Holly and Kristin](http://gr.pn/ngY3Rf) of Elite Wellness Spa share a passion for preserving and protecting skin, but their similarities don’t end there. Both certified professionals graduated from Paul Mitchell The School’s skincare academy, and now they work side-by-side at a spa dedicated to rejuvenating skin with custom treatments and advanced implements.
Men and women alike stand to benefit from Holly and Kristin’s menu of services, which includes medical facials, exfoliating chemical peels, and gentle waxing treatments. Free of artificial fragrances and dyes, the spa’s repertoire of skincare products assists them through treatments and forms the basis for many of the at-home skincare regimens they prescribe. With more than 10 years of experience in the medical-skincare industry, Holly and Kristin draw on their collected wisdom to treat skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, sensitivity, and tattoos of caterpillars that have yet to morph into butterflies.
The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies. Though male patrons are welcome to attend in the company of a spouse or significant other, beauty specialists direct their skills toward administering facials, waxes, and homeopathic treatments to patrons with two X chromosomes or Scrabble pieces. The beauty specialists prove their dedication to creating a stress-free oasis by setting up each service with an appointment, which guarantees that each client receives the unhurried, personalized attention typically reserved for slow-motion tickle fights. Outside of her skincare business, Madison Mohrr - who recently celebrated 25 years of being cancer free - works with breast cancer awareness groups in Fresno.

Dr. Lopez and her staff aim to demystify the advanced techniques they deploy in pursuit of increasing each patient's confidence, walking them through the steps of liposuction, skin treatments, cosmetic injections, and how exactly they manage to steal and replace the noses of children.
Named the People's Choice best day spa by The Fresno Bee in 2010, Zena's Day Spa pampers guests with a full range of relaxing spa services. Zena's soaks guest in a quiet, warm, cream-colored ambience while a professional staff blasts away stress from the body like a soothing pleasure laser. During each paraffin pedicure ($60), a foot restoration expert soaks sock fillers in a whirlpool, exfoliates the skin, rejuvenates cuticles, shapes and polishes the nails, and massages the feet like tingly vibrations emanating from a massive speaker during an 80s hair band ballad sung in French. To top off pedicures, feet are infused with aromatherapy paraffin to soften dried-out skin. Next, a certified massage therapist will exorcise mischievous, knot-inducing spirits from the muscles during a 30-minute body massage ($40). Customers can also upgrade to a 30-minute couples massage for an additional $40. Potential effects of each massage may lead to relaxation, increased circulation, and the body purring like a gently petted tuba.

The beauty mavens at L'Marie smooth and tighten skin using hydrating body wraps administered to targeted areas or full bodies. In sessions lasting 30 minutes, a seaweed-and-peppermint wrap encapsulates upper arms, hips and thighs, torsos or uninspired frozen burritos in need of sprucing up. Alternatively, aestheticians can apply a whole-body coat for all-over hydration and cell detox. Masterful hands bind selected anatomy in the skin-nourishing solution before covering figures in a warm blanket to seal in the effects and ward off lonely bouquet-wielding mummies. Afterwards, staff members unwrap new birthday suits to reveal taut, freshly moisturized epidermises exhibiting a healthy, dewy glow.
