The expert aestheticians at Exquisite Skincare and Waxing mollycoddle guests from the neck up with facials custom-fit to their skin types and strengthened with Dermalogica tonics and salves. The Dermalogica facial commences with a mapping that analyzes the face’s topography and plots the most direct bus route from the chin to the forehead. A skinsmith then double cleanses and exfoliates the visage, ridding it of stubborn makeup, dirt, and past-their-prime skin cells. Warm steam opens up pores before a gentle extraction, if necessary, whisks away blemish-causing bacteria from the face. The façade refurbishing continues with a customized mask and application of serums, toner, eye cream, and a hydrating moisturizer. A light facial massage concludes the pampering, transporting minds to places of relaxation—like a sandy beach or the inside of Paul Bunyan’s pillow. Exquisite Skincare ensconces visitors in a serene setting decked with lavender paint, glowing chandeliers, and fresh flowers.
Sylk Spa & Salon's stylists, aestheticians, and therapists literally pamper guests from head to toenail with all-natural and environmentally friendly products, including Surface haircare, Skin Fitness Therapy, and SpaRitual polishes.

Dark cabinets, copper-hued walls, and a flickering fireplace create an atmosphere as peaceful as a dove-producing magician.

Seitzinger employs 18 years of experience to loosen tight muscles and soothe soreness in the body via a variety of massage modalities.
