A makeover doesn't have to involve a drastic haircut, a new wardrobe, or a new government-supplied identity. That's why BG Makeovers Advanced Skin Care & Spa co. focuses on simple skin solutions. Inside the beauty hotspot, aestheticians treat a wide range of skin issues with their services. Blackheads and dull skin are no match for the manual exfoliation, extractions, and brightening mask included in the BG luxurious signature spa facial. Age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are visibly reduced thanks to the micro needling pen, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Acne and skin redness decrease with the Osmosis facial infusion, a gentle peel that employs the high-quality Osmosis skin care line.
Not one harsh chemical or animal byproduct is found inside Venus Avani Eco Salon & Organic Beauty Bar’s products. Each hair, skin, and nail line is eco-friendly, organic, vegan, free of parabens, SLS, and sulphates, and never tested on animals or robots. To keep in line with their environmentally friendly standards, the salon's staff also recycles all paper, plastics, and swept hair that would normally be tossed; short hair is donated to help with oil-spill clean-ups. Long hair that's cut is donated to a charity of the clients’ choosing.
Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
Dr. Lisa Hatzos, owner of Renew MediSpa, has been enhancing appearances with nonsurgical aesthetic treatments since 2005. These knife-less procedures include beauty injections that tame wrinkled muscles or restore fullness to deflated features, as well as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Dr. Hatzos and her team use lasers to zap unwanted body hair, tighten lax skin, and swat menacingly at spider veins. Velashape treatments, meanwhile, smooth cellulite and contour the body. Some of the more traditional spa offerings available at this modern facility include cleansing facials and mani-pedis.
Essential Massage's licensed therapists treat clients with a variety of massage treatments to promote wellness and better health. They soothe knotted muscles with high-pressure and hot-stone massages, and they marry techniques from two modalities to create optimum relaxation during the combination massage. Their range-of-motion treatments release joint restriction and increase flexibility, and their Revitalize Five treatment works to exfoliate the back while invigorating hands and feet.
Enhancing Mother Nature's spiritual flow, Green Tea Yoga energizes chakras and enlivens aspiring yogis with a rotating schedule of seasonal 60-, 75-, or 90-minute classes. Green Tea Yoga's experienced instructors guide twisters and toners through a series of poses to help to strengthen postures and limber up limbs. EarthSky yoga, a moderate-intensity class, brims with Vinyasa flow techniques such as bending, stretching, and controlled breathing. Students in search of a more intense course can slide into a Forrest yoga session, and moms-to-be can partake in a prenatal course or the Momaste class, designed to help to relieve stress and shake off lingering fears of toddlers taking over the world. Occasional children’s classes are also offered throughout the year.
