Soothing might not be the first word that springs to mind when describing waxing, but the word is pretty apt for the hair-removal sessions at Beauty First. Each treatment comes with a choice of eight scents, ranging from lavender-infused to banana-scented to throw a little aromatherapy into the bargain. Besides smelling delightful, the waxes also come in a slew of soft or creamy textures designed specifically for sensitive and hyper-sensitive skin. For even more discomfort-free sessions, Beauty First's aestheticians rely on Nufree, an antibacterial and antimicrobial formula that, unlike a hugging robot, never sticks to skin. To round out their trio of hair-removal procedures, the team relies on threading to pluck hairs from the roots on various body parts, including foreheads and necks. Besides ridding bodies of hair, Beauty First's aestheticians enrich eyebrows and eyelashes with tinting services and extensions from Refectocil.
At Rejuvederme, clients can make fresh starts with noninvasive cosmetic procedures and the guidance of a cosmetic physician and a nurse. The physician meets with clients for complimentary consultations to determine skincare needs and possible treatments. After consultations, the staff recommends services to tone, de-fuzz, or clarify skin with noninvasive lasers and Obagi Skincare products.
The clinic has the modern, spacious feel of a hotel lobby: A frosted glass wall divides the front desk from the waiting area, which then opens to private treatment rooms. Brightening the palette of white and mint, vases brim with birds of paradise, palm fronds, and spider mums.
At Prima Tan, clients darken skin inside stand-up and lie-down tanning booths and placate muscles inside an infrared sauna. Tanners can turn mind matter on auto pilot as 42 bulbs bronze bodies from head to toe inside a Solaris lie-down bed with Xtreme Reflection face tanners. Or, spend 12 minutes contemplating eternity while lounging inside an ergonomically designed StarPower bed, equipped with canopy, bench, facial, and shoulder tanning bulbs, as well as stereo speakers to stare at during sessions. Meanwhile, torsos stand upright inside a Sundome 548V booth, which evenly tans bodies during 10-minute no-contact sessions. A solid-wood sauna's infrared rays warm up dermises and cold, cold hearts during 30-minute sessions that can burn up to 400 calories. The sauna is designed to have sweat carry away toxins, and the heat can help bolster circulation, abate pain, and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Clients can also peruse Prima's selection of designer skin lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty.
Bronze Beach Tanning gives its customers a choice of five different tanning beds. In addition to the regular beds, there's a stand-up booth and turbo beds that colour you faster than a paint bath. Guests can further customize their looks with an array of tanning lotions, moisturizers, and bronzers.
