While many med spas have only a single doctor at the helm, Kýma Med Spa & Anti-Aging Center boasts a team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, laser technicians, and muscular therapists to ensure treatments are administered with appropriate expertise. Dr. Jack Zamora guides the med spa's medical half, overseeing a range of cosmetic procedures such as Botox and eyelid surgery. The center's massage therapists and skincare specialists, meanwhile, take a noninvasive approach to beauty, soothing and smoothing skin with eight varieties of massage, prescription-strength facials, and medical-grade pats on the back.

From inside a charming sidewalk storefront, Hernan Salon teleports stress through indulgent cuticle-pampering services. During the one-hour spa manicure, experienced nail technicians wean worry, stress, and temporary tattoos of Jane Austen book covers from hands and arms by lobbing smooth, flowing strokes over muscles, tissue, and tendons. Next, as eyes wander to the autumnal colors fluttering outside the paned glass, the tech preps cuticles with an exfoliating scrub that scours dead skin from fingertips. Nails are then gently trimmed and delicately shaped into clients' favorite Disney on Ice character. After nail connoisseurs buff and soak the nail canvass, it is ready for polish and color, which can be as adventurous as an alluring scarlet hue or as conventional as a crustless peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich. To accommodate a rainbow of preferences, the salon owner will order an out-of-stock polish shade at the clients' request when they schedule their appointment. If guests long for an extra smidgeon of indulgence, they may add a paraffin treatment for $10.
Forbici Salon and Spa combines soft lighting with years of enlightening experience coddling and pampering reticent and weary bodies. Clients longing to approximate bioluminescence can find satisfaction in the 90-minute sweet-milk and lavender-bud facial, a renewing treatment that tends to both the face and the extremely delicate extremities. Astute aestheticians employ a paraffin mask in conjunction with Farmaesthetics' organic Nourishing Lavender Milk to moisturize pores plagued by desert nightmares. Soothing lavender aromas soak facial skin in soporific relief, wafting into the nasal glands to mollify the harried and oft-neglected internal face. A swift hand and foot massage runs in tandem with the facial indulgence, leaving tips renewed and radiant after a warm, welcoming dip in paraffin.

Spa Ujala’s aestheticians strive to reinvent clients' appearances through custom combinations of organic or botanically derived products. During the facial treatments, they can slather cheekbones with antioxidant-filled seaweed, organic mud masks, or balms with enough vitamin C to get through the next orange strike. The spa's body wraps also seek to leave skin soft and vibrant by first nourishing it in a bath of coconut, mung bean, and lavender. For an even more tactile experience, the massage therapists unravel knots near the surface of muscles by using gentle, flowing Swedish strokes. They also utilize deep-tissue techniques or hot stones to delve a bit further into the musculature.
