Guests step into private, standup Mystic spray-tan booths, where an automated system sprays a custom color solution filled with collagen and neutraceuticals across the body, much like a jaunt through a sprinkler but with even, perfect aim. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. Meanwhile, a fleet of UV beds equipped with gentle high-pressure bulbs, cooling systems, and individual music selections bronzes bodies in short bursts. Additionally, the Twilight Teeth whitening option can brighten smiles during tanning sessions in a bed or at home with easily affixed mouthpieces.

In Scott Crawford's world, fitness is everything. First drawn to the importance of healthy living during a soccer career that would see him play professionally, Scott's interest initially centered on staying fit enough to take the pitch. However, he also found himself intrigued by the psychological side of wellness. This curiosity led him to earn degrees in psychology and study in Ph.D. programs for somatic and sports psychology. Along the way, he never neglected his physical side; after his playing career ended, he earned a slew of training certifications. Soon, he held licenses in personal training, bodywork, and yoga from governing bodies ranging from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Stott Pilates to The Body Therapy Institute the White Lotus Foundation.

After cutting his teeth as a trainer at exclusive clubs and resorts throughout Texas and California, Scott finally blended his twin interests, founding SOMA Get Fit in 2007. There, he earned renown by devising custom-tailored wellness programs that combine goal-specific training with a holistic blend of mental-wellness counseling, Pilates, yoga, and nutrition education. Depending on his initial consultations, clients might sweat through adventurous sessions of beach and mountain training, ramble across forest paths on mountain bikes, or work their way through overnight retreats. This all-encompassing approach earned him a star-studded client list; past participants in his sessions include Calvin Klein, Michael Jordan, and Katy Perry. The press caught wind of his work, too, with glowing reviews appearing in the pages of Marie Claire, Sunset, and the Hollywood Reporter.

Now working with the Montecito Aesthetic Institute, Scott delivers his signature massages and bodywork treatments to clients within the center's tranquil modern treatment rooms.

The G Spa's staff, guided by Dr. Kathleen Griffin, thwarts the ravages of time with spa medicine tailored for women's needs. Practicing for more than 25 years, Dr. Griffin possesses comprehensive knowledge of the female form and all that ails it, from PMS and menopause to body-image issues caused by the unrealistic standards set by hourglasses. Nurse practitioner Dianne Sandel handles all laser treatments, women's annual exams, and engineering medical weight loss programs while medical aestheticians Jill, Monica, and Izabella complement Dr. Griffin's internal care with skin and body treatments. Among various services, the duo plumps earlobes with dermal fillers, diminishes veins with sclerotherapy, and tightens skin with laser facials. Life coach Petra Beumer rounds out the spa's offerings, rooting out the emotional and mental blockages that prevent women from losing weight or achieving their goals. The team?s combined services earned them a place as finalist for Best Medical Spa in the Santa Barbara Independent in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Professional makeup artist Patricia Guerrera has accrued 15 years of beauty experience in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Boston, where she mastered an aesthetic art that accentuates clients’ natural comeliness for special occasions. The Montecito Messenger sings Tru Beauty’s praises, crowing that the organic facial products work “instantly” and that clients feel “spoiled.” Guerrera tackles finer details with lash and brow-tint services or eyelash applications, all of which help eyes garner more attention than Sophia Loren in a clown costume. Facials cleanse the countenance with organic and high-end products, and facial or Brazilian waxes lift away unwanted fuzz. Guerrera wields upscale makeup products such as M.A.C and Benefit Cosmetics when she prepares faces for weddings, special occasions, or long stints of hiding from the mob. The thorough makeovers begin with primer and foundation, and then intensify personal pulchritude with mascara, cheek color, lipstick, and eye shadow.

Depending on their beauty goals, the clients of About Faces Salon & Spa report to one of several aesthetic divisions. Owner Denise Walden Cooper, for example, acts as the resident skincare expert. With her aesthetics team behind her, she leads the fight against blemishes and signs of aging with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. She also takes advantage of newer technologies, such as a facial add-on that uses stem cells from plants, striving to increase collagen production and allow flowers placed behind your ear to root there permanently.

Across the space, whose beige walls are accented by oversize mirrors, wooden salon stations, and shelving stocked with colorful products for sale, hairstylists craft both edgy and simple 'dos. Their Redken, Goldwell, and Pureology formulas nourish and color locks, and their complex updos prep clients for big events. Mani-pedis, waxing services, body treatments, and massages round out the salon's menu, which readily accommodates large groups and wedding parties.
