The team of licensed beauty mages at Maximum Image Salon & Day Spa conjures elegant countenances and easy confidence with a slew of skin-care services. Hour-long European facials focus on flooding arid skinscapes with moisture to deeply cleanse, gently exfoliate, and prevent the type of feature-sliding erosion that plagued so many Picasso models. Inside the warm, pumpkin-hued treatment rooms, clarifying steam, a cleanse, a mask, extractions, a gentle massage with skin-care products, and decollete work coax clogged pores to finally release grime hidden deep within the dermal layer, imbuing faces with a fresh, clean, trustworthy glow. An arm massage rounds out the treatment. Clients should plan to arrive 15 minutes early in order to have time to suit up in a fluffy robe, lounge on the lobby's leather couch with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea, and exchange hair-styling secrets with the waiting room's thick shag area rug.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
In each of Elements Therapeutic Massage's private treatment rooms, dim lighting and soft music complement the scents of oils or lotions as licensed massage therapists brandish their body-focused expertise. The professionals ply tension from muscles with a variety of modalities, including Swedish, prenatal, and sports massage, which uses focused pressure and stretching techniques to ease pain stemming from field injuries or from bench-pressing sports writers. To customize therapies to every patient, Elements' unique level system outlines four tiers of massage pressure to help clients to more easily communicate with their therapists about their preference for a light relaxation massage or a firmer, deeper treatment.
A decade of practice has strengthened the skills of Joshua Stockton, the namesake therapist behind Rejuvenation Massage Therapy by Joshua. He customizes his Swedish and deep-tissue treatments to each client in packages that last 60, 70, or 90 minutes. To make the experience both restorative and pleasant, Joshua strives to make the setting for his massages as relaxing as a nap on a boat in the middle of Lake Tranquility.
Helmed by Dr. Javier Rios, a physician who specializes in cosmetic skin treatments, Magnolia Skincare refurbishes skin with laser technology, microdermabrasion, and injectable treatments. Spider veins flee following sclerotherapy injections, and bursts of Botox and Restylane soften wrinkles without hanging faces on a clothesline. Cutera lasers penetrate below the skin to remove fuzz and reduce fine lines while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed, and Fraxel lasers combine the effectiveness of ablative laser systems with the gentleness of nonablative machines in order to shrink acne scars and age spots.
At Derma Spa, an experienced staff of talon tamers pampers hands and feet into a state of buttery bliss. Hands get unharried with a signature manicure, which begins with an exfoliation of the feelers and forearms before a dip into a clay or paraffin mask leaves them silky and unrecognizable to bruised, vengeful pluots. Next, the talented techs dispatch cracked cuticles and cleanse and shape the nails before painting and polishing your phalange tips in any of the yet-conceptualized colors. Toes are similarly treated to a tip touch-up, starting with an aromatherapy soak and mask designed to soften skin and remove smell lines, and a foot massage preps pads to reassume their roles as loyal leaf crunchers. Afterward, toes will be likewise treated with a shaping, polishing, and painting, and stubborn calluses are callously banished to dermal oblivion.
