Aesthetician and PCA Skin certified professional Heather Fowler at Renew Skin Therapy begins every session—whether a rejuvenating facial or a chemical peel—with a skin analysis. From there, she settles on the proper cleansers to tackle each client’s specific skin woes, whether the hope is to mask the signs of aging, quench dry spots, or reverse the hexes that cursed clients with chameleon skin. Each client is sent home with a tailored home regimen to optimize and prolong their facial treatment. Also offering waxing services to their repertoire, many of the spa’s chosen effective PCA Skin and Skin Fitness Therapy products are infused with natural scents and ingredients such as pumpkin, aloe vera, cranberry, and agave margarita, many of which are organic and environmentally friendly.
The I-ACT certified technicians at Alternative Wellness Day Spa steer clients toward stronger health with holistic treatments including infrared body wraps, massages, and colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Shawna, the colon hydrotherapist, entered the field over a decade ago after forays with the treatment produced a significant uptick in her own health. She now works alongside a massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of tension-battling experience to improve the health and well-being of their clients.
Wine-tinted curtains separate the comfortable lounge area from the private colon-hydrotherapy treatment rooms, where guests recline in specialized seats designed to ensure comfort and restore healthy gastrointestinal function.
Simply owning a spa was not enough for Jolie Day Spa & Joli Visage founders Kelly Ozmon and Suzanne Bitz. Shortly after opening their first spa, armed with aesthetician's licenses and advanced certifications, the duo delved into research and chemistry, concocting their own line of nationally recognized clinical skincare products that incorporate botanicals from the coast of Hawaii, the south of France, and the invisible lakes of Mars.
Inside Jolie Day Spa, the owners' passions for high-quality products and attentive treatments intersect, as a staff of highly experienced aestheticians and cosmetologists pair Joli Visage products with facials and peels to help clients overcome signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and a tattoo of an American flag with only 48 stars on it. A retinue of bodycare services from licensed massage therapists and hair treatments round out the all-encompassing menu of beautifying treatments. The spa also has a newly-launched private, French manicure studio, which incorporates French botanicals in their relaxing treatments.
Inspired by the glamor of Hollywood, owner of Best At Beauty Enhancement (B.A.B.E.) KC Chavez strives to make each customer feel like a celebrity during customized skincare, waxing, and nail services. She combats blemishes, signs of aging, and paparazzi red eye with nine types of facials, nourishing skin with the nontoxic, botanical extracts and pure essential oils found in the paraben- and fragrance-free Bioelements line. Chavez uses formaldehyde-free CND Shellac polish to keep nails from chipping or oxidizing for up to two weeks.
Kristi Harris, a licensed aesthetician and permanent cosmetic technician, developed a passion for combating skin issues after an aesthetician alleviated Kristi’s own skin problems as a teenager. Inside Advanced Skin Care and Permanent Cosmetics, she tends to faces using Image Skincare products and buffs away retired skin cells with a microdermabrasion wand or extra-fine sandpaper. She also applies permanent brows, eyeliner, and lips for a more refreshed visage 24 hours a day.
