Worth the visit?Kimberly S. ★★★★★ Just had an amazing relaxation massage. Can’t wait to schedule another one!! Feel sooooo relaxed!!!!Jennifer C. ★★★★★ Had an amazing experience this morning at the Saratoga location. Barb the spa attendant is so lovely and took good care of me. I had a therapeutic massage with Susan and it was amazing; if you’re looking for a results driven massage, Susan and this massage is it. I will be back for another therapeutic massage with Susan in March!Alessandra B. ★★★★★ I Had a wonderful day of relaxation at Complexions. My friend and I both had massages and utilized the other spa amenities. Laura, who I worked with, was amazing! I booked the therapeutic massage because I wanted more deep tissue work and I was very pleased. Her energy is incredible as well. We enjoyed the sauna and the relaxation room as well, 100% recommend if you are looking for some decompression from reality.Mary G. ★★★★★ I have always enjoyed my massages at Complexions. I highly recommended the spa to my daughter for her wedding day manicure. Her appointment was on Oct.15th, @ 8 am. She booked her appointment three months in advance since she lives out of the country. Upon arriving, she was told her manicurist was not at work. Complexions called in a replacement who also couldn’t come into work. It wasn’t until a third phone call that they were able to reach someone to come in and do her wedding nails. They told her she could wait inside the relaxation lounge because the new manicurist would take 45 minutes to arrive. This resulted in her having to wait even longer for her appointment! This is absolute nonsense of a business of this caliber. Finally, she received her treatment and was given a very small percentage off the cost! She should have been given the manicure for free due to them not having adequate staff, increasing her stress level and making her late now for her other appointments in the day to prepare for her wedding. A manager never reached out to her so I am writing this review on her behalf since she has returned home overseas. Complexions customer service was a zero on a day that should have made a bride 100% relaxed and happy. Denise, you can do better than that! Very dissatisfied customer!Valerie A. ★★★★★ I've been seeing Anthony for massages for quite a while. He's amazing! I highly recommend him if you're full of knots like me. He finds them ALL and you leave feeling so much better. I'm really grateful I found him!Tyler A. ★★★★★ Amazing massage very nice jobDe A. ★★★★★ Complexions is hands down the BEST spa in the Capital District!

Highly Recommend Rae and Angel , I will definately be back for future massages and facials 5 stars across the board ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Alissa A. ★★★★★ The service was amazing. I went for the first time and got a mani/pedi, 1 hr massage, and facial. Everyone was very professional and the service was stunning. A true day of being pampered.Michelle L. ★★★★★ Thank you to Ashley R for starting my Birthday off COMPLETELY RELAXED! My first time ever having a massage, was wonderful.

Planned a ninety minute soak/massage...stayed four hours enjoying the rest of the facilities;))Michele Lamont J. ★★★★★ Went back to Complexions today after some time away. Such a relaxing day that I love treating myself to from time to time. Always have a great experience with Angel (esthetician) and Susan (massage therapist), but today I found a new favorite in Kevin. He gave me an amazing therapeutic massage that reminded me of how great I felt after my first ever massage. He was very skilled and talented at his craft, and kind too. The only stress I anticipate is in choosing which great therapist to book for which amazing service next time around.Angelina R. ★★★★★ I really enjoyed my visit at Complexions spa!
