The aestheticians at Blu Salon are dedicated to pampering and treating besieged skin in an eclectic and soothing environment, free of elitist attitudes and imported cockatoos. Your appointment will start with a skin consultation to determine which of the six facial formulas best suits your pore preferences. Blu's signature facial service, the Blu Essential Facial ($100), is an hour-long face freshener that includes basic cleansing, balancing, exfoliation, European-style massage, and skin-specific hydration. The 60-minute Anti-Aging Facial ($120) replenishes moisture and hydration lost to years of sunny days and skies with scattered clouds. Well-mannered men with unruly razors can soothe sensitive skin and irritation with the Gentleman's Facial ($90, 45 minutes). The blow-dry ($40+) that follows your countenance cleansing is a full-fledged hair helper that includes a shampoo, salon styling, hand exfoliation, and head-and-neck massage.
LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
At Laser & Aesthetic Medical Center, PC, board-certified physician Dr. Kailash C. Singhvi personally administers each aesthetic and wellness procedure to ward off the effects of the aging process. With an arsenal of contemporary lasers at his disposal, he smoothens wrinkles from the face, reduces cellulite from the backs of legs, and destroys tiny Death Stars orbiting in front of the eyes. The youth-inducing beams can also remove hair or stimulate it to grow in areas where thinning has occurred. Injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm combat wrinkles, and Dr. Singhvi's wellness programs address internal maladies by identifying thyroid problems and hormones that may be causing weight gain. For ailments related to injury and sleeping on tables without face holes, Dr. Singhvi administers soothing massage therapy.
The techs at all Victoria's Nails and Spa locations have one thing in common: they pride themselves on running clean shops where clients can come to get their paws pampered.
