Patient Testimonials

I wouldn’t trust any other place then PuraVida with any skin care procedure. I always feel amazing and beautiful when I leave. The staff is amazing and they always make you feel comfortable and relaxed. I highly recommend PuraVida to anyone.
Dr. Leslie Apgar is very knowledgeable and takes the time to go over all of the different procedures to find the one that is best suited for you!
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.
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!
Simply put.. I love Linda . All are nice and welcoming even at the front desk! 💕
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.
Great experience! Dawn was very gentle and knowledgeable. Took the time to explain process and expected results. I would definitely recommend.
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!
Amazing experience with Dawn & the rest of the staff. Beautiful, clean & safe office. Couldn’t be happier with my results.
Great experience! Amy was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Loved the results!
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! 💜
Amy was super nice and knowledgeable! Loved the hydrafacial she did on me!!! I will be back for sure!
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!
Wonderful service and very happy with the service! I have already returned and will again!
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!
very clean and nice staff. they were able to perform my procedure the same day and my consult
I have been receiving laser hair removal with PuraVida and will continue to look into other services offered!! The staff are all knowledgeable, organized and extremely warm hearted. Big plus that the laser treatment is painless as well; as other places I have received consults from do not have the updated machinery like this medical spa. Overall, LOVE IT!
For any & all needs I come here . Laser, facials, neurotoxins anything you need please come here . All the staff is so knowledgeable and will only do what you are comfortable with doing . They don’t get annoyed when asking questions or needing guidance . Dawn is an amazing laser tech and Linda is so knowledgeable on what your face needs just by looking at you. The front desk staff is so kind and patient and will work with your schedule . The place is SO clean and neat . Please come here for all your needs.
From the time I scheduled my appointment until now - everyone at the spa was overly accommodating with every aspect of their services. This was my first time getting injectables so I was a little nervous and didn't know what to expect. I met with Karen and she was so informative and I felt like she truly wanted what was best for me, and wouldn't talk me anything unnecessary or allow me to do anything too drastic before my wedding. It was all of the small little gestures and suggestions that just really made me feel like they care and everyone is SO knowledgeable about what they do. I'm absolutely loving the results and don't know why I didn't book an appointment sooner!
I recently had a facial with Linda and it was amazing! She listened to my concerns and was incredibly helpful suggesting products to use at home. This is one of the first facials I've had where the extractions were not painful either. Thank you Linda!
Chanya was amazing. She talked me through each step of my facial, educating me with each product and technique she used. I was completely relaxed and glowing afterwards! The establishment itself was clean, organized, warm and welcoming. Covid precautions were taken seriously making me feel safe while there. I will be back!
I booked a custom facial with Linda a week ago and loved the results. I had acne marks, dry skin and general skin questions. She gave me great info and my skin looks so much better!
Got the MiraDry treatment here and the ladies were awesome. Super pleased with the outcome, and the experience could not have been more pleasant or informative. So happy to not have a sweat issue anymore :). Sweet staff and quality medical professionals. Def recommend!
Just got my first cool peel! I was numbed beforehand and talked through the entire process, it was minimally painful. Totally worth it, very quick process. The Pura Vida staff are a breath of fresh air, so friendly and professional. I recommend this little gem of a Medical Spa to ANYONE!
I have had great experiences at Pura Vida! The staff are super helpful when picking new products and I love the way my skin feels when I leave!
Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. The office is beautiful and very accommodating. Karen and Lauren are very professional and I always leave feeling refreshed. Would highly recommend this medspa for your aesthetic needs!!
I cannot express in words how awesome this place is. I just finished my appointment (skinwave facial, Botox and filler) and my skin looks AMAZING. I just booked my next appointment! The place is gorgeous, the staff treats you like family and is super knowledgeable, and the all-in experience is super relaxing and pampering. In particular, I can’t rave enough about the skinwave facial with Karen. I will be back soon!!
Incredible experience from start to finish. An energetic staff that want to make you look and feel beautiful. This is the place for all of your skincare needs.
Crystals is the most awesome aesthetician, she provides great service and I love coming back.
Every time I've visited Pura Vida, the staff has made sure that I have an excellent experience. Both the ambiance and professionalism of the staff make me feel very relaxed. Linda did several Brazilian laser treatments on me, and made sure that an experience that could have been potentially awkward was comfortable and even humorous! I'd highly recommend Pura Vida to friends and family.
I highly recommend this spa for laser work to even out your skin and make it glow. The staff is very friendly and professional as well as informative. Linda, RN is a wonder.
The best place for your skin care needs!! Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. So many treatment options for your needs. I love the enzyme peel and how it makes my skin feel and look. The products they sell are amazing too. No pushy sales either. Kim really helped me with my home skin care options. You will not go anywhere else once you visit Pura Vida!!
I have been going to Pura Vida Med Spa now for two and a half years and I am elated with the results.I have been so extremely pleased with not only the professional service I have received, but with the honesty in guiding me to procedures that would work best for me and my skin type. The office and procedure rooms are extremely clean, and the equipment is state of the art. The friendly and caring staff is just the cherry on top to this wonderful Med Spa, which I would highly recommend.
