More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
Listed in Southern California's Super Doctors, Fresh Face Med Spa and its staff of certified professionals, including a licensed aesthetician, a registered nurse, and the 2007 Chief of Staff at Methodist Hospital of Southern California, resuscitates weary faces with personalized skincare services. The 30-minute express SilkPeel provides microdermabrasion without exposure to aluminum oxide crystals. Diamond-tipped dermalinfusion exfoliates, stimulates, and hydrates skin to help with acne, wrinkles, melty face, and sun damage. The 60-minute procedure combines the peel with deep cleansing, a preparatory gentle peel, facial massage, and finishing mask. Both treatments include Visia Skin Analysis, which uses a computer program to unearth damage unseen by the unclothed eye. Clients come face-to-own-face with covert wrinkles, pores, bacteria, and UV spots fueled by overexposure to the sun and living inside a volcano. Based on the results of the analysis, Fresh Face professionals will recommend treatment, answer questions, and sign a copy as a souvenir.
Individuals come to My Natural Permanent Makeup for myriad reasons. Maybe they want to cut down on their beauty routine in the morning. Maybe age has hindered their eyesight or steady hand, affecting their ability to apply makeup. Whatever the reason, the staff expertly applies permanent liner to the upper and lower lids, colors lips, and fills in sparse brows lost while lighting your last candy cigarette.

Salon de Jeunesse provides a bevy of beautifying services to smooth the skin's surface. A 45–60 minute microdermabrasion-, glycolic-, and collagen-combination treatment triple teams ornery skin and buffs away fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations, creating optimal playing conditions for microscopic games of curling. The trifecta of skinsavers encourages faces to churn out more of their natural hyaluronic acids and collagens, making them so incandescent they can be used to search for missing mustards in lightless refrigerators.
