At Beleza Pura Spa, aestheticians bustle about, beautifying clients with a range of professional services. As one technician adorns a face with custom-blended airbrush makeup, another adds rich color to the skin with a natural Bronze Biologic tanning solution. To keep clients feeling and looking younger, skin specialists administer facials, anti-cellulite body wraps, and advanced metabolism-boosting Sudatonic treatments. The spa also hosts teen parties that allow guests to pick from a range of facial treatments.
Salon Entré Nous pampers clients with beautifying services, delivered amid a serene environment marked by brightly lit walls, contemporary art, wood floors, and simplistically sound salon stations. Each station is outfitted with oversized mirrors that lend a glimpse into each of the subtle steps involved in the hot-stone mani-pedi. Heightened by the warmth of smooth stones, this mani-pedi includes a neat nail trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition, and all handlebars and kick stands will be left feeling buttery and spry.
The SPA at Richard Francis customizes its selection of facials, massages, and hair-removal treatments to suit the diverse dermal desires of each gracious guest. Many facials, such as the hydration restoration facial, hydrate and renew ($80), while the ultrasonic anti-aging facial gently exfoliates and delivers antioxidants deep into the cells ($125). Seasoned escape artists can loosen stressful knots with one of the spa's one-hour massages: the deep tissue targets chronic muscle tension, stiffness, and soreness ($75), while the hot-stone massage's essential oils and hot basalt stones melt away stresses as though they’re wicked witches at a foam party ($115). Complete any TLC triumvirate with one of many hair-removal treatment, which can be administered in the form of eyebrow shaping ($20), lip hair hewing ($10), bikini barbering ($25), and more.
Though they call upon a wealth of skill and knowledge to personalize their beautifying skin and body treatments, the medically licensed aestheticians at Landa Cosmetic & Spa pride themselves most on establishing open lines of communication with their patients. Their uncommon empathy goes a long way in making patients feel comfortable, as does the fact that many of the medical spa's services take place under the guidance of a board-certified surgeon.
A repertoire of advanced tools assists the staff through treatments, from the ultrafine crystals that exfoliate skin during microdermabrasion facials to the purified proteins that fill out furrows during Botox injections. When they aren't rejuvenating complexions, they perform sclerotherapy treatments and remove hair with gentle Alma lasers and roll FDA-approved Endermologie devices across skin to erase unsightly cellulite.
The décor of Knockouts mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—patrons look better when they leave. After a consultation with one of the scissor-handed stylists, your Heavyweight haircut will kick off with a relaxing shampoo. As a stylist snips, shaves, and shears, direct your attention toward the many flat-screen TVs showing all the day's top sports and a few of its bottom ones, such as mixed martial horseshoes and the World's Slowest Man tournament. After the follicular wreckage is cleared with a second round of shampoo and a rinse, your stylist will treat you to a neck-tingling scalp massage before arranging head-strands to your specifications and shellacking them in place.
The Solar System's fleet of top-notch tanning beds uses varying wattages to tint bodies in a rainbow of bronzes. Horizontal and vertical UV bulbs illuminate beds from KBL and Titan Tower. The KBL Max 10 flaunts extras such as customizable aromatherapy, cooling mist, and an audio system that broadcasts personal MP3 playlists, whether they play relaxing piano concertos or practical pneumonic devices to remember the boss's favorite ice-cream flavors. The Sunless VersaSpa spray booth kisses complexions with faux sun in three minutes, misting on a natural shade that endures for up to 10 days. Professional products are also available to accelerate and extend the lifespan of tans. The salon's sunny confines are accented by orange and red hues, hardwood floors, and leather waiting-room chairs strewn with zebra-print throw pillows.
