I enjoyed myself here for my birthday gift, it was my first time here and the design of this place is gorgeous. My only complaint is I wish I was throughly guided through my 3 hour spa experience. My first stop was the Bochka steam room and the guy(who was very nice) that was helping me his english was not good so he could barely communicate how the Bochka worked . He was offering other things for me but I could barely understand so I said no. Other than that my massage was awesome, my foot massage in the salt room was good too and I think I went to sleep snoring until a therapist came with her keys making noise looking for something I thought that was rude and she woke up me. But I hope to come back soon.

this place was amazing!! I had an appointment at 6 and called saying I would be late bc something had come up and I ended up showing up at 7:30. they were super sweet and helped me, there was no nasty attitudes or anything. I really appreciate them helping me last minute and I would definitely recommend this place (I got a spray tan). the spa itself is very nice and clean. 10/10 for sure!

Aria Med Spa is like heaven on earth! Valeria and her staff are first rate, very professional, and exceedingly accommodating. Valeria gave my spouse and I much more that we expected.You will feel like you died and went to heaven! If you like being pampered and treated like class this is the place to go. I recommend Aria Med Spa very highly. Bring your spouse, tell a friend, just get here soon. You won't regret it.

I went here because I bought a groupon. I got a Swedish massage by Elliot and I LOVED it. He was just fantastic. I highly recommend him. It's a bit expensive without a groupon but it's worth it. The facilities are really clean. They give you a robe and slippers. They have a nice waiting room with tea and water. The massage beds are nice and warm. And Elliot used aroma therapy and that smelled so nice. And he placed wet warm towels on me that felt nice. Overall a great experience.

Aria MediSpa is spectacular. I have nothing but great things to say about their care and customer service. I compare all other establishments and or massages to them and nothing compares. I started going because I got a Groupon and I have been hooked ever sense.
They have amazing specials on their website. I got a buy one get one free massage. Score!
They have expanded their establishment and added on many more spa areas. I am looking forward to trying them. The establishment is so calming and absolutely beautiful.
I have had several massages and a facial and I have always received the best care. I look forward to going back again and again and again. Thank you Aria MediSpa!
Vero B. Sterling, VA
One of my best facials. Elena is excellent and uses top of the line products. I enjoyed every second of the facial and my face feels so clean and refreshed. I highly recommend this location at least for facials and definitely request Elena. The Spa is very nice and clean. The provide ropes and a locker room to leave your things secure and take a shower afterwards. Not many Spa offer such amenities. They also have a waiting area that is really nice and relaxing with delicious tea or lemon/lime water. Perfect for in between services. I definitely enjoyed my visit and facial at Aria. I plan to go back and try their massages and body services.
Megan L Baltimore, MD
Had the best facial I have ever had today at this salon. The products used on me were amazing and I know they were above and beyond what spas normally use. Highly recommend this place!
Kharma F. Washington, DC
Perfect!.....from making the appointment till we (my husband and I) walked out the door, just perfect. Very courteous staff and the services offered were great. Ernesto is the best! His title should be magician!! Had a wonderful facial which was one of the most relaxing things I've done in all my life - Eliana gives a great consultation and really takes care of the skin. It's a bit of a trek for me coming from DC for spa services but I WILL be back!!
Paige W. Sterling, VA
It all started with a Groupon, and now I can't stop going! I originally bought the Groupon Massage spa package, which led me to their website. Although I bought my Groupon first, I used it last. Let me explain:
When I went on the website to find out there hours, I saw they had some specials going on. One in particular stood out to me, one hour Swedish massage for $65, so I bought two, booked an appointment for that weekend and surprised them! They came back so relaxed and so happy!! And my mom could not stop talking about how great Ernesto's massage was.
So I went back on their website and found a couples deal for my boyfriend and I for his birthday. Booked it for the next week, they squeezed me in to an evening appointment to fit with my busy schedule, and the experience was amazing! I made sure to have Ernesto for my massage and WOW, he is everything you would want, kind, informative, and always making sure you are comfortable and relaxes! As for the spa itself: Everything is so clean, they keep you on schedule but never rush you or take time away from your appointments, the staff is so friendly and accommodating, and my over all experience was fantastic!!! My boyfriend loved the experience and thought it was perfect. And before we got our massages we were offered to go into the cryogenic machine to test it, my boyfriend got to go but I never got the chance. I was told that the next time I came in, I would get to try it but I forgot to mention it when booking my groupon!
Finally, last week I used my Groupon. I made sure to book Ernesto again for my massage and he made all my troubles melt away! This place is truly just fantastic, stop reading Yelp reviews and book an appointment already!! Needless to say, I plan on coming back and becoming a regular.

I originally tried Aria Medispa through a Groupon deal. I've now been back again and have an appointment this afternoon! I have never seen such great results! I joked that I couldn't answer my friend's phone call because I was too busy looking at myself in the mirror! She's convinced and also has an appointment for the ultra peel. I'm hooked.
Colleen S. Ashburn, VA
Every interaction I had at this spa was so pleasant and professional. When I initially called to make an appointment, the nice receptionist talked me through all their different services and even helped me to get a better discount by going with one of their packages rather than just picking single services. Once you're there, it's very clean and tranquil. I received a sugar scrub and facial during my visit, very relaxing! I felt very comfortable the whole time I was there and all the employees were very knowledgeable and open to questions. I walked away with a relaxed demeanor, smooth skin, and some nice PCA skin products. Definitely will be visiting again!
Natalia D. Rockville, MD
I got permanent make-up for my eyebrows and eyeliner at Aria MediSpa recently.
Valeria did a wonderful job. She explaining the treatment to me in great detail. She also suggested the color and shape that are suitable for my face. Valeria did a very professional work and spent a lot of time to make me happy. I love both results the eyebrows and the eyes. I'm considering getting permanent make-up for my lips. It's really nice not to have to worry about doing your makeup every morning J
I definitely recommend Valeria as your permanent make-up artist.
Linda C. Leesburg, VA
I decided to throw out the New Years resolutions and start off the New Year with New life resolutions. Small steps to improve my overall health and brighten my outlook on the coming of Spring. With this said, I started at Aria MediSpa for a day of speciality treatments. AMAZING! Every moment of my experience was met with a warm, friendly, knowledgeable and professional individual. I had a message, Venik sauna treatment and facial. Top it off with a glass of champagne and I felt the years and tension in my lower back slipping away.
Aria MedSpa is now my go to for all of my spa needs. With professional customer services, amazing and customized treatment plans and, of course, Groupon specials, there is no reason not to treat yourself.
Jennifer M. Sterling, VA
Aria's entrance is through the parking lot next to the Countryside McDonalds. It is part of a medical office building and has a new/clean/clinical doctors feeling (medi-spa. get it?).
I always go to Navan for my facials here. She knows her stuff and can recommend great treatments for my skin type. You'll receive the most thorough extractions you've ever had in your life from her. You're getting the help that you're paying for -- don't be afraid of a little pain. But also do speak up if you tend to scar easily in certain spots. I think I developed 2-3 new permanent blood spots.
My skin has been doing much better since I've been going for regular facials. I've been busy but have been meaning to schedule a chemical peel with her next time I get a break from work.
The clock starts as soon as you enter the room, not when they start your treatment on the table. So show up early / on time! If anything goes wrong (like your specialist doesn't show up), they'll admit their faults and make it up to you. I really appreciate that instead of making excuses like some people will.
Stephanie B. Chantilly, VA
I love this MediSpa!! I have had several services done here. I first began going with a special for a spa day for two, which I bought as a Mother's Day present for my mom. She ended up getting stuck in traffic as she doesn't live in state, so Aria not only did not charge me a cancellation fee, but also let me use that credit towards another service in the future. Great customer service!
I used my credit to get a facial with Zula, who is amazing. She really knows her stuff. She has recommended many products to me, all of which have been fabulous.
I then bought a laser hair removal package for my legs and bikini line. Their specials for laser hair removal are AWESOME! You will not find anywhere cheaper. They have the latest technology and knowledgable staff performing the service. I just finished my legs and they are pretty much hair-free!
There are so many services I plan to get in the future. I seriously love this place!
D'Arcy S. Fairfax, VA
I've had laser hair removal before at a fancy spa in Georgetown, but it really never fully got rid of the hair on my underarms. After that, I was sort of skeptical of the whole procedure, given that I'm very pale with dark brown hair and thus the poster child for laser hair removal. I recently did a bit of research on the lasers, and turns out that maybe my first experience wasn't as successful as I wanted because of a weak laser. I bought a groupon for 6 treatments for my underarms here after my boyfriend had a super successful session on his back, and I have zero regrets. My underarm hair has not grown back and I've only had one session! I'm down to shaving once a week, and that's really only for the 1 or 2 hairs that grow in. The lady who does it is fast and effective. The spa is clean and friendly. The staff overall gets an A+. I wouldn't recommend going ANYWHERE else for laser hair removal. You'll get actual results here.

Ive been to spa's many times. I received a spa Package from Aria as a gift from a friend who thought because I worked so much overnight and it was my birthday that I needed to be pampered. I didn't know where I was going. I arrive the the staff was so nice. After completing a little short survey about myself went back. To make a long story short my package included champagne, cheeses, chocolate, chocolate body wrap, sauna w honey, i think i recieved two massages the treatment was so good. Lol i also received a facial scrub and detoxing. I loved it the staff made sure you were comfortable from start to finish. I believe i was pampered for like 5hrs .Also they have really good deals on their website and also
groupon.I would recommend this place as a nice gift.
Munazza C. Ashburn, VA
I booked my appointment over the phone with aria medispa for my laser treatment and from the begining the experience was excellent. The receptionist was very friendly and knowledgeable. When I arrived at the spa it is very beautiful and the ambiance is perfect for a high end spa. The wait time was not bad at all and the technician was very nice. She made me feel comfortable and offered various solutions for my skin problems. I didn't felt any sale pressure. All in all it was great experience and would definitely recommend it to all my friends.

This my second visit to Aria medispa. The first time, I got a surprise from my fiance for the Couples Massage package. We both had a great time, and I definitely wanted to go back. For my second visit last Saturday, I got the Anniversary spa package for 145$, which included body scrub, massage, body wrap and a facial with LED treatment. When I was buying the deal over phone, I was told that I could opt for a acne facial. But in my reminder email, it still says Seasonal facial, and I was asked to pay 50$ extra if I wanted an acne facial. I settled for the seasonal facial as I was pretty sure it will be good.
I did not want the Venik treatment and the receptionist readily swapped it with the Bochka treatment.
During my session, I was received very well by the receptionist and was immediately directed to Autumn, who did my Bochka treatment, and body massage. She was very diligent and knows what she is doing. She was extra attentive towards my problem areas during my massage session.
Felt heavenly after my massage. I was offered a fruit platter, with hot tea and champagne. Very calming!!!Then came my facial session with some Asian lady. She was a master Esthetician, and I was very excited about the session, but was utterly disappointed. She was very rough in the way she handled my face. I have very sensitive skin and the lady kept scrubbing my face with a towel/sponge. The scalp massage was OK. I have a breakout today...dang!!!z
Although, she had some good input regarding different acne masks/facials and treatments, I would not have another session with her. I was not given an LED treatment which was included in the package.The facial was followed the body scrub and body wrap, with Autumn, which were great.
My skin was soft and glowing when I got out. The foot massage during the body wrap session was great, very relaxing. Aria has become my got-to spa and I would definitely go back. I already recommended this place to my friends...
Adam W. Ashburn VA
I am just so impressed with Aria Medispa!! I have been going there since it opened last summer in 2013 and all of my appointments were very positive and pleasant experiences. This is a very nice, clean and modern environment to really relax and enjoy being away from the riff-raff of our busy lives that we live in.
All of the staff are very friendly and attentive to my needs. They are all consummate professionals who really care about you and all their clients. I was so relaxed that I will do it again in the near future. I have tried most of their services that they offer and I think all of them are my favorite.
I am going to try something new on my next visit and it is called the Moroccan Breeze Day Spa. I cannot wait. I used to usually do just massages and scrubs and never thought that I would do half day spas and so on but now I just love going to the spa to just escape life even if it is just for a few hours. I highly recommend this establishment for all your Spa needs.
Cassandra T. Woodbridge, VA
I found out about this particular spa through Groupon a few months back and I'm so glad I bought the facial/chemical peel package. It was easy to schedule the appointment to my convenience and the price was perfect, I even added a mask just because I loved the place. I have since been back and even though it was months since my first time, Navan (the master esthetician) still remembered me! She is so nice and has the best skin! I drive an hour and ten minutes just to go to this particular spa and I tell everyone I know about it! Absolutely love it!
Demetria S. Glenarden, MD
I LOVE this place. I came here in March/April of 2014 for the Signature Spa package. Everybody was amazing, from check in to check out. This is my new go to spa for ALL services.
FYI: I am very picky when it comes to facials and Valeria (sp) was AMAZING.
Denise O. Sterling, VA
I have been going to Aria Spa for the last three months, however, let me tell you about my Moroccan Day relaxation yesterday! It was an amazing 4.5 plus hours of extreme relaxation and pampering! First, Zula gave me an incredible facial! My face looked fantastic this morning and well moisturized. I am looking forward to scheduling a chem peel in the next couple of weeks. Then I was greeted by Tosha who gave me an hour swedish massage and the Moroccan body scrub which included a scalp massage and wash! Part of the Moroccan Day experience was sitting in the Botchka for 25 minutes or so. By the time I left Aria MediSpa I was very relaxed and felt like a million bucks! This spa is great little oasis in Sterling! This was a much needed day of relaxation after my two weeks of travel due to my job. :-)
Steven S. Vienna, VA.
This is hands down the best spa in Sterling!
I'm someone who's no stranger to the stress that comes from a fast paced city life. We work, shop, party, entertain and try to keep up with our changing environment. So how are we supposed to relax and wind down? That's where ARIA MediSpa comes in. I can honestly say this is the best spa in Northern Virginia as I believe it’s the little things that make a spa amazing.
When you first walk in, it's like stepping into a different world. It's cool and relaxing, and the staff is helpful and unceasingly friendly. It was my first time there, so I was shown where to change into my cushy robe, offered tea and a trip to the sauna, which was right in the locker room if I wanted. The lounge was warm and relaxing with comfortable chairs that I just wanted to curl up next to and nap. Just a beautiful atmosphere that made me feels extremely comfortable.
Within minutes I met my therapist, Sara, and was led to the treatment room. I immediately noticed how gorgeous the beds were; leaves fanned across the soft blankets. There was much attention to detail that made it extremly inviting. And the massage... WOW! I have extremely tense muscles that require a lot of work and before he was even done I could feel the stress leaving my body. His technique offered the perfect amount of pressure and balanced movements so it was effective AND soothing. All my concerns were addressed and he went above and beyond, instructing me on stretches to relieve my specific muscle tension.
I was in a bit of a rush as I was leaving, but still noted all the amenities they offered in the women's room from cold water with lemon slices to products that I didn't expect.
Mandy M. Potomac Falls, VA
I highly recommend Aria MediSpa! I have tried several spas in the Northern Virginia area, but none have been better than my visit to Aria. Upon walking in, I was greeted with a warm smile and a soft ambiance, which immediately made me feel calm. I was offered a drink and food while I completed the necessary paperwork. Everything was impeccably timed. I went with my sister and while she was changing they provided a complimentary wait in the sauna to help soothe my muscles before my facial and massage.
Each member of the staff was extremely nice, professional, and attentive, not conceited and pompous like many other spas. Valeria, my esthetician, was thorough in applying the appropriate cleansers, masks, and moisturizers. As she positioned a steam nozzle over my face, she provided recommendations and massaged the remaining ingredients to complete the facial.
After my facial, I was guided to the waiting room where I enjoyed sipping wine, light snacks, and reading material. Just as I flipped to the second page, Val (Valery), my masseuse escorted me to the massage room. The aromatherapy massage was both relaxing and therapeutic. His long, firm strokes during the full body massage nearly put me to sleep on the plush bed. While each product seeped in, my neck, arms, back, and feet were treated to hot steamed towels and light massaging. Val gives one last rub on my scalp after finishing the back and front of the full body massage, and we're done.
Once I arrived at the reception desk, products had been pulled for me but there was no pressure to purchase. I was so pleased with my experience, I have already scheduled my next session. Aria MediSpa got everything right and I will not be going anywhere else for my spa treatments!
Monica B. Leesburg, VA
Love this place! Staff was super friendly, very helpful and did everything just right. I purchased a spa package and then went back for a facial. I seriously felt like a million bucks walking out of there the first time. My second time was just as amazing. I will be back for other services
Stephanie G. Rectortown, VA
Through the Aria Medispa glass door to an island of calm and serenity. The attentive staff smoothes any problems with seamless anticipation. Each and every staff person I encountered sincerely cared that I was doing well from the receptionist who greet me and offer tea and coffee, to the massage therapist and aesthetician who stayed longer with me to make sure that job is done properly. The 3 women with whom I bonded during the day spa came from all over the US and one from Europe- all different yet all succumbed to the magic of the "ARIA". The organic scrub and mask produced from natural fruit, grown in Hungary innovatively prepare by company call Eminence. I enjoyed the feeling of mysticism around the labyrinth and felt that it answered some feelings of self - doubt I harbored on past decisions. I can see why so many guests returning back to this Spa as I will from now on. My close friend who came with me feels the same.
MARY S. Ashburn, VA
Wow! What a day! My boyfriend surprised me with the "All Day" package. I had a sugar scrub, body wrab, massage, facial and last the Bushka! I think that's how it's spelled. Basically it is a sauna for 20 minutes. The place is very clean, beautifully decorated and the staff was excellent! They did a really great job with each service and were sooo nice throughout! They provided us champagne, hot tea and fruit before we left. The Russian esthetician gave me a mini tour and told me their additional Russian sauna experience that starts with a V. Can't remember the name. Seemed really cool though. We will probably come once a quarter and do this all over again! Love this place!
Marsha P. Great Falls, VA
Aria Medispa is an amazing place. They're open last year and the spa looks gorgeous! Add to that the fantastic location Dulles Town Center Mall and Country Side blvd. and you'll feel like a million bucks coming and going here. I've never had trouble parking in the area.. If you need a snack before your treatment, stop by the Starbucks on the corner.
One thing I didn't even know to ask about when visiting a MedISpa was the quality of the equipment: Aria MediSpa uses the top-of-the-line laser for laser hair removal, which really helps with the pain of the procedure (which isn't that bad). I've also had an eMatrix facial (they have a great deal running right now that made it barely more expensive than an ordinary facial ... and the results are stunning), skin analysis, and botox. Everyone at the spa is well trained, completely professional, and super friendly and nice. I HIGHLY recommend ARIA Medispa! The woman at the front desk Kaur was extremely nice as I was leaving, giving me Aria card, on which he had written a friendly note and product recommendations. They showed me the products but were in no way pushy which I really appreciated. I got to peruse my options freely to make my own decisions.
This really is one of the best spas in Sterling and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a break from life with people who honestly care about making you feel your best.

Today I had my last touch-up laser treatment in my "save my face" journey with Valeria at Aria Medispa. I was shown before and after pictures of my face....my jaw dropped! Simply AMAZING results!! I see myself every day and obviously didn't notice the differences during my 6 month experience. Having never had a facial in my over 4 decades of life (...yes, that is over 40...) and having skin that leaves a mark for months after a scratch, blemish or boo-boo, I was incredibly nervous to start the recommended chemical peel and laser process last September. After seeing these results, and friends commenting on how great my skin looks, I am only regretting not having it done sooner in life. The pregnancy mask.... gone; the sun spots...gone.....; the wrinkles.....mostly gone. :) I feel better and, humbly stated, I look better!! I was so sad when Valeria said she looked forward to seeing my in the Fall for any peels I was interested in. I will miss her until then, but will be back to Aria MediSpa beforehand because the Venik and massages are calling my name.As a side note, I looked through the reviews for Aria MediSpa this afternoon. Clients are coming from all over the NOVA area, DC and Maryland. This is a true testament to their service and services.
This spa is wonderful, I had a deep clean facial with Valeria, and she is amazing!!! She is very professional who really loves her job. I have the venik sauna treatment with Nathalia, it was a new experience for me, and it was a joy. I would definitely go back again... Great place to relax
Ingrid L. Arlington, VA
Thoroughly loved my spa treatments, I FINALLY found my go to spot in the area. The massage therapist (I think her name was Natasha) was very professional and really made me relaxed during the massage, body scrub and body polish. I cant wait to go back. This place is amazing!!!!!

Lia T., Potomac Falls, VA
I recently received laser hair removal from Valeria. She made me feel incredibly comfortable, was very knowledgeable about the machinery, and provided fun conversation during the treatment so I barely felt a thing. After one treatment, I already see results!
Valeria is amazing, and I am beyond excited to have found her impressive. Extremely detail oriented and never in a rush, she knows how to take care of clients. Her work is flawless and natural. She has a way of making you feel so comfortable and stress free.
The very best past of Valeria's practice is how she makes you feel as if you're her only client - clearly, her business is booming and I'm lucky to nab an appointment with her, but when I'm in her Medi spa, it feels like I'm an A-lister. Their laser products are top of the line, painless and effective. Literally no pain at all and was such a quick experience... and their prices are reasonable - they have a great promotions going on.... Great quality and extremely affordable!
This is the place to get laser hair removal - without question! Go on ... make an appointment tomorrow and GET YOUR BEAUTY ON! Thank you so much Valeria.
I went to this spa today and had an amazing experience!!
Review from Christi C. Reston, VA
I went to this spa today and had an amazing experience!! I had the Venik sauna treatment, an hour massage, and a facial. It was a gift for me and I was very pleasantly surprised, the spa is very nice and clean and there is a relaxation room and a nice private shower area if you need one. I received the Venik sauna treatment with a delightful woman- it was my first time doing this so I had no idea what to expect except for a quick google search but it was a very relaxing and unique experience! The treatment involves a small private sauna, and I had a female for the treatment and there was a small towel that I used to cover my top half for privacy. I noticed that another reviewer had a male and perhaps nothing to cover herself (which I could see why that was uncomfortable), but it seems they addressed that so that says a lot to me about their customer service. I would definitely recommend for this to ask for a small towel if it makes you more comfortable, and I know may be TMI but they also have disposable undies in the changing area if you prefer to use them because it is HOT in there and you'll be pretty sweaty from head to toe after an hour.The massage with Tasha was GREAT. She applied very strong pressure and was a joy, I would definitely go back to her!
As part of the gift, it originally came with a chemical peel but I was hesitant to try one. Without any problems, they offered to substitute it with a facial. It was very relaxing and she did a great job with head and should massage.
Overall 5 stars for this spa- they just opened and have some great deals. I would definitely recommend!!
That was too good to refuse:
Review from Angela I. Sterling, VA
I booked this spa via a Groupon special that was too good to refuse: a custom express facial, body scrub, and massage for two for $189- Especially since this spa was located within walking distance of my home.I called to book my appointment on a Thursday, looking for a Saturday appt and figuring the upcoming Saturday would be booked, offered 3 possible Saturdays in the future. At the time, the gentleman on the phone mentioned that they did have availability and I was excited to book for that weekend. I received a text message shortly after my phone call to confirm the appt. Unfortunately, what the gentleman was trying to tell me (there was a bit of an accent that made it slightly difficult to understand via phone) was that while there wasn't availability on the first Saturday, there was for that Sunday. Which had I actually read the text confirmations, I would have seen. Can you tell where this is going?
Fast forward to that Saturday morning, freshly showered and excitedly entering the lovely spa with my girl friend to jump into our spa day. Said gentleman was besides himself for the misunderstanding- which was my fault for not reading the text confirmation fully. While we did have to slink back home that morning, he said that he would add a "surprise" to our package when we returned in 2 weeks time. After arriving, we were led into a changing room. The location is beautifully decorated, serene, and again, literally within walking distance of my home. I would have preferred a longer robe- theirs are half robes that come to the knee. As I am comfortable being fully unclothed during treatments, sitting around in a short robe did leave me feeling slightly exposed.
My first treatment was an express facial with Veera. She was elegant, professional, and very adept at her work- the treatment was so relaxing and thorough that I can't wait to return and enjoy a full offering. She even noticed that I was breaking out on my chest and recommended that I spray my perfume in alternate places to see if this helped clear up the irritation.
Back in the relaxation room (which had plenty of blankets to cover my exposed legs that the robe did not) I enjoyed hot tea. They also offered a dry sauna to warm up in prior to and after treatments if desired.
My next two treatments were administered by Aliana. The first was a body scrub. Now I have had scrubs in the past where you get buffed with a sugar lotion mixture, then washed and lubed up. This was entirely different. THEY MEAN BUSINESS. Using what felt like a pair of shower scrubby gloves, I was dry scrubbed..thoroughly. After, my skin was moistened and then re-scrubbed with the aforementioned exfoliating scrub. It is not for the faint of heart- It is cold. It is scrubbing you to within an inch of your nerves. It is going to set your teeth on edge..BUT.. I WALKED OUT OF THAT SPA HYDROPHOBIC. I was so baby's butt smooth that water sprayed on my body would have beaded and run off. For HOURS after, I found myself rubbing my own legs, astonished at how silky my skin was. So- buyer beware if you are overly sensitive, but I know that I'll be back for that again. I mean, it's nowhere near as extreme as getting your hiney waxed.
After having the top layers of scratchy skin removed, Aliana provided a massage that was probably more spot on that many previous experiences. She specifically asked me where she should focus and what issues I was having. While slight in build, she knows how to use her hands, elbows, and leverage to make sure she gets into tight muscles so that you can TELL you've been masseused.
Once the official spa treatments were complete, I found out what my special extra was: a Siberian Bochka treatment! Conducted by Sasha in the sauna, this had to be one of the more unusual treatments I have ever received. After donning some very haute disposable undies, I laid in the sauna while Sasha stood between me and the heater. He had a huge bouquet of Oak leaves soaking in a bucket that he removed and set aside to slightly dry. After anointing various pressure points with honey (!?) he smacked me with the oak bouquet. Repeatedly. Really.
Noting that it's good for the reduction of cellulite, this aromatic treatment is certainly something everyone should try once. And honestly, the wonderfully, Russian Sasha is a peach to have as a technician. After this last treatment I was presented with a tray of fruit, hot tea, and a glass of wine- but assured by Sasha that traditionally, "Good sauna end with vodka!" 10/10 Would visit again,
TL: DR- Go experience this spa!!
I was treated like a princess!

I was treated like a princess!
I did the day spa which included: body scrub, massage, facial, sauna, and herbal tea treatment, and it was one of the most relaxing days I've had. The staff was very friendly and I bought a couples massage for my parents also. I will definitely be coming here again when I'm in town.
This may be the BEST premier spa in Northern Virginia with a European flair.
Review from Dana P. Woodbridge, VA
This may be the BEST premier spa in Northern Virginia with a European flair. I did my research for spas throughout the DMV, looking for the best birthday gift for myself. After reading numerous reviews, and asking friends, I decided on Aria Medispa. From the moment I walked in, I knew I was in for an extra special treat! I received 5 treatments for the price of 1 which in itself was astonishing (check their Facebook page and Groupon/Living Social for specials). I was greeted by Valeria at the front desk and my French masseuse Val, they were extremely friendly and genuine. I filled out my paperwork and was whisked into Wonderland. Every detail is covered, the spa is beautiful and peacefully decorated; it's warm and inviting. My treatments were all unique and different, leaving me wondering "what's next?". Being a medi-spa, they really focus on the healing and nurturing aspects of what each procedure entails, there is a purpose for everything they are doing. After my relaxing treatments, I was surprised with an elegant silver tray filled with goodies, a glass of red wine and a pot of tea. I was not rushed in any way, and felt right at home. The staff is extremely professional and was at ease during all of my treatments. I felt each and every person I encountered gave me their best and wanted to ensure that I left completely satisfied, and I did. I will continue to tell all of my friends and family about Aria Medispa. I will be back, as I have found my oasis.
I just had a delightful experience at Aria.

I just had a delightful experience at Aria. The massage and scrub with Tasha was divine, and the venik sauna with Sasha was very unusual but extremely refreshing. The spa is amazingly clean and the ambiance is about as serene as it gets. My experience was topped off with some lovely tea and fruit. By that point I was about as relaxed as I could get! I felt like a Queen. The staff was also extremely professional, and the prices were reasonable. I look forward to going back soon!
"Aria MediSpa seems to be brimming with medical specialists" Groupon
Aria MediSpa seems to be brimming with medical specialists, be they plastic surgeons, medical aestheticians, or massage therapists. These experts meander about the facility's oasis-like setting––marked by a glossy floor and avant-garde lamps. A curved, wooden reception desk anchors the lobby, where guests check in with manager Anomi and recline on plush, ivory loveseats. Elsewhere, private rooms host aesthetic treatments such as chemical peels, laser therapies, and injectables. On the other side of the spectrum, massages, sauna sessions, and body scrubs, focus solely on relaxation.
Most Memorable Massage! Zeta Larcon
Took advantage of a full day spa package that included a scrub, massage, sauna, and facial. Staff was very friendly and took great pleasure in spoiling me. The scrub and sauna experiences were quite liberating. Overall came away from this experience feeling detoxified and rejeuvenated. Aria Medi Spa is a must to check out! PS. If you and your group of your pals want to have some services done they'll shut the place down to make it a private event!
Wonderful experience at Aria! Karen Doebel
I recently had my first visit to Aria Medi Spa in Sterling. I say first visit because I will definitely be returning for more treatments! The entire staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Jason showed me around the facility, and they have many specialty services that I have not seen elsewhere. They are happy to answer any questions you have and listen to what you want and need. I had a massage with Tasha which I didn’t ever want to end! I was worried about avoiding pressure on my legs because I have had vein treatment and so they tend to be tender and bruise easily. Tasha listened to what I needed and was very gentle on my legs, so I was able to relax and enjoy the whole massage. I then had a mini facial with Valeria. I have never had a facial before so I don’t really have anything to compare it to, but I LOVED it!! Valeria even massages your neck and it feels great! I had a wonderful experience at Aria and hope to return soon.
Very professional staff and relaxing atmosphere. Adam Warmsbecker
I am just very impressed with Aria Medispa and have been there two times now and they were all very positive and pleasant experiences. They have a very nice, clean and modern environment to really relax. I just had the Organic Seasonal Facial with Valeria. Valeria has perfected her craft and is a consummate professional who really cares about you and all her clients. I was so relaxed that I will do it again in the near future. I also had an Organic Body Scrub with table shower in combination with the Aromatherapy with Essential Oils massage and Sauna with tea and fruit. It can’t get much better than that. I thought I had died and went to heaven. I will definitely be going back. I highly recommend this establishment for all your Spa needs.
"I could not recommend ARIA more highly! " Frank Davingosth
I have been a client a ARIA MediSpa since they opened. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. The services are outstanding and reasonably priced. I very rarely have to wait as they keep appointments on schedule and timely. Valeria has worked with me for skin treatments. She is always readily available for questions, extremely concerned with getting the desired result and client satisfaction. I have also been a patient for Dr. Bruce Freedman for both botox and dermal fillers. Lisa assists him during my treatments. He is very honest and caring and always desires to keep results natural rather than over doing it. Both Valeria and Dr. Freedman are caring and professional and I am always pleased with my results. They are both more than willing to make adjustments if a client is not satisfied, although I have never had to go back for that. They also call after a procedure to make sure you are satisfied with your results, which is rare for most spas. I could not recommend ARIA more highly due to the staff, the relaxing facility and the wonderful staff and service they provide. They truly care about the clientele.
Amazing Experience! Catherine Perry
I went to Aria MediSpa after purchasing a groupon which my friend recommended after I complimented her on how amazing her skin looked. She got a peel from Valeria, I think it was called Aria Signature. So I booked an appointment, got my peel and am so happy! I peeled for a few days but my skin looks so much better. I have had acne problems and just needed some overall refreshment for my skin. I noticed my little acne scars are so much better. I will definitely be back for another treatment in the very near future! At Aria MediSpa the office is really nice, brand new fixtures and equipment, beautiful design. Complimentary coffee and tea and everyone seems really nice there...Highly recommend the peel I got...It didn't even hurt! I'm hooked!

I highly recommend Aria MediSpa! I have tried several spas in the Northern Virginia area, but none have been better than my visit to Aria. Upon walking in, I was greeted with a warm smile and a soft ambiance, which immediately made me feel calm. I was offered a drink and food while I completed the necessary paperwork. Everything was impeccably timed. I went with my sister and while she was changing they provided a complimentary wait in the sauna to help soothe my muscles before my facial and massage. Each member of the staff was extremely nice, professional, and attentive, not conceited and pompous like many other spas. Valeria, my esthetician, was thorough in applying the appropriate cleansers, masks, and moisturizers. As she positioned a steam nozzle over my face, she provided recommendations and massaged the remaining ingredients to complete the facial. After my facial, I was guided to the waiting room where I enjoyed sipping wine, light snacks, and reading material. Just as I flipped to the second page, Val (Valery), my masseuse escorted me to the massage room. The aromatherapy massage was both relaxing and therapeutic. His long, firm strokes during the full body massage nearly put me to sleep on the plush bed. While each product seeped in, my neck, arms, back, and feet were treated to hot steamed towels and light massaging. Val gives one last rub on my scalp after finishing the back and front of the full body massage, and we're done. Once I arrived at the reception desk, products had been pulled for me but there was no pressure to purchase. I was so pleased with my experience, I have already scheduled my next session. Aria MediSpa got everything right and I will not be going anywhere else for my spa treatments!

A slice of heaven in Sterling! I learned about Aria MediSpa through an internet advertisement and WHAT A FIND! On a whim, I decided to pop in to see what it was all about. Aria has a calm and simplistic, unassuming atmosphere. Jacob provided me with a thorough tour and information on the services provided- such a nice guy. Outside of the chemical/skin treatments offered, they also provide massage and aromatherapy services. I met master esthetician, Valeria, who put me at ease regarding the chemical peel process (having never received one before). I scheduled the start of my treatment for later this month, and also made an appointment for a massage which I received yesterday. To my delight, I also received a Russian Venik Sauna with Herbal Treatment...what a unique and wonderful experience! When I was done, I enjoyed some tea and quiet time in the relaxation room. Val, the massage therapist, greeted me and asked me how I was doing as we walked into the aroma-scented, inviting treatment room. I responded, "stressed." He asked about any special concerns and I enjoyed the next 30 minutes of stress relief. He is a magician! As I said goodbye to those at the front desk I recall saying, "I am so happy!" I am looking forward to my appointment with Valeria later this month.

"This was one of the best spa experiences I have had in a long time and I go often. The ladies were warm and inviting, they answered any questions I had and the services were both unique and familiar. The ambience is wonderful, the sauna is superb, it is owned by Russians and they have brought their own unique set of services and I felt like a million bucks after! I am going to sleep like 2 well-fed babies tonight and I have already made my next appointment. Absolutely worth every dime!"
"Highly professional and exuberant team- such a delightful and invigorating experience.”
"Wonderful professional international spa! Will absolutely go again..." Teri Fortier
I received a free massage offer when Aria first opened and happily booked it. When I walked in I was pleasantly surprised. Its a lovely place and everyone was very friendly, and then my masseuse walked out and I was surprised again, he had been at Spa Noa, I had been to him before and he's AMAZING-Yan I think is his name. The spa has lots of services and specials and is very clean-I highly recommend this place-the receptionist was so nice and helpful. I was very glad I took the offer!

I had an AMAZING afternoon at Aria MediSpa. My husband treated me to a whole spa package for my birthday and every service I received was 5 star. The décor of the spa puts you into the relaxing mode, it is very luxurious looking as well. The body scrub, massage, herbal sauna treatment, and facial were all unforgettable, I will be returning soon and will have a girls spa day next time with my friends because they have great referral promotions.
I just had an amazing facial and chemical peel with Valeria. It was very relaxing and she let me know what skin treatments she advised with no pressure. The chemical peel was great. Valeria was able to steer me towards the one treatment was just right for my skin type. I have already booked my next treatment and look forward to going back!

"Loved it!!! I'll definitely be back. Everyone was very friendly and I felt like I was a part of the family. I highly recommend Aria!"
Lori P. Bernardsville, NJ
Had a great experience today. Spa was lovely and very clean. Staff was wonderful and the receptionist was extremely helpful. I had a massage, body scrub, Venik and facial. I would highly recommend.
Virginia E. Falls Church, VA
I took my boyfriend to the MediSpa last night for his birthday and we both had a fantastic experience! Anomi who is the manager was so kind and helpful from beginning to end. My boyfriend and I used the package deal that we saw on Living Social and received a 45 minute body scrub and 45 minute massage. Since my boyfriend did not want to try the Venik Sauna, Valeria treated him to a complimentary facial. I tried the Russian Venik Sauna after my massage and boy was it an experience! My boyfriend really missed out! It was probably my most favorite out of the package deal! We were treated sooo well by all members of the staff. Val and June were both so attentive to my body and my boyfriends'. Sasha also blessed me with the Venik massage experience. I highly recommend this location! No complaints whatsoever. They even provided cookies, fruit, wine and tea afterwards.

I just got home from Aria Medispa and I just had to get on here to review it!! I found a deal for this place and scheduled a 90 minute massage. For starters Anomi at the front desk is super friendly and helpful. When it was my time to go back I was greeted by Tasha who showed me the changing room then led me to the sauna where she asked me questions about the massage. She left me to sit in the sauna for 5 more minutes to relax and get my muscles ready for the massage. I was then taken to the massage room where the heated table waited! As soon as she started I already knew this was going to be a great experience, but I left there after the BEST massage I've EVER had! She worked on my neck and shoulders a lot but not so much that I left barely able to move (has happened!) She also included a scalp, face, and foot massage which is a major plus!! Needless to say this place is definitely my new favorite and I'm already looking forward to going back!!
