Valley Dermatology’s Dr. Scott A. Smith curtails signs of aging with a host of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. Dysport, a skin-smoothing serum, temporarily irons out cranial creases for up to four months. The 15-minute treatment targets facescapes wrought with creases and lines by dispersing a dewrinkling solution that calms hyperactive facial muscles. The dewrinkling solution can smooth furrows on the forehead, crow's feet, or between the eyebrows; and the minimally invasive treatment requires no downtime, so faces can resume everyday activities such as smiling and catching whipped cream pies.
Aspire Skin & Wellness Clinic shrinks stubborn fat cells with a full spectrum of high-tech lipo-laser and infrared treatments. Each 60-minute lipo-laser session begins with a comprehensive BMI and weight measurement to take stock of physical landscapes. Come treatment time, the client relaxes on a bed as a certified laser maven moves small diode paddles on lymph nodes across the body, breaking up resilient spots of fat cells. The lipo-laser package begins and ends with a trip to the whole-body vibration device to shake down any freed-up fatty acids or leftover lunch money while exercising muscles through a series of contractions and relaxations. The technicians at Aspire Skin & Wellness can also exile unwanted adipose with a slimming far infrared wrap, combining skin-tightening essential-oil creams with a relaxing invisible-spectrum hug, designed to break up fat tissue, reduce cellulite, and warm the body's inner caramel core.

SunSational Tanning provides bronze seekers with one Mystic Tan spray-tan booth and 14 tanning beds in a 3,500-square-foot tanning salon. Tanners can step into a standup Mystic Tan spray-tan booth, where a mechanical airbrush travels from head to pinky toe, spritzing the body with a custom sunless formulation that results in a deep, long-lasting bronze that can't be bought in a pawn shop. Clients can also opt for Sudatonic infrared body wraps that promote weightless, red light therapy that stimulates collagen production in the skin, and UV tanning beds. The tanning salon also features a coffee house that serves gourmet coffee and offers free WiFi so customers can research next season's tanning trends. The shop sports a merchandise section that includes apparel and skin care products from Designer Skin, California Tan, and Australian Gold.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Inland Empire Dermatology's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Paul Ross and his hand-selected aesthetician Sarah Mjelde help clients feel at ease during personalized medical and aesthetic skincare treatments. No matter the client's age, Dr. Ross aims to diagnose skin cancer early using a dermoscopy technique to examine each mole and pigmented lesion tagging the client's body or growing at the place where their body meets their shadow. Since joining the Inland family more than six years ago, aesthetician Sarah has shown an aptitude for revitalizing complexions using advanced technology, including a trio of lasers—Iridex Diolite 532 and Candela's GentleLase and Smoothbeam—which gently whisk away unwanted pigmentation, hair, and acne. Sarah also dolls up visages with expert makeup applications utilizing Jane Iredale cosmetics. Those unsure about their current skincare routine can tote in their epidermis-enhancing products, and Sarah will give them an honest evaluation and suggest products that can better benefit their skin, which could include the Clarisonic brushes, NeoStrata products, and Viveté Revitalizing Eye Cream lining the office's shelves.
