At G. Skin Therapy, licensed clinical aesthetician and professional television makeup artist Glenda Engelbach uses advanced technology and clinical-grade products to beautify skin. After receiving a degree from the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics, Engelbach went on to complete post-graduate certification at the renowned International Dermal Institute. She is also certified in a number of innovative facial techniques, such as dermaplaning, and in the use of therapeutic and organic lines that include PCA Skin and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. This combination of expertise in high-quality methods and products helped her earn recognition on Applaud Women magazine's 2011 Readers' Choice awards in the Best Facial category.
Engelbach employs the Trios intense-pulsed-light system to rejuvenate skin, remove hair, and clear complexions of acne. She also addresses skin concerns such as rosacea, age spots, and wrinkles, as well as sun damage caused by literally living under a magnifying glass.
Much like finding the best-fitting jeans, shoes, and hat-sized hatchbacks, the right tanning solution requires trying out different sunning equipment. This package offers you the ability to try out all five options with five separate visits, including the sunless VersaSpa. Each bed has different features, so start your tour with a baste in the fast tanning bed, a 20-minute process with high-quality lamps for base-tan building, and spend the next session sampling the faster tanning bed, which allows pallid patrons to quickly achieve a base tan and evens out stubborn tan lines. The fastest tanning bed mixes UVA and UVB to build a solid base tan in as few as four sessions, and the instant tanning bed offers the highest-intensity lamps; because of its lower levels of reddening UVB rays, the instant bed is a good choice for fair dermises that burn easily or have difficulties darkening under the Sun Meister's steely glare. For your last session, harness the power of plant-based VersaSpa solutions to provide a natural, even-tonal transformation. Standing upright in the VersaSpa Sunless Tanning Booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution of anti-aging formula or UV skin-defining maximizer. After a few minutes, your body is dry to the touch.
Deep-cushioned beds, heated blankets, and a roaring fireplace telegraph the DayDreams Day Spa staff's intention to fully relax clients. They beckon guests to unwind during facials, massages, and body wraps by filling the air with custom blends of aromatherapy oils and by supplementing facials with hand treatments delivered with heated mitts. Certified to wield professional products, the team relies on PCA Skin products for correcting fine lines, acne, and dark spots, and they beautify faces with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.
Licensed aesthetician Aimee Soles helms Aimee Nicole Esthetics, where she works to emphasize her customers' natural skin with a variety of services. Her customized facial treatments combat acne or dryness by exfoliating, hydrating, and cleansing. Waxing services remove unwanted body hair from areas such as the back, chest, legs, or face. Other treatments include eyebrow and eyelash tints, paraffin masks, and skin consultations.
When not instructing prospective aestheticians in the intricacies of her trade, Karla Smith focuses her skills on corralling facial and bodily follicles through waxing, sugaring, and tinting treatments. Coats of hot wax or all-natural sugaring formula cling to unwanted hair before cloth strips swiftly remove only the bristles the serums touch, allowing Karla the precision needed to craft arched brows, sleek bikini lines, and Shakespearean verses in buzzed heads of hair. The follicle-focused salon also pampers complexions by incorporating a skin analysis, at-home recommendations, and soothing massages into each of its five facials.
Elvira McCloskey hails from the Dominican Republic, where she first started out in the beauty industry. Today she works inside Salon 7 Elm, having racked up 20 years of experience in the interim. The licensed aesthetician and expert makeup artist makes it her mission to rescue faces from acne, scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and monster impressions that got stuck that way. She comes to their aid with treatments such as facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and makeup applications. Clients await their rejuvenation in a lobby that evokes a cozy woodland haven on a stormy day, with wooden floors and round brown armchairs backed by a sprawling mural of a tree just beginning to bud.
