The staff at Axis Aveda Salon—formerly known as Natural Rejuvenation Aveda—uses a full line of natural beauty products to gussy up clients from head to toe. The quaint, four-chair salon's stylists offer cuts, color, and a variety of Aveda deep-conditioning treatments, and aestheticians perform body waxing and facials within private rooms. During the Elemental Nature facial, beauticians combine Elemental Nature products with exfoliation and massage techniques to address client skin concerns such as aging, dryness, sensitivity, oiliness, and flaking like a sunburned biscuit. A revitalizing Aveda eye treatment pampers peepers with naturally based products that harness the power of pure plant and flower extracts to help deflate under-eye bags
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hairspray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
Housed inside Azure Aesthetics, Good Vibrationz specializes in Laser Lipo treatments that work to sculpt bodies without invasive needles or tubes. The Lapex 2000 Laser Lipo reduces the appearance of cellulite and shrinks fat cells with the help of diode lasers and Shrinky Dinks plastic. The paddles send specific wavelengths of light beneath the skin's surface, penetrating cells so they release the fatty acids within. With the help of a whole-body vibration platform and the body's own metabolism, these fatty acids are flushed from the body, and clients can get back to their normal routines with no downtime or long, protracted goodbye letters to their unwanted fat.
The Man Shop experience begins long before clients are led to their styling chair. At this throwback men's salon with a twist, a sign on the door warns that it's "rated PG-13" for attitude, and visits begin with a game of pool, darts, or an arcade game. Once men are seated in the styling chair, they're handed a remote to their own personal TV. As they veg out in front of the tube, stylists get to work with clipper cuts, razor fades, and grey blending. The Man Shop also features classic hot-towel shaves complete with foam, moisturizers, and straight razors.

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.
Whether they're smoothing out cellulite or laying on a coat of bronze, the technicians at Azure Aesthetics dedicate their entire attention to one organ: the skin. Their treatments strive to make guests comfortable and confident by addressing a wide range of ailments. Facials combat conditions such as acne, wrinkles, or rosacea, though each one begins with a custom skin analysis and lifestyle review. For a full-body service, customers choose their preferred scent of exfoliating sugar scrub: mango, vanilla cocoa bean, or Brazil nut. And, when it comes to reducing dimples or shaping a more svelte silhouette, the staff has multiple tools at their disposal—they utilize a Lapex 2000 lipo-laser machine, as well as far-infrared slimming technology and Bioslimming wraps.
