Aqua Facial Studio
One way to rejuvenate the skin, according to aesthetician Amanda Shannon, is with fire and ice. Of course, when she says fire, she doesn’t mean flames—she uses a warming glycolic peel to deeply purge pores. Her ice is seaweed, a plant that naturally cools the skin and plumps wrinkles. Shannon provides skincare treatments—including the Fire and Ice facial—that are customizable to each client’s skin type. She also specializes in eyebrow and lash tinting as well as waxing, services she’s honed throughout more than 10 years in the industry. Each session takes place amid her mint-green studio, where tranquil music and flickering candlelight leave clients more relaxed than a spaghetti noodle floating in a jacuzzi.
