Stepping into Ariana Day Spa's cozy interior might feel like entering the home of an old friend. In the charming waiting room, printed-fabric chairs flank a plush leather couch, while a nearby table welcomes new arrivals with freshly brewed coffee, candy, and photos of you at the lake from 10 years ago. Farther inside, miniature chandeliers cast their glittering light across the floor. These elegant atmospheric touches set the stage for the spa's luxurious services, which range from the functional—waxing and mani-pedis—to the decadently relaxing—hot stone massage with eye compresses.
During the 20-minute vein-therapy session, an experienced skin clarifier flashes the high beams of Cutera CoolGlide technology on circulatory highways to dead-end unsightly spider veins. Cutaneous cobwebs are swept away as blood is heated and rerouted away from the skin's surface, much to the chagrin of blood-sucking bathrobes. Individual veins can take two to six weeks to lighten, and skin maps may take several months to fully fade away. Though patients may experience a slight stinging sensation, persons of all skin colors and types will benefit from the minimally invasive procedure.
