Esthetician Karlene Wishloff helps her patrons feel even younger with exfoliating facials, gentle microdermabrasions, waxing, and anti-aging light therapy. Rather than using harmful substances such as petroleum products, mineral oils, and well-aged Windex, the seasoned skin expert removes dead skin cells and reduces hyperpigmentation with plant-based products, fruit extracts, and non-invasive applications of concentrated light.
At Divine Wellness, wellness doesn't mean giving up chocolate--instead, it means applying it to your face. During their Chocolate Layered Facial, chocolate-infused products brighten skin, combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and tattoos of rotary telephones. The center's signature facial, meanwhile, deploys products tailored to the client's skin, and the microdermabrasion treatment sloughs away dead skin with sterilized crystals. Massages further relax physiques, in styles ranging from classic Swedish kneads to holsitic reiki massages, which aid the flow of universal life force energy through the body.
At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
In her private chamber within Heidi's, Nicole Cereghino is cataloging all of the ingredients found in beauty products that clog pores. The list is long and full of surprises such as algae extract, cocoa butter, and spackle, but Cereghino has devoted her business, Pure Radiance Revealed, to restoring skin's healthy glow without them. Instead, she relies on fruit enzymes and natural acids to gently buff away dead and damaged tissue during her six specialty facials. Particle-free diamond microdermabrasion furthers this goal with minimal irritation to the skin, and soft, LED light and microcurrent technology promote cellular renewal below the surface for a firmer, more youthful complexion. To help showcase the radiant complexions that result from her treatments, she also removes unwanted hair with the targeted rays of an Elos laser instead of staring at the hair long enough to make follicles get uncomfortable and leave.
Aesthetician and former L.A. makeup artist Erin Bledy pampers and rejuvenates skull sheaths with safe and effective Botanical Science Technologies products. During the 75-minute customized microdermabrasion anti-aging facial, Erin calms and coddles clients with a doting massage before gently sloughing away dead skin cells. Each treatment helps augment tone and texture, purging pores of conditions such as acne, stretch marks, rosacea, and random invisibility.
The medical aestheticians at Glam Lash Boutique value their clients' natural beauty, so it should come as no surprise that they use natural spa treatments whenever possible. Their acid peels, for example, incorporate ingredients such as pomegranate and deep-sea herbs to more effectively remove impurities and unflattering clown paint. Even their hair-removal treatments are natural; clients can choose between wax or a natural sugar paste, both of which whisk away unwanted stubble and prepare skin for an organic spray tan. Of course, one of the spa's most popular services is hinted at in the name. Certified lash artists carefully apply silk and mink extensions to add length to natural eyelashes.
