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.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
After 33 years of clinical and academic medicine, Dr. Edgar A. Guess Jr. expanded his medical repertoire by exploring alternative and holistic wellness techniques. In 1996, the retired OB/GYN and cancer surgeon founded Beverly Hills Wellness Center, where he and a team of physicians and healthcare providers aim to prevent illness and provide clients with the knowledge and services they need to maintain their health and independence. Dr. Guess is also the president-elect of the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy, so his knowledge and experience informs the work of the center's International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy?certified therapist, as well.
Besides colon hydrotherapy, the health experts offer acupuncture and Oriental and Chinese herbal medicine. Additionally, the center's detoxifying treatments?which include infrared saunas, deep-tissue massages, and raw-juice cleanses?allow the body to rid itself of impurities that linger from their childhood paste-eating habit. They also offer health screenings, as part of their commitment to promoting early detection and empowering clients to monitor their own health at home.
The friendly professionals at Beverly Hills Health Center dedicate themselves to promoting overall well-being in clients through an array of health-bolstering services. Colon-hydrotherapy sessions aim to nix impacted waste, with benefits that include combating bad breath, tempering indigestion, and relieving headaches. After the treatments, which average about 45 minutes, clients tend to feel less fatigued, move more freely, and break dance more convincingly. Infrared-sauna treatments are available to supplement the hydrotherapy, enveloping the body in rays that penetrate the skin with up to 1.5 inches of depth. The saunas release toxins through the skin, thereby cleansing the system and buoying whole-body health. Detoxifying foot spas have much the same effect, drawing toxins through the feet, and the staff's trained nutritionist can help prevent toxins from entering the body in the first place. Additionally, Zerona treatments amplify health by eliminating adipose fatty tissue without surgery or wounds.
Lauded on the pages of Fit magazine, as well as on computer screens on LA.com and TVs on E! News, Vida Emanuel European Day Spa has garnered well-deserved attention for 25 years.

Clients who opt for more advanced therapies can pursue dermal-filler injections to plump fine lines, or try ultrasonic lipolysis, a painless procedure that helps pinch inches by breaking down fatty cells shaped like Twinkies.
After graduating from Cornell University, Dr. Brian Evans established a practice in California in the hopes of evolving cosmetic surgery results from the "operated" look of the past to more dramatic yet natural transformations. He bolsters youthful looks with cosmetic surgeries such as implants, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasty, and he has appeared as a cast physician on the E! Network's Dr. 90210. He and his team can beautify clients with nonsurgical procedures such as laser hair removal and laser skin rejuvenation, and they also treat patients with dermatological ailments such as acne, abnormal pigmentation, or having the same fingerprints as Al Capone.
