For the electrologists and aestheticians at Elite Electrolysis, beauty starts with smooth, radiant skin. To achieve both, the team combines electrolysis and microdermabrasion treatments to alternately banish unwanted hair and render skin with the youthful radiance it hasn't seen since the day it left the cabbage patch. Rather than short-term solutions such as threading and waxing, electrolysis treatments vanquish all types of hair from all types of skin, virtually guaranteeing permanent removal with multiple visits. Microdermabrasion takes care of brown spots, wrinkles, and acne by sloughing off dead skin cells with ultra-fine crystals.
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.
With the time it takes to soak up the sun's rays or make it out to the tanning salon, getting a deep summer tan can be hard on a tight schedule. That’s why The Heat Tanning tries to make beautifying routines a little easier by offering salon hours that extend into the late evening and mobile airbrush tans that let clients darken in the comfort of their own homes. Wherever they decide to take advantage of the service, airbrush clients select from the salon’s three shades of Norvell HVLP tanning solutions, which can mimic anything from a long day at the beach to a long century in a sepia photograph. The salon also features four tiers of UV beds furnished with varying numbers of bulbs to speed up and strengthen tan accrual.

Spa Fiori’s team of trained aestheticians refines skin texture and treats signs of aging during its extensive medical facial treatments. The ReFirme skin-tightening treatment uses infrared light and radio frequency to tighten skin with a combination of old-school light signaling and cutting-edge radio code ($400). The treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production in skin, which helps to wipe away wrinkles, sagging cheeks, and under-eye bags. To pack an extra punch, smooth skin with a Skin Matrix IR treatment that uses gentle heat in troubled areas to stimulate collagen production ($300) like a confectioner studding vegetable gardens with marshmallows. Using a diode laser, radiofrequency, and cooling technology, the treatment induces skin contusions beneath the surface supported by a swift healing process to help erase face-casing crags. The FotoFacial addresses sun damage, spider veins, and hyper pigmentation with pulses of light that gently rejuvenate skin appearance ($300). All treatments incur little to no downtime.
The specialists at Skyn Clinic and Apothecary take a French approach to fostering clear complexions, meaning they place a big emphasis on proper skincare in the long run and don't perform services that provide only a quick fix. Botanical and essential-oil-based ingredients furnish services and products, including the spa's own custom skincare line, Skyn Clinic Custom Blends. Skyn Clinic uses only silk eyelash extensions and cruelty-free mink eyelash extensions harvested by carefully brushing minks for their loose hairs. A highly trained technician applies extensions lash by lash and uses a soft collagen pad to protect the bottom lashes, specialized glue to adhere each strand to an original lash, and two tweezers in case one pair gets stage fright. Each semipermanent extension can last up to two months with regular showering, swimming, and exercising. Skyn Clinic technicians also provide eyebrow- and eyelash-tinting services, as well as nonsurgical face lifts to help rejuvenate the eye areas with a collagen infusion and microcurrent treatment.
