Custom facials tackle acne, oil, dryness, and myriad other skin problems inside Sweet Papaya Skin and Beauty Studio. Aestheticians also use microdermabrasion wands and chemical peels to combat the signs of aging, which include wrinkles and a visible set of rings for every year you live. Once dermal canvases are in order, the staff can complete new looks with facial waxing and eyelash extensions.
Beginning her career in Budapest, Erika Tolnai studied chemistry and anatomy, but she didn't aspire to be a mad scientist—her fascination was instead with beauty. After a move to the United States and further extensive training, she opened Ika's European Spa as a body care oasis. She now tends to her clients' hair, skin, and nails with an emphasis on customized treatments, which enable her to address conditions from acne to 'dos in need of color correction.
For all of her haircuts and color services, Ika uses Redken and gluten-free Baco products. She tends to skin issues with a skincare menu that takes advantage of organic Image Skincare serums as well as microdermabrasion tools and ultrasound waves that produce anti-aging effects. If that's not enough, she also waxes away unwanted hair and polishes nails, warming hands with add-ons such as paraffin wax or a two-hour handshake.
As the name implies, at Healthy Skincare Spa, healthy, nourished skin is the goal. Aestheticians achieve this in a variety of ways, depending on the client's skincare needs. Diamond-peel microdermabrasion treatments and HydraFacials employ different methods to effectively exfoliate skin and remove impurities. Aestheticians can also cater facials to clients' specific needs—they treat acne with deep-cleansing facials, fight signs of aging with anti-aging facials, and rejuvenate complexions with custom European facials. And for clients in a time crunch, express facials refresh skin in a quick 30-minute session.
