Reviews for Panacea Aesthetics and Wellness Center

5.0 Review from L.D. Source: Yelp Oct 04 2023

"Best facial that I have ever had and I have had a lot since I am 54 years old. This is the third time that I have been there and I’ve never had to wait for my service and all of the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. This is the only place I will go to for my facials and Botox from now on."

"I finally got the courage to go get Botox for the first time, and I am so impressed and grateful for my experience with Panacea Wellness, Sal, and the rest of the staff (I didn’t get to meet Manal, next time ). I bought my initial Botox units on Groupon, which is great that they offer, it gets the resistant people like me in the door . Upon entering, shaking with "first time" nerves, I was greeted with the friendliest smiles and people! I felt so welcomed by the nice girls at the front desk (Lana & Miranda). I was promptly taken to a room and was quickly greeted by Sal! Sal is such a good hype-man, and made me feel comfortable with his chill and personable vibe, he was clear and thorough about what Botox is, what it does, the procedure, etc. He even recommended a book for autoimmune disease that his wife really benefitted from, and explained their passion for holistic wellness which I really appreciate. When I checked out I definitely got up sold, which is expected, they’re a business, but I was also so there for it lol I was basically like here, take my money, let’s do this sis! Thank you Panacea for your warm welcomes and making me feel like a queen!  I’m looking forward to future visits and my first hydrafacial next month!!"

"My overall experience here has been beyond my expectations.  Amazing staff upfront who are hospitable and welcoming.  Lana does an exceptional job with Microderm and is highly knowledgeable with our skin and it’s needs.  Sal and Manal are leading experts with total health, wellness, and beauty both aesthetically and also helps us understand that beauty also starts from care from within.  Sal and Manal treated me during a minor procedure with total care, and empathy and I walked out from their clinic feeling empowered, hopeful, and more confident about my beauty and well being.  The types of care that Sal, Manal, and team offer are much more than a day spa.  I felt like I found more of a sanctuary in Sal and Manal’s wholesome care.   An overall amazing experience that everyone must seek for their wellness and beauty! I am beyond grateful to Sal, and Manal for how they’ve helped me transform my mind and beauty.  Linda"

"I get the absolute best treatment & results from Panacea Aesthetics. Sal and Manal have become like family to me. I don’t trust anyone else with my face. Sal is incredibly knowledgeable about facial anatomy and the science behind the products he uses. When Sal and Manal do any work on my face, they work seamlessly together to achieve only the most natural and balanced-looking results. They have the best eye for what looks good and works with my features. They are also honest about what works and what doesn’t and never steer me in a direction that would waste my time or money or make me look weird. With the lips specifically, Manal’s technique produces the most beautiful pout I’ve ever gotten, and I’ve been getting my lips done since I was 19 (I’m 30 now). No matter if I go in for little touch ups, or more extensive work, I come out un-bruised and never overdone. I come home and my boyfriend can’t even tell that I’ve had anything done, but all my friends comment that I look more fresh, awake, and want to know which medspa I use. Equally as importantly, both Sal and Manal have the most gentle touch. I have a severe needle phobia that reaches back to childhood that often results in near fainting spells. When I go to Panacea, I never have this problem and often times don’t need numbing cream. Recently I was shocked when Manal drew my blood for PRP injections and I could not feel the needle in my arm. This has never happened in my entire life! I am comfortable and confident having them do anything with my face. I must add that when it comes to skincare Lana is incredible. She is so knowledgeable about anti aging, ZO products, sun damage, and what is important for my acne-prone skin as well as what is needed to keep my  skin youthful for years to come. I’m confident that with Lana’s advice I can avoid getting a facelift in my senior years. Overall I can’t say enough great things about Panacea. They are an important part of what makes me look the way I do and maintain my ideal look. I always leave Panacea with a smile on my face. I owe them a great deal of gratitude and am so thankful to have them here in Newport."

"I love this place. So glad that I found them, the staff are so helpful and thoroughly explain what your results will be. They don’t try to push you into  more expensive or unnecessary treatments.  They truly want you to feel good about what you decide to do., UNLIKE the pretty little beauty spa on PCH by my home in CDM that had me looking like  a cross between the Joker and the Cat Lady of NYC  that had suffered a stroke!      I will not be shopping around ever again for Botox,! These guys are truly the absolute best, no bruising, no drooling out the side of your mouth and you walk out of their place feeling and looking great!"

5.0 Review from T.M. Source: Yelp Mar 30 2023

"where do I start?! The front desk is amazing they’re super patient &  helpful -I feel like when I have questions or concerns or what options they’re  always there to assist always professional,  always a reminder call always a check in after service - The front desk is outstanding. The location is beautiful, easy parking and when you enter the building and walk into their studio it’s just gorgeous it’s clean , fresh and light. I’ve had my lips done twice here and it is by far the best job I’ve ever had!  I’ve done my lips multiple times in my life but I won’t go anywhere else again. Today when I spoke with Sal he was saying he thought the hollowness under my eyes Was aging me and suggested just a little filler.  I have to say it’s remarkable what a difference it made. **But this is key -he took the time to explain it , he heard my concerns about being over done and proceeded with it in mind. My lips are FABULOUS  And I really think I’m going to enjoy the look of my cheeks and under my eyes-  Even at a angle I notice it’s a more youthful look. I did a touch of Botox for the 11s. Another key point ; he stated using it in the center would help but using it on the outside would not do much so why overuse the product or waste money . It’s a business that integrity and skill are imperative. They have it! I thank everybody at panacea for the professionalism and the artistic way they work on each individual. You are awesome thank you"
