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.
Nastran Organic Skincare Center's mission is to provide healthy and natural treatments to clients for their daily skin care routines. That's why all of their skin care treatments are free of side effects and their line of products are handcrafted, vegan, organic, and free of animal testing. Their threading service removes hairs at the root, giving the results of waxing but with more precision and potentially with fewer complications. The boutique's vitamin-infused facials help keep skin radiant, and bridal services prep brides to look their best and help them warmup their bouquet-hurling arm.
Eshaan Laser & Skin Care Medical Spa‘s physician-supervised staff straddles the line between science and relaxation. The aestheticians and medical professionals harness FDA-approved LightSheer and Aurora lasers to erase unwanted hairs, tattoos, and spider veins. But their science-based treatments don’t just target superficial imperfections: take VelaShape cellulite therapy, which combines mechanical massage with light and radio energies to reduce fatty deposits on the hips, thighs, and dorsal fin.
Considering their extensive medical backgrounds, it’s surprising the staff hasn’t lost sight of the nuances of relaxation. They swath their clients in warm robes, fill the spa’s air with tranquil music and soothing aromas, and offer complimentary beverages.
