La' Chic Salon and Spa’s soaring vaulted ceilings slide down to sleek bamboo flooring, over which an ensemble of nail technicians, stylists, and aestheticians buzz back and forth across as they beautify bodies from tip to tip. The spa’s glossy granite countertops gleam with the reflections of aestheticians in motion as they administer soothing spa treatments, lavishing visages in a relaxation-inducing cucumber facial and treating paws to a deluxe spa pedicure's mint sea scrub. Experienced hair gurus employ Redken and Pureology products to perform strand-reviving feats with salon services such as partial foils, special-occasion styling, and sculpting coifs into David.

When Dr. George Kamajian isn’t busy lecturing on the international circuit, publishing medical articles, or writing books, he oversees his staff of aestheticians at Dr. K’s Med Spa. His team specializes in the use of advanced technology to fight the aging process without invasive plastic surgery. Some of those results-oriented treatments include the use of Cutera lasers, bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, Fraxel laser treatments, or beauty injections. Further bolstering the team’s time-reversing skin services is a menu of spa treatments that includes peels, facials, and massages, which aim to relax, improve skin tone, and punish wrinkles for their crimes against the face.
Ridding unwanted hair from clients' bodies since 1975, the skincare specialists at European Wax Center have had plenty of time to perfect the four-step waxing process. First, a specialist cleanses the skin and layers it with pre-wax oil so the wax adheres to the hair and not the skin. Next, the specialist applies exclusive EWC Comfort Wax crafted in Paris from beeswax, which is gentler to the skin than traditional wax or wax made from ground-up rocks. Finally, after the hair has been removed, a rejuvenation product is applied to freshly waxed areas, leaving behind soft, silky-smooth skin.
Sea salts and paraffin wax transform nail treatments into deluxe manicures and pedicures at LV Nails. Feet step out of socks and fingers shake off puppets to sink into a warm bath filled with sea salts. After skin has softened during its swim, an adroit technician buffs away calluses, and a peppermint salt scrub further exfoliates the local epidermis. Lotion and warm stones facilitate a massage, which unwinds tense patty-cakers and relaxes feet stressed from wearing shoes made from LSATs. Melted paraffin seals in hydration, and warm towels sheathe digits while emitting soft puffs of steam.
