If the tranquility of a day spa and the powerful treatments of a medical clinic were people, then Loreann Spa would be the product of their late-night rendezvous. The staff creates this union by balancing relaxing massages and facials with intense products and beautification methods, such as Bio-Dermology procedures. During this full-body treatment, mechanical rollers knead cellulite, warming skin to the point that fat particles disperse like a house party when the cops show up. Laser hair removal sources its strength from an equally deft Candela GentleYAG laser, which pinpoints follicles and shuts them down using focused heat.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
The scents of aromatherapy drift throughout Ash Britt Je' Ne' Celebrity Spa, where licensed massage therapists have been pampering stressed muscles with healing massage strokes since 1982. Inside fragrant massage suites, therapists rub away muscle tension with gliding effleurage strokes that stimulate circulation and set off toxin scavenger hunts sponsored by the lymphatic system. The gentle motions pave the way for firmer petrissage strokes, whose combination of kneading and tapping focuses on muscle knots and areas of particular stress. The massage cleanses muscles of impurities and loosens stiff knots, assuaging both quotidian tension and pain from overexertion, chronic conditions, and back flipping home from the Olympic closing ceremonies. Clients will also receive a complimentary spa gift to take home at the end of their massage.
Amid deep-blue walls with sophisticated accents, the stylists at Dramatic Results Salon & Spa create striking looks for a diverse clientele. Inside the full-service salon and spa, they alter the texture and length of tresses with relaxers, Keratin Complex treatments, weaves, and nonsurgical hair replacement. However, the staff also offers more subtle embellishments, such as eyelash extensions and highlights. In addition, a massage therapist is on hand to ease back pain caused by everything from everyday activities to every-other-day activities. They also offer a wide of array of services from body wraps that help detoxify and refresh the skin and lead to inch loss, to healthy skin treatments with master skin therapists.
