Nova Vita's attentive, masterly aestheticians will pamper you with a double-whammy of beautification. Start off with Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, which is the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and precise pressure to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché.
Dr. Quoc Tran helms a staff of specialized nurses to help him achieve what he calls his purpose in life: to “improve and change his patient’s physical and emotional lives.” He achieves this by helping clients lose weight through medication and injections, and also by helping them look younger with Botox, Juvéderm, and Dysport injections. Staff aestheticians also play a part in Dr. Tran’s philosophy, removing dirt and oil from pores with facials and clearing away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The clinic also provides laser hair removal to help clients get rid of unwanted hair and toupees.
IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
As hair maestros overhaul scalps, April Michelle works hard putting the finishing touches on new looks with natural-looking eyelash extensions by Luscious Lashes. As she meticulously affixes the synthetic strands one by one to existing lashes, the rest of the salon bustles with the lively din of stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians.
The salon itself is as vibrant and modish as its staff. It features an eye-grabbing blend of rustic and modern flourishes, including a chain-hung distressed metal sign, partially exposed brick-wall accents, chic light fixtures, and a refreshment station featuring coffee and wine.
