A Fresh Face Skin Care Clinic's aestheticians aim to eradicate stress with a lengthy, comprehensive slate of holistic-minded spa services amplified by sensory experiences. To kick off each soothing therapy, including massages, scrubs, facials, and hair-removal treatments, clients answer the Aveda Elemental Nature questionnaire, which is designed to help staff members customize treatments based on the five ayurvedic elements found in nature: infinity, air, water, fire, and earth. Like a cradle made from billowing cloud fragments, Aveda tea and a relaxing foot massage bolster each spa session.
The interior at Snip-its Kids Hair Salon & Spa looks like a kids' playhouse, highlighted by colorful, floor-to-ceiling murals. Those surroundings are enough to make kids forget that they're getting a haircut, and that's part of the point. Kids enjoy educational video games during haircuts, or try services that they're actually excited about, such as manicures and updos. Trained stylists boast safety measures such as safety straps for toddlers, and parents can sit next to children the entire time.
All of the products at the salon are specifically crafted for kids, and there are lots of other touches that go far beyond those old coloring books. This approach has landed the company in publications that range from the Washington Post to LA Parent. Their unique approach also includes themed beauty parties for kids such as Glamour, Trip-to-Hollywood, and Rock Star & Spa, during which youngsters romp through the space wearing costumes and robes and sipping juice boxes.
At Skin by Shannon, Shannon uses techniques such as clay masks, steam, exfoliations, and an enzyme peel during her custom facials to help battle anything from acne to dry skin. The skin specialist also expertly removes unwanted hair on faces, legs, and tails for women and men.
From the organic teas and fresh fruit that await clients when they walk through the front door to the soothing services performed inside treatment rooms, Cetina European Skin Spa creates a peaceful respite where clients can let go of their stresses. Operated by a mother-daughter team of aestheticians—Maria and Suzanne Cetina—the spa draws on both cutting-edge techniques and products in its indulgent therapies. The Cetinas emphasize the importance of natural skincare methods by stocking their shelves with Shir-Organic products made from whole fruits and rejuvenating herbs.
These organic products drive to the soothing effects of the spa's various facial treatments and body therapies, such as shea butter hand treatments that nourish skin or mineral-rich sea-mud wraps that provide marshland camouflage. For a more mechanical approach, the staff uses crystal and diamond microdermabrasion equipment to restore cheekbones' natural radiance while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and other blemishes. The massage therapists help complete spa escapes by soothing muscles with relaxing and therapeutic modalities.
Headed by doctor duo James Kojian, MD, and Cecilia Gutierrez, RN, BSN, the medically trained nurses and physicians assistants at The Rejuvenation Center smooth out epidermal planes with ultramodern medical products and technology. An arsenal of lasers wrenches back the hands of time, tackling acne and wrinkles with equal aplomb and also removing body hair and contouring faces. Injectables, dermal fillers, and chemical peels from brands such as SkinMedica and Apeele enhance mugs and attract celebrity clientele. The center counts model and reality star Brittany Binger as a fan of its chemical peel and laser hair removal. Many of the center?s procedures are mostly painless and require little downtime, allowing for immediate stunt doubling as a surfboard in live reenactments of Point Break.
