Worst Spa Experience EVER. I’ve been to Olena’s before, for a microdermabrasion facial. First off, scheduling was a nightmare; I could only come in on specific days of the week, but the person who was scheduling me (who turned out to be Olena herself) would NOT listen at all to what I was saying. The facial itself was painful. I don’t have bad skin; I have numerous facialists that I have been to who can testify to that. Olena, however, spent a lot of time telling me how bad my skin was. Her recommendation to me was to cut out “sweet foods, salty foods, spicy foods, don’t eat too many carbs”, etc. In other words, eat a completely bland diet. After the facial, I checked out her many “degrees” and certifications on the wall. Most of them came from mail order schools like Stratford, places that are well known as basically degree mills. And to cap it all off? She left grainy particles all over my skin and in my hair, and I started to break out (for the first time in years!) after this treatment. It took my skin a month and a half to calm down. I highly recommend you DO NOT go to this spa for ANYTHING!
A little slice of heaven. I love, love, love facials, they are so relaxing. I have been to different day spas and none compare. She does all the little extras that all add up to a wonderful experience.
Laser procedure is a face saver..
My skin is very sensitive and prone to rosacea and broken capillaries, I was excited to learn about the new laser procedure that Olena is offering right now and went in right away.
It's not the most comfortable procedure in the world, but Olena made me feel at ease and the results are so worth it! We zipped away the vessels on my face and my neck/chest area - 15 min later I was on my way home.
Highly recommend the procedure and salon as a whole. Wonderful service and caring, expert hands.
excellent service, amazing results!. Olena has been doing my facials for years now, and i could not be any happier with the results. She truly is a professional when it comes to beauty and anti-aging treatments. Most recently, i had the genesis micro dermabrasion facial. The results were immediate! the fine lines and enlarged pores were almost invisible, and there was a dramatic improvement of the tone and texture of my face. My husband noticed the difference without me even saying anything! Another treatment that i am very happy with is the laser hair removal. I have already had a couple treatments done on my underarms and bikini area. The procedure was nearly painless. ( waxing to me is a lot more painful) And the results are great! I am looking forward to finishing my laser hair removal treatments at Olena's. I would recommend Olena's Spa and Salon to anyone who wants the perfect place to relax and unwind from the busy everyday life.
A nice surprise!.
I found out about Olena's after buying a discount Groupon a couple months ago for a micro-derm abrasion. It was a ways away from where I lived
I thought I would have to wait forever to get in, but the receptionist was very helpful and booked me for my 2nd choice in days. The treatment was not quite what I expected. I thought it might be painful, it wasn't. And Olena's hands are so wonderful and skilled when she is applying the lotions and doing the work. And my skin felt so soft the next day, I was happy that I did it. That was a month ago. I did not know at the time I booked my first appointment that they also did Laser treatments. I asked Olena about removing some small veins on my legs that I always disliked. She told me about the procedure, and so I decided to book another appointment. I had them removed about two weeks ago, and now they are completely gone. There was little pain, and a very quick procedure which took just a few days to heal completely. I will be so happy now when I put on my swim suit !! Thank you Olena !!!
I am so happy that I found your Spa!
European Facial Can't Be Beat. First came here because it was near my house. But after trying many other facials it is also the best. I get the ***European facial*** (it is the best) and sometimes the microdermabrasion (there is a another place I like better for this service). I love the results and I keep coming back. My skin looks fresh and rejuvenated. I have sensitive skin, but I don’t really have to worry about that here they take care not to irritate. I have come here a few times when my skin was broken out and their treatments helped.
Happy with the results!.
I have been to Olena's Spa in the past, and had a couple of facials which I was pleased with. So when I found out they had laser vein removal treatments, I thought about some small problem areas I would like treated. So I scheduled a treatment to be done in November. I was told I would have optimal results a few months down the road. Time will tell, but I like the results from the first treatment. Especially the small veins I had removed on my nose and cheek. They are mostly gone in one treatment!! I also had some small red dots, (Hemangiomas ?, I think) removed. It was quick and relatively painless. I've never had great clear skin. But it does look better, removing those small imperfections.
I also had the hair removed under my arm pits in the past, which I am very happy with, having almost 90% gone now.
I am a man and was a little nervous to go in for a treatment like this but I am glad I did. Olena's treated me with the care and professionalism that they showed to me in the past. I am definitely considering having more treatments done there, and would recommend this to my friends that live in the area. I think Olena's is probably the best full service spa center in SE Portland.
Great Results!. I have had some age spots on my face for years that I have been very unhappy with. I made an appointment with Olena to have them removed with a laser treatment. The actual treatment was very brief and within a few days the spots were faded considerably. I went in for another treatment to have more removed and another treatment on the first ones. I am very pleased with the results. My face looks clearer and brighter and I don't have to hide the spots anymore with lots of makeup. I would highly recomend Olena for laser treatments. She is very skilled and cares for her customers.
reliable and pleasant place.
As a long-time customer just want to say "thank you, thank you, thank you" for taking care of your clients with such a passion and devotion.
For many years I come once-twice a month, and will keep this schedule.
Suspicous Reviews. I was tempted to take advantage of an online deal and try out this salon, but when the majority of positive reviews all sound suspiciously alike (and even share the same misspellings), you can only guess that the salon is promoting itself with fake reviews.
