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.
With a choice of eight facials and a wide menu of body treatments, it's clear how serious the team at New Vogue Beauty is about helping clients look their best. Their offerings are unique particularly in the way they combine time-tested beauty regimens with advanced technology. The detox face-lifting facial, for one, combines a traditional European facial with LED light therapy to improve skin's elasticity. Then there's the Lipo Vacuum System, which helps reduce inches in the waist and thighs and requires no recovery time. New Vogue Beauty also brings to the table non-surgical breast-enhancement treatments that use seven different technologies, including radio frequency and massage, to encourage deep relaxation and looseness in the muscles.
The aestheticians at Brow & Beauty Bar have a particularly unique collection of talents. They specialize in threading?an ancient treatment that removes unwanted facial hair using a gentle cotton thread?and excel at applying eyelash extensions and makeup. They also extend their expertise toward comprehensive facials and treatments that smooth, cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. During henna tattoo applications, they paint bodies in intricate temporary designs, such as ornamental flowers or Sunday crossword puzzles. As the stylists bustle about the airy salon, customers recline on cushy black chairs or await appointments on a sleek red couch.
Robert Wagner—the owner of Maxwell's Salon of London—leads a team of stylists and colorists as they beautify clients in a space tucked just below the scenic Turtle Rock foothills. Featured on KTLA News, Robert's team crafts elegant styles and maintains manes with a variety services. To help to ensure that clients depart with shimmering strands, the team uses products from Brazilian Blowout, Loreal Professional, and Moroccan Oil, rather than found glitter from the local disco-ball factory.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Threading is an age-old beauty technique, yet to this day it remains one of most popular (and least painful) ways to remove hair. At Yuva Threading Salon, trained aestheticians use threads to gently lasso and uproot stray peach fuzz wherever it crops up. This simple and effective method eschews harsh chemicals, as well as lasers that might veer off course and accidentally blow up the sun.
Yuva isn't just a threading salon, though. The beauty spot also offers a range of facials, massages, and nail services, as well as traditional waxing for more hirsute areas. In keeping with its mission to combine Eastern and Western beauty practices, Yuva also offers non-permanent henna tattooing that decorates skin in beautifully intricate designs.
