Electrolysis in Carpinteria

Select Local Merchants

At her eponymous spa, skincare expert Colleen Elizabeth takes a holistic approach to beauty, favoring long-term solutions over one-time treatments. Her recommendations during a complimentary consultation can range from minor changes to an at-home skincare regimen to a series of medical-grade services at the spa. Either way, clients will be in good hands. Colleen Elizabeth personally selects all of her spa's skincare products from top-quality lines such as GloMinerals and Ayur-Medic, and many others are custom-made, like the stamps doctors use to give each newborn baby its fingerprints. In-spa services include advanced treatments such as electrotherapy facials and full-body chemical peels, as well as standard facials, plus makeup, waxing, and massages.

Unique Tan's Smart Tan?certified staff members use their extensive knowledge to help color seekers pursue an optimal bronze glow at a trio of tanning salons. Guests step into private, standup Mystic spray-tan booths, where an automated system sprays a custom color solution filled with collagen and neutraceuticals across the body, much like a jaunt through a sprinkler but with even, perfect aim. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. Meanwhile, a fleet of UV beds equipped with gentle high-pressure bulbs, cooling systems, and individual music selections bronzes bodies in short bursts. Additionally, the Twilight Teeth whitening option can brighten smiles during tanning sessions in a bed or at home with easily affixed mouthpieces.

All the team members at Mi Salon have a fervor for hair and nails. For some of them, that passion dates back to their youth. As a child, Martin helped style his sisters' strands and painted their nails with French tips, whereas young Ursula spent her play time coifing manes. Years later, the two work alongside other beauty experts at Mi Salon. Although the salon's space is small, its list of services is not?clients can be pampered with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, haircuts, mani-pedis, and makeup applications.

Alicia has also perfected her talent for performing facials, and she's discerning when it comes to the products she uses. When caring for a client's complexion, Alicia eschews chemical-laden serums for a line of plant-based, cruelty-free beautifiers free of additives.

Hair Free Forever owner Cheryl Conway has come a long way since her early years studying and practicing at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Her interest in electrology took her across the country to Beverly Hills, where she specialized in eyebrow design. Her expertise allowed her to analyze and execute proper corrections to achieve the perfect shape for each individual patient?a skill she continues to use in her role as an expert consultant for the California State Board of Cosmetology. This passion led her to pioneer California's first apprenticeship program for Thermolysis, or permanent hair removal. Today, she continues to educate students in the highly specialized procedure.

As a member of the American Electrology Association, Cheryl continues to free patients from the cycles of shaving or waxing with FDA-approved thermolysis treatments that are safe and effective for all types of skin and hair. High-frequency currents heat the follicles of actively growing hairs, causing them to permanently stop growing, and maintenance sessions ensure that all follicles are treated. Clients can choose to target any part of the face or body, or opt for eyebrow-shaping thermolysis treatments?one of Conway's longest-standing specialties.
