Under the guidance of the medical directors, the health and beauty experts at Smooth Medical Aesthetics & Wellness Spa promote wellness with a variety of clinical and holistic treatments. A doctor or nurse can facilitate medical services, such as cosmetic injectables or Titan infrared-light laser skin-tightening sessions. Licensed aestheticians tone facial features with micronized-current LumiLift treatments, and massage therapists loosen muscles with deep-tissue or trigger point therapy massages. To enhance internal well-being, however, guests turn to a reiki master or certified hypnotherapist for help overcoming anxiety, reducing stress, or quitting bad habits.
The spa's interior promotes a sense of relaxation. A full-length mural depicts a tranquil, rock-lined seascape with pink flowers and verdant plants, and the other walls are bathed in calming sea-green and maroon tones.
Guests at Relax Spa and Beauty ? Burbank, winner of Citysearch's Best Relaxation Massage 2008, unwind with head-to-toe treatments.
