The staff at My Spa & Boutique aim to beautify guests in a relaxing atmosphere. Massage therapists incorporate fragrant aromatherapy into candlelit couples massages and technicians combat signs of aging during facials with ?minence Organic Skin Care products. The team's tool of choice for tightening lax skin or removing hair is the Soprano XL laser, whose skin-cooling tip and gradually heating IN-Motion technology minimize client discomfort. The device can disable follicles on any skin type, be it pale, tanned, or made of plaster.
In the salon area, experienced stylists craft custom cuts and colors and perform specialty services such as feather extensions. Tiled floors, arched doorways, and soft lighting from ornate sconces give the space an ambiance reminiscent of a Spanish hacienda.
There are many ways to banish unwanted hair, and short of learning alchemy, the stylists and aestheticians at SkinSense MediSpa & Salon have mastered nearly all of them. Armed with high-end products from Redken and Pureology, the styling team manages to deftly snip away extraneous length and split ends, leaving clients with flattering styles. On the other side of the salon, waxing artists remove unwanted hairs to reveal the smooth skin that lies beneath. And from within the salon's advanced treatment area, specialists perform SkinSense's lineup of medical treatments that includes Botox, spider-vein removal, and laser hair reduction.
Inside Suite Escape Salons of Forney, licensed massage therapist Phoebe Renee mends muscles and rubs elbows with experienced beauty techs and therapists. Guests sip on gourmet coffee and herbal tea in the lounge area as soothing music plays and candles cast a soft light that reveals any moths masquerading as humans. In her private studio, Phoebe soothes tension with Swedish massage and targets stubborn knots with deep-tissue techniques. She also offers therapeutic-massage services that split the difference between gentle Swedish and firmer deep-tissue work, as well as hot-stone and aromatherapy enhancements.
The Mona Lisa isn’t just a portrait of timeless beauty, it’s also the product of a partnership between Mona Aldridge and Lisa Erwin. The licensed massage therapists and health advocates opened the Monalisa Wellness Center with the shared goal of helping their clients improve their overall well-being in many ways, creating a sanctuary that instills calmness as spa services are performed.
The privately located center—secluded and set back from the busy streets—offers massage, facials, body treatments, acupuncture, weight-loss treatments, and other services, including custom blends of services to meet individual needs. Expert aestheticians and therapists, some with 25 years of experience, help clients detoxify and feel cleansed through services such as gentle wraps infused with a mixture of aloe vera and herbs, or Microcurrent and LED light anti-aging treatments for lifting and contouring the face and body without surgery.
Julianna Pabst and Granville Dane](http://gr.pn/v3nXG3)—the creative masterminds behind Julianna & Dane Salon and Spa—have decades of collective experience in the beauty industry. While Granville specializes in hair services, Julianna—a licensed clinical aesthetician with years of experience as a film and television makeup artist—handles the skincare and bodycare aspects of their cozy duplex spa. Her commitment to high-quality skincare hasn’t gone unnoticed: D Magazine says of Julianna, “One of her best traits is her character…she really wants to help people look their absolute best.”
A menu of body treatments relies on natural extracts culled from seaweed, papaya, and very realistic still lifes to nourish and repair skin while eliminating toxins. Skincare services treat acne-prone, aging, or sensitive skin with professional products from Pevonia and Vivant Skin Care.
Anyone who works in art restoration can tell you that to do a good job, you have to consider the piece as a whole. The aestheticians and massage therapists at Skin and Body Solutions Day Spa have the same philosophy, which is why their menu extends past facials to include body wraps, massages, and even airbrush tanning. The express facial quickly cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a custom rubberizing mask finishes perfecting with toning and hydration. Clients in the mood for heavy-duty restoration can opt for the Whole ShaBang—an 85-minute facial that includes deep cleansing, a yogurt peel, an oxygen wrap, and a seaweed mask before finishing with fireworks, flying doves, and a standing ovation. Full-body waxing services remove unwanted hair obscuring facial features, and airbrush tanning imparts a golden-brown hue. Massage services disentangle muscle knots and include a paraffin foot wrap.
