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.
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.

Charmed Salon's experienced hair stylists, all private-contract stylists, draw in most of the clientele, but the salon is equally a destination for removing hair. European wax resins made from natural ingredients and infused with scents such as chocolate-hazelnut and rose streamline the skin of men and women, allowing them to fly farther when hurled like a frisbee. For longer-term results, Charmed's waxing specialists use Depilar, a unique enzyme-based gel that breaks down the hair follicles themselves.
In truth, there's not much in the beauty world that Charmed can't do. Aestheticians perform facials with Rhonda Allison skincare products and apply eyelash extensions, and one can always cap a visit with a massage.
The laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center help slenderize patients with the Lipo-Light laser. During the headlining treatment, patients don light- and heat-emitting pads on problem areas. The laser prompts the fat cells to release their contents for later removal through the lymphatic system?a process that can be expedited through light exercise or speed walking away from the center?s pet grizzly bear. In addition to contouring physiques, the treatment can help diminish the appearance of cellulite.
After a day spent walking around Westfield Galleria, Galleria Nails can look particularly enticing. Inside, owner Tiffany Tran and her team of licensed nail technicians pamper with massages, paraffin wax wraps, sugar scrubs, and mani-pedis. But they can do more than just groom hands and feet, they can transform them with coats of Shellac polish, 3D nail art, or hand-painted flowers that double as camouflage provided you're holding a bouquet.
