Licensed aesthetician Alexis uses organic products to help her combat fine lines, acne, and dry patches during facials. Her facials include such aspects as custom masks, microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and light massages. Alexis is also fluent in Spanish, and the services listed on her website are written in English, Spanish, and Parseltongue for easy reading.
Anyone who works in art restoration can tell you that to do a good job, you have to consider the piece as a whole. The aestheticians and massage therapists at Skin and Body Solutions Day Spa have the same philosophy, which is why their menu extends past facials to include body wraps, massages, and even airbrush tanning. The express facial quickly cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a custom rubberizing mask finishes perfecting with toning and hydration. Clients in the mood for heavy-duty restoration can opt for the Whole ShaBang—an 85-minute facial that includes deep cleansing, a yogurt peel, an oxygen wrap, and a seaweed mask before finishing with fireworks, flying doves, and a standing ovation. Full-body waxing services remove unwanted hair obscuring facial features, and airbrush tanning imparts a golden-brown hue. Massage services disentangle muscle knots and include a paraffin foot wrap.
Casting off antiquated approaches to beauty, Advantage Health & Beauty embraces and implements modern technology to perform a range of aesthetic treatments. Techs harness the second-generation VelaShape system's bipolar radio frequencies and light energy to slim down silhouettes, and the multifunction Cutera CoolGlide laser achieves more external enhancement in its removal of unwanted hairs, varicose veins, and the body's leftover serial numbers. Beyond the light technology it offers, the beauty center also polishes the complexion with microdermabrasion and five types of peels, which are designed to shed dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of a new, youthful complexion.
A duo of aestheticians invites visitors to sidle up to their Downtown Beauty Bar, where they beautify bodies with an array of services. "My focus is healthy skin [and] how to improve your skin," the owner says. The pair pursues this end through facials, peels, and body wraps enhanced by massage and fueled by Dermalogica products. When not attending to the dermis, they turn their attention to body hair, waxing away unwanted tufts or accenting eyelashes with crystal-tipped extensions, an excellent way to confuse people into believing it’s snowing out.
