I am Maria and I’m an experienced Esthetician with an unrivaled reputation for personal attention and outstanding service.

My calm, intimate spa in the heart of San Francisco overlooks Union Square. I provide facial, waxing, brow design services and organic skin care products by appointment between 11:00AM and 6:00PM Tuesday through Saturday.

Please contact me for an appointment or a complementary consultation at 166 Geary Street, Suite 1505 across the street from Neiman Marcus, (between Grant and Stockton).



I am passionate about the total well-being of my clients and have been providing facial, waxing, brow design services and organic skin care products in San Francisco for 26 years:

  • Facials –  My facial specialties include deep cleaning, peels, ampoule hydration and customized masques
  • Facial Products – I keep current with the very latest developments in new, natural, and organic products.  I am in the best position to recommend skin care solutions to meet each of my client’s unique needs
  • Brazilian Bikini Waxing – According to my clients I have developed amazingly fast and comfortable Brazilian bikini waxing techniques
  • Brows Design – I have perfected the techniques of sculpturing and shaping brows
  • Addition of Éminence products My clients are very interested in their total well-being and very careful about what they put in, and on, their bodies.  They know I am passionate about organic treatments, and look to me for advice and guidance.  After much research I chose Éminence because they are chemical free, take a natural, holistic approach to skin care to enhance your well-being naturally, and are made with only fresh ingredients from organic environments.   This makes them nutrient rich and not only the healthiest choice, but also the most effective, results oriented collection around.
  • Jewelry  – I have been designing, making and selling jewelry for 5 years and, in addition to what you can see in my Spa, some my collection is now available on Etsy.  For details please visit my Beauty Secrets Blog or click on the Etsy link below.


Client Testimonials

Check out what freelance writer Parmeeta Ghoman had to say about European Skin Care by Maria in her recent articleBest Waxing Salons in San Francisco”, published on the CBS San Francisco Bay Area website, or by clicking here.  Or see the column, “On The Town Favorites” in the San Francisco Chronicle, where a client said “I feel like … a star when I come out” …. of European Skin Care by Maria.

“I have been going to Maria for almost 15 years.  I have an appointment every six to eight weeks and always look forward to seeing her.  I’m always amazed at how wonderful my skin looks after my visit.  She is extremely professional and knowledgeable about the best types of treatment for my skin type and she always recommends products that are best for me, rather than those that are the most popular.”

— Kimberley, Interior Designer
