trained and cares about your skin and what you are looking to achieve. I think the skin care options at ISC are great. I'm a fan.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is very relaxing. I have had the LED Rejuvenation treatments and the Collagen Skin Rejuvenation treatment and so far very happy! Would recommend!!
I had a great experience at this place I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place for a facial and a relaxing environment
I bought a Groupon for a facial package including Microdermabrasion, chemical peel, and an LED treatment. I called and left a message, and they called me back answering all my questions. They sent me 3 appointment reminders in the week before my appointment, and they were very welcoming. The lady who did my facial was very good and asked about my life and we chatted and then she let me relax as she proceeded with the facial; she also included a nice neck and arm massage.
I have been going to ISCI for several months now. I always see Joanna. She is fabulous. She is so helpful in recommending products and treatments and never pushy. The staff is great, but Joanna is the reason I keep going back.
It's nice to know true professionals do still exist. Joanna performed CSR treatment and did so with precision and confidence. She took time to educate as well as comfort. Joanna is an asset to the field.
I am a fan of this place. I had a Groupon for a facial with Microdermabrasion. I liked it so much that I became a member. It was so relaxing. My aesthetician was really great. I am looking forward to getting more treatments regularly.
My 2nd visit was yesterday love, love, love Annette Greiman. Her knowledge blew me away! I love the quiet little place not to over the top.
I had a fabulous Facial and a LED treatment. I am so thrilled with my visits I joined the VIP club booked an extra appointment on Tuesday with Michele also booked my June and July appointments and am bringing my friend with me as a surprise in July for her birthday. My skin looks and feels great and I am listening to them as to what I should be doing with my skin. I was born and raised here have been to every spa and every skin place this 50 year old Native of AZ just found her new place pamper her skin.
Had my first facial and LED treatment today. Fabulous experience and service. Best facial at the BEST price. Can't be beat. I will return for more treatments. Thanks ISCI for the affordable spa treatments.
The customer service was excellent and the facial was great. Honored my appointment time. Would definitely come back
I went for my second facial with Mikki yesterday and had the same wonderful experience as my first visit. Mikki is very personable and I appreciate her input on my skin care. My skin feels smooth and hydrated. The spa has a relaxing atmosphere and the service is excellent. I have been using several of the Beautify products for about one month and so far I am very pleased.
At the age of 66 I have had many facials, but I have never experienced a more customized and thorough one than what Mikki Drury gave me at The International Skin Care Institute in Scottsdale. The facility is not fancy, but it is welcoming and comfortable and very clean; all factors that I look for. I highly recommend them!
If you're looking for an amazing facial, look no further! The team at ISC Institute is committed to providing exemplary service by creating a truly exceptional experience. Ask about their VIP Program that provides amazing discounts on facials and other services.
I received the best review possible from my oldest daughter & hardest critic last month! After 2 secretly done CRS treatments, she asked me what I have had done to my face 'surgically'? She told me I look amazing!! I was told my cheekbones look higher! I am now a VIP member & look forward to the relaxing procedures that are done to my face. I am almost 61, though no one believes me. It's definitely worth joining the VIP program.
I have had facials or LED treatments 6 or so times now at ISC, and highly recommend them! The environment created at the ISC's facility is aesthetic and calming . . . and the staff is quite friendly and accommodating. My facial this past week with Annette, which included Microdermabrasion, was wonderfully soothing and I left with baby-soft, clean-clean-clean skin. These two aestheticians have had their own styles and routines, but I have enjoyed them both. I have a VIP membership and feel that the "perks" provided are well worth it.
First trip to international skin care for a facial and led rejuvenation. My Esthetician was awesome, explained everything she was doing and why. Will be going back again soon. My skin hasn't felt this good in years. I will be referring my friends, the treatment was a treat
I love this place. ISC is the best. My skin is look much better after just one treatment. I will come back here soon.
I really felt welcomed from the moment I walked in. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and the service was outstanding! My face literally felt firmer immediately which really surprised me. Best of all, it's all organic so you can feel good about the products being used on your skin which is really important to me. I loved it so much I referred my cousin who is coming with me next time!
I had a wonderful experience at the International Skin Care Institute. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The facility is very cute and cozy. If you buy the VIP the pricing is really affordable.
Been going to the International Skin Care Institute for over a year now, and I absolutely love it! The staff is beyond helpful and knowledgeable, and really utilize every resource to produce great results for your skin! The facials are so relaxing and I would highly recommend Joanna. If you sign up for the VIP program, you receive amazing discounts on products and treatments. Thanks for the great service and even better results!
Two friends & I decided to treat ourselves to a facial that we found through Groupon. We were able to schedule this for Valentine's Day, a plus! To allow us to all get in at the same time, the spa brought in a 3rd aesthetician early! Very helpful & accommodating. The facial with Microdermabrasion & LED rejuvenation was wonderful. Relaxing and I thought we all looked pretty good after! Mikki was my aesthetician and she had a very gentle touch. The staff was welcoming and friendly. After reading a few reviews I was concerned about a hard sell for future treatments, but this did not happen at all. I realize the purpose of a Groupon is to drive business and sales. I expect to be given an overview of the product line and to be encouraged to visit again. It would be a poor business practice to not do that.
I would recommend this spa to friends & family without hesitation. I would love to return!
Great experience! Enjoyed a wonderful facial my first visit and have seen results with LED treatments. Professional and so relaxing.... a gift to myself! Cindy Smith
If you love facials, this is the place for you! The estheticians are excellent, especially Joanna and Annette. They offer a club which makes the facials very affordable. This is excellent quality for a more than fair price. Makes monthly facials possible :)
I had an AMAZING facial and LED treatment with Mikki! The service was great and overall it was a wonderful experience! The VIP program they offer is also a nice bonus if you enjoy getting pampered like I do! I have already made two more appointments and referred a few friends!
I originally came to the International Skin Care Institute with a LivingSocial deal for an hour facial, microderm, and LED treatment. My facial was with Annette and she was great, before the facial started she asked me about my skin care needs and then told me about the steps she was going to take to address my concerns. The facial itself was very relaxing and I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. I ended up signing up for the VIP membership program which is a fabulous deal, I received bonus LED treatments and a face product and will receive discounted treatments throughout the year, a huge money saver and then were even able to break the fee up into payments to make it easier on my budget. Overall this place offers great treatments for an affordable price.
Really enjoyed my facial and LED light therapy at the International Skin Care Institute. My skin felt awesome! The staff is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I signed up for the VIP program which has a lot of incentives. I can't wait to go for my next facial.
What a great experience! My Esthetician gave me my facial my skin looked and felt great! I was so pleased with everything I signed up for the VIP membership what a fantastic deal!! Now I can have a facial anytime I want!!
I had a micro + facial with Joanna during Spa Week, as well. When I walked in, the place was very serene and relaxing. The room that I was assigned was also very relaxing. I've had a couple of micro's and facials and this place seemed the nicest of all I've been to. My skin was so clean and healthy-looking afterwards. Joanna did a great job! I actually signed-up for the VIP program! I will definitely be going back.
THIS place is amazing. I have been to a million places and have been getting lasers/facials etc for years now to preserve my aging skin. By far, out of all the places I have been -- this surpasses them all. I got a Groupon for a CSR and have had a few in the past. However, this one TOPPED them all by far. The care, concern, the explanations, the education I received were beyond the best. The time they took with me was well over 2 hrs! They really cared and exceeded every expectation. I was so impressed, I became a VIP member that day! They also offer the best deals and make what you want affordable... THE results: stunning! I hope to keep my skin tight, strong and soft by a few more CSR treatments and relax with a few facials this year! THANK YOU!!!!!
My sister surprised me with a facial from ISCI when I was visiting AZ for Thanksgiving. Mikki was wonderful and very attentative. I am 83 years old and highly recommend ISCI to anyone. I saw results after one Microderm. I also recommend the Foot and Hand treatments for those that cannot use the LED light due to medical conditions. ISCI was just great.
I have been to the International Skin Care Institute three times and have enjoyed each visit. Twice I have had facials and have just started the LED treatments. Immediately after the treatment I felt my skin tightening. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The space itself is comfortable and welcoming.
Loved the service and the services! Joanna was excellent! The LED treatments are super cool. I left feeling relaxed, glowing, and very pleased!!
I loved my facial at ISC Institute. I've received facials at many other places and this was by far the best one I have ever received. Microdermabrasion was included in my facial with I am a huge fan of now....after my facial my skin looked and felt more fabulous than it has in a while! I can't wait to go back again!
I purchased the collagen rejuvenating package through Groupon. I had the treatment done about 6 weeks ago and my skin does feel smoother and firmer. I went ahead and joined their VIP program for the discounts on products and services. The place is friendly and very relaxing. I went in for a facial and microderm and my skin felt great afterward.
My friend and I had a Collagen Skin Rejuvenation (CSR) a month ago. We love the results and bought a package of 3 more CSR and LED treatments each. My esthetician was a very experienced person & did a great job for my face.
Though not a high maintenance type, I decided to try this spa via a Groupon-type promotion. I probably would not have found it otherwise, as it is tucked away behind Sees Candy on Scottsdale Rd in Old Town Scottsdale. I immediately fell in love with the place! It is comfortable, but not pretentious. The staff is wonderful--both Joanna and Mikki are wonderful aestheticians. I work hard for a living and believe I deserve the once-a-month luxury of a good facial and any other services I want to take advantage of. I love the attentive but not "over the top" staff at ISCI. It is somewhere where I can go to get pampered--just a little--and feel very comfortable. After 3 visits, I decided to purchase an annual membership. I'm worth it! I also love the convenience of being able to schedule and change appointments online.
I LOVE coming here to get facials. I found this place through Groupon about a year ago and have been coming back to see Annette ever since. As a member you get discounts on your facials as well as an appreciation birthday facial (which I just used last week). Definitely a place to check out if you want a professional and relaxing facial.
I have been here twice so far and really like it. I had a facial and Microdermabrasion and LED treatments both times. Annette is fantastic and adjusts my facial to my desires every time. Love it!
Everyone at the ISCI is courtesy and very knowledgeable. VIP Membership is wonderful program that can save you money on the products and services. Would definitely recommend this spa.
I was not looking forward to using my Groupon after reading a bad Review... But now I know better and will take all reviews with a grain of salt. Their Old Town Scottsdale location was beautiful, the products were organic and smelled/felt delicious, and it was hands down, by far the best facial I have ever received!!! Bought VIP card with all the perks and already scheduled another visit with my best friend so she can try!!! Scheduling website no bueno, but the experience was wonderful :)
Update - 9/20/2012 I purchased a Groupon in 2011 amongst many other facial Groupon’s & loved my facial at ISCI so much that I bought the VIP and have been coming ever since. I LOVE Joanna, she not only gives me a magical facial, but does the best Reiki I have ever had. When my best friend came in town to visit, I purchased a facial for her and she was also in awe of her experience. I think the staff is kind and welcoming; the ambiance is relaxing with tea, snacks, and tons of testers for you to play with their ORGANIC products. They provide free services and quality products for referrals and the price for what you get is well beyond worth it. My skin has improved tremendously- Melasma and dullness were my issues, and I always look forward to my ME time...my relaxing facial with Joanna! 10 out of 10!
Five days ago, I had my first Collagen Skin Rejuvenation (CSR) treatment and I already see a marked difference in the tightening of my skin. The entire staff is accommodating, warm, and very knowledgeable. I was particularly pleased with the way my technician, Annette, listened to "My" concerns and planned accordingly. I also love the fact that ISCI makes skin care affordable! The VIP membership is a must! You made my drive from the west valley worthwhile! Thank you, ISCI.
I love, love, LOVE this place. Joanna is wonderful. I have started going on a regular basis and now will have my daughter going with me. It is quite a drive for me but so worth it.
I had a CSR treatment by Mikki and couldn't be happier. From the moment I called and talked to John to set my appointment to walking in the door everyone was very nice. Mikki explained the procedure thoroughly and made the experience very relaxing.
Through Groupon, I found ISCI. I had a great facial with organic products. My skin felt amazing and it was quiet and relaxing. I bought the VIP membership because it was a great deal and I do want to go back often. I am also doing the LED treatments and that seems to be working on erasing fine lines and wrinkles. I really like the peaceful atmosphere and organic products.
The International Skin Care Institute rocks!!! I had a facial with ISCI. It was a pleasant, relaxing and a truly great and rewarding experience. If you are looking for a clean and tranquil spa-like atmosphere - this is the place! Of all the money and time that I have spent over the years, never have I had such a truly-great result. Almost immediately after finishing my facial, I could already see and feel results. My skin was soft, renewed and had a natural-radiant glow. My Esthetician was superb and I already have facials scheduled for the next couple months...counting the days wait 'til I return again
I had my first Collagen Rejuvenation treatment today. I can hardly wait to see the final results. The facility was very nice and everyone was so friendly. I bought the VIP package and have already scheduled my first facial and LED treatment.
I travel from the west valley for the great services and staff at ISCI. Joanna gave me a fab facial with Microdermabrasion. Joining their VIP membership is a no brainer. Seeing great results after 2 visits.
Mikki Drury gave me a fabulous facial and I've had many over the years. The products they have also work wonders and go a long way. The atmosphere is GREAT and I recommend you arrive early and enjoy the relaxing loge before your appointment!
Can't go wrong if you are looking for a smaller more personal skin care facility. I was introduced to ISC via Groupon and became a member. The perks of membership are great and the facial was truly one of the best ever. I LOVE that the products are all organic and natural...Annette is my aesthetician and she is terrific!
Found this place through Groupon and although it is in Old Town Scottsdale, it's off the beaten path so may never have discovered it otherwise. I really didn't know what to expect, but once inside the doors I found it to be really peaceful and relaxing. The facial rooms are detached from the main building so it's like going to a private casita for your facial. I had Annette for my aesthetician and found her to be knowledgeable and friendly. You leave with healthy feeling skin and a relaxed psyche. The membership plan makes it affordable so I'm sure I will return whenever I feel like tuning up my skin.
I, too, bought a Groupon facial and as I usually am, was a bit skeptical as to what I was getting myself into. I'll admit, I was even a bit more skeptical when I saw the exterior of the building .... not exactly sure what I was expecting, but I obviously wasn't impressed .... AT FIRST! After entering the cool courtyard, I felt transformed to a European villa and after being welcomed by the friendly, professional staff, felt instantly at ease in my surroundings. My esthetician and although my Groupon was for a facial and Microdermabrasion, she recommended against the microderm, suggesting a dermaplane instead and explained why. I felt she truly had my best interest in mind. Her facial was excellent and professional and for the first time ever, I never had a "break out" afterward and my face felt SO soft and clean! Check it out. I think you'll like it!
ISC is an intimate salon, which I prefer, with a very friendly and warm staff. I've had two CSR treatments, a few LED and a facial. As a result, redness and skin tone are improved. I signed up for their membership and plan on visiting for another CSR followed by regular facials.
Had a CSR treatment here and have really noticed a difference in my skin for the first time ever. Will definitely have more treatments.
I had a facial with Joanna yesterday. It was amazing and I became a member. It was a Groupon; I probably would have never discovered this location otherwise. Update - 8/17/2012 I became a member of International Skin Care Institute after using my Groupon. I had a wonderful facial and overall experience and returned yesterday for a LED. I am very satisfied and look forward to many more visits.
I also used a Groupon for my service. Before starting the facial I filled out documents, as you should do before a facial. One of the questions asks what do you like addressed in the facial. All that I mentioned was addressed with honors. I was very pleased. I own a micro dermaplaning machine, but it's always nicer to have someone else do it for you. Once again, she did a much better job than I could ever do and better than most other places I've been. I also had a LED light treatment which the option of addressing up to 3 skin conditions was offered. There's a beverage counter with snacks to make sure you are hydrated. There are also a few quiet areas that you can sit back and relax by yourself or with a friend.
Everyone was friendly and wanted to make sure I was happy. This is one Groupon purchase that I will make another visit. Very Satisfied
With the Groupon coupon thing it seems as though most places are of the "get 'em in get 'em out" attitude. It was refreshing that the staff of the International Skin Care Institute were personable, informative, knowledgeable and of the mindset to create a spa experience for customer. A tad bit sales driven for my taste, I do want to know the products, but I don't want to feel pressured into buying them. However, I think my arithmetician was just passionate about helping people get great skin and obviously liked working there. Great facial I would recommend to others. Can't wait to see what other services they have coming in the future.
I purchased a Groupon for a collagen skin treatment; as soon as you enter it's a little oasis in old town. The front desk people were very welcoming at check-in & check-out. I had a fantastic technician, she was really knowledgeable. I enjoyed my time there. I had the treatment 2 days ago & already feeling & seeing results. The membership is such a fantastic deal, I signed up immediately & can't wait to get other services.
I went in for a facial. I had not had one in forever. It was wonderful and followed up with an LED light treatment. I immediately signed up for a VIP membership. I have already seen benefits from the LEDs.
Went there the other day and had a facial by Annette and an LED treatment. Both treatments were awesome. The place has a very comfortable relaxing atmosphere. I cannot wait to return for my next LED treatment. Update - 7/26/2012 Went there today for a second time--I purchased the VIP package that included 2 free LED treatments. I am definitely sold on LED. My skin is looking better and better every day.
My first time at ISC and I have to say it was absolutely wonderful! I found ISC through Living Social and received first class service, where many companies that offer deals treat you differently because you are using a "coupon", this is NOT the case at ISC, they are professional from start to finish!! First it started with a warm & personal greeting from the staff (Ginny & Kelly). Then Joanna Patton promptly greeted me for my 60 min. facial with microderm. Afterwards, she spent time with me explaining the different products she used. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in skin care and the products they use. My skin glowed! Best facial ever!! Also, their organic skin care in amazing!! One last thing...their VIP program makes keeping your skin healthy affordable in Scottsdale!! I'm in love with ISC!
My husband surprised me with a Groupon to this location. I had the most wonderful 2 hours. The value was incredible and the results were awesome. I had a Microdermabrasion & as a result my makeup goes on so much easier. I will most definitely return.
Love this place! Found it through Groupon had the facial which was amazing and the purchased the VIP package. I love the skin products my skin has never looked better. The staff is so friendly, Mikki has done both the facial and the CSR. Love it.
I found ISCI through Groupon about a year ago and have been going every 5 weeks since that time. Annette is my aesthetician and is great. The natural Beautify products used are wonderful and as a VIP member they are 50% - 75% off!! What could be better?
I got a deal from Living Social and went there to have my first facial. It was great! I felt amazing afterwards and the service was really great. Just went back today for my second LED treatment and I have an appointment scheduled next month for another facial. I signed up for the VIP package which is such a great deal! I love their natural products (Beautify) that do not feel too heavy on my face. I cannot wait for my next facial; it is just so relaxing and leaves you feeling great.
I had the Collagen Skin Rejuvenation done yesterday, as I am 49 and have a few wrinkles and sagging on my face, and a lot of that on my neck. ISCI is a beautiful, small spa and everyone there is so nice. For the treatment, I was put in a room with soft music and a padded table like for facials. Mikki, the aesthetician, took off my makeup and put numbing gel on my face and neck, and used an instrument to prick my skin for the CSR. I mostly didn't feel anything, but areas that I did feel were a level 3 out of 10 (most) for pain. I was scared before the treatment, but Mikki totally put me at ease. Afterwards, it looked and felt like a bad sunburn. Today, my skin is still red (but less than yesterday!) and no swelling or bruising!!! I bought the VIP membership and 5 more CSRs at a great rate. I intend to do this more times, and keep up with it, to push out "needing" a facelift for many years, and to also take the best care of my skin as I can. Thanks, ISCI!!
I signed up for a facial with ISC Institute because of a Groupon deal and the facial included a Microdermabrasion which I never had. Joanna did both the facial and Microdermabrasion. I have to say it was the best facial I ever had. My face looked so good afterward I even went shopping without putting on foundation, which I never do. Joanna was very professional and friendly. I did sign up for their VIP program because I will definitely get more facials.
I purchased a Groupon and came to The International Skin Care Institute for the first time for a Microdermabrasion. My esthetician was Annette and she was wonderful, explained the process, and educated me on my skin. I enjoyed the treatment and purchased the VIP package which is a worthwhile deal if you get facials regularly. I have since tried their LED skin rejuvenation. Everyone has been very friendly, I've been pleased with the services, and will be coming back for further treatments to finally give my skin the TLC it deserves. Though I have had some trouble getting in touch with ISCI by phone, don't let it deter you...I recommend their skin treatments and being able to book appointments online is very convenient!
I purchased a Groupon and scheduled my appointment online which I found to be really convenient. When I went in, the staff was really friendly. I received the Microdermabrasion facial. She was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I ended up buying the membership and have been back several times. Kelly at the front desk is so sweet and is also able to provide a lot of information on the services. I have been very pleased with the results!
I bought a facial during spa week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In fact, I joined the VIP program and have already enjoyed two LED treatments. The staff is very helpful and friendly. What a great experience! I'll enjoy my membership over the year and my improved skin.
Great facial and Microdermabrasion! Skin felt fabulous after and VIP membership is good deal if you get regular facials!
I had a wonderful experience at International Skin Care Institute. My facial was amazing, very relaxing but invigorating at the same time. My face feels and looks great. I love that they use products with all natural ingredients. The staff is professional and courteous. I enrolled in the VIP program. It is a great deal if you receive facials regularly with lots of extra perks.
I've had facials in many places over the years, and have always dreamed of a place that would have great service, products AND effective, skilled technicians that care about what they do. This place is IT!! I'm on about my 4th facial and am still pleased and impressed with my results. Their in house product line (Beautify) is really good! I have friends in the 'beauty care' business and have tried a lot of lines and services. ISCI is definitely worth your time and money. Join the VIP club and save big.
ISIC is a wonderful place to relax and let one of their professional highly trained estheticians and staff members take care of you with an amazing facial, LED treatment or another specialized treatment. I would highly recommend ISIC if you are looking for a calming atmosphere and amazing treatment
I recently purchased a Groupon for a facial and Microdermabrasion which I have never had done and thought this was a great way to try it out. I was scheduled with Joanna and she was wonderful as was the service. I absolutely loved the facial and Microdermabrasion. It left my face so soft and I could see the soft lines had dimensioned the very first time. My pores were much smaller and my face felt and looked great.
I then went in for my first LED treatment and I loved that just as much. Today my face is glowing, the skin tone is so even, my pores again look smaller so much that I do not think I will wear any makeup today. While we there we had the chance to meet the owner who was very nice easy to talk to and was very informative.
I have been to other upscale salons and left feeling like a number... very different here, you made to feel like you are their only client. They have very affordable specials and plans which makes it even better. I highly recommend The International Skin Care Institute.
I bought/used a $59 Groupon for my first visit & loved the experience. I've done several facials over the years, but the micro-dermabrasion did exactly what I wanted in terms of making my pores smaller. I felt so great afterwards that I signed up for their $79/year special where you get as many facials as you want all year for $59. As far as I'm concerned, this place ranks just as high as the Camelback Inn, where the facials are much more expensive. Small place, great folks & great facials. Go for it!
I bought a Groupon for $59 for a facial and Microdermabrasion for both me and my beaux. I was very pleased. It was well worth $59. The aesthetician, Joann, was fab! I rank it as the best overall facial I've ever had and I've had a few dozen. They provided many incentives and gifts and their VIP program guarantees as many facials (choose from 10 including Microdermabrasion) as you would like the whole year through for a $179 fee, (but they gave me $100 off on my 1st visit) It's a steal because they give you a free birthday facial and $100 gift certificate. Unlike Noa U., (who wrote a bad review) I did meet the owner, John. If he uses the products, they're working! He did look good for 49 years of age.
I purchased a Groupon for the facial and microderm. Mikki was the facialist and was very friendly and knowledgeable. She didn't talk through the whole facial, which I love. I like to just relax and not have to make a lot of conversation. I'm not sure about the other Yelp review, but I received a microderm. It was the same quality microderm that I've received in many other spas. The facial was very relaxing and she took her time - I think I was there for at least an hour. I will definitely go back.
I was not looking forward to using my Groupon after reading the above review... But now I know better and will take all reviews with a grain of salt. Their Old Town Scottsdale location was beautiful, the products were organic and smelled/felt delicious, and it was hands down, by far the best facial I have ever received!!! Bought VIP card with all the perks and already scheduled another visit with my best friend so she can try!!! Scheduling website no bueno, but the experience was wonderful :)
My first visit to The International Skin Care Institute was because of a Groupon...but after the FANTASTIC facial I received that day...I signed up for their "membership" and am looking forward to my next visit...and my next...and my next...etc....!!!!!
I felt totally pampered throughout the entire visit and my skin was so HAPPY when I left! I am 61 years young (which is the new 40) and fully intend to stay that way with their help!!!!!
Treat yourself....you deserve it!!!!
I am reviewing the facial with Microdermabrasion I purchased off of Groupon for $59. This was the first time I've ever received a facial or Microdermabrasion. I have nothing to compare it to, but I believe that what I received was amazing. I've bought similar things for girlfriends in the past and the process they explained was identical to what I got here. Therefore, I assume I got the real thing :)
I scheduled my appointment with Mikki. She was a very nice lady and made me feel very comfortable. She arrived a few minutes early to drop off some pre-appointment paperwork for me to fill out. She was very friendly and outgoing, making me laugh many times. I was completely happy with the service she provided and would schedule another appointment with her if I have the opportunity to go back.
The interior is very nicely decorated and clean. I did not find the music to be too quiet or too loud. It was just right.
I was not sure what to expect. Being male, this kind of stuff is new to me but it was something I'd been wanting to do for a while. I'm not sure if the other reviewer (Noa U.) went to the same place that I did, but they offered the diamond tip microdermabrasions and that's what I got. Mikki recommended it to me. I believe I also got the organic one first, but I'm not too sure. I was kind of zoned out as I was very, very relaxed. I think I would have fallen asleep if I was there any longer.
The only downside for me is the distance from my house. This is what kept me from purchasing the VIP package, which is actually very inexpensive and overall a great deal with all of the benefits you gain from it. I do plan on going back sometime in the future when time allows.
My skin felt great afterwards. The staff there is very knowledgeable and able to offer recommendations for various products and techniques to keep your skin looking great. When I said I wasn't interested in the VIP package they didn't hound me. The guy at the car wash who tries to replace the non-existent chips in my windshield is 10 times more aggressive of a salesperson than the ones that work here.
Again, I've never had a facial or Microdermabrasion before, or any kind of spa treatment stuff at all actually, but I am beyond happy with what I got for the price I paid.
I bought the Groupon for the facial and Microdermabrasion. The service was wonderful and I believe I received great value for the cost. My therapist was very professional, and I left the Institute feeling very well treated. Unlike the prior review on this site, I was given a great facial and the Microdermabrasion treatment left my skin very smooth. I would recommend the Institute.
One of the best facials I have ever received. The atmosphere was relaxing and inviting. I have been getting facials and facial acupuncture for about 10 years, this is one the best ones with the longest lasting results. I love the energized facial and the organic Microdermabrasion. It was not as harsh as some others I have had, with better results. After 3 weeks, my skin is still less oily and tighter. They customize the treatment just for you. I loved it so much I signed up for their VIP plan. I am excited for my next facial and to try the Eye Treatment.
I visited the ISCI today and tried one of the new energized facials that are apparently becoming "all the rave." After noticing how great my skin looked and felt afterwards, I was convinced that these products fell nothing short of what they promise to deliver! This was the first facial I have ever had where my skin didn't break out and feel greasy afterwards. Rather, it felt hydrated but yet very taught. This was definitely a refreshing experience that I would consider revisiting again in the future! I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone wishing to look and feel younger! Thanks ISCI...you're the best!
I received a facial, the other day at ISCI, with the new energized skin care line and was very impressed. I'm always hesitant to try different products because my skin is ultra sensitive and countless products have caused irritations or left it feeling greasy with no positive results. This energized facial was unique, relaxing and it left my skin feeling amazing. The fine lines around my eyes and forehead disappeared and my skin felt tighter and definitely looked more radiant. I would highly recommend this facial and the skin care line. I'm ordering the products to use on a daily basis. My skin is a "firm" believer!!!
This skin care line rocks!! I noticed tighter, firmer, lifted skin. I received so many compliments on how my skin was glowing. I even had a few blemishes before I had the facial and within a few hours everything healed, it truly was incredible!! This is a very unique facial that works!! The product is light and feels amazing...The energy involved is different from anything I've tried before and I have had facials on a regular basis for the last 10 years...
My girlfriend from Tucson was out in Malibu. She meets this woman who could not stop talking about a line of skin care from Switzerland that was all organic and was applied in a very unique method. She said it was the most amazing experience and it had to with the way it was applied.
I don't know if it was the amazing skin care line or the really unique way it was done, but I absolutely agree it was amazing. It was like getting a massage at the same time. We felt so relax that we weren't sure if we would make it to dinner later.
Unfortunately they had to order me what I wanted. I wish I could have taken it with me. That was the only bad thing.
I would still give this 5 stars!! You have to experience this.
I loved this facial! I really did see results after my facial! My skin feels and looks better. I dropped my expensive brand-name line and I am now a disciple of this wonderful organic, energized line. I would recommend this facial and the skin care line.
Living in Arizona, my skin gets so dry. No matter how much product I slather on it, it never quite seems to be enough. I have tried a number of medium-priced lines and even expensive lines; nothing seems to really make a difference. I was first exposed to this energized skin care line from a facial I purchased. The line is light, and felt nice on my skin and I do like the smell. Very refreshing! After getting the facial, my skin felt so hydrated and dewey. I have to say, I felt younger and even got a few compliments that evening. I have been using the line now for just over a week, and I am really seeing results! It's supposed to have zero point energy in it, whatever it has in it, works, and I am very happy!
I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with their energized facial. I thought it might be more skin care hoopla, but I was intrigued enough to try it. I am a believer now!
Whatever this energy is, is really marvelous! My skin has not looked this good in a long time!
I, for one, can say it works!
