Spa on the Plaza
201 Alvarado St., Monterey (831) 647-9000, spaontheplaza.com
Skin care and especially spa care has upped its game in the last 30 years. Gone are the day of Seabreeze brand toner, Noxzema and thick mud masks. Spa on the Plaza best represents that evolution in skin care with super luxe treatments like indulgent massages using locally sourced essential oils, a super hydrating rose facial and the latest in skin tech trends: microcurrent facials using red LED lights. Who knew these colorful lights had a use outside of the dance floor?
