In the 28 years since Kymberly Whitaker first started doing makeup, her professional life has been a cosmetic whirlwind. She's attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, co-owned a medical spa, worked in medical aesthetics for renowned plastic surgeons, and served as Aveda's Southern California education director of skincare. Now in the comfort of her own aesthetic haven, PURskin Spa, she exercises her beautification chops by performing restorative facials, peels, and specialty waxing services. Her adoration of beautiful creatures also carries over to her second passion, horses, which she rides and enters into competitions.
The board-certified physicians at The Vein Clinic of Temecula Valley want to see more skin. They notice that patients with varicose and spider veins often hide the purple and red squiggles with longer clothes, thicker makeup, or hot-dog costumes. To restore clients’ confidence, the physicians address veins with services including tried-and-true injections and advanced laser treatments. Surface laser treatments deftly fade red spider veins and red freckles without breaking the skin or incurring patient downtime.
The technicians demonstrate their dedication to patients by creating a pleasant experience that continues beyond the initial treatment. During each varicose-vein treatment or PRP skin-rejuvenation treatment, the staff play the client’s choice of music. After varicose-vein treatments, unsightly red bumps often develop. Rather than letting these heal on their own—which may take weeks—the staff invite patients back for a complimentary treatment to banish these bumps, leaving legs as smooth as an oiled bald cap.

Green and taupe drapes extend out from the salon’s walls, creating individual pedicure alcoves. Here, skilled technicians trim, buff, and decorate phalange shields to an eye-catching sheen.

Clients may also solicit the salon for lash extensions, or banish unwanted fuzz with a signature waxing session.
