Each appointment at Skin Renewal Center matters, but the first one really lets clients know that the staff cares about their skin and wants to educate them. During the initial visit, an aesthetician assesses the client’s skin, both with their expert eyes and a skin scope. The skincare specialist then works with the client to devise a skincare plan they can follow at home.
They treat everything from acne to dry skin to signs of aging with high-quality products by Pevonia Botanica and Epicuren Discovery. Even the center’s massages focus on skincare—the therapists use varying strokes to increase blood flow and enhance a complexion’s glow or to relax muscles that cause wrinkles.
Spa Central's facial-friendly staff pampers guests with luxury spa services that showcase Decleor aromatherapy skincare products. Choose the 30-minute express signature facial to revive surfaces by exfoliating dead skin cells and those pretending to be asleep. An ensuing mask purifies and hydrates cavernous face canals with a refreshing intensity that may prompt strangers to pinch your cheek as if it were a lemon wedge.
When we think of massages, we usually imagine a set of hands kneading the back of the shoulders and neck. Jackie VonDorsten—the massage therapist at Indian Lotus Massage—does too, but she also expands on the neck-and-shoulder routine in favor of full-body treatments that target tension from head to toe. She understands everybody stores stress in different places, which is why she tailors each of her sessions, intuitively tracking down hidden knots with deep-tissue pressure, Swedish-style kneads, or hot-stones.
But massage is just one of the ways Jackie make clients feel good. As a cosmetologist, she deep-cleans pores and exfoliates skin with facial treatments and European mud wraps. A naturally fast runner, she can also travel to her clients' homes and offices for on-location sessions.
Aesthetician Stella Swisher harnesses her individual experiences to pamper clients at Rejuvenations Skin Studio with treatments such as waxing, facial treatments, and permanent makeup. She strives to infuse each of her services with a natural approach, whether she's tinting lashes with Austrian vegetable dye or slathering mugs with antioxidants during anti-aging facials.
Massage therapist Evelyn is a muscle whisperer. She calms tense muscles using nothing more than her two trained hands. Depending on her clients’ ailments, Evelyn glides her hands along the back, pushes her thumbs into pressure points, deeply kneads dermal canvases, or gently rocks the body to sleep while dispensing a lullaby. Her sessions are customized for each individual, covering their scalp, neck, shoulder, and upper back in 15 minutes to traversing the entire body in a 90-minute period.
Masters-level medical-massage therapist Bambi Reile and her team draw on more than 15 years of experience to help those who visit Pain Stop feel their best. Their techniques include myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, deep-tissue kneading, and gentle Swedish strokes. Bambi is also certified as a corrective-exercise specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and can improve the health of elderly, injured, or obese patients with customized programs.
