What our patients are saying about us.

I was overwhelmed by the excellent service that I received at Pura Vida Medspa. Dr. Apgar has a way of making you feel very comfortable talking about sensitive issues then gives you options with fantastic results. I can’t be happier with my results❣️
Response from the owner: Teresa, it has been our privilege to treat you. Delighted that you are seeing good results and that you are happy. That's what it's all about!
it's a great experience to have the consultation with nurse Dawn, she was very professional, took her straightforward advice, and the entire laser process was gentle and caring for my very first time. The staffs were helpful, well trained which you won't feel hesitant to ask any questions. Thanks the team and Amy for post follow up.
Amazing experience and place for all things facials ! Go see chayna and You will not be disappointed! She is truly a professional and so lovely and honest. I would never go to anyone else!! I hope she stays here for a long time:)
I received miraDry treatment from Pura Vida. All the staff was amazing to talk with. The procedure went very smoothly. The staff checked in with me regularly to follow up on the recovery over the next few weeks and were super responsive to my questions and concerns. I recommend receiving miraDry from Pura Vida
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Pura Vida where I encountered a professional and warm staff. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with kind smiles and a welcoming atmosphere.The professionals I worked with were incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in their field. They took the time to explain each procedure thoroughly and answer all of my questions, which put me at ease. Their expertise was evident in the way they handled each treatment and ensured my comfort throughout the process.Not only was the staff professional, but they were also exceptionally kind. They genuinely cared about my well-being and made sure I felt comfortable and relaxed during my visit, and as I navigated a personal issue which delayed my services. They went above and beyond to ensure that my experience was positive and enjoyable.The level of customer service provided by this medical spa was truly outstanding. The staff went out of their way to accommodate my needs and preferences, making me feel like a valued guest. Their attentiveness created a truly personalized experience that exceeded my expectations.Overall, my experience was exceptional. I would highly recommend Pita Vida to anyone looking for a top-notch experience with a friendly and knowledgeable team.
Karen and Amy are amazing. Took their time to answer all my questions about the Miradry procedure. The procedure is quick, and they do a great job numbing the area so it’s relatively pain free. Very happy with results, and would highly recommend.
Excellent service along with polite front desk staff. Very informative and not pressing to purchase any other services for products client is/isn’t interested in.
Love this medspa! Beautiful and clean inside. Amazing services provided by highly competent professionals. They seem to stay very up to date on trends and products. I recommend this medspa to everyone!
Very friendly staff that listens and provides great results. I love that I can schedule an appointment through text and I never have to wait long. Also, I don’t feel like I’m pressured to buy more things or being up sold which is a huge plus.
I had an amazing time visiting Pura Vida today! I would usually travel to DC/Bethesda to visit my usual meds spa…I was so happy to find one close to home. They have the most professional staff that made me feel so welcomed.I am excited to start my journey with pura vida! Dawn was the sweetest and made my appointment super fun. I can’t wait to come back. Thank you Pura Vida!!
1000% would recommend. I have been to this Spa 6 times for Cool Laser treatments and will continue to be a loyal customer. The cool laser is a fantastic treatment to address any surface hyperpigmentation and I use the treatment a few times a year as a yearly "face service" so that I can keep up with the continuous and inevitable sun damage/aging process. It's clean and beautifully decorated, but most importantly, their staff is top-notch. They are responsive, accommodating, customer-driven and make the experience enjoyable every time. A huge shout out to Carolyn who makes this place shine. I don't think this spa would be quite as amazing without her.
Response from the owner: Kristin, thanks so much for the kind words. Your experience is what we strive for with each patient interaction. And we agree with you about Carolyn. We are all better for having her in our midst for sure!
A couple of weeks ago, I went to Pura Vida because my dentist recommended masseter muscle botox. I had a great consultation with Karen and could not be happier with how things went. When I came back for my recheck, I also asked about filler and had a consult with Molly. I decided to go for it, and Molly was great. I’m only 24 hours out, but it’s looking good, so I am confident it will look fantastic when It’s all healed.
Loved the experience. I have sensitive skin and I booked a facial and loved it. The Team took the time to understand my skin needs. Looking forward to my next visit!
I have had an amazing experience at Pura Vida Med Spa. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They explain everything as they go and answer any questions I have without trying to push any extra services on me. I highly recommend giving them a try.
I love Pura Vida and highly recommend them. The staff is exceptional and the office is clean and welcoming. Pura Vida is an excellent place that offers various services. I recently started neurotoxin injections and the life changing painless laser hair removal. I can already see results and am excited to continue each professional treatment.
I could not be happier with my results. I have gotten both my lips and nasolabial folds done at Pura Vida and this is the best they’ve looked in the 10+ years of me getting filler. I’ve had a great experience with Pura Vida and have gotten honest answers to all my questions.
So happy I was referred to this place! I was nervous about getting Botox for the first time but the nurses were so knowledgable and helped walk me through the process, expectations, and answered all my questions. Also very, very pleased with results. Pura Vida has been so professional and the space is very relaxing, clean, and friendly. I'm looking forward to exploring some of the rest of what the have to offer in the coming year!
Michelle is fantastic! I’ll absolutely never go anywhere else. The front desk is super friendly and welcoming. I love how clean and new everything looks- cannot recommended enough!
I have been coming to puravida for a few months and I absolutely love it! The staff is super professional and informed. They are able to answer any and every question I have from laser hair removal to facials. Dawn, Linda and Karen are super sweet and make you feel comfortable. My skin has cleared up so much from the routine Linda recommended. The space is always super clean and I always feel like I’m being pampered. 10/10 and I will continue to keep coming! 💜
Love this place! the staff is always friendly & welcoming. Amy was great, and informative! I'm so happy with my results. will definitely be going back!
I’ve visited for facials and have had positive experiences. It’s a clean and comfortable atmosphere and the staff is friendly and professional. They are happy to answer questions, but are not pushy at all about products or services. I definitely plan to keep coming back!
