Licensed acupuncturist Julia Sanfilippo performs each treatment surrounded by stockpiles of knowledge that she accumulated while earning a master of science in traditional oriental medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Rejuvenating treatments entail the insertion of fine needles into acupuncture points on the face, neck, and around the eyes. By stimulating facial muscles in strategic spots, Sanfilippo aims to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and imbue skin with the tone of an extremely fit porcupine. Although most patients leave looking more youthful after a single session, multiple sessions are typically recommended (sometimes as many as 10 for best results). After needles are removed, a massage soothes the face, scalp, and hands to prepare them to fend off droves of admiring woodland creatures.
For the staff at Cove Wellness, a day at the spa isn't just about relaxation. It's also about prevention. Without proper attention, bodily ailments and stress can snowball into something bigger, and so the spa's therapists have made it their goal to help clients bring bodies and spirits back into balance. Believing detoxification to be the most natural and direct way to promote wellness from within, their three-step Signature of La Jolla Detox treatment combines bioenergetic lymphatic therapy, colon hydrotherapy, and a lymphatic-detox footbath to rid clients of accumulated waste and recharge the immune systems. Cellulite-reduction therapy helps promote smoother contours by boosting lymphatic drainage, and acupuncture helps clear energy blockages and boost circulation, bringing possible relief to ailments such as migraines, insomnia, sciatica, and restless ankle syndrome.
Armonia Skin Care's staff of skilled face whisperers performs medical-grade skin treatments in a soothing spa setting. Pamper hard-grinning mugs with your choice of seven facials, each custom-tailored to your individual skinprint. The spa's signature customized fitness facial refines skin condition, and the microdermabrasion facial softens fine lines and gently sandblasts away ghosts of blemishes past. An oxygen facial harnesses the mask-beautifying powers of aether, or give your gourd the sexy flickering glow of a pouty jack o' lantern with the pumpkin delight facial. Mad scientists will feel more comfortable with the innovative micro-current facial, which delivers a low level of safe electricity to stimulate circulation and clear the complexion. The balancing back facial treats the body's often underappreciated dorsal visage with a deep cleansing and exfoliation. Put the polish on the cake with $10 off any nail service; hand-buffing manicures start at $18.

Putting clients first, the experienced stylists and estheticians lend personal attention to every customer, making sure styles are on-trend and suited to the individual’s particular taste, personality, and love of beehives.

With its start in haircare more than a quarter-century ago, Model Call Salon continues to pamper clients with hair-and-beauty treatments fueled by brand-name products such as Number 4 Hair, Bumble and bumble, L'Oréal Professionnel, and Unite. Each service in the salon or spa starts off with a one-on-one consultation during which clients discuss what they want their hair to look like, their skin to feel like, or their eyebrows to furrow like. Hairstylists at both locations boast extra certifications beyond their years of hands-on experience and participate in continuing education to stay current in hair-design trends. When it comes to spa treatments, aestheticians improve skin with paraffin treatments, microdermabrasion, and facials, and perform tanning services to help clients walk out feeling more confident than when they arrived.
