At Skin Spa Asheville, aestheticians utilize natural ingredients to offer soothing, noninvasive treatments that can correct skin issues and leave clients feeling beautiful and pampered. Treatments include a full slate of facials, including options that cleanse pores and attempt to work against the effects of aging. The spa also offers a variety of body-care treatments, such as wraps and waxing.
Inside the Haywood Park Hotel, licensed massage therapist and aesthetician Johnson not only pampers her clients with deep tissue massages and organic massaging facials. Johnson also features wellness services such as nutritional coaching and holistic health guidance.
Plant- and mineral-based products—never tested on animals—pamper faces and bodies during sensitively rendered services at Glow Skin. All-natural sugaring hair removal gently wipes away unwanted fuzz without hot wax or chemical additives. Therapy treatments using LED light and oxygen work to fade blemishes and scars with non-invasive bursts of light and air. Even high-tech microcurrent "face-lifts" stimulate facial muscles with both small jolts of electricity and inspirational readings on the Golden Rule.
When Jen Phumin and her mentor Janice Jones—a 40-year veteran of the beauty industry—opened their salon, they chose the name Salon Dragonfly because of the dragonfly's association with change, adventure, and prosperity in Asian culture. Together with a staff of trained stylists, they seek to fulfill their clients' desire for transformation. After consulting with guests, stylists use Aveda products during trims, formal styling, and color treatments. As they work, the salon's expansive windows bathe stylists in natural light, and dragonfly artwork and sage-hued walls inspire tranquility.
As visitors to Spa Theology slip into plush robes and slippers and nibble organic treats in the relaxation lounge, stress falls away?so does the rest of the outside world. Evoking a secluded country farmhouse perpetually filled with warm, late-afternoon light and truckloads of all-organic crops, the spa spirits guests away to a realm of rough brick walls, creamy curtains, and recessed nooks glowing with tea lights. Once pamperees have reached at least a level eight on the ahhmeter, they're ushered into a treatment room to be plied with only botanically-based, paraben-free salves.
