Every appointment at Eve Michael Salon & Spa is designed to be an indulgent escape for clients. But an emphasis on relaxation doesn't mean the staff skimps on services. Rather, the team relies on cosmetic products selected for both their efficacy and their natural formulas. Aestheticians employ Yon-Ka's essential oils and plant extracts to hydrate and cleanse the skin during facial treatments. To better remove unwanted stubble, they use strip or hard waxes on the body, and gentle lavender and chamomile formulas on the face. The salon's stylists only need their shears and hair-whispering skills to design eye-catching new 'dos, although they can add colorful accents with Wella tints. Should additional pampering be in order, massage therapists soothe tense muscles with Swedish or deep-tissue modalities, or more specialized reflexology techniques.
Before carrying out soothing services such as facials, mani-pedis, and waxing, the staff at Razelle’s Skin Care Salon consult with each client to determine their individual needs. Treatments use Decleor skincare products infused with therapeutic aroma essences. Aestheticians exfoliate, nourish and brighten complexions with skin peels or tackle issues such as acne, fine lines, or dehydrated skin.
Bagardi Laser Center's certified technicians help to reduce the appearance of unsightly veins on all body areas with the Candela GentleMax laser system, which has been featured on TV shows such as Rachel Ray and The Doctors. After an informative consultation determines candidacy and which vein most resembles Michael Jordan's autograph, an experienced staff member beams the GentleMax device onto the desired treatment area. Light energy targets heme dwelling inside the offending blood vessels, swiftly collapses them, and diminishes their appearance during each 20- to 30-minute session. Coolants attached to the device comfort skin of all types, which can reach optimum clarity in four to six sessions. Appointments are available seven days a week. Once inside, pastel purple walls enclose Bagardi Laser Center's treatment and waiting rooms and a checkered tile floor adds more color without having to harvest the tears of a prism.
Zen Zone Acupuncture and Spa’s original menu of services included traditional acupuncture and Chinese herbal-medicine treatments, but has expanded over the past five years thanks to a growing team, which includes a medical director who is also a plastic surgeon, an acupuncturist/herbalist, and a laser specialist. The team now treats clients with dermal fillers and detox programs, wields the Candela GentleLase laser to remove unwanted hair, and supervises a smoking-cessation program to wean clients off nicotine. Massage therapists deploy hot stones and natural essential oils to relieve aches and pains, and those trained in Chinese and Japanese acupuncture aim to erase facial wrinkles, soothe digestive issues, and rebalance people who feel off-kilter.
When its doors first opened, Hair Garden Salon became a dream fulfilled for owner Maria Affeln. She developed a passion for hairstyling as a teenager in Brazil, which she pursued after moving to the U.S., training across the country until she had the skill set and resources to open her own salon. Her philosophy is that hair should be treated like a plant—constantly nourished and checked for rabbit warrens—to make sure it receives the proper nutrients and grows healthily. She and her staff use OrganiColorSystem color, perm, and keratin products that transform hair without harmful chemicals. The roster of services also includes haircuts for men and women, lash extensions, and waxing services.
