1. California Cosmetics
Following the success of their debut location in Riverside County’s Corona, California Cosmetics founder Jeffrey Barczak, D.O., and wife Leah, an aesthetics nurse, have set their sights on Newport Beach. The premier anti-aging center will offer noninvasive procedures—from injectables to body contouring—plus an in-house beauty line, ENVY. “My favorite [anti-aging] treatment is our Platelet Rich Plasma facial,” says Leah. “We use your own plasma to rejuvenate and repair your skin. Not only does it tighten the skin, it helps shrink pores and restore volume. It’s [our] ‘fountain of youth’ treatment.”
2. Zianna Wellness
Center yourself from the inside out at this new luxury day spa that blends alternative, Chinese and Western medicines with a holistic approach. An expert team of practitioners will help you achieve tranquility with massages, reflexology, anti-aging facials, detox wraps, acupuncture, vegan and organic mani-pedis, spray tanning and waxing. And for true beauty buffs, endermologie (a nonsurgical procedure that targets cellulite) and Pranic healing (a practice that harmonizes the body’s energy) are also on offer. “Many of [the] products [we use] were designed specifically for Zianna and were developed using natural, indigenous ingredients like rosemary, lavender, sage and citrus,” notes owner Monica Pratt.
