Your Skin: A Precious Piece of Art

Thibiant Beverly Hills Day Spa

"I have designed my Day Spa to be a sanctuary…a soothing environment with a calming atmosphere…that will rescue you from all the stresses of the outside world," says Aida Thibiant, known also as "The Face Saver to the Stars" and "Guru and Grande Dame of Beauty."

Her spa takes a unique approach to every client, altering her custom-blended creams to specially serve each individual's needs. Though Thibiant retired in 2008, she continues as a consultant to her business partner Mr. Herminio Llevat and plastic surgeon Dr. Harry Glassman, who have taken the spa to new heights by opening the cutting-edge Thibiant Beverly Hills Institute of Aesthetic Medicine.

Still, despite ground-breaking technologies and a new line of individualized, certified organic skin care products, Thibiant Spa is still one of the finest traditional day spas in the West, offering European-style facials, back facials, innovative body glow treatments, detoxifying and hydrating wraps, myriad massage options and finishing touches like manicures, pedicures, waxing, hair care and professional make-up.

With so many luxurious treatments, it can be difficult to select your pampering-of -choice. We suggest the tech-savvy, all-encompassing Beauty Lift Facial, the Shiatsu Acupressure Massage), and the Contouring Clay Wrap. Of course, you can't go wrong with any of these glamour-boosting treatments, so clear your schedule for a day of true luxury. Try to make appointments at least one week in advance. Individual services are also available.

To keep up your beauty regimen away from the spa, take advantage of the spa's 30-day-money-back-guarantee and try Thibiant's skin line of cleansers, toners, moisturizers, eye care, masks and serums available online.
