At Spa Xclusivo, clients become the creators of their customized skin care plans––but not without a little help from the experts. Each visit starts with an analysis from a licensed aesthetician, who can make treatment recommendations and point clients towards ingredients best suited to their particular skin type and troubles. Armed with this knowledge, customers then set to work designing their very own cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and other complexion aids that will be used during one of the spa’s signature facials. From 100% natural extracts to bioengineered products, clients can pick and choose from a huge inventory of cruelty- and fragrance-free active ingredients and bases, all of which are also available for purchase for continued at-home care.
Along with facials, the spa also provides customized massages to help clients relax and waxing services for face and body to help them slide down banisters faster. Custom facials can also be paired with anti-aging treatments such as medical-grade diamond tip microdermabrasion or glycolic acid peels, while eyelash extensions add an extra-touch of glamour to each newly freshened face.
The specialists at RaVi SkinCare customize their treatments for each individual?s skin type. Facials work to sop up excess oil, blast away dry patches with a dose of hydration, or send acne into a deep slumber. The pros also paint unwanted tuffs of hair with warm wax that leaves nothing but smooth skin in its wake. Permanent-makeup services include eyeliner, lip color, and brows that would make Grouch Marx proud.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
With 12 years of experience under her belt, threading specialist Nansy Ibrahim quickly clears unwanted hair from the face and brows. She traps and removes each strand within a thin cotton thread, resulting in smoother skin without the irritation that comes from shaving or waxing.
For more than a decade, color specialist and master stylist Silvia has keep a creative watch over her team of dedicated stylists at Encino Concept Salon. Her more than 30 years of experience and international training at London Hair Academy has honed her keen aesthetic eye, which oversees a salon floor buzzing with stylists as they twirl, trim, and dye strands with botanically based products. The Bio Ionic hair-straightening system also furnishes salon services, where stylists carefully put hair through a process that aims to smooth out strands plagued by frizzes and flyaways. Hair extensions add length to manes with clip-ons of 100% human hair, and customers looking to subtract locks can recline during a waxing or threading session as a technician carefully removes unwanted hairs twisting and twirling into complicated math problems. Encino Concept Salon?s menu also promotes whole-body well-being with a refreshing European facial and spa pedicure.
To Samson Hair Restoration's physicians, hair restoration is equal measures of art and science. Although some surgeons concern themselves with follicle count and price per graft, the Samson team takes a collaborative, results-based approach, starting cases with artistic renderings of ideal scalps to give patients a clear idea of their post-op cranial canopy or what they would look like with fettuccini for hair. Staffers draw on the Quadrian hairline technique—which focuses on the front hairline to create a natural-looking coif—and plastic-surgery tricks to help to minimize donor-area scarring.
