Tucked inside a cozy studio within InStyle Salon & Spa Suites, Face Value Skin Spa whisks male and female clients into a realm of relaxation. Here, a team of talented aestheticians help clients achieve states of beautified Zen through custom-blend Bioelements facials, Brazilian waxing for men and women, as well as speed waxing and eyebrow design. They also brandish Bioelements products while divvying out a dozen different facials that range from a deep-cleansing signature treatment to a potent acne-clearing facial laden with antioxidants. The crew also attacks hirsute skin, removing hair from backs, chests, and faces with Cirepil wax, or wielding light-based hair-removal techniques to deliver a more permanent punch and thwart hair regrowth across the body.
Executive Tans’ friendly, Smart Tan–certified staff guides customers through six different levels of tanning beds seven days a week. From basic 15-minute systems to advanced high-pressure tanners, each bed is located in a room that's also equipped with satellite radio. Instead of exposing their skin to UV rays or waiting for a bear hug from King Midas, customers can turn to a trained technician for a sunless spray tan. Using a fast-acting formula that simultaneously firms up skin thanks to an antioxidant-packed solution, bronzing levels can be customized for each individual's skin tone.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
Though masters of aesthetics, the staff members at Aleyra MediSpa care first about skin’s underlying health. Medical director and practicing physician Shahwar Syed not only oversees the beauty-based operations, but also provides skin-cancer screenings to Aleyra’s patients, analyzing layers of skin beyond the surface with the Clarity Pro Assessment system. To enhance appearances, the team treats such conditions as age spots, rosacea, aging skin, unwanted hair growth, uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation. They also can tailor maintenance regimens so that clients can uphold their looks at home or on multi-thousand-year voyages to Jupiter.
Since the first Fantastic Sams salon opened its doors 35 years ago, stylists at each locally owned and operated franchise have stayed up to date on the latest industry trends. Before each haircut, a stylist shampoos the scalp for three minutes to relieve tension and cleanse the mane of any gels or Gak. In addition to coiffing or coloring tresses, stylists trim beards and mustaches and wax lips and eyebrows. An exclusive line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products nourish hair with pro-vitamins, soy protein, and silicone.
