Overseen by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michael Santillanes—whose UCLA and USC credentials have also led him to instruct fledgling surgeons in his specialties—The Skin Care Clinic's staff unlocks the inherent natural beauty in clients with age-defying services. They specialize in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, including injectables and dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane, chemical peels, and photo rejuvenation. They also refine entire bodies through laser hair removal, scar removal, and VelaShape cellulite-removal treatments that, like a shy SWAT team, are also minimally invasive.
Body-wrap use dates back to ancient Egypt, where they were used to detoxify, remove excess fat and tissue fluid, restore minerals, and acquire an attractive figure for mummy season. After a core-coddling cocooning, The Body Wrap's clients are guaranteed to experience a loss of 6–20 inches while detoxifying their bodies—resulting in a svelte figure that easily shimmies into packed elevators and tucks behind trees during hide-and-seek. An express facial tops off the treatment with skin analysis, cleansing, exfoliation, and toning of the ol' skull mask. An initial wrap session takes about two hours to complete and requires some preparatory steps to achieve optimal results.

The skilled shutterbugs at Mi Amor Studio capture flattering, intimate angles during tasteful boudoir photo shoots. They aim to cultivate a glamorous experience for all subjects, enlisting professional makeup artists and hairstylists to elevate the natural beauty of each subject to camera-ready works of art. The encouraging photographers put subjects at ease while helping them strike appealing poses and plying them with chic beverages and hors d'oeuvres. The sensual images can then be burned on CDs, immortalized in picture books that brim with up to 75 photos, or printed and tucked between the pages of the library’s copy of On the Origin of Species. In addition to boudoir services, Mi Amor Studio offers hair services such as keratin blow-outs, highlights, conditioning treatments, and haircuts for women, men and children. Airbrush tanning, manicures, and pedicures round out the salon's services.
