Laser hair therapy boosts hair growth through the use of cool lasers that intermingle red light with cellular metabolism, leaving each strand thicker, healthier, and hungrier. In the day spa, permanent makeup, eyelash extensions, and spray tans embellish outward appearances; meanwhile, in the hair and nail salon, services such as highlights, bridal updos, and manicures ready clients for special occasions.
With plush carpeting, decorative wall hangings, and cozy treatment rooms, Real Beauty by Parisa feels more like a welcoming home than a spa. And that's just the way owner Parisa Zandi wants it. Here, she treats her clients to personable, private services that enhance looks while setting clients at ease. She evicts unwanted hair with waxing appointments, shrinks pores and zaps fine lines with microdermabrasions, and bronzes skin with spray tans that don't leave orange streaks behind. She also wields products from IMAGE skincare, which include ingredients that decrease signs of aging such as wrinkles.

Painlessly polishing body surfaces is Dr. Nalini G. Prasad's personal mission at Laser Esthetica, which was named the Favorite Med Spa by readers of Style magazine in 2010. A licensed doctor performs all procedures at the spa, ensuring that skin coverings are as safe and protected as precious human baby teeth stored in Godzilla's mouth. Dr. Prasad boasts great experience using the state-of-the-art LightSheer and Cutera CoolGlide lasers to combat unwanted whiskers of all types, and because there's no recovery time required after each treatment, laser zaps can be easily wedged into lunch breaks or paused commercial breaks. Though 4–6 treatments are usually needed for clients to attain complete fuzz freedom, you'll notice a decrease in stray strands after each session.
