Since its founding team consists of a full-fledged doctor of osteopathic medicine and a medical aesthetician, Lea's Aesthetics rolls out a list of beauty services more akin to that at a plastic surgery center than a spa. Powerful chemical peels, medical-grade fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm, and even hormone therapy are on the menu, along with gentler facials. To add a bit of glamour to faces after they've been revitalized, aestheticians also provide eyelash extensions and brow tinting.
Dr. Ben Childers heads a team of expert aestheticians as they smooth skin and oust impurities with minimally invasive HydraFacial treatments. During the treatment, a gentle HydraFacial machine sweeps across the skin's surface, purging pores of oil and cheek gophers. Melding microdermabrasion and hydration, the treatment extracts impurities and adds moisture to the skin before fortifying facades with an antioxidant treatment. Visages emerge revitalized, with potential benefits including diminished fine lines and improvement in the appearance of skin conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation. For optimal results, Sheer Beauty recommends undergoing the HydraFacial three to six times at six-week intervals and not coating your face in pollen and sticking your head in a beehive.
Aesthetician and licensed cosmetologist Laura boasts a 100% success rate with clients that follow her acne program after receiving a problem-skin facial. Treating acne is one of her specialties, and she gets such great results due to her 15 years' experience and stints at a variety of spas. Now her own boss at A Skin Care Affair, Laura offers a slate of services that include facials, peels, airbrush tanning, and waxing, using brands such as Epicuren, Advanced Rejuvenating Concepts Skincare, and Image Skincare to beautify clients.
The studio at Javier's Hair Salon and Day Spa strikes a bold visual impression, what with the black-leather styling chairs, brushed-metal accents, and a natural-wood floor that resembles wave-washed sand—all set against a blue wall. This artistic statement mirrors the approach of Javier Campos and his team—including stylist Pamela Coder— who style women's, men's, and children's hair with salon services such as haircuts, coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments. The staff's expertise further extends to aesthetic and spa services, such as facials, mani-pedis, waxing, and massage.
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.
