Medical professionals oversee beautiful transformations at Iuvenis Clinic, which is nestled away on the lush Salinas campus. Here, under the watchful eyes of Dr. Paul Francisco and registered nurse Christina Francisco, the technicians work to improve complexions with hydrafacials, Botox injections, and exfoliating microdermabrasions. They further rejuvenate faces with peels and IPL photofacials, which are designed to get rid of hyperpigmentation and sun spots, and they combat acne with the power of lasers, which are second to only magic. Arming their clients with the goods to treat themselves on their own, they offer at-home teeth-whitening kits and eyelash-boosting Latisse.
The tanning attendants at Aloha Tan customize mists from DHA-based tanning solutions. The techs don't only customize for color; they also wield an impressive array of formulas designed for various types of skin, such as age-defying formula, natural formula, and rapid tan. Aside from airbrush tanning, the team also takes care of unwanted facial and body hair with waxing service and preps faces for nights out with professional makeup services.
After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager. Since completing beauty school in 2006 and becoming a licensed aesthetician in 2007, Doran has used her expertise to clear the complexions of numerous clients, including a woman in her 50s who'd been dealing with acne since her teens. This April, Doran began running her skincare operation out of a gut-rehabbed salon, where she uses phytomer and Jan Marini products to pamper clients with specialized facials designed to treat conditions ranging from acne and discoloration to wrinkles in the time-space continuum.
Owner and licensed aesthetician Luciana Mueller trained in Brazil and uses natural waxes imported from Brazil to gently extricate unwelcome tendrils and smoothen sensitive areas for up to five weeks. Lip waxing ($15) encourages silken smooches, and eyebrow shaping ($15) enables newly beautified faces to express the gamut of human emotion—from happiness to unbridled happiness—in utmost style. Defuzz underams ($20) and lower arms ($35) or prep for the beach with a Brazilian bikini wax ($65). Waxing provides longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
Dr. Keller and his medical team resuscitate skin from premature aging with advanced techniques in diagnostic, genetic, and cellular medicine. Help your visage’s garden bloom with a facial treatment that exfoliates and revitalizes skin, stimulating new cell growth. A double cleanse and steam exfoliation coaxes shy dirt and oil from the pores, before a SilkPeel microscopically exfoliates the skin's surface and delivers a topical dermaceutical to the layers below. Unlike a sandpaper slip 'n' slide, the noninvasive process doesn’t abrade the skin with rough, irritating particles. Following the sloughing of cells, an enzyme peel and dermal infusion targets each guest’s specific skin conditions. Faces are topped off with serum, cream, and sunblock to protect delicate mugs from the sun's over-enthused eskimo kisses.
