The Image Skincare customized facial rejuvenates and relaxes clients with a complete skin analysis and choice of products, followed by a deep cleansing, gentle exfoliation, light extractions, and high-frequency treatment. Countenances conclude pampering with a custom mask or light chemical peel and a face, neck, hand, and shoulder massage that releases stress like a deleted umlaut. This deal also includes a 1–2 week take-home supply kit of Image Skincare products to prolong the facial benefits ($25), as well as a consultation to determine which shades of mineral makeup suit your skin tones best.

White Lotus Day Spa encourages tranquility and rejuvenation through soothing body treatments, waxing, spray-tanning, and organic, all-natural skincare services. But it also encourages beauty by being beautiful itself. The spa?s front area lets in loads of light, thanks to a curved wall that?s made up of floor-to-ceiling windows as well as ornamental fixtures hanging from the ceiling and candles flecking the finely stained wood cabinetry. Blue and brown walls backdrop pottery, which evokes the beauty being sculpted beyond. With more than 30 types of natural chemical peels, the highly trained aestheticians can help keep skin in the best possible health, whether the client?s concern is overcoming hyperpigmentation or reversing the signs of aging. Customized massages, reflexology, bamboo chi infusion therapy, and foot detoxes help clients feel their best without sprawling out on the area rug to revel in its softness in front of the other guests.
The highly trained medical staff at OC Medical Aesthetics and Skin Care rewind years off of faces with noninvasive alternatives to surgery. The Refinity glycolic peel excavates fresh faces in 30 minutes with a nonirritating formula that exfoliates away comatose skin, aiding in the reduction of fine lines and brown spots with little to no peeling. Patients' skin may be slightly red after the procedure, but the discoloration can be easily covered with makeup or the "undo" feature on Electric Pencil.
Frank Paduganan sees massage not only as a way to relax the body, but also as a way to clear the mind. His spirited, holistic approach shows itself in a variety of modalities, from Swedish and sports to geriatric and oncology massage. He can upgrade any service with deep-muscle therapy, which uses hot towels and warming lotion to help loosen particularly tight tissue.
Frank's studio is inside the Luca Shea Salon; inside, candlelight glows in a room already warmed by amber walls and the sleek, dark wood of the cabinets and massage table. Outside of his minimalist studio, Frank can also perform chair massage. He will provide this service at office buildings and special events, but not at the La-Z-Boy store.
