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.
Makeup artist and aesthetician Kimberley has come a long way since her days of doing of makeup for the Temecula Frontier Days Pageant.

Today, the well-rounded specialist helms Starlight Skin Care, where she performs a range of skin and beauty services.

Bliss on Broadway Spa & Boutique's beautifying services are half high-tech, half back to basics. The spa shows off its innovative side with LED light therapy and microcurrent face-lifts, which prompt cell regeneration without abrasion or tissue damage. An entire produce stand's worth of natural ingredients infuse classic beauty services, from the sweet-smelling banana acids that soften skin in a facial peel to the kelp-infused seawater bath that relaxes feet and makes them less scared of the ocean in spa pedicures.
The latter take place from cushy thrones made private by gauzy white curtains. The rest of the spa's decor balances clean minimalism with an earth-mama aesthetic, with white-painted branches spiraling from a vase and panels of soft fabric hanging from the walls.
Crystals dangling from a chandelier twinkle overhead, illuminating a serene interior punctuated by the bright presence of hot pink orchid plants.
