The skin specialists at The Primping Place Spa have been rejuvenating visages with a medley of restorative facials for two decades. Guests recline on a heated table while faces yield to the expert touch of salon owner, Lisa Primps, during HydraFacials, experiencing simultaneous soothing, hydration, and deep cleansing. The facial's hydrating serum-based microdermabrasion works to remove dead skin cells, resurfacing and improving the appearance of fine lines while decongesting clogged pores. A steam-cleanse and light exfoliation accompany both the glycolic peel and basic facial to better prepare mugs for refreshment or lengthy staring contests. During the basic facial, visitors can choose between either a mini aromatherapy massage or an extraction and hydrating mask. For those choosing the glycolic peel, skin savants customize the treatment to best suit individuals' skin type,leaving faces more radiant than a sunbathing glow stick.
The Primping Place Spa
Owner Lisa Primps and her team of aestheticians, electrologists, and permanent-makeup artists have dedicated the past 21 years to helping clients reach a state of relaxation via treatments that fuse alternative and clinical spa methods. In doing so, they reach for Jan Marini, Dermalogica, and Bioelements skincare products during facials and peels, which can further be enhanced with microdermabrasion and ultrasonic technology. Rather than relying on hypnosis, aestheticians safely subtract unwanted hair from the follicles with traditional waxing or electrolysis, which uses disposable gold probes. Lisa applies her aesthetic knowledge and years of experience—which includes postgraduate work at the International Dermal Institute—during telangiectasia treatments, which gently remove broken capillaries and skin tags from the face and chest.
Just as The Primping Place Spa’s treatments stay ahead of the curve, so does its decor. The reception and treatment room is decorated from floor to ceiling with renewable materials, including Benjamin Moore VOC-free Natura paint, natural-bamboo blinds, and cotton drapes. A series of potted philodendrons help cleanse the air more effectively than washing its mouth out with soap. The Spa also sells Scentsy wickless candles and offers free tastings of weight-loss shakes and cleanses from Isagenix.
