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.
When Andrea Kane first opened her massage practice she was
doling out deep-tissue massages to athletes and chronic-pain sufferers from inside her own home. Today, her business has grown, expanding to a service menu that now includes Andrea's other specialties including chemical peels, waxing, and sugaring treatments. A natural alternative to waxing, sugaring is gentle enough for all skin types, and, unlike some salons that reserve the service only for women, Andrea will gladly book hair-removal treatments for men or lifelike mannequins.
Malahini Day Spa uses everything from aromatherapy to papaya to ensure each customer looks like they’re time traveling during signature facials. During the photorejuvenation time-machine treatment, a mask aims to boost collagen production by 50%, firming skin and reducing melanin production to create the illusion of younger skin. Along with facials and microdermabrasion treatments, the spa's skilled staff also performs soothing massages, body wraps, and waxing services.
Whether it's helping significant others bond with a couple's massage or relieving the symptoms of arthritis with acupuncture, Lavender Day Spa serves as a conduit between bodies, minds, and emotions. The multitalented staff issues these bodywork treatments alongside facials and waxing, cultivating a diverse treatment menu—but if the wealth of services overwhelms you, a consultation can help steer you in the right direction.
