Growing up in sun-drenched Southern California, Bronzed Bunny owner Jeni Nola found herself in a bit of a paradoxical situation. Though she knew she was drawn to the beauty of radiant, sun-tanned skin, she was also wary of the dangers associated with excessive UV exposure. To resolve this tension, Nola turned to spray tanning, which she quickly realized carried its own inherent risks such as the use of harsh chemicals. Determined to find the answer, she then spent months developing Indulge, an organic, paraben-free spray-tanning solution that safely bronzes the skin while also leaving behind invigorating scents of coconut or pomegranate-mango.
Today, Jeni and her team of veteran aestheticians employ this signature formula at Bronzed Bunny, a beautification haven that also offers sugaring sessions. A fitting complement to newly bronzed skin, sugaring sessions target ingrown hairs and lift away strands in the same direction of growth—a technique that leaves the clients less prone to irritation and more prone to receiving gigs as thigh models. Other treatments offered at the boutique spa include skin-purifying facials for both the face and the body.
Amoderm Cosmetic and Wellness Medical Center president and medical director Dr. Elham Jafari has a background in neurology, which gives her a keen insight into the workings of nerves and muscles beneath the skin. She and her medical staff apply this expertise to perform brief Botox or Juv?derm injections and accurately target veins during sclerotherapy sessions. IPL photofacials pulse beams of light into the skin, stimulating the production of collagen to produce youthful elasticity without strict spandex diets. Microdermabrasion sloughs away sun damage, scarring, and fine lines without any type of abrasive spray, and is followed by a rejuvenating serum rich in ceramides and vitamins A, C, and E. Laser vein-removal treatments cause blood vessels to fade rather than growing into unwanted tattoos. Amoderm Cosmetic and Wellness Medical Center keeps flesh looking youthful with their own line of skincare products, including an anti-aging sunscreen that fights free radicals as it protects skin from further damage.

Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
