Inside Sophisticated Facial & Nail Spa's orange-hued, leather-lined spa space, experienced beautifiers pamper clients with Dermalogica and Aveda products. Eyebrow pruning ensures proper communication of monocle dropping astonishment by removing wayward hairs with heated wax. Additional smoothing of the upper lip leaves faces glimmering and follicle free. The 60- minute Caribbean Therapy pedicure nurtures appendages with an exfoliation, an enzymatic sea-mud mask, and a soothing hand and foot massage with Dermalogica hydrating cream and Aveda body oil. To conclude the Caribbean cruise toward beauty, nail technicians add a layer of polish before ushering guests out the door with a surprise muster drill.
Sophisticated Facial & Nail Spa
Gentle music breezes past the salmon walls at Sophisticated Facial & Nail Spa, where black, leather massage chairs rest on natural-wood floors. Nail technicians with a keen eye for artistry paint fingernails with such specialty designs as zebra print, flowers, butterflies, and near-perfect replicas of toenails. Dermalogica products nourish visages during a half-dozen different 90-minute facials, which range from an oil-and-acne treatment that uses high-frequency currents to kill bacteria to an anti-aging facial powered by hydroxyl-acid exfoliation. Private treatment rooms also host waxing procedures that leave skin smooth and hairless for longer than razors, tweezers, or stern lectures do.
