Crystal Vargas knows that beauty is more than skin-deep. That’s why the licensed aesthetician doesn’t haphazardly slather her client’s skin with a few lotions and call it a day. Instead, she uses custom skincare regimes to boost confidence, and ultimately beauty, from the inside out. Crystal doles out face and body treatments, from a refreshing facial that uses steam to restore skin’s natural glow to designer peels that gradually diminish pigmentation. She also helps newly rejuvenated skin really steal the spotlight with waxing treatments for the face and body, and cancan lessons for shy legs.
Situated in a historic neighborhood under the shadow of Sequoia National Park, Liza's Day Spa steeps the senses in tranquility with essential-oil aromas, Asian-inspired décor, and the sounds of burbling water. Skilled massage therapists mend tense backs with modalities ranging from Swedish and deep tissue to shiatsu and craniosacral, each helping to eradicate tension, chronic pain, and ill feelings toward mouthy shoulder blades. In a bath of warm, polished stones, patrons wiggle digits to prep them for the gentle shaping and polishing of hot-stone mani-pedis, and diamond-tipped microdermabrasion and custom facials help exfoliate and hydrate the skin.
