Angela Lark Landy didn?t learn about sugar compounds in a baking class; rather, she was introduced to them at a skincare convention after years of frustration with shaving and waxing. When a specialist from Alexandria Professional offered Angela a hair removal alternative that would suit her sensitive skin, she jumped at the opportunity, not knowing that it would soon change her life. After gaining her aesthetician?s license and certification as a sugaring practitioner, she opened The Sweetest Skin Co. in Stevenson Ranch to treat clients with sugaring hair removal and other skincare services. When opening a second location, Angela asked another Alexandria Professional-certified aesthetician Andrea Apisa to run the newest The Sweetest Skin Co. in Thousand Oaks.
Using an all-natural Alexandria Professional compound of water, lemon juice, and sugar, Angela and Andrea remove hair from the root while simultaneously nourishing the skin and keeping tattoos from getting dehydrated. In addition to smoothing down bodies with hair removal, they also treat clients with various skincare services such as facials, back exfoliations, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. All of their treatments are powered by professional-grade products from brands such as glo-therapeutics, Alexandria Professional, Bionet, Enspri, and Spa Girl.
At Sofya's European Skin Care, owner Sofya draws from more than 25 years of experience in the skin care field to keep skin healthy and fresh. Sofya's specialty is treating severe and cystic acne, though she can also tackle a wide range of complexion issues with help from LED light therapy, crystal-free microdermabrasion, and high quality, organic products by brands such as Epicuren, Jadience, and EMK Placental. Sofya infuses the skin with moisture during hydrotherapy facials, removes bacteria during acne facials, and reduces hyperpigmentation during brightening facials. Of course, beauty isn't confined to the face, which is why the spa's services also include organic waxing, back facials, and massage.
All the technicians at Sun Diva Tanning undergo rigorous training to be certified by NTTI––the National Tanning Training Institute. They customize full-body airbrush sessions to the individual's unique skin tone, using 95% organic spray-tan formulas free of harmful parabens. And because the solutions are vegan, clients can cultivate a UV-free glow while staying true to their lifestyles, like a giraffe that uses a giraffe-shaped tanning bed without leaving his savannah. The technicians also offer bridal parties specifically catering to brides and their bridesmaids.
From their sculptures to their architecture, it’s clear that Italians have long understood beauty. The professional beautifiers at Casa Bella Salon fittingly draw inspiration from the country’s aesthetics. They appoint their salon and spa as a villa, coating its worn stone walls in the famed bougainvillea vines that ensconce many a Tuscan manor. They further channel this ancient beauty into modern styles as they sculpt hair, apply makeup, and rejuvenate skin. They also provide manicures and pedicures, topping nails with a single hue or the stripes of the Italian flag.
The eponymous aesthetician of Oriana's Skin Therapy keeps birthday suits looking their best with a menu of facials and waxing treatments. Oriana also preaches a message of proper nutrition and ample hydration as part of a healthy skincare regimen, and recommends NeriumAD products for a boost in anti-aging efforts. Her eyelash extensions glamorize lids for special occasions and her teeth-whitening treatments brighten smiles that have gone dull from smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, or mouthwashing with soy sauce.
Using ultrasound technology, fine serums, and a wealth of experience, aesthetician Lynn helps clients realize their healthiest, most beautiful skin. She uses a product line that's favored by celebrities, but the most compelling evidence of her treatments' prowess comes from her own clients: testimonials on the Skin by Lynn site taut the effectiveness of Lynn's work, "her sparkling personality," and the compliments their skin garners from strangers.
