Day Spa Confidential's friendly staffers turn back Mother Nature's clocks by pairing holistic spa treatments with techniques cultivated in Europe and the Far East to relax patients and assuage the signs of aging. The spa's skilled aestheticians rejuvenate faces with customized facials, incorporating eastern European extraction techniques and Nutraceutical and Cosmeceutical brand skincare products to clear and pamper the skin. Patients who want to address deeper skin concerns can opt for services such as LED light therapy and micro current lifting, which deliver potent skin-transforming waves and love notes personally signed by aestheticians deep below the epidermis. Beauty mavens looking to ditch unwanted fuzz can indulge in full-body waxing and semipermanent eyelash extensions affix faux tendrils to darken and thicken lash lines.
Beauty and relaxation come together at Tara Bella Day Spa, where aestheticians treat their clients to spa services including facials, hair removal, and massage. Specific skill sets aid staff members such as Donna DePew, who shows off her electrolysis expertise as an instructor for The American Institute of Education. Committed to creating personalized services, the beauty experts take a full hour during Brazilian waxes and can customize facial treatments based on each client's manufacturer specifications. They also work to maintain a sanitary environment with practices that eschew unhygienic habits such as double dipping during waxes.
Even during the decade she spent as a stay-at-home mother, Nicole Bennett, the owner and aesthetician at Flawless Face & Body, always followed her own personal skincare regimen and even worked a few side jobs in cosmetics. But it wasn't until she decided to take a chance and go back to school that she realized that her passion was deeper than she thought, and that passion aligned with her quest for a new career. Her interest in skincare skyrocketed as she delved into the nitty-gritty science behind it, and she sped her way through Palomar Institute of Cosmetology.
After becoming a licensed aesthetician, Nicole opened her own skincare center, a move which gives her more time with her clients than a gig in a traditional spa. She also earned certification as an acne specialist, with the extra training inspiring her to dedicate a large portion of her service menu to result-oriented acne solutions. This dedication now takes the form of a full-fledged acne program, which blends biweekly clinic appointments with an at-home skincare regimen to take faces from spotty to spotless over the course of 12-16 weeks. With the help of Image Skincare and Rhonda Allison products, she also counters other blemishes and imperfections with facials, peels, and waxing, leaving skin as clean and smooth as a censored version of The Catcher in the Rye read by Barry White.
The talented staff at Shear Indulgence Salon & Day Spa simultaneously fashions stylish outer appearances and fosters relaxed inner beings. A holistic client experience underlines the goals of every treatment in the loft-style salon, whether licensed stylists are whipping up glamorous hairdos with products from brands such as Kemon and Moroccanoil or massage therapists are relieving stiffness, soreness, and stress with focused bodywork. Aestheticians and skin technicians play their part as well, countering blemishes with a roster of nutrient-rich facials and lavishing bodies with scrubs, warm towels, and freedom from unwanted hairs and their statically attached balloon friends.
Rather than staffing a huge team of unfamiliar faces, Tiger Lily Day Spa & Boutique owner Vanessa Huff strives to cultivate an intimate environment by working directly with each client. She focuses on using clients' time wisely as she flaunts her specialty services, which include lash tinting and perming, chemical peels, PCA Skin facials, and SunFX spray tanning. Vanessa's eight years of experience with Brazilian waxing ensures that unwanted hairs are evicted artfully after she anoints skin with Satin Smooth cream wax or Cirepil hard wax. To amp up the luxury, Vanessa works closely with Alana Rose, a nationally licensed and locally certified massage therapist who specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Tiger Lily also hosts parties to let groups of five or more spend an evening purifying pores with peels and facials or comforting friends recently dumped by the sun with UV-free spray tans.
Every day, the staff at Paul Jordan Salon calls forth new artworks in the form of freshly shorn hair, supple skin, and polished nails. Though their specialties vary, they share an understanding that no two bodies are quite the same. That’s why they begin each Japanese thermal straightening treatment, body-sugaring session, and chemical peel with a personalized consultation. Their work doesn’t stop after the final toe has been polished or the final strand of hair has fallen to the ground. Paul Jordan’s team regularly attends seminars and goes undercover as supermodels to stay abreast of the latest beauty trends.
