For 20 years, Thurston House's aestheticians, massage therapists, hair stylists, and nail technicians have provided relaxing and beautifying services in a serene, well-appointed house and spa. The spa wields an FDA-approved intense-pulse light (IPL) that gently zaps the follicles of underarms and carpeted upper chests without disrupting the surrounding skin or nearby magic shows. The treatment can also ease the appearance of tattoos, scars, and stretch marks. An on-staff physician helps patients achieve cosmetic goals with facial fillers, including Botox, and a variety of facials and peels further assist faces in their quest to recapture youth. Nail technicians use paraffin, shellac, and hot stones to keep clients hands smooth and nails trim during manicures and pedicures. The staff takes extra care to ensure client comfort amid the facility’s attractive treatment rooms, which exude homey tranquility with wood floors, earth tones, and elegant chandeliers.
