Skintastic's certified technicians blend technology with medical-grade skincare products in their attempts to revitalize faces and restore skin health. Complimentary consultations begin each service, during which a skincare expert checks to see if clients' faces have any existing skin conditions or are actually balloons hiding behind masks. Skilled hands coat faces in either Sensi or Esthetique chemical peels, which battle conditions such as acne, rosacea and hyper-pigmentation for 45–60 minutes, all while helping topical products penetrate the skin's many layers. During microdermabrasions, technicians employ a DiamondTome wand that polishes skin with diamond chips and vacuums as it removes the topmost layer. The treatments, which vary in length based on each client's skin condition, can render softer, smoother skin without causing any need for downtime.
At iSilhouette, techs unholster ultrasound-spraying hand pieces to help clients shuck layers of fat, leaving behind slender frames without resorting to surgery. The sleek black devices send the waves deep into unwanted fat cells, destroying them. The body then metabolizes these broken cells, flushing them out through the lymphatic system and leaving skin firmer and smoother than a seal training for Mr. Universe. Apart from the headlining slimming treatment, the onsite spa delivers a host of other beautifying and relaxing services, such as massages and facials, as well as hairstyling services that include foil highlights, straightening, and formal updos.
