European-trained owner and biochemist Doina Mandrila and her team of aestheticians perform soothing spa services inspired by international beauty traditions. The Orient Essence Ceremony incorporates smooth Balinese pebbles and exotic oils into a relaxing massage, and the full-body hydration of the Velvet Skin Miracle mimics the thermal springs of the city of Spa in Belgium. The spa’s luxurious facials slather skin in natural ingredients, such as dandelion and moisturizing honey. Staff also specialize in gentlemen's facials and treatments formulated specifically for teenage skin issues, such as acne. Waxing services customize or banish body hair, while massage therapy leaves bodies in a state more relaxed than if Mr. Rogers governed Hawaii.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
The expert aestheticians at Reviva Spa and Beauty Boutique bring about epidermal bliss with a wide range of facials and spa services. The de-pore cleansing treatment targets particularly pesky spots, unclogging pores filled with face-dulling makeup, oil, and war paint. Alternatively, the radiance facial deploys a skin-sloughing peel, cleansing the face's top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, younger looking façade. Customers can pair the skin-renewing powers of the detox facial, which uses natural products to fight build up, with a 60-minute massage that leaves patrons as relaxed as a monk in a terry cloth robe.
The nail technicians at Hair It Is pamper fingers and toes with relaxing manicures and pedicures. Each 30-minute stand-alone mani commences with a hand soak, then pushes back cuticles once they've softened and let down their guard. Files whittle nails into shapely ovals, squares, or rhombuses, and a lotion-laden massage hydrates thirsty wrists, palms, and knuckles. A fresh coat of polish gives fingertips a stylish new hue to match favorite outfits, a new car, or pet betta fish. A luxurious 90-minute mani-pedi combo applies the same treatments above to both mitten and sock residents, in addition to applying a soothing warming mask before the lacquer application.
Ultimate Body Boutique prides itself on being a one-stop-shop salon, because it has everything its clients need to feel beautiful inside and out. Offering 10 tanning beds and booths, along with hair services, massages and waxing, this laid-back salon and spa features licensed, friendly stylists and aestheticians and a large menu of treatments. Come in for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage, or have partial highlights and a deep-conditioning treatment applied to soften hair before receiving a Brazilian wax.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
