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.

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.
To fit a wide range of personalities, SoCal Nail Lounge's nail technicians file nails into a traditional oval, squoval, or square shape, or more daring stiletto-nail points after tending to hands and feet. They then apply bold colors, glitter, or nail art, drawing artistic swirls, flowers, and peacock feathers. Clients can further enhance their nails with 3-D designs, including faux crystals or extremely meta 3-D glasses.
Not all of SoCal Nail Lounge's clients are adults, so the salon has a special pedicure chair that's decorated like a pink bear and has a pink foot basin. It's perfect for youngsters there for a Mommy and Me nail makeover.
Lookfine Threading and Beauty Salon's Upland beauty professionals vanquish blemishes with contemporary techniques, including electrical microcurrent treatments and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, as well as a passion for threading, the ancient art of sculpting eyebrows into shapely arches with a cotton strand. Meanwhile, the graceful curlicues and camouflaged exam answers characteristic of henna tattoos temporarily infuse complexions with a fresh aesthetic.
AJ’s Spa Millennium has more than its extensive menu of services to thank for being named one of Fox 8's top 20 Cleveland-area day spas in 2010. The all-purpose salon and spa earned that distinction due in large part to its dedicated team of beauticians. Though they wield their scissors, brushes, and facial scrubs as effectively as anyone, the beauticians share an even more important skill: they know how to strike a perfect balance between their own input and their clients’ individual preferences.
Skilled stylists utilize relaxers and Nioxin hair-strengthening treatments to reinvent 'dos, and aestheticians keep waxing treatments thankfully brief—full Brazilians clock in at an average of only 15 minutes. But they take their time administering 1 of 15 facials, allowing clients to relax under specialty masks infused with seaweed and nourishing minerals. The spa's new collection of aromatherapy scents—which includes champagne and rose, wild honey, and grandpa—soothes the senses during massages, scrubs, and mani-pedis.
