The team of medical providers at Rejuvenating Skin Care tends to weary bodies through a hybrid of medical and spa services, instilling beautification amid burnt-orange and tan walls set aglow by warm candlelight. For laser hair removal, trained nurse practitioners brandish their high-tech follicle zappers, which inhibit hair growth while soothing skin with cooling spray between each pulse. Juv?derm dermal fillers and microdermabrasion treatments vanquish signs of aging, and Latisse works with magic beans to help sprout longer, fuller lashes.
While some medical treatments may be reactionary?responding to symptoms as they appear?holistic therapy adopts a proactive, preventative approach by targeting symptoms and underlying causes simultaneously, ultimately promoting a stronger sense of wellbeing. This holistic approach is key to the doctors and therapists at Optimal Health & Wellness, where inspiration from both Eastern and Western medicine informs personalized therapeutic regimens.
With an emphasis on minimally invasive yet highly specialized care, the team offers a broad range of treatment modalities, including chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, naturopathy, specialized lab and diagnostic testing, general medicine, homeopathy, and nutritional coaching. This eclectic approach allows Optimal Health & Wellness to better aid clients from a holistic standpoint, helping to relieve pain while supporting natural self-healing.
Glowing with the warmth of thousands of contented sighs, the Royal Health Spa in Hacienda Heights offers a half a hundred ways to forget about your worries. Reds and golds dominate this sanctuary of serenity, which treats clients to steam rooms, saunas, and three temperature tubs. Elsewhere in the hideaway guests can kick back in the VIP lounge, or nibble treats from the fruit and snack bar.
Sister spa Sakura ups the ante with soothing massage and aromatherapy services to complement the steam sauna. Here, an assortment of thick carpets, bamboo wall fixtures, and hanging greenery completes the tropical feel. A San Gabriel Valley fixture for more than 20 years, Sakura Health Spa heals guests with uncommonly intense massages such as the Four Hands and the Lava Stone.
Not only has Dr. Kelly Wong earned certifications from the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Academy of Aesthetics Medicine, she also took home the gold in a beauty pageant as recently as 2009. It comes as no surprise that she specializes in both preventative medical care and restorative cosmetic treatments. Dr. Wong's main duty includes providing primary care services such as immunizations and cancer screenings to newborns and older patients. But she also organizes weight loss programs and performs every chemical peel, botox injections, and other cosmetic treatment that gets scheduled, thanks to the cloning machine in back.
Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
Lorine Mikhaeil leads a busy life. A trained nurse and a certified permanent makeup artist, she helms Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) as well as Zena Day Spa, Derma Blush, and American Permanent Cosmetics Institute. But no matter how busy Lorine gets, she always takes her time with her clients.
At OPM, Lorine uses a semi-permanent organic ink to expertly define brows, lips, eyelids, and even areolas for those affected by breast cancer. This metal-free formulation gives her greater control when she is applying the ink into the upper dermal layer. During these treatments, Lorine uses an advanced power pin and for brows a specialized hairbrush stroke method that she invented herself, which gives the illusion of 3D brow strands. To ensure clients are inked with complementing colors, Lorine refers to the Fitzpatrick skin type chart to make sure brows match their skin tone and auras.
Though OPM's name focuses on one service, the boutique spa's menu is brimming with a range of other aesthetic treatments. Strands stand no chance against OPM's three hair removal systems, which include waxing, threading, and laser hair removal. Alternately, dermal fillers and microdermabrasions keep complexions firm and looking younger than a toddler holding a newborn dolphin.
