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.
At Spa Bamboo 235, beauty and the planet are held in equally high regard. That's why the spa only uses paraben-, chemical-, and fragrance-free products that do not test on animals. Spa Bamboo 235 even gives clients extra incentive to splurge on beauty?and feel extra good about it?by giving 15% off beauty products when clients recycle their old product bottles. And as for the beauty part: the spa specializes in skincare, offering services such as diamond-peel microdermabrasion, sugaring hair removal, and enzyme peels. And all facial treatments include facial massage with warm and cold stones that inspire calm, not to mention the feelings of satisfaction that come with caring for the planet instead of burning down a neighbor's wind farm.
