In a way, Aubree Jackson's education just began when she finished school. Although she received her aesthetician's license a decade ago, Aubree has plowed through a multitude of continuing-education courses, picking up enough certificates to merit a fifth office wall. She’s honed her skills in skin nutrition, jessner peels, Dermalogica skincare, diamond-peel microdermabrasions, and even thai massage.
Inside Love Your Skin Day Spa, these diverse practices culminate into a sweeping service menu of facials, body wraps, and cosmetic treatments. Hot oil and hand treatments complement the ultimate european facial—a relaxing treatment that brings out healthy skin color—whereas the hydra-derma facial combines a deep-cleansing facial, diamond peel, photorejuvenation facial, and neck and shoulder massage into a skin-spoiling treatment that could soften the face of the Lincoln Memorial. Love Your Skin Day Spa also offers body polishes, nourishing mud wraps, and permanent makeup services.
Sassy's Salon & Spa has been designed as a cozy, tranquil beauty haven. Red accent walls and bright-blue artwork give the salon space a cheerful vibe, and candle sconces light the way to the intimate pedicure area. There, guests relax in cushioned thrones equipped with whirlpool soaking tubs, which are ideal for testing the aerodynamics of toes' newly installed tail fins. In the spa area, a pastel-yellow theme and a painting with a warm, red-and-orange hue invite relaxation during treatments such as antioxidant-infused facials and soothing massages.
This dedicated team educates their clients on the importance of aesthetic maintenance while keeping exteriors looking shiny and new. Experienced aestheticians combat epidermal bullies, from acne to fowl-mouthed fine lines, with organic facials and microdermabrasion. Peepers find more definition with lash tinting and by banishing stray brow hairs with strip or stripless wax. Folsom's resident manicurist, Anna Marsaiq, tends to fingertips and toes with natural mani-pedi services and OPI gel polish, and the spa's massage practitioner, Jennifer Kinjo customizes each massage by combining traditional Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point modalities to create a nurturing experience. The modern space further instills a sense of calm with the contemporary artwork lining the walls and the chic paper lanterns illuminating the crimson-red and neutral-tan color scheme throughout the spa.
The certified laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center, under the guidance of Dr. TJ Maroon, help slenderize patients with the Lapex BCS LipoLaser. 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 and stretch marks.
California Lipo Laser Center's technicians target fat and cellulite with Lipo-Light body contouring treatments. During the 20-minute signature treatment, LED light therapy targets arms, thighs, or backs, causing fat cell membranes to lose their shape, which changes cell permeability and ultimately breaks down fatty acids. Temporary inch loss and the ability to use pants for shelter may occur after one session, though a series of nine treatments performed across a three-week period is recommended for optimal results. To complement its LipoLaser service, the center also offers whole-body vibration, nutritional counseling, and detoxification treatments.
The stylists at Studio 4 Hair & Nails know that not everyone can pull off the same ponytail or pixie cut. That’s why they tailor their services to individual clients, finding the most flattering style for each face and proceeding to call it into existence with shears and professional coloring products.

Nail technicians are also on hand to help nails glisten with options that range from chip-resistant Gel polish to full acrylic sets.
