Information for you from others
I was referred to Richard Haxton by a mutual friend that I've known for years. I was so shocked to find out that she was 20 years older than her age. She told me that she goes to a guy in Los Altos who she said was the "best in the anti-aging industry" because of a breakthrough he had made. She also said that he was located in the Bay Area. My motto is "seeing is believing." I made an appointment and immediately I looked better so I signed up for a series like my friend did and the results are far more than I can imagine. Now, people are asking me, what did I do to keep looking youthful. I just refer them to him.
I have been a patient of Richard Haxton for a number of years, and I agree with other reviewers that he is fabulous! Richard is not only knowledgeable in skin solutions, but really catered treatments to my needs. But more importantly, he is honest, and forthright, in order for his patients to understand why each particular procedures is performed. With that said, all in all, I could not be happier with the results! =D.
Richard is also a very humorous guy. He loves to crack jokes, which makes the time spent with him all the more enjoyable. I am truly lucky to have been referred to him; If you can, visit Richard ASAP, because he truly is one of a kind!

Richard is amazing! I have been going to him for about 3 months now and I have to admit that I have seen great changes to my skin. After a year of searching since my normal gal left the area, I finally found my new skin care professional. Richard really takes the time to explain to you his background, his philosophy and approach to skin care. He has developed his own skin care line but NEVER pressures you to purchase them. And, after a few treatments and seeing the difference in my face but also understanding the importance of how to care for your skin outside of his care, I made an investment in his skin care line and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It's a bit pricey but you definitely get what you pay for and if you can see the difference in you face, it's definitely worth it. Now, as far as Richard goes...well, you can't get anymore professional than this guy! He know his stuff. He's very warm and hospitable and really makes you feel comfortable. I love his work so much that I referred my daughter to him who suffers from severe acne and he's definitely made a difference in her skin too! I always look forward to my monthly visits with him!
Richard is incredibly professional, always on time and very informative about skin care. I have had 3 sessions with Richard and I have already noticed firmer skin, less discoloration and a reduction in fine lines. Richard is a true gem and skin care magician!

I was referred by a friend to Richard Haxton's Transformational Skin Solutions. I'd been getting facials and spa treatments randomly, but had never consistently stayed with any particular skin specialist until Richard!! That was almost 4 years ago now and i have been a committed regular with Richard ever since. I absolutely love the treatments i go to him for which are the microdermabrasion, facial sculpting & LED treatment. I can really see the difference in my skin after my visits - looks clear and bright and less puffy. I also consistently get compliments on my skin so Richard is definitely doing something right :-)
What i really appreciate about Richard is that he always talks you through each of the treatments and you really understand the impact it has on your skin. He gives extremely good advice and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his work. I also love the products he uses - he develops them himself and feel great on the skin.
The salon itself is extremely clean and provides a very relaxing and calming environment. There is always plenty of parking.
Richard has a wonderful personality and i always look forward to my treatments with him. I highly recommend him.

I started going to Richard when I was working in Bay Area based on a friend's recommendation. The same day results were noticeable dramatic. The puffiness was gone, my skin was smooth and hydrated, and my bone structure was more defined. His educational background in skin therapy has not been matched by any other location or practitioner I have seen. Even though I am no longer staffed for work on the West coast, I continue to make the 3000 mile trips for Richard to do my facials. I don't trust anyone else to touch my face.

I was referred to Richard Haxton by a mutual friend. I was so impressed with the results of his skin care treatments on her that I had to know what she had been doing to her face.
Richard Haxton really loves his profession and his passion shows in his work. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the results from my initial treatment with Richard. He took his time explaining to me about the process of non-surgical facelift and what he would be doing to treat my skin.He also educated me about the proper foods to eat for healthy skin and what environmental to avoid.
As an African American woman, I was a little concerned, but at the end of the treatment, I immediately noticed a difference in appearance. As I left his office with my face glowing and no make-up, I felt rejuvenated and more alive. I can't wait for the subsequent treatments.
I've also referred him to some of my friends.

I was considering having a surgical facelift, but a trusted colleague recommended that I see Richard before making my decision. I have been seeing him for Haxton's Non-Surgical Face-Lift and LED Light Rejuvenation for several months, and the results have been amazing. I am constantly complimented on my beautiful skin and healthy glow. Someone mistook my husband for my father and he is only eight years older than I am and looks great! Richard is a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to have beautiful skin. I call him the Skin Wizard.
work is truly amazing. He is very professional, thorough, and extremely
knowledgeable about Skincare. I highly recommend anyone to come for his service
and you will start to see your life changed in a very positive way. Great job!
Thank you, Richard.
I first heard about
Richard Haxton from the Doctor I work for. He and his fiancé had been raving
about their results, which I had noticed. I was apprehensive as I tend to
have highly allergic skin. Now that I am getting into my mid 40’s with 3
children, I am noticing the signs of accelerated aging. I'm so glad I
decided to come in for the non-surgical face-lift. After the first
treatment, I was amazed. I have just finished my third treatment
adding the LED and Ultrasound and cannot believe how youthful my skin
looks. I have not looked this young in years. If you are ready to
rejuvenate your appearance and turn back the clock, I would highly recommend
Richard Haxton’s Transformational Skin Solutions of Los Altos. He is very
professional, caring, and well educated.

always been curious but never ventured to making an appointment till I was
introduced to Richard. I would call a salon or spa and never felt I received
adequate information of the therapy and information I requested prior to making
an appointment. Being a healthcare professional I want to be informed and ask
questions to understand what will be done to me and why. Richard is very
detailed in language you understand and his explanations of his therapies
integrate science with the process so that you understand what he is doing and
why. Richard gives excellent teach back instructions on your post appointment
care and even a follow up call. I am very impressed with Richards
professionalism and skill. My results are amazing, giving me a much more
youthful and healthy look. He is amazing and I have the highest standards so to
meet them is impressive. I highly recommend Skin Solutions in
Los Altos to everyone. On another note he is an all round great person with a
fabulous personality that you want to be around.
This evening, my yoga instructor (who is younger than I am) thought I was in high school. Then earlier in the day, a nurse at work thought I was a student... Thank you Richard Haxton
Richard's treatments are truly the fountain of youth. People guess me 10 years younger now! So glad you're in Los Altos, LOVE the new location! Richard's advanced education and true caring makes a difference in your skin and your life.

Richard does great work and is the best facialist I have seen in
the bay area. I have referred patients to him and they have raved about
their results. I am a Physician that uses natural medicine to help improve
my patients energy, hormones and weight. Richard's services have helped
my patients improve their look and taken years of their skin faster.
His non-surgical face-lift technique is non-abrasive and does not cause
any skin irritation that you may see from other procedures.

Richard is amazing! I found Richard through a Living Social
deal. I'd been buying facials and spa treatments left and right through my
Living Social account, but had never gone back to any of the places. The
location inside is super nice, clean, and relaxing. Richard is very
personable, and I felt comfortable with him right away. He provided me with
a lot of information about my skin, the process, his training and
background, and the importance of good diet and hydration for my
skin. Richard has his own products that you can buy. He didn't want to
sell them to me at our first meeting, and encouraged me to do my own
research first to understand why the products worked, and then I could
purchase them from him at our next meeting. Ultimately, I felt so
fantastic and looked so good after my facial, that I wanted the products
that he had used, so I insisted that I would buy them then and there. The
products are as amazing as Richard. His amino lift product is absolutely
MAGIC! I've been back to Richard on a regular basis. He always treats me
very fairly, and I trust that he really just cares about people. My skin
looks amazing, and people often guess that I am 10 years younger than I

Describing Richard's magic in a yelp review is nearly
impossible, but here goes. I've never been loyal to any skin care
professional, because they all just seem so blah. Richard is different
though. A year or so back I came to him with so many concerns about my face
(bigger pores, wrinkles, PIMPLES, dry skin, etc), and who would have thunk
that he would have me running back to him consistently? I eagerly await each
appointment and always get such a satisfying result. He gives me so many tips
about how to take care of my skin and I just tried one now, and ooo lala my
skin is so smooth. He's genuinely just wants to make sure you feel good
about your skin and he just does what he can to have a positive
impact. Thank you Richard!!!

I went to see Richard because I am about to go on vacation and
I have heard that he is one of the best in the Bay Area. I can confirm that
the service that I received was one of the best I have ever had! So it
starts off with an informative breakdown of the skin and the significance
of facial care, dietary consumptions, and medical pointers in which raised
my awareness as to how to better take care of my self and skin. Richard
is a Medical Skin Care Specialist and so I was expecting a doctors clinic
and I was pleasantly surprised as he has a nicely decorated office in a
center. I hopped onto the table and he put some medicated cleansing soap
which was needed to perform a facial profile to understand my skin type,
with a special light before the microdermabrasion commenced. After that a
cleansing mask, which smelled of papayas, was applied and I could feel my
skin becoming firmer from that alone (what is in it?) and then I got a hand
massage with a nice moisturizing type of oil and some warming mitts. Finally an acne cream was applied and my face seems significantly
slimmer, healthier, and dare I say, happier from this experience. I intend
on coming back! There is a review that someone is expecting results
through time over quality. Time spent does not equal quality. After a deep
cleansing to your face it can be expected that breakouts could occur
especially if you don't maintain your face or health, as Richard's
treatment will (or any other) break up the old toxins and draw them out or
away, and one will usually need to go periodically for maintenance. A
teenager could figure this out. Richard H. is a medical Skin Care
Specialist who apparently had celebrity clientele and offers luxury
products. Key word is "Medical" and although his settings are
spa-like, it isn't a spa. Anyway, I plan on going back since I have to do
some public speaking soon! Wish me luck!

Richard Haxton is amazing. Met him through a recommendation from
a friend and have been more than pleased with his services. There is no other
place that I know of for tangible facial sculpting results. He has advanced
degrees in medical skin care and his detoxifying approach shows results as if
I had gone under the knife. If you serious about your skin and aren't
interested in the fluffy facial, Richard is for you. He's amazing!
B., Seattle, WA Yelp! 5
I met Richard and it was a pleasant surprise to find a
professional with his training, talent and passion. I was expecting
your typical spa experience, with fragrant oils and a massage of some sort.
But this was Grade A medical level treatment on top of the spa
experience. I am so pleased with the results! After the first
session I was hooked. In addition to the quality of his services, I
appreciate his integrity and kindness as a business person. --what more
can you say about the person who makes you look FABulous?
V B., Sunnyvale, CA Yelp! 5 stars
I've just returned from a facial sculpting session with Richard
and the results are remarkable!
My skin looks healthier and is more pliant than it has been in
years. In addition to being
extremely knowledgeable in his field, he has a very soothing
demeanor; a true professional!
I looking forward to my next treatment with him.

With the challenging economy that we are living with now, I feel
it's even more important to present oneself in a positive light. I am a
male client and Richard's facial resurfacing and sculpting along with his
nutritional guidance has made me look 12 to 15 years younger. His
specialized techniques are only available in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area
and I was very fortunate to have a friend refer me to his office. I am
looking younger and refreshed, friends are now asking me if I've just gotten
back from vacation or had a little "something" done! With Richard
Haxton, I received the serious results I was looking for.

I met Richard through another of his clients who has beautiful
skin. He is absolutely amazing and I trust all of his advice
His peels are gentle yet effective and I also see him for his
facial sculpting and dermabrasion.I absolutely LOVE the facial
My face is looking better & better. Lines and wrinkles are
His unique methods and caring personality makes each visit the
highlight of my week. I see Richard weekly and I've never looked
Redwood City, CA
I have been a client of Richard's for several months and he has provided skin care beyond anything or anyone I have known. My skin is very, shall we say, mature! And so am I! Understanding that he had a lot of "work" to do, I can tell you he worked miracles. Am I pleased with the results? Absolutely! I would recommend Richard, his knowledge, his expertise, his professionalism, his products to anyone interested in improving the quality and health of his or her skin. I have had people ask me to prove I am the age I say I am because I look 10-15 years younger. Richard is excellent in all that he does for you. That's the truth.
I've had several facials throughout my life but I've never experienced a facial quite like Richard's. Richard's technique is unique and really works. It's more like a facial you would receive from a dermatologist minus all the chemicals in a spa-like atmosphere. I've had 4 facials from Richard over the past 6 months and I can say that my skin has never looked better. I had started to have dark and puffy circles under my eyes but after these treatments, they have practically disappeared. My face is no longer puffy and I can say that. The treatments are relaxing and Richard's always been a joy to work with. Facials are pricey but the results are priceless! Thanks for everything Richard!
