In partnership with Aveda, 1st Avenue Salon rolls out a fleet of services in the form of haircuts, color, bridal up-dos, and straightening treatments. An experienced team of mane masters consults each client before rearranging coiffures to match moods or backyard topiaries, and each team member soaks up weekly education seminars on the latest coloring techniques. A hotspot for handpicked products from renowned beauty brands such as Dermalogica and Moroccanoil, the beauty emporium also soothes epidermises with facials and body treatments that combine massage movements and detoxifying techniques to instill clients with a glow previously only achieved by standing in front of an open refrigerator.
Medical director and board-certified surgeon Dr. Chow leads La Bella Laser & Slimming's staff in traditional spa treatments as well as modern medical aesthetics, such as noninvasive Zerona laser body slimming. Dr. Chow's extensive educational background and prestigious fellowship experience have led him to become an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well. To accentuate the tastefully appointed studio's relaxing atmosphere, La Bella's team serves clients cups of house tea, fruit plates, and $100 bills to use as napkins.
The staff at Wax n' Peels swiftly and safely whisks away unwanted hair from even the most sensitive of skin types during customized waxing sessions. Inside the private, chocolate-hued treatment room, guests recline on a plush bed as techs coat designated areas, adhering to a strict no double-dipping policy, with a gentle, low-temperature hard or soft wax. The wax forms a shrink-wrap over strands and their day-old leftovers, plucking them from the root when the technician lifts wax strips away. Clients can use sessions to shape eyebrows and clear lip fuzz, or smooth entire nether regions with a Brazilian.
Featured on KCAL 9’s Best Of LA, Ann Karen Day Spa soothes sore muscles and minds throughout the San Gabriel Valley. The signature experience is a detoxifying hybrid treatment that combines organic plant and flower oils, a neurolymphatic massage, acupressure, and hot-stone therapy, kneading much-needed peace into the body's nervous system and energy canals. Ann Karen Day Spa is adorned with more than 30 treatment rooms and an opulent waiting area with mellow earth tones and provides additional services via saunas, jacuzzis, and heated clay tiles that are perfect for warming up your feet or toasting s'mores.
Chocolat Day Spa performs a hat trick of luxury, uniting chocolate, 24-karat gold, and specialty spa treatments for the benefit of tired faces and achy, dessert-deprived feet. The deluxe 24-karat-gold facial fosters waves of gilt-induced pleasure as the gold leaf envelopes the skin with a sensuous spray of steam (a $225 value). The indulgent facial teams up with a microdermabrasion or microneedle treatment to form a nonablative duo capable of banishing blemishes, shrinking wrinkles, and efficiently filling out tax returns. The exfoliating fudge-scrub treats feet to 30 minutes of sumptuous sweet-smelling rejuvenation (a $35 value). As leg-bases luxuriate in their chocolatey massage, lips and tensions are loosed with a complimentary chocolate martini for guests age 21 or older.
The beautifying experts at Eden Body Shaping master non-invasive techniques designed to soothe skin and contour the body's overzealous curves. The one-hour anti-cellulite treatment releases tissue-trapped toxins to stymie cellulite production and sets up striped tents and stages for an old-fashioned epidermal revival. An initial scrub exfoliation rids skin of dead skin cells and freckle shells before an ampule of amino cells replenishes lost proteins. A warm parafango wrap coats bellies and legs with a blend of paraffin wax and mud that draws out unwanted compounds as fatty areas are compressed, resulting in tighter skin and looser-fitting pajamas. Anti-cellulite wraps can be effective in alleviating the symptoms of cellulite, arthritis, and carpal tunnel, as well as reducing the presence of varicose veins. Patients experience no downtime or pain post-procedure, affording the freshly smoothed to immediately volunteer as human slip-n-slides without reason for concern.
