Within an art deco beauty lounge draped in black carpets, ebony lacquer, and pink accents is Wake Up Beautiful, a twofold beauty business. For spa services, owner Brandi Langley has specialized in administering treatments such as endermologie, eyelash extensions, and permanent makeup?among many others?for more than a decade. Concurrently, Brandi's partner, Dr. Victoria Cupic, takes a holistic approach to weight-loss treatments, aiming to boost both emotional and physical benefits via B12 injections and supplements. Dr. Cupic specializes in bio-identical hormone replacement and offers full medical services, including Botox and other fillers, and laser-hair removal.
A fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology since 1989, Lorrie Klein specializes in the artistic application of cosmetic dermatology. She and her experienced visage-refiners emphasize the individual appearance and needs of each patient while ensuring that each treatment is as comfortable as possible. Botox treatments, de-quirk asymmetrical eyebrows back into place ($25-$300,) retouch corners of the mouth ($80-$130,) and smooth contemplative forehead lines ($160-$260.) Dr Klein's laser hair removal services, employ Gentlease and GentleYAG lasers, which minimize black and brown hair while utilizing a cool spray to alleviate discomfort. The lasers zap underarms smooth for $99, and a lip/chin double defoliation is available for $150. Crystal microdermabrasion targets discolored or irregular patches of skin for $175 per treatment, forcing them to conform with the rest of your well-behaved skin cells. Sterile aluminum oxide crystals non-invasively reduce freckles, acne scars, and sun damage with no downtime later.
The staff at Ageless Generation Day Spa uses a variety of skin treatments to maintain healthy, youthful skin.

Licensed healthcare practitioner Bridget "Gigi" Goddard, RNC focuses all of her certifications and years of experience toward a single goal: making clients feel beautiful. Her expertise as a skincare professional and authority on non-surgical aesthetic procedures has led her to be featured on television programs including The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Doctors. At Pure Indulgence, she uses a variety of lasers to remove unwanted hair, reduce signs of aging, and destroy incoming asteroids. She also tightens lax skin throughout the body with non-invasive Exilis treatments designed to boost collagen production and contour problem areas, and uses injectables such as Botox and Dysport to erase forehead creases, crow's feet, and frown lines for months at a time.
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.
Beverly Hills Cosmetic Centers' lobby blends cream colored walls and matching marbled tile with dark wood furnishings: a classic combination of colors that hints at luxury. Behind the scenes, however, the team of technicians use techniques that are anything but classic. They wield the latest technology to smooth skin and sculpt bodies, including lasers, ultrasound waves, infrared lights, and fine sprays of crystals. Ultrasonic cavitation, for instance, has proven a popular treatment. Technicians use ultrasonic waves to target fat cells beneath the surface of the skin and eliminate them, just as the Pied Piper coaxed rats from their hiding places with his ultrasonic fiddling, and then made them explode.
