The staff at Shear-Lock Combs West takes the mystery of out fixing hair and skin issues. Scissors tear through split ends and unwanted length in a single snip, and facials gently erase acne and fine lines. The beauty pros also apply glamorous makeup that can last through weddings, dances, and triathlons. In addition to this meticulous attention to the face, Shear-Lock ensures the rest of the body isn't neglected with a host of full-body treatments. They offer chair and full-body massages, waxing for the bikini zone and legs, and give skin a sun-kissed glow with custom spray-tan formulas.
Pacific Beach's Beauty Angel treatment pairs beautification and physique sculpting in a series of 10-minute sessions combining light therapy, vibration, and platform-based exercise. Within the stand-up booth, clients bask in a safe red light that works to reawaken the body's collagen and elastin factories, disentangling wrinkles around the eyes and firming skin across the entire physique. The booth sports a vibrating platform designed to help break down cellulite and further stimulate epidermal collagen production. The vibrating motion also facilitates muscle toning and recovery by relaxing fibers. After seven daily sessions over one week, wrinkles may begin to diminish, cellulite may begin fade, and skin may begin smooth out, negating the need to seek eternal youth in every municipal fountain.
Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
The staff of Aesthetic Specialists at LAesthetic wield a variety of cutting-edge machines to subtly enhance appearances. They rely on everything from a Trios or Palomar laser to remove unwanted body hair to a Viora Reaction radio-frequency system to tighten skin to a BriteWhite device to brighten smiles.
The beauty experts also smooth and brighten complexions with oxygen facials and medical microdermabrasion treatments, as well as tone skin with facial peels. These employ such enzyme-rich ingredients as pumpkins, yams, and vitamin C. One of their most indulgent treatments is the 24k gold facial mask that firms skin and helps clients feel richer than James Earl Jones's voice after he gargles with maple syrup.
The Amazing Grace facial, which is a two hour facial that includes laser treatments, peels, and microderms, and hair-color treatments are two of the ways that Earth Angel Elite Spa and Salon beautify their clients. They combine these treatments with skin tag, mole removal, sun spots, high-tech laser hair removal and laser facials to ensure each client leaves with clearer, smoother skin than they came in with.
Mantra Medi Spa’s licensed aestheticians welcome their clients into more than 14 years of skin-fixing experience. Their services range from microdermabrasion treatments that uproot trapped dirt and confetti to laser hair-removal sessions.
