Rejuvenating Day Spa offers a retreat from the daily ritual of work, family, and pole-vaulting through your bedroom window with an indulgent array of beautification services.

At Omega Laser and Skin Care, a staff of deft depilators harnesses the hair-hampering powers of cosmic light to annihilate rogue follicles on each client's overgrown area of choice. Laser light is a quick and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively banishing unwanted bristle and leaving less opportunity for saving food crumbs on your person. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods such as shaving, waxing, or electrolysis.

While guests help themselves to complimentary snacks and beverages, Sharlan, Gayla, and the rest of the styling team devise ways to treat tangled strands with professional Goldwell, Fudge for Hair, and Schwarzkopf products.
Across the salon floor, spa technicians brush nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, lavish skin with facials, and extend lashes to facilitate more dramatic winking.
