Liz has been a licensed aesthetician for six years and a licensed massage therapist for two. In that time she's covered the spectrum of skincare, working as an acne specialist as well as gaining certificates in both face and body treatments. Her experiences come to a head at Beauty and Bliss, where she tends to skin and spirits with a full slate of spa services. Her facials include medleys of serums, steam, and moisturizers to combat signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dinosaur scratches, and she puts her massage expertise to use with full-body Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal services.
Trained aestheticians and laser technicians at Rejuvenis Skincare's medical spa illuminate—and then quickly alleviate—epidermal concerns using FDA-approved SoftLight lasers and other skin treatments. The medical-spa staff employs a wide spectrum of colored beams to focus in on nuanced body areas and remove hair, melt away excess cellulite, correct hyperpigmentation, or break down inks to remove tattoos and permanent sponsorship logos. Microdermabrasion and chemical facials using AHA glycolic-, salicylic-, or lactic-acid peels help to erase skin woes such as acne and wrinkles without bursts of light, yet clients often still hear disco music in their heads.
A community-concept salon, Lipstick & Bullets Beauty Bar is home to a network of salon professionals who perform high-end cut and color services. These stylists specialize in the latest color and texturizing trends and can smooth and strengthen hair with japanese thermal straightening treatments and keratin blowouts. In addition, they provide a specialty line of hair extensions, X-tensions, which lengthen hair more effectively than that time you spiked your mousse with Miracle-Gro.
When Dr. Minh Le practiced as a medical doctor, he treated thousands of in-need patients for a mere $25 per visit. Nowadays, his focus has shifted towards cosmetic treatments, but his practice still prioritizes accessibility for all budgets. At Vienna Skin Clinic, he and his team use cost-effective, state-of-the-art treatments to help skin look its best, deploying Elos-powered skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal. Alternatively, visitors can opt for wrinkle-smoothing injectables, such as Botox and Restylane. During their noninvasive treatments, patients can relax by listening to music or gazing out the window at scenic views of Silicon Valley?s laptop gardens.
Like all her fellow stylists at Tangerine Hair Studio, Tara works with Paul Mitchell products, which are high-quality serums crafted without animal testing. She pairs them with her more than a decade of salon experience to snip custom cuts and to paint in highlights, all-over color, and tinted glazes. To stay abreast of the latest trends, she also attends a regular roster of continuing education classes.
Orchid Bloom Spa inspires beauty and balance with practices from Thailand and Hungary. A Thai herbal massage relieves deep-seated tension with intense stretches as the essential oils of tumeric, lemongrass, and bergamot tickle the inner senses. Treatments deploy a selection of organic Hungarian products and Thailand's Harnn products, which the spa stocks for use at home or after a hard day at the abacus. Upon arriving at the spa, clients can sip a soothing strawberry beverage while relaxing in the sunlit waiting area.
