All I can say is Francine has changed my life. I am SO SO SO glad I found her and I can thank my friends for recommending her. I have struggled with acne ever since I was in middle school. I have been on birth control, many other prescription drugs, and medications from my dermatologist but nothing seemed to completely clear my acne. I am at the age where it is definitely not hormonal anymore. Francine focuses more on the ingredients of the product, which I love. She tells me straight up and doesn't ever try to sell me on unnecessary products. I also love how every thing she uses is completely natural. I really notice a difference in my skin from this shift of using chemical-heavy products to all natural ingredients. I have learned so much from her. You can tell she truly cares about her customers and provides a routine that is specific for you and your skin! Highly recommend!! She is the sweetest.
Francine has seriously changed my life! I've struggled with acne since I was a teenager. Then when I turned 20 I struggled with hormonal and cystic acne, it was painful! On top of that I developed fungal acne that would come and go and it just felt like it was never ending. I felt hopeless because I literally tried EVERYTHING and nothing worked. Until one day I just remember looking for an esthetician on Google and I'm so thankful to this day that I came across Francine because she has seriously changed my life. Not only did she explain the problems with my skin and how food (our gut) has a lot to do with healthy skin! I've learned so much from her and with every visit my skin only gets better and better. I can say today that Francine has helped me clear all my acne and is now helping me fade away my acne scars which is the only thing that's left, but my dream of one day having acne free, beautiful healthy and glowy skin is almost here I can feel it! That being said, I'm so so grateful for Francine and everything she does, she's super passionate about what she does and she's the sweetest person I've ever come across to in my life
Over the last year, I have been trusting my facial skin care to the expertise of esthetician, Francine Panelli, at the Beauty Pro. I am totally over the moon with the improvement in my skin. My skin is brighter, clearer and younger looking because of her care. Some sun damaged spots have even disappeared. Francine listens to her clients creates an individualized skin care plan to get them the results they want. At each visit, she gently reminds me of the importance of my own home skin care routine, which I find helpful. With Francine, I feel as if I have a partner helping me to have the best skin possible. Because of her, there are days that I don't wear any makeup and feel absolutely fine without it. This is a new feeling for me. In addition to her professionalism, she is warm, pleasant and a loving individual. I highly recommend her.
Achievement unlocked: glowing skin thanks to lovely skincare guru Francine Panelli. Highly recommended for a relaxing and effective facial treatment! Francine really knows her stuff and I found my facial to be full of educational moments. She really takes care of your skin and highlights the important ingredients to look for in skincare! I already booked my next appointment with her because my face deserves the best.
Francine is truly the most knowledgeable and passionate esthetician around. Her background in the sciences, passion for healthy skin, and desire for confident clients shines in her approach. My experience was nothing short of amazing. She took the time to get to know me, my skin, and explain the science behind my skin and skincare based on her research and in-depth education. What I loved most about my facial experience was her attentiveness to my needs and commitment to finding solutions to all my concerns. She not only is incredibly intelligent, which immediately makes you trust her. She welcomes you in with such kindness and really helps you feel comfortable no matter what condition your skin is in. I am proud to say I have found my go-to gal. Francine is qualified and capable of transforming your skin and helping you feel and look the best version of yourself.

I think it's important to have someone you can relate to when you're seeking out beauty advice. Whether it's hair, makeup or help with your skin. Because it's such a personal experience, having someone you feel comfortable with and who you can confide in is important. Francine provides for all of this and more: she's down-to-earth, approachable, and kind-heated. She's also trained to provide the best results possible. After my first appointment, my skin felt revived and clarified, so much so that my boyfriend noticed the difference! I had two additional appointments, which led me to confide about a small itch on my eyelid (now gone, after I finally contacted my doctor), and my lack of a sunscreen (Francine provided me with a sample -- which I have now been applying on a daily basis). Give Francine a try, she's committed in providing the best care for any minor or long-term skin condition.
This is my second facial with Francine at The Beauty Pro and I'm extremely satisfied with the results and the entire experience. After spending thousands of dollars, constantly trying out new estheticians around San Francisco and being disappointed due to technique, lack of cleanliness of the place, professionalism, price, or personality, I've finally found what I've been looking for at The Beauty Pro. Francine is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, with a ton of experience behind her having worked with top notch plastic surgeons and dermatologists in San Francisco. My skin is susceptible to dark spots and unevenness and I still love to sit in the sun occasionally. After just two treatments here and a few well-priced essential products suited for my issues-my skin is evening out and looking smooth and radiant. BTW: I asked for a day and night moisturizer and sun protection product. Francine never asked or pressured me about products whatsoever! That's important to me because I HATE it when products are pushed. That doesn't happen here. She even did facial steaming. I feel look and feel younger. Impressive. Her gentle head-neck massage put me to sleep. The best part is that her advice has stuck with me and I'm actually following a decent care schedule now in between commuting and hard core exercising. I'll continue going to The Beauty Pro because she's fairly priced and doesn't cost me a fortune like other similar places, even though she's located on Union Street. I am even sending my daughter to her to learn how to take care of her young skin and to avoid the kind of skin damage I've allowed myself to incur.
Over the past few years my skin has been a source of stress in my life. Adult acne, dryness, and dullness have plagued my reflection every day. And then COVID hit and HELLO maskne! I was desperate to find relief when I stumbled upon The Beauty Pro. From the moment I connected with Francine, I knew I found the TLC my skin needed. Francine spent so much time getting to know ME and MY skin journey. After multiple FaceTimes she identified what was causing my skin to act out, educated me on the the dos and don'ts of maintaining healthy skin, and created a simple, comprehensive routine to rebalance my aggravated skin. My first treatment in her studio was an added bonus to the entire experience. I can't recommend Francine enough! Run, don't walk, to her for your skincare needs!
Recommended for clients with ACNE!! Francine did an amazing job transforming my skin. I experience hormonal acne along my jawline, deep cystic acne on the cheeks and loads of post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation. Francine is very knowledgable about treating acne, she's vocal about what procedure she'll perform and WHY the procedure helps the skin. Each time we meet, my skin is improving so much! There are less papules and pustules, the texture of my skin is a lot smoother and best of all, my skin is glowing like I've never seen...
To put it simply... Francine is the Best of the Best! After 4 months that began with a facial and analysis of my skin Francine has helped me look and feel my very best! Her knowledge of clinical skin treatments, technology and products is tremendous! I also like how she educates you on why she chose the skin treatment she is giving you... I'm thrilled that Francine has become a big part in treating and educating me to having healthier skin!
OMG!! Huge difference!! I am alive and my skin glows. Yes my skin just feels young!! Especially without foundation and no photoshopping done!! Love the serum. I can feel the difference. I love my skin now and just feel so confident thanks to your guidance and advice!
I was here today and it was a beautiful, relaxing, wonderful experience. I am the type of person that can be stressed even while getting a facial - and I was relaxed and trusting and that is really saying something!! I had not a care in the world while Francine Panelli worked her magic in me!! We had steam, cream, a creamy mask, warm steamy towels, and face and shoulder massage with the gentleness of a butterfly and the most glorious scents - and don't worry - if no scents is your thing, you have a choice - also I was asked about allergies and so I was confident that I was in good hands!! Literally! I finally feel like my skin is cared for - can't wait to come back to Francine again - and again... Union Street has a wonderful new addition!!! A Gem.
