Aesthetician Suzan Tajer started Ancient Secrets of Beauty in 1991, and over the years, she's specialized in two types of treatments: waxing and Lipomassage. The latter treatment attempts to fight cellulite with vacuum suction and two rollers that fold and unfold the skin. When it comes to waxing, Suzan can shape brows, erase unwanted mustaches, and make arms and legs so smooth and aerodynamic that clients accidentally take flight.
Her true specialty, however, is Brazilian waxing. Suzan saw the trend approaching way back when she opened her salon, and immediately she started developing her own techniques. Today, Suzan's quick Brazilian treatments shun strip waxing techniques in favor of wax that shrink-wraps around the hair as it dries. Her Brazilian waxing techniques have earned her a number of mentions in both local and national magazines, such as Allure and The Premier Seattle Monthly.
The trio of aestheticians at Spa Organic Boosters dedicate themselves to revitalizing clients’ appearances with technologically based procedures and premium skincare products. Their diamond-microdermabrasion treatments and resurfacing facial peels help to conceal blemishes and signs of aging by evening out skin tone. Traditional spa facials rely on botanically derived Éminence Organic Skin Care products, which nourish visages with blends of fresh fruit pulps and spices. Although their waxing services efficiently uproot stubble and leave skin smooth, the staff also offers sugaring treatments as a gentler way to remove hairs or hopelessly lost taste buds.
Shear curtains cascade down the golden, faux marbled walls of Salon La Diva. A marbled black and gray design covers each workstation, where stylists cut, color, curl, and braid hair. The full-service salon's staff also features aesthetician Maryam, who has 20 years of experience clearing dirt from pores and waxing off unwanted facial hair, liver fur, and bikini fuzz.
In the lobby of Helen Wax Spa, a waterfall burbles down an etched glass pane and into a stone basin. The water?s quiet murmur sets the tone for a space that is at once bold and soothing?modern artwork hangs on yellow, orange, and red walls and soft rays of sunlight stream in from floor-to-ceiling windows. Just beyond the main space, Helen and her technicians administer body waxing and facials for both male and female clients. Their specialty treatments use vitamin C to brighten, glycolic acid to exfoliate, and seaweed to calm and soothe the skin. And inside the onsite boutique hair salon, stylists perform cuts, color treatments, and emergency hair extensions for balding Barbie dolls.
The technicians at SHAPE Body Contouring embrace a challenge: they work to slim down the troublesome areas of the body that seem to retain fat, despite maintaining a healthy diet, exercising, and worshipping a portrait of Richard Simmons. On their side is the science of ultrasound cavitation, which noninvasively directs ultrasonic waves painlessly through the skin on common problem areas such as the stomach, arms, thighs, lower back, and buttocks. The waves cause fat cells to collapse and release their contents, which are then processed naturally by the body, leaving physiques with smoother contours and often fewer inches?results best reinforced by a fit, healthy lifestyle.
