The technicians at iLash Studio beautify clients with Xtreme Lashes faux mink extensions, which they attach one by one to natural lashes. After a one- to two-hour appointment, clients walk out with fuller, more glamorous lashes. The semipermanent lashes last approximately two to three weeks and stay attached even while swimming or showering.
Chic, bohemian touches give The Massage Suite at Boho Vanite an air of both comfort and elegance. Tiny votive candles set the mood, while flowers and bronze artwork add color and texture. Guests relax on a table as therapists administer customized massages to ease away tension, discomfort, and a long-held fear of strangers' fingers.
The muted glow from a stained-glass lamp shines in a private treatment room at Boho Vanité, where dark-blue walls and bronze wall medallions complete a bohemian look. In fact, the spa's mission is to provide clients with treatments in the bohemian way. Its eclectic service includes treatments that improve the skin or enhance clients' natural beauty. For example, its skin-rejuvenation treatment tackles wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks, and sagging skin in a single session.
Dr. Melinda Silva specializes in balance. She earned a Compassionate Physician Award from her patients for balancing emotional connection and clinical savvy, but she can also balance more concrete entities: hormones. Her bioidentical-hormone therapies alleviate the imbalances that can cause issues from mood swings to obesity. To complement them, Dr. Silva prescribes lifestyle changes such as diet alterations, new fitness regimens, and healthier sleep routines. Her clinic handles aesthetic concerns just as adeptly as medical ones, with noninvasive physique-contouring Exilis treatments, wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, and chemical peels.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
At Spirit Lift, plastic and reconstructive surgeons perform surgical and nonsurgical body-contouring services in a med spa that resembles a meditation retreat. A garden of bamboo plants sprouts up under the reed ceilings of the lobby, surrounding patrons waiting to walk into warmly decorated treatment rooms. Using the latest technology and the most effective wizard staffs, the doctors perform services such as breast augmentation, face-lifts, laser resurfacing, and liposuction.
