As Brenda Carbone’s arthritis became more and more severe, she had to make a choice: undergo surgery on her neck vertebrae or accept a life dependent on pain medications and sleeping pills. Luckily for Brenda, she discovered the whole-body vibration machine, capable of easing her pain—and helping her shed 30 pounds—without assistance from traditional medicine. Today, Brenda and her colleague, Kristy Carbone, help others find relief at her clinic, O2 Wellness.
O2 offers more than the whole-body vibration treatment, though. In the way of weight loss, they present solutions ranging from HCG, a belly-fat-burning peptite, to soothing sessions in the infrared sauna. They also render facial treatments to turn back the clock without the dire consequences of time travel, such as never meeting your ex-spouse. Beyond getting exteriors into shape, Brenda and staff also offer various options for pain relief.
Owner and founder Jackie Dark, a longtime eyelash-extension customer, wanted to introduce others to the beauty service that shortened her daily routine. She and her team of certified aestheticians and cosmetologists at Lovely Lash Salon & Cosmetic Center dedicate the practice solely to instant beauty fixes. Some of the services they offer include eyelash extensions—with synthetic or mink lashes in varying sizes, lengths, and styles, they add volume to guests' eyes, making them look alert and fresh during all hours without using mascara. They also perm and tint lashes, as well as spray tanning, teeth whitening, and help improve figures with VelaShape body shaping.
Helmed by board-certified specialists, Facial Aesthetic Concepts was recently recognized as the Best Place for a Nip and Tuck in the Orange County Register's 2010 Best Of Orange County and enacts glowing dermises with a variety of services. Fit for any skin type, the seasonal signature facial fortifies human fabrics with a blend of deep pore cleansing, steam, exfoliation, and gentle-cycle hydration. Meanwhile, the ultimate one-hour chemical peel exorcises the specters of dead surface cells to help halt acne, rosacea, stage productions of Casper, and sun damage. Safe and effective laser systems penetrate the cheeks in the full-frame photofacial (IPL), which works to stimulate collagen production, mend broken capillaries, and minimize hyperpigmentation.
OC Laser Lipo's staff contours bodies with effective and painless treatments, which is why both of its offices are outfitted with only Zerona and Dazzle Light systems. During FDA-approved Zerona treatments—which were featured on The Dr. Oz Show—five rotating cold lasers dance across target areas, such as the love handles or back rolls, to rupture fat cells at the subcutaneous layer. The body's lymphatic system then naturally absorbs the fluid leaked from the cells, causing figures to begin slowly dwindling down. Working in a similar way, Dazzle Light employs 144 high-power LEDs to pinch inches while also smoothing the appearance of cellulite, specifically on areas where the skin has begun forming into unsightly portraits of Gary Busey.
Waves Beyond Skincare specializes in facial and body treatments using high-quality products from brands such as Epicuren and Obagi. You’ll find more specialized treatments here as well, including the cryoprobe—a therapy that uses extreme cold to remove broken capillaries. Complimentary skin analysis and personalized product consultations are also available. The day spa has a peaceful atmosphere where clients can receive one-on-one service in seclusion.
The staff at Ageless Generation Day Spa uses a variety of skin treatments to maintain healthy, youthful skin. The spa offers more than 10 facials that treat skin conditions such as acne, dull skin, and clogged pores. The staff also tightens skin using radio frequency, which stimulates collagen production and boosts metabolism.
