All three of Laser Sculpture’s LA-area locations feature free in-office consultations and are open six days a week.
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.

They imbue strands with highlights, color gloss, or a high dimension hue, and mold manes via cutting options such as a trim, a razored do', layers, blunt lines, and shaping. Post cut and color, stylists can straighten strands with a flat iron and cover with lacquer to make sure it holds its shape.
The phrase “and more” can mean many things. At Spade Skin Care & More, Inc., some might say it refers to the extra mile their staff goes to ensure that guests experience an environment of total relaxation and tranquility. Following an in-depth consultation, clients are treated to flavored water, tea, or coffee before they are led to a private treatment room. There, they can relax and unwind before a skincare specialist arrives to perform a natural and non-invasive treatment such as laser body slimming, organic permanent makeup, massage therapy or Collagen Production Therapy. Following appointments, guests can recline in the quiet room or retreat to the lounge before venturing out to show off their rejuvenated look to their reflection in a glass bus stop shelter. Spade Skin & More's attention to detail has also garnered praise from its loyal clientele.
Born and raised in California, poppy beauty bar's owners share a special affection for the Golden State. It seemed only natural, then, to name their beauty bar after the state’s official flower, the poppy. However, when choosing a color scheme for the spa, they opted for a delicate green rather than the bright yellow of the California poppy. The end result is a calming sanctuary whose beauty rivals that of any flower.
Today, the staff at poppy beauty bar focuses on skin care, nail services, and waxing. Vintage touches abound throughout the spa, though they sometimes serve a hidden purpose—the chic metal water buckets used for pedicures are, in fact, easier to clean and more sanitary than traditional foot baths. Clients can work with one of poppy's party planners to throw an in-salon party to celebrate a wedding shower, birthday, or the removal of a hangnail.
