Helene Corrales is a good neighbor. As a resident of the community for more than 30 years, she understands which skincare treatments and massage services tend to appeal to the area's locals. Inside Helene's Body & Skin Care, she helms a team comprised of medical professionals, a massage therapist, and a licensed aesthetician. A collection of facial treatments attacks acne, oil, and signs of aging. Four massage modalities target tension in different ways, from foot-based reflexology to shiatsu massage, which focuses on the body's pressure points and ignores the body's emergency stop button.
Dr. Nazila Doroodian and her team of dental hygienists pamper grins with modern technology and spa-like amenities designed to keep clients comfortable and relaxed. Guests slip their hands into paraffin gloves as their backs undulate to the beat of a massage mat's rolling strokes. During the exam and cleaning, hygienists maneuver intraoral cameras to discover decay and lost lottery tickets before gently sweeping away debris and snapping a few low-radiation digital x-rays.
Fluc stands for Food Lovers United Company, which is fitting considering the breadth of options the food-delivery specialists offer. But Fluc isn't an ordinary delivery service: it lets diners choose from hundreds of restaurants and ensures wait-times of no more than 45 minutes, plus, there are no minimums on orders. Additional features include group-ordering, letting multiple people add and subtract from orders on different devices, and advanced ordering for up to one year from now. There's no need for dollar bills or IOU's either—transactions are conducted completely online from start to finish.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Umang Mehta may specialize in rhinoplasty and other facial and eye surgeries, but his practice’s treatment list extends far beyond these services. He and his staff, including a licensed aesthetician, also deliver wrinkle fillers, laser cosmetics, and peels. After visits, complexions leave youthful and glowing like a phosphorescent corsage on prom night, and testimonials reveal that clients appreciate the team’s friendliness as much as they value their aesthetic expertise.
Whether a client needs a trendy long bob or glamourous 1940s-style finger waves, The Paul Mitchell–educated stylists at Le Burge’t Salon know how to do it. They create current and classic looks with haircuts, full-head lighteners, ink overlays, and permanent-wave texturizing treatments. The beauty experts at the salon also even out skin tone with airbrush makeup and remove unwanted facial hair during threading treatments. They perform these services and others for the Warrior Girls, the Golden State Warrior's professional bodyguards.
Dr. Manjul Dixit specializes in helping people to lose unwanted things, whether they're allergies, asthma attacks, or inches. At Body Sculpt Clinics, she and her team use ultrasonic lipo treatments to target fat cells in clients' problem areas—the stomach, thighs, or hips, for example. They also perform radio frequency skin-tightening treatments, which firms up loose skin through noninvasive means, rather than with surgery or scotch tape.
