Throughout the course of her career, Diana Ralys has earned close to 30 certifications and garnered experience working as a global lead aesthetician for Jurlique organic skincare. She puts her knowledge to practice at Premium Skin Care by Diana, performing facial treatments and guiding a staff of one other skin therapist and an office manager, who happens to be her daughter. Using products from OSEA, Skin for Life, and her own signature line, Diana reduces signs of aging and clears away acne and blown kisses. Her microdermabrasion treatments use organic grains to exfoliate the skin, and her pumpkin peels set skin aglow by dissolving dead skin cells and promoting collagen production.

The ARCONA Studio opened in 1989; its namesake was a chemist whose interest in holistic skincare was, at the time, a progressive idea. She began developing products made from cosmeceutical-grade ingredients such as enzymes, plant extracts, amino acids, and antioxidants. By cold-processing all her products in small batches, she was able to maintain the natural ingredients’ freshness and create highly active formulations. Because her anti-aging products are designed to speed up the skin’s renewal cycle from 30 days to only seven, she quickly gained a following among LA’s elite. With the philosophy that “skin can and should look beautiful at any age,” the Studio’s aestheticians perform an extensive selection of skincare treatments fueled by professional-grade ARCONA products. Their signature facial contouring treatments were originally developed by Arcona herself, and use lymph drainage and deep facial massage to “exercise” the 55 muscles of the face, giving clients a more toned and tightened appearance. Additional services include peels with organic fruit enzymes and red-carpet radiance treatments with a combination of oxygen spray, LED, and a brightening eye treatment. Like many of the complexions maintained here, the studio itself is flawless. Out front, soft lighting glows in the store, where the brand’s iconic ivory boxes are lined up immaculately on floating shelves. In the waiting area, creamy white chairs sit beside rich brown cabinets; from here, aestheticians guide clients back to private treatment rooms that bloom with the smell of fresh flowers.
Whether they're eradicating acne with a specially formulated combination of sulfur, enzymes, and probiotics or diminishing fine lines and dryness with pumpkin peels, Marina Beauty Bar's aestheticians customize each facial to their clients' specific needs. And to ensure optimal skin rejuvenation, the team uses products from top skincare lines such as Dermalogica, Intraceuticals, and Epicuren, which uses an all-natural enzyme base for its products.
The staff also offers cosmetic services to accent the effects of their skincare treatments. Clients can undergo permanent-makeup treatments that camouflage scars and enhance eyes, lips, and eyebrows, as well as tinting services that spruce up brows and lashes with new hues. Additionally, their waxing treatments remove unwanted hair from eyebrow arches, as well as chests, underarms, and werewolf feet, in under 30 minutes.
