Hairapy Studios' founder joined the words hair and therapy as homage to the business's specialty services: hair styling, lash extensions, threading, and waxing. Guests can also solicit one of the salon's skilled aestheticians for a specialty makeup application.
Drawing from more than 25 years of experience working in the med-spa and cosmetic-surgery field, Kathleen Rocca harnesses her knowledge and skills as a clinical aesthetician at her own skincare and anti-aging haven: Eastlake Rejuvenation Center. Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.
In addition to helping area residents look and feel better, Rocca stays involved with her community on a grander scale, sharing beauty advice on Fox 6 news and serving as the president of the Bonita Business & Professional Association.
In 2001, the first iTan Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 20 branches around San Diego, each offering a slightly different assortment of tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and mechanical spa services.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure and the need to wear a beekeeper suit to detract from a burn. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays or tan crayons, and mechanical spa machines dispense relaxing red-light treatments, infrared-energy body wraps, and aqua massages.
Malahini Day Spa uses everything from aromatherapy to papaya to ensure each customer looks like they’re time traveling during signature facials. During the photorejuvenation time-machine treatment, a mask aims to boost collagen production by 50%, firming skin and reducing melanin production to create the illusion of younger skin. Along with facials and microdermabrasion treatments, the spa's skilled staff also performs soothing massages, body wraps, and waxing services.
Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio ensures its clients feel beautiful from head to toe. Starting at the top, facials and microdermabrasion treatments clear dirt and debris from the pores to keep skin looking clean and youthful. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair from limbs and torsos and spray tanning leaves skin with an even glow. Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio also caters to groups with bridal services and pamper parties, during which friends bond over facials and debate which Supreme Court justice would win a nine-way wrestling match.
