After a family trip to Hawaii inspired Spa Escape's signature Marine Mud detoxifying mask, the spa's owners worked to build a menu of services that similarly combined relaxation with a results-driven approach. Their trained staff of therapists and aestheticians helped a great deal in this mission, calling upon years of experience to develop a range of treatments to beautify and relax the body. Though the Marine Mud mask still serves as an ever-popular anchor, the spa's menu now encompasses exfoliating facials, waxing treatments, and massage therapy. Should stresses prove insusceptible to the therapists' targeted strokes and whispered rumors that your shoulders are haunted, the spa's packages grant up to a half-day of relaxation with multiple treatments.
Smiles West's dentists and oral specialists tackle all levels of dentistry from general exams to orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic whitening. Each of the seven locations uses state-of-the-art equipment—including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays—to provide the most thorough examinations possible. During more intensive procedures, they enhance comfort by administering sedatives or sprinkling teeth with fairy dust.
SoCal Smiles Dentistry was created specifically for patients’ peace of mind. Large couches and soft pillows make the facility's waiting rooms function more as living rooms, and corridor walls sport bold blue and yellow accents. During a host of general dentistry and cosmetic procedures, patients can feel at ease inside windowed exam rooms where they are supplied with Gucci sunglasses and wiffle bats to combat the overhead lamp.
Guests entering Talega Day Spa may expect to see an Etruscan soldier emerging from a mud-and-sea-salt body wrap, or Dante Alighieri jotting down notes about the infrared sauna. The ancient Etruscan people are the inspiration for the beauty haven, as they helped introduce Western civilization to the concept of spa treatments by using the healing properties of local volcanic springs, or terme. The space—which is adorned with elegant rotundas, Renaissance-style murals, and archways that resemble Roman columns—pays homage to the culture that was responsible for shaping the art of self-preservation.
As noted in the San Clemente Times, Talega was voted the number-one day spa in San Clemente 3 years in a row, due in no small part to the talents of its attentive team. Massage therapists loosen muscles more effectively than log rolling down the hills of Tuscany, and aestheticians nourish faces with natural ingredients. After a Zerona body-contouring session or a Botox or laser skincare treatment, patrons explore amenities such as a couples treatment room, a garden-themed relaxation room, and a sunny outdoor patio.
At North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, Craig R. Huenergardt, DDS and Christopher S. Henninger, DMD use the latest industry advancements to care for teeth and gums. They employ the computer-aided 3-D technology of the CEREC machine to design and fabricate ceramic crowns in a single convenient visit. They also use this 3-D technology in placing implants for missing teeth or stabilizing dentures. The duo also uses laser energy, eliminating the heat, vibration, and cross-stitched kitten sutures associated with restorations and surgical procedures. The dentists perform cosmetic services ranging from smile-straightening Invisalign treatments to whitening and porcelain veneers, and are certified to provide conscious sedation for patients with dental anxiety or a nervous tick that involves doing the worm.
