It feels like a rejuvenation in more ways than one. You turn out of the bustling traffic around South Coast Plaza, make a detour onto Town Center Drive and let the valet park your car. Inside, you drop your clothes in a locker and slide on a robe, then wait in the lounge until the aesthetician comes to pick you up. In a smaller room, you slip under a single bedsheet and shut your eyes. The lights dim and relaxing piano music plays. A pair of soft hands lather your face with lotion, and then a peculiar sensation begins — like a tiny vacuum cleaner running across your face, tugging gently at the skin.

After her warm bath, Claudia Stubin said she was relaxed and her skin felt healthier. But seaweed, not bubbles, was responsible. Stubin, a Huntington Beach resident, was a first-time customer Tuesday at Seaweed Sok, a Newport Beach bathing facility that helps promote healthy skin and overall well-being. The spa, which opened in August, is the first of its kind in the United States, owner Missy Finlay said. She decided to start a seaweed soaking business after visiting Ireland, where these spas are common, she said.

-- Story by Paul Clinton, photo by Don Leach SHE IS Healing the faces All the right lights In the back room of a Costa Mesa beauty parlor, Brittany Thacker is working on a client. Lights have been strategically placed around a supine woman wearing only a white towel, plastic booties and a headband to keep the hair out of her face. Thacker works methodically, smoothing out the woman's shoulder and neck muscles. Thacker is preparing her for one of her trademark clay facials.

 One-third of 6-year-old Noelle Hermes' body is wrapped in gauze and special dressings, as it has been all her life. Every other day, Noelle must endure the painful, two-hour process of changing these bandages, which cover large sores and blisters. She has epidermolysis bullosa, a rare, genetic disorder affecting the skin's ability to stay on the body, meaning the slightest rubbing or pressure can cause the skin to tear or blister. But Noelle's kinetic spirit in no way reflects her fragile physical condition.

CLEAR UP THAT SKIN No, eating chocolate won't necessarily give you zits. Neither will popping peanuts, which are high in oil. But there are certain foods and minerals that have been scientifically proven to do some epidermal good. Eat salmon. Its omega-3 fatty acids helps thin the junk that clogs pores and can also strengthen the liver, which in turn can arm you from breakouts. If you need to watch your iodine and prefer less-salty sources, try eating lake trout and wheat germ, which are also rich in omega-3s.

Christine Carrillo Twenty-five years ago, Joan Mazzei had a vision. From it, the single mother of three transitioned her hair-styling career into a booming cosmetic business. It was a somewhat selfish response to the numerous inquiries she had received about her cosmetic talents. Longing for a more creative outlet, Mazzei, who has an educational background in art, decided to take a chance. She went to cosmetology school and has been reservedly sharing her talents ever since.

I am pleased to announce that I will have a recurring column in the Daily Pilot and Coastline Pilot. I welcome your feedback. My goal is to grapple with relevant health topics, interwoven with the colors of local personalities, enterprises, and culture - a sort of Southland medical and social tour of my own creation. To kick things off, I will be doing a series of articles on tattooing and piercing. Please contact me if you can share personal stories about these practices. All contributions can remain anonymous.

COSTA MESA — Sugar, soy, rice and cannabis — sounds like a recipe from a Cheech and Chong movie, but it's far from it. Each ingredient is actually part of the skincare and fragrance lines at one of South Coast Plaza's newest shops. Fresh opened Oct. 27 and has already sprinted past its owners' — Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg — initial projections by 50%, Glazman said. "I think it's a great demographic," Glazman said about South Coast Plaza shoppers.

It can take anywhere from one to two hours for the smell of clean clothes to infiltrate your senses at a laundromat. But Elson Lai and Chris Carey were determined to do one better. They established a company that completes a laundry cycle in just 10 minutes. There's only one difference: the material in question is skin, not fabric. The aptly named Skin Laundry offers facials that employ medical-grade lasers. It caters to on-the-go customers, providing an alternative to the beauty treatment that in some places can take 60 minutes.

I recently wrote that a bad knee kept me from running for a week. My first day back "running," I dragged, hobbled and limped 12 miles. The painful knee was irrelevant. Everything hurt. The following Wednesday I slept in and missed my buddies. Sure, I wouldn't see anyone, so I wore my rattiest running clothes. Took off for the Back Bay, looking frumpy, and ran right into Lisa and Mark with their new dog. Petting "Lolly," the Labradoodle, I told my friends of an alarming tick warning taped on a telephone pole at Irvine Avenue and Santiago Drive.

Bill Hardie can handle powerful ink - whether it comes from a needle or Jerry Brown's pen. The producer of MusInk, the annual music and tattoo festival at the OC Fair & Event Center, didn't flinch much when the governor signed recent legislation strengthening health standards for body art. This year's festival mandates hand-washing stations in each vendor's booth. And that's all that's different, according to Hardie, who for years has made a point of making his festival as clean and friendly as possible.

The current exhibition at Laguna Beach's venerable BC Space Gallery entitled Skin Deep presents compelling works by two quite different artists that is far from the superficial implications of its title. Richard Hutter, a former Marine, and Dao Nguyen, a Vietnamese national who emigrated to this country in 1975, have compelling back stories that add much deeper meanings to this show. Richard Hutter initially seems to be exploring safe ground with his research of vintage slides of anonymous family events.

Tuyet Luong, 36, of Anaheim, faces up to six years in prison if convicted of practicing medicine without a license and causing great bodily injury after she used a laser on one of her clients.

So many others have picked the election of Barack Obama to the presidency apart, but there is one discussion I have not seen. It’s a bit complex, but bear with me as I try to get this point across. Not long ago, a father of a particular Newport Beach high school student was beside himself. He had picked up his daughter’s phone to make a call and found a text message that contained a racial slur sent to her. And a bad one at that. “If I had used that word growing up, or if I had shown any indication that I had even thought about discriminating in that way, I would have been thrown out of the house.
