When he’s not advising area fire departments on emergency medicine, Dr. Phong Nguyen applies his expertise as medical director of the emergency department at Redlands Community Hospital to his position as director of Hospitality Medical Aesthetics. Nguyen and his team strive to marry in-office treatments—including noninvasive laser therapies, cosmetic injections, medically supervised weight loss, and levitation therapies—with at-home care regimens. By skillfully using products ranging from Obagi Medical to SkinCeuticals, the aesthetics crew claimed the 2011 Best Facial and Best Brow Shaping Runner-Up awards on CityVoter.
Before even stepping inside a tanning bed, clients at Electric Beach Tanning can get a head-start on the perfect bronze. The experienced staff offers a skin consultation to determine the most appropriate tanning products for clients during tanning sessions. Alternatively, spray tans are available for those who wish to create sun-kissed skin without UV rays.
Reveal Skin and Body Care, lauded by Inland Empire magazine in its 2013 “Very Best of the I.E.” issue, invites guests to relax surrounded by soft lighting, earth tones, and soothing skin and hair services. Facial treatments cleanse pores, exfoliate skin, and help alleviate acne. Waxing services remove unwanted hair from areas such as lips, faces, arms, and legs, and stylists deftly provide women's, men's, and children's haircuts along with deep conditioning and highlights.
Because no two bodies are alike, the skilled massage therapists at LaCour’s tailor treatments to each client’s individual needs. A skilled massage therapist may administer flowing Swedish or shiatsu techniques to ease tension or apply firmer deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer aches. Guests may also solicit LaCour’s all-natural products for beautifying treatments such as mani-pedis, relaxing facials, and specialty waxing.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Ben J. Childers, the staff at Sheer Beauty harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients prepare and then relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
The medical staff at Fountain of Youth Medical Spa rely on lasers to reverse signs of aging and erase skin blemishes. They calibrate their noninvasive beams to achieve a range of effects, from tightening skin and boosting collagen production to vanquishing unwanted hair, tattoos, acne, or brown spots. Whatever the aim, the team listens to clients' expectations during consultations, which kick off every visit.
