A 2011 Los Angeles Times reader’s choice winner in the San Gabriel Valley region, Amadeus Spa’s seasoned epidermal doters harness the power of the world’s smiley-est fruit to renew and rejuvenate damaged skin. Brimming with natural pumpkin enzymes, the peel’s nutrient rich formula delves deep into sun damage and evicts dulling skin cells, infusing the face with a blend of antioxidants designed to reassemble the skin’s scattered building blocks and forge a flashy new Lego tower of youthfulness. The peel polishes skin of every type, and its gentle but powerful potion is especially suited to sensitive faces or pie crusts. Mugs can bask in a single 20–30-minute treatment for a speedy skin revamp, or amass a trio of treatments to keep appearances revitalized across several months.
Cofounder Tina Mui-Wong boasts a passion for the beauty industry that spurred her to earn a cosmetology license before completing high school and establish a pair of spas that have thrived for more than 25 years. In a 2010 interview with Pasadena Magazine, Mui-Wong admits to being a "product freak," which is reflected in her role as developer of Amadeus's signature line, T.E.A. The staff and salon has appeared in the film Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, graced television screens on ABC's Extreme Makeover, and exhibited their handiwork on the Rose Bowl queen and her court of chrysanthemum noblesse for two decades.
Amadeus takes pride in its custom massages, and re-trains every nail technician in-house to ensure updated mastery of the hand jive. Guests receive slippers, robes, and complimentary skin consultations upon request, and may pad down the scented hallways after their treatment to decompress in a eucalyptus steam room.
