At Facelogic, skin specialists incorporate a wide range of solutions and techniques to beautify skin during clinical-grade facial treatments. Miniscule currents of electricity stimulate facial muscles during noninvasive microcurrent treatments, which tighten skin and boost its production of collagen and elastin. Skin-resurfacing treatments may also be performed with Facelogic's DermaSweep machine, which specializes in flexibility, precision, and control, delivering results for a variety of skin types, while also reducing scars and keeping skin youthful. A mask with beads of encapsulated oxygen helps rejuvenate faces during the oxygen facial, a treatment more effective than blowing on your own face with a crazy straw. Organic enzymes soften and smooth the face during the skin-renewal facial. Facials like these?along with skin-resurfacing, chemical peels, and an array of products from makers such as Peter Thomas Roth?alleviate skin ailments from acne to wrinkles. They also helped net the studio a mention on Fox 8's list of the best facials in town; more information is available here.
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.
The geometric parquet of a brick-and-gravel path winds through the lush outdoor patio surrounding Cielo Hair & Skin Salon, acquainting visitors with the salon’s commitment to organic, natural products manifested in all of its haircentric treatments. Stylists usher patrons toward the burgundy-hued styling area, where they peer into individual floor-to-ceiling mirrors to watch new ‘dos unfold beneath cut, color, or texturizing treatments. The salon’s aesthetics team, meanwhile, employs products by Eminence, an organic skincare line from Hungary that utilizes natural ingredients such as pumpkin enzymes to plump up skin, ease acne, and grant skin a luminous glow bested only by a nuclear plant’s disco ball.
For as long as Lisa Johansen can remember, she's always had a passion for beauty. What began as a childhood infatuation with styling her own hair and nails blossomed into a careful path of study that included a 600-hour course in skincare and classes in the use of Murad and Image products. Today, the licensed aesthetician transforms clients out of her own intimate, one-room spa, welcoming them with complimentary champagne and a gentle request to turn off any cell phones or shoulder-mounted boom boxes. The quiet environment allows for optimum relaxation during services such as custom facials and purifying pumpkin peels, and helps lull hair into a false sense of security before it is waxed away from the brows, legs, stomach, or bikini area.
S&D SPA Body Wellness’s fleet of experienced stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians pamper guests with an array of relaxing and noninvasive services. Nicolette Nightingale, the spa’s licensed cosmetologist, styles hair using tricks she’s picked up in her 10-year career as both a model and hair stylist in the entertainment industry. Her colleague Brandi McMillan also has impressive experience with permanent makeup, having prettified faces for Elle magazine, the Emmys, and the Academy Awards. When not doing hair or makeup, the staff suppresses tense shoulder uprisings with customized massages and allows faces to glow with a variety of freshening facials.
Beneath the shine of 20 Lounge Nail Bar and Boutique, a singular purpose pushes it forward: to bring high-end luxury to the masses. Like a beauty-conscious cousin of Johnny Appleseed, the ever-expanding franchise has planted locations throughout California and Arizona, always pampering its clients with the same menu of services. Therapists, for instance, perform facials using Dermalogica's MicroZone products, which wash away acne, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or exfoliate the skin. Mani-pedis, on the other hand, polish and dress nails in a rainbow of available colors, rendering their surfaces complementary to freshly waxed legs or accessories such as a freshly opened box of crayons.
