Bella Schneider takes the science of skincare seriously. Starting in 1976, when she opened her first LaBelle Day Spa & Salon, Bella emerged as a clinical skincare leader, advancing esthetic science with innovations in such areas as ethnic skincare, peels and peer education.
Known internationally as a product formulator and Crystal Award winner, Bella publishes regularly on esthetics topics and enjoys a hands-on relationship with her clients, ranging from Silicon Valley executives and celebrities to a diverse clientele who wish to optimize their appearance and health. Currently, Bella is growing her retail line of leading-edge skincare products, which has received a great deal of media attention in outlets such as InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, Byrdie, The Huffington Post, and The Today Show.
Recently, Awaken MD—a medi-spa—has also become part of LaBelle Day Spas and Salons, rounding out Bella’s vision of creating a “one-stop beauty haven” where you can enjoy services such as custom facials and massages, along with dermal fillers, laser hair removal, skin tightening, and more.
From an early age, Bella has been fascinated with skincare. As a teen growing up in Israel, Bella suffered from severe acne and pleaded with her mom to take her to a skincare professional to help her. Her mom brought her to a local spa where the esthetician created formulations right in front of Bella’s eyes that helped heal her skin. From that experience, she was hooked, and asked to apprentice at the spa. She was 14.
The wealth of knowledge Bella absorbed working at the spa throughout her teenage years carried over with her when she moved to California to attend business school at Cal Berkeley. Bella worked as an esthetician to pay for school, and never dreamt that this was the business she would then create years later. However, that’s exactly what happened.
Bella’s passion is to empower women by making them feel and look their most beautiful. Bella’s daughter Tiffany and grandson Raphael join her in making LaBelle your favorite beauty and relaxation destination.
Bella has been in the skincare game for a long time. Book a custom facial and let her tell you what your skin needs.
We love the proximity of Bella’s full service spa and AwakenMD. You can book all your beauty services together and save time on travel. A massage followed by an oxygen facial or laser resurfacing treatment? Yes please!
Bella and her staff are known for making people feel at home. There is no cold, sterile environment here in Palo Alto.
