For more than 15 years, the staff at Beauty From The Inside Out has made sure the business lives up to its name. From the inside, clients are rejuvenated with the aid of colon-hydrotherapy sessions that flush away toxins and impacted waste in the lower digestive tract, and detox baths for the hands and feet pull impurities from the skin's pores. And on the outside, technicians remove hairs from the skin with full-body waxing and facial threading. Smooth skin is also achieved with PerfectSense Paraffin, treatments, which hydrate hands and feet with a warm wax made with 11 vitamins including vitamin E and B12 nutrients.
Inside Zena MedSpa, medical director Dr. Cynthia Mackeyer and her staff combine science with aesthetic treatments to beautify their clients. Guests can reduce wrinkles with Botox injections, pave the way for clearer skin with medical-grade facials, and remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and tiny planets orbiting their heads with laser services. The spa also offers photofacials and houses a variety of skincare lines, including products from Epicuren. Free parking in the rear of the building ensures that cars have plenty of room when getting wiped down with moisturizer.
It takes confidence to look George Clooney in the eye, let alone touch his hair. Oliver Ifergan has done both. He readily takes on celebrity clients from Clooney to Tom Ford, at least when he isn't busy serving as a spokesperson for Pantene or creating looks for the pages of Vanity Fair, In Style, and People. Now the owner of his own Beverly Hills Salon, Oliver uses his skills to fashion 'dos to suit starlets as well as those who simply want a trim. Oliver and his team cut and color strands inside a minimalist space designed by Jose Antonio Gonzalez. Metallic walls and curvaceous red chairs with attached sinks lend the salon a futuristic vibe, while a collection of art books, rare magazines, and people saying "hmmmm" liken it to a modern gallery. The atmosphere is an apt one for the creative staff, who snip, highlight, and texturize coifs with products from Ifergan's own line. They even complement their sense of chic with altruism—whether they're administering a simple lip wax, or lengthening locks with human-hair extensions from Hairdreams, 3% of the profits always go to charity.
Head to Yuki Sharoni Beauty & Lifestyle and ask for Raya, and there will be no doubt who you mean—no last name necessary. Mention Madonna or Tyra, though, and Raya will probably think you’re referring to her former clients. That’s because during her 20-year aesthetics career, she’s found herself standing face to facial with household names on a number of occasions. Now she’s landed at Yuki Sharoni Beauty & Lifestyle, a salon and spa praised by press outlets including American Spa and Los Angeles Business Journal. Unlike an off-the-rack straitjacket, the spot is a great fit; its amenities—a Vichy shower, a custom-made jacuzzi with 18 jets, and a wet room—are as luxurious as her services.
