The specialists at Organic Wax & Skin Care use an organic wax crafted from beeswax, oils, and emollients. This special blend pulls triple duty exfoliating and moisturizing skin while removing unwanted hair on the body. The staff also employs diamond-tip microdermabrasion wands and custom chemical-peel blends to keep faces in tip-top shape.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
At Mind & Body Day Spa, staff members eschew fluff and pretensions to stay focused on their main goals: to help clients relax and see beautifying results. Their customized skincare treatments harness plant-based ingredients such as pineapple enzymes and pumpkin extracts, giving complexions a natural glow. Alternatively, back massages, scrubs, and wraps extend relaxation throughout the body, much like remembering that you definitely did turn the death ray off before you left the house. Spa packages combine services for more complete pampering.
The accommodating staff at Rio Tan preserves their visitors' bronze-ability and comfort with standup tanning booths that shine 360 degrees of UV-light, sunless spray-tanning options, private rooms, and complimentary refreshments. During a custom airbrush-tanning session, a skilled technician evenly applies a mist of tanning solution by hand so skin doesn't appear orange and streaky, like carrots shot out of a T-shirt cannon. Alternatively, the All-Inclusive package resurrects waning complexions with standup UV booths, up to eight Mystic spray or airbrush tans, and unlimited use of the Rio 42, 54, 60 and high-pressure booths. The booths come in variety of strengths, including high-pressure bronzing that tans skin without forcing visitors to impersonate mummies' pets. The package also includes red-light therapy (with a requirement of 24 hours between sessions), which can even out skin tone, reduce wrinkles, and shrink pores.
Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened in Buckhead under the moniker Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell, expand to seven convenient locations, and even create its own New Flo body-care line, with products available in four scents. Today, the spa’s skincare experts helm a team of licensed professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass stringent auditions before they are hired.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
