Dr. Lucia McNabb expertly enhances faces, smoothes skin, and beautifies bodies with an arsenal of aesthetic technology at Sorgente. Unwanted follicular outcroppings can be expertly diminished with laser hair removal, which, like a laser pointer, efficiently focuses on its target and is disruptive if applied in high-school classrooms. The laser uses an intense pulsed light to target the pigment in each bristle and reveal more fuzz-free skin within the first 2–3 treatments without requiring any downtime.
The motivated owner behind Tranquility In Balance Spa & Salon—who also operates as an aesthetician, nail technician, and stylist—believes that clients should inspire balance in their lives by taking time for themselves. To help clients find that balance, she offers a variety of services such as facials, pedicures, hair care, and even full spa days which can last up to five hours and include a body wrap, pedicure, facial, shampoo, blow-dry, and lunch. She also offers a full menu of salon services for men, such the Gentleman's Facial and the popular Hot Stone Back Rejuvenation.
The knowledgeable technicians and therapists of Cape Cod Nails and Spa strive to treat their clients with superlative services in a pristine, ultrahygienic environment. Clients cozy in with a complimentary cup of tea as nailcare pros gild put-upon paws with traditional polishes, no-chip OPI Axxium, CND Shellac, and gel treatments. Each nail service is insured by the salon’s Application guarantee, which promises a redo if the paint chips or quits before a set date. Their pipeless Sanijet pedicure basin is engineered for optimal cleanliness during soaks, and all nail techs keep metal tools sterilized with a dry-heat autoclave, as well as dispose of files and buffers after their first use. The salon’s living-air purification system keeps a steady flow of fresh, clean oxygen swirling past guests as they sample beauty products and aesthetic treatments.
Elizabeth Carroll struggled with skincare problems as a teenager and a young adult, inspiring her to experiment with different blemish-concealing makeup lines. She eventually began to figure out how the various products managed to provide coverage and block UV rays from the sun and low-flying spaceships without clogging pores. She applied this knowledge when designing her own foundations, highlight powders, and eye shadows, which consist of inert, vitamin-rich mineral compounds that contain no fragrances, synthetic colors, or petroleum-based products.
When she isn't designing new makeup formulas, Elizabeth lends her skills to Shear Inspiration Salon, working as an aesthetician. She exfoliates mugs with her signature dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments and performs custom facials that uniquely hydrate and cleanse.
Like the staff-designed folk art and jewelry displayed in its boutique, the spa services at Studio 137 Salon are informed by a unique artistic vision. During each beauty treatment, staffers channel their aesthetic savvy through each client's personal style to craft an image that befits its wearer. Hairstylists' sensibilities overflow into everything from simple haircuts to full cut, style, color, and retexturizing overhauls. Aestheticians brush away blemishes and skin imperfections with the help of pharmaceutical-grade Pharmagel products, and mani-pedis complete head-to-toe beauty transformations with OPI polish. In addition, full-body massages soothe sore muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques that untie knots quicker than shouting "Fire!" during a game of Twister.
