When he’s not advising area fire departments on emergency medicine, Dr. Phong Nguyen applies his expertise as medical director of the emergency department at Redlands Community Hospital to his position as director of Hospitality Medical Aesthetics. Nguyen and his team strive to marry in-office treatments—including noninvasive laser therapies, cosmetic injections, medically supervised weight loss, and levitation therapies—with at-home care regimens. By skillfully using products ranging from Obagi Medical to SkinCeuticals, the aesthetics crew claimed the 2011 Best Facial and Best Brow Shaping Runner-Up awards on CityVoter.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
The technicians and aestheticians at Rejuvenate Redlands devote themselves to stymying time's negative effects on the face and body with innovative, safe techniques.

Dedicated to finding the right treatment for each client, the team conducts free consultations before every procedure.

International Day Spa has been supplying Redlands-area pamperistas with relaxing and beautifying treatments for more than 21 years. In the Massage à Trois service, couples take turns receiving one-hour Swedish/American massages. The partner not currently receiving the massage is encouraged to participate with the therapist, learning techniques that can be used at home or at stressful youth soccer games. After both partners have received their massage, couples are invited to relax in the Turkish steam room, attacking their already weakened stress levels with an assault of vapors and withering criticism. Solo spa goers can opt instead to partake of the spa’s other services, including hot-stone massage ($95+), facials (generally $45–$235), and hydrotherapy services, such as aromatherapy body buffing or salt glow with a relaxing Vichy shower ($55).
The stylists of Mon Amie Salon prettify hair, deftly apply makeup, and carefully wax away wayward fuzz. Scissor-wielding pros cut and style locks ($30–$40), deep-conditioning listless strands into go-getting paragons of the hair community ($10). For an all-over hue boost, mane mavens deliver a color infusion with the Lakme color collage, which dispatches a soy-based product to soften the hair fiber, feng shui the scalp, and create long-lasting, shiny color ($55+). Makeup artists conduct personalized sessions on proper application, bestowing clients with a personal take-home chart ($40), while eyebrow and facial waxing sessions keep unwanted tendrils at bay ($15 each). Visitors to the earthy salon sip on complimentary beverages while lounging amidst textured walls, wooden floors, and decorative mirrors that reflect what you’d look like with a beard.
