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.
Dr. Larry Lasky wants to see smaller numbers on scales, pant labels, and—most importantly—medical studies regarding obesity-related diseases. He shares this mission with the community through broader-scale initiatives aimed at improving school lunches and the readability of nutrition labels, and through personalized plans for clients at his weight-loss centers. There, he and his team of bariatric specialists guide patients through their medical weight-loss programs step by step. They tailor treatments for individual needs, customizing diet plans, administering weekly injections of lipotropic and Lipo B compounds, and recommending FDA-approved appetite suppressants and medications.
Dr. Khanh Tran and his staff operate under a simple premise: the structure of the body determines its function. Dr. Tran keeps this in mind as he runs his hands along his clients’ spines, looking for the telltale subluxations and slipped disks that may signal any number of physical issues. Though these issues run the gamut from chronic discomfort to a freely rotating head, the chiropractic staff consistently relies on an approach that triggers the body’s recuperative abilities with natural, drug-free therapies. The multidisciplined team works as a single unit, combining acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling in a program anchored by the doctor’s chiropractic adjustments.
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.
The depilation experts at Sameera Eyebrow Threading, a salon owned by husband-and-wife team Samir and Meera, specialize in beautifying faces through the middle eastern method of threading. By twisting doubled cotton filaments in quick, precise flicks, they uproot stray hairs to create graceful arches along brow lines or sleek racing stripes down calves. This technique can also be used to de-fuzz upper lips and cheeks. For the rest of the body, they rely on wax to banish stubble and render skin baby smooth. Beyond hair removal, the salon caters to many other aesthetic needs with a menu of services that includes haircuts and color treatments, facials, bridal makeup, henna art, and teeth whitening.
