A European Day Spa

Centrally located in the heart of Los Angeles' hip luxury shopping area, Robertson Boulevard, Carasoin Day Spa and Skin Clinic offers an elegant atmosphere with trained professionals, top-of-the-line products and effective treatments. The spa's founder, Lena Bratschi, understands that the busy L.A. lifestyle leaves little time for pampering, and because of that, physical results are just as important as the mental benefits.

Originally from Switzerland, Bratschi set out to create a true European day spa in L.A. with treatments that are not only relaxing, but that produce actual results. Carasoin's result-driven treatments — from facials and skin repair to massages and wraps — incorporate the Elemis line of skincare products, as well as Luzern and DNA. Featured services include Skin Intelligence for Men, Carasoin Spa Ritual Massage, Aroma Stone Therapy and the Cellutox Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap. Carasoin recently added a Hollywood favorite to its list, The Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial, which uses a therapeutic-grade oxygen infusion system and antioxidants for a visibly firming lift.

Services are provided in the spa's five spacious treatment rooms, with state-of-the-art SO Sound beds that incorporate sound waves to recreate the feeling of being in the womb, providing a relaxing and calming ambience. In addition, Carasoin provides a hidden and quiet atmosphere in the Robertson Plaza courtyard where Angelenos can get the results they want from treatments that fit their busy lives. Visitors can also benefit from Carasoin's services, as it is the spa for The London West Hollywood Hotel. If desired, the spa even offers services off-site upon request.
