When you’re in need of head-to-toe pampering, make your way to Spa Montage at the Montage Beverly Hills. Not only are a variety of massage, facial and body treatments at your fingertips, but you can make a full day out of your experience by relaxing in the 20,000 square-foot spa’s tiled co-ed whirlpool and gender specific whirlpools, redwood saunas and Turkish steam rooms. No matter if you’re hitting the red carpet or summoning a black car to whisk you away to dinner, the spa’s new Illuminating Body Treatment (60 or 90 minutes $225/$305) will have your skin sparkling. During this results-driven treatment you’ll be exfoliated from head to toe, buffed to perfection and slathered with a skin peel. After this relaxing service, your skin will be glowing, smooth and luxuriously hydrated. You can also add on an express brightening facial and décolleté treatment or opt for the spa’s “Red Carpet Ready” special ($1,200) where you can bundle your Illuminating Body Treatment with a champagne toast, Deluxe Caviar Facial and a rejuvenating Beverly Hills Manicure and Pedicure. Your afternoon of pampering ends with a personalized red carpet hair style and makeup session at the renowned Kim Vo Salon.
Spa at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is known for pampering Hollywood’s elite all year round with its luxurious rooms and A-list spa. What is the newest, most effective treatment they have on their menu? Check out the hour-long Diamond Youth Facial ($305). It’s a high tech treatment that incorporates Envy Medical’s cutting edge diamond-tipped SilkPeel Dermalinfusion machine and Innovative Skincare products. After cleansing your skin with iS CLINICAL Cleansing Complex, your esthetician utilizes the machine’s patented diamond-tip vacuum technology to exfoliate the dull, outer layers of your skin while pumping in a customized serum of hyaluronic acid and aloe to plump up lines, lighten dark spots and clear pores. The machine is more effective than exfoliating and applying serums with your hands because it can better penetrate your layers of skin. Once your face has been revitalized, enjoy a facial massage with honey-lavender massage cream, followed by a rejuvenating mask with eucalyptus and aloe in combination with an even more relaxing arm and hand massage. After the mask and massage, you’ll be layered with Hydra-Cool Serum, Youth Eye Complex and new Youth Serum and finally the Extreme Protect SPF 30. While you’ll be read carpet ready once you leave the spa, our esthetician said you’ll be at your best the day after the treatment.
Spa at the Peninsula Beverly Hills
The Peninsula Hotel’s spa is a Beverly Hills gem—literally. The spa was one of the first in the country to offer Shiffa precious gem oils, which—from diamonds, to emeralds to rubies—contain actual fragments of the precious stones that in turn carry out specific healing properties. During the spa’s signature hour-long Gemstone Revival treatment ($225) you are indulged with a full body scrub followed by a soothing back, neck and shoulder massage. The only thing you have to do is customize your experience by selecting one of the four gemstone oils: Diamond Luxury Oil for balance and harmony; Emerald for stability and strength; Ruby representing stimulation and vitality; or Sapphire for peace and tranquility. Depending on what your body needs you can also opt for a massage that is tailored around a specific gemstone; or go for the head-to-toe Shiffa Total Healing Journey (75 minutes/$315) where you’ll enjoy a gemstone oil massage of your choosing, and in addition your face will be cleansed and purified and Shiffa facial serum will be applied to face, neck and décolleté using jade rollers to tone and refresh.
