Glenoaks Laser Center’s skilled technicians zap away signs of aging with four advanced laser systems and use Obagi skincare products to keep exteriors healthy. The heated beams of the Candela GentleLase system remove unwanted hair from any skin type, and the built-in cooling system keeps skin comfortable. The crystals floating through the SmartPeel microdermabrasion machine gently exfoliate the face as two built-in antiviral filters keep out bacteria and bellybutton lint trying to relocate to the chin. Glenoaks Laser Center prides itself on using advanced technology and creating a spa-like atmosphere through chic furnishings and elegant decor.
New Look Skin Center's cast of registered nurses and aestheticians fine-tunes epidermal appearances with an arsenal of cosmetic services. Their GentleMax PRO equipment employs beams of light to remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and skin imperfections, such as wrinkles and sunspots. Staff members can also oust unwanted spider veins before they converge and form the client's social security number. VelaShape II treatments eliminate unwanted cellulite. New Look’s range of offerings also extends to more traditional spa services, including wraps, salt-glow exfoliation, teeth whitening, and injectables.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Julia of Julia’s Beautique & Skin Care began her now nearly 30-year career at a dermatologist’s office in her native Russia. There, she learned the ins and outs of dealing with acne and other skin problems. She then moved to Israel to add to her arsenal of skills by training in European skincare. Today, Julia lives and works in LA, where she practices her own approach to skincare that combines her experience with problem skin and her mastery of European skincare techniques. She treats men, women, and teens with facials that battle acne and aging, and she also rejuvenates skin using Holy Land products. Beyond her 15 specialty facials, Julia also caters to clients' unwanted hair with body waxing and threading.
The team of cosmetic and plastic surgeons at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute understands the direct link between physical appearance and self-confidence. In their quest to collectively boost the public's self-esteem, they actively reshape and refine clients' problem areas using the industry's latest technologies—including Natrelle breast implants, natural fat transfers, Body-Jet liposuction, and nonsurgical body contouring—to create curves that parabolas could only dream of.
Many of the clinic's doctors also dedicate their efforts to reshaping the lives of those less fortunate in the community. Dr. Maurice Sherman, the clinic's chief medical officer, donates his time and talents to victims of domestic violence, and Dr. Millicent Odunze repairs cleft palates and other facial deformities as a volunteer for Operation Smile.
The aestheticians at Skin Body Lounge, deemed Best Day Spa by the 2011 LA Hotlist, aim to even skin tones, mitigate blemishes, and evict unsightly fuzz with noninvasive skincare and hair-removal services. During full-face photo-rejuvenation, nonablative lasers emit concentrated light to target specific skin pigments—including dark spots left over from acne scarring or convincing dalmatian costumes—stimulating collagen and oxygen production to destroy unwanted bacteria and leave skin radiant. Pulsed-light hair removal, Epilar biochemical solutions, and waxing services strip wayward strands. Those looking to lose inches and smooth cellulite can enlist treatments such as detoxifying body wraps and electronic muscle stimulation. Results-oriented facials are customized to the unique needs of each visage, and microdermabrasion sloughs away dead cells to improve skin tone and texture. Airbrush tanning and makeup services get clients suited up for an evening out more effectively than wearing a cutout of the Hulk's face.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
