Vie the Spa is an exclusive women’s spa that caters to female well-being with body-swaddling detoxifying wraps. Developed by biochemists from UCLA Medical Center, the herbal formulation of a M’lis Detox Contour wrap encourages circulatory lymphatic flow, which cleanses tissues without laundry detergent guesswork. Clients relax in a warm cocoon that keeps the skin and body hydrated as cellulite dissipates and up to 14 inches melt away from forms like butter on a Saharan sidewalk.
