After an emergency appendectomy your LA Destination Spas Examiner is in major need of some spa therapy. While it’s a little too soon, a bit of research discovered a few good opportunities around Beverly Hills that needed to be share just in case you’re craving and aching for some primal pampering. Keep in mind that the spas of Beverly Hills aren’t cheap, but then the celebrity clientele can afford the prices. We’re talking the really rich housewives of Beverly Hills, superstars, rock stars, moguls and mavens.
Let the treatments begin:
Spa Montage at Montage Beverly Hills
A personal favorite, this ultra-deluxe facility is updating its spa menu, with new facial treatments such as The Ultimate Oxygen Facial which uses a unique blend of vitamins, antioxidants and humectants to reveal instant reduction of fine lines, improved firmness and a noticeable lift. The 90-minute service extends the ultimate skin rejuvenation treatment to the neck, hands and décolleté. Serum Infusions are also available as an add-on for extra pampering and include Vitamin A+, Vitamin C+, Antioxident and Collagen. 60 minutes at $250 for 90-minute and goes on up. Another new option is the Correcting Advanced Repair Facial, a customized results-oriented facial treatment, with a multi-acid or enzyme peel, to address specific skin conditions of the face, neck, décolleté and hands. Ideal for skin types concerned with hyperpigmentation, congested skin, fine lines and premature aging, this facial will leave you feeling more youthful and confident. 90 minute facial may include micro current lift therapy, based on skin type. 60 minutes at $250 or 90 minutes at $335. Soon to be added is an Organic Ocean Facial, which combines custom cleansing with organic seaweed extracts and pure essential oils, and the Couples Journey treatment, which combines the ancient traditions of the east with detoxifying and organic aromatherapy oils from Europe, set side by side and perfect for a romantic treat.
Aqua BABOR Beauty Spa at The Beverly Hilton-
Discovered a new spa service menu that includes a ReVersive Facial that sounds just what the post-op doc ordered. The creative treatment utilizes the time-reverse technology of BABOR RE-YOUTH COMPLEX serum. The spa director says it retains and extends skin cell lifespan and reactivates the skin’s own anti-aging mechanisms and reclaims lost radiance as it visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles. After three days in the hospital this is the way to go. Even at $185 for 50 minutes or maybe go for broke with 80 minutes at $225.
The Peninsula Spa at The Peninsula Beverly Hills
Also of interest the swank spa here has a new facial called The Bio-Ultimate Lifting Facial that is designed to lift, tone and increase elasticity, all naturally, the facial delivers unprecedented results in as little as one session. The treatment uses TAMA micro-current technology that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to ensure a luminous, lifted complexion. Low levels of electrical current trigger the body’s natural cellular repair mechanism and re-balance the magnetic energy on the face. Spa guests can customize the facial even further with additional lifting treatments beyond the facial. The treatment costs a whopping $335
The Spa at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel
Here they are offering Cinq Mondes Treatments from Paris, which include a Moroccan Ritual Scrub, Tahitian Ritual Scrub, Bali Flowers Skin Renewal Facial and a Japanese Fountain of Youth Facial—now we’re talking. The Spa also now offers The Diamond Rose Collection from Natura Bisse, the only spa in the US to offer Natura Bisse treatments and exquisite Damask rose oils and diamond dust in its luxurious treatments. Considered the queen of flowers and used since ancient times as a beauty elixir, Damask rose is believed to provide extraordinary rejuvenating and relaxing benefits. The 90-minute Diamond Rose Facial and a 90-minute Diamond Rose Body Treatment are both $395.
The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie
A new wellness program sounds like the perfect recuperating panacea. It’s called Beverly Hills balance and is in collaboration with the lifestyle agency Yada Yada Yoga. What’s on tap is a three hour day that comes with a 60 minute Yoga or Pilates session, a light breakfast with a nutritionist and a 60 minute La Prairie Signature Facial or Massage, followed by a consultation with a fitness specialist on how to stay fit when traveling. It’s not cheap at $995. A 5 ½ hour Fully Balanced package includes elements from the Half Day of Health, plus an additional 60 minute customized workout training ranging from aerobics, kick-boxing, TRX or Bar Method, Afternoon tea with a fitness specialist to discuss how to stay fit when traveling, a 60 minute Healthy Cooking Class with executive chef Kaleo Adams at The Beverly Hills Hotel, followed by the Maximum Indulgence Spa Experience, which includes a 90-minute La Prairie Signature Facial combined with a simultaneous Perfect Manicure and Pedicure costs an astromomical $1,500, will probably skip that one.
So off we go for moments of Zen.
