The skincare professionals at La Dene Studio tackle blemishes and sagging skin with treatments that incorporate both natural ingredients and technology-based approaches. Depending on a client’s skin type and concerns, the experts might recommend a facial with botanic components such as seaweed, papaya enzymes, or vitamin C, or they might target sun damage with a glycolic-acid peel. Other intense treatments range from the deep exfoliation of microdermabrasion to microcurrent and ultrasonic facials, which both diminish fine lines. In addition, the studio’s aestheticians wax away the hair that collects on the body while wrestling with a bear during its shedding time.
SkiNplicity’s aesthetician De Ana Fritz brings more than a decade of skincare experience to her treatment of overly dry, oily, or hirsute exteriors. The one-hour European facial commences with a client consultation to craft a specialized strategy for shucking a worn-out face husk. A change into a clean gown protects vestments from spotting, while an optionally heated bed protects back muscles from tension. After cleansing, exfoliating, purifying, massaging, and de-gunking with an individualized masque, a hydrating spritz and SPF cream guard visages against the sun and its plot to turn the earth into a cache of human jerky.
A Paul Mitchell Partner School, The California Academy tends to the talents of student tress tamers and skin sparklers with a range of supervised hair, wax, and skincare services. The 8,500-square-foot training facility excavates unwanted hairs with waxing of the eyebrows ($10), chin ($7), or back ($30). A 30-minute pumpkin resurfacer ($45) smoothes, renews, and brightens the complexion without the embarrassment of taking an entire pie to the face. Students manipulate manes with everything from a basic cut and style ($12+), which comes with a five-minute stress-relieving scalp treatment, to a perm ($30+) or full highlight ($40+).
The benevolent body bufferers at The White Orchid Salon & Spa are expertly trained to transform skin owners into an indestructible engine powered solely by bliss. First, hand over your fore-pores to the licensed aesthetician, who will administer a thorough European facial (starting at $80). The relaxing procedure, carefully tailored to your skin type, will clean and exfoliate the skin, leaving it bright, healthy, and free of expired mothballs. The relaxation train forges forward with a calming, tension-nullifying one-hour Swedish massage ($60). Using light to medium pressure, the certified therapist will knead achy muscles throughout the corpus using long, slow strokes, thereby restoring your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
