At Sanctuary Salon & Spa, aesthetician Emma pampers clients' faces, ensuring they are free from skin blemishes and other common ailments. She sloughs off dead skin cells with a microdermabrasion wand to reinvigorate the top epidermal layer. Facials include a hydrating steam and galvanic currents that tighten skin for a younger-looking face. She extracts dirt from pores and exfoliates wings to help along the moulting process. With faces cared for, Emma turns her focus to the neck and shoulders with a soothing massage.
Troubled by her own struggles with dry, sensitive skin, Joanna Christiaan-Lundt decided to take a proactive approach and began learning more about basic skincare techniques. This initial research sparked her passion for aesthetics?a passion that would eventually become a career as she continued her studies, attending a formal beauty school and working alongside a physician who practiced aesthetic medicine.
At Christiann Esthetics, she applies all of this knowledge while designing personalized skincare treatments for her clients. Her facials use a variety of approaches to leave skin looking youthful and radiant. In addition to indulging skin with everything from Vitamin C-rich products to medical-grade collagen masques, she also offers chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures, which helps conceal fine lines and sun damage.
Gabrielle pampers her clients with skin and body treatments at her eponymous aesthetics spa. From classic European facials to corrective peels and microcurrents facials, her beautifying skin treatments yield the most dramatic results when performed in a series. The pampering isn't limited to the skin; however, as swedish and deep-tissue massages knead away tension and painful knots, and body wraps banish toxins and water retention. Gabrielle carries professional skincare products including Pevonia cleansers and moisturizers, as well as Medicalia products for sensitive and reactive skin, which might become passive aggressive if not properly cared for.
Sweethearts Salon & Spa's stylists and aestheticians realize that hair and beauty treatments aren't just for looking good?they also help customers feel more confident. The staff uses Paul Mitchell products to cut shaggy heads of hair into eye-catching hairdos that can be outfitted with highlights instead of glued-on laser pointers. Mani-pedis anoint fingers and toes with glimmering polish colors, and hands and feet get treated to crystal scrubs, hot towels, and massages. While receiving their beautifying treatments, guests can also enjoy a complimentary cookie or beverage.
