Mia Cosmetics’ experienced aesthetician Maria L. Earnshaw pampers and swaddles soul sacks with a bevy of relaxing spa services. A body-slimming wrap (a $50 value) encases the outermost organ in a solution blended with all-natural American herbs and aloe, which dives through pores in the skin to help dissipate toxins lurking in fat cells. When the client drinks water during the following three days, the body’s lymphatic system may flush out the toxins, which can cause a reduction in the fat cells' size, appearance, and self-esteem.
Bellezza Day Spa's specialists evict freeloading tension and impurities with signature spa treatments including facials, waxing, massages, and manicures. Knowledgeable hands slow dance across weary backs during muscle-kneading massage sessions to improve circulation and invoke relaxation.

Nail treatments enhance the health and appearance of back scratchers and often conclude with hot-lavender-oil massages. Diligent depilators uproot unwanted skin sprouts with hard and soft waxes, which make it easy to shape forehead-dwelling caterpillars into beautiful arches.
An Aveda Concept salon, Total Concern 2's staff brings close, personal attention to every salon and space service. Each haircut or color (cut $40+; color $95+) starts with a consultation to determine a treatment that not only looks flattering, but complements your personal style and air-guitar skills. Otherwise, clear your flesh-emoticon of pore-clogs and pie-fight residue with botanical ingredients during one of Total Concern 2's facials ($45+) before blissing out with a little professional massage therapy ($45+) that loosens muscles, flushes out toxins, and works out knots formed during vigorous sessions of puppeteering.
Though she served as director of anesthesiology at the San Leandro Surgery Center, Dr. Gayle Misle helps the clients at Reviv Med Spa to look anything but sleepy. With a mission to help rejuvenate and improve bodies, Misle and her staff fight signs of weariness and aging with the latest aesthetic technologies, including injectables, chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Exilis, Sciton, and other aesthetic units utilize infrared and thermal energy to reshape stores of cellulite and tighten skin by jumpstarting its natural collagen-production process. Expert technicians also master several types of laser treatments that rid the body of unwanted hair and once-wanted tattoos.
Although well-versed in skincare treatments herself, Happy Beauty Center’s head specialist, Kathy, still supplements her knowledge with the expertise contained within the 80-year-old Pola line of Japanese products, which are backed by the work of more than 500 scientists and fewer than one bumbling detective. These formulas and others bolster moisturizing hand and foot treatments and facials such as the diamond microdermabrasion, which can shrink oversize pores while smoothing wrinkles and rough skin. Happy Beauty Center’s specialties also include the foot-body-tummy treatment, during which staffers massage acupressure points on the belly to speed up digestion and fizzle stress.
