Zen Garden Skincare sprung from simple origins, when skilled aesthetician Susan Morris began treating clients to facials and spa treatments in her house. Today, Susan has set up shop in her own private studio at the Healy Sunset Building where she provides an array of professional skincare services from body waxing to chemical peels. Customers recline on cushy beds as Susan administers facials, smoothing skin and diminishing wrinkles using hydrating algae and marine-plant-infused formulas. Tending to everyone with her pampering ministrations, she even offers specialty facial and waxing services for men and wooden puppets who wish they were men. During many of her facials, Susan further soothes clients with hand, face, neck, and shoulder massages.

Love My Skin offers spa and medical skin care treatments that are customized to address each client's individual needs. On the spa side of things there are treatments like the red carpet ready O2 facial, which pits oxygen, plant-derived stem cells, and enzymatic botanicals against blemishes or skin damaged from always trying to examine one's own face without a mirror. Love My Skin also offers more advanced forms of skin care that use medical-grade solutions and techniques. One of these is the BodyFX by InModeMD, a non-invasive contouring treatment that leaves buttocks, abdomen, and thighs looking toned and well-shaped.
Access Wellness Center beautifies patients with an arsenal of noninvasive medical procedures, cosmetic treatments, and holistic healing. Staffers firm up sagging stomachs with Cellu M6 Lipomassage treatments and perform noninvasive face-lifts to invigorate drooping cheeks without the use of surgery or a troupe of standup comedians. They also assuage aches with endermotherapy treatments and bring chakras into balance with holistic-healing methods that incorporate energy awareness and meditation.
Like a good relationship or a flower with a fertilizer addiction, Shador is growing. The staff of sugaring experts and aestheticians recently migrated to a new space, which has meant an upgrade in facilities and the ability to offer massages. Each service, from botanically based detoxifying body wraps to custom facials, helps to beautify and relax clients. For hair removal, the staff eschews the discomfort of hot wax in favor of a natural sugaring serum that pulls hair out in the direction of growth, and favored strands are magnified through the individual application of synthetic or mink eyelash extensions.
