Led by Dr. Vadim Gurvits, the staff at Premier Laser & Day Spa is also composed of a registered nurse and licensed skincare specialist. Together, this expert crew caters to clients with everything from simple cosmetic treatments—such as waxing and microdermabrasion—to advanced laser services, including tattoo removal, vein therapy, and anticellulite treatments.
Aesthetician Mary incorporates Image Skin Care and Skin Script products into her facials to help improve problematic skin conditions. She slathers faces with a glycolic acid peel to reduce fine lines and dresses skin in a salicylic acid peel to combat acne. She also expertly waxes off unwanted hair on faces and limbs.
IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
The certified stylists at Bellezza Salon have specialties ranging from extensions and makeup to Brazilian blowouts. But when it comes to client attentiveness, they are of one mind. Before whittling away any unwanted tresses, the team consults with clients, listening to their wildest hair dreams and getting a sense of the clients' style. Then, they refurbish looks with cuts and color, sprinkling heads with professional products by Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Moroccanoil. Apart from the full menu of hair services, Bellezza Salon's versatile staff also primps clients with facials, full-body waxing, and acrylic nails.
Aesthetician and PCA Skin certified professional Heather Fowler at Renew Skin Therapy begins every session—whether a rejuvenating facial or a chemical peel—with a skin analysis. From there, she settles on the proper cleansers to tackle each client’s specific skin woes, whether the hope is to mask the signs of aging, quench dry spots, or reverse the hexes that cursed clients with chameleon skin. Each client is sent home with a tailored home regimen to optimize and prolong their facial treatment. Also offering waxing services to their repertoire, many of the spa’s chosen effective PCA Skin and Skin Fitness Therapy products are infused with natural scents and ingredients such as pumpkin, aloe vera, cranberry, and agave margarita, many of which are organic and environmentally friendly.
In 2001, the first iTan Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 20 branches around San Diego, each offering a slightly different assortment of tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and mechanical spa services.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure and the need to wear a beekeeper suit to detract from a burn. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays or tan crayons, and mechanical spa machines dispense relaxing red-light treatments, infrared-energy body wraps, and aqua massages.
The hairstyling skills of salon stalwarts Michele Saenz and Nate Siam outshine the brightest chandelier in the spacious Vizion Hair Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus salon. With a keen eye for style, an always-open ear, and scissors for hands, each stylist listens closely to clients’ ideas to help them achieve their hairstyle aspirations. Each visit begins with a personal consultation before stylists snip strands, fight frizz with Japanese straightening treatments, and enliven dulled locks with Paul Mitchell color products. Throughout the coiffure renovation process, the knowledgeable stylists also explain various styling tips, so clients can easily maintain their new looks at home.
