Deseret Aesthetic & Lifestyle Institute medical director Dr. Gregory Allen is a skin specialist who has contributed to FDA research and the FDA approval process. He now shares his epidermal expertise with licensed aestheticians and laser technicians as they apply permanent makeup and perform peels and facials. High-tech equipment abounds at the center, from a VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System for eliminating spider veins to a CO2 laser for reducing wrinkles. Aestheticians rely on skincare products from Derma MD and Obagi, which soothe skin so that clients don't have to cut eyeholes in a receiving blanket and wear it as a mask. An elegant vibe radiates from the spa’s cream-and-black motif, which clients first encounter in a waiting room lined with cushy suede chairs.
Whether clients are perplexed by the process of a lymph-drainage massage or unsure if their freckles resemble a young Bob Dylan, the technicians of Rainy Day Lipo can answer their health and beauty questions. Their arsenal of skincare products is as complete as their knowledge; organic, vegan, and preservative-free products rejuvenate skin during European facials, and aloe or Moroccan red clay nourish bodies during wraps. Clients can also relax with an aromatherapy treatment customized by the spa's resident aromatherapist, who takes the client's preferred fragrances into consideration before blending a new scent using mineral clays, seeds, and essential oils.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, True Essence Salon & Spa uses Aveda’s natural, plant-derived skin and hair products to beautify clients. Spa and hair care services—ranging from botanical deep-conditioning scalp treatments to rosemary mint body wraps and Caribbean therapy foot treatments—all use pure plant essences to awaken the senses as they pamper hair and body.
With multiple hairstyling stations and private treatment rooms at its disposal, the team at Plush Salon & Spa offers a variety of beauty and wellness services, including haircuts performed by stylists who receive quarterly Toni&Guy training. Body treatments include everything from facials with all-natural Astara skincare products to a French green-clay body wrap designed to balance the skin, draw out impurities, and help bodies blend in at Hulk conventions.
With more than 20 years of health-care experience under his belt, Dr. Lino Ossanna oversees the skilled staff at Allure Skin and Laser, where he works onsite. Along with Jena P. Boynton, a certified injector, the doctor and his staff turn back the clock on skin with nonsurgical services. Their intense pulsed light treatments can eliminate unwanted body hair and minimize the appearance of blemishes and leftover Halloween masks. To alleviate skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scars, they customize chemical peels and facials to each client's needs. All of their services integrate high-end products from brands such as Obagi Medical, Colorescience Pro, and Latisse.
Fuchsia lives up to its incandescent name: its hot-pink walls vibrate under shimmering chandeliers. The pink ceiling curves and cuts away to expose industrial chrome pipes reflecting the script of a neon fuchsia Fuchsia sign. Profiled by ABC's The Revolution, Good Morning Arizona, and magazines such as Everyday with Rachael Ray, the spa pampers its guests so thoroughly, it's earned a spot on Gayot's list of Top 10 Value Spas in the world.
Visitors call in or make online appointments to be bundled in body wraps, receive custom facials, or spruce up their nails. Massages take place in private suites where customers can tune into their own iPods, and hair-removal services prep parties for windstorms in velcro factories. The spa also contains a blow-dry bar, a makeup-artistry station, and shelves and racks of boutique apparel, accessories, and skincare products.
