With more than 10 years of beauty-industry experience, massage therapist and aesthetician Christine Rasmussen knows aesthetic treatments inside and out. And at her beauty haven, Skin, she requires that her staff does, too. Together, the knowledgeable team of certified technicians creates a welcoming space where they personalize each skincare and body service. Aestheticians reach for skin-type specific Ayur-Medic and Dermalogica products to enhance the cleansing effects of facial or the exfoliating impact of a chemical peel or diamond microdermabrasion. This same attention to detail can be found during customized body treatments, which range from trigger-point therapy and lomilomi massages to a detoxifying body scrub made with sea salt or a sugar mixture infused with fruit, chocolate, and coffee ingredients.
Skin's dedicated team also provides mobile spa treatments and spa parties, both of which can be performed in the comfort of the client's home, office, or giant, walk-in makeup compact.
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologists Dr. A. David Rahimi and Dr. Michael Lin, who has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the licensed aestheticians at Westlake Laser & Aesthetics Medical Group slough off dead skin cells during 30-minute glycolic- or salicylic-acid peels. Aestheticians apply professional Linage serums specially developed by Dr. Lin to reduce fine lines, fight acne, and make visages smoother than a dolphin at a singles bar. Typically, the treatments can improve the appearance of faces, necks, and chests by lightening pigmentation and revealing a healthy, rosy glow. After the resurfacing session, patients can return instantly to work or competitive pole vaulting, as there is no downtime required.
At Massage by Piroska, located within West Coast Cuts & Colors hair salon, a licensed massage therapist in practice since 2001 kneads away tension and pain. Specialties include relaxing Swedish massages, sports massages, and hot-stone sessions that calm the body and the mind. Indulge with add-ons such as scalp massages and exfoliating foot scrubs.

Within the spacious confines of John of Italy Salon & Spa, yellow sconces cast their glow upon thickly padded couches and loveseats, the scarlet walls of private treatment rooms, and artwork both framed on the wall and painted onto it. Nail technician Gina Longo sets up shop here, drawing on 20 years of experience to groom and pamper hands and feet—the way a teacher with 20 years of experience might groom children to write with their hands and feet. In addition to standard services such as trimming cuticles, she hydrates skin with moisturizing masques and performs reflexology massages with essential oils. Before or after treatments, visitors can peruse a boutique stocked with nail polish, skincare products, and even spa-quality slippers and robes.
