Inside Advanced Skin & Body Care Day Spa & Hair Studio, a full body-care team of aestheticians, stylists, and nail technicians wields their trade tools to help clients look their best and feel relaxed. With scissors and bowls of custom-mixed hair dye, stylists snip and sculpt, giving hair the kind of therapy its therapist could never give. Aestheticians apply warm wax to remove unwanted hair on faces and legs, or perform facials with the help of glycolic acid or a microdermabrasion wand. During massages, a therapist may fill a treatment room with aromatherapy scents before placing warm stones on backs that help release tension. No matter which of the spa’s services clients choose, the staff aims to provide a nurturing environment in which visitors can unwind and leave looking and feeling renewed.

Along with bodywork therapy, Kim offers a full menu of holistic-care services for adults and children, such as life coaching, reiki, and meditation with imaginary friends.

During more than two decades in the beauty industry, Charity—the head of Hair 1 and Spa 2—has amassed a wide-ranging arsenal of expertise, excelling in fields as diverse as laser hair removal and manicures. In her capacity as a stylist, her cut and color services revamp coifs, and her facials, peels, and Photo Lite age-spot treatments rejuvenate the faces beneath them. Alternatively, her massages, which include Swedish or deep tissue, dissolve stress and facilitate internal harmony. Clients can pop into her Zen-like salon or schedule an appointment for her to visit their homes or live-in solariums.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
N2U Salon & Spa's aestheticians burnish façades with custom facials performed with Oxygen Botanicals products. A 60-minute signature facial resurfaces rough texture and minimizes skin's natural plaid motif with oxygen-infused products customized to each client's skin type. Epidermal experts purify cluttered crevasses with a pore-purging steam, followed by nitpicky extractions, which rid faces of concealed dirt and oil deposits. A lavish application of a custom mask steeps skin in beneficial nutrients, and a lavender-scented hand and foot scrub relaxes phalanges and keeps hands as smooth and attractive as a magnet dipped in butter.
