The kind, experienced beautifiers at Bamboo Hair & Body help tired, sore bodies get back into their groove with a full roster of relaxing services. Prices for each service vary by staff member, but all prettifying procedures happen in Bamboo's calm, serene environment. Tame unruly locks with a sleek, professional haircut ($55–$85), or moisturize, sugar-scrub, and deliver wandering vitamins to hands and foot-hands during a manicure and pedicure ($80). A custom, 60-minute massage eases knots, tension, and backs' pressure to continuously offer moral support ($80–$85). Give skin a new, softened coat with a 60-minute classic facial ($80) or stimulate proper energy flow with a pain-relieving, 60-minute acupuncture and massage session ($80). This Groupon can also be used toward the cost of upgraded services, such as a longer massage or acupuncture treatment.
The countenance curators at Abundance stare down surgical anti-aging services by guarding maturing faces with a litany of noninvasive facial services that calls upon innovative devices and top-notch skincare products. The 45-minute premium anti-aging facial defends mugs with a trifecta of skin treatments, beginning with an alpha-hydroxy-infused peel exfoliation—harvested from sugar, milk, fruits, and vegetables—that gently exorcises pore-clogging, comatose skin cells. Then an LED photomodulation treatment lights up expression makers, employing the GentleWaves system to help increase natural collagen production and battle hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and skin loosened by excessive use of rocket-powered riding lawn mowers. Lastly, wayward facial muscles are returned to their long-lost homes, navigated by the microcurrent-emitting NuFace handheld toning device, which can contour cheeks, raise eyebrows, and dissipate under-eye puffiness, all without the use of overbearing skin sherpas.
Before establishing Rejuvenation Skin and Body Wellness, aestheticians Veronica and Oralia sharpened their aesthetic skills in the beauty industry for nearly a decade. During this time, which included a stint working as a skincare expert for Erno Laszlo, Veronica learned the ins and outs of microcurrent therapy, which she uses to firm aging skin. As for Oralia, she not only customizes skincare services, but also focuses on beautifying faces with makeup applications—a skill she honed while working for Stila Cosmetics and Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. Both seasoned skincare specialists offer custom European facials, full-body waxing, and five different types of peels.
Theresa, the aesthetician at Rejuvinate & Eternity, came upon her profession after her own struggle with skin conditions led to regular visits with skincare professionals. Seeing how maintenance programs could reduce and prevent skin outbreaks, she took up skin physiology and chemistry and relayed her experience and knowledge into her own practice. Now, Theresa pares down signs of acne, stress lines, and loose pores with facials for women, men, and teens. She cites rejuvenation and relaxation as the goals of her practice and complements skincare regimens with hot-stone treatments that remove toxins and relax muscles bound up by tension and stress. Theresa also travels to her clients’ homes to perform facials for a convenient and private treatment.
At Wat Po Thai Spa, a 2010 nominee for Best Day Spa by Best of LA, technicians bolster well-being with services that range from traditional Thai massage to skincare. The house-specialty Thai Combo fuses Thai massage, Swedish massage, and reflexology into an international amalgamation of relaxation similar to naptime at the UN. Thai massage harnesses compression, stretching, and rocking techniques to improve circulation of vital energy along the body's pathways, and Swedish massage encompasses gentle strokes such as gliding, kneading, and stretching to increase oxygen flow in the blood and forge full-body tension relief. Patrons walk away from massage sessions with relieved stress, allayed aches, increased internal alignment, and enough flexibility to fold bodies into an empty Pringles can at the first sign of danger.
