Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Credentialed massage therapists and aestheticians at Abella Salon and Spa imbue massage, facial, and tanning services with aromatherapy and botanical skincare products. Lavender-scented body scrubs and hydrating algae body masks leave skin as soft and supple as a newborn pillow, and custom chemical peels deeply exfoliate epidermises. In addition, advanced light-based techniques may be applied to whiten teeth and manage unwanted hair without organizing razors into unwieldy bureaucracies. Laser technicians at Abella Salon and Spa also help fight the again process with services such as laser hair removal, photofacials, and Botox and other fillers.
