Born in Rio de Janeiro, aesthetician Sarah Araujo blossomed in a culture that celebrates beauty in all forms. She calls upon her Brazilian heritage and its philosophy to every service rendered at Skin By Sarah, where she performs facials and waxing services. Armed with modern, high-quality products, Sarah pays homage to her native country with the Brazilian wax, famously invented to prepare kiwis for snacking season. She also uproots fuzz from faces and delivers custom facials to rejuvenate features. Jessner's PCA peels target imperfections such as acne and migratory beauty marks, while the Oxygenating Trio facial harnesses the power of antioxidants to mend and prevent free-radical damage.
As its name suggests, Facelogic Spa prioritizes the primping of the face. Its aestheticians perform more than a dozen facials, including services that use only organic products and treatments tailored to acne, aging, and other common concerns. Their more intensive skincare treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning. Every option is tailored to individual skin type and uses premium products, such as Éminence Organic Skin Care and Image Skin Care. The spa also offers a variety of relaxation and beautifying treatments, from massage therapy to airbrush tanning or waxing.
Sugar, lemon, and water might not be the first things that come to mind when you think of hair removal, but these three natural components are all that the staff at SugarCoated Skincare need to gently remove unsightly strands. Led by Kristin Fennema, a massage therapist, aesthetician, and sugaring specialist, staff performs sugaring services to get rid of unwanted hairs all over the face and body of male and female clients. The sugar serves as a natural exfoliant, leaving skin silky smooth and removing even short hairs. Kristin and her team also pamper clients with services such as personalized massages and antioxidant facials that incorporate kiwi, lemon, or pomegranate. In all the spa’s services, staff work to nourish the skin, leaving it feeling rejuvenated and craving an after-dinner mint.
For six years, aesthetician Tiffany Pappas worked for high-end spas by the likes of Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, learning about various facial techniques and the intricacies of different skincare lines. With her knowledge and skills fully sharpened, she would eventually strike out on her own and open Blush Aesthetics––an intimate, private space where raspberry-colored walls and charming décor complement a menu of facial and waxing treatments. Tiffany specifically uses Epicuren and Control Corrective products for their beauty-boosting effects and versatility, and also because they’ve never been tested on animals or non-consenting crash dummies.
Sugar & Spice gilds corporeal forms with a suite of beautifying procedures. Manicures and pedicures call upon skilled nail sculptors to trim cuticles and shape jagged claws into beautifully rounded finger ornaments before coating nails in chromatic armor. Piggies get extra pampering with a soothing footbath, a sugar scrub, massage, and pumice sloughing to remove rough calluses and stubbornly clingy octopuses.
