Plush, black chairs line the walls at Greatest Nails & Spa, cushioning clients as licensed manicurists and aestheticians pamper them from head to toe. An expansive menu of nail services cossets cuticles and keratin on hands and feet, augmenting mani-pedis with more than a dozen add-ons such as paraffin dips and 3-D designs. Enriching skin treatments and facials enlist Oro Gold, a nontoxic line of skincare products infused with 24-karat gold, to stimulate blood circulation and help coordinate complexions with ornate palace ceilings. The salon also facilitates group pampering with gatherings targeted toward bachelorette and bridal parties, as well as kid-centric soirees for girls aged 12 and younger.
With participating locations nationwide, Auto Care Special lets customers reach out to their local garages for a grab bag of free and discounted maintenance services. Cards may be redeemed for multiple vehicles over the course of one year for services such as oil changes, safety inspections, and engine-light diagnoses. Those who move or create alter-egos over the course of the year can scan the locations page for participating garages in their new cities of residence to receive a complimentary maintenance bundle.
Clients may flock to LA Eyebrow for threading—a service that reshapes the brow by using a fine cotton thread—but they stay for the custom skincare treatments. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion whisks away dead skin cells to reveal a healthy, glowing complexion, and four types of facials are enhanced with a custom mask, vitamin-rich essential oils, and skincare products from Yonka. Although the shop’s signature brow-shaping services can keep hairs from returning for up to three weeks, its eyelash extensions keep synthetic mink lashes firmly affixed for nearly twice as long. Technicians use a specially formulated adhesive that never touches the skin, allowing natural lashes to continue to grow out and giving them the freedom to come and go as they please.
Under the directing eye of board-certified internist Pankaj Karan, MD, the staff at Valley Aesthetics and Laser orchestrate an array of cosmetic services, including Botox injections, SmartLipo procedures, and Zerona body-contouring treatments. They use Fotona Dualis XS and XP Max lasers to zap spider veins, body hair, and toenail fungus and to decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Additionally, products from SkinMedica stealthily glaze across complexions to mount a surprise attack on unsuspecting acne.
Cherry-oak wood stretches across the facility's floor, including beneath the treatment rooms' bright-yellow chairs and the waiting area's brown leather chairs and flat-screen TVs.
