Drawing on an arsenal of natural Aveda products and med-spa technology, the staff at Pure Skin and Body tackles tension and skin trouble with a variety of procedures. The salon specializes in a range of laser treatments, in which trained technicians wield focused beams of light to remove sun spots, dissolve multicolor tattoos, and prove to their parents that not only super villains use lasers for a living.
Aestheticians complement laser sessions with depilating waxing or threading treatments, organic or microdermabrasion facials, and permanent-makeup application. They can also help to augment health naturally with vitamin-supplement kits, which customize vitamin intake based on medical analysis to strengthen hair, skin, and nails like a doctor’s birthday wish. Carried on air rich with the scents of aromatherapy, slow sighs drift through the salon, emanating from patrons undergoing hot-stone massages.
Clogged pores and knotted muscles meet their match at Zen Fusion Wellness Spa, where aestheticians and therapists call upon more than a quarter century of collective experience to pamper patrons with a menu of facials, body wraps, and massages. Though they specialize in diverse fields, the staffers share a common belief that no salon experience should be one size fits all. Signature treatments, such as the ultimate facial and hot-stone massage, reflect this philosophy, showering each guest with personal attention and varying to accommodate unique skin types and conditions. Clients in search of slimmer silhouettes can avail themselves of body wraps, which cocoon legs and torsos in a cellophane sheath designed to shed inches and promote the growth of nascent wings.
The experienced aestheticians at The Veranda Salon and Spa stay current on the latest salon and spa techniques to pamper extremities and beautify dermises. During the 75-minute mani-pedi, a skilled nail tech dips digits in a soothing soak before taming unruly talons and corralling cuticles in a flurry of inspired clips. The file then sculpts all 48 digits into geometrically sound parabolas ready to don colorful coats of polish or strut au naturel through the yellow pages.
Green Luxury Spa cleanses and renews skin suits with a plethora of skincare treatments as well as an in-house product line, R.B. Organic Skin, which is composed of natural and organic ingredients. Each guest is welcomed with healing sips from the organic-tea menu and, similar to graduates of sleep college, is swaddled in warm robes and fuzzy slippers. Over the course of 40 minutes, the organic express facial invigorates visages with a double cleansing, and an enzyme exfoliation sweeps the skin landscape free of dead cells and tumbleweeds. After the treatment, Green Luxury's experienced aesthetician can dispense home-care advice to maintain glowing cheeks.
Instead of a traditional sauna, which bathes bathers in steam, the infrared sauna heats bodies with safe, shallow-penetrating infrared rays that produce a refreshing dry heat to help sauna-goers sweat out water-soluble toxins. Feet tired from walking over burning coals and climbing the corporate ladder can benefit from a 30-minute Ionic Foot Bath. Calm barking dogs in a tub filled with saline water and ringed with low-current electrodes, said to aid in full-body detoxification. Afterwards, people paws relax with a subsequent scrub and massage, letting Healing Waters Healing Hands return a sunshiny feeling to bodies non-intravenously.
Using CosMedix peels, five types of facials, and expertly applied MAC makeup, the aestheticians at Changes Day Spa revitalizes faces. They also draw from a menu of waxing services to further enhance the body's aerodynamic properties, particularly important for launching into space. The team's massage therapists specially design prenatal massages to relieve lower back pain for mothers-to-be, and use hot-stone or deep-tissue treatments to ease chronic pain.
