Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Swedish Beauty and California Tan.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
Visions Salon and Spa's owner Shirley Manulak arrives at work each day determined to fulfill her customers’ cosmetic needs. “We just wanted to have a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. We want to shampoo away some of your stress,” she told Y.C. Orozco of the Pasadena Citizen. Armed with 35 years of experience as a cosmetology instructor and a skilled staff, her salon offers an array of aesthetic services, including manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling in a salon renovated after Manulak bought it two years ago. Like jazz bands that are serious about their craft, the staff steam cleans all of their instruments with autoclaves and medical-grade disinfectant.
The professionals at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva draw upon their experience as medical aestheticians and certified laser technician when performing laser and IPL procedures at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva. Therapeutic laser beams aim to reduce unwanted stubble and combat leg and facial veins. Procedures can also resurface faces, leaving behind glowing complexions so patrons can remove the reading lights clipped to their noses. And laser-free facial treatments can likewise brighten skin; these treatments include chemical peels and Vibradermabrasion.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
