The Mango Spa House's crack team of massage therapists and facial specialists lavishes the mind and body with a wide array of services such as waxing, reflexology massages, and facials. From the forehead to the feet, waxologists eliminate unwanted tufts, clearing away fuzz from the legs and bikini area for women and the chest and man-tini area for men. Aestheticians harness microcurrent technology for body-sculpting and facial treatments, whereas massage therapists mend musculatures with hand-applied Swedish, trigger-point, or reflexology kneadings that soothe away stress left over from a job interview's bomb-defusing section. The Mango Spa House also partners with local practitioners who come in to perform everything from acupuncture to detox massages.
Within Sakura Touch's quaint, cozy studio, massage therapists and aestheticians combine technical expertise with spa pampering. Patrons can relax during Swedish massages with warm neck wraps, deep-tissue kneading sessions, or aromatherapy massages with heated oil that drips directly onto the skin. All-natural salt scrubs slough away dead skin cells, leaving flesh soft and radiant. Patrons also can opt for reiki energy work or lymphatic drainage sessions, which can be conducted in studio or offsite in clients' homes.
When he's not writing articles in celebrated medical journals, appearing on radio and television, or delivering lectures across the globe, Dr. Ayman El-Attar treats faces and bodies with his natural-looking cosmetic surgeries. At Derma Laser Centers, which he founded in 2002, Dr. El-Attar performs numerous nonsurgical procedures that rid skin of acne, remove tattoos, and eliminate unwanted hair and veins. Alternatively, his surgical procedures transplant hair, transfer fat to different body regions, and reduce breasts without scarring.
In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Derma Laser Centers' personnel pamper guests with facials that incorporate elements such as an antioxidant vitamin C firming mask, which exfoliates skin more effectively than daily orange-juice baths. He also smoothes skin with microdermabrasion and reinvigorates clients with body treatments that include lavender and an antioxidant grape-seed scrub.
All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda Lifestyle Salon Spas enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff—coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products—lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.

As delicious as they are effective, their chocolate or milk and honey body scrubs help reduce the appearance of cellulite while softening skin. In addition to keeping skin healthy, technicians also help bods look their sharpest with airbrush makeup, eyelash extensions, and tanning services.
