The artful aestheticians at skoah treat visages to complexion-beautifying skincare "workouts" intended to help assess the skin’s condition and equip face owners with an at-home maintenance regime. Designed to ready skin for autumnal elements, the 45-minute Fall in Love (with your skin) facial kicks off with a deep-cleansing treatment to squeaky cleanify skin and follows up with a double exfoliation that peels away evidence of extended sun kissing to reveal radiant epidermal planes. Once emotion expressers have been buffed, trod-upon toes get scrubbed into gleefully squealing piggies while a foot massage eases aches and a custom moisturizer hydrates sapped soles.

Rejuve!'s website hosts a live counter that tallies how much weight their clients have lost—most recently, it reported a total of 563,227 pounds. The spa's four-step detoxification treatment, designed to rid bodies of excess fat and toxins, was partly responsible for this success. The treatment begins as a technician records each person's measurements, weight, body-fat percentage, and serial number. Then, a registered massage therapist performs a 20-minute lymphatic-drainage massage to spur the body's natural filtration process. A subsequent 45-minute infrared body wrap warms to 55 degrees celsius to ignite a detoxifying sweat. Finally, the technician retakes measurements to document any inch or body-fat reduction.
rejuve! also offers infrared yoga classes held inside heated studios that augment the detoxification process. Class structures range from powerful Baptiste Free Style to slower-paced Gentle Yoga.
