More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
At Bellisima Salon & Day Spa, the aestheticians offer more than a dozen facials. There's one designed specifically for men, and another for teens. There's a pumpkin spice facial that minimizes fine lines and smells like fall. And during the hydration facial, the aesthetician soothes dry skin with aloe and rose hips, instead of taping a sprinkler to the client's forehead.
Facials are just one of the treatments in the team's arsenal of relaxing and beautifying treatments. However, the sheer number of facials illustrates the team's belief that no two clients are exactly alike?so the more choices, the better. In all their other services, from massages to permanent makeup to hairstyling, the experts offer a similarly wide array of options, and welcome requests for customization.
A meditation room, fresh fruit, and warm teas help clients find peace at Organic Zen Spa while they enjoy therapeutic services from massage therapists and aestheticians. During lavish spa facials, aestheticians determine skin's exact needs with an analysis and then ease spirits with an upper-body massage. Using Eminence Organic skincare products, facials incorporate natural ingredients such as yam and pumpkin enzymes to replenish vitamins and essential nutrients. Clients can elongate eyelashes with silk or mink extensions in more than 600 combinations of curl, length, color, and language proficiencies. Waxing and threading services shape and remove body hair.
After treatments, customers can glide to enlightenment in the on-site meditation room, snack on tea and fresh fruit, or peruse luxury skin and body products made for spa-goers intent on smuggling serenity home.

Licensed aesthetician Juana Martinez buffs careworn visages with 60-minute private microdermabrasion treatments at Stewart Medical Group. During each treatment, Martinez gently sands epidermises with a minimally abrasive instrument that removes the thick, uneven layer of outer skin, minimizing light scars and uneven pigment caused by sun damage and semi-permanent clown makeup. The treatment also helps collagen levels to find renewed vigor, leading to smooth, even, and younger-looking complexions. Anesthetic is not used during this noninvasive procedure, as most patients report little discomfort and require no downtime.
