Hollywood Body Spa & Laser’s skin-satisfying services refresh worn or stressed epidermises, unleashing clean, healthy-looking faces. The 60-minute D’Vine facial fuses the antioxidants of wine, such as grapes and cherry bark, with an age-diminishing facial to create a skin treatment that cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates chrono-drained tissue. To complete the facial refurbishing, a 30-minute Dermafile microdermabrasion treatment resurfaces facial valleys with a file of finely crushed genuine diamonds, removing dead skin cells with hints at elopement and eternal bliss. A trained aesthetician conducts the skin-polishing session, providing a custom, comforting experience that will leave faces glowing like face-shaped light bulbs.
Though the shop’s sign features a pastel, cloud-covered design, A Heavenly Touch Day Spa’s interior is covered in rich fabrics and regal colors. A massage bed upholstered in chocolate brown welcomes those in search of therapeutic massage, and, over a checkerboard carpet of fall-colored squares, black leather chairs are the beauty thrones where pedicure clients sit. The spa’s three-woman staff also performs manicures, waxing, and skincare services, including chemical peels.
At Lighten Up Salon & Spa, a black-and-white checkered ceiling looks down on hardwood floors as aestheticians bustle away at pampering, styling, and bronzing their guests. As clients relax in cherry-red swiveling chairs, stylists shape brows, root out unwanted hair with wax treatments, and transform coifs with perms, haircuts, highlights and lowlights, and color treatments. Forsaking its name, Lighten Up turns down customers’ white balance with tailored airbrush-tanning treatments that imbue skin with a beach-ready bronze without clients having to bake under the sun or marinate in a bathtub filled with third-place trophies.
The weight-loss experts at Venus Med Spa dedicate themselves to supplementing body-slimming efforts with personal coaching and noninvasive treatments. Staff members operate under the no-frills philosophy that dieters and exercisers can maintain their weight with a healthy lifestyle and sensible eating. But they also recognize that sticking to a healthy lifestyle can be harder than landing a helicopter on a doghouse roof, so the team works one-on-one with clients to educate them on such weight-loss methods as HCG diets, laser-assisted liposuction procedures, and body sculpting with Venus Freeze radio-frequency treatments. To supplement new shapes, Venus Med Spa smoothes wrinkles and plumps up skin with Botox and Juvéderm injections.
At Hair 1 and Spa 2, Charity (DeSear) Zeigler draws upon two decades of experience in the beauty industry, transforming men's and women's looks with an array of relaxing treatments. In the salon area, skilled hands craft haircuts, highlights, lowlights, and corrective colors. Fingers and toes relax during spa mani-pedis featuring heat therapy and soothing scrubs. Staff banishes body fuzz with traditional waxing services, as well as laser hair-removal and electrolysis treatments that can prepare legs for the beach or enhance an arm wrestler's aerodynamic advantage.
As its name implies, My Massage Inc. focuses on customizing massages to treat the individual, with a staff of therapists well trained in a range of modalities. Therapists may utilize the broad, relaxing strokes of Swedish massage to relax musculature, or deep-tissue and trigger-point methods to target kinked up muscles. Sports massages and orthopedic therapy also help therapists lessen client discomfort—specifically injuries sustained while playing sports or chasing away kids who are treating decorative lawn flamingos like an ad-hoc hurdling course. Alternatively, during cupping-therapy sessions, therapists utilize gentle suction to facilitate lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
