9915 S. Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills
Ava Shamban, M.D. (or, as her patients call her, Dr. Ava) is one of the most well-regarded dermatologists in the entertainment world. She's a regular on The Doctors, and the trusted skin guru for Extreme Makeover. Her practice is staffed with a team of accomplished dermatologists and Physician Assistants, who are all skilled in facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. There are also super hardcore options like cosmetic lasers, botox injections, and extensive acne treatment programs—this spot is not a spa, it's the sort of place where they really clean out your pores. There's also a location in Santa Monica.
Belladonna Face and Body Clinic
230 S. Robertson Blvd., Beverly Hills
Romanian-native and owner, Michaela Corcuz, trains each of her experienced aestheticians in the art of extraction facials, moisturizing massages, and enzyme peels. Her loyal Beverly Hills clientele also swear by her bikini (and more) waxes, which she insists should always be natural and feminine-looking—no straight lines!
338 N. Canon Dr., Beverly Hills
Chocolate Sun concocts their own organic tanning sprays, made from herbs, botanicals, and antioxidants. Everyone gets a custom blend, which is then airbrushed on, meaning that the results are subtle and natural. There’s no reception area at the Beverly Hills location: It’s off an unmarked corridor on the second floor—you have to guess where to go unless someone is there to meet you. There's also a location in Santa Monica.
8944 Burton Way, Beverly Hills
Chris McMillan and his staff of stylists and colorists have a die-hard following—which can make it tough to get an appointment (with Chris in particular). But it's worth the wait. The space is relaxing and mellow, and, relative to the quality and the area, the prices here are reasonable. They also do a fantastic blow-out.
9669 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
Damone Roberts is amazing for waxing of all kind, in addition to great brow shaping services, and award-winning lash extensions.
9735 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
Francesca “Frankie” Paige has quickly become a legend in Los Angeles for her no-nonsense, results-driven facials. There's no gimmick-y spa menu or ambient music, treatments are custom-built around the client's specific skin needs, and tend to err on the intense side. Frankie herself is always booked, so ask for Erika, who is just as great. Photograph courtesy of How You Glow
Harold Lancer, M.D.
440 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills
This is actually more dermatologist's office than spa, but the microdermabrasion treatment and hydrafacial (a gentle resurfacing treatment that boasts pretty extreme results), make it a regular upkeep go-to. Dr. Lancer is one of those doctors where less is more: The less is just powerful and effective. (It's arguably best expressed by his excellent and to-the-point product line.)
8820 Burton Way, Beverly Hills
If you can get to Tracey Cunningham for color, you will not be disappointed. She's pricey, and attracts a lot of Hollywood types, but you'll walk out looking pretty amazing.
Mila Moursi Skincare
9255 Sunset Blvd., Suite 102, Beverly Hills
Mila has been taking care of many high-profile LA women for decades, all of whom swear by her skin and body treatments. More specifically, it's her European facials (tack on a dry contouring session for a bit of extra lift), "face-changing" line of skincare products, and discretion that keep everyone coming back. While the flagship spa on Sunset Boulevard is worth an in-person visit, you can also book treatments at Barneys New York outposts in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.
