Featured at two star-studded award ceremonies in 2011, Balensi's Institute Skin Care & Spa makes everyday clients feel like VIPs with luxurious spa services. Guest pass by a water fountain and tropical plants as they enter a cozy, renovated bungalow that dates back to 1910, the same year that the Great Sphinx had her first microdermabrasion. Medical aesthetician Lorena Balensi performs most treatments—from facials to enzyme peels—with pharmaceutical-grade products. For more than 10 years, certified medical assistant Jean-Michel Balensi has applied principles of color theory, facial geometry, design/application, skin health and wound healing, anatomy and physiology to all aspects of his craft, servicing more than 3,000 clients. Applied one by one, his ocular artistry of eyelash extensions give eyelids the volume and length to attract compliments or entire butterfly colonies. Massage therapies include relaxing and healing modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, stone, pre-natel, and sports massage. Garden fountains perform a liquid symphony for patrons who relax at a shaded outdoor patio.
Drawing from more than 25 years of experience working in the med-spa and cosmetic-surgery field, Kathleen Rocca harnesses her knowledge and skills as a clinical aesthetician at her own skincare and anti-aging haven: Eastlake Rejuvenation Center. Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.
In addition to helping area residents look and feel better, Rocca stays involved with her community on a grander scale, sharing beauty advice on Fox 6 news and serving as the president of the Bonita Business & Professional Association.

Dr. Melinda Silva specializes in balance. She earned a Compassionate Physician Award from her patients for balancing emotional connection and clinical savvy, but she can also balance more concrete entities: hormones. Her bioidentical-hormone therapies alleviate the imbalances that can cause issues from mood swings to obesity. To complement them, Dr. Silva prescribes lifestyle changes such as diet alterations, new fitness regimens, and healthier sleep routines. Her clinic handles aesthetic concerns just as adeptly as medical ones, with noninvasive physique-contouring Exilis treatments, wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, and chemical peels.
Lipolaser Mission Valley helps clients purge bodies of excess fat, revealing smooth curves and lean muscles. The clinic's new lipolaser machine performs in half the time of most machines. During 20-minute sessions, a medical professional places the apparatus in trouble spots around the waist and hips as a cold laser shrinks fat cells that sit millimeters below the skin. Then, people stand on the vibration platform to warm their muscles, increase circulation, and finally be able to move like a hummingbird. The targeted fat drains naturally through the lymphatic system, with the goal of removing inches from the waistline and hips.
Working under the umbrella name Mitre Spa are a number of independent technicians, who together provide everything from microdermabrasion to massage. One such specialist is Mary Speer of Beaming Smiles, who performs not only skin treatments such as facials, but also a special teeth-whitening treatment known as Beaming White. This treatment uses a high-grade peroxide gel to beautify teeth. A blue light activates the gel, allowing the peroxide to reach deeper into teeth to brighten smiles in about one hour.
