Marbled floors and a tiled reception desk reflect the glimmer of retro patterned lamps as essential oils perfume the Sweet Serenity Beauty Bar's lobby. Veteran beauty worker Nicole oversees technicians who dab nails with gel and standard OPI polishes, offering the guarantee of a free touch-up if regular polish chips within three days or gel polish chips within seven.
The salon's technicians also beautify skin with organic green-tea products, whisk away hair with hypoallergenic French hard wax, and exfoliate orange rinds from faces with fruit-enzyme peels.
Skin is the body's largest organ, say the pros at Anti-Aging Aesthetics, so skincare "is not just about looking good." Serving as a barrier against bacteria and toxins, and bearing the brunt of environmental stressors, skin deserves to be treated kindly and the spa's estheticians rise to that challenge. Facials, LED therapy, peels, and microdermabrasion are among the dermal pampering processes here. There's something for almost every part of the body, like the "back facial" that cleanses dorsal pores and smooths out wrinkled "kick me" signs.
Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.

A Touch of Spa doesn’t just help customers feel more confident in their appearance, it aims to pack in the relaxation of a mini-vacation into each visit. Inside private treatment rooms, while soft music plays and trained bald eagles fan the air, aestheticians ease tension from muscles with seven massage modalities, including a method that incorporates bamboo and Chinese cupping techniques. They also soothe skin with several European-style facials: signature facials with lavender cleanser and a juniper and tea tree mask, pore-cleansing facials with Lotus Moon products, and collagen facials with acai extracts. In addition to boasting experience in a variety of skin care and bodywork techniques, many of the licensed aestheticians at A Touch of Spa are also bilingual.
Because of the way hair grows, it takes more than one laser session to banish it from the body for good. It's with the knowledge of this process in mind that the crew at Dermani Medspa offers laser hair removal treatments both a la carte and as part of monthly membership programs. Certified aestheticians take aim at unwanted fuzz on nearly any part of the body, including men?s beards and hobbits? toes, using the Lumenis LighSheer Duet. They take a similar membership-style approach to beauty treatments such as microdermabrasions and chemical peels, as these services also tend to yield more dramatic effects over the course of multiple treatments. All of these services take place in a clean, modernly designed clinic painted in soothing earth tones.
