Radiant Skin Spa founder and aesthetician Rayna Rodriguez specializes in skincare treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasions that help foster a healthy complexion. Her custom facials use products infused with vitamin C and alpha and beta hydroxy acids to brighten and beautify skin. Other services offered include waxing and brow and lash tinting.
Peels exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, revealing a fresher face. The Vivite glycolic 70% peel works to smooth face crinkles, reduce appearance of unsightly blemishes, and improve overall texture and tone. Ceremoniously shed skin cells, greet the season with a fresh face, or get your complexion in gear the reptilian way. Call ahead to schedule an appointment with Christine, who will use AboutSkin's state-of-the-art facilities to restore a radiant complexion to any dull visage.

When Mona Borden founded Mona's Dermatherapy in 2003, she assembled a staff with diverse areas of expertise in medical-grade skin treatments and spa and beauty services. Borden learned to treat acne, acne scars, rosacea, and aging-related complaints with frozen skin stem cells at the DNA Institute in Ventura, California for cryostem cell therapy, and addresses similar skin conditions with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. As a professional permanent-makeup artist, Borden highlights natural facial features and saves Gene Simmons impersonators the trouble of reapplying grease paint before every trip to the grocery store. Mona's Dermatherapy’s medical doctors oversee Botox and Juvederm injections and Zerona body-contouring treatments, and aestheticians perform beauty services such as facials and waxes.
Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.
The specialists at TransLife Wellness Center know that the human body is electric and they mimic the natural, tiny currents it produces during their microcurrent treatments. Doled out by the millionth of Ampere—an Ampere being the unit used to measure an electrical current—these tiny pulses help activate cells' self-healing capacity. Microcurrent treatments can help alleviate injuries or simply rejuvenate faces, combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and sun damage caused by exploring the sun without a parasol.
