Lincoln Avenue Spa stocks only high-quality herbs, oils, and skin products for its services. Calistoga has garnered fame for its mud baths, so Lincoln Avenue Spa takes advantage of its locale with Moor mud and body mud treatments. Their jacuzzi baths and massages relax the corpus, and exfoliating salt scrubs leave skin as soft and radiant as a feather boa set aflame.
Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
Traditionally, the exclamation “ooh la la!” is reserved for moments that blend luxuriousness and surprise. Comments like that often fill the air at Ooh La La Salon and Day Spa, where a team of stylists and technicians delivers pampering treatments that span the entire beauty spectrum. At 14 hair stations, stylists help clients part with unwanted length and say hello to new hues. Treatment rooms provide privacy during massages and facials, and a small fleet of nail stations set in alcoves welcomes the polish-illuminating light of nearby chandeliers. Guests can also top off looks with cosmetic services including makeup applications and airbrush tans.
Minx Salon and Spa’s owner, Maddison Bell, stockpiles nine years of experience as a stylist and colorist and shares that knowledge through her work as an artistic educator for Matrix Professional haircare. Maddison and her talented, professional team perfect hair, massage, skincare, and nail services within the comforts of a charming home. The two-story building was made in the early 1900s in the American Craftsman style, an architectural movement that lost steam in the '30s after the Great Depression triggered the Hooverville fad. The modern furnishings and contemporary interior décor follow a sleek black-and-white color scheme with elegant chandeliers hanging over hairstyling stations, luxurious pedicure chairs, and six spa-treatment rooms.
Jennifer Lynn Kinjo knows the benefits of colon hydrotherapy from personal experience. In order to fix the digestive issues she had experienced all her life, Jennifer spent eight years receiving the treatments. They were so successful that Jennifer set out to learn the techniques of colon hydrotherapy herself. After graduating from the Internal Environment Institute in Santa Monica, becoming certified by the International Association of Colonic Hydrotherapy, and learning how to rub her stomach while patting her head, Jennifer now shares this life-changing therapy—which is said to cast out toxins and improve digestive health—with others in her private studio at Sierra Health and Wellness.
Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
