Neither needles nor knives can be found at Body Contour Spa, where noninvasive laser liposuction transforms wobbly bits into trim and svelte physiques. Ultrasonic waves from the spa’s LipoLaser system permeate the area of the client’s choice—including the tummy, thighs, back, or buttocks—and gradually dissolve fat cells, allowing their contents to move through the body until naturally absorbed. Within three to four sessions, clients may begin to see noticeable whittling of their waists or shrinking of their third arms. Aside from noninvasive liposuction, Body Contour Spa aids in general bodily detox with prepackaged body wraps, which whisk away internal toxins from the body in as little as 45 minutes.
With Paul Mitchell Awapuhi deep-conditioning products in one hand and Babyliss European flatirons in the other, Salon Accente’s stylists reshape tresses with precision cuts and de-frizzing treatments. They’re also able to add length to locks via feather extensions and dimension to monochromatic manes with full and partial sets of highlights. Salon Accente’s beauty technicians wax unruly brows into graceful arches and tint lashes to frame peepers beautifully without the help of solid-gold sunglasses.
Visions Salon and Spa's owner Shirley Manulak arrives at work each day determined to fulfill her customers’ cosmetic needs. “We just wanted to have a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. We want to shampoo away some of your stress,” she told Y.C. Orozco of the Pasadena Citizen. Armed with 35 years of experience as a cosmetology instructor and a skilled staff, her salon offers an array of aesthetic services, including manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling in a salon renovated after Manulak bought it two years ago. Like jazz bands that are serious about their craft, the staff steam cleans all of their instruments with autoclaves and medical-grade disinfectant.
The professionals at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva draw upon their experience as medical aestheticians and certified laser technician when performing laser and IPL procedures at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva. Therapeutic laser beams aim to reduce unwanted stubble and combat leg and facial veins. Procedures can also resurface faces, leaving behind glowing complexions so patrons can remove the reading lights clipped to their noses. And laser-free facial treatments can likewise brighten skin; these treatments include chemical peels and Vibradermabrasion.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Swedish Beauty and California Tan.
