When people think of you, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely your face, closely followed by your puggle, then by a really weird commercial they saw on Monday Night Football. Make your mug memorably shiny-fresh and give your designer lapdog a run for its kibble with today's skin-restoring deal: $35 for a one-hour customized facial at Flawless Faces Makeup & Skincare Lounge (a $75 value).
BodyCentre Day Spa often looks beneath the surface, searching for ways to make clients feel rejuvenated inside and out. This commitment even helped the Costa Mesa location earn a spot on the CBS Los Angeles list of 2014's Best Day Spas In Orange County.
The spas' massage therapists perform a range of relaxing and mind-centering modalities that can relieve chronic aches while restoring a greater sense of focus and self-awareness. This includes everything from deep-tissue work and acupressure to shiatsu and reflexology. The spas' skincare treatments adopt a similarly broad approach, improving tone and texture as they address individual needs with a combination of specialized products, noninvasive techniques, and advanced technologies—including hyperbaric oxygen and sea fennel stem cells. For a thoroughly cleansing experience, the centers even offer detoxifying colon-hydrotherapy sessions.
The staff at Philosophy Wellness Spa want clients to leave feeling relaxed from head to toe. To that end, the majority of their facial services don't just focus on the cheeks and forehead—they include special treatments for eyes, lips, hands, and feet, as well as a warm stone massage for the neck and shoulders. But everyday facials are just the beginning of what this oasis of calm has to offer. Oxygen infusion facials breathe fresh life into the skin, and Himalayan salt stone massages soothe sore muscles and marinate the skin with iron and nutrients, leaving it prone to kisses from baby deer. Of course, when it comes to health and beauty, what you take out is just as important as what you put in. Which is why the spa also offers a detox body wrap to help expel toxins and excess water weight.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Skilled aesthetician Liliane imports her waxes directly from France—along with most of her beauty techniques. Through a spectrum of spa services, such as herbal peels, anti-aging facials, waxing, and eyebrow designs, she addresses what she recognizes as ladies’ three most-important beauty needs: smooth skin, hairless skin, and well-designed eyebrows. Before each of her signature waxing and facial services, she customizes her treatments to each client’s individual needs and skin type.
Inside a glass- and aquamarine-accented beauty studio, Nanu Threading attends to all manner of skincare needs with hair removal and facial services. Experienced threading specialists swiftly drag a twisted strand of cotton string across the face to remove unwanted follicles. Clients also come in for soothing spa facials and the salon's henna tattoos—intricate, semi-permanent artwork drawn onto clients' hands or distracted clients' gloves.
