The aestheticians at Dabbo Skin Care Studio know skincare is not about treating the symptoms, but about solving the core problem. That’s why they don’t merely moisturize dry skin; they work to correct imbalances and buff away inhibiting outer layers using the latest cosmeceutical training. They also pair natural skin remedies with the latest technology, using ultrasound technology and abrading treatments to deeply cleanse pores before combating skin’s toxins with fruit enzymes and pure oxygen. Believing that no one treatment is good for everyone, the aestheticians customize their skincare treatments to individual cases of acne, rosacea, or wrinkles caught from hugging a shar pei. The salon’s more in-depth treatments come in a variety of strengths, with 10 styles of chemical peels allowing clients to decide the intensity of the results desired.
Under the medical direction of Douglas Taguchi, MD, Laser Sculpture?s staff harness FDA-approved lasers and beauty injections to improve patients? appearances without surgery. Certified laser specialists carefully zap unwanted hair follicles and melt away excess fat with Cutera, Zerona, and i-Lipo technology, and aesthetic specialists temporarily reduce wrinkles and childhood cheek-pinching scars with Botox, Juv?derm, and other injectable serums. All three of Laser Sculpture?s LA-area locations feature free in-office consultations and are open six days a week.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Though the salon?s name implies an emphasis on brows, the aestheticians at Busy Brows specialize in all hair from the eyebrows downward. The threading artists wield their pure-cotton strings to add precise arches to brows, and waxing technicians delete hair from large areas to create smooth legs, bikini lines, and backs. The salon?s trained eyelash technicians, meanwhile, individually apply up to 80 lashes per eye or LashDip solutions to create a blacker-than-black effect. These long, dramatic lashes last for weeks and can convey the sentiment, ?I have long eyelashes, even though I?m a firefighter and a mannequin.?
The frosted glass on Body Oasis Day Spa's door reads "Indulge." It's not so much a command as an invitation, and for patrons who wish to accept, the service menu furnishes plenty of options: facials that use lemon, honey, and yogurt; hot-stone and Swedish massages; and mani-pedis that incorporate indulgences such as reflexology and Shellac polish. The beauty experts here pamper with a purpose. Whether they're doling out medical skincare treatments or body wraps that include exfoliation, aromatherapy, and a chamomile and marine algae mask, they focus on restoring clients' radiant glow and smooth, silky skin.
Vogue Beauty Studio’s Middle Eastern motif doesn’t stop at its logo and ornamentation—the all-female staff specializes in Middle Eastern beautification, including henna techniques and eyebrow threading. They promote pulchritude with facials, hair color, and permanent makeup, with prominent examples of their work on their website and glazed onto sheet cakes throughout Los Angeles. Pampering takes place in a storefront replete with arches, beaded decor, and a sumptuous curtain over the entryway.
