After more than 20 years in business, Ultra Tanning & Contempo Day Spa has had plenty of time to build a spa menu that features much more than just tanning. The services here now include five types of massage, as well as a diverse selection of skincare treatments ranging from a papaya brightening facial to micro-needling. Hair stylists and nail technicians beautify clients in the salon, while some of the private treatment rooms are outfitted with automated hydration and red-light therapy machines.
Of course, tanning is and will always be Ultra's specialty. There are four levels of tanning beds, including the Velocity, a futuristic bed with an added level that keeps clients from having to recline directly on the bulbs. Of course, you can always opt for an airbrush tan, which can be customized to better define muscles or achieve that two-tone look that will probably be all the rage one of these summers.
Stylist Tiffany Serrano crafts haircuts for men and women. She also specializes in coloring techniques as well as up-dos and special-event styling for weddings, proms, and sweet 16s. Tiffany works out of Five Doors Down The Salon, a full-service salon located in downtown San Dimas.
The epidermis experts at Kirana Day Spa pamper dull dermises with all-natural, organic products. Clogged countenances can rid themselves of deadbeat skin cells with the 70-minute Ageless Beauty facial ($75), which harnesses the exfoliating power of organic apples, grapes, and naseberry, along with two herbal masks, to increase blood flow, detoxify skin, and reveal the secret location of Davy Jones's bathroom. Peepers also receive a fine-tuned perking with an anti-aging eye exfoliation ($20), which evicts ocular blemishes such as wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles brought on by sleepless nights spent mulling over tactics for tomorrow's three-legged race. The pampersperience also includes a soothing massage for the face, shoulders, and arms.
At Five Doors Down, relaxing skin therapies with body treatments make it easy to feel like you've been transported to another world. The inviting treatment rooms are decked out in warm lighting and natural accents. The whimsical Mermaid Room, for instance, features textured sea green walls and decorative starfish that occasionally help out with massages.
Bioelements skin-care products go into many of the skin treatments offered at Amber Skin Care. The staff can whip up custom facials based on each client's skin tone and condition. There are also facials for men, and organic facials that incorporate Chinese herbs to aid in exfoliating and hydrating skin.
The word friends is featured prominently in the decor at Now & Zen Salon & Day Spa. It sits above a mirror in a softly lit treatment room, and it hangs in a picture frame on a light-blue wall. This emphasis on friendship is a reflection of how the staff members view their clients. They welcome visitors with warm smiles and make them feel at home by reminding them to load the dishwasher. During treatments in private rooms, massage therapists work out pain and stress using hot stones and deep-tissue techniques. Elsewhere, aestheticians wax away unwanted fuzz and use facial peels to smooth complexions.
