As their spa’s name implies, the licensed technicians at Forever Young Bodyworks tap into the fountain of youth with detoxifying body wraps and nourishing facials that soften, hydrate, and set skin aglow. They supplement these skincare treatments with beautifying spray tans, eyelash tinting, and all-over waxing services. Permanent-makeup applications cut time out of the morning routine; similarly, ink-removal sessions save time that would otherwise be wasted explaining tattoos of string-theory equations to nosy strangers on the bus.
Oh Heavenly Tan meticulously bronzes color-hungry skin with a selection of airbrush and UV tanning options. The Level I airbrush tan coats the client's island-aspiring epidermis with a hydrating, color-enhancing spray to create an equator-dwelling appearance without spending hours in the sun or buying a pirate ship. To complement the airborne body glow, a Level I stand-up tan saturates skin with dermis-darkening UV rays. The nine-minute session is conducted in one of Oh Heavenly's spacious stand-up tanning beds, featuring a digital timer, advanced body-cooling system, and two stereo speakers for piping in radio hits or recordings of Sam Elliott reading a Judy Blume book.
Licensed skin therapist and facialist Carleen's business began with wedding makeup applications, but it quickly expanded to provide a well-rounded approach to glowing skin. Now, at Imagine by Carleen, she not only applies makeup, but also performs expert facials and skincare treatments. Her microcurrent therapy, anti-aging face-lifts, and acne facials allow her custom-blended and custom-designed makeup applications to shine even brighter.
The beauty experts at Brow Art specialize in flattering facial features with threading services and eyelash extensions. Using a thin cotton filament, they groom and shape eyebrows into artful arches or tidy drawbridges. This thread can also whisk stray hairs away from upper lips, cheeks, and chins. Synthetic, silk, and mink lash extensions adhere directly to natural lashes for a dramatic look that doesn't need extra mascara or makeup.
Island Life Spa's staff pampers guests under the expert guidance of spa director and massage therapist Tina Marie Mayr, who has 20 years of experience owning and operating spas. Guests can relax with hot-stone massages, revitalize their complexion with aromatherapeutic skincare treatments in private rooms, or stop in on Wednesdays for acupuncture sessions.
The deft hands of Debra Florio, the owner of Contour Body Works and a licensed massage therapist in her own right, alternate between firm pressures and gentle strokes as they sweep over backs in relaxing massage sessions. Debra and her team of therapists rely on a mix of Eastern and Western techniques—from the gentle, full-body strokes of Swedish massage to the shiatsu acupressure and sliding bamboo shoots of bamboossage—to drive away tension accumulated while hanging from cliffs or betting whether strangers are left-handed.
Contour Body Works’ relaxing spa services don’t end with massage. The center’s licensed facial specialists cleanse pores of dirt and oil during European facials that include steaming, extractions, and a mask tailored to each client’s skin type. Dead Sea salt exfoliates skin during salt-glow sessions, and alternative treatments such as mud wraps and infrared-sauna sessions penetrate the skin’s superficial layers to expel toxins and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Similarly innovative treatments include magnetic therapy, which draws on the science of polarity to balance the body’s vibrations and realign the needles on wonky internal compasses.
