Though the staff of Lana’s Place is adept at everything from tinting and cutting hair to grooming and polishing nails to administering effective body-slimming treatments, one look at the menu of services makes it clear that the eclectic salon’s main focus is skin. The team of skilled aestheticians uses a range of tools and ingredients to lend potency to its skincare services, including 24-karat gold that refines skin and microneedles that smooth wrinkles by spurring the body’s natural collagen production. The menu of services includes a mix of relaxing and problem-targeting treatments to help clients keep their minds clear and their skin glowing, much like meditating with a squirm of glow worms. This skin-pampering focus even extends to other salon treatments, where aestheticians might incorporate skin-smoothing products into pedicures, massages, and waxing treatments.
