Laser hair removal gets rid of pesky strands by targeting them at the follicle with two rhythmic handclaps and an intense burst of light. The beam heats the follicle to a controlled, sauna-like temperature, soothing the hair before it experiences a life review and a serene, fade-to-white farewell. Immediately following treatments, some clients may experience redness, but they will be professionally advised with a post-treatment skin-care plan to relieve whatever minor irritation may occur. Women can use today's Groupon to treat their underarms ($540/three sessions), bikini line ($607.50/three sessions), upper lip ($337.50/three sessions), or chin ($472.50/three sessions), and men can use it for their shoulders ($275 per session) or the nape or the front of their neck ($175 per session). As few as three to four sessions (spaced two to three months apart) are typically required to see permanent results, and customers can conveniently combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions.
You never know when a date, a job interview, or an old high-school rival might suddenly pop up, so Spa On The Square keeps its doors open seven days a week to help clients look their best no matter the occasion. A full slate of hairstyling services awaits, including cuts, updos, and highlights for both men and women. Nail technicians groom nails and soften skin during basic mani-pedis or organic nail services, which include ingredients such as milk and honey, chocolate, or herbs, and aestheticians reach for chocolate, caribbean sea salt, or seaweed during skin-softening body treatments that may be enjoyed à la carte or paired with a soothing Swedish, deep-tissue, or volcanic-stone massage. Spa On The Square extends its waxing services to men as well, manscaping fuzz on multiple areas including the stomach, neck, back, and ears. The spa even offers men's Brazilian waxes for baseball players looking to facilitate faster slides into home plate.
For more than 17 years, the staff at Sima’s Salon & Spa has made clients exemplars of high fashion with an emphasis on creativity and individualized attention. Before administering any cuts, conditioning, or color treatments, the team carefully considers various aspects of the client’s appearance and lifestyle. They assess the shape of the face, which can suggest what features are best to highlight and which would look best covered in hair. The salon's licensed aesthetician also takes an analytical approach as she customizes daily skincare routines with organic products by Éminence and uses hard wax to remove hair from brow to foot and everywhere in-between.
Aestheticians Melissa Jacobson and Stephanie Casey employ only organic ingredients within their candlelit beauty studio. Jacobson, a certified reiki master, and Casey, a certified aromatherapist, believe in treating the whole body and all of its manifestations in alternate universes. They excel at cultivating a sense of total peace, whether they're performing body wraps, deep-tissue massages, ear candling, or makeup applications.
