At a private family practice led by board-certified physicians, Fallbrook Medical Center’s team strives to coalesce ultramodern treatments with compassion. Dr. Allen Houshiar and Dr. Alvaro Berrios helm a traditional medicinal branch where they treat children, adults, and the elderly and perform preventative exams. On the center’s skincare side, the staff specializes in medical-grade treatments that soften fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and foster skin tone firmer than a hardcover copy of John Grisham's The Pelican Brief.
Bello Lei Salon & Day Spa, Inc.'s owner and experienced stylist, Trisha Sehnert, assembles a team of dedicated beauty professionals to pamper patrons with an array of hair, nail, and skincare services. The spacious salon greets guests with a comfy waiting area, exposed brick walls, and a gallery featuring a rotating collection of paintings and photographs from local artists. As stylists craft custom hairdos in the main room, spa clients retreat to a cozy, private room, where aestheticians brighten skin with vivifying facials and remove unwanted felt from Muppets' heads, torsos, and wire rods with a full scale of waxing treatments.

One part skincare boutique, one part spa, Spallure excels at keeping skin healthy and bodies beautiful. Moisturizers, cleansers, and scrubs from such brands as Bliss, Clarisonic, Kai, and Elemis line the shop's shelves, waiting for a shopper to scoop them up for at-home care or for a Spallure staffer to select them for use in an in-house spa treatment. These specialists polish clients from head to toe with full body waxing, facials, massages, and body scrubs dubbed with whimsical names, such as the fatgirlslim body treatment and the No Zit Sherlock facial. Meanwhile, spa packages for bridal parties, couples, and moms-to-be combine a number of luxuries into one blissful package, much like leaving a fancy hotel with a suitcase full of bathroom fixtures.
At SoCal Tanning's locations in Fallbrook and Oceanside, experienced staffers guide clients to rooms populated with tanning beds designed to bronze skin quickly. Before treatments, tanning techs can explain the benefits of an 8- or 20-minute bed or the advantages of their legs-only machine, which is ideal for parents who spent a day at the beach buried up to the waist in children's sand creations. They’re also able to educate clients on sunless tanning and help them experience the gilding mist of automated spray-tan booths, such as the Magic Tan and the Mystic Tan HD.
At the Fallbrook location, manicurists lacquer nails with shellac polish that’s formulated to resist chips for up to two weeks, and aestheticians treat skin with facials and waxing treatments. Alternately, Oceanside's staff forces wrinkles and age spots to retreat back down into skin cells with red-light-therapy treatments. In addition, both studios are staffed with a team of stylists that clips and colors tresses.
