Unique Skincare Spa & Salon's menu is a balance of aesthetic services and wellness treatments. The team's specialty is treating blemishes, age spots, and other pigmentation issues, which they do with custom facials that might involve medicated acne masks or high-frequency treatments. Peels––both chemical and organic––and microdermabrasion target more intense problems, and facial bleaching can help reverse advanced hyperpigmentation or dark purple wine stains. Aestheticians put the finishing touches on faces with waxing and threading services, and nail technicians give hands and feet similarly lavish attention with french manicures, spa pedicures, and paraffin dips.
Those seeking internal therapy can opt for one of eight women's body treatments, which include hot-stone massage and full-body scrubs. Ear candling is a natural method for extracting built-up wax, and bio-energizer therapy furthers the detoxification process by encouraging the expulsion of toxins from throughout the body.
After she began working for a salon at age 14, Pina Baldassi knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to the beauty industry. This passion led her to open Pina B's Salon & Spa in 1987, and eventually expand the business 10 years later to add space for spa treatments.
One group already benefits from Pina's decades of experience, though—the staff at Pina B's Salon & Spa. Under their employer's guidance, the stylists work with clients to design flattering new looks. The aestheticians look beyond scalps to exfoliate bodies with blends of salts and aromatic oils, design custom facials using Oxygen Botanicals products, and uproot unwanted stubble with warm wax.
At Golden Wave Spa, staff members strive to provide each client with a relaxing, peaceful experience. That’s why they’ve created a soothing, oasis-like atmosphere where men, women, and overheated camels can enjoy a huge array of pampering treatments. From mineral salt scrub therapy to signature facials and eyelash extensions, the spa’s services beautify visitors from head to foot.
Romana Valji and Salima Nazir have been friends for a decade now, and Sanam's Boutique & Salon —named after Nazir's daughter—represents the blossoming of their bond since they emigrated from Pakistan in 2007. The dream began in their homes, where they designed elegant, richly embroidered shirtdresses and gowns. After a family friend announced she was having a baby and needed someone to help manage her fledgling salon, Nazir and Valji fused both businesses into the beauty haven that it is today.
In the bright front room—where lights resembling movie-set lamps spotlight mod black leather chairs—stylists use Goldwell products to create lush, long layers and glamorous blowouts. A semicircular cutout in the far wall reveals a shelf of OPI polish in the nailcare nook, where a cushy pedicure throne presides over a white table with UV lamps for curing Shellac manicures. One room in back reveals racks of Nazir and Valji's flowing, jewel-toned robes, which they encrust with floral-patterned kora and dabka according to their own taste or alter the shape, material, and color to suit their clients' wishes for elegant gowns or bespoke burlap sacks. The other chamber hides a comfortable table for massages and a diamond-microdermabrasion machine used by the staff's aesthetician in tandem with products from the Parisian skincare line Yon-Ka.
Champions of beautifying faces and bodies via noninvasive, advanced technologies, Renew Beauty Med Spa’s highly knowledgeable staff of medically trained and accredited physicians, nurses, and aestheticians spends their waking hours obsessing over how to better others’ skin. The staff upholds their desire to remain on the cutting edge of new procedures and products through hours of meticulous research, showcasing their findings by constantly updating the spa’s menu of services. Evidence of the team’s shared ambition can be found as they work their aesthetic magic in five offices everyday, removing unwanted hirsute patches via laser hair removal or expunging coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins during teeth-whitening sessions. As firm believers that a glowing complexion requires a commitment to healthy decisions, the team works hard to equip their patients with a posttreatment maintenance plan.
At Vera Medi-Spa and Salon, beauty isn't the ultimate goal; it’s merely a step in the staff's ongoing quest to help boost each client's self-esteem. To help customers feel more comfortable in their own skin, the spa's professionals wield Palomar laser technology to banish unwanted hair or clear away unsightly veins, age spots, and other imperfections. Those looking to repair their love-hate relationship with an outdated hairdo or glued-on top hat can put their heads in the hands of the salon's stylists, who update strands with L'Oréal Professionnel Matrix and colour products. Because stress can have a large impact on well-being, the spa invites guests to put their feet up during relaxing mani-pedis or lie down to enjoy the tension-taming benefits of an aromatherapy massage, and facials help erase signs of tension on the face with anti-aging benefits from Guinot products.
