Bodycentre Wellness Spa brings well-being back to bodies through treatments that range from nonsurgical cellulite reduction to laser teeth whitening. The spa's massage therapists listen receptively to client cues during therapies that may be tailored toward simple relaxation or enhanced with hot rocks, reflexology, or a hydrating herbal body wrap. Similarly customizable skincare treatments range from traditional facials with aromatherapy to photo-rejuvenation, which uses the healing power of light to stimulate collagen production in sun-damaged skin or aging vacation slides. For internal cleansing, clients can opt to schedule colon hydrotherapy sessions with an experienced practitioner or retreat into the privacy of a Health Mate dry sauna, crafted from Canadian cedar and equipped with amenities such as a CD sound system and reading lamp.
The aestheticians and health aficionados at Skin D' Amour foster total well-being by treating patrons with a holistic approach to beauty. To enhance the exterior, skin experts harness the power of their own line of products as well as formulas from brands such as Murad, Josephine, and EltaMD. Nail techs mollycoddle digits, and waxing techs leave skinscapes feeling smooth. To cleanse the body's insides, acupuncturists release clients' toxins; massage therapists reduce stress; and weight-loss experts dispense advice on how to shed pounds into thin air rather than onto the couch.
Skin D' Amour supplements its salon and spa services with a modest lineup of fitness classes. The center's squad of instructors lead group classes in tai chi, yoga meditation, Zumba, and more to help participants maintain their look and feel through consistent, healthy habits.
The aestheticians at Divine Threading Studio treat clients to services as modern as Dermalogica facials and as traditional as henna tattoos. The salon specializes in depilation treatments, which remove hair using either the familiar heated-wax method or the ancient Eastern threading technique that's considered more appealing to people with sensitive skin. The aestheticians also showcase their precise handiwork by applying intricately designed henna tattoos, which weave their way up the hands and arms of brides-to-be or clients who want to test-drive a tattoo design for a few weeks. For a finishing touch, clients can ask for an ear or nose piercing, face accessories as stylish as Mr. Potato Head's during Fashion Week.
Thanks to its recent remodel, one might be surprised to hear that the salon and spa known as Christopher Stephens has pampered clients with personalized beauty treatments for the past 15 years. The salon’s stylists draw on the experience amassed in that period to add length and definition to manes with 100% human-hair extensions and bioionic straightening tools. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians brighten complexions with seven types of facials and bronze skin with UV-free airbrush-tanning solutions. Whether styling hair or scraping off the sticky remnants of a nightly cocoon, Christopher Stephens’s staff members pride themselves on using professional beauty products from brands such as OPI, Keratin Complex, and BareMinerals.
Originally located in New York, Yuva Threading Salon has expanded to a fourth location in Anaheim with a service menu that blends classic South Asian beauty techniques and modern Western traditions. During a Brazilian wax, a professional technician utilizes essential oils and waxes naturally derived from plants and antique televisions to leave the skin completely bare and velvety smooth. The salon maintains a no-double-dipping policy to ensure sanitary waxing services. Alternatively, eyebrow threading—a centuries-old hair-removal technique developed in South Asia—involves a twisted thread being pulled along the skin to lift hairs from their roots in a quick, precise, and relatively painless method that bestows brows with a beautiful arch and no cowlicks.
