When the surface of skin becomes rough, it can make faces look uneven and prevent refreshing nutrients from doing their work. Aesthetician Jessica Lockard specializes in exfoliating treatments that combat rough skin, using diamond-tip wands, peels, body scrubs, and resurfacing agents to unearth more youthful epidermal layers. These treatments precede facials and other spa services, such as airbrush tans. Her treatments also include an education portion, in which she teaches clients how to keep their skin healthy at home by maintaining a safe distance from flesh-eating viruses. In addition to skin treatments, Jessica offers waxing for both men and women, as well as lash and brow retouching services.
The healing services offered by Chene Watson run the gamut—from traditional treatments, such as deep-tissue and Swedish massage, to music therapy with the 26-string Celtic harp. Certified by the state of California and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, Watson has a knowledge of varying massage modalities that’s as deep as the ocean’s resentment of the sky. Watson often mixes and matches styles during treatment to create a completely customized experience.
Founder Debora Jackson emphasizes the s at the end of Therapeutic Solutions. She and her pampering team have amassed a wide roster of spa services under the umbrella of a single goal: total relaxation. Whether they are coaxing facial features into a peachy glow, swaddling physiques in exfoliating body wraps, or thawing superglue-covered snowballs from backs with hot-stone massage, the staff mold their many treatments to suit each client's needs.
Chelsea, a licensed aesthetician and owner of Bare Skin by Chelsea, specializes in facial and body waxing services.

Named after the colorful bracelets that jangle on the wrists of many Indian women, Ruby’s Bangles gives its patrons an opportunity to partake in ancient Eastern beauty rituals. In the spa, aestheticians use eyebrow threading techniques inspired by Egyptian beauty rituals to remove unwanted hair. Skilled henna artists can transform hands and feet with dramatic plant-ink designs. The store's boutique boasts a wide selection of Indian-inspired jewelry, including bindis, necklaces, bangles, and hip chains for belly dancing or keeping prank-prone jeans from running away.
Long before she opened Spa Lux, Sara Bagley braved the demands of the retail world, never letting the long and hectic hours distract her smile and sincere appreciation for her customers? needs. A spark of curiosity led her to the Federico Beauty Institute, where her interests in skincare bloomed into passions as she soaked up training in facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
Though her career has since moved away from retail, Sara remains ever in tune with her customers' desires. Her cheery disposition and enthusiasm for skincare are equally embodied in Spa Lux, a chic salon and spa where she and her staff draw on their collective wisdom to dote upon complexions and brush away the nests of tattooed sparrows.
Sara's customer-first philosophy is nowhere more evident than in the spa?s roster of facials, each of which the aestheticians customize to meet the client's skin type. Image Skincare products lead the charge of antioxidants and skin brighteners, and Clarisonic?s Sonic Skin Cleansing System promotes healthy tones while reversing inverted dimples.
