Henna artists accent the newly minted skin with ornately crafted floral patterns and designs. With henna cones in hand, they weave images that vary in detail, from simple yet striking dragonflies and Ankh symbols to larger and more elaborate illustrations of elephants, rabbits, and trees. Ceremonial henna tattoos decorate bodies with a reddish brown ink that's believed to bring good luck. Customers can further enhance their features at the hands of threading artists, who brandish strands of thin cotton to meticulously shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair. The process is quicker and gentler than traditional waxing, allowing patrons to stop by whenever they're on lunch or have placed an identically dressed mannequin at their desk.
At The Skin Bar at Bloom Studios, aesthetician Kaylynn shows her devotion to skincare by using only the gentlest, most effective professional products. Her sextet of facials draw from custom-blended Only Yourx Skin Care serums, which combat wrinkles or dryness with a high concentration of plant extracts and natural minerals. Similarly, her Cetaphil waxing services free follicles from the face, body, and bikini zone with hypoallergenic ingredients.
Because The Skin Bar is located inside Bloom Studios, patrons can benefit from the studio’s many comforts. A café fills hands with cups of coffee that may be taken to the idyllic courtyard, where patrons read or summon relaxing bird songs with free WiFi.
Along with being an accomplished singer and jazz composer, Dr. Elisa S. Mashal of Laguna Laser Hair Removal & Aesthetics has practiced dermatology medicine for more than 15 years. Within the building's private treatment rooms, she and her team of trained specialists zap away tattoos, unwanted hair, and spider veins using advanced laser technology. The Candela AlexTriVantage and GentleMax laser systems pulse at varying wavelengths to zap every pigment of ink or blemish while stimulating the growth of new, healthy cells.
Dr. Mashal and her staff also conduct microdermabrasions and facials that rejuvenate visages with Rhonda Allison skincare products. To ensure that every client receives expert care, the clinic's technicians keep their skills fresh with continuing education and pop quizzes in the middle of treatments.
Elite Laser & Spa?s stained-glass windows, large rugs, and potted plants differ from the all-white, minimalistic aesthetic of other med spas. The homey surroundings reflect owner Natasha Cambridge?s goal of creating a comfortable space where clients can relax as they receive spa services including chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and facials that use diamond particles to deeply exfoliate while softening and tightening complexions. In addition to being a licensed aesthetician, Cambridge is a certified laser technician boasting 10 years of experience with the Cynosure Alexandrite and Candela GentleLase Plus lasers, which she uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and pigmentation.
Chrissy, the registered nurse at Forever Flawless Medical Aesthetics and Laser, relies on her medical know-how as she administers beauty treatments that zap wrinkles and unwanted body hair. Her arsenal includes the Alma Harmony Pixel laser, which resurfaces complexions and increases collagen production, and an IPL device that improves pigmented blemishes with flashes of light. Beauty injections inhibit forehead furrows for months on end, and dermal fillers plump up thin lips, removing the need to get surgery or compete in boxing matches without a mouth guard.
Licensed aesthetician Adriane presides over Organically Bronzed, having turned her aesthetic talents toward airbrush tanning. She helps clients gain natural-looking, healthy glows—and it's the "healthy" part she's most concerned with. That's why she uses Norvell tanning spray, which darkens the skin with organic, plant-based ingredients. In addition to keeping clients safe from chemicals and UV rays, the spray also boasts quick dry time and wrinkle-smoothing antioxidants.
