Asian principles of holistic beauty and wellness inspire the aestheticians at Bliss Spa, who use contemporary technology to achieve a beautiful new look. They often adopt modern techniques such as sending breakup texts to acne and using ultrasonic technology to treat cellulite. Focusing on faces, technicians can apply permanent makeup to give eyes a smoky look, implant mink eyelash extensions, or employ a boost of oxygen, vitamins, and ultrasound therapy to tone skin during facials.
The beauty experts at Bellissimo Lashes make faces their business. They can add volume to lashes with extensions that use FDA approved adhesives and lashes. To clear our complexions, they draw up customized facials that eradicate dead skin cells with deep exfoliation and glycolic acid. For a longer-lasting solution, they offer permanent makeup that includes everything from lip liner and eyebrow fillers.
Parlor Elan ensures its aestheticians are more than qualified by putting each of its employees through three months of rigorous training. By the time they hit the floor, Parlor Elan’s team knows how to use cutting-edge technology to spruce up appearances. They apply permanent makeup, embellish eyes with lash extensions, and darken hues with spray tans.
As a former model, The New Look For You founder Mimi Lee-Grier knows beauty isn’t as easy as magazines make it look. But she also knows the behind-the-scenes tricks that make it seem so effortless. Permanent cosmetics, eyelash extensions, and eyebrow tinting are three low-maintenance methods she uses to make eyes bigger, lips fuller, and lashes more seductive—effects that won’t smear or fade while swimming, crying, or both. She also reconditions skin with facials, uses her oil-painter’s hand to apply traditional makeup, and swaddles guests in the deep heat of infrared body wraps.
Mauve walls, checkered floors, and cushy black leather chairs mark the trail to Urvashi Beauty Salon & Spa's private treatment rooms. Inside each one, aestheticians pamper clients with 24-karat gold facials, microdermabrasions, and other services customized to individual skin concerns. But the staff knows that radiant skin doesn't end with a single visit, which is why they also give comprehensive advice for at-home skincare, as well as access to their secret Lazarus pit in the basement.
Klein Massage & Day Spa’s service menu is relatively succinct, but what the center does, it does well—it was nominated for Best of Citysearch in 2010 for tanning and in 2009 for couples massage. Aside from massage, Klein’s body treatments include stretch therapy, designed to help athletes prevent injury and boost performance. But the services are mostly about looking your best. Aestheticians clear skin with facials and microdermabrasion, and other staff members perform beauty treatments such as sunless tanning and lash tinting so that clients will look even more striking than if they covered two-thirds of their bodies in lipstick.
