Updating my Milan experience. My experience with Milan has been wonderful! I've had Instructor Ms. Imani, Ms. Katherine and Ms. Szilvia as Instructors and they are outstanding Instructors. They all have amazing experience and their passion shows in their instruction. All of them have made learning engaging and fun. I stated in my previous review that I believe the environment you are in is essential for success; Milan has shown me a continuous positive, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and I am grateful to be here. *Please see photos for my original review.

I have gone to Milan a couple times now and I am just so impressed with the service and treatment operations. I went yesterday for my very first facial ever and it was magnificent! Madison at check-in was lovely and welcoming. Gladys was sweet and gentle. I will absolutely be returning for more pampering and will definitely be spreading the word of the fabulousness that Milan offers!

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a facial by the talented Amanda, and let me tell you, it was out of this world! From the moment I stepped into the spa, I was greeted by Madison at the front desk, who provided superb service with a smile that could light up the room. She was incredibly helpful and made sure I was comfortable and well taken care of. Now, let's talk about Amanda. Her skills are nothing short of magical! She has a gentle touch and a keen eye for detail, making sure every inch of my face was pampered to perfection. The products she used were top-notch, and I could feel the difference in my skin almost immediately. Amanda's expertise and knowledge of skincare are truly impressive, and she took the time to explain each step of the process, making me feel like I was in the best hands possible. The atmosphere of the spa was incredibly relaxing, with soothing music and a calming scent that instantly put me at ease. The entire experience was so enjoyable that I found myself wishing it would never end. But alas, all good things must come to a close, and when it was time to leave, I felt like a brand new person – refreshed, rejuvenated, and absolutely glowing. I cannot recommend Amanda's facials enough, and I will most definitely be going back for more. And don't forget to say hello to Madison at the front desk – she'll make sure your experience is nothing short of amazing.
