I have had several treatments at Bella by Alethea, including a laser treatment package and separate facials. I have never been made to wait more than 3-5 minutes after walking in. The front desk staff is always very polite and caring. When you walk in, the atmosphere is more like a relaxing spa, instead of a sterile doctors office.

Always very prompt - in and out quickly. Only recommendation I can make is to be sure safety goggles are wiped between each patient. One time, mine looked a little dirty. They keep very good records. My preferences & settings from previous treatments are always known .

I only intended to have a quick oil change at Auto Express in Santa Cruz, and asked if they could also install my brake pads and rotors. I had all the wrong parts, but the guys came up with the correct ones within an hour and had my car all ready to go within 2. The price was very reasonable especially considering the level of service I received. They did a great job and were friendly and knowledgeable. I would refer them to others and of course return again for my auto service.

I went to Bella to get laser work done on spider veins on my ankle. Being a rather skeptical person I wanted to only do one ankle first and see what the results would be. After the first and second treatment I couldn't see much results but after the third and fourth time I could really see a difference. I was so impressed by the final results that I made another series of appointments for the second ankle. II have had nothing but great service and results from the procedure I have had. They get me in on time, always friendly, and do a terrific job. I never have to wait when I get there, they get me in and out very quick, book my next appointment and off I go. Overall from my experience, I would recommend this place to anyone.

Bella by Alethea is a small, personal spa with friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. I have experienced both spider vein and hair removal treatments.
The spider vein treatment went very well. I had developed a bruise-like cluster of veins on the back of my right thigh (just above the knee) while carrying my second child, and after eight years figured it wasn't going away on its own. Because it was so obvious, I was self-conscious about wearing shorts or short skirts. After four treatments, the cluster was diminished in size and color by about 90% so that it is now significantly less obvious.
Although I am also satisfied with my under arm hair removal treatments, their efficacy was not what I originally expected so I advise potential clients not to get their hopes up too high. During my initial visit, I was told that most individuals achieve complete hair removal after 4-6 sessions, and as someone with fair skin and dark hair should respond well to the laser. I was also told that the percentage of hair removal for each session is about 10 to 20% and every client experiences different results. Optimistically, I expected to be hair-free after four times!
However, after four appointments I was only at about 40% reduction. Prior to my fifth and sixth treatments, I spoke with the technician about my disappointed expectations and in both cases she promised to adjust the laser for more pronounced results. But after my 6th treatment I was still at only about a 60% reduction. At this point I emailed the company via their website and was answered directly by the owner, Alethea, who invited me to meet with her at my next appointment so that she could review my chart and adjust my treatment. She did so, and after this 7th treatment I was at about 85% reduction. In hindsight, I would recommend emailing the company earlier with concerns rather than just consulting with the technician.
So although I didn't experience 100% hair removal, the remaining hair is finer and lighter in color so that I no longer feel like I have to shave every day - rather two to three times a week. An acquaintance who is a dermatologist told me that there is no such thing as permanent hair removal and that at least some of the removed hair should gradually return. I have noticed this somewhat over the months since my last treatment (in August 2011) so will plan to return to Bella by Alethea for a touch up treatment.
I also wanted to mention that although another friend complained about how painful her hair removal treatments were (at a different spa), I would characterize my sessions as more uncomfortable than painful. The technicians offer you a cold pack in preparation for the treatment, and blow cold air on the area throughout the laser treatment. They also give you aloe afterwards. I wouldn't have signed up for 12 sessions if I found the experience painful!
Overall I would recomment Bella by Alethea.

I have been going to Bella about 3 times so far for laser hair removal and have experienced nothing but professionalism and great customer service. The staff is always courteous and friendly. I have seen 3 different service providers for my LHR and have been more than happy with each one of them, along with each service. I will be a client for life!

This is a great spa with courteous and knowledgeable staff. I've had laser hair removal treatment as well as an IPL facial treatment; I can't wait for my next visit! I have had great results and my skin has never looked better! Thanks to the staff at Bella.

I did a series of three laser treatments to stimulate collagen production. My skin looks tighter and more even. Alethea coudn't have been more professional, and her advice and service was even better than what I expected.

Fabulous medi-spa.... beautiful, relaxing, and... results oriented. Alethea (owner/operator) and her staff are extremely knowledgeable, skilled, professional, patient, and very kind/compassionate. My goal has been to reverse some sun damage on my chest/neck and nix some redness on my cheeks/nose. After only four affordable laser treatments, I'm already seeing positive results... and much faster than I expected. I'll be a regular.

I am very satisfied with my decision to go to this place. I was happy with all the laser service I got except my lower leg. After 6 session of laser hair removal, I can say that 50% of hair is gone. The service is really good and they are all super nice.

Very popular! Bella MedSpa is definitely doing something right to keep up its popularity. I have visited spas near and far, and Bella is definitely #1 when it comes to being an in-demand spa. Whenever I visit, the place is never empty. This is usually managed well, but I did have to wait 30 minutes for an appointment the last time. Considering this was my third appointment and a first time occurrence, the issue was understandable and appeared to be uncommon. Coincidentally that day, I also had the nicest laser tech I have encountered, so she made up for the delay.
When it comes to price, Bella is a front-runner. The spa provides great quality for your money, especially compared to its other competitors in the area. They clearly work hard to offer affordable options to clients. Moreover, I do not believe that I have ever seen the owner, Alethea, with a frown on her face.
By the way, here’s a tip for booking laser hair appointments: always book online. If you call, you will likely find an appointment 1-2 months in advance. If you place your appointment online, you will likely find an appointment in days or a week tops.
