At Comfort & Joy Wellness Spa, a team of aestheticians and massage therapists restores clients’ balance of tranquility, health, and beauty with ayurvedic treatments and organic products. Heated herbal packs, drizzles of warm oil, and the sound of whales singing Kenny G usher in peace during the Shirodhara ritual. Moroccan salt-glow body scrubs burnish skin with Dead Sea minerals and tangerine essential oil for dewy complexions. Staff members also perform European-inspired services with Epicuren and suki skincare products, SpaRitual vegan nail lacquer, and natural hair-coloring lines.
Aesthetics by Connie is helmed by a licensed clinical aesthetician with a background in biochemistry. For more than 13 years, Connie has treated clients with facial treatments, peels, and microdermabrasion. In her services—which also include oxygen infusions and eyelash extensions—she uses pharmaceutical-grade products from brands such as Dermalogica.
The aestheticians at Elume Medical Spa work to address skin's problems, including fine lines and blemishes, using advanced med-spa technology and meticulous traditional skincare services. The skin experts use products from brands such as Obagi and Physician’s Choice, which draw from natural botanicals to plump skin by boosting collagen production, drench skin in moisture, and close up pores with oil-busting acids and by feeding them sticky peanut butter. More advanced skincare solutions include IPL lasers and SkinTyte therapy to help minimize fine lines and eradicate signs of sun damage.
Dr. Ahmad Ellini, MD, received aesthetic training under the esteemed Dr. Zein E. Obagi and Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr., the founding fathers of the Obagi Skin Health Institute and the photofacial, respectively. Relying on his expertise, Dr. Ellini and his team carefully examine each patient’s pores so that they can recommend the most suitable facial, peel, laser treatment, or dose of injectables. The aestheticians on staff are well-versed in exfoliation and hair-removal techniques, as well as mineral-makeup application.
Within the brightly lit space of Kim Sun Young Beauty Salon, wall-mounted mirrors reflect the artful shearing techniques of both junior and senior stylists. The sculptors craft new hairdos and revamp styled locks with coloring and straightening services, including the salon’s signature "panel straight" style. They also perform services that range from comprehensive wedding packages to advanced beauty care in the form of human-hair extensions, skin treatments, and semi-permanent makeup applications that make mascara feel as obsolete as a handwritten invite to a cave-drawing contest.
If mirrors on the wall could talk, they might recommend that the reflected subject consider a new look, and a fresh, people-oriented approach to conversation. Fortunately, both of these are available in surplus from Salon Enclave. Whether beauties-to-be are seeking a daring bob cut ($35–$70) or color treatment to match their bobcat ($75–$90), an appointment at Enclave opens the door to transformative techniques. For special occasions, brides and dancing queens can plan a head bouquet ahead of time with Salon Enclave's signature hairstyling sessions ($60–$100). Check out the salon's list of services here. Scalp massages are free with non-chemical services.
