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.
Though diet and exercise are often touted as the best ways to lose weight, they don't often produce immediate, visible results. However, the certified technicians at Therma Sculpting have alternative methods that do: ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency. The noninvasive ultrasonic cavitation procedure sends low-frequency ultrasound waves to blast unwanted fat, morphing it from a solid to a liquid that is cycled through the lymphatic system. In addition to melting 1/2?3 inches of fat away during one treatment, the procedure can be coupled with a radio frequency skin-tightening treatment, which stimulates the skin's elasticity. Together, the treatments help to tighten skin, reduce cellulite, and increase the body's ability to bounce quarters off of its midsection.
The aesthetically minded technicians at Maya Medical Center perform treatments that marry beauty with science, including laser hair and vein reductions, facials forged from high-quality skincare agents, and all-natural spray tans. Performed in cozy treatment rooms with pastel-hued walls and effects such as leopard-print blankets, each service undergoes personal tailoring based on the client's cosmetic goals and shoe size on the planet Jupiter.
The Sweat Shop LA's owners Shamina and Julian Ledesma love to make people sweat. It means they're burning calories, strengthening their cardiovascular systems, detoxifying their bodies, and enjoying the shop?s eco-certified cedar infrared saunas. The center?s saunas speed up metabolism, clear the mind, and enhance complexions in as little as 30 minutes. Post-heat, clients can welcome a bracing rush of water from the saunas? filtered showers, which come stocked with organic products, towels, and water.
To extend relaxation past the sauna doors, Shamina and Julian enlist the help of Alexis Lovemonster and Anna McNiven, two women with degrees or licensing in such treatments as massage, acupuncture, reiki, and traditional Chinese medicine. The pair improves health and alleviates chronic pain with massage services, cupping, and acupuncture. The center also offers vitamin injections and ultrasonic laser body-contouring treatments that break down fat cells and tighten skin.
UV light from five levels of tanning booths and beds sets all-white interiors aglow at Total Tan's two locations in West Hollywood and Marina Del Rey. Designed by upscale brands such as Ergoline and Matrix, each bronzing chamber cossets clients with amenities including voice-guided operated controls, music, and cooling fans that pump air directly from Total Tan's sister salon in the Antarctic. Patrons can enhance sessions with lotions from brands such as California Tan and Australian Gold.
Alternatively, custom airbrush spray tans evenly coat skin with Infinity Sun solution, whose cocktail of DHA and pure botanicals leaves bodies bronzed for up to 10 days. Inside Total Tan's cellulite bike chamber, infrared lights work to smooth cellulite problem areas as the client pedals a stationary bike at 75% maximum heart rate in an attempt to escape the nearby stationary rottweiler.
Firm Body Evolution pairs age-old practices with modern technology to help people look and feel younger. The fitness center specializes in natural weight loss and detox treatments on a cellular level to promote overall health, all the while focusing on relaxation. FBE's eclectic services work alone or in harmony to treat a slew of ailments with whole-body-vibration treatments, Jade Infrared Sauna sessions, and machine-assisted lymphatic compression massages. The generous 4,500-square-foot facility features private treatment rooms and more rarified amenities including an alkaline water station, aromatherapy-infused air, and free parking for commuter hot-air balloons.
