I love this place. I’ve never had great skin but I have noticed some improvement since I started getting Laser Genesis treatments. If you’ve had problem skin all your life, you have to have realistic expectations. My skin will never be HD-pretty or porcelain-pretty, but it’s improved. What’s really nice about this place is the way they treat their clients. When you come through the door, you feel as if everyone’s trying to cater to your needs, even when they’re busy. The place is also clean & they play the theme songs from my fave Korean dramas! Haha! Special mention to Dr. & Mrs. Shum, Vera, and of course my nurses Cathy & Helen. But really, I feel like everyone here treats their clients not only profesionally, but kindly as well.
SUMMARY: A medical spa and beauty center serving the San Gabriel Valley since 2005. Regular treatments include basics like facials and hair/mole removal to advanced procedures like IPL and multi-series body shaping.
Using my CASQ shortcut for cost, atmosphere, service and quality; here goes…
C – Not prohibitive for frequent visits. Know the procedure you want before a consultation and subscribing to packages. Hardly wise to buy 10 sessions if you haven’t let your skin go through one treatment successfully.
A – Clean and private treatment rooms. Setting attuned to calming your 5 senses during your entry and procedure (muted colors throughout, hygienic warm towels, soothing music, refreshments pre and post treatment, and lightly scented rooms.) Spacious upstairs area with gym.
S – Needs improvement in screening patients during busy hours (late afternoon to evening.) Book ahead (up to 1 month) and ask for a 1 day prior reminder call.
Q – Products used are aesthetician and medical professional approved. On-site doctor reviews each procedure pre-during-post. Private label skincare priced less than comparable OTC and department store labels with effective medical grade ingredients. More suited for mid-aging skin, with some teen (acne) products.
OVERALL: Go if you’re in the area for errands and visiting family. Not a day spa for lingering like Burke Williams or hotel spas. Full menu of Maintenance treatments and no downtime procedures. Dr. Shum and his staff seem dedicated to customers well-being and regularly hold fitness and nutrition seminars and workshops for teens, and men and seniors beyond offerings for their mainly female clients.
First time laser treatment here! Great service and knowledgable staff. Highly recommend people who are looking for any beauty service. The front desk is very friendly!
Went in so I can check out the laser treatments offered. I asked alot of questions and tried to side track the consultation lady but she seemed to know what she was talking about. I ended up going with an acne facial first then I will have laser treatments for my mild acne spots.
I’ve been coming to DSC for laser treatments over the past few months. I saw they are currently running a Groupon offer so I thought I’d submit my review to help someone in making a decision. I am very happy I found DSC last Fall and will continue to come here for treatments. I came for a consultation because I wanted to work on reducing pigmentation (brown spots) on my Asian skin. It turns out they were the right choice for me …. and they offer many different kinds of treatments.
I understand to get obvious improvement on my skin needs more treatments. DSC the place lets me see my skin getting better by their patiently and professionally care. Consultant Vera who is very honest to analyze some of lasers to my skin may be not suitable. She recommends I do facial and laser combination treatment. What I paid, what I got. This place didn’t over promise and charge me. I like this place and the team.
