Befitting its name, Glow Skincare Studio strives to restore clients' youthful radiance with specialized spa treatments that reinvigorate aging skin. Customized facial treatments use aromatherapy oils and a gentle massage to create a thoroughly indulgent experience while the aesthetician cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the client's skin. Chemical peels dramatically improve tone and texture by unmasking the healthy layers of skin just beneath the surface, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and Sharpie mustaches. During body wrap treatments, clients rest within a cocoon of salves and balms that infuse skin with vital nutrients and minerals.
A picture of a serene pond dappled with water lilies seems to imbue the treatment room at Trocoa Skin Acumen with the calm of a woodland hideaway. Candles glow by the floral bedspread and the gray-green walls, chasing stress from clients' minds as aestheticians pamper skin with custom facials that treat a range of conditions. The Urban Renewal facial, for example, uses the powerful antioxidant vitamin C to reverse sun and environmental damage caused by bathing in radiation in order to gain superpowers. Fruit acids shrink blemishes during the Defiant Acne facial, and the sensitive-skin facial likewise channels natural ingredients, including chamomile and green tea.
Though the spa's staff members specialize in these examples of noninvasive skincare, they also administer chemical peels, waxing services, permanent makeup, and teeth-whitening treatments.
