A Valentine Luxury, Perhaps?

Spa 415 Beverly Hills

by Andrea Goodwin, associate editor (

BeansTalk is overworked, stressed out, and cranky. There simply are not enough hours in the day, and we find it amazing that when we actually have the opportunity to sleep late at night, it eludes us! What is going on! We can’t walk around with bags under our eyes. Time to go to the spa. Yes. We love ourselves enough to take time to do this. You should too. It will save your sanity.

If you live in Los Angeles, we recommend that you check out Spa 415 Beverly Hills. Spa 415 in Beverly Hills offers uniquely charming sanctuary from today’s fast paced lifestyles. Spa 415 is a day spa and medical spa that specializes in providing the latest technologically advanced procedures and products in aesthetics while featuring the finest in personal attention in a tranquil atmosphere. A true escape!

Spa 415 offers a wide array of body and mood enhancing services. If your face is a little tired and needs a perk up, we recommend trying a modern facial. Facials are this BeansTalk staffer’s favorite way to relax. At Spa 415 you can choose from aromatherapy, oxygen facials, golden spoon facials, microdermabrasion, microcurrent or vacuum facials. BeansTalk loves the idea that you could go to the Spa every day for a week and have different types of massage every day. Their massage offerings include: Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, sports therapy, lomi lomi, and hot stone. (We know for a fact that the BeansTalk ME swears by the hot stone treatment.)

BeansTalk met our friends at Spa 415 while visiting one of the Platinum Guild’s award show jewelry preview suites. Star attendees enjoyed massage and electrotherapy treatments from our friend Elma. What is electrotherapy? Electrotherapy, a Brad Pitt and Madonna favorite, uses computer controlled waveforms to contract selected muscle groups and is used to tighten muscles and drain fluid for body sculpting. We tried this treatment and found the stimulation mild and pleasant. Elma made sure to only allow a current level we were comfortable with. Other body therapies Spas 415 offers include vacudermic sculpting, and pressotherapy (for fluid drainage in the legs). We hear that the celebs enjoyed the services so much that they have been invited back to the Platinum Guild suite to pamper the stars who will be attending the Academy Awards later this month.

As Spa 415 offers complete beauty services, they also offer various scrubs, wraps, waxing, tanning, and make up services. We’ll keep you posted as we try these.
Spa 415 is located at 415 N. Crescent Drive, Suite 110, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. 310/276-8018
