At Belle Derm Laser Center, the laser is a jack-of-all-trades. The therapeutic beams of the clinic’s laser systems can permanently reduce unwanted stubble, smooth out forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and chicken knuckles, and minimize sagging. Staff schedules appointments flexibly within a space at the Festival at Bel Air shopping center.
The bounty of hues to pick from—including cocoa, caramel, cappuccino, and mocha—make it hard to pick the most attractive skin-bronzing shade at Glow – The Bronzing Studio. In this tanning mecca, experienced airbrush artists shower skin with droplets of 100% organic tanning spray, which are tailored to the client’s original skin tone and the timing of events such as weddings, photo shoots, and vacations on the surface of the sun. Tanning beds emanate UVA and UVB rays to cultivate color, and red-light-therapy pods swathe the body in crimson rays that may boost circulation and counteract stress, helping the body activate adenosine triphosphate, a naturally occurring compound that may help liberate energy from muscles.
A Smart Tan certified salon that's been locally owned and operated since 1997, Sunscape Tanning Salon banishes winter blues and pale hues with a variety of skin-bronzing services. Their SuperSonic standup booth infuses skin with color borrowed straight from sun, and their exclusive airbrush formula mimic a trip to the beach without the UV exposure. In addition to their extensive tanning experience and education, the highly trained staff continues the beauty enhancements with waxing services from brow to leg and facials that benefit teens, men, and women.
The Boulevard Salon & Spa deploys experienced stylists to deftly slice hairs from men's chins, cheeks, and heads. Guests recline in barber chairs while pre-shave oil and hot lather swaddle mugs in toasty foam, giving visages a glimpse into the brief life of a cappuccino. A keen-edged straight razor slides along the face to efficiently remove stubble. In the Executive shave, the razor doubles back for a second voyage against the grain, smoothing skin with a thoroughness comparable to double Zamboni treatments for ice rinks or double vacuumings of molting tropical birds. Frosty aftershave and an ice-cold towel seal pores and soothe sensitive dimples, and a face massage dissipates tension from overworked, skeptical eyebrows. Alternately, patrons can opt for a haircut and single shave that foregoes the razor's return visit. A consultation ensures that head bristles will be cropped to specifications using Kenra and L'Oreal professional products, and a hot towel—aided by a head-and-neck massage—steams shoulders into a relaxed slump.
This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master’s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.
