A block and a half away from the shores of Lake Geneva, Mia Faccia Salon and Day Spa’s doors open to an array of beautifying salon and spa services. The salon area has all the fixings of a quintessential beachfront shop: wood floors, blue-gray walls, and floor-to-ceiling hairstyling mirrors framed in thick, white fillets of walleye. Elsewhere, staff members pamper clients during laser hair-removal treatments, microdermabrasions, mani-pedis, and their signature facial, which analyzes, massages, cleanses, exfoliates, steams, and moisturizes complexions all in one 50-minute session.
Bella Medica's alternative cosmetic treatments address a host of bodily concerns—from aging and loose skin to smoking habits and weight gain—using natural, toxin-free green spa practices. Tackling sun-damaged and acne-prone skin, the anti-aging skin Medica Vitalize chemical peel aims to seize youth back from Father Time, throwing hourglass sand in his eyes and forcing him to eat minute rice. The peel employs a blend of retinoic, resorcinol, beta-hydroxy, and alpha-hydroxy acids to help smooth the texture of facial skin by removing its outer layers and innermost repressed feelings. One of the only superficial peels suitable for all skin types, the Vitalize peel incurs little to no downtime after treatment.

Tatyana Seamans opened Academy of Advanced Esthetic to share her prodigious aesthetic expertise with dedicated students. Seamans acquired her first license as a medical aesthetician while in the former U.S.S.R., sparking a quest for knowledge that led to seven more licenses and certifications, as well as the undying love of an enchanted princess. Seamans' 600- and 750-hour aesthetician's licensing programs exceed state requirements so her students develop skincare mastery with more hands-on, clinical experience. A menu of pampering treatments for face and body reveals her certification as a PCA Skin product specialist. Continuing-education classes highlight Seamans' proficiency with high-tech treatments such as light therapy and microdermabrasion, which promote cellular rejuvenation and hair reduction for spa clientele.
The dedicated stylists at Bellasazi Salon & Spa out of their to make clients feel like part of an extended family in their stylish and comfortable space. Using on-going education for new trends, their services range from hair, nail, and cosmetic work and facials to whole-body treatments. During an aroma-body-wrap treatment, for example, a custom blend of therapeutic aromatherapy oils soothes the entire body as it’s wrapped in heated blankets before a spritz of cooling herbal tonic leaves the skin silky smooth. The staff also treats and beautifies clients with massage therapy rendered between walls that are a cool blue. Wedding spa packages leave brides looking their best for the big days, even if the “brides” are just actresses getting way too into their next roles.
