Drawing on her medical background, Marlene Fortney transmits youthful brightness back into clients' features with skin-refining treatments in an intimate spa setting, located inside A Little Indulgence Day Spa. Her spa service menu centers on the face in a range of treatments that incorporate creams rich in antioxidants, deep-cleansing ultrasound rays, and enzyme exfoliants that gently whisk away roughened façades like a brick-wall repossession. For more intense skin restructuring, Marlene can draw on a retinue of high-powered treatments, such as glycolic-acid peels or diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments that work to unveil smooth complexions from beneath dull skin cells. The specialist also brandishes waxing treatments that span from faces to feet to rid bodies of unwanted hair or sculpt brows into arches sharp enough to pop double-entendres in midair.
The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies.

The beauty specialists prove their dedication to creating a stress-free oasis by setting up each service with an appointment, which guarantees that each client receives the unhurried, personalized attention typically reserved for slow-motion tickle fights. Outside of her skincare business, Madison Mohrr - who recently celebrated 25 years of being cancer free - works with breast cancer awareness groups in Fresno.

The stylists at A Little Indulgence Salon sculpt hair into works of head art, cutting strands with shears sharpened on years of know-how. After scuttling split ends, adding layers, and picking out burs, mane tamers bathe head threads in shampoos from lines such as Dermalogica or Enjoy Professional Hair Care. Half or full highlights then deepen looks by enhancing the dimension of freshly lopped locks. Service concludes as hair undergoes a finishing styling that reflects its grower’s personality or favorite Dr. Seuss character. While undergoing scalp metamorphosis, clients can relax within the studio’s décor of stucco walls, murals of palm trees and archways, and leopard-print upholstery.
