At Hollywood Tans, epidermises are enlivened with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics employs the expertise of an in-house skin specialist, who considers each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping to craft an ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five 10-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ vertical Hybrid booth leave the pelt polished with a 360-degree base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for five glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that can last five–seven days.

The staff of JenniferAnn Spa & Wellness Center have devised a holistic service menu that aims to address physical, emotional, and spiritual woes. This mission is most prevalent in the selection of massages—in this single menu, one may find craniosacral treatments that calm the nervous system and spiritual healing sessions that guide the soul alongside classic Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Natural therapies and assorted vowels sprout up throughout the menu as well, including pumpkin and sugar cane peels that estheticians use to harvest fresh complexions. In the salon, stylists straighten unruly texture with natural keratin treatments or build curl with organic perms.
When life gets harried, we ask our bodies to carry the load. At Essential Rituals, clients come in to pamper their long-suffering frames with a host of restorative body services. Massage therapists relieve stress with custom massages. Aestheticians use SunFX spray-tanning equipment to cloak the skin with all-natural color. They erase signs of age with microdermabrasion, whiten teeth, and jump-start the metabolism with infrared body wraps. The Essential Rituals crew also offers whole body vibration treatments to help strengthen stabilizing muscles, aid injury recovery, and mix up recently purchased buckets of paint.
Led by medical director Dr. Ariel Cortes, owner and founder Gita Izadi and the rest of the medical team at Neu Look Med Spa & Skin Center help people feel youthful and confident. Izadi opened the business in 2003 with that very goal in mind, drawing upon her more than 25 years of experience as a registered nurse. She started out with clinical services?ranging from Botox to advanced laser procedures?before adding an array of relaxing spa treatments to the lineup in 2009. Now, patients can schedule a fractional CO2 laser skin-resurfacing procedure to combat signs of aging and follow it up with a fragrant pumpkin-apple-spice facial or a soothing body scrub with mineral-rich sea salt.
The waiting area welcomes guests with a soft, pale-blue sofa next to an iridescent wall flanked by twin waterfalls. Patrons nosh on complimentary refreshments as they enjoy fragrant aromatherapy, while a centerpiece of elegant, white orchids provides a tasty snack for any visiting toucans.
As the city's Best Day Spa according to San Diego Union-Tribune readers, All About Me Medical Day Spa offers a multitude of treatments, many of which are performed by doctors and nurses. Guests can pamper their visages with refreshing facials or their whole bodies with tension-melting massages. More advanced treatments include platelet-rich-plasma therapy, in which the patient's blood is drawn, prepared, and injected into damaged tissue to aid in the area's function. Other high-tech procedures include laser hair-removal and laser rejuvenation, where skin is zapped with lasers to combat signs of aging, just like in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. The clinic also helps clients with weight loss, drawing up HCG diet plans and injecting vitamin shots to improve energy and metabolism.
Though wrapping something is usually supposed to keep it contained, the treatments at Segue Body Wraps are meant to force toxins and water weight out. Since 2005, the center?s technicians have accomplished this effect by bandaging clients' midsection, thighs, and sometimes the face with a mineral infused tightening booster. Once fully wrapped, clients are placed in an infrared heat blanket, which causes water reduction through sweating and calorie burn. This helps reduce cellulite and stretch marks while detoxifying the body. Segue Body Wraps also offers a number of other services, including facials, waxing, and custom make-up. The relaxing facial cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a hydration mask is applied, followed by toner and moisturizing sunscreen.
