On top of the six types of massage they dole out daily, the staffers administer reiki, reflexology, and ionic-footbath sessions.

Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skin-care expertise, leads an experienced staff of skinologists into the war for attention-grabbing radiance. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, paintball indentations, irregular pigmentation, clingy barnacles, fine lines, superglued Halloween masks, and rosacea. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin that mesmerizes passersby. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.

With its boldly patterned walls and ornately framed mirrors perched on easels, Amenity's Hair Studio resembles a light-filled artist’s loft. But even in the waiting room, an overstuffed leather couch and easy chair betray owner Pamela Lynne Regeena’s commitment to her customers’ comfort. Regeena, who has styled hair professionally for more than 25 years, opened Amenity's Hair Studio eight years ago after moving to Minneapolis from Canada, where she taught other stylists her signature coloring techniques and created looks for professional hair shows.

In addition to haircuts, color, styling, and perms, Amenity's Hair Studio offers skin, facial, and nail services.
