A M A Z I N G experience. I got a mani-pedi and a facial, and the whole time was amazing. David is very professional, and you can tell he loves his work. I left his salon feeling relaxed and refreshed, and my friends all thought I looked great afterwards. I am definitely going back again, except next time it will be on the first day of my vacation instead of the last. We all need to treat ourselves to a little pampering now and again, and this was just absolutely perfect for me.

I needed a last-minute appointment – I was coming to the area for my engagement photos and wanted to get a manicure/pedicure before the shoot. David was super accommodating and booked me a spot for the following day. He gave me the BEST manicure and pedicure I have ever received. I brought my own nail color with me (which was regular polish) – it’s been almost a week now and NO CHIPS AT ALL! I am in awe of his skill, courtesy, charm, and professionalism! The only thing that bums me out is that I live too far away to come more regularly… seriously can’t recommend David enough.

David is just fantastic. I have had many facials over the years but his was by far the best. I felt so refreshed and hydrated after the facial and yet my skin was not greasy like it often can feel after a treatment. I also had a great pedicure. He is a master!

I haven’t had a facial treatment in years. David’s Essential Facial was exactly what I needed. The whole experience was relaxing and incredible! I felt and looked years younger. He’s got a lot of years of experience behind him, and it shows in his work and professionalism. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

David Gerard is remarkable! I had my first appointment on April 7th. He performed a Refining facial and The Ultimate Firming Facial. My face has never felt better and it was so relaxing. I was able to see a difference right away. I also trusted David completely. He is a gentle and kind man and has magic hands. I highly recommend his treatments.

David is a true professional. His space is sophisticated, welcoming, and very clean. He recommended additional treatments during our consultation, which were perfect for my skin. I’d recommend David to everyone.

I had the most wonderful experience getting a mani-pedi at Desert Esthetica. David took wonderful care of me, did a terrific job, and I look forward to going back next time I am in town!

Lovely experience with this one-man shop! I had a manicure and it turned out great! David is friendly and professional. His space offers a much more personal and calming environment than going into a busy shop with lots of other people. Located on Ramon in an almost residential area was easy to get to and with ample parking. He offers lots of skin care services as well and has many years of experience, and his work demonstrates this.
