Aesthetician Julie Maciel holds a strong track record in turning first-time guests into regulars. Working out of Gemini Beauty Lounge & Boutique, she tends to guests with personalized beauty-enhancing services such as facials and massages—each customized using a detailed skin assessment. She considers such epidermal factors as moisture levels, sun damage, and how many days until the guest’s next molt to craft a custom product regimen. Julie also happily makes product recommendations for clients’ at-home care.
Orchid Beauty & Spa is located on a deserted island?or so it would seem. Panoramic wall prints display turquoise water and pristine beaches as white as granulated sugar. Clients are led past mani-pedi stations and Romanesque white columns to private rooms. There, highly trained aestheticians administer soothing facials and full-body waxes and ease tension with hot-stone and deep-tissue bodywork. The spa also offers an array of Lamprobe and microdermabrasion treatments to stave off acne and pesky spider veins.
Dr. Helen He's first encounter with Chinese medicine involved watching her grandmother and father perform it in China.

The expert massage therapist will use a combination of different massage techniques and plant-based essential oils to promote harmony among your warring senses, encouraging a singular, serene experience.

The staff at Beatrice Salon uses the latest in beauty technology, brightening teeth with a laser whitening system, smoothing faces with microdermabrasion, and applying convenient permanent makeup to fa?ades. During facials, aestheticians soothe skin with relaxing aromatherapy, back facial treatments, and microdermabrasions that target fine lines, wrinkles, and creases left after folding oneself into an overhead luggage compartment. Nail technicians pamper hands with manicures and feet with pedicures as clients kick back in cushy chairs. Permanent-makeup services include eyeliner, lip liner, full lip coloring, and full brow coloring, and eyelash extensions lengthen lashes semipermanently. Technicians can also complete a new look by wielding the laser-powered BleachBright teeth-whitening system to brighten chompers four to eight shades in 15?20 minutes.
