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.
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.
Skincare has always been a passion for Cee Angelica, leading her to attend the Marinello Beauty School and then work at spas and salons throughout San Diego. Her new venture, The Loving Lash & Wax Parlour, zeroes in on an important area of expertise—body hair. Cee fills out lash lines with full eyelash sets or smaller 30-lash extensions. She also removes unwanted fuzz from areas across the body, including faces, legs, and bikini zones.
A sparkling chandelier, mirrors in gilded frames, a marbled Corinthian pillar. Ultra Lux Salon and Day Spa would live up to its name by d?cor alone. But once patrons slide into chairs, a team of hairstylists extends pampering still further by snipping off split ends, coloring locks, and adding length with extensions. Spa services such as massages, manicures, and waxing soothe bodies as well as strands.
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.
Given Salon Sol's name, the space is fittingly illuminated with natural light from from large front windows. A warm shade of yellow also covers the salon's walls and cabinetry. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists renovate tresses with hair treatments aided by products from Bosley, Pureology, Enjoy, American Crew, and Moroccanoil. The salon also offers invigorating facials, which penetrate deep into pores to rid the skin of dirt and grime, along with waxing and threading. In addition, Salon Sol pampers guests with mani-pedis, each of which come with a complimentary reflexology treatment.
