The treatment menu at Sun Spa enables clients to select their preferred method of tanning from a roster that includes six levels of UV tanning beds and the UV-free VersaSpa system. Inside each of the five locations, Sun Spa's bronzing booths remain available 24 hours a day, presenting patrons with the opportunity to work around unorthodox schedules or warm up after bone-chilling nightmares. A selection of lotions by Australian Gold augments the effects of light-powered tanning excursions, and a storefront display of swimwear and handmade jewelry complement newly golden glows.
Makeup artist and aesthetician Mandi O’Dell devises Bella Vita Studio & Spa's repertoire of luxurious spa services, which seek to boost the skin's natural radiance and leave bodies soft and smooth. For faces and lifelike marble busts, she cleanses pores and sloughs away dead cells with facials, chemical peels, and manual microdermabrasion treatments. Waxing services for women and men mingle with herb- and sugar-infused body treatments to cut down on wind resistance when catching a speeding pedicab, and winks find alluring magnification with luxurious eyelash extensions and lash and eyebrow tints.
As the owner of Forever Beautiful By EssJay, Susie Jackson fills her studio with the kinds of furnishings you might find at a vintage store: shabby-chic crates, repurposed dressers, and eclectic chairs. Though the studio's decorations recall the past, Jackson's service menu offers a peek into the future with advanced treatments that draw on Image Skincare products. Developed by chemists and physicians, these concoctions cleanse and exfoliate skin with plant-derived stem cells and other healthful ingredients. While Jackson tends to skin, hairstylists color tresses with Redken products and a nail technician paints nails with designs that range from simple dots to tiny reproductions of the Magna Carta.
The follicular technicians at Brow Threading whisk away facial hair with a removal procedure that's more precise than waxing, plucking, or facial-hair immolation. During the five-minute treatment, one of Brow Threading's hair-removal heroes employs intertwined pieces of thread, which trap follicles and pull them out in the same direction by the root. Hair removal lasts up to four weeks, demolishing unwanted soul patches or sculpting eyebrows into a permanent state of surprise.
Bare Essence Med Spa’s goal is to boost confidence and pamper bodies within brightly colored treatment rooms decorated with flower art and real orchids. In these rooms, aestheticians exfoliate dead skin with microdermabrasion and vitamin-C enzyme peels. They further tend to skin with facials that hydrate or fend off signs of aging or acne. A battery of Image skincare products both protects and fortifies the skin, feeding the dermis a powerful diet of nutrients, vitamins, and tears from teenage pop stars. Technicians can also erase unwanted body hair through laser treatments and help clients slim down with detoxifying body wraps made from three types of seaweed.
