While most 23-year-olds were trying to figure out their career path, Angelo was busy opening his own salon. And three expansions and more than two decades later, he's still at it. Each day he works with his team of talented stylists and aestheticians to accomplish the goal he laid out in 1991: to create a one-stop beauty shop where clients could get all of their aesthetic needs met. To that end, Angelo employs nail artists who pamper the digits of patrons waiting for hair colour treatments to finish processing, as well as aestheticians who dole out rose, mud, or chocolate baths that can be paired with massages, skin treatments, or giant chocolate duckies.
The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of dirt and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Their concern for individual care shines through in the consultations that precede each treatment, during which they select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and burn marks from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.
Seasoned aesthetician Linda Hoff eschews drug-assisted treatments for all-natural, holistic wellness techniques. Drawing on years of experience, Hoff tackles chronic skin, body, and beauty conditions with services that target an extensive array of ailments. A half dozen different facials treat everything from rosacea and eczema to wrinkles and dryness. The all-natural body-sugaring process rids brows and limbs of unwanted hair and attracts smooches from puppies with low blood sugar.
As a licensed aesthetician with more than 16 years of experience, Medical Aesthetics RX's founder, Nettie, performs what she considers to be results-oriented treatment regimens. These treatments range from diamond-tip microdermabrasion and facials with fruit enzymes to photo-rejuvenation treatments, but they are all focused on creating a dramatic change in her clients' outer appearance. Skincare treatments enable Nettie to help create younger-looking complexions by reducing the appearance of age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles shaped like bird feet.
Until physicists learn how to actually turn back time, Dr. Rosanne Sutter and her team at Aazore Med Spa stay on top of the latest aesthetic trends to keep skin looking young and fresh. Their basic facials wash away oils and fight blemishes, and more advanced techniques, such as microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, slough away dull layers of skin to minimize wrinkles and age spots. For a quick fix to sagging skin, clients can explore Botox and Xeomin injections that firm up facial structures by temporarily disabling discrete muscles.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
