skin care clinic


As a premier skin care clinic and boutique spa in Charlotte, North Carolina, we are dedicated to bring tranquility and well-being to our guests. Experience an array of beauty and wellness treatments in an elegant, restful environment.


Established in 1995 and still in its original location, we are located between the beautiful neighborhoods of Elizabeth and Myers Park, right in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina. We are minutes away from uptown, Novant Health Presbyterian Health Center, and SouthPark. A visit to our Charlotte Boutique Spa is a convenient escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.


Palestra’s European owners, Hanneke van der Molen and Sharon Thonissen are accredited by the international standards of CIDESCO. Our staff is trained in the finer European facial and massage techniques and specialize in many skin care and body work modalities. As a result, spa treatments are tailored to address the particular concerns of each individual and to bring out natural radiance.


Our skin care clinic treatment menu features traditional spa services for face and body, including European Classical Facial, peels, waxing, lash tinting, eyelash extensions, make-up, body massages, exfoliation, and technologically advanced procedures, such as LED-light therapy, microcurrent for anti-aging, ultrasonic microdermabrasion for exfoliation, and skin tag removal.

We also feature an exclusive spa treatment, the Secrets Facial and Body Ritual, to awaken the senses.

Indulge in services and products from around the world, such as the Orient Essence and Hanakasumi or Luk Pra Kob, a Thai herbal compress treatment.

Preliminary and post-surgery services are also offered in our skin care clinic to make the most of the medical procedure you have carefully chosen and speed the healing process.

At our Express Spa Lounge we feature a menu of mini escapes and other small budget-friendly services to facilitate guests with time constraints. These services include a quick pore cleanse, waxing,  and more.

We offer the world’s best and most sought after skin care lines. Sothys and Murad are used in esthetic services and offered for sale in our retail shop, so our clients can continue to achieve full benefits at home.

We invite you to experience our sophisticated skin care clinic and services in a celebrated place of relaxation and well-being.
