Upon checking in to Suraj Spa and Salon, clients can don a plush robe and spend a few minutes in the infrared sauna. It's one way for them to literally warm up for the botanically based treatments that follow. Perhaps the most impressive of these are the spa's facials, since they make skin glow using everything from naturally derived Privai skincare and LED light to the old "lantern earrings" trick. In the salon, clients entrust their cuts and colors to stylists who trained at the esteemed Aveda Institute and who engage in annual continuing education in New York City. Even the spa's decor suggests organic beauty, since earth-toned hues blanket the walls and wood planks line the floors. White lights twinkle through the gauzy curtain that encloses the lounge, where a blossom-shaped chandelier drizzles light upon couches that surround a brick fireplace.

The experts at Supreme Skin?all licensed aestheticians?remove years from clients' faces with their microcurrent facials and fade cellulite and slim bodies with microcurrent body treatments.
