For Dr. Goodnight, it's not about instant results: "I want to be able to get together with my patients when we’re all in our 90s to talk about what a wonderful life we’ve all had and how great we still feel and look." To that end, he joins his wife, Marianne, a certified nurse, in taking a whole body approach to long-term beauty.
Dr. Goodnight trained at UCLA and is a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon. While always looking for the least-invasive option, he uses a combination of technologies to help patients reach their desired goals. But the transformations don't end in the treatment room. As certified fitness trainers, the husband and wife team educates clients on how to increase their health through nutrition, exercise, and avoiding open manholes.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
La Stella Beauty Clinic?s beauty professionals combine personalized skincare with advanced cosmetology technologies to leave adults? and teens? skin glowing. Custom facials infused with multivitamins and organic botanicals refresh skin without irritation or the need to nap under the vegetable misters at a local supermarket. Organic and chemical peels help rejuvenate faces by exfoliating outer layers of dead and damaged skin cells, revealing healthier, younger-looking skin.
The technicians at Ageless Beauty Spa combat the effects of time with a menu of high-tech treatments. They harness the power of intense pulsed light to minimize the appearance of sun spots and use mechanical exfoliation to buff away acne, stretch marks, and misplaced bumper stickers. Endermologie treatments work to break down cellulite structures and beauty injections help relax the muscles responsible for laugh lines, frown furrows, and crow's feet.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Stress can arrive unannounced on weekdays or weekends, which is why Ridgewood European Day Spa keeps its doors open seven days a week. Since 1990, the spa's menu has refreshed minds and bodies with services such as relaxing Swedish massages, microdermabrasion treatments that reduce signs of aging, and seaweed body wraps that disguise clients as giant pieces of sushi. Clients who can't decide on just one treatment can schedule one of Ridgewood's spa packages.
