After spending years in skincare and aesthetics, Leila Espari decided to take her experience and certifications and open her own business. She stacked her staff roster with such professionals as a board-certified plastic surgeon, a waxing specialist, a laser technician, aestheticians, and licensed massage therapists. The cozy day spa offers services such as massage therapy, lash extensions, and hair removal via laser, electrolysis, waxing, or threading. Other skin-smoothing treatments include facials and micro-polish peels that gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells and flakes caused by dry skin or aggressive cereal eating. A special tissue massager reduces the appearance of cellulite and dimples.
Harnessing the tempered pulses of laser technology, Gente Spa Laser Center?s technicians have removed fine and coarse hairs from skin surfaces for more than 15 years. The GentleMax laser removes follicles with minimal discomfort due to its small size and cooling system. During each treatment, a medical professional runs a handheld wand over patches of hair, applying therapeutic heat to raise each strand. A laser pulse then dislodges the hair and a pulse of cooling cryogen spray coats the area just like an unbalanced basketball coach covers the floor in maple syrup before practice.
The house laser also powers other services as well. The targeted beams can get to the root of toenail fungus problems to leave feet sandal-ready. And during skin-tightening and facial services, lasers revitalize the skin to leave it looking more youthful and minimize the appearance of age spots or birth marks.
The confidence of A 2 Z Hair Studio's staff of hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians puts clients at ease as soon as they enter the day spa. In addition to routinely seeking out techniques and mastering new trends, the team members employ professional-grade products in their everyday treatments. These lines include everything from Moroccanoil and Goldwell hair-conditioning balms to Shellac and OPI nail polishes. Equipped with high-end shampoos and conditioners, the stylists can recreate a classical look or devise a more modern hairdo by incorporating asymmetry or holographic bangs. Beyond hairdos, the staff can also pamper its clients with indulgent mani-pedis, body treatments, and facials that rejuvenate skin tone using 24-karat gold, Vitamin C-rich salves, or a customized selection of skincare products.
No matter what your hair type of texture, the stylists at Nolas Salon can tame it and leave it looking its best. The team draws upon a wide range of high-quality products to help in this quest: there are Brazilian Blowout treatments to smooth hair, DevaCurl products to enhance natural curls, Nioxin solutions to help those suffering from thinning hair, and tonics by Paul Mitchell, Redken, Kerastase, and Moroccanoil for every hair type in-between. Meanwhile, on the spa side of the business, aestheticians perform facials with Seacret Dead Sea products to help hydrate dry skin and remove acne-causing dirt and oil, while makeup artists enhance natural beauty with Jane Iredale cosmetics or permanent makeup.
A regal lobby welcomes guests into Georgetown Electrolysis Skin Care, with swirled wallpaper accenting a corner fireplace, around which a chaise, an ottoman, and plush couches are situated. As they pass under a crystal-dripped chandelier and into private treatment rooms, guests will discover that the staff members who perform each service mirror the coziness of their confines. The spa’s specialties include deep-cleansing facials, massage, and body wraps that battle cellulite and unwanted inches. Staff members also use electrolysis and laser hair removal to permanently oust unwanted fuzz from the body, as well as from sheep who plan to retire to the Caribbean.
At Royal Essence Skincare and Nailspa, creature comforts are a top priority. This is why the spa invested in Renalta pedicure chairs, fully sanitized with attached whirlpools and pipeless technology that make for bacteria-free footbaths and pedicures. The staff does their part too. While clients kick back on the new chairs and visualize they are the heir to a medieval throne, the staff pampers them with massages, hot towel treatments, and signature facials. In addition to mani-pedis, Royal Essence offers facials, eyelash extensions, and organic full-body waxing.
