Not only has Dr. Kelly Wong earned certifications from the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Academy of Aesthetics Medicine, she also took home the gold in a beauty pageant as recently as 2009. It comes as no surprise that she specializes in both preventative medical care and restorative cosmetic treatments. Dr. Wong's main duty includes providing primary care services such as immunizations and cancer screenings to newborns and older patients. But she also organizes weight loss programs and performs every chemical peel, botox injections, and other cosmetic treatment that gets scheduled, thanks to the cloning machine in back.
Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
The aestheticians at Skin Body Lounge, deemed Best Day Spa by the 2011 LA Hotlist, aim to even skin tones, mitigate blemishes, and evict unsightly fuzz with noninvasive skincare and hair-removal services. During full-face photo-rejuvenation, nonablative lasers emit concentrated light to target specific skin pigments?including dark spots left over from acne scarring or convincing dalmatian costumes?stimulating collagen and oxygen production to destroy unwanted bacteria and leave skin radiant. Pulsed-light hair removal, Epilar biochemical solutions, and waxing services strip wayward strands. Those looking to lose inches and smooth cellulite can enlist treatments such as detoxifying body wraps and electronic muscle stimulation. Results-oriented facials are customized to the unique needs of each visage, and microdermabrasion sloughs away dead cells to improve skin tone and texture. Airbrush tanning and makeup services get clients suited up for an evening out more effectively than wearing a cutout of the Hulk's face.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
Offering treatments that span 5,000 years of health care, the multitalented team at Dr. Midas Medical Group can alleviate ailments with everything from acupuncture, which originated in China five millennia ago, to modern laser technology. Their range of services also treats a wide variety of issues. The board-certified physicians and nurses can just as readily smooth wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers, as wield physique-contouring cold lasers, which liquefy fat in hard-to-tone areas. Meanwhile, acupuncturists insert their hair-thin needles into bodies at key points, addressing maladies such as infertility, unwanted weight, and blocked energy pathways. To complement the clinic?s noninvasive services, the staff also performs plastic-surgery treatments, which range from liposuction to face-lifts to setting broken Barbie arms.
Kalologie 360 Spa's expert beauty gurus offer a first-class selection of pampering services, earning the franchise a spot on Elle magazine's 2008 list of Top 10 Beauty Boutiques. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body.
