It used to be an historic Dixon firehouse filled with burly men ready to extinguish raging fires. Today, it's an oasis of refinement thanks to Le Petite Salon and a neighboring tea room where pinkies float daintily above porcelain cups without fear of uninvited swearing. Inside the salon?which is dotted with vintage-inspired decor?distinguished wooden styling stations with large, ornate mirrors recall the sophistication of an old English estate. Amid these dignified furnishings, seasoned stylists prune and arrange tresses into flattering shapes and enhance facial features with makeup. While they get brides, prom dates, and birthday girls ready for their big events, a certified massage therapist kneads tense sinews in a private treatment room and a coffee bar keeps waiting guests caffeinated.
Beachy murals, wicker furniture, and colorful plants evoke a tropical feel inside Paradise Tan & Spa. The fleet of tanning booths – in standard and super/platinum wattage strengths – blankets patrons in a tropical golden hue. The staff also whitens customers’ teeth and waxes bodies free of unwanted hair.
The therapists at Natural Healing Massage and Wellness Center use targeted bodywork techniques to counteract ailments, such as stress and chronic pain. With smooth or intense strokes?whichever best suit the client at hand?these therapists gradually improve circulation and soothe tired muscles. Their massages may be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite, as they push toxins out of tissues and improve lymphatic drainage.
Munni Sah melts away stress by gliding hot stones across backs, dipping hands and feet into a paraffin treatment, and slathering bodies with an essential oil mud wrap. She also aims to alleviate sinus and headache problems during a special facial treatment, and bestows scalp and hair treatments upon heads for strands as silky smooth as Al Green?s voicemail greeting.
Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services. Qualified medical staff employ the Palomar StarLux 500 laser?which is outfitted with broadband light energy, a vacuum, and a cooling system?to optimize laser hair-removal treatments and acne or anti-aging facials. Qualified medical staff administer all laser therapies and inject dermal fillers such as Botox, reassuring patients with expert medical advice about their results, aftercare, and probability of attaining immortality. The space's capacious waiting room is painted an energizing shade of lime green, and scattered sofas and oriental rugs exude a welcoming, homey feel.
Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays?the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
