Inside Valencia Salon and Spa, Jessica Richardson transforms ho-hum hairdos so they can once again emerge from hibernating under hats. Richardson and fellow stylists snip and style hair as nail technicians pamper fingers and toes, removing cuticles and adding splashes of color or crackling effects on nails. Inside private rooms, the staff rejuvenates skin with facial services and assuages muscles tense from getting stuck while crawling through doggie doors with massage services.
BA MedSpa & Weight Loss Center helps patients not only reach their desired weight but also maintain it. The center’s two-phase weight-loss program is aggressive, beginning with an 800-calorie diet—the potentially taxing effects of which are largely neutralized by the HCG injections that accompany it. Since a true lifestyle change is necessary to keep the weight off, the center then provides recipes and other instructions for establishing healthy habits.
There are other ways to improve your appearance at the clinic, too. Clients stop in for aesthetic services, such as wrinkle-reducing beauty injections, laser-administered facials, and hair-removal treatments. They also undergo permanent cosmetic applications, which allow them to wake up each morning with flawlessly drawn eyebrows, perfectly lined lips, and incredibly well-hidden butterfly-kissing scars.
Backed by more than a quarter century of experience, Salon 71's expert staff smooth womanly and manly skin surfaces with indulgent Alexandria Professional sugaring treatments. During the procedure, a fresh batch of lukewarm sugar paste is spread onto unwanted hair, then gently lifted to sweep away entire follicles and stray tumbleweeds without leaving a sticky residue. Sugaring upends stubble in the direction of hair's natural growth to exfoliate skin and foster a more comfortable depilation. Salon 71's all-natural formula fends off forestation for up to six weeks, producing results that last longer than many other hair-removal techniques such as waxing or belt sanding.
It's easier to make a good first impression when you look someone in the eyes. ReNew You Massage & Spa’s massage therapist, Bre Thibodaux, prefers to focus her attention on backs as she relieves stress and assuages pain with a diverse spread of massage styles. Along with her massage specialties—the gentle strokes of Swedish and the more intense pressure of deep-tissue massage—Thibodaux can manipulate pressure points on the feet during reflexology sessions to balance systems throughout the body, or improve the body's natural energy flow with reiki treatments. To complement massages, aesthetician Emily Eastman can refine physiques with spa treatments. Her facials and peels address skin conditions from acne to signs of aging, and waxing services eradicate stubble without the hassle buying a razor or domesticating a lawnmower.
It would be easy to spend an entire day or three inside Clary Sage Salon & Spa, and not just for the mod leather seats and fluffy throw pillows. The main reason: Clary Sage's extensive menu of services. Here, clients can get a quick chair massage or ease into a 90-minute hot-stone massage, adding a scalp massage, foot treatment, and even chocolate to the relaxing service. They can then rejuvenate their skin with a deluxe facial, an enzyme peel, or a makeup application, then treat nails to colorful, long-lasting OPI polish. They can also spruce up hair with cuts, color, and updos or remove unwanted hair with waxing services.
Co-owners Jaclyn Beighle and Tiffany Brown use their beauty expertise to take care of all hair and skin issues. They cut and color hair on men, women, and Cabbage Patch Kids in need of a makeover. They also remove unwanted hair from the face and body with warm wax. On the spa side of the business, facials refresh mugs, and massages loosen knotted muscles.
