Face to Face Los Angeles sprang from the fertile, well-moisturized mind of Robert van den Hurk, who wanted to make the latest advances in beauty technology available in a fashionable day spa. Aestheticians perform anti-aging skincare services with a proprietary line of products mentioned on Examiner.com. Body wraps help to funnel infrared heat deep down to help to break up cellulite deposits, and clinical facials clear out pores with the power of galvanic currents and shouting "fire!" near patches of congested skin.
Larisa Krylova’s vast knowledge of beauty standards and techniques is due to her industry experience in both the United States and Russia, although she’s been settled in the former for more than 15 years now. To keep her Californian clients looking their best, the licensed cosmetologist and her staff use only high-end products, including the Margy’s Monte Carlo skincare line and haircare products by Matrix, Sebastian, and Vavoom. The service menu ranges from haircutting and straightening to waxing and nailcare, for which technicians adorn fingers and toes with more than 100 color options. There’s also a skincare offering for every inch of the body; aestheticians administer facial microdermabrasion and fat-burning body wraps among numerous other treatments that help clients feel vibrant and healthy.
Following in her mother?s footsteps, Julia of Julia?s Beautique & Skin Care began her now nearly 30-year career at a dermatologist?s office in her native Russia. There, she learned the ins and outs of dealing with acne and other skin problems. She then moved to Israel to add to her arsenal of skills by training in European skincare. Today, Julia lives and works in LA, where she practices her own approach to skincare that combines her experience with problem skin and her mastery of European skincare techniques. She treats men, women, and teens with facials that battle acne and aging, and she also rejuvenates skin using Holy Land products. Beyond her 15 specialty facials, Julia also caters to clients' unwanted hair with body waxing and threading.
The expert duo at La'Lautus brings beauty to clients in two ways. Michelle Brusasco runs the boutique side, filling the racks with her custom designs, some of which have been worn to the Emmy Awards. She also helps out on the spa side, performing manicures and pedicures alongside medical aesthetician Jennifer Gligorijevic, who specializes in skincare. Jennifer performs facials and raspberry Jessner peels, among other services, with products from the line she created, which clients can purchase to maintain brightened skin at home. In addition, La'Lautus offers waxing, eyebrow and lash tinting, and eyelash extensions.
Based on its name, it's not surprising that the massage therapists at Kittima Thai Massage are experts in Thai massage, a bodywork system that combines assisted stretching with Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to ease chronic tension.
