Deisy Suarez parlays lifelong talent into DESUAR Spas – LA Downtown News Online

Deisy Suarez has devoted her entire life to making people look their best. 

Her interest in the beauty world started at the young age of 8. While living in the Dominican Republic, Suarez loved playing with ingredients to create her beauty products, which led her to formulate her first face scrub. 

After practicing her craft and sharing it with people in her community, she began charging for her services and products.

After moving to New York, Suarez dealt with many challenges like discrimination, specifically against Dominican natives who moved to the United States. 

Due to fear and anxiety, Suarez stayed home and worked on her craft. 

“I would do my makeup, my hair, or give myself a facial with whatever ingredients were in the kitchen,” Suarez said. 

In 1987, everything changed for Suarez. She founded DESUAR Cosmetics in 2004. 

After working in the beauty industry for several years in Los Angeles and New York, Suarez put her 15 years of expertise in spa management and self-care into creating DESUAR Spa. 

She opened her first location in Downtown Los Angeles. This month she relocated her second spa from Los Feliz to Hollywood, boasting the same impeccable service and treatments and is ADA compliant. 

DESUAR Spa is also known for its services.

“We have a unique menu,” Suarez said.

“A lot of spas tend to have niche services. We want to be a one-stop-shop. You can get a relaxing massage, a body scrub, a wrap, eyebrows tinted, or waxing. We’ve become the leading beauty spa center in Los Angeles, offering customers everything from hydra-facials to CBD treatments.”

DESUAR Spa thrives on offering the best experience to its guests by providing private areas for events for bachelorette, birthdays and graduation parties, and more. 

The Hollywood location has two levels with more than 3,350 square feet of usable space. The site will include two couples rooms, five additional treatment rooms, changing rooms, copper tubs, showers, lockers, two relaxation rooms and a retail area.  

As if a second location was not enough, DESUAR Spa recently partnered with Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa for its third location. 

The partnership will also include guest referrals from its sister hotels within the 1- to 5-mile radius, including Spindrift Inn, Monterey Bay Inn, Wave Street Inn and Victorian Inn. The Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa location is 2,700 square feet and will feature five treatment rooms, including lockers, showers, changing rooms, a relaxation area, an outdoor hot tub, and a retail shop for spa visitors.  

While DESUAR Spa in DTLA temporarily closed because of COVID-19, Suarez spent her time in quarantine pursuing her lifelong goal of writing a book. 

Her book, “Marriage Material: How I Found My Husband,” was published in 2020 and is centered on love, relationships and marriage. It shares the inspiring personal story of how she and her now-husband overcame adversity to start a life together. She also parallels the current pandemic that has affected so many planned weddings and relationships. It’s meant to inspire and provide hope for those doubtful of love, afraid they’ll never find the right person or are stuck in an unfulfilling relationship. Suarez said that the need for self-care — beauty, and wellness — has kept her passionate about her career. 

“There’s more to beauty and wellness than putting makeup on your face,” she added. “We take our body for granted. We need to treat our bodies as a whole. I wanted to be an ambassador to this industry and educate and teach people the benefits of taking care of your body inside and out and feeling good without having to break the bank. 

“This is all I do and have done. I do skin care. I know rituals and services. I can do it with my eyes closed. This is not something I decided I would do yesterday after watching YouTube videos. It’s been a lot of years in the making.”
