After a 10-year stint in the corporate world, Teresa Buenaflor landed an internship at the Skin Institute & Plastic Surgery Center, a facility that quickly piqued her interest in aesthetic excellence. Twenty years later, the licensed master aesthetician now holds an International Certification of Esthetics from Europe, which she calls upon while leading the licensed master aestheticians and corrective skincare specialists at Bellassima Skin Institute. The team rejuvenates all skin types with facials, peels, reflexology, and acupressure services, and even hosts a collection of private-label skincare products and exclusive custom-blend makeup formulas that are so powerful they could make a grown man look like a younger grown man.
Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests. Each team member applies synthetic extensions one by one, making lashes longer without fitting them for tiny platform shoes. The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first—Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.
Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio ensures its clients feel beautiful from head to toe. Starting at the top, facials and microdermabrasion treatments clear dirt and debris from the pores to keep skin looking clean and youthful. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair from limbs and torsos and spray tanning leaves skin with an even glow. Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio also caters to groups with bridal services and pamper parties, during which friends bond over facials and debate which Supreme Court justice would win a nine-way wrestling match.
The European facial at AHN Skin & Beauty is a microcosm of the spa's dedication to relaxation and beautification. In addition to rejuvenating complexions, it includes shoulder, neck, and scalp massages and an aromatherapy treatment with a fragrant hot towel fluffed in a flower-filled dryer. If you just want beauty services, you can schedule airbrush-tanning, eyelash-extension, and hair-and-makeup sessions. For pure relaxation, on the other hand, the spa's massage therapists give Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Dr. Chantal Russell stays true to Pure Spa & Chiropractic’s name by taking a natural approach to health and wellness. With her own two hands, Dr. Russell performs chiropractic adjustments, myofascial-release sessions, and shadow-puppet shows to demonstrate ergonomically sound keyboarding techniques. Her dedication to personalized care for her patients transcends Pure’s chiropractic branch, influencing the trained aestheticians that helm the facility's waxing, facial, and massage services.
A sparkling chandelier, mirrors in gilded frames, a marbled Corinthian pillar. Ultra Lux Salon and Day Spa would live up to its name by décor alone. But once patrons slide into chairs, a team of hairstylists extends pampering still further by snipping off split ends, coloring locks, and adding length with extensions. Spa services such as massages, manicures, and waxing soothe bodies as well as strands.
